So, after over a year of blood, sweat, and tears, The Forgotten King's finally released for Kindle.
Okay, so I'm being a little overdramatic. There was no blood, sweat, or tears. Well, there was almost tears twice: once when writing a certain part, and once when editing it. Oh, and I guess there was some sweat when I thought up a lot of the story when jogging . . .
But I digress.
The Forgotten King grew much bigger than I'd anticipated, which is part of the reason it took me a little longer to get it out. I am incredibly proud of it though, and hope that any of you who read it have a great time experiencing Korin's next adventure. There's tons of people I'd like to thank for helping to make this possible, but I'm too tired right now to even try to list them without forgetting someone. You likely know who you are. A general thank you to everyone who read The Dragon Gem, however. You've made this journey more than worth it. I can't begin to express my gratitude for your support.
Alrighty, so my next step is getting the book on Smashwords this weekend, and in print through CreateSpace within the next couple of weeks. Now, you may notice that there won't be much marketing done for this book, and I am keeping it that way deliberately for now. As you may have read on here, my next project is a massive revision of The Dragon Gem. I'm not changing anything story wise, but I'm going to bring it to a much higher level of quality so it can stand proudly next to The Forgotten King. Also, I have some awesome new cover art for it(which has been posted on here not too long ago). I plan on having The Dragon Gem 2nd ed. out by the end of the summer. And then, with the definitive versions of both books completed, I will tout the heck out of The Forgotten King. Think of its release today as an advance release for previous readers of The Dragon Gem.
And then, I'll be getting out a little book of short stories, and will start the final volume of Korin's Journal towards the end of the year. I've got some big plans for it. At some point towards the end of the year, a couple other projects may pop up on my nifty progress bars on the right side of the screen here.
Again, thank you to everyone involved in making The Forgotten King a reality. If you're reading this, you're probably one of them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart(you probably deserve better than that cliche . . . I'm sorry).
So check out The Forgotten King! 213K + words for the low price of $4.99! That's like . . . an incredibly small decimal amount per word that my caculator won't compute for me.
You can pick it up on Amazon!
Plus, a certain someone has big plans for his share of the profits . . .
