December Updates

Hi all! Here are some December updates!

First off, happy holidays to everyone! I hope all my readers have a wonderful winter holiday.

Second, I’m hard at work on a new novel. It’s not part of the Aligerai series. Its working title is Eleanor and Elizabeth, though I’ll be looking for something a little more exciting further down the road. I’m about halfway done with this one and plan to release it early next year. As for the Aligerai series, I’m still about halfway through the third book and I’ll be working on that some more soon. I plan to release that one in late 2015, tentatively around September.

Third, I’m creating an email newsletter! You should all sign up for it. Why? Because you’ll get extra stories, deleted scenes, and access to newsletter-only giveaways. I plan to release a newsletter only once a month or when I have something to update, so I wouldn’t be inundating you with emails. The signup form is here and takes you to MailChimp: http://eepurl.com/3mLh9

Last, I’m mostly busy on finalizing the paperback versions of my first two books! When I’m finished, they’ll be available through Amazon. I hope to do some shows and appearances next year and I would also have the books available at shows for a show-only rate, but since I have no idea where or when I would be doing said appearances just yet, the paperback versions will be available online only.

I think that’s it for now. So don’t forget to sign up for the email newsletter to get cool extras! And happy holidays everyone. =)


New Extra!

Hi everyone!  I’ve just added a new extra to the site!  If you’ve read Rise of the Aligerai, you know there’s this strange country called Gennaios on a world called Corá . . . well, I’ve added a shiny map of Gennaios and other countries! Now you can get a visual of what things look like and how areas relate to each other.

Any misunderstandings of how geography and cartography work are entirely my own. I did my best to maintain accuracy in such things as where mountains could be placed and where islands might naturally appear. Also, do note it is NOT drawn to scale, as I am rubbish at math and can’t measure properly on paper.

Check out the map under the Extras section or just click here!

(Short stories are the next extra, and I think the first story will be posted next week!  So stay tuned!)


Extras on the Site

Hey there everyone!  Question for you all.  I’m working on developing some extras for the site here.  Some of my ideas are pretty cool, in my opinion.

  • Map of Corá
  • Character journals
  • A few short stories
  • Artwork (if I can figure out how to draw one day…)
  • A glossary of unusual terms I use in the books
  • Chronology of events that take place in Corá

What I want to know is, would people be interested in looking at/reading this sort of stuff?  The character journals, for instance.  My idea is to write “journals” from the point of view of the characters about their lives and what they see and think.  But my concern with this is, the journals may only make sense if you’ve read the book.  They wouldn’t be very good as introductory material for new readers, and may contain spoilers if someone hasn’t read the book yet.

What do you all think?  Do you have any other suggestions of things you would like to see?
