Hello friends. Just a quick post to let you know that Restoration is now available from these fine booksellers: Apple, Google Play, Kobo, Amazon & Audible. Yay!
I’m also working on Barnes&Noble and am hoping to have it available there very soon. I am also looking into expanded audiobook distribution with ListenUp.com, audiobooks.com, and downpour.com.
One of my goals for 2019 was to have my book available through all the major channels and I am very, very close!
I continue to work hard on Revival and am getting really close to having a finished first draft. More about that in my next post. For those that are eagerly awaiting book 2, stay tuned. I will give you a preview of the first few chapters very soon. Please realize that these are first draft chapters with little to no editing and are very much subject to change. But it should at least give you an idea of where I am going with the story. I hope you like it!
Good day friends. Just a quick note to let you know that the new cover for Restoration is done! The interior of the book has also been reworked to correct some of the errors that slipped through the first time around. And, last but not least, I tweaked the opening and other parts of the story to improve readability and increase immersion.
Now, without further ado, here’s the new cover!
Good day friends, I hope this finds you well. I apologize for not posting in several weeks, but I’ve been consumed with work on Revival, the second book in the Restoration series.
That said, I have a few announcements that I am dying to share with you!
- I am now working with a publisher, and we’ve been hard at work re-designing and repositioning Restoration. I had no idea how much was involved to create a best-seller (beyond writing a good story, that is) when I first started this venture!
- The series title is now “The Gaia Origin”. So Restoration will be “The Gaia Origin Book 1”, Revival will be “The Gaia Origin Book 2”, etc.
- We are redesigning the cover of Restoration to fit into the branding we’ve developed for the overall series. It will be a couple more weeks before I can share it with you, but here’s a sneak-peak of the Revival cover mockup as a teaser!
As always, thanks for reading!
I just found out that Evan has been looking for ways to help promote the book and he landed an interview with theprotagonistspeaks.com. Check it out when you have a minute. He talks quite a bit about his background, and things that have happened to him since fleeing our solar system. Most of it is stuff that didn’t appear in the book, but some of it may appear in one or both of the next two books. No hints, you’ll have to read the interview and the books when they come out.
Speaking of which, I am still hard at work on Revival and hope to have it out before Christmas this year. There will be other exciting things happening between now and then, but I’ll save those for future blog posts.
I’ve done another interview, this time with the helpful folks over at booksgosocial.com.
I try to answer different questions for every interview, so please check this one out even if you’ve read the others. You won’t be disappointed!
Good news friends and fans, DBG is featuring Restoration at the top of their blog. It is also first on their lists of sci-fi and action-adventure books!
