Only One Day Left to Raise Money for Doctors Without Borders
Pretty simple: Your donation supports Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (UK). The more you donate, the more lottery tickets you get. Winning gets you a bundle of signed, numbered, dedicated fantasy novels, some less known, some from big-name, big deal-authors. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a signed Ours Is the Storm!
Donating is quick and easy
I’ve done it. Never fear! Go to this JustGiving page and donate. Your American (or whatever) moneys are automatically converted. Every £1 (about $1.25) gets you another ticket to win, and all of it goes to Doctors Without Borders.
Can’t Donate? You can still help!
Go to Booknest.eu and share this link on your faceyspaces, your tweetagrams, your instabooks, your livejournal, from your car window, whatever. Help us out, get the word to friends and family, and get it out to the fantasy fans. Doctors Without Borders is a great cause and worth even just $1 if that’s all you’ve got.
The Victorious Death of Eliza Warden, Part One of the Wardens Trilogy, is out with beta readers. So far the feedback has been both great and very helpful. The entire trilogy was originally planned as a single volume, but came in around 320K words, more than three times as long as Ours Is the Storm, so it got split into three volumes.
I had to do some looking around to find out, but apparently this was the product of about four years of work. Soon I’ll move onto the process of searching for an agent or publisher, or simply decide to keep on self-publishing. All of that will be after I get my reader feedback and then go back through and make sure I used all the right words.
After that will be another fun part – ARC reading! If you or anyone else is interested, I’ll be giving out free Advanced Reader Copies of tVDoEW so that I can generate reviews in advance of the book release. Alert your reader/reviewer friends, direct them to this site, and get them to sign up for updates, and I’ll be ever grateful.
In other news, I’m nearly done with the first draft of the first book of my Mona series. Some of you read the short stories recently which were the genesis of this character, but Mona is an ass-kicking petty thief, vigilante, and reluctant hero. She resides in the frontier city of Canifar, where she’s on the run from a dangerous past in her home of Ria Vancha. Look for more news about that one going forward.
To celebrate tomorrow, the day of my illustrious (regular) birth, I’m going to give away a few digital copies of Ours Is the Storm all week. If you want a shot, follow me on goodreads or like my page on facebook, buy a paperback (for sure I’ll give you a digital then), follow me on twitter, sign up for emails, retweet me – whatever!
UPDATE: If you sign up for updates to my page, follow me, like on facebook, etc., I’ll happily send you a free digital copy of Ours Is the Storm. This orginally began as a birthday giveaway, but I want to give out free books! If you would like a free copy, just shoot me an email at david [at] dthoursonpalmer [dot] com and let me know if you’d like epub, mobi, or pdf. Thanks for reading.
