Still waiting to get the critique back from the editor, but here’s a little treat for you in the meantime. 😉
(Remember, this is an *unedited* version of Chapter 1, and may not reflect the final work.)

But enough George R. R. Martin jokes for now.
It’s finally done, folks!
Of course, I managed to pick up a nice bug last Friday night, which slowed progress a bit, but I just finished writing the last word for Episode Four!
Well, not really the last word – as I’m sure my editor and you Beta Readers will have plenty of good suggestions.
And, speaking of the Beta Readers, expect to receive it in your inbox tomorrow, friends. I just want to do one last quick readthrough of it to remove any obvious typos and such, then I’ll convert it to Epub, and email it off to you.
But I’m not complaining… oh wait.. wrong song lyrics…
Either way, a Happy New Year to all of you!
Sorry for the lack of updates over the past two weeks, but I’ve been sequestered in my dungeon cell in an attempt to get Episode Four completed for you. I literally have about five pages left, and expect it to be done tomorrow.
At that point, I’ll give it a very quick once-over then send it off to the Beta Readers and my editor.
While they’re reading my bad grammar, I’ll be getting a cover organized. So, expect some potential cover art in the interim.
Keep warm, everyone!
Hope Santa was nice to all you folks this year. Can’t complain myself. I’ll upload some pics of my goodies tomorrow hopefully.
I’ll be posting a belated present to everyone tomorrow as well too – an excerpt from the upcoming Episode Four.
Also, congratulations to the contest winners! Hope [Redacted] enjoys their new Kobo. 🙂
I’m about bushed right now, so off to bed with me. Safe holidays to all of you!
I’ve secured a spot in a small email advertisement for Dec 18, which will be promoting Episode One.
I’ve also mentioned a few weeks back that, upon re-reading Episode One, that I wasn’t 100% happy with it. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t feel polished.
To that end, I’ve retouched it a bit, and have just re-uploaded it to Amazon, B&N, etc…
The only thing now is for us to see how well everything goes on Thursday. Wish me luck.
Now, back to Episode Four for me.
Also, if you haven’t already, I’d really appreciate it if you were to leave a review of my books at the retailer from which you purchased it. Thanks in advance!
On Dec 20, ten of you lucky readers will be selected to receive free ebook copies of Oncoming Storm (Artifice: Episode Three), and (when it’s published) Breached Gates (Artifice: Episode Four)!
How do you enter?
Simple! Sign up for my mailing list. That’s all there is to it! No lengthy entry forms or anything like that! I’ll randomly choose a selection of names right from the mailing list.
Still with me?
Because there’s more!
A very lucky reader will be selected to receive one of these Kobo ereaders! That’s right – whoever wins will get a Kobo Touch shipped to them, hopefully in time for Christmas!
Good luck, everyone!
Sorry, folks, but this is the post I was hoping I wouldn’t have to make.
(Just to clarify – I’m not deceased and this isn’t an auto-post-in-case-I’m-dead sort of thing. The books will keep flowing.)
However, like the subject said, I’ve had to make a tough decision.
To put it succinctly, I’ve decided to delay Artifice: Episode Four until the beginning of January.
I’m well and truly sorry about this, everyone. I really am.
The rationale behind this is as follows: Continue reading
