THANK YOU EVERYONE!
First off, an enormous thank you to everyone who came out to Phoenix Comicon to see the booth, and thanks especially to those who bought a book, poster, and/or T-shirt in support of the novel! It was amazing to meet you all and I look forward to meeting you guys next year when I bring Archon to the event! We sold over 100 books, which means over 100 new residents of Glacier City. Truly, it was more wonderful than words can say and I am very grateful. Paragon was one of the best-selling novels at comicon, in comparison to some of the other authors at the event, and it’s all thanks to you guys!
So now that Con is over and I’m not running around doing prep work, I can get back to what I love the most: writing. This week is going to be a busy week for me, mostly with work stuff but also with story stuff. I’m getting back to working on Archon, and I’m also going to be adding content to the website on a weekly basis available only for subscribers. Every Tuesday (Weekly Reset for you gamers out there) I’m going to be posting a short story about some of the side-characters found in Paragon. I’ll be announcing the first character we’re going to take a closer look at THIS Friday.
The purpose for this is
1) to give you guys some more content to read,
2) there are some stories that didn’t make it into the novel for the sake of length and trying to keep the story moving forward.
For instance, origins. I didn’t get to add in origin stories for the Scarlet Scarab, Kira, or Phalanx as well as some of the others. This is something I’d really like to do so that my readers can get to know the characters of Paragon better. So stay tuned and lookout for Friday’s announcement, which will be available to the public, for who we’re looking at first. Again, the announcement will be public, but the short-story itself will only be available for subscribers.
Contact, Reviews, and Overall Updates
I’m always available and eager to talk to people. I am very responsive on Facebook and emails and I am very excited to hear what everyone thinks. If you’ve read the novel, please consider leaving a review on the Amazon page, dropping a like on Facebook, and subscribing to the website. Seriously, every word helps.
I don’t have a Twitter account at the moment, and I don’t foresee getting one anytime soon. Maybe when the book is more popular, but right now I’m just too busy with everything else to regularly Tweet. The best place to reach me is through my email or through Facebook. So if you have any questions, or just want to chat about the book or the stories that are coming, please feel free to message me.
So let’s talk about Archon. I know I left you guys with a lot of questions at the end of Paragon, and I know that cliffhanger was pretty wicked. No I’m not going to be giving anything away, there will be no spoilers here! What I can say is that I am working very hard to make sure Archon is just as satisfying as its predecessor, with plenty of pulse-pounding action, twists, and an epic story. I will also say that I am planning on there being, at the very least, three books in this series. I may expand it further depending on how the second book goes, or I may wrap it up at book 3 and move on to a new story (Lord knows I’ve got plenty up there!) but we shall see.
That’s it for now, guys. Please subscribe and post a review on Amazon, it would really help out a lot! See you on Friday! 😉
