At 231 pages, Shards of S'Darin is really taking shape. The first book in the series, A Dream of Storms was only 286 pages in total, so this one is getting close to the same length. With the new book, I am not even close to concluding it, so it will be much longer. I don't want to give away anything, but those that have read the Work in Progress have loved it so far.
I am still working on the horror novel with David Woods. The storyline is cool, we are just figuring out how exactly we want to share in the writing chores. The intro so far is very creepy and disturbing, everything horror should be. I enjoy writing this story because I can write in a current and more modern style and I can curse like a sailor. That wouldn't be appropriate in the land of Kirkaldin, would it?
I want to thank all of the readers out there that have given my first book a try. I know a lot of you only read the book because I offered it free on a few sites, but I don't have a problem with that. I got some really good reviews and appreciate all of them. Now, A Dream of Storms is no longer free on Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Itunes, etc. I have changed the price to 99 cents, which I still think is a steal for a good fantasy story. All of these sites offer the reader the opportunity to read a sample of the book. If you haven't yet done so, please check out the sample. It may be something you would be interested in. Honestly, the thing that aggravates me is that when my book was free on Smashwords, I would get 3 or 4 downloads a day. Now that it's free, I haven't had a single person buy it for 99 cents.
Tomorrow, my family will celebrate Christmas. Yes, it's a day early, but that's the way it has to be. We're cooking a turkey and yes, I helped. I am definitely not the cook in the family. So, everyone reading this have a great holiday and feel free to drop me a message or leave a comment.
Walk with the Wind, brothers and sisters.
