This isn’t major news or anything, but I now have an author account over at BookBub.com. It’s a site that has a number of blogs and news bits about publishing, but what’s most relevant is that they do giveaways and alert people to releases and sales/discounts on the authors they follow. And the more people who follow a particular author–at least if I understand the model correctly–the more likely that author is to be included in giveaways, and for news to go out about sales.
So, if you don’t already have an account over there, it’s worth signing up. And if you’d be so kind as to follow my author account, it’d be good for both of us. 🙂
More actual news soon.
In the ruins of the world, the last remnants of humanity find themselves caught in an impossible war, between the mechanical and the mystical.
Between the unliving and the undead.
THE IRON DEVILS
Coming soon from Ari Marmell and Omnium Gatherum Media.
Well, here we are. The first post of 2018, after a news-lite 2017. Hopefully I’ll have a lot more to share with you this year. I certainly hope to be more productive.
To start with, how about a release date? The fourth Mick Oberon book, entitled In Truth and Claw, is currently in editing, and is apparently scheduled to hit shelves on August 7th. (Though I imagine that date is subject to change.)
You can already pre-order it on Amazon, if you’d care to do so, and of course I’ll be putting up other links as they become available. I’m also hoping to have a cover I can share with you soon.
Hope you all had a great new year!
The sights and stories coming out of southeast Texas right now would be horrifying under any circumstances, but they’re hitting me especially hard. I grew up in Houston. I still have friends and family there. I have to do something.
It won’t be much, because I can’t do much. I don’t have a lot of money, and as an author, my income is erratic. But something.
So I will be donating at least half the profits on all three of my self-published e-books–The Conqueror’s Shadow, The Warlord’s Legacy, and Strange New Words–to relief efforts, between now and the end of September. Similarly, I’ll be donating at least half my September Patreon income.
(I say "at least half" because, as I mentioned, my income is unpredictable. If I happen to sign a new novel contract, or get a substantial freelance job, I may be able to afford to do more than half. But it’ll be half at bare minimum.)
If you don’t have an e-copy of one or more of those books, or wanted to subscribe to my Patreon for a month and see what it’s about (even if you don’t wind up sticking around after that), please consider doing so now. I can’t tell you how much I’d appreciate it.
The Conqueror’s Shadow
The Warlord’s Legacy
Strange New Words
Take care of each other.
The Conqueror’s Shadow, and its sequel, The Warlord’s Legacy, were my very first published original (that is, non-media tie-in) novels. I’ve written many and varied books since, but Corvis remains one of my favorite characters.
Now, some seven years later, with the help of the folks of at JABberwocky, I’m presenting new editions of both novels in e-book format. And for just a couple of weeks, they’re on sale, too. 😀
If you’ve liked some of my other books and want to see how this all started for me, if you’ve been curious about my work but waiting for a particularly inexpensive entry point, or if you just want to offer me your support and encouragement, now is a wonderful opportunity. And thank you, as always; I wouldn’t be here without you.
(I will fill in the links below as the books go live on the various sites.)
