Congratulations to my Giveaway Winner

Giving a shout out to the winner of the Shield of Skool for Goodreads.  Shannon Lynne from Canada is the winner. Yes, I thought it was funny another Shannon won the giveaway. My thanks to the 367 others who entered the contest.

More good news for my readers with a short story about the fantasy world of Kamin as a background to the Clovel Sword Chronicles. I’ve now got the Mythos of Kamin available online for FREE (Kobo.com or Smashwords).

Found this interesting epitaph:

The body of Benjamin Franklin, Printer, like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out and stripped of its lettering and gilding, lies here. … Yet the Work itself shall not be lost; for it will, as he believed, appear once more in a new and more beautiful edition, corrected and amended by the Author.

And for a lighter note, had a Monty Python flash today. Here’s a quote from Life of Brian.

“All right … all right … but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order … what have the Romans ever done for us?”

Now get back to writing, everyone…

Memorial Day Update

A video in remembrance for the day.

Also, it was a weekend for me to finally get my covers completed for the Clovel Sword Chronicles and uploaded into Amazon, websites, etc.  I hope others like the look as well.

Good news is coming out this evening as well.  A new short story (Mythos of Kamin) which is centered around the stories of the scribes of Kamin.  It includes a map of the world for those readers of the Shield of Skool.  It will be free on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I’ll provide links when finished.

New Trailer For Your Enjoyment

Clovel Sword Chronicles Trailer is now available on Youtube. Take a look and let me know your thoughts about the trailer.

I have 93 people in the contest for one free paper back book Shield of Skool on Goodreads. I appreciate the interest which has surpassed my expectations.  But, I’ll be happy to have more sign up. You can also sign up on this blog site (upper right email address) as well for another copy that is specific to views of my blog.

Another site for picking up the Shield of Skool.  It is available on Smashwords.com which distributes out to multiple other sites so many ebook sites should have this novel now.

For the upcoming Battle for Three Realms, I’m finished with page 88 of the first draft (nearly end of 3rd chapter) so I’m happy with the progress.

Want to send out special thanks to my 610+ followers on Twitter.com as well.  In less than a month, I really appreciate so many who have shown an interest in my work.

TGIF

Welcome to the weekend. Time for more fun and less work for some. For the rest of us, time to get some focus time on Clovel Sword Chronicles Book 2 – Battle for Three Realms Book.

Been working on this book and focus on marketing. Found an interesting site on a “Lighthouse Brand Building”  It’s a good spot to check out.

If you are looking for an agent, you might start out here.

And for a little humor. Great HONEST Trailer for those who liked Hunger Games…..the books.

Distribution of My New Book

Well, it’s been a quick week.  I’ve been happy to pick up some sales along with my first reviews.  Trying to get into as many markets as I can, I’ve added Shield of Skool to Kobobooks.com, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon of course.

Plus, to help get people to look over the book (unbelievably, many have never heard of me), I’ve have author pages on Amazon, Goodreads, AuthorDB, Facebook, and Bookdaily.com. Seems like I’m missing some others but it’s enough to keep up with as it is.

Meeting quite a few great authors via twitter.com, which is good and bad since they are my competition but that’s OK. Stop by and say hello. Some youtube humor below.
