INK MAGE ... the serial is complete ... now what?

As I write this post, my epic fantasy novel has just completed its run as a serial from Amazon's 47North imprint.  Most of the action centers on Rina Veraiin a young, exiled duchess who is gifted with extraordinary magical tattoos that give her kick ass powers.

The novel is full of sword stabbings and spell casting and a sex scene or two because we likes that, yes we do, precious.  Readers have been generous.  We're sitting on 58 Amazon reviews ... mostly 5 and 4 stars.  I'm optimistic.  I hope there is demand for a sequel.

One thing about the serial format: LOTS of people lamented having to wait for the next chapter.  Hey, I get it. I'm not big on patience either.  So now you can get the COMPLETE novel right here on Kindle.  No more waiting for the next installment!

Oh, and there are still plenty of people who are all "Ebooks my ass!  I likes my novels made of them dead trees!"  We got you covered.  You can preorder the trade paperback HERE.

As Douglas Adams might say, we now enter the long dark tea-time of the soul while I wait and see if sales justify a sequel.  I feel I've built a rich fantasy world, and we've barely scratched the surface of it.  And Rina has plenty of open skin for more tattoos.

If you purchased INK MAGE as a serial ... thanks.  If you haven't yet ... well, maybe the trailer below will nudge you in the right direction.

Catch up with INK MAGE

Later today, episode 7 of my epic fantasy novel INK MAGE hits Kindles.

If you're not familiar with Amazon serials here's how it works: You pay one low price (1.99) and the episodes are delivered automatically to your Kindle or equivalent app.  So if you jump on board today, you'll get ALL of the episodes up to this point and then the final episode will appear next week as if by magic.

So hop on board and catch up.  Check out INK MAGE.
