Anytime you don't hear from me in a few weeks, it's a safe bet that I'm writing. That's really the only thing I go into seclusion to do. If I'm on vacation, I'm usually still online, because a vacation without Internet is no vacation at all.
So thanks to all this writing, I can now safely announce that Of Darkness and Dawn will be released on August 11th...which just so happens to be my birthday.
What present could I get that's better than a book release? A pony, but that's beside the point.
Therefore, as I discussed a few months ago, Of Dawn and Darkness will be released in September. I'd give a more specific date, but I want to leave you in agonizing suspense.
I've said this before, but there's one main reason why I'm not releasing this pair together: because of the way Amazon releases work. It felt like the last dual release competed with one another, which is counterproductive to both of them, so I'm trying to release the books a few weeks apart.
Hopefully that will solve the problem, but whether it does or not, I've learned something! Hooray for experimentation!
So in anticipation of all this, here's the cover for the upcoming Of Darkness and Dawn!
About a week ago, I posted the first half of this scene, which is located in my previous post. I had to split it up because otherwise it looked freakishly long for a blog, and I left the first half posted for a while so everyone would see it. Here's the second half, featuring Ach'magut, the Overseer.
First off, you may have noticed some changes around here--the site is currently undergoing some growing pains, so it may radically shift and transform over the next few weeks. Try not to be alarmed.
With that out of the way, I'd like to stretch your memories back to the distant past...back, back to the haze of last month. When I promised that I would release all five of the possible rewards for 100 combined Amazon reviews on the Elder Empire books.
Well, now I'm going to continue making good on that promise, with an excerpt from Of Darkness and Dawn, featuring the Emperor...before he was the Emperor.
This is the first half, and the second half will be posted...soon? I'm not sure when the next post will be, because I'm hard in the trenches pounding out word count on ODAD, but certainly soon!
And now, without further ado, hit the jump for the origins of the Emperor!
"Bracing her foot on the body, Mercy pulled her arrow free."
A generous helping.
