Volume 1 of The Wandering Inn

It’s out! The e-book is on Amazon right now for the price of $3.99! I encourage you not to buy it!

Not unless you like reading on Kindle. Because honestly, if you’re reading the latest chapter you’ve already read Volume 1, right? This is just for new readers and to tell people that The Wandering Inn exists. I tell people to read the web serial right in the book’s description. I don’t want to take your money and the e-book is simply the web serial’s first volume with a nice cover.

With that said, I have an appeal! Please review the book! Anyone can do it regardless of whether they’ve purchased the e-book, and it would help me out a lot if you gave me a review. I don’t want you to just 5-star it; I’d rather you tell people exactly what you love and hate about the book, what keeps you reading after five entire volumes. I’d love to know as well.

Apparently, Amazon’s algorithms only acknowledge a product in the rankings after 15 reviews. At that point it will start promoting the book to other customers. If we can get to 15 reviews, it’ll already help out a lot. More than that and…?

Thanks for your help. I hope the e-book sells a bit, but I’m just grateful to be in a position where I don’t have to rely on it to earn enough to live off of. I appreciate everyone who pledges on Patreon, shares my story with other people, reviews the book, leaves a comment, or just reads. We’ve just started Volume 5 and I’ve finally released Volume 1. All those new readers will have a lot to catch up on. Thanks for reading!

  1. Ahem. Take my money. But no seriously, I consider the convenience of having your book on hand to read whenever I want, without internet access, to be worth the price. So take my money.

    • Thanks! I am going to work on Volumes 2-4 soon, but this is an important first step mainly in getting it to the attention of the general public. Thanks for reading and supporting the story. Hope there aren’t too many typos and like I said, I’ll keep editing and revising the e-book!

      • I would love to see a volume 1-4 roll up in an ebook format.
        even though I have read it all in the web serial having it in an ebook would be awesome.

      • I´d love having vol 2-4 as an ebook/mobi, too
        finished vol1 on my kindle while on vacation, for the flight back I had to print a few chapters of vol2 as pdf and read those on my mobile phone – not nearly as nice *g*

        all the best from Hamburg Germany

        • update: in a copy&paste orgy I copied all chapters of vol. 2 in a word document (a staggering 500.000 words, says word!) and then send the .docx to my Kindle via email. Worked perfectly, I can now read vol. 2 *g* Will become a Patron, of course! Thankyou for a great reading experience

    • Like I said, this is just the web serial version of the e-book with a fancy cover. I fix typos and change chapters on both the web version and the e-book, so there is virtually no difference as far as I know. One more reason why potential readers shouldn’t waste money and just read online!

  2. Bought and reviewed. Long term, I do hope you revise/rewrite the first few chapters as it was a struggle for me to get through them the first time. The quality improves exponentially by the time chapter fifteen rolls around, but I very nearly didn’t make it that far.

    Left that out of the review, but here’s to a successful future for the story and you.

    • Thanks so much! I do intend to keep revising my work. But to you and anyone else who reviews, don’t feel obligated to keep details out. Telling people exactly what you just wrote is very helpful! Glad you stuck with the story and hope I keep improving!

        • Just the pages on this website. I don’t update Royalroad with typos…which is a problem now that I think of it. Here’s a better place to start in my opinion, but I’m biased.

          • Hello,

            First I want to thank you for this amazing story. I cannot even tell how much I love it. Thank you again.

            I started reading your story on royal road. This is a great website when you don’t Know What or where you can read good novels. Please consider updating your typos in there. I switched to the wandering inn website super late and I think à lot of people might be like me.

  3. Great, I was looking forward to it!

    By the way, the book is not available for sale on amazon.co.uk (so I’d guess it’s only released in the US? Or North America?). If it shows up in the UK you’ll have another sale :).

  4. I will be buying the book, and leaving a positive review this afternoon. I really love your story, and quite literally look forward to the twice weekly updates. I don’t do patreon (perhaps one day I will get there), but this gives me another way to support your work.

  5. Aba, you are doing it wrong. Stop telling people not to buy it, reap the rewards for the amazing story you’ve written. Bought and reviewed.

  6. Can’t do, sorry.
    Amazon only let me review if i buy something.
    But soon i will buy your novel.
    Very soon.
    My gold is… disappearing those days.
    Too many things.
    Let me just get to level 30 [nerd] and we will talk about it.

