I will be setting up at Old Timers day festival in Peebles, Ohio tomorrow. The festival officially kicks off late afternoon the same day. Be sure to stop by if you are in the area!
Meant to get this posted Saturday when they came in, but the new bookmarks are here!
If you find me at any of the festivals (including OTD this year) I will have these on hand to pass out!
As you can see it has the trilogy artwork and book titles on the front. On the back is my picture (from the back of the books, I really should get an updated picture for the next book release), a brief bio, list of published books and my website at the bottom.
I should have some bumper stickers to bundle with book sales, or sold separately for $1. They are still in the mail, but should be delivered by tomorrow. I will upload pictures of those once they arrive as well.
I am excited to get to meet anyone and everyone at the festival 😁
Until then, May God bless you, and please don’t feed the Jacobs
I hope everyone is staying dry, towards the end of this summer. I haven’t made a blog post in a couple of weeks, and I am sorry about that. My prayers go out to any and all affected by the current hurricane affecting the eastern US states.
This month is a bit crazy, so lets go ahead and hop into it.
In just one week I will be setup at our local street fair in Peebles Ohio, Old Timers Days. If your from around the area, or passing through stop in and say hello! OTD runs from sept 12 – 15th this year, and as always they rumor it could be the last one. I will be selling my books, signing books, handing out new bookmarks & informational flyers about my books, and having a raffle opportunity to get the trilogy and a limited run tee-shirt. The shirt in the raffle is sized Adult XL, so be aware of that. This raffle will be the only way to get this shirt and I will be shipping to anywhere in the United States for the winner. The drawling will take place Monday, the 16th, and I will be sending the shirt, books, and such through the mail. The sign up at the event will have an address line just for this reason.
Why am I giving a shirt away? Well I’m glad you asked!
I will be starting a newsletter that will run once a month. It will contain highlights from the website, plans for upcoming events, book updates, and sneak peeks of upcoming titles. It might sound similar to the monthly updates here on the website and it kinda is. The newsletter however will be more details, and will be the distribution of future excerpts from future novels.
Edit: Removed hoping it would reduce spam bots.
I will be adding a new page to the home screen that will let you sign up for the newsletter.
As crazy as all this is, that’s not all.
At the bottom of this post I am showing off the new “logo” for The Sage of Hytrae Trilogy. I will be using this new logo on related merchandise which currently is just the tee shirts, bookmarks, and some bumper stickers that will also be at the OTD booth. I will be posting Pictures of all those things on here as I receive them this month.
Wow its a crazy month, on the back half of September I should be back to posting weekly blogs and using the monthly update to share news, of course the new newsletter will be starting in October.
Anyway, here is the artwork as promised:
Until next time, and remember Don’t feed the Jacobs!
I finally uploaded the cover art 😀
You can take a look by clicking the link (it’s in pdf format so WordPress wont imbed it).
Don’t forget, the conclusion to The Sage of Hytrae Trilogy releases Next Week!
This is a super quick poll so please take this opportunity to vote for the cover art you like the best! I will be making the decision on Saturday/Sunday and I will take everyone’s feedback into consideration that I receive before then! Please vote in the poll below
I’ve been moved around on my work schedule, this has made it more difficult to stay on top of editing. The editing of The Candescent Vessel is still going and I still plan on getting it out on time, but I don’t have the artwork ready to show everyone this week. I can say that we are sticking to the same overall “Style” of the first book, but less blue and more Yellow… You’ll see what I mean.
Anyway, there are actually two prospective book covers I am creating. I hope to have a (brief) voting period over which one should go on the published copy. So stay tuned for that opportunity! 😀
Things are going good with the editing process. The book has been in the very helpful hands of my bug squashing team. Everything is on track for our Feb. Release date (2/16/16). I hope to have the artwork finished for The Candescent Vessel soon. I have been working and tweaking on the artwork for some time but now that the book is really going forward I need to get that caught up. Once it’s done you might notice some changes here and on Facebook, so keep an eye out for those updates. Thanks for reading!
