My dear friend and a fantastic writer has their first romance novel out, Welcome to Elmwood Park. I’m doing my best to support them, because I know that it’s good (I helped edit it). It’s going for 99 cents, and worth a lot more
It’s quite risque, but extremely well written. Maybe even better than my stuff (and knowing how arrogant I am, that says a lot 😉 )
Hey everybody, guess what day it is? No, it’s not Hump Day (although everyday should be hump day) It’s BOOK RELEASE DAY! Welcome to Elmwood Park is available on KindleSelect. If you already bought it, it’ll be waiting for you on your Kindle This is not my first novel. Under a different name, I’ve had […]
It is 1855, and Nathaniel Hood walks between two worlds.
As the Watchmage of New York City, Nathaniel is charged with protecting, regulating, and administering justice to the myriad supernatural beings immigrating to the city. When his policeman son, Jonas, is brutally beaten by Veil Dwellers—creatures born of human legends and dreams—while investigating a kidnapping that has the city in an uproar, Nathaniel breaks his vow not to interfere with human society and joins the search.
While searching for the kidnapped infant heir amidst the broken lives of the supernatural on the Bowery, father and son discover the heir’s terrible secret born in ancient magic, lust, and blood. The Watchmage of Old New York is an expansion of the award-winning and highly popular serial from JukepopSerials.com. It’s a blend of fantasy, history, humor, and mystery, wrapped in a well-detailed and vivid mid-19th century New York.
There’s never a bad time for a book. Lately I’ve been reading books through the Kindle app on my phone. I’m never without a good read, and you shouldn’t be either.
Just a reminder: today is the LAST DAY to get The Watchmage of Old New York e-book for 99 cents. Yes! 99 cents! 99 pennies! A dollar minus one cent! 3 times 33 cents! All of these things!
Wiggle Cat and Wiggle Shaq like it. So will you. (See how happy they are?)
Watchmage is also shortlisted for a whole bunch of awards right now, but you’ll be hearing tons more about that in the near future. If you like Historical Fantasy, word play, mythological creatures, well-developed characters, interesting worlds, intrigue, and flying dogs, you’ll love The Watchmage of Old New York.
And, you know, 99 cents. You can’t even get cawfee for that little. You know how I feel about cawfee.
This month, to coincide with the 99 cent sale for The Watchmage of Old New York, I signed up to advertise in several newsletters. It worked. My sales have shot through the roof! I’ve never had a sales rank so high. At what rank do I get to call myself “best selling?”
I don’t know if it’s cost effective yet, but I think that it’s a better plan that just using free sites. Use both. Use Twitter, use your blog, join a promo club like #RRBC. Try everything.
Try everything: that’s a pretty good motto in life. You only level up through experience.
Level up. Become epic. Oh, and buy “Watchmage” while it’s 99 cents. You’ll (probably) not be disappointed. The only mediocre review it’s received so far was “3 stars. Imaginative, but silly. Good for teens.” I can’t argue with that. There’s a lot of absurdest humor in it, but plenty of gritty stuff too. It’s a pretty good mirror of this website: sometimes I’m dark and gritty, sometimes I’m philosophical and political, most of the time I’m weird.
I’m over the moon to announce that The Watchmage of Old New York is now available for preorder! Right now you can pick up the E-book for 99 cents. The paperback will come soon. I figured “one thing at a time.” The Official Release is October 27th, just in time for Halloween.
It’s been a long, strange trip for Watchmage. What started as a “brain refresher” short story after writing Song of Simon went on to be a serial, then exploded with popularity. Now it’s a series of novels (one so far) and possibly what i’ll be writing for the rest of my life (although I do intend on finishing up the sequels to Song of Simon).
Have I mentioned that I’m really excited?
I want to thank JukePop Serials for giving Watchmage a shot in the first place. I also want to thank everyone that supported it as a serial, and now as novels. You all rock.
I also have my mailing list set up, so that’s pretty cool too. I’m going to send out my first newsletter later this week. You can sign up for it here, and you get a FREE PDF of short stories (some of which take place in the Watchmage Universe, but I’m not saying which ones). I’m also going to include book deals from other writers, so you might find some new quality books on the cheap.
