Woohoo! This has been a long time coming (we commissioned a design in February) our first foray into illustrative covers and we’re quite pleased with the outcome. However we have a little snag on perfecting the book title and author font.
We need your help!!! I’ve created a poll for the three examples above that are possible cover choices – please keep in mind that we CAN move the title and author name around so those aren’t stuck in place so if you feel like one is good but you just wish the author name was higher/lower on the cover please feel free to make a comment here or on the poll itself! Absolutely any comments/questions/concerns are welcome regarding the three choices – I hope to hear from you all and get your help and opinions! Thank you 🙂
Hi all, hope you’re having a great weekend so far, I know we are because April has been a wonderful month for us and 2 awesome things happened just yesterday.
First: I mentioned a while back we had plans to pursue an audiobook for the Continue Online series… perhaps Stephan will write a ramble about the process, but it was a long one, much longer than we had anticipated, but we took away a lot of lessons and next time should be smoother! But it’s here, Continue Online Part 1, Memories officially has an audiobook, you can click the picture or caption to take you to Audible. OR if you are one of the first 5 people to email frustratedwriting AT gmail DOT com you will receive a FREE code for a credit to download Continue Online!*ETA these are US Audible codes* This is a thank you to those who still follow Stephan’s blog, have supported us by commenting here on his drafts/rambles/etc… buying his books and just being an awesome audience. Thank you!!!
Second: We received the first round of edits back for The Fiasco In News from our amazing editor – she cleaned house for sure, and there’s a bunch of feedback/comments for Stephan to fix now (yes, he just groaned lol). 100% worth it to produce the best possible book for all you superhero novel fans!!! Once he’s done with his side of the edits, we’ll send it back for a final round of proofreading and then if there’s interest, we will be offering up ARC copies of a fully polished/edited book! I’ll announce that sometime closer to release (we’re thinking late July). Oh and the cover…. oh yes, our FIRST(won’t be our last) illustrated cover, it’s fan-frickin’-tastic… just wait 😉
As always, feel free to leave comments/questions/concerns below!
I wanted to share an interview Stephan did with Scott Mullins at thisiswriting.com. You can check out the post here.
Scott’s site is an awesome resources for writers and readers as he has posts offering writing/marketing tips, and readers can possibly find interviews of their favorite authors or find new authors/books as he also posts book reviews/book excerpts(hint:excerpts of Once Lost Lords and Trials of the Chief are there too!) Thank you, Scott, for the opportunity!
So I just want to apologize for the email that went out yesterday about a ‘newsletter’ poll… you’d think I would have this figured out by now, right? *sigh* Anywho! I wanted to let you all know about the Amazon giveaway we’re running that ends tonight.
The latest release in the series Royal Scales is book 3 – Trials of the Chief is scheduled to publish on April 25th, 2017 and is available for pre-order at $.99 for a limited time only – through major book retailers, you can check the link here to visit your favorite store.
Without his memories, Jay’s body holds power that is beyond his understanding. Slowly, as he revisits old haunts, his memory begins to return in vivid flashes, but he can’t make sense of the things he remembers. Each use of his abilities reveals something darker and more primal, building a need for release–a release that remains out of his reach as he can’t tap into this need and what form it should take.
The Hidden could help but they have plans of their own which require Jay to stay clueless.
We have a campaign on Headtalker for Trials of the Chief that is in need of support, want to know more? This is the “How it Works” directly from the website:
