Worldshift Update

Permalink

Hello, everyone! 

I thought I’d take the time to inform you all about the progress of my second writing project, Worldshift: Virtual Revolution. It’s a stand-alone LitRPG-ish book that I’m writing as a book, and not as a web serial. There are some early chapters up on Patreon that I released a while ago if people are curious.  

I started writing Worldshift mostly as an experiment in order to try something different and learn about different types of writing. Writing a book is very different from a web serial and I’ve learned a lot about long-term plotting and character development which should help me become a better web serial writer, and I know you all want that. I also hope that after learning so much from writing the Iron Teeth that Worldshift will show how I’ve improved my craft and be a great story that people enjoy. Remember, I’m new to fiction writing, and the Iron Teeth was my first real attempt.

 Anyway, I just finished the first draft of the book today, and it comes out at just under 150 000 words, which is a fair size for a novel, and it will probably get longer after editing.  

 Now, my plan for this story is to get to work on the second draft, which I have a lot of notes for. After writing the first draft, I’ve got a lot of things I want to change and add to flesh out the world and characters, which I can do because this is written as a book. 

I’m thinking that editing the second draft will take around a month, although I could be wrong, since this is my first time doing this. After the second draft is done, I’m planning on putting it up on Patreon so that VIP patrons can beta read it and give me feedback on the plot. I will then use that feedback to do editing and get a third draft done. That draft will then go to my professional editors so that all the typos get eliminated. Soon after that, I’ll get Worldshift out as an e-book available on Amazon.  

And, that’s what’s going on with that. 

Book 3 is Out Now!

Hello again readers! If you saw my last post then you’re probably aware that book 3 of The Iron Teeth is now available at Amazon! The paperback will became available sometime later today.

Also, I’m planning on putting my first book, A Goblin’s Tale on sale for 99c for a week or two, so look out for that. I’ve been told this is the thing to do now that I have three books out, and it will help new people find the series.

If you’re interested in the ebooks, don’t worry if you’ve already read the web serial. Buying the e-book will not only give you access to a revised and professionally edited version of the story that is worth rereading, but the book version also comes with several new chapters that form a new arc, The Suffering Souls. This new adventure takes place at the end of the book and is worth a read. It rounds out the story of Blacknail and several other characters, giving them some depth.

Purchasing and leaving a review is a also just a great way of supporting the author. Every purchase and review works makes my books more visible on Amazon, and helps other potential readers find my writing. If you haven’t bought and reviewed the first and second books then please do that as well. Why not reread the revised and edited story right from the start?

So, please head over to Amazon and check out my books! Every purchase and review helps a lot. Thank you all. I look forward to putting out a lot more content for you.

Book 3 Pre-Order Available Now

Hey there, readers! I have great news for you all. Book three of The Iron Teeth is now available for pre-order at Amazon! The release date is a week from now on the 22nd of August. The paperbook will became available right after the release of the ebook.

Don’t worry if you’ve already read the web serial. Purchasing the e-book will not only give you access to a revised and professionally edited version of the story that is worth rereading, but the book version also comes with several new chapters that form a new arc, The Suffering Souls. This new adventure takes place at the end of the book and is worth a read. It rounds out the story of Blacknail and several other characters, giving them some depth.

Purchasing and leaving a review is a also just a great way of supporting the author. Every purchase and review works makes my books more visible on Amazon, and helps other potential readers find my writing. If you haven’t bought and reviewed the first and second books then please do that as well. Why not reread the revised and edited story right from the start?

This book took longer than expected to release, because it required a lot of brainstorming and revision. Thankfully, the next book shouldn’t take nearly as long because I already did some of the editing and notes for it when I was deciding on how long to make the third book. I just need to write an arc of new content for it.

Anyway, please head over to Amazon and check out my books! Every purchase and review helps a lot. Thanks for everything.

Mailing List Update

I just finished up setting up my new enhanced mailing list and the sign-up rewards for it. If you’re already a member I will sending you an e-mail with a link to the rewards very soon. If you’re not already a member of my mailing list then you can sign up below! You will immediately gain access to a new full-size world map and a short story. These rewards and the topic of the bonus story were selected via polling, so I hope you like them. The story is entitled Another Goblin’s Tale and it is about Imp’s backstory. At 9000 words its about three chapters worth of content, so check it out!

I will be further developing my e-mail list in the future. Members will get timely notifications of deals and new book releases, among other things. I will not be spamming you or giving away your information, so don’t worry about that. You can trust me. 😉

One future project that I’m considering is to gather up all the sort stories and interludes I’ve written to create an anthology e-book. I’m thinking I will expand the interludes and then get them all professionally edited. After that I’ll get a cover made and put it in e-book format. This would then become my new mailing list reward. Many indie authors offer free books and I think it would attract more people. However, since my editor and cover artist are busy working on stuff for book 3 of The Iron Teeth right now, this won’t be happening right away. To say nothing of my own preoccupation with other writing.

Anyway, sign-up below to get access to the wonderful world map and a unique 9000 word short story you won’t find anywhere else!
