VERY GOOD NEWS!! And a Moment of my Gratitude.

VERY GOOD NEWS!! And a Moment of my Gratitude.

First off, to those readers who took a second to write a review for my new American Rebirth Trilogy Box Setthank you from the bottom of my heart. It is because of you, that this awesome news has happened:

I GOT A NEW BOOKBUB DEAL!!!!

I submitted the very Box Set Trilogy in question for a bookbub featured deal, figured it was worth a shot. I got my first bookbub deal last year for HOOD and it was incredible. I sold thousands of books in a day.

That’s how badass a Bookbub deal is.

AND I GOT ANOTHER ONE!

Thanks to those people who wrote the reviews. If I didn’t have reviews, I don’t get no deal. So thank you kindly.

The featured deal for the boxset will be on Nov. 29th-Dec 2nd. It’ll be on sale during that time.

It’s pretty baller. I’m psyched to get the box set rolling, it’s something I’m really proud of. Looking at all three books together just kinda made something click and I felt pretty happy while I was formatting it for release.

I’m trying not to flip out, but it’s pretty freaking awesome.

See you soon, wastelanders.

A Humble Request to the Readers…

A Humble Request to the Readers…

Hope everyone’s enjoying pumpkin-flavored-everything season. I am, for real though. Haven’t had any pumpkin pie yet though. That’s the good stuff.

Anyhow,

As you may know, I released an eBook Boxset of the American Rebirth series, including Hood, Legends, and American Rebirth.

I wanted to reach out to my readers and make a humble request: for all those who read my books, if I could ask you to leave a review of my writing on the boxset, you’d be doing me a huge service. It doesn’t have to be long, or a work of art. Just write you how feel.

Whether you loved a book, hated it, or just meh, I don’t care, leave an honest review. Reviews are worth their weight in gold for authors.

The boxset is a very good marketing tool for me, as I can promote all three books at once using it. I will try to get a Bookbub featured deal with it. I’ve gotten one with Hood before and it was tremendous. For those who don’t know it’s the premiere marketing tool for authors. Basically, it helps you sell lots and lots of books when you list it on sale.

Anyway, that’s all. For those who want to know, I’m hard at work at the next novel. I’m really happy with how it’s coming out. I’ll post more updates about it soon.

Have a good Halloween my people.

A Promise is A Promise…Book 3 is Done

A Promise is A Promise…Book 3 is Done

A promise is a promise. I said I’d get the book done by the end of this week. And even if I came screeching up to the deadline…

American Rebirth, Book 3 of the American Rebirth series is finally finished.

americanrebirth_1

It’s hard to believe this day has come…

I’m submitting it to Amazon tonight. It might take a few days, but soon it will be live for sale. I’ll push it out to all the other distributors in the next few days.

I feel kind of numb, floaty, like nothing really make sense yet. It hasn’t hit me, and it probably won’t for awhile.

Like all writers, I am currently in that manic state of excitement to get it out, and fear that it somehow isn’t ready or isn’t good enough. But I must kick that feeling in the face, and trust the work I and others have done to help make this book what it is.

And it is time.

For all you readers who waited patiently, thank you. I really can’t wait for you all to read it.

And if you really want to make me happy, leave a review when you’re done. Whatever you think of it. Even if it’s just a bunch of stabby emojis.

Now I [try and] rest.

Final Book 3 Update!

Final Book 3 Update!

So as you all may know, I finished the draft of American Rebirth, edited it once, and gave it to my Beta readers. So here’s the news:

The Bad: I just got back the book from my Beta readers, and I do need to make some changes. A bit more than I expected, maybe.

The Good: All things considered, it’s mostly tweaks and alterations, only one chapter needs to be overhauled, as far as I can tell.

The VERY Good: I have this week and next week off for Easter break. So I’m going to ballistic editing this thing. I have no doubt I can have it finished by then. I’m goin’ into grindmode, muddertruckers. Furthermore, I am really, really excited about the changes I’m making. I am very happy overall with the quality of the draft and how much my Betas enjoyed it, and I think after these edits it’s gonna be BALLIN OUTTA CONTROL.

Or at least, that’s the plan.

TL;DR The book is nearly done, I should have it completed by the end of the first week in April.

Next time you hear from me, the book should be out.

GET HYPED!!!

It’s Done…

It’s Done…

As of last night, around midnight…

…The draft of American Rebirth is done.

It’s about 90,200 words. That’s sure to change after editing.

I don’t know if all the feels have hit me yet. I don’t think the full high will come until this shit is done and launched. But still, for me… I just gotta take a minute and say something.

I’m truly proud of this series.

It hasn’t always been easy. It’s been mostly NOT easy, to be honest. But seeing the ending of this book, and well this arc of the series (I have a feeling i’ll be writing more stories in the American Rebirth universe.) it’s a hard feeling to put into words.

All three of these books are strongly connected, all a part of one complete narrative about who we are as individuals, as a race, and what the fuck it is to make of this thing we call existence. I’ve always loved post-apoc because it lays that bare. There’s nothing but survival and the things that really matter.

All the garbage priorities we lay on top of our lives living in a functioning civilization gets stripped away. The people at the end of the world, or at least, the people who face the collapse of great civilizations, like those in the dark ages, have to face the reality of what actually matters:

Who are we to ourselves? who are we to each other? Both as strangers, as loved ones, and as enemies?

I wanted to do a lot of things with this series, but ultimately, that’s the biggest picture. I can say having finished book 3, I feel I’ve answered that. In my way.

I really can’t wait for you all to read it.

What’s next: I have to edit it. I’ll give it to a few close beta readers I trust. Then I do one more pass, and then it’s live.

We’re almost there.
