New Book Announcements
It’s official! The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson – Legendary Viking Warrior is now live on Amazon.
Off to a good start with lots of people already reading it 😀
A laugh-out-loud comedic fantasy novel about the forgotten and self-proclaimed legend known as Gustav Gustavson.
Well the bad news is after almost 14 days of waiting Amazon let me know I didn’t get picked up by Kindle Scout.
The good news is I’ve just hit publish on The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson – Legendary Viking Warrior so it’ll be available through Amazon real soon now for Kindle and in a few days for paperback.
I’ll post links once it’s live, so check back soon!
*Paperback still coming soon.
My latest novel – The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson – Legendary Viking Warrior – has been accepted by KindleScout and will be live for thirty days on their site. If after the 30 days are up the KindleScout team like what I’ve written I can be signed up for publishing with Amazon.
Want a shot at getting a copy for free? Well, all you need to do is nominate my book – click here to go straight to it – and if Amazon choose to pick up the publishing rights everyone who nominated it scores a free copy! Simple as that.
So what is the book about? The blurb:
This is the story of a true Viking hero you won’t learn in schools. Gustav the Great. Gustav the Powerful. Gustav the Dragon Slayer. A story so fantastic and shocking not even the History Channel would dare turn it into a TV series.
Every word of it is true. Totally true. How do I know? Because it’s all about me. Gustav Gustavson – Legendary Viking Warrior.
Experience the awesomeness of my unexpected voyage to an undiscovered land where I survive shipwrecks, arena death match spectacles, rampaging rhinoceraptors, naked and rather surly giants, and even dragons! Well, a dragon… all in my pursuit of fame and glory.
So basically a mash-up of multiple genres: Vikings, comedic fantasy, sword and sorcery, and a little bit of Dungeons and Dragons all wrapped up into a fictional biography which I hope you’ll find entertaining.
I’ll post further updates on my books progress over at KindleScout. The campaign will run through to about the 22nd of May, then I’ll find out within 2 weeks of that if I’ve been successful.
Wish me luck and don’t forget to nominate me for your chance to get a free copy!
Just a quick post because I forgot to announce this when I did it, but both books in the FTW series are now also available as a single download.
Because I know there are many people who prefer to buy a series as a “boxed” set, I decided to release Boneyards and Badlands as a single volume. You can save yourself a few dollars when you buy this way as well, as I’ve priced it lower than the total of buying each separately.
Paperback is also available in most bookstores where awesome books like mine are sold.
I’m happy to announce the 2nd book of the FTW series – Badlands – is now published!
This exciting conclusion to the series is available now exclusively from Amazon. Check out a sample or better yet, go buy it! For a limited time to celebrate it’s release I’ve priced it at only $0.99 so grab it while it’s cheap!
If that wasn’t enough to help celebrate the launch of book 2, I’ve also temporarily lowered the price of book 1. You can now pick up Boneyards – Book 1 of the FTW series for less than a buck!
Book 1 – Boneyards
Book 2 – Badlands
My latest short story – Death Is For Other People – is now live on Amazon!
Death Is For Other People follows the life of the protagonist who is one of only a handful of people known as ‘Eternals’ – those who are cursed to be reborn as new people after death. They retain all of their memories from their previous life, and can be born into any family, anywhere.
Death Is For Other People is a rebirth tale spanning hundreds of years, and a battle to prevent the extinction of all mankind. Read the rest of this entry »
Since last week I’ve been working steadily on my new work in progress, tentatively titled “The Obsidian Witch”. I’ve had to take a few days off from writing as I’ve been awfully sick from tonsillitis (for like the 3rd of 4th time this year mind you.)
That aside I’ve smashed out almost 7,000 words since last week which is a good start. I’ve been laying in a lot of scenes at the beginning and skipping parts that I haven’t yet fully thought through. So once I get back to those Read the rest of this entry »
Quick post this week because I’m exhausted from all the editing and formatting of FTW to get it ready for publication.
The goods new though is that finally, after many months of work my young adult novel FTW is going live! I’ve pushed the publish button so the eBook is now available on Amazon. The paperback version is also available from Amazon and bookstores where awesome books like mine are sold*. 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »
Last week I wrote how I was unsure what to call my work in progress. Well I’ve decided I prefer “Death Is For Other People” so I’m going with that. Over the weekend I finished the first rounds of editing, so next up is the stage where I’ll convert the text into speech and listen to it to pick up anything I may have missed before sending it off to my beta readers.
I’ve also been working on a cover, and I’ve been having a hard time with this one. In the end Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve had a really productive week since my last post. As I mentioned in last week’s post I’ve been working on ideas for a second part to FTW.
Well, I’m happy to announce that I’ve finished it so it’s now ready for editing! Yay!
So I did say if I got to 50,000 words I’d think about entering into Kindle Scout, well unfortunately I fell a few thousand short. The good news though is Read the rest of this entry »
