Magic ex Libris: The Next Chapter

Some of you might remember me talking about a 15,000-word novelette I was working on between wrapping up Terminal Alliance and starting on Terminal Uprising.

That novelette is called “Imprinted,” and it’s the next Magic ex Libris story.

It’s about Jeneta Aboderin, and it’s set roughly eight months after the events of Revisionary.

I haven’t set a publication date yet. There’s a bit of work left to get everything ready, and with Terminal Alliance coming out in November, I’m guessing it will be available in January or February.

I also haven’t set a price. $2.99 would be ideal, because that’s where ebook royalty rates jump from 35% to 70%. What do you think? Does $2.99 seem fair for a 15,000-word story, or should I bump it down to $1.99 and take the royalties hit?

Finally, as long as you’re here, what do you think of the not-quite-finalized cover?

I'm already a Magic ex Libris fan, and I have a good job, so I have no problem paying $2.99. I can't speak to what the difference would be in overall sales.

I'd happily pay $2.99. But also gainfully employed

I've paid more and gotten less - $2.99 seems reasonable to me.

Two thumbs up for the cover!

That is a great cover. I love the words just rolling out of her hand, and she really looks like she means business.

$2.99 is reasonable to me. Also, I like the fact that the cover has a woman posed like a normal person rather than a contortionist. (I love your posing series, btw.)

Are you kidding? I'd pay $10 for that in ebook format. $2.99 is amazing.
