Early November Update! Audiobooks, Patreon, and an Amazon Email.

Howdy folks!

Thank you everyone who has backed my Patreon page so far. Welcome to the Big and Little People Tribe! You have pledged $300 so far as of the time of this writing. That puts us just over half way to our second goal already and I hope to pass it up in November! I’m mailing out decks of Universal Cards to my Dark Wizard Hunter tier Patrons today. They will be signed my myself and my father, who created them back in 1977.

My alpha readers have received a short story I wrote from an upcoming anthology with another one following in a few days. (referenced below) Then, I start on Tallow Jones 2 and they will receive each chapter as I finish it.

Fun times! Also I received an interesting email from Amazon. I messaged them a few weeks ago documenting that my readers have been telling me that they have not been receiving emails when my new books are out. I finally received this email admitting that they haven’t been emailing my followers and claiming that they’ve fixed the issue:

Hello Trevor,

I hope this email finds you well!

This is Xxxxx  the Author Central supervisor. I’m following up with you regarding the email notification for your book “Tallow Jones: Wizard Detective” associated with the “Follow” feature.

After working along with our developers, we have been able to confirm the email notifications are now working properly. If some of your followers are still not getting the notifications, it could be related to their e-mail preferences on their individual Amazon.com accounts. They would need to edit these setting through the Your Account page on their own accounts.


I hope this information helps. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best regards,


Now, this message admits only that Amazon has fixed the issue where people who follow me on my Author Page weren’t receiving emails. This does not mean that they will email those people now telling them that my last three books have been released. It also doesn’t acknowledge the fact that they haven’t been telling past readers of my series that the books are out.

If you don’t know how to “Follow” an author on Amazon, here is the method. First you have to go to their author page. Mine is here: https://www.amazon.com/Trevor-H.-Cooley/e/B0083U46CM

Then you click on a button under the photo of the author. (See the one checked following on the image below)

Otherwise, to guarantee that you know what’s going on, subscribe to this blog or keep an eye on the Facebook Pate or join the Patreon to keep notified.

In other news, I have been listening to the early narrated chapters of Tallow Jones: Wizard Detective. Andrew Tell is doing a great job. I will post again once the book is available on Audible so stay tuned.

Also, I have been writing two short stories for a fantasy anthology coming out in December titled: Chronicles of Mirstone. You can pre-order here for just .99!


Anthology Cover-6

Next up, Tallow Jones 2. Stay tuned for a title reveal soon!
