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!

 

Free Fantasy and Sci Fi eBooks! Plus News and Updates

happy girl reading book by the window in winter

Hi everyone, Samantha here! I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but with Stephan’s back issues I had a lot more on my plate, he has since improved but still feels shaky at times walking around. We’re moving forward on projects nevertheless and I have some exciting news to share.

As you can see from the clickable banner above, free eBooks are being offered from now until the 28th of this month, specifically fantasy/sci fi. Among the 18 books is Once Lost Lords Royal Scales book 1, if you haven’t had a chance to read it you can do so now, for FREE! Please check it out and feel free to share the page with others, they are even hosting a giveaway for an awesome coffee mug-seriously, I want it! Click HERE to visit the page.

All right, news:

As promised last month, the cover reveal for Trials of the Chief Royal Scales Book 3!

webrsb3

I am very pleased with how this came out! Do you guys like it? ALSO – we are looking for some ARC readers – 20 or so, if you’re interested in reading Trials of the Chief (fully edited version – different from the draft version on the website) with the intention of leaving an honest review – please send an email to frustratedwriting AT gmail DOT com. Haven’t read books 1 and 2 yet? Please let us know in the email and we’ll happily send you a copy of each book, .epub and .mobi format available. The official release date of the book is April 25th, 2017 and is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Kobo, and iTunes.

And the last bit of news for today, Stephan finally dipped his toe into the ACX audio book route and we’re happy to announce that Continue Online Memories (Book 1) will begin recording as of March 1st with hopefully a release by the end of March!

What’s new? Continue Online and Royal Scales – plus a ramble/reflection

Hey, all!

Samantha here, whew it’s been a heck of a new year already I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

So the ‘new’ – I recently tackled the mystery that was CreateSpace and ordered a proof of Once Lost Lords Royal Scales Book 1. We received it about mid-December and something magical happened when I held the book in my hands. I know it sounds weird as this book has been published for a year already in eBook format… but I don’t know there’s just something special about holding a physical copy in your hands, it cinched it for me that I wanted to work on formatting the rest of the currently published eBooks for CreateSpace publishing. I don’t know why we waited so long to go this route as we just jumped into eBook publishing no problem (and made a lot of mistakes on the way) I guess I was afraid of doing the same with a print version. Long story short – Once Lost Lords is now available in print! I also finished up Continue Online Book 1 and am waiting on the proof to arrive and will be working toward getting all 5 books in the series to print.

Speaking of Continue Online, book 5 is scheduled to be released on January 24th(print version will be in a month or two), even better? It’s fully and professionally edited (as mentioned before, we made a lot of mistakes in publishing the first book, no longer will we send out a book that hasn’t been professionally edited first). I am both proud and sad, this will be a complete published series and thus the end of Continue Online, but that also means Stephan and I can move onto his other works.

Royal Scales Trials of the Chief Book 3 is  due to be released in March… and I may be a little biased(only a little) but the cover is gorgeous… and I’ll be teasing/revealing that in February.

There’s a new ramble up about Continue Online Book 4 that was written before his ‘writing problems explained’ ramble so if it looks off – that’s why – I was distracted with other projects and didn’t get a chance until today to look at it and prep it for posting on his blog. You can check it out here!

In non-book related news, our daughter is almost 5 months old and already starting to teethe…just when you thought the sleepless nights were over(I know I’m delusional LOL)!

Take care and hope to hear from you!

Black Friday Sales & Give Aways

***UPDATE BY SAMANTHA***

Hey guys, I’m truly sorry, I had no idea I could set up a Kindle countdown deal in both the U.S. Amazon and Amazon.co.uk markets, I genuinely thought once I had used a countdown on one it would restrict the other, but thanks to a comment from one of our readers I checked and it allowed me to set up the countdown for books 1-3 in the Amazon.co.uk market as of 11/27 12:00 am GMT and will run through 12/01 12:00 am GMT. For some reason it won’t allow me to start book 4’s deal until December 11th (Amazon’s rules, I guess?) so that one will run from 12/11 12:00 am GMT – 12/14 12:00 am GMT.

Once again I apologize for my error, at least I know better for future deals 😦
