PUBLISHED – Shield of Skool is on Amazon

After many hours of writing, rewrites and edits, I’m pleased to announced the Shield of Skool has been published on Amazon.com.  Only took a few hours to get this uploaded and online in both print and ebook additions.  I guess that’s why Amazon dominates……Now comes the hard part of marketing this and writing book 2 of the Clovel Sword Chronicles.

Uploaded the book into Barnes and Noble Nook site yesterday and still waiting on that to come online.  Not impressed with this nookpress.com.

On a good note, also built out my author page on Amazon.

Final Edits Complete – Shield of Skool This Week

Well, it’s nearly here.  After many hours of edits and re-edits, the Shield of Skool is coming out this week. I’ll do an official launch on the day it is available online and in print. Due to the questions I’ve been receiving about my book, I put together a little overview about the Clovel Sword Chronicles which I’ve added below.

BACKGROUND ABOUT THE SERIES

This epic fantasy is set during an undetermined time on a different world that lacks dragons, fairies, goblins, and trolls.  With the Clovel Sword Chronicles, you have a world where the gods and humans maintain a tense co-existence serving the needs of each realm.  Jealous and petty gods sometimes breed with humans, creating demigods that live and travel between the realms.  It is the souls of humans that fill the dominions of the deities, an ancient pact between both sides.

On this planet, the monsters are real, created in the underworld and let loose to inflict pain and suffering on the humans to please gods with no soul.  Such atrocious beasts can be defeated by the great warriors using their skills with weapons and talismans forged by both god and human.

Dreams and visions are tools used in the schemes and maneuverings of kings and their followers. And heroes follow a code set by the first human to cast out the original deities, called the Guardians.  Now, a new hero is needed as gods and humans are fighting for control of the three realms.

These are the myths and realities of a world called Kamin.

Also, there is a new cover for the book that was completed. Here it is.

Also, have to point out my new trailer on YouTube, please look it over.

Been Much Too Long

Well, between taxes and edits, I haven’t made time for this blog stuff. Need to get my head around the concept of writing something daily that isn’t part of the Clovel Sword Chronicles.

However, I’m finding loads of great information from really great authors out on Twitter now. Must admit I was never much of a fan of tweeting but this seems to be a useful tool for information gathering, tips, marketing, etc. And finding some really nice writing.

Found a great blog from Ksenia Anske that I recommend. Some interesting ideas.

Also a great inspiration for those authors just getting started.….

Now back to our regular schedule program on Book 2: Battle for Three Realms.

Final Edits Delay

I’m sorry to say that I’m delayed getting to my blog since I’m doing final edits on the Shield of Skool (my Clovel Sword.com site) with my editor. Time just slips away. I have also been trying to get up to speed with my new Twitter account https://twitter.com/ShannonGBrewer as well.

Here are some great marketing items I’ve discovered recently.

And I spotted an interesting site about why Amazon with Goodreads is a positive item.
