Review of HOOD by Evan Pickering

HOOD review by Puja Guha. Thanks for the review!

My Blog

I don’t usually read a lot of dystopian thrillers, but I heard about it from a friend and picked it up. I really enjoyed the book – the characters are interesting and well developed, and as the reader, you can really feel their plight. I especially liked the moral gray area that the author explores. What would you be willing to do to save your family? 

Although the setting of the book is incredibly dark and scary,  the author does a good job of lightening up the plot with occasional bits of humor. Overall it was a great read and I’m looking forward to the sequel!

HOOD by Evan Pickering is available on Amazon at http://smarturl.it/Hood.

Free Audiobook for review trade!

Free Audiobook for review trade!

Alright people, so here’s the deal:

I’ve got these promotional codes for a free copy of the HOOD Audiobook–Amazon/ACX gives them to producers of new books in order to generate buzz/reviews for your book.

And so, with that in mind, I’ve decided to do a giveaway!

I’m going to give away 5 codes to five random people that comment on this post in exchange for an honest review of the audiobook on Audible! Just write your name and make it known you want in in the comments section, and you’ll be eligible🙂 I’ll make a seperate post announcing the winners when it’s done! Also, if you want to include your email for me to contact you directly, that’s fine too.

I’m literally going to use a random number generator to decide who wins.

But wait, there’s more. If selected, I’m going to put you on my audiobook review list. Every time I publish an audiobook, you’ll get a free copy of it in exchange for a review!

However, if I give you an audiobook and you don’t review it within two months, I’ll have to take you off the list (if something is slowing down your reading in your life, this isn’t a hard and fast rule but ya gotta let me know!)

So it’s real simple. If you’re selected, I give you a free audiobook in exchange for the listen and honest review. Do so, and you’ll get the audiobook for my next book for free next time around🙂 It keeps on rolling!

For the winners, if y’all could give an amazon review and an audible audiobook review… that’d be amazing!

Good luck y’all,

Evan

Podcast Interview on Spectrum Books!

Podcast Interview on Spectrum Books!

Hello my dears,

So I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Nadine Matheson of the Spectrum Books Podcast! It was a tremendously fun interview with some pretty entertaining interview questions, ranging from intricacies of the self-pub world and to the more lighthearted, like “what book is most overrated” and “what’s the best book-to-movie adaptation, what’s the worst,” as well as “what book did you wish you wrote?”

I quite enjoyed myself. Nadine is pretty cool lady.

Audiobook Has Arrived!

Audiobook Has Arrived!

I’m proud to say the Audiobook for HOOD is finally live! It’s available on Amazon, Itunes, and Audible. I’m psyched to finally see it up for sale! Booya!! MORE MEDIUMS!

AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

AVAILABLE ON AUDIBLE

…It might not yet be up on iTunes…cough… maybe I’m just a spazz and can’t find it.

So: something awesome. For all those who want to make ACX give me free money, if you buy the HOOD audiobook as your first purchase on Audible, then I get a free $50 bounty for bringing someone into audible!

Granted, you don’t have to do that, proceed however you like, I’m just happy to have the thing up for sale, but if you feel interested in audible or just want to make audible give me free money, do that and I will be a happy meatsack.

One way or the other, I really love how this audiobook turned out, and I’m excited to see it getting into the hands (headphones?) of listeners. For all those peeps who wanted it audio, thank you for waiting patiently! The day has finally arrived!

Whew.

*BEEP* Audiobook Launch Detected.

*BEEP* Audiobook Launch Detected.

Can you hear it?

It’s the glorious sound of HOOD as an Audiobook featuring narrator Michael Jameson. The entire book has been recorded and revised, and is in the final stages of publication. Once final production stuffs are done and it gets approved by Amazon/ACX, it should be up for sale. I don’t know exactly how long that will take but it shouldn’t be more than a few days!

I love the way it has come out. Mike did a fantastic job, he really captured the spirit of what I wanted with the book and I can’t wait to get some reviews and hear what people think of it. With all the internal dialogue and wide range of characters/voices it wasn’t a simple book to narrate, and it came out better than I could have expected.

Not going to lie, it was pretty fun. Stressful at times, because your letting someone put your baby into the spoken word, but all in all it was an awesome experience, and I’d recommend Mike to just about anyone.

Soooo… I’ll make a post when it is live, but hear ye gentle folk, the narrated tale is nearly upon us!

BOOK 2 UPDATE: I’ve gotten back large-scale revisions from my editor, I’m going to do some changes to the draft–but it looks like there won’t be any HUGE changes necessary, so hopefully it won’t take too long to get this baby pubbed! Man, I want to see it done today. I keep reminding myself I’m in the home stretch and it won’t be long now.

Once you start publishing, you just can’t stop. MOAR BOOKS!

Small Magic

Some legit thoughts on nerddom here. This blog is awesome

Problem Machine

Magic sucks. We’ve fucked it up. We’ve made it boring. We’ve taken something that, conceptually, contains the range of all things unexplainable, extraordinary, and mystical, and compressed it into essentially an invisible sack of hand grenades.

This isn’t just a problem with video games. It might have started with Dungeons & Dragons: D&D was originally created by combining the strategic play of war games with the high fantasy setting of The Lord of the Rings, and this origin still shapes what games are today, as well as what magic is within those games. However, while wizards and magic were an important part of the stories of Middle-Earth, these elements didn’t readily map to war game mechanics. Reading the books, it’s sometimes difficult to tell what’s magic and what’s just everyday cleverness, what’s mystical knowledge and what’s just regular everyday knowledge. Most of the time, Gandalf is a badass, largely not…
