Like a brisk shadow crossing a dim alley, David Diegert returns in the thrilling sequel to Tears of the Assassin. Having saved his Mother, Diegert’s victory was short lived, he and his Mom are now propelled into deeper, more complicated trouble than ever before. Face of the Assassin continues the tale of the world’s most skilled, but reluctant assassin as he finds himself drawn into the darkly powerful world of Klaus Panzer and the secret society of Crepusculous.
I am very grateful for your support for my first book. I am now humbly asking that you check out the link to my new campaign page on Inkshares for Face of the Assassin. Like before, I am seeking pre-orders so I can demonstrate reader interest in the continuing adventures of David Diegert and the world of Crepusculous. Remember, Inkshares publishes the book after I reach the required threshold of pre-orders. You can be the first to make this happen by placing your pre-order today, the first day of the campaign!
Please check it out, the first Chapter is available under the READ heading. You’ll get to see what happens immediately after the end of the first book.
Thank you very much.
Your grateful Author,
William "Bill" Schiele
Greetings from a cold and rainy Japan. Finally got enough time and internet to get the reader update function to work on Inkshares through absolutely zero fault on their part and one hundred percent fault on old computers running a version of Windows that dinosaurs used. Things are progressing well, the first round of edits is done and we’re shooting for a publication date of June 19th. That means you will have your ebook ready, and the print version will be mailed out accordingly. Don’t forget, half of the pre-order are going to charity, so anyone that’s holding out on buying should do so!
Also, due to some issues beyond anyone’s control, I had to switch the cover art. For anyone who is disappointed by this, I encourage you to check out Millicent Barnes Comics for some amazing art and stories. I have a lot of his art on my walls, in fact.
The day gets closer and closer and I get more and more excited. I’m sure when I get to sleep it will all feel like a dream.
P.S. "P.S." doesn’t make sense in emails because you can go back and edit. It’s not like I’m writing in ink.
Ho Ho Ho,
Festive greetings Ripperists!
A sack-full of salutations to the many followers that financied the publishing of LOUISIANA BLOOD. By now I hope you have received your digital downloads and for those of you who sprung for paperbacks as well you should have received a shiny new copy.
If anybody has not yet received a digital or hardcopy of the book please let me know and I will rectify the situation.
As I have over 300 followers it is possible that some of you have not yet ordered a copy for your own pleasure…some of you may, even at this late hour be scratching your heads for a suitable last minute Christmas present for a difficult to please family member, or an Ipad wielding youngster. Well, your search is over.
What could be more fun than reading the INKSHARE’S NO 1 alternate history mystery book of the year!
Imagine Mission Impossible meets the Prestige and you’ll be in the right ballpark.
I welcome any feedback from readers good or bad. I’m already well into the follow up BRUGES BLOOD and planning VENICE BLOOD, so hoping to build a loyal following while learning from my readers what they enjoyed most about the series.
You can purchase a copy through Inkshares here:
Or on Amazon here:
I hope that you all are doing well! I wanted to send you a very short, but really exciting update: this past week How to Get Run Over by a Truck was in the Top 20 best selling non-fiction books on Amazon last week! We made it to #17 - which is nothing short of incredible! Especially almost a year after the book was first published!!!
Thank you for believing that this book would be successful, even when no one in the publishing world did. You have put this book into the hands (and ears!) of so many people!!! You are an amazing, generous and kind person. Words can’t express how grateful I am for your support then, and now!
WE’RE ROUNDING THE CORNER TO THE NEXT PHASE OF EDITING!!!
Dear friends and followers,
It’s been a very long time since my last update. My apologies for that. On the book front, we’re now in developmental edits ... basically arguing with an editor over just how much of the novel needs to be rewritten from the ground up. A couple of chapters are going to be juggled around, but I should probably not say too much beyond that. We’re at a point where Change is an unchanging fact of life.
It’s a superhero story, as you might have guessed, and very different from "Murder at the Veterans’ Club". The game was just released on Steam, Apple, and Android last Thursday, and I’ve pretty much spent the past couple of days grinning madly as the reviews roll in.
Is there anything else of note? Yes.
Landon Crutcher, author of "Monkey Business", has begun his campaign for "Black Cloud". I remember enjoying "Monkey Business", and I expect "Black Cloud" to be an even better outing. Crutcher’s writing this time about something he knows intimately from his work, and that always adds a certain special something. Like James Herriot writing about veterinary practice.
Ryan Smith has decided to publish his novel, "Goodbye, Angel", via Amazon instead. I’ve purchased it and read it, and I’ve found it an engrossing and enjoyable read, especially if you love the "hard-boiled" detective genre. I’ve recommended this before, and I continue to say ... Highly Recommended.
Until next time, being aware that "next time" could be A Long Time Off ... have fun, and keep reading.
I’d like for you all to meet my editor, Matt Harry. He has been amazing in the journey toward getting The Madness of Mr. Butler published. As I’ve said, it is a long process, but that process is all in the best interests of the story, and in your best interests as my readers, investors, and friends. This man is doing great things to help make Mr. Butler a great story. He is challenging me and pushing toward making the final product the absolute best it can be. He is behind the greatest successes at Inkshares, and Inkshares decided that my little book deserves the attention of an incredible editor. Please enjoy the blog entry and video regarding one of his recent releases, "A God in the Shed" by J.F. Dubeau, here: http://blog.inkshares.com/post/162717697220/it-all-comes-back-to-story
As for Mr. Butler, great things are happening, and I appreciate your patience as everything remains under construction. We are still looking at an early 2018 release date.
Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com
Why the new email address? Because I am running an internet thing called "Tall Tales Told" now. It’s a home for everything I’m writing and thinking. I’m featuring music, stories of both fiction and nonfiction, and illustrated poetry. Please take a moment and visit if you haven’t already. You can visit by clicking here.
Thanks again for your support and patience.
