Wild Spirits of the Hollow Release and Blog Tour

Greetings! I have a book out. It is only available as an ebook at the moment due to some unforeseen issues with the paWS-ebook-coverperback. It isn’t me this time, I swear.

I am in various internet places all week, so I will be posting links. I should also mention that at least some of these places have a giveaway attached for the yet-unreleased paperback. I am in possession of the only 3 authorized copies in existence at the moment, and I’m giving 2 of them away on blog tour.

Anyway, here are today’s links. Please be sure to visit and like and comment if you have a few moments. Bloggers tend to like that sort of thing.

Bookity!

Hey-o! Though I have been absent, I yet live.

This book is out. I have a creepy story called Carnival in it.

A longer thing that I wrote will be available soon. It’s $1.99 while it’s in preorder. The price will increase after the book comes out on 8/28.

I am currently busy working on too many things and plan to return to the blog on a somewhat regular basis in about a month or so.

Oh, I DO have a blog tour lined up for some days in September, so I will post links for those stops once they are up and running.

I set it up through Bewitching Blog Tours, and I have to say that I am very impressed so far. Roxanne really has her stuff together. Here’s the link for Bewitching Blog Tours if you’re an author and you’d like to check it out. And no one paid me to say that. But, you know, if someone wanted to offer a discount in the future…  🙂

That’s it for now. I’ll return around the 28th. Party on, Wayne.

A Downward Spiral and a Smallish Absence

Greetings! I am currently caught in a downward spiral of perfectionism (which, regrettably, never actually results in perfection).

The bad news: I basically trashed my entire audiobook recording…again. I can’t help myself. Here’s the deal: so I switched out my recording equipment maybe…halfwayish? The new mic was way better than the old mic, which presented 2 problems: inconsistent audio quality and the better mic picked up more room noise, ie a slight echo.

The good news: I revamped my booth with better insulation. Foam is out; mover blankets are in, and that has helped tremendously. I already rerecorded the entire book. I did that in a week plus a weekend, so I guess that tells me how lazy I was previously being. I do need to edit those files, which I’m getting ready to go work on.

Due to a super heavy, self-inflicted workload, I might be absent from the blog for a bit. I have a lot that I want to finish in the next 2-3 months. I will definitely be on during mid-late August and early September for the Wild Spirits of the Hollow release. I will also still be running the Authors Read podcast.

I might pop in here if I just can’t help myself.

Catch ya later, percolator.

Moving and/or Shaking

Alright. I was mostly absent from the blog last week because I was CRAZY busy. Did I even post? I don’t remember.

So, I’ve got a few things going on. First, I got the proof for Wild Spirits of the Hollow.  Wheee! Here’s a picture.

I couldn’t get a clear picture with my phone because it’s being annoying. It probably wants more light or something.

Anyway, I was super happy that the cover art looked okay. You never know what might happen with photos. I was worried it would turn out too dark or too blurry, but it did not. As of right now, this is the only print copy, unless someone at Createspace took liberties.

What else. Oh, I did release a new thing that is not really a new thing. The prequel to Pestilence Rising received a fresh round of editing, a new cover, and a slightly altered title. Llewyn’s Faith is now Llewyn and is free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers and $1.99 if you’re not.

Link to the story on Amazon

I’ve been poking around my backlist to see if there was anything short I could line up for audiobook narration. I decided to do this one, so that was the reason for the fresh round of editing, etc. As I was in the process of giving it a makeover, I noticed that I really half-assed it the first time around: the editing, the cover art, the description. It was just kind of a mess.

The story was a promotional thing for the novel that goes with it, so I didn’t value it like I should have. I was also impatient.

I should add that in the back of the story is a link to subscribe to my email list and get a free download copy of Pestilence Rising.  So basically, you could get the story and the book for $1.99 instead of dropping $4.99 on the ebook. But don’t tell anybody.

In August, the book below is coming out, and I have a story in it! The story is called Carnival and is creepy, I hope.

I’ll post a link once the book is available.

Minor less exciting updates.

Beneath Oceans of Sky audiobook: Editing bits have been patched in, and I’m about to start my final round of listening. Next step, uploading files and dancing with ACX quality control people. Gosh, I’m looking forward to that.

Echoes (abbreviated title because the real title is so cool that someone might actually steal it) – This is my scifi/fantasy/horror novel that has a tentative release day in November. I finished the first read-through/rewrite today! Quite exciting. Hopefully, the next round of edits will be easier.

I think that’s all for now. Time to go work.

 

 

Partial Completion and a Preorder

Hey there! I have not one, but TWO exciting updates today.

First: the all-important audiobook update. All first-round editing sessions are now complete. All initial bits that needed to be rerecorded have been rerecorded. Next step is to patch those puppies in. I’m not doing that today because I have different tasks to attend to.

I also have a preorder! Wild Spirits of the Hollow is now available on Amazon for $1.99. The price will go up when the book comes out.

If you’re a blogger and/or a reviewer, I am planning a blog tour. If you’d like to sign up and snag an advance reader copy, be sure to check out the blogger/reviewer page here.

Here’s some info on the book and the link to the preorder. The book comes out 8/28/2018.

Shannon lies to almost everyone she meets. When she gets lost and winds up trapped in an Appalachian valley village, her lies don’t get her far.

Mistwalk Vale may look like a fairy-tale, but nightmares lurk in the shadows. Villagers are dying grisly deaths, their bodies reduced to bones and left in the streets for their friends and family to find. Worse, some people suspect that Shannon is involved. They accuse her of coming from the tribe of vicious earth witches down in the hollow.

A man named Owen believes Shannon is innocent. He tries to protect her as best he can, but there’s only so much he can do. She feels herself falling for him, despite her plan to leave as soon as she gets an opportunity.

Caught between angry mobs and an ancient darkness, she will be forced to fight for her survival. Can she save herself and the village before evil consumes them all?
