Pub day for INK MAGE
Guys, I hope you will all give my new epic fantasy novel INK MAGE a chance. This is me, hat in hand, sincerely asking you to buy it and give it a read. Often when pimping on this blog, I simply make you aware of the new thing I've just published, I put it out there and you can pick it up or not as you see fit. No big whoop.
This is different. INK MAGE is my first novel of epic fantasy, and that's something I've wanted to try all my life. Yes, I've published seven other novels, but not like this. My first aborted attempts at writing a novel (back when I was a super nerdy teen) were stabs at a fantasy novel. And now ... decades later ... I've finally written the novel I've always wanted to write. (And for the record I am now a super nerdy adult!)
The cool folks at 47North (the Amazon imprint for science fiction and fantasy) are publishing the novel in serial form for a 1.99. just to be clear, you get ALL 8 episodes for 1.99 ... it's NOT 1.99 for each episode. Each episode will be delivered automatically to your kindle -- no fuss. Super easy. And when all 8 episodes are complete, it will be collected into a "regular" novel, BUT the price will go up a bit, so really, now is the time to pull the trigger on this baby. (But please don't pull the trigger on babies.)
Ahem. I digress.
So yeah, today is exciting and nervous for me. I sincerely and humbly ask you give INK MAGE a try by clicking right here. I believe I've pulled off the nice trick of making INK MAGE a complete story all on it's own while also leaving it open for two more books -- I mean, these things are supposed to be trilogies, right? But for that to happen, I need you awesome people to pick up the first one. I hope you do.
