Just a quick note to say we’re on track for releasing The 12 on September 6th. I’m already starting to get comments back from ARC readers and everything looks pretty great so far! I’m super excited to bring you the next book!
In other news, you’ll start seeing more of my books on other outlets, like B&N, this weekend. This is a bit of a trial run for me. I’ve had most of my stuff exclusively on Amazon for a while now, in part because exclusivity is required to be a part of the Amazon Select program. For those who don’t know, Continue reading “The 12 releases September 6th!”
Hello all! This post is for those who are interested in the publishing process – maybe because you’re curious, maybe because you’re looking to publish. Either way, I hope it’s informative. The next post will be back to stuff about my books. Happy reading!
Vellum. For those independent authors out there, you’ve probably heard about this software. Maybe you even own it, but aren’t sure if the upgrade is something you need or even want. I’m going to take you through some of the benefits of the software and my reasoning for my own upgrade. Continue reading “Vellum Press Review”
It’s really easy to do. Just go here: https://www.bookbub.com/authors/m-m-perry and click on follow.
I get it some people don’t want to give out their email because they just don’t want another newsletter, no matter how infrequent they are. Following an author on Bookbub means you don’t have to share your email with me, but you still get many of the benefits of my newsletter. For instance, Bookbub will let you know if a book I’ve written is on sale through them. They’ll also alert you if I have a new title out. It’s a convenient way to get new book alerts if you already have a Bookbub account. It’s nice for me as well, because Bookbub is an efficient way for me to alert people of my new books. It will link out to all the places I sell them from one spot. Continue reading “Have you followed me on Bookbub yet?”
I know I haven’t been making blog posts lately. I’ve been busy editing my book and making it perfect. I’m in the home stretch now, doing my final edits. I’m excited to say I have the first two chapters ready for everyone to read! You can head on over here and pick those up right now if you like. All you need to do to get them is sign up for my newsletter. You never have to worry about spam from my newsletter. I only send out announcements of my new books. I don’t send you weekly requests to buy my stuff, or share your email with anyone else. So if you are okay with six or seven emails a year from me, then sign up!
If you’re already signed up, you should’ve gotten a link to the chapters in the newsletter earlier today. If you didn’t get that, you can email me at email@example.com and I’ll make sure you get your copy of the preview.
You could also get your copy of the preview if you signed up to be a member of The 12 Advance Review Team. Let me tell you a little about what the team is expected to do. Continue reading “Preview The 12!”
In one of my Facebook groups, another author said he was doing a year of indie books. He was going to read only indie books for a whole year – at least that was my understanding of what he was doing. I liked the idea so much, I decided to run with it in my own way. I’m going to start up a series on my blog where I review independently published books that I think are just as good as any traditionally published book. You might wonder what my qualifications are to make such a distinction. In many ways, they are the same as yours. I don’t really think it takes someone with a degree or a career in critiquing books to determine if an independently published book is as good as a traditionally published one. Unless you live your life only by doing things others tell you to, you have your own ideas about quality entertainment. But it might help you to know my background if you’re trying to decide if my opinions have some value to you. 🙂

As those of you who are fans of my Facebook page or members of my newsletter already know, I commissioned a new cover for Whom the Gods Love. The old cover was one I made myself, but it wasn’t really turning any heads. It was functional, but that’s about it. I used 99Designs to see what professional designers could come up with to make my cover stand out in the crowd. I invited some of you to vote on the designs to see which one was the most inviting. This cover was the winner.
In writing news, I’m currently digging up content from The Arbiter that was cut from a previous version. While I don’t think it’s a full-length novel’s worth of story, it definitely merits a novella. The story is about Molly, Drystan’s adoptive mother. In The Arbiter, we know Molly is a mage, and that she grew up in the civilized lands. Continue reading “New cover for Whom the Gods Love”
You can now pick up a copy of The 13 in print or as a Kindle ebook from Amazon.
Almost seven hundred years ago, 14 ships launched from Earth. 13 were packed with families and embryos and given a mission. They were pointed in the direction of a new home – a distant solar system made up of two suns and three planets. Two of those planets orbited in the habitable zone. The third planet, a massive gas giant, easily twice the size of Jupiter, hovered on the outer rim of that solar system. The colony ships were to land on whichever of the two planets was most hospitable for human life and start society anew.

I’m finally coming into the final stretch for release of The 13. Members of my newsletter have already been given the first two chapters. You can get those free chapters here if you’re interested in The 13. This will sign you up for my newsletter as well, giving you the chance to get all this stuff first!
It’s been a hectic couple of weeks as I’ve been sending out advance review copies and getting all my ducks in a row. I’m aiming for a May 2nd release. I want to give some time to my team to make sure all their feedback gets incorporated into the final release. I still have a few slots open, so if you’d like to be a member of the M.M. Perry Advance Review Team (ART), send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does it mean to be part of M.M. Perry’s ART? Well, for starters, you get to read my books before anyone else. I know not everyone is interested in both science fiction and fantasy, so you can pick which books you want to be on the team for. If you join the team, you aren’t obligated in any way to comment on books you aren’t interested in reading. Continue reading “The Final Stretch!”
The 13 is almost here. I’m so excited about it. For those of you not signed up for my newsletter (go sign up!) The 13 is a science fiction book about thirteen colony ships that were launched from Earth almost 700 years prior to the start of the story. The Magellan is one of the colony ships at the back of the fleet. Communications with their sister ship, the Tereshkova, have gone completely dark. Continue reading “Late at night on a Saturday… and I’m making book covers. :)”
