Hi, everyone! This has been an incredible week - what a jump in readers, after such a lull! Thank you, all who have taken the leap and committed to this journey with me - because it is a journey. This book won't be in your hands for a while... and that means you get to see part of the creation of a novel that many readers don't get to see.
That's the real value in perusing works on Inkshares, I've realized: we might get to be part of the first planting and nurturing and growth of the next Harry Potter, or Dune, or Discworld. And even if none of our books reach those books' kind of market success, one of them could mean just as much to someone as those books do. Isn't that incredible?
BUT enough of this sappy stuff!
I hope you new people are ready for an incredible bonus, because it's all coming together and it's going to be incredible.
It's not just an idea anymore... it's becoming real.
Seriously. You guys have no idea how cool this thing is going to be.
This Monday, every one of my readers will receive in their email the Inkshares Authors Showcase Coloring Book and Activity Pages, Nerdist Contest Edition, featuring art and activities to draw you into the worlds of:
Blood Dawn, by John Robin.
Prophecy of the Stars, by Melissa Berg (also an illustrator for the book, and the creator of our cover)
Asteroid Made of Dragons, by G. Derek Adams (winner of the Swords and Lasers publishing contest on Inkshares)
A Beast Requires, by Jay Lockwood
Witches Undercover, by Rochelle Germano
Tournament of the Stars: Arbitration, by Victor Powell
Rune of the Apprentice, by Jamison Stone
Shadow of the Owl, by Amanda Orneck
The Seventh Age, by Rick Heinz,
and of course...
She Is the End, by Me
You'll get to travel through mazes, challenge yourself with crosswords and word searches, search and find hidden things, create a tournament patch that might be used in Victor's book, and color characters whose adventures you'll definitely want to read. So, if you haven't already, go pre-order these books!
