When I first thought about self publishing, I considered several models on how to put out my work. It has become time for me to go forward with one of those ideas.
File under “C” for Cheezburger.
Starting this September, I am going to serialize “A Light Rises in a Dark World” into three volumes. The first volume will be free, while the second two will be $0.99. They will have a new, simpler cover, and no maps, but the glossary will still be there for all the novellas. I will continue to keep the E-book full version out there for the time being at the same price. If people want the full story in one shot with the artwork and maps it will be there fore now. Need to give you some value for buying the full book over the volumes, right?
The current plan is to release them from over three months, and then hopefully, we will have book 2 done by the end of the year and those volumes and final books will be available at that time. Again, these volumes will only be in E-book format. The hardcover and print will still be full novel length only.
The exact date on when the first free volume will be released is uncertain but my hopes is it will be ready by the second week of September at the latest.
Now… I shall summon the power of my fanbase… I need reviews. Moar reviews! So if you have read the book, and enjoyed it, heck even if you haven’t enjoyed it. I need your reviews on amazon, or even, email me through the contact page and tell me what you thought so you can tell the world about it. I’ve gotten some very humbling reviews lately and thank you from the bottom of my heart. But let people know what you think of the work.
I also have had a few people wanting me to make an audio version of the ALRDW. I’d love to do that… but unless there is someone out there who has some talent to do it, I don’t see it coming up. I am not good enough nor equipped well enough to do a professional grade recording, or afford a voice actor and studio time. So, if this is something you have talent in, perhaps drop me a note and we can talk about it.
So that’s the news on the home front. Book 2 still moves forward. We’re solidly into the middle build and it’s getting fun. Right now I’m reformulating how to explain what happens. Thinking about what scenes must be in the following chapters as well as consider the repercussions of what I’ve just written. I can’t wait to share it all with you.