  7. Bought, and love the fact that I have a book format copy! Please set up your Author page on Amazon so I can follow you there as well.

  8. Wow. I’m nearly halfway through volume one and I can say it’s easily one of the best things I’ve read this year. I’m enjoying it so much it’s honestly hard to put into words!

    Enough hyperbole; I’ve been reporting errors on my Kindle version as I come across them as it’s honestly something I enjoy doing (not as much as reading, of course, but it’s still satisfying to assist). Is that a worthwhile effort? Reading through the comments, you’ve stated that you fix errors as you encounter them; I’m just hoping you’ll be looking at one’s reported through Amazon too.

    Thanks so much for the Wandering Inn; looking at finding my place on your Patreon at the moment…

  9. Just started reading the series yesterday. I am enjoying it as Erin’s actions seem believable, although frustrating in a couple of cases. I will recommend it. Thanks for having it available for preview online.

  10. I found this interesting new ebook on amazon and read it. Very very good. And now with a bit of research I found this website. Thank you very much for publishing it as an ebook. I would never have found out about it otherwise.

  11. I had not heard of this before it hit my you might like’s on Amazon. I just finished the King’s Interlude and was interested enough to come find the website. TBH I actively prefer reading on the kindle versus a web serial – but with 5 volumes I might try to catch up a bit here. I’m enjoying it overall, though I can tell between the King of Destruction and the nearby Dungeon that it is going to go in a not-happy direction. As a D&D player I’m certainly enjoying the leveling though, it’s an entertaining direction 🙂

  12. Hi!

    Your Book already got promoted to me even with just 11 reviews.
    I suppose because of the litrpg genre i have read a lot latly.
    The wandering in was recomended to me in the sections below the message when i bought a different book 🙂

    Maybe that information is interesting for you 🙂 i love it, and i fear the darkness a bit but the level is still managable after the first volume. Now continuing online 🙂

  13. Are there any plans or intentions for paperback versions? I’d love to own all volumes on physical copies sometime in the distant future

  14. Well, free wins out over Kindle, though I prefer the latter when possible. If you’re not concerned about income from Amazon, would you consider making the book (and future ones) available under the Kindle Unlimited program?

  15. had your book come up on my recomened list and gace it a shot. as soon as i finished i had to go to the website to see what happens next cause i liked it so much! i’ve burned through the next 3 volumes and just start the 5. its going to drive me nuts when i get caught up, lol.

  16. It was fantastic!! Thank you for the good read! I have you a good review!
    I hope you get volume 2 up on Amazon soon. Yippy deserve too be making good money for this.

  17. I stumbled over the book at amazon by chance. I hadn’t heard anything about the webseries before. I found it amazingly different from other fantasy books because of the charater-development-before-action type of storytelling. I like it a lot and i do hope that there will be a Volume 2 of the Wandering Inn at Amazon anytime soon.

  18. Pirateaba, I love your tale! I also love that you took the time and initiative to make Volume One into something to be sold on Amazon. Otherwise, I never would have met your enchanting characters and fascinating realm. While I am only on 2.18, I am catching up a quickly as I can. Reading here on the website is a totally different experience. So many Comments! And so much interaction by you. I cannot wait until I am caught up. Did you say you were at 2 million words somewhere? That is a lot, and I plan on reading every one of them. Thank you again not only for making yourself known to the world on Amazon and Goodreads but first and foremost, for creating such mesmerizing serial. I cannot stop. Thank you Pirateaba!

    Keep up the good work!

  19. The book truly is amazing, and was an awesome read. You’ve really put together an awesome world, but I would appreciate it if it was a little less Game of Thrones! Man you can be ruthless sometimes! Anyhow, as others have said, the convenience of having it in Kindle is worth the money, and I am happy to put the four bucks in your pocket to remunerate you for your effort! Not going to pull a Pisces on you, for sure! Less drain on the battery and less strain on my eyes. Speaking of eyes, btw, first book had me crying my eyes out at times. Like death of Dumbledore crying. Man I hate that. Don’t worry too much about the cover – after all, no one is buying the Kindle version for the cover art. You can always go back and change that whenever you want, I suppose. Anyhow, keep up the good work!

  20. Well, if it is going to Kindle, reins are lines that guide horses and other beasts of burden while riding and driving. Reigns are the time periods that a particular king or queen was in charge, or regnant…
