We are moving into the third quarter of 2022, which gives me an opportunity to update my progress as an author.
In June, I reported publishing two stories, a novella and a short novel. See https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2022/06/mid-year-report-on-my-writing-and.html
Since that time, I’ve been working on the sixth book in Taxyon Space, preparing other formats for my stories, and pursuing new social media venues.
NEW DIRECT BOOKSTORE
All my stories are available at a discount from my virtual store https://payhip.com/AuroraSpringerNovels.
I have been preparing paperback versions of my books. All my novels and novellas are now available in paperback.
Audiobooks are popular, however, they are expensive to produce and authors can expect a low return on their investment. Due to the recent improvements in AI-narration, I decided to test the option in GoogleBooks to create AI-narrated audiobooks. I chose the British female voice of Anya since I retain a British accent and many of my stories are written from the perspective of a female protagonist.
My short stories, the three books in Secret Supers, the three stories in Second Chances in Space, and my epic fantasy Bridget Bramble and the Wandering Elf are now available as audiobooks.
You can listen to chapters of the audiobooks at my YouTube channel: AuroraSpringer
