|Official release: April 5th!|
I've finished my final reading of A Wizard's Gambit!
+Harvey Bunda was under the weather last weekend, so he'll be getting the paper back cover to me soon. I went through +Andy Goldman's notes and e-books are out to Indiegogo supporters.
Thanks for your patience, especially to my Indiegogo supporters. I know I thought the book was going to be out in 2013/2014, but that was before I realized how much editing work was required. Now that I know the difference between developmental and line editing, I can better plan for future releases.
With the book out, I'll be re-reading my novella Demon Invasion and sending it out for line editing. Then it's back to work on writing the final book in the Empire's Foundation trilogy, A Hero's Birth. This week I finished an in-depth outline for the book, so that should help speed up the writing process. At first I though I would follow the antagonist all the way through the book, but it's going to bloat the story too much. I'll follow him at key points, but I'm going to have another character describe interactions with the antagonist while the protagonists were busy elsewhere. In this way I can give the information, and let the reader wonder what he's up to.
While I'm writing A Hero's Birth, I'll also be starting up my final Indiegogo campaign, where I'll be posting one ad per day over a 30 day time period. The idea is that they will be unique and interesting, so as not to irritate people. I hate annoying ads that say no more than "Buy my book!" So I want to keep it fresh, both for myself and for anyone who is (un)lucky enough to see every single ad.
If you'd like to pre-order your copy of A Wizard's Gambit, you can find it here at Amazon and Smashwords! I'm so grateful for all the shares across Google+ and Facebook with news of the book's impending release. You guys are awesome. :)
I always have trouble classifying my writing, but I think +R.J. Blain did it nicely in her post:
