Moving Forward

Ours Is the Storm – 2nd Edition

Hey all. I’ve parted ways with my distributor, which means Ours Is the Storm is off the sales sites for a short time. That means, however, that I have the chance to make some alterations that I’ve been thinking about. This might include some cool new stuff, like an updated over, a pronunciation guide for the Huumphar names, and a map! We’ll see how it all comes together, but in the meantime I’m busy getting the files ready for Ours Is the Storm; 2nd edition.

Indie Books Feature for Ours Is the Storm

Indie Books on the Interwebs

A while ago, I applied for an feature on indie books on Literary Lightbox. LL’s Indie Spotlight features twelve authors per year, one each month. The list is specially curated out of a pool of many millions (possibly jillions) of applicants (Probably, I don’t know).

Yesterday, I got this:indie books epic fantasy novel award finalist Ours Is the Storm Literary lightbox

2016 Indie Spotlight

Loretta Milan over at Literary Lightbox has named Ours Is the Storm as a 2016 Indie Spotlight Finalist. Literary Lightbox is a book blog and writing community attracting over a million yearly readers. The site’s full of book reviews, articles on writing topics, and all kinds of great stuff for both writers and readers.

Spotlight Winners

Ours Is the Storm joins five other selected authors and their books: Carrie Morgan, with The Road Back From Broken; Michelle Louise Cox, with A Girl Like You; Ellie Holmes, with The Flower Seller; Gary Corbin, with Lying in Judgment; and Terri Lee, with Paper Castles. These writers will be featured along with me in the upcoming months. Big congratulations to all of them!

I’ll be appearing on the site sometime in the next few months. Doing what? Who knows! Probably answering questions and waxing lyrical about judo or cartoons or the importance of beer, so keep your eyes open.

Tell Your Friends or the Squirrel that Lives in Your Attic or Whoever

As always, please help me spread the word about Ours Is the Storm and about my web serial, RAZE. If you know someone who’s into reading fantasy, let them know – or, remember that the holidays are on the way, and who doesn’t love books to curl up with like a nesting gazelle (that is a thing, right?) during the winter? I’ll tell you who. Replicants. Beware.

For those of you indie authors out there who might be reading, consider submitting your book for the Indie Spotlight here.

Review time!

REVIEWS-Help-Authors-760x760Hey everyone. It’s time for me to push on y’all a little bit. Many of you have left reviews for Ours Is the Storm, and for that I thank you. Others I’ve asked not to post reviews, as you’re personal friends and I didn’t want all my reviews to be from folks who know me. That time has passed, and now I want to get everyone who’s read the book to post a review*. Whether you’ve got only good things to say, or bad, please post either way. I’ll only grow if I hear the hard stuff, so don’t let that stop you.

*Even if you’re just going to leave stars and a word or two, it helps.

There are a couple of places you can review. Feel free to copy your review, post different ones, or post in only one spot. Everything helps.

Liking the reviews of folks you agree with helps move those reviews to the top, where potential readers will be most likely to see them.

Last of all, tell a friend about the book!

Thank you all ever so much for your continuing support.
