That’s right, you read the title right: I have a release date set for The Sword of Dragons! I’ve had this date in mind ever since I decided to self-publish, but I didn’t want to announce it until I was sure I could make this date:
May 12th, 2015!
I can’t believe it is almost here, just over one month away! …Okay now that I think about that, I’m excited and terrified!
This will be my first book release. This is such a completely new and amazing experience! I know I’m supposed to have a release party, and my plan is to get in touch with a local book store this weekend to see if I can have my release party at one of their shops.
Beyond that…well, I think I’m ready. No, I know I am ready. I mean I still have some questions about how to get the release timed on Nook and Kindle, but minor technicalities aside, I am ready.
Like, beyond ready. This feels like the right time. I’ve been a writer for over 20 years, and I feel like all of that has been preparation for this year. For this release.
And what’s great about it is that this novel has a history almost as long as my writing career. No joke! I don’t recall if I talked about that here before, but I would like to leave that story for a future article. That story really does deserve it’s own article.
So what’s next? Getting the word out. And that starts with the official The Sword of Dragons website. I got chills writing that just now, heheh. An official website for a soon-to-be published novel. Oh yeah, that freaking rocks!!
Oh and for those of you who have stuck with me so far, as of today, you get a sneak-peak at the cover of The Sword of Dragons!
That is just a taste of the full cover! And if you click on that image, it’ll take you to the teaser page I setup on the website :)
Is that all the website will be? Heck no! I have soooo many plans for it! You see, this isn’t just going to be a launch site for the novel. The Sword of Dragons is book 1 in a series, and the new website will become your gateway to that universe beyond the novels! Character bios, history, side-notes, and as soon as humanly possible, a map of Halarite, the world that is central to The Sword of Dragons!
This, my friends, is just the beginning. And I am so glad you are all here to see it from the start with me :)
Thanks for reading!
