Curiosities about online translators…



I have often been curious about the effectiveness concerning the accuracy of online translation services such as Google Translate and others.  So, as an experiment, I have translated both of my currently published books (Twilantia: The Making of a King; Part One and Twilantia: The Making of a King; Part Two) using Google Translate.  For the most part, the translation, I think, has been a success.  However, I don't speak German, French or Spanish. Being that I don't speak, read or write these languages, I have no way of knowing if the translations were of a quality to release as a book or not. 
So, I figured I'd give it a try and see if the translations worked.  I haven't received any word from the readers that have picked up the copies, but I'm hoping that I will soon.
If you're a reader of these languages, I welcome your feedback as soon as possible.  For your convenience, I'll include links to them below.
Thank you all!

E-Book publishing... Where I went...



I recently made a decision. I decision that I weighed and measured and found wanting... After looking over book sales from different sales vendors, I decided to follow one avenue and one only.  You see, when I first published, I was with Amazon exclusively.  Then, I thought "why have all of my eggs in one basket."  So, I looked around and found Smashwords.com. I saw that they put books out to many different places (barnes and noble, ibooks, etc...) and ended the exclusivity to Amazon.
After doing so, my book sales plummeted.  In all the time I was with smashwords, I sold 2.  That's all, just two.
On Friday, July 12th, as a promotion for going back to Amazon exclusively, the book will be free for the weekend. If you haven't read it, that's your chance to get it FREE. 
And yes, I'm working on the second book. :)

Sales and Changes…



As many of you know, on November 25, 2012, I said to myself, "I wonder what will happen…" and published Twilantia on Amazon for the Kindle.  I didn't know if the book would do well, or not. I figured if it flopped, then that would be it and I would go on to something else.  That was just over 2 months ago.
Now, Twilantia: The Making of King has sold almost 1,000 copies (at the time of this writing, 961) and is still going strong.  I'm amazed by it and really want to make sure that my readers get a superior product in both this book, part one and subsequent books.  I am in the process of going back through part one and double checking the double check for grammar errors.  I'm also going to be adding some maps of the areas of the story that are important to it.
At the same time, I'm working on Part Two.  However, I am not sure if I'll be able to get it released by the end of February now.  I'm thinking March.
I don't want to lower the expectation of the reader by giving a substandard product.  If you buy a Whopper, you want a Whopper.  If you open that bag and get a Double Cheeseburger, it's just not right…

Website Revamped! Guestbook & Forum Added!

Well, It's taken the last two days, but now the website (www.btbrowning.com) actually looks like a decent author's website... (IMHO)

Please take a look and tell me what you think. Also, if you've read my book, and haven't posted a review, please think of writing one and sending it to me to place on the website.
