August Update and Announcements!

Hey everyone!

So good news, I will be setting up a booth at the local street fair in Peebles Ohio once again! The festival is called Old timers days, and takes place Sept. 12th through the 15th this year. This is only the second time for me to setup a booth at OTD and I will be available to both sign physical books, and will have a supply of paperbacks you can buy there as well.

I am hoping to have some related merchandise of some kind to sell/give out at the festival as well. More details on those once I have them more solidified. At the very least I will have a new set of bookmarks to give out to anyone who wants them (maybe this time without the typos the first set I gave out had haha).

Also quick update on the newest novel. As the book has begun to really take shape I’ve been wondering if I am ready to really move it forward much more. I probably shared information on the book too soon, luckily I was also somewhat vague. I have been running into major issues with flow, and structure for the novel and have realized that to tell this story well I’ll have to rewrite everything I have written so far… This is frustrating, and I do apologize sincerely about not getting this story out there this summer.

This delay will probably push that book out a ways too, because I have been making plans for next year’s 5 year anniversary of The Sage of Hytrae Book 1 (The Crystal Seal) being released. More news on that as well at a later date, but you can expect some new writing in that world as a mininum from me. What form the new stories will take is still being worked on, I wouldn’t expect a new Novel, nothing quite that extensive to announce haha.

I feel the weekly blog posts have been going well, so those aren’t going anywhere so no worries there, the next one should be wrapping up the basics of writing series sometime next week.

I would also like to thank everyone again who snagged my trilogy for free back during the first week in July this year. Please if you have had a chance to read them by now drop a review on amazon, it really helps (that goes double if you enjoyed the books haha).

I think that’s all I have to share today. I’ll keep everyone posted if I am able to cook up some extra Sage of Hytrae goodies, or really anything of the sort. With only a month left to really get things ordered I have to be moving quick, so stay tuned.

Until next time, and don’t feed the Jacobs!

Free Reads in July

Hey everyone!

I might not have a normal update this month, but I’ve got something better for everyone… Free books!

The entire Sage of Hytrae trilogy will be Free starting July 4th, and until July 8th. This marks the first time you can pick up the entire series for free since the series concluded late last year! This kind of deal won’t likely happen again so don’t miss out, links to each below.

The Crystal Seal: https://www.amazon.com/Crystal-Seal-Sage-Hytrae-Book-ebook/dp/B00VFKJ78A/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=the+sage+of+hytrae&qid=1562072159&s=gateway&sr=8-3

The Candescent Vessel: https://www.amazon.com/Candescent-Vessel-Sage-Hytrae-Book-ebook/dp/B01CDIBY2E/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=the+sage+of+hytrae&qid=1562072159&s=gateway&sr=8-2

The Sorcerer’s Gamble: https://www.amazon.com/Sorcerers-Gamble-Sage-Hytrae-Book-ebook/dp/B07KSQTZ2B/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+sage+of+hytrae&qid=1562072159&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Why would I give away literally every book I’ve written, so far, away for free you ask?

Well two reasons. First to hopefully gain some reviews. Without reviews on my books people don’t get them recommended to them, they don’t show up on anyone’s list of reads from amazon, and they don’t show up well on amazon search results. If I can get the books into a few thousand hands for free, my hope is at least 1% of them leave reviews. This helps me long term.

The second reason I am giving them away is to help promote summer reading. These books target a large age demographic. From late elementary to Jr high all the way up to your grandma, is an age you could enjoy these books. It is beneficial (especially in school) to read over the summer. It helps your grades at the beginning of the next school year plus keeps you entertained during down time through the summer.

A couple things people have told me in person about the book (which I wish had been left as reviews online haha):

“Easy to pick up, hard to put down” – Young adult

“I don’t normally read this sort of thing, but I honestly enjoyed it a lot” – somebody’s Grandma

So my hope is to get some copies out there one way or another. Don’t miss out to get the entire adventure for the best price out there… Free!

Please note, Only the kindle ebook’s are free during this time frame. It would be quite difficult to talk amazon into giving away paperbacks haha.

The Sorcerer’s Gamble Promo

We began our journey following a young man named Cyan in search of adventure. He learned adventure is not carefree but often brings troubles and heartache with it.

We then heard a tale from Lucy, a young woman who found herself while on a different path then she had desired. She learned that who we are is discovered, when you fight for what you believe in.

Now, the story continues…

A new journey is coming, and a single voice will not be enough to tell it. Join Lucy, Cyan, and more on an adventure that was foretold thousands of years ago. Will Hytrae plummet into an age of darkness? Three must stand at the end of the age. In this climatic conclusion to the trilogy, a choice must be made. The Sage of Hytrae will determine the fate of the world.
