Filip Magnus over at Booknest.eu just posted a review for The Delivery of Flesh. He even had good things to say about it to boot!
The first book in my Bulletproof Witch series, The Delivery of Flesh, is now available. It can be purchased at fine bookstores everywhere, assuming you only shop at Amazon:
However, I’m assuming if you’re reading this, you already know the book exists. Likely you came across the ebook version, but did you know it’s also available in print? In fact, I’m giving away FIVE (5) copies of the printed version to the first penta-gaggle of people to send me their contact info via my contact page.
This contest is completely separate to any other giveaways that I have going on around the web. I’ll update this page once all the copies are gone, so if you don’t see a message at the top saying so, there are still freebies to be had!
Am I nervous? Not in the slightest! I’m looking forward to all the “positive” reviews the book receives, assuming anyone reads it at all. Also, if you’re reading this and are wondering why the book was so short, I offer the following in my defense:
I sent out preview copies of Episode One several months ago to a wide range of book review blogs around the net. The first of those is now up and available for reading:
We’re now exactly two weeks out from the official release of episode one, and I’m happy to report that I have finished the bulk draft for episode two as well. Now to get it cleaned up and off to beta readers!
I know this probably seems at odds with my last post, where I was worried about delaying works because episode two was only half finished, but in the last week or so I have laid down a truly staggering amount of words. I’m honestly as surprised as anyone. It certainly wasn’t my plan to write so much in the 11th hour, but the story was there in my mind and wanted out. Frankly I’m glad to not have it bouncing off my mental walls anymore.
So yeah, good news. I’m going to take a little break after this to get back to another project, but with luck will be pulling episode three together this summer for a release at the end of 2019.
Well, I was hoping to have better news at this point concerning book two, but it’s something of a mixed bag. Early on in November I was sitting around 30%, and expected to be done with the first draft by the end of the year.
As of today I’m around 55%. While progress has been steady these last few days, trying to solve a couple logistical issues with the overall series combined with the fact that book two has grown a bit in length (I’m guessing it’ll weigh in around 80k words now, compared to the 30k of book one), means that I’m looking at finishing closer to the end of January now. I don’t expect that to impact the release date for book two, but I may have to adjust my timetable for further books if they prove as lengthy as this one.
The silver lining, I suppose, is that there will be a lot more content in the next book (titled “Curse of the Daemon Beast”). The book will focus a bit more on life in Korvana, as well as some of the specifics behind hexbullets and daemons. Plus lots of tension, high stakes battles, and magic bullets flying everywhere! I’m looking forward to seeing it when it’s all done.
I just posted a story I wrote over on r/nosleep on Reddit, if that’s your thing. Link below:
This arrived weeks ago, but I kept forgetting to take a picture. I got my preview copy of the paperback from Amazon. An actual, physical copy, that I can hold in my hands!
Even if nothing else works out, this is more than I ever expected when I set out to become a writer. There’s just something wonderful about holding your own creation between your fingers, knowing that an idea has become a reality. It’s heady, intoxicating, and I’m already looking forward to seeing the next one.
Well, there are officially only 60 days until Episode One of Bulletproof Witch goes live. I’m also about 1/3 done writing the first draft of Episode Two, which puts me on track to be done with it by the end of the year.
Beyond that, its just editing, editing, editing. The time is just going to fly on by, I’m sure.
