New Release & Audio Book Projects

Hi everyone!

We’re excited to announce (for anyone who hasn’t seen the giveaways) that The Fiasco In News has released. Super powers, sarcasm, and the worlds leading kidnap victim, Adam Millard. It’s a really fun story. I’ll be updating the website pages to link to Amazon’s look inside sometime this weekend.

Here’s the Amazon link!

Now for the bad news, the audio book narrator we wanted to work with is swamped with other projects, so we’re still searching for the right voice. The Fiasco’s release won’t be on audio for at least another two months.

And to follow up that bad with good news, we’ve decided to take our unexpected funding and put it towards the audio book for Continue Online 2! I can’t find a happy panda. I tried.

 

While we’re in this territory. It’s super important to note that all future projects follow my own creative whims but are heavily influenced by reader and listener responses. If you check out any of my books, please consider leaving a review through any channel you prefer. Share it with a friend, post about it on Facebook, leave a review on Amazon (I read them all!) or even Goodreads. Your ratings are my encouragement.

I should also note that we’re working on a monthly newsletter, which will have early access to giveaways, draft chapters, share other authors upcoming releases, and so on. This is still being put together, but we want to reward long time followers with extras.

Still slaving away (somewhere),

The Fiasco In News Review: Sarcasm Is A Superpower

Hi guys!

I reached out to Jamie at The Comic Vault blog, to see if he’d be interested in reading/reviewing The Fiasco and to my delight he accepted! Well, today he posted his review, I’m absolutely floored. Thank you, Jamie, for taking the time to read, and to post a wonderful review.

Interview with Stephan Morse

Hey guys! Joleene of Amaranthine Night interviewed Stephan about his latest release, really great read and brought a smile to my face! Thanks, Joleene!

Amaranthine by Joleene Naylor

interviewToday we have Stephan Morse, author of The Fiasco in News, with us. His book will release August first. To celebrate, he has a Rafflecopter contest going on that you can enter for a chance at a paperback copy!

TheFiascoInNews800CoverRevealPromotionalJo: Welcome Stephan! Please tell us a little something about your newest release.

Stephan:  My newest book is The Fiasco In News, which follows Adam Millard­—a sarcastic and cursed person in a world of high superpowers like Marvel of D.C. universes. Adam’s power attracts superpowered events of all sorts and keeps him alive. Since he has no other powers of note, we end up getting a chronic kidnap victim’s point of view on all these hero and villain events. I took a chance to showcase less desirable abilities, how they impact people, those trying to find their place in a crazy world, and the repercussions of being constantly yanked around…

Goodness My Brain (Ramble & Signed Book Raffle!)

Well, those of you still with me, may have noticed this year has been low in terms of production. It’s not specifically because of a lack of new writing, but juggling a few new aspects while trying to get back to work. So, here’s the other ramble I wrote. This is a very brief piece on some comparisons between bad guys in some popular stories.

I’ve got an audiobook for The Fiasco In News hopefully to start recording in Aug. If we can keep on track, it will be one of the funniest things I’ve ever listened to. I hope to work with Pavi (the vocal artist that did Continue Online #1) sometime in Sept to start recording the second book.

Here’s the vague plan for July itself. I want to start searching for artists that can redo the covers on Continue Online’s books. An actual artist taking care of the covers would make them stand out more and avoid the recycled clipart looks they have now. Somewhere in the middle of that, I want to finish drafting Royal Scales book 4.

However, I’m torn on releasing more content in the serial fashion. At this point, the first three books are ‘sample’ on my site (As is The Fiasco Book 1 now), so it makes it hard for new readers to get through the storyline and enjoy themselves. I’m not sure how valuable it is to people still out there. I’m leaning toward putting them up anyway, simply because it gives me a chance to sort myself out.

I have my April writing project done, the wife is going through it for first draft edits. We have a really short space western story that’s about 16k to post. There’s other stuff to get out one of these years when I’m sane…

As the final note, since the official release of The Fiasco is a month away, August 1st, we decided to host a giveaway for a signed paperback edition of The Fiasco In News! The contest is open to the US only (sorry! we will host a giveaway for the eBook version sometime after the August release date)

Semi Cover Reveal? The Fiasco – Needs Your Input!

layersfiasco2layersfiascolayersfiasco3

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 🙂
