After finally releasing the Print Edition of Exhumation, things took a bit of a dive. Some of you may or may not know – but I have recently hit a bit of a health roadblock. I am no long working full time and I’m trying to understand what it is I need to do next with my life. As my health recovers, I have some time to consider what is good in life.
Maybe I will read more, grow my hair and become wise…
Actually, I have a lot of writing in the pipeline. But do I make the jump and hammer out tome after tome? I can do it, but should I?
Should I burn countless hours and coin for potentially no reason – especially if no one is ever going to enjoy the fruits of my labour?
So I thought I would give Patreon a go – a decent indicator if anyone is remotely interested in my continuing my writing. Until now, all my writing time and investment as been at my own cost. Writing, Artwork, Promo and Marketing. It’s been a bit of a drain, but unless you are one of the writing deities – this is not a cheap market to stay in.
So if you are one of those random folks who likes my work, or would like me to continue writing at a regular pace – please consider being my Patron. Small investment – MASSIVE REWARDS. No Pyramid scheme, I promise. It’s more of a Tetrahedron scheme. 🙂
After I published the first edition of this eBook, I found a scattering of typos.
Rookie Error #1 – read your own book!!! Even after all the edits and re-reads – read it one more time! Read it without your writing/editing hat on, and read it with your reader hat on.
I have fixed them now – and I hope that it is as perfected as it should be. I will be uploading the latest revision today and it will be ‘live’ tomorrow to be downloaded. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, I have instigated a cunning plan… a plan that you should mark on your calendar with a giant X
From September 30, 2017 to October 4, 2017 – Exhumation will be available as a free download via Amazon. That’s 5 days for you to download a free copy.
That’s right – *FREE!
Why? Well, I’m a new author and this is my first published book. I have spent a lot of time on this and I want people to READ IT!!!
I’m a rookie on the author scene – and just like a rookie looking for his first job, I need reviews and references. Good, bad or ugly reviews. You are the only person who can help me in this regard.
I need to know whether or not this book and or my writing is of any entertainment value to the reader world. I need to know whether or not to commit to continuing or finishing my other works!
So I’m going to thank you in advance for your time and review, and I accept your thanks in advance for the freebie! No problem and you’re welcome!!!
And just like a B’Astian creeps from the Engulfing Forest – so does Exhumation emerge from pre-order.
Tomorrow – Friday the 22nd of September – marks the day the public gets full access to the book.
Brutal book reviewers, hungry and bored readers, hateful cynics – arm yourself with a copy of the book and bite into the meaty fantasy that is the Exhumation – the 1st book in the Epics of Existentia series.
You can sink your teeth in earlier, by downloading yourself a copy of the glossary for Exhumation – a lengthy text that will be useful to have on hand while reading the main text. The glossary is extracted from the book itself – so no surprises there. Page link is below.
They say that “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover”. So, keeping that in mind – I decided to not have an illustrative cover for my pre-publishing advanced copies for friends, family, etc. I instead opted for ‘tomey’ and ‘tomish’ feel for the hard-cover and soft-cover versions respectively.
I like to believe it adds a certain element of mystery.
I am currently seeking a number of people to provide criticism and feedback on the manuscript. A free eBook awaits those who wish to partake in the review! You will get a mention and thanks on this website for your involvement.
Please leave a comment with your intention to read the manuscript and I will contact you with further information.
