Greetings hexers and machina jockeys,
Today emails are going out with the ebooks of Sister of the Circuit. By now everyone who ordered physical copies should have them in their hands, which means Isidore and Dax, Surge and Evite are ready to sear your eyeballs with their adventures.
It’s a surreal day.
For my part I have been working with the amazingly talented Jill Crenshaw, finalizing the audiobook. My plan is to have that launch on July 3rd along with the paperback and ebook publication date (you know, for people who aren’t awesome backers like you). If you’re the sort of person who likes your books read to you, it will be available on Audible and I’ll send out a link when it’s ready.
If you’re a fan of reviewing things, would you mind reviewing the book once you’ve read it? Every voice talking about Sister of the Circuit on Amazon, Goodreads, iTunes, whatever, is a huge help.
Thank you so much for your support, and have a great weekend.
Ready to have some fun?
You’re looking at some initial Animal in Man cover designs!!! Somebody pinch me - - This is really happening, isn’t it?!? There are elements from all three of these that I really, really like. While #1 definitely captures the proportions of the animal-creatures I see in my head, Inkshares has wisely advised me against endorsing a cover that potentially forms images for readers. I couldn’t agree more. #2 is probably the closest runner-up. I really like the minimalist design, how the cover managed to take my story and form an icon from it. Pretty cool! But what’s it really saying? There’s a fox… Some swords… Hmm… Exactly. Not much. #3 is solid too, since it really accentuates a defining characteristic of the story’s hero, Maxan, a fox with mismatched gold and green eyes. (That’s important, I swear.) BUT… again, his eyes aren’t what the story’s all about.
Now this… This is what the story’s all about.
May I present to you the desired direction, ladies and gentlemen, for The Animal in Man’s cover!! This one truly captures the sense of violence, danger, brutality, and darkness that Book I: Violent Mind is going for. It captures it so well, in fact, that I’m already dreaming of the cover variations for the rest of the series, Book II: Ferocious Heart and Book III: Undying Soul. Remember, my dear animals, this is not the final cover. Believe me when I say that you’ll be the first to know once that comes in. Thank you all, as always, for all the patience and support.
WE DID IT!
Thank you so much for having faith in the Pilot X sequel. I am BEYOND thrilled to get this going. Now I will begin the long process of asking for your patience as we get the book ship shape for publishing.
As promised to tide you over, here’s a link to my next book coming out this summer called Gallium. It’s in the same universe as my book Lot Beta.
The link here will work for 7 days. Hope you enjoy!
And thanks again!!
It’s been a long time coming, friends, but these little ladies have arrived. By now those of you who ordered physical copies should have received shipping notifications. When your books arrive, I’d love it if you posted a photo of them. I can’t wait to see how far the mech crew has spread.
This is a book that was driven entirely by you, the readers. Without the interest in this book, it wouldn’t exist. It would still be a jumble of graphic novel pages, barely a whisper of what it would become.
So today I celebrate you. Thank you for this gift of a book.
May the Code replicate eternal.
In case you missed the Krpton Radio interview, it’s now up on their podcasts. We had a lot of fun and they covered many topics. Check it out:
Just got my sample back from the audio book actor! Going to listen tonight and once it has approval, she’s going to dive in and finish asap. If you like to read through your ears, stay tuned! Mechcraft on audio is coming soon.
And something cool on Facebook going on:
"Incredible! Mechcraft is now in 5th place on The People’s Book Awards. You guys are doing it!
If you haven’t yet, please join the FB group via the link below, and vote in the pinned poll at the top. This is very exciting. And thank you in advance.
Thanks to your overwhelming support we passed the 3/4 mark and are barreling towards the 750 preorders we need to get Trigor published. THANK YOU!
With two weeks to go I feel pretty good about it but I think we’d all feel better if it was just, you know, 100% already. ;)
So to motivate folks I’m going to offer to give a link to a PDF of ANOTHER book I have coming out this summer called Gallium. If you ever read my book, Lot Beta, you’ll recognise the universe. It’s not a sequel but it’s set in the same world. MThis time it’s a woman in a salvage operation trying to make a go of it and having forces set against her when she discovers ancient history that powerful people don’t want discovered.
Anyway if we get Trigor funded I’ll send out a link to the PDF of Gallium to all backers.
So spread the word, and thanks to all who have been. Y’all are the best.
I’m starting a revolution. ANOTHER revolution, to be exact. Around the sun. And it begins today. Because today… is my birthday! Yes, that’s right! And I’d like you to know it’s totally OK if you forgot to get me something. Because it’s NOT TOO LATE!
For my birthday, it would be really great if all those who’ve followed The Animal in Man could make a pre-order. What you’ll get is a SIGNED COPY on September 25th. But, at the very least, it’d still be pretty swell if you followed me and my book(s) on Inkshares, and then hit me up on facebook and twitter (@BulletTime000). And at the very, very-VERY least click Like on this reader update. (It kind of makes me feel special. :D)
You should know, I got YOU something too. Coming up in June, I’ll have new character concept art to share as well as promotional giveaways as the September 25th release date approaches. (Hint: by pre-ordering NOW, you’re eligible for the drawing. Just sayin’!) Stay tuned!
As always, THANKS to all the supporters of The Animal in Man.
Let me get to the point: There’s a sequel to A God in the Shed being published an it’s titled Song of the Sandman.
“Oh great another campaign.”
Well, obviously it helps the publisher with the initial publishing costs, but more importantly, it allows me to offer some exclusive perks to my readers.
Pre-Orders get you:
Pre-orders also allow me to put together project page with information about the book which, let’s face it, is pretty exciting.
