Welcome to my blog

Hello visitors. On my blog I'm talking about my books, but also about what I'm currently working on and, maybe, some other stuff. Browse through my posts and don't forget to check out my older posts in the archives. If you are interested in my books, please, visit my website Fictitious Tales for more information and a few excerpts. You'll find more excerpts in my old website Herbert's World. Also, take a look at my second blog Herbert Grosshans, where I talk about fun-stuff and things that concern me.

Happy Easter to everyone. Hope everyone gets a bunch of Easter eggs filled with dreams that came true.

I had a little bit of good news. My publisher Melange Books put up my first book in the Xandra series 'Daughter of the Dark' for a free download with Amazon. 581 people downloaded the book for free and it generated quite a few sales already. I know, somebody will say, "What? You gave away 581 copies? That is insane." Actually, it isn't, because it is a form of advertising and it cost me nothing. Out of those 581 some will buy the other five books in the series and possibly some of my other books. Sales I would not have otherwise.

In fact, I'm already thinking of putting up another one of my books for free. The more people get to know my name and my writing the more fans I will attract. Simple arithmetic.
