I've got a new book! And it's on Inkshares!
This time around, I've submitted a title for the Sword & Laser Collection Contest.
This contest runs from now till January 15th, 2016. The top 3 books with the highest unique reader pre-orders will be published by Inkshares, and possibly added to the Sword & Laser Collection. Simply put, it's a race to get as many orders as possible in a month's time.
So, what title did I submit for this contest?
Visit here to find out: https://www.inkshares.com/projects/the-slave-prince
You can read all about the book there and then consider ordering an e-book to help kickstart the project. I know I cannot succeed in this project without your help, but I don't want to hustle for money either.
Crowd-funded publishing is a tough industry to break into, but I believe it is a platform that gives hope to all authors - no matter who you are or where you come from. Succeeding a second time would mean a lot to me, and I'm hoping for another Christmas miracle this year. So, do consider an e-book :)
If you have any question, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maybe I can end 2015 with another successful book project. But just like last year, I know I won't be able to do it without you.

*On a side note, I did an interview with a fellow Inksharian on world building and The Battle for Oz. If you're curious about what I've to say, you can head over here for a read: https://epicfantasywriter.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/world-builders-jeyna-grace/
Dear wonderful reader,
The books are leaving the harbour!
And... The Battle for Oz is off to the printer!
I work in a publishing house where I'm constantly seeing books and magazines being printed. They arrive on my desk warm and fresh from the oven. But nothing beats knowing that your own work is about to be paperbacked. Thank you for helping me make that happen!
It has been a while since I last said 'hello'. So, hello!
For those who celebrated the Chinese New Year, I hope you had a wonderful time :) Hopefully, you weren't also blessed with a few extra kilos under your belt. Haha!
Anyway, I'm just here to give a quick update.
Firstly, if your friends used your referral link during the crowd-funding period, you will find a special email from Inkshares giving you store credit to buy other books. The email is self-explanatory, but I thought I should give you a heads up. You can order another copy of my book as a gift to someone, or you can check out the other titles, such as Abomination by the writer of The Book of Eli, The Cat's Pajamas by the author of Big Fish, The Dawn of Algorithm if you like poetry, and many, many more.
Secondly, during the Chinese New Year week, I got the chance to touch base with my developmental editor. She is currently working on The Battle For Oz and will get back to me this week. I'm excited to read her feedback as it will definitely help improve the novel.
Though a little delayed, the novel is definitely on its way. As per the production schedule, The Battle For Oz is to be released in September. If there are any more updates, I'll be sure to let you know. So until then, happy shopping with your credits and have a good week ahead!
