Indiegogo and A Wizard’s Gambit Paperback!

I have two announcements for this post.

Cover sketch by Harvey Bunda

The first is that my Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for my last book in the Empire’s Foundation trilogy has launched! For the next 30 days, I’ll be trying to raise enough money to get the book edited, and there’s a stretch goal to pay for the cover art.

There’s some great perks, and if this is your first time hearing about the series, you can get the whole thing at a pretty decent discount for the e-books.

Secondly…

A Wizard’s Gambit is now available in paperback from CreateSpace! (And if you want A Noble’s Quest, you can pick that up too!)

Pre-order A Wizard’s Gambit

Pre-orders for my latest epic fantasy installment, A Wizard’s Gambit, are now available for only $5! That’s only $1 more than my first book, and almost twice the content! Its official release date is April 5th, although my Indiegogo supporters can find their copy in their e-mail inboxes now!

Here’s the blurb:
Thomas, Sarentha, and Eliza will learn that peace never lasts. After fighting for their freedom, wicked forces beyond the Tamorran Empire’s borders rise against them. Tamor’s king falters when threats of genocide and an undead plague arise. The would-be heroes must fill new roles of responsibility and power to hold Tamor together.
When more menaces emerge, each darker than the last, their adventure spans the entire continent. Thomas, Sarentha, and Eliza must make difficult choices and face their darkest fears to uncover their lost history by reviving long-dead wizards. Only by illuminating the past will they be able to step into the future.
One misstep could lead to their undoing.

2nd Edition A Noble’s Quest

CombinedDesktopMed

One night of editing, two books updated!

I have received the last round of editing back for my second book, A Wizard’s Gambit, and have gone through the prologue. Now that it’s finalized, I updated it in my published copies of A Noble’s Quest, where it appears at the end of the book as a teaser.

For those who have already purchased a paper back copy of A Noble’s Quest, this means you have a “First edition” print. I still have some more in a box for those who would like one. But any copies purchased through stores will be updated. The paper back will also be full justification now, instead of left, so it won’t have the ragged edges anymore. And I found a few instances where Thurzin was speaking and the apostrophe was turned the wrong way for words like ’em, ‘er, ‘is, etc.

Videos

I’ve added a new section for all the videos I’ve made, or others have made for me. I’m pretty excited to have enough of them that I can justify a webpage for them. I’ll be adding more in the near future!

I also want to add a Media tab with animated gifs and images that people can download if they’re interested.

Trying something new

Welcome to my new wordpress site.

I’m not sure I’ll stick with it, yet, but I wanted to check out the toolbox and see how easy it is to use, and see what the website looks like. So far, so good. I’ve got links at the top with an About section and a Titles page, where you can find links to all my writing.

I think I’ll probably keep my regular blog over at blogspot, but I thought it would be nice to get something more akin to a real website set up. Heck, I might even splurge on the $18/year to get the domain name ryantoxopeus.com. $1.50/month isn’t too steep.
