Great news everyone. Thanks to tremendous support Crow’s Gambit has hit 251 Pre-Orders. That means it will get published under the Quill imprint!
There are still about 34 hours left in the campaign. That means there is still time to lock in some of those Pre-Order perks if you haven’t ordered yet (or you have a friend how hasn’t).
Thank you everyone for helping make this happen. I will continue to keep you updated as we shift into full editing and production mode.
More will come...
Congratulations we have hit 220 Pre-Orders on Crow’s Gambit! I really (enormously) appreciate the support you have all provided. But...when everything is said and done I still need 30 more Pre-Orders and there are only two days left in the campaign.
I need some of you to purchase an additional copy of the book...soon...tonight if possible. Several of you have already purchased multiple copies of the book and I think you. Some of you haven’t purchased any yet. However, I’m betting there are at least 30 of you who will be willing to help me out.
To help wet your appetite I’m including the following snippet from later in the book.
“Who are you?” she finally asked.
“You can call me Mr. Smith.” She gave him a patronizing look. “You could also call me a dirty son of a bitch. I could really care less.” His smiling expression never shifted. “You could say I’m with the opposition.”
“You mean the people who tried to have me killed? Two, three times now?”
“It was actually four.” He turned and smiled broadly. “You might not have noticed one. Dale and Gloria are actually quite good.” He returned to watching the crowd.
“And is that why you’re here now? Attempt five?”
“No. My specialty isn’t in that area. It’s in negotiation. The previous attempts on your life were made by overzealous members of our group that I must apologize for. I believe the best course of action would have simply been to talk to you and explain what was at stake, instead of driving you into the arms of Darrow.”
Happy weekend Supporters of Crow’s Gambit.
The good news is you should have just received a short narrative titled Prologue Version #2. Taking advice from some of the writers over at the Listeners of the Dead Robot Society I’m reworking my original info dump of a Prologue. This draft also gives a little bit of the background for one of the later characters in the story, Tish.
