    The Black Orchestra

    Those of you who know me from these threads will remember that I've been working on a WWII historical novel since 2008!

    It has now been published for the kindle and other eReaders.

    It's called The Black Orchestra by JJ Toner

    Here's one link to the book:

    Congratulations on getting it out there for readers! I hope you have lots of success with it. I'm curious about how self-pubbing actually pans out for those who choose that route (this is self-pubbed, yes?), so I (and others, I assume) would be interested in hearing how it goes.
    "Cotton. Cotton until Kingdom Come."

    WIP 1: Britannia c.AD 60. Trunked.
    WIP 2: Paris, 1780s.
    WIP 3: Channing. Antebellum South, 1854 Now Being Repped by an agent!
    WIP 4: Novella. Civil War w/a hint of supernatural.
    WIP 5: The Cotton Wars [prequel].
    WIP 6: Sci-fi-ish. In progress.

    The Black Orchestra is my fourth eBook. My first is a collection of short, fun SF stories, nos 2 and 3 are crime thrillers.

    It's great to get digitally published. There's great freedom. You don't have to wait years before the book reaches readers and the royalties are much better. There's no advance, of course, but advances tend to be small nowadays and anyhow the publisher only pays royalties after they have recouped the advance.

    The biggest headache - whichever way you get published - is building a following of real fans who want to read your stuff.

    The process is easy enough. For each of my books I have invested in a professional editor. A lot of self-published authors skip this (as it can be costly) but I think it's essential. The cover designs don't cost a lot and I do everything else myself.

    Blood Atonement sounds awesome. Was it difficult to write about the Mormons and were you fearful of upsetting them?
