Rune of the Apprentice and Inkshares News Update!
Apprentices and Masters, exciting things abound! We are all busy people so I'll keep it short and to the point via bullets:
- Most importantly, the preliminary round of edits to the RUNE manuscript are nearly complete! お待たせ致しました! They should be done quite soon and we will then hit the next stage of edits followed by cover art and soon(ish) publication! Yay!
- Sword and Laser is doing a "Sequel" contest with Inkshares! Aspiring authors, this is your chance to get your science fiction or fantasy book published! The top 3 books with the most unique pre-orders will be published with special Sword and Laser marketing! Although RUNE did not utilize a contest to get published, had it not been for the Nerdist contest, I most likely would not have had the courage to crowdfund RUNE / bust my ass to get this awesome publishing deal. So, aspiring authors go upload your manuscripts and get promoting, and readers, go pre-order some great books! (I also am available @StoneJamison for any questions on crowd funding and how to have a successful Inkshares campaign!)
- Inkshares Anniversary Holiday Promotion! For those of you who are tired of "Pre-Ordering" books, head on over HERE to get a special holiday 2 for 1 deal on these AWESOME ready to ship Inkshares books! Offer extends until December 11th so its a great way to not only get a wonderful book for yourself to read, but also pick up a FREE holiday gift, too! (This is a really sweet deal, folks.)
- Inkshares Review-a-Thon! On December 19th, leave reviews on currently funding Inkshares books using the Inkshares "leave a review" option and win cool prizes. Along with other Inkshares authors, I'll be hanging out on Twitter in the#InksharesReviews tag as we share our favorite book projects, answer author Q&As, debate the merits of astronauts with swords versus cavemen with lasers, and more! Then, from 6 - 8pm ET, JF Dubeau and Paul Inman of the WriteBrain Podcast will be hosting a video livestream filled with author interviews, review readings, and live announcements of prize winners! Prizes?!?! YES! Everyone who leaves a review on December 19th by 6pm ET will be eligible to win fantastic prizes! Go check it out HERE!
I have a few more exciting updates for you all, however, I will wait a little bit to share them. Until then, enjoy the Sword and Laser Contest, Inkshares Anniversary Holiday Promotion, and the Inkshares Review-a-Thon! とても楽しそう!
P.S. Before you ask: no, I was not the model for this drawing of Anti-mage, but I understand why you ask, and YES I am going to grow an epic mohawk and cosplay him! "They who live by the wand shall die by my blade." -The Anti-ist Mage of all Mages
