Greetings, Faoii! It is Thanksgiving here, and I am once again so grateful for all of you that supported me and The Last Faoii so we could get this far. Whatever battle you’re facing, I hope that you have people who love you at your back and enough food at your table. I could not have gotten this far without you, and I am grateful to each and every one of you that has stood at my side.
While you’re reflecting on your own blessings, I hope you’ll consider helping a large group of hopeful and aspiring authors to spread the joy of reading and storytelling by pre-ordering Escape!, an anthology of fantasy and science fiction short stories. It features a stand-alone tale of the Faoii universe which I truly think you will enjoy. It’s only $2.99 and will be releasing on January 1st. I promise you’re going to want to read everything the book has to offer.
Click Here to pre-order it on Kindle and Here to get it in one of the other e-book formats.
As always, keep your shields up. We’re all in this together.
Greetings, Faoii! It’s been a while!
Doesn’t that sound like something you want to read? Damned right it does. And that’s just ONE of the stories that you get when you order your copy!
Pre-orders open up on Amazon on Friday (Novemeber 23), with a digital release date of January 1 (a paperback release will follow). This is not an Inkshares book, so you’ll be pre-ordering on the Amazon.com come Friday, not here.
ALSO! The Writing Bloc is giving away 100 free copies to bloggers and reviewers, as well, so if that’s you then make sure to go here.
If you don’t want to wait until January for new reading material, you can read The Last Faoii TODAY by getting it on Amazon, or listen to it RIGHT NOW on Audible (it’s free if you open up an account!)
That’s it for now, Faoii. But you better believe I’m going to remind you of this in 2 days.
Hey, Faoii. If you’re not already following Faoii Betrayer then you’re missing important updates about The Last Faoii audiobook, its sequel, and the upcoming short story. Make sure to go Here and hit that follow button.
Read the newest update HERE.
I know a lot of you have expressed an impatience with finding out what happens after The Last Faoii ends. Well, I just put up the first chapter of Faoii Betrayer up on Inkshares. This is a different world than what you’ve seen before. Read it for free here.
Well, my warriors. It’s been one full year since The Last Faoii was published. I don’t really know what I expected a year ago. By then we had worked so hard and for so long to build our army. We had fought and bled and screamed our warcries just so we might be known. A year ago we were unstoppable, tireless soldiers determined to to prove The Last Faoii’s worth. And worth it it was. I feel like many of you have forgotten the fight in that year, placated by 365 days of contentment. But the fight is not over, and I want you to see what we’ve accomplished so far. Beyond that, though, I need you pick up your sword again. Help us reach that victory from a year ago a second time.
Here are our accomplishments so far, my warrios. Be proud. Be strong. But do not be complacent.
(Note: You can click on any of the underlined words to jump to the page that has more info.)
1. The Last Faoii is available in Paperback, E-book and Audiobook versions! The audiobook is narrated by the incredibly talented and award-winning Sara Morsey.
2. The Last Faoii has garnered 60 reviews on Amazon, with an overall rating of 4.9 Stars! The audiobook currently has 1 review with a 5.0 Star Rating!
3. The Last Faoii has garnered 27 ratings and 18 reviews on Goodreads, with an overall rating of 4.48 stars. (This is partially because of my favorite rating of all time, a 1-star review that simply says:
4. The Last Faoii’s Facebook Page has 417 followers! And 355 followers on Twitter!
5. We have a Faoii short story (The Faoii of Ashwood) coming in an anthology before the New Year. Watch The Writing Bloc for updates!
6. And finally, Faoii Betrayer currently has 67 pre-orders on Inkshares. And I need your help again.
Faoii Betrayer needs 750 pre-orders before it will be real. There are excerpts already on the Inkshares Page. Read them, recognize that the writing is even stronger than it was in last-- and that this is worth it. I had hoped that a year between books would be enough. That people would be able to read Last, realize that the story is wortwhile, and use that to recruit new soldiers. I was hoping we would have a larger army by the time Betrayer started funding. I might have been overzealous in my ambitions, but I don’t think so. I’ve seen lesser stories than ours fund. And I am no less of an author, a friend, or a leader than those that who have succeeded where we are struggling. I know it’s possible. Help me prove it.
Take care of yourselves and each other, my Faoii. We are only as strong as our shieldmates. It will take all of us to succeed again. A year from now, I want to be able to give you more than this.
Updates, Faoii! This is huge!
Faoii! I have a new update about Faoii Betrayer! I’m going to start just posting my updates about the sequel, the audiobook, the short story, and everything else Faoii-related over there. Click HERE to see the 50 pre-orders update and HERE to follow the book so you can see future updates. I couldn’t have gotten this far without you. I won’t be able to go the rest of the way without you, either.
Shields up. I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield.
Updates, Faoii! This one’s short but I’m so excited that I can’t keep it secret any longer.
A lot of you have asked me for an audiobook version of The Last Faoii. So, I’m making that happen.
The Last Faoii audiobook is coming to Audible soon! Production is already underway and I can’t wait to give you more details as thing develop. After listening to dozens of auditions, I am so honored to announce that the the amazingly talented Sara Morsey will be the voice of the Faoii for this production. The moment I heard her read a sample, I couldn’t imagine anyone else being the voice of Kaiya and her Faoii army. Morsey is bringing an entirely new feel and level to this story, and I assure you that you won’t want to miss her telling of the tale.
Keep watching for more updates on this front. I hope that a successful audiobook launch will be one more step in the fight to make Faoii Betrayer real.
Keep those shields up.
I have SO MANY updates this week, Faoii! Listen up!
That’s it for now, Faoii. You have your orders. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and FOR THE LOVE OF ILLINDRIA ORDER YOUR COPY OF FAOII BETRAYER. It’s going to take all of us to make this book real. Some people might say it’s impossible... but they don’t have an army on their side. Do not fail me.
Updates, Faoii! Listen up!
