Shadow Rifters

I'm still trying to catch up to all my blog reading. Being gone for two weeks is like five months in the blogosphere. I promise I'll get there!

So last week, without much fanfare, I did announce on here that I was able to have my second book, Shadow Warrior, published.

I loved writing this book, as I had way more literary tools at my disposal when writing it. Scrivener was a lifesaver, and it cut the amount of time it took me to write a 100K novel. Drastically. So I feel like I was able to be much more focused on writing this book. It didn't need as much demolition.

So it's out there. I'm hoping to send out an email to everyone's who has helped me in the past. I'd like some help getting the word out there. Just like I said last week, that's about as much marketing as I can do in the short term. If any one else wouldn't mind posting up a link or two or whatever you're willing to share about my work, please reach out to me. Thanks!

Once again, Shadow warrior is out on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords.
Dragonfly Warrior will be 99 cents indefinitely on Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

TODAY is also the official launch day for M. Pax's The Rifters. I just got my copy yesterday, and I'm looking forward to reading it. It's got everything I love - some steampunk, some mystery, some paranormal/supernatural stuff going on. It's going to be awesome!

Rifters Blurb:

The Gold Rush trickles to a fool’s quest and a string of stagecoach heists. In 1888, Earl Blacke decides to make a new start and become a better man. He escapes into the mountains, heading north. In the wilds of Oregon, a rift inside an ancient volcano opens and sends him into the future, into the present day. It also shaves forty years off his age, forty years to live over again and atone for what he’s done.

Starting over is hard to do. In current day New York, Daelin Long’s dream job at a publishing house
goes the way of the dinosaurs her sister chases. With no money and nowhere else to go, Daelin accepts the librarian position in her sister’s dinky town in the middle of Oregon. Nestled inside ancient volcanic peaks, the town of Settler holds onto many secrets. Residents roam the streets with weirdly fashioned devices, and odd lights pulse in the night skies. People whisper of a phantom outlaw and start dying, murdered and missing their heads. On top of it all, Daelin’s sister is missing, and Daelin doesn’t know who to trust.

Earl knows more than he’s saying. He shares a notorious history with the phantom, one he’ll see remains buried. Keeping Daelin’s sister’s secrets is his only chance at redemption, and the only way to keep this world safe.

The Rifters is available at an introductory price. The second book in the series, The Initiate, will be available October 20, 2014. It’s up for preorder for a special price at iTunes, Amazon, and B&N. Check HERE for links. Giveaways and events are ongoing through October 31, 2014. Check HERE for details.

Congratulations to both you and M. Pax!

Double congratulations are in order, one for you and one for Mary.

I understand so many writers are really into Scrivener. I have yet to look into it.

I'm way behind on everything but moving had a lot to do with it. Wish I could finish my sequel.
