Mailing List Update

Permalink

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!

Mailing List Bonus

Hey, everyone. I’m trying to get off my butt and organize a little more. Part of that is giving you guys the goodies you all deserve. It may seem like I’ve been slow lately, but really I’ve been just been working on a bunch of projects I have yet to share. The first draft of Worldshift, my LitRPG book, is coming along nicely at over 80 000 words, and I’ve finally figured out how to finish off book 3 of The Iron Teeth. I should be sending that off to my editor soon.

Anyway, I’m looking to create some sort of bonus to give out to people who sign up for my mailing list. Yes, I’ve had one for a while. No, I haven’t done anything with it. 😛

I’ve put up a poll on Patreon where users can vote for and discus what they would want as a bonus for signing up to a mailing list. Please check it out.

Chapter Delayed

Unfortunately, I came down with a bad flu a few days ago and have been coughing my lungs out. Thus, I haven’t been able to work on this week’s chapter much. I’m on the mend now though, so I will try to get the chapter out tomorrow or the next day.  Sorry for the delay.

Chapter Tomorrow

Due to a bit of writer’s block and some unexpected happenings the chapter that would normally be released today is being pushed back to tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience.  I’m working on it, but there is just no way it will be done.

WorldShift: Virtual Revolution

Permalink

This post is about the secondary writing project I’ve been working on for the past while. The series will be called WorldShift and the first book is titled Virtual Revolution. As I mentioned in a previous post a while back, I’m working on this novel while I write the Iron Teeth.

WorldShift is a LitRPG story. For those of you that don’t know, that means it features a lot of mechanics and features from video games such as MMORPGs, or that it actually takes place in a video game. Of all the stories bouncing around in my head, I chose to write a LitRPG because they are popular right now and because I wanted to try my hand at the genre. I have some unique ideas about how to use the genre in a meaningful way. The story will not be released as a web serial to the public, although patrons will receive lots of preview chapters. This is because I want to try writing a complete novel, instead of a bunch of chapters in sequence.

Plot: Ethan lives in a bountiful and unchanging world. Twenty years ago, the Prohibitions were passed. Fearing disruption and revolution, international institutions came together to ban dangerous technologies such as artificial intelligence.  Now, humanity idles away its days while they enjoy the easy wealth brought to them by automation. However, after leaving college and failing to find a job, Ethan’s life has become sour and stale. He spends his time immersing himself in virtual reality games. The most popular game available is Worldshift. It is a complete online world full of adventure that blends sci-fi and fantasy elements, and its creators have just launched a special event for the game called the Tower of Ascension. The first player to climb it will win enough money to set them up for life.

With nothing better to do, Ethan enters the tower. However, as his journey progresses and the event unfolds, it soon becomes apparent that not is all as it seems. Something is wrong with the game. Whispering shadows stalk Ethan, and the tower’s tests disturb him. As he meets other players, he learns that the game’s secrets have the power to shape the outside world. Worldshift might be a simulation, but very real dangers stalk Ethan. It’s going to take every ounce of his gaming skills and some inner strength he never knew he had to destroy the conspiracies around him, but if he does, the world will never be same.

Release Date: When it’s done. I have a bit less than half of the first draft written, so it is too early to say.
