I thought Travis was getting a bit obsessive with the webpage redesign, but...I'm glad he did.

Clearly I'm not paying him enough.

(Of course if the book makes no money I won't be able to pay him anything, but there you go.)

Crashing the Castle Walls

Great article from Vodkapudit on the opportunities for new writers in e-publishing.

Basically, the world will always have a need for story-tellers, but a great many story-tellers, good story-tellers, will never get the chance to publish because they don't make the criteria of a few "gate-keepers" in the publishing industry.

e-publishing changes all of that.

Read the whole thing but the bottom line is this:

So to every aspiring writer out there, I say: The castle walls are crumbling — now is your time to rush in.

I'm trying brother. I'm trying.

October people. The book arrives in October and then it'll be up to you.

I know we can make it happen.

New Title Graphics

Travis has been working like a dog on the illustrations and the book cover.

(With only one month 'til the book goes public, he's been rather surly frankly. Who can blame him?)

Still, he's turning out some fantastic stuff.

We both agreed that the current title graphic is a bit too "splatter-gore" horror, and I wanted a more "gothic-fantasy" horror vibe that played on some of the Egyptian mythology explored in the book.

Well, he delivered, and boy how.

Here's a first peek. New Title Graphic

I love it.

Take a look and tell us what you think.

This one will replace the old graphic on the book cover and in all the promotional videos.

Trav assures me this title graphic will be up on the webpage by tomorrow at the latest.

Here's hoping!

Web Page still in Beta Form

Hi all, Travis here. As you can no doubt tell the web page is still changing. Jonah and I are still not happy with the look or the general ease of reading on the website. We want the whole thing to be perfect come the launch date, so we are still in beta form here for now.

That means that old posts will come and go as we try to torture this thing into shape.

No worries though, it will all be (hopefully!) up and running come launch time in October.

Until then, stay close as we will be posting new videos, and excerpts here.

Thanks again.

Technical difficulties

Hey all, Travis here, for some reason the website has gone all wonky. Things will be down for a while but don't worry, we'll get them back up soon.

Teaser Trailer for the Book!

Hey all, Travis Lee here (I pretty much run the web site) but here it is, the first trailer for the book.

Let me know what you think and sound off in the comments!

And yes, that's my voice and not Jonah's. When we make our first thousand we'll hire someone else to do the voiceover.

The Importance of Friends

The illustrator of the book, and my good friend, Travis Lee Clark, has really gone the extra mile.

He put together a trailer for the book with some of the new preliminary artwork.

It will go up sometime tonight! And it will be posted on YouTube.

Travis is taking over nearly all the marketing duties for the book and has told me he is going to...and I quote..."Pimp this thing to the stars. TO. THE. STARS!!"

The novel is finished, believe it or not.

Sample chapters will start going up at the end of this month and the book will be available in Oct on Kindle!

Huzzah and much rejoicing.

Travis Lee Clark, a friend of mine from our days together in Pennsylvania has agreed to do the book cover and illustrations.

We will post them here soon as they come online.
