MMMM – Christmas 2016

Well, the end of the year is upon us. It’s been a great year, with some more excitement just around the bend. I just wanted to thank you all for your support. With your help we accomplished some fantastic things:

– We reached the top 10 in our categories on Amazon.

– We also reached top 100 in the Amazon Free Store (albeit briefly).

– A Coronation of Kings reached 60 reviews (and there was much rejoicing).

So thank you. I’m grateful for all of your support. I look forward to an exciting 2017.

I’m happy to announce I’ve finished my second draft of When The God’s War and it’s off to the editor. It will launch in January of 2017, just a few short weeks away. It’s every bit as action packed as A Coronation of Kings but it has a much more diverse cast, all fighting for their survival in an increasingly uncertain world.

I hope you’ll be delighted with the central character Yaneera. She is headstrong, innovative and struggling to save her people. Many of your favorites from A Coronation of Kings will return and you will learn a great deal more about the back story of this world and its accompanying universe.

I’ll share a few sneak peeks over the next month or so, so stay tuned for those.

In other exciting news I went to my first Supanova last month (it’s like Comic-con or other similar pop culture expos). I’d never been before so I was pretty excited. I went dressed in my Tyrion Nelvar armour, (the central character in my Rise of the Mercenary King novella) it was great. The photo below is one of my friends and I, along with another local author Kynan. It was a lot of fun. If you’ve never been before you ought to try it. It definitely won’t be my last.

I also got a signed copy of Matthew Reilly’s latest book Four Legendary Kingdoms which was awesome (both the book itself and MR, he’s a champ and an author that has had a big influence on me). It encouraged me to look into making hard copies available for my books, which is something I plan to explore next year so stay tuned!

If you are looking for a few cozy reads over the holidays, there are a bundle of great reads in these promotions I am a part of this month. You can get the books on any device via Instafreebie. I’ve put the links below for you. I hope you find something that piques your interest.

Prolific Reader Giveaways

We were also featured on Blushing Geek this month which was pretty exciting. Feel free to check out Vanessa’s site and show her some love for her time and support.

I hope you all have a safe and Happy Christmas, I look forward to sharing a very exciting 2017 with you very soon.

All the best.

Sam
