The Seriphyn Knight Chronicles is Now

Aligning to My Vision 2022, I will finish what I started by 2020. I created this series back in 2006, lingering in and out of cache servers for many years. No more will it remain a shadow or figment of imagination. I'm making this series a real deal. Here is how.

Is the World Ready for Change?

Well, a Zaldizko change that is. The Quest for Views is going on for Zaldizko @wattpad and @webnovel

To be Diverse and Inclusive

Doing my best to contribute to a forward thinking generation and future.

Still around to the traps.

Updated the cover today to showcase Famine.  Hoping this version ticks boxes and appeals to the greater peeps.

I'll be uploading this to Amazon, which should push out the changes in the next few days.

A Zaldizko Strategy





I might come across as fickle to some, but my changes is according to my dynamic marketing strategies as I face swift business changes between the User Content Sharing and Traditional Book Selling worlds. Both are adapting to digital transformation and incorporating artificial intelligent content strategies to increase target advertising with ethics. 
I want to keep up with that.
So, I've decided to cut the endings for Zaldizko and all books I'll self publish with redirection to a cheap paid ebook download. It's no different to paying per chapter.  
The benefit for my version is that the full book is sold to keep with the price of $1.69 give or take currency conversion excesses.
I've reached to what I feel is a reasonable price for novella length releases.  I'll price my <50K word books between free to $3, as a lot of bitcoin costs for 5-6 chapters equate to this amount on average. 
The Fourth Zaldizko will be priced more.  At this stage my quantitative research as seen that $4  - $8 dollars for an ebook 120K+ words is an average and fair amount consumers are comfortable to pay for a book this size.
Book selling is a marketing journey. Any author who doesn't know this is missing out.
So, that's my marketing plan coupled with my vision of producing quality, inclusive and diverse Historical Fantasy and Historical Fiction stories.

Tapread Trophy Moments


Oh my God. Tapread.com, you're making me cry with joy too much. Another weekly feature with The Fourth Zaldizko and Dragonieth taking front stage.  This is a first that I've had consecutive features on a web fiction site.

Last week was Zaldizko.

I've managed to gain some read interest.  Still not any reader interaction, which is a shame. This site attracts more silent readers than other web novel sites. So, all good in that respect.

Thank you Tapread.com for showing support to my stories. Appreciate it.

Re-engineering Success, Tapread & Wattpad

In my last post, I wrote about my realised failures. So, what does this author need to do to overcome this?

Aside from continuing to write there is also continuing to learn and appreciate varied opportunities and surprise gift moments.

Surprise Gift #1

Tapread.com gave me a pleasant surprise when I felt at my lowest as an author.

When I turned up to their site and saw my cover on their front page as a recommendation, I was gobsmacked. At first, I didn't realise it. 
I'm extremely grateful that they gave my book a chance and moment of glory.  Means a lot.

About Tapread.com

This online story sharing site is a bit of a silent quality player being new to the global content story market. 

I feel they are approaching their position in the right way, boosting a quality catalogue rather than relying on quantity and allowing us to add our stories to their site. 

Their site is sleek and provides a premium quality vibe.  Although their rating/review system is exactly the same as Webnovel.com's, since they don't offer coin incentives for having one posted, the reviews are genuine feedback.

I must admit the translation teams they use are high class, ensuring premium quality to the stories.  Although, there are some grammar imperfections, they're not any more than an anglophone who makes mistakes upon first posting.

If readers enjoy Chinese and now a line up of western original novels, Tapread.com is definitely a place to try out for these.


Surprise Gift #2

Wattpad gave me a pleasant surprise as well by inviting me to be an Ambassador with them, which I readily accepted.

I had to go through some training, but it has been worth it's price in gold.  I've fallen in love with the place all over again and appreciate them more.

About Wattpad.com

If writers ever felt they were telling their story alone and to an iceberg, they would fair well at Wattpad.

It is the only content sharing site I know where there is a solid and positive community presence.  I think Royal Road comes close.  I feel Wattpad has a more inclusiveness and appreciation of people from all walks of like.  They embrace diversity like it's air to breathe.  After having some time away, I came back really appreciating this fact. 

Now, I'm going to give it my best at being one of their Ambassadors.  I aim not to let them down.


Happy Kitty.

So, whilst my last post was a pity cry. I decided to turn this around and appreciate the gifts I have recently received.

All life is a chase of up and down glory moments.  That's what makes living fun.
