Welcome to my new website

Welcome to My New Digital Abode

I'm thrilled to unveil this brand new space where my stories come to life. For those of you interested in web design providers, I've moved from Wix (which is very good) to Payhip (which is fantastic). So, why the change?

Navigating the Winds of Change

The publishing world is ever-evolving, and us authors must evolve with it, or go the way of the dodo. The recent surge in AI technology has stirred us all up, bringing both challenges and opportunities to authors like myself. There have been dire (and some positive) predictions made about the future for authors in a world where AI might out-write and out-publish us, while our returns potentially diminish.

Aderyn's old website

My old site

For years, it's been broadly advised that authors sell their books directly as a pragmatic decision. Now, with the shifting tides in the publishing world, this advice has become even more pertinent. That’s why I’ve transitioned my website from Wix to Payhip, with a clear goal: establishing my own store to sell my books directly to readers.

If you have thoughts on Wix vs Payhip, or our future with AI, I’d love to see your comments below.

The Perks of Buying Direct

Buying books directly from an author's store does more than just offer financial support through higher commissions. It provides authors with valuable insights into reader interests and purchasing habits, data that big retailers typically keep to themselves. Your direct purchase becomes a powerful way to show your support and keep your favourite stories coming. What's more, selling direct means authors can offer exclusive perks to their fanbase (like the discount I offer below).

Exciting News from My Store

I’m thrilled to announce that my first direct sale, The Veridian Wars (Book 3 in The Secret Chronicles of Lost Magic) is available for preorder! Dive back into a world of mystery and intrigue with a special 10% discount when you order now using the code: veridian.
