The Circle of Sorcerers to Release October 26th, 2011

Posted by:

We have gotten a firm release date of October 15th, 2011, and the book is back with the editor following her first edit and my revisions. Now,we undergo the same process in the second edit, but it should be much faster than the first since we have gone through the whole thing, and the second edit consists primarily of negotiating any other changes not covered in the first edit.

Retailers may list the 25th of September as the release date until ...

The Circle of Sorcerers in Editing

Posted by:

The Circle of Sorcerers is in editing, and I’ve set a tentative date of September 25th for release. I should get the book back from Lynn O’Dell sometime this week or maybe next week, and then go through and make revisions as needed. If I’m confident for a September release, I’ll go ahead and begin finalizing everything for the 25th. I think this one can get out the door by October 1st.

A World Forsaken is cranking along as described in ...

The Omnibus Cometh

Posted by:

I am in the process of releasing an omnibus edition of The Survivor Chronicles released so far. It is the compilation of the first three books of the series in one eBook. That way, people who haven’t read the books yet have a chance to catch up before the last one is released around the end of September. It also comes with a slightly reduced price tag, making The Dying Times free when all three are purchased at the same ...

Falling Off the Shelf

Posted by:

Due to some sort of Amazon glitch, The Dying Times has “fallen off” the virtual shelf at that retailer. I can only say that saying it has been a stressful time since this happened is an understatement.

I’ve been working with Amazon’s KDP service to get the title reinstated, but it’s not back yet. The paperback editions of both books are still available, and the Kindle version of the second book is still up. Hopefully, it will be resolved quickly and ...

The Next Big Thing

Posted by:

I’ve been writing zombie stories for most of this year. Well, I’ve been writing zombie stories since 2009, but have only recently published them. I have one more in the series to write, and the currently finished book and the one to be written to release. I’ve enjoyed writing the zombie stories, and I appreciate all the positive feedback and encouragement that the series has received so far. It was my first adventure in writing and publishing at novel length, ...

Book #3 finished, going to editing

Posted by:

I’ve finished the writing part of Book #3, Prisoner and Survivor. This one details the experiences of a convicted murdered in the times of the living dead. I think fans of the series will be pleased in how it starts to tie everything together.

Time to edit and start working on the cover art. I have something special in mind for this cover, and then it’s the long, arduous process of editing and proofreading for me.

Much has been said of my writing style

Posted by:

From several less-than-stellar reviews on Amazon, I can only gather that many people who are now reading The Dying Times are not checking out samples of the book prior to purchasing or not reading the samples available on Amazon.

At any rate, I want to say to anyone who might find this post:  please read the samples of anything you are considering buying, you’ll probably be happier with your purchases.  Now, onto the rest of the post.

I think that the chief ...

Kickstarter Project Success and Other News

Posted by:

The Kickstarter Project has succeeded.  Thanks to all the pledges and support over these long weeks!  There were a couple of times in the project that I didn’t think we were going to make it, but I’m so glad that we did!  It reached the goal, so it’s time for a little saving and scrimping on my end to save up the rest for the advertising!

All of the pledges should be receiving the electronic version of the ...

The Dying Times is to be an Audiobook and more

Posted by:

Everyone calm down!  I’m not reading it myself, so you won’t have to hear my voice on there!  Now, let us continue…

Technology is a wonderful thing.  By using expensive advanced software, The Dying Times will be released in audiobook format for your enjoyment.  The first sample is available for those who are interested on The Dying Times official page.  Of all the voices available, I decided on the younger British female voice; it’s calm, relaxing, ...

Kindle Sales: 10k-15k on Amazon Ranking

Posted by:

As a follow-up to this article, I wanted to briefly post this evening that sales on the Amazon Kindle edition of the book are teetering around the 10,000-15,000 sales rank mark.  It seems to have stabilized right around this point, and that will be a good starting point for the advertising campaigns that begin this month and in January.  I am very excited!

The Kickstarter project ends on December 10th, so that funding should help dramatically with ...

The Dying Times has Arrived

Posted by:

I hold in my hand an accomplishment at long last.  The Dying Times has returned from the printer, and I have the first copy ever on my desk.  This is truly a happy day.  I have accomplished something that many people talk about, but few people actually ever get around to doing – seeing my first novel in print.

So, between now and the end of the month (sometime at or before November 22nd, 2010), you will be able to hold ...
