Even if you've already read Dreamwielder, please help spread the word. Sales like these are a great way to lure new readers to the works of emerging authors like myself. Low risk, high reward, I like to say. On top of that, 99 cent sales are a great way to climb the rankings on ebook retailer websites, which in turn attracts even more readers in a snowball effect. So yes, please share, share, and share some more. I'll be happy to return the favor, even if it means coming to your house to do a live reading or whipping up something for you in the kitchen!
It's been a while since my last post, so here are a few more miscellaneous updates:
- Souldrifter got a great write-up in the Mountain Democrat, here, with some original quotes from me and a little biographical info about where I grew up and went to high school.
- Dreamrush got a great, story-by-story review from According2Robyn. (By the way: Keep an eye on Robyn Bennis. She's an author with her debut novel coming out from Tor books next year.)
- I've started work on a new stand-alone novel tentatively titled The Beasts of Qaza. The book will be a mashup of fantasy, steampunk, and lost world adventures.
- Prior to starting in on the new novel, I wrote a tie-in short story called "Twelve Generations of Woolies for a Mine." I'll have publication information for that in the coming months.
- I'm also in the process of planning book 3 in The Dreamwielder Chronicles. I could say that means I'm writing two novels at once, but unless I discover a way to clone myself, realistically that means I'll need to finish the first draft of The Beasts of Qaza before starting in on Dreamwielder 3.
- Lastly, a bit of very sad news. I lost one of my furry muses last week. Jager dog was my stalwart companion for the last twelve years. He was there as I finished up my MFA and my very first novel. He was there when I wrote my first short story to ever get published. He was there when I wrote Dreamwielder and Souldrifter, and while he enjoyed a good nap in my office while I wrote, he was equally eager to drag me out of the house to go on hikes and other great adventures. He will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.
