Hey, everyone! Our first round of crowdfunding hit 280 preorders, which is amazing! That’s over a third of what we need to hit our mark, which means there’s a really easy way to cross the finish line: if everyone can bring two friends with them, we’ll be in there.
For now, I wanted to do something to thank you all for your support up to this point. But I wanted to hear from you about what you’re most interested in. Should I post more of Andra’s chapters? Are you interested in the other characters? Would you want to learn more about the magic system or the various people and cultures in the world? Let me know, and I’ll put up some new content soon. In the meantime, spread the word as fast as you can, and together we can make it!
We’re still getting more orders, so keep sending out the crowdfund and sharing the Facebook page! In the meantime, as a way of saying thanks, I’m giving you all 10% off the physical version of my first novel, BODIED. Just go to https://store.bookbaby.com/book/bodied, select the paperback, and use the coupon code KODY10 at checkout!
Did you know that the wood frog can survive having 70% of its body water frozen solid for a month or more? It may sound like an ability you’d only find in a fantasy story, but I promise you it’s completely true. In fact, real-life animal "superpowers" like that were the inspiration for the magic system in "Final Days," where I mix fact with fiction. One of the fun challenges of the book is to guess which magical powers come from real animals and which come from mythical creatures.
I’ll be sharing more fun reader’s-guide, behind-the-scenes info on the new facebook page, so come by, check it out, and share it out! https://www.facebook.com/The-Final-Days-of-Kobold-Kodys-Frontier-Exposition-and-Tonic-Show-106484508307944
We hit 100 preorders today! Thank you so much for your support, everyone! To keep the momentum going, I’m going to try to think of some fun ways to promote the book. Would you all be interested in a reading, like I did for my first novel? Should I tease some details about the world, the characters, or the magic system in the book? Let me know if you have any ideas!
