Announcing AssassinTales.com

Ambush_600x370_with_title

Assassin Tales is an all-new site dedicated to my Assassin Without a Name series of fantasy assassin stories. Every few months I’ll post a new story in its entirety onto the site. Currently, there are seven stories already written; I’ve already posted the first three stories in the series to the site and will continue with the others at regular intervals based on how far I get with writing the next stories in the series. In order to minimize the lag between postings, I intend to first build up a small backlog of stories. I already have many of these outlined, but they have yet to be written. All stories posted to Assassin Tales are complete and free to read.

Based on reader interest and feedback, I may also make these new stories available for download or purchase on Amazon.com. Posting to Assassin Tales costs me nothing. But for an actual published work the bar (and the cost in dollars) is so much higher. There’s professional editing costs, book cover costs, and a whole lot of my time formatting and proofing the digital Kindle file to ensure the reader experience is the best it can possibly be. That’s a level to which I do not intend to take the remaining stories in the series unless I can see a solid ROI so that I can at least recoup editing and book cover costs.

AssassinTales.com is therefore intended to satisfy my own self-interest in seeing the series completed. I love writing and world-building and creating awesome characters and throwing them into impossible situations. The business end of writing can really cloud all of that sometimes. Assassin Tales is therefore my attempt to not worry about that part of things and just focus on the fun aspects.

Visit AssassinTales.com today, read a story or two, and leave a comment when you’re done. Thanks.
