Scrivener will be featured twice this coming week as I shift from a Monday to a Friday schedule to accommodate all the book release events during the month of September. There will be an RRBC Spotlight Blog Tour on Wednesday as well as more authors featured in Fantasy Authors Unplugged.

The Bow of DestinyWriting News:

I’ve uploaded a preliminary manuscript version of The Bow of Destiny to Smashwords already. This weekend I expect to upload to Amazon and put that into pre-sale status so those who have been waiting to reserve a copy there should see it soon. Follow my Amazon page to receive updates on the book and shelve it on Goodreads to be reminded when it’s available. For those who missed it, here’s the link for the interview on Beyond the Cover. Also, the Brain to Books Blog Tour appearance is coming up on 8/31. I have another interview coming up in December so check the News page for more event announcements. See below for all the links to Trading Knives. The biggest news of all on the week is that the last beta-reader was extremely positive about The Bow of Destiny. There are a few tweaks to work on but I’m really enthused about the release and the events next month.

Please share your thoughts and ideas in the comments section. Sign up for my Archer’s Aim Digest mailing list to receive the forthcoming edition of my newsletter with announcements about upcoming releases and events (this months volume has already gone out). You’ll be the first to have news about my books, especially some free offers this summer related to the upcoming release of The Bow of Destiny, the first novel of The Bow of Hart Saga. Anyone who reserves a copy by 8/7 on Barnes & Noble, Kobo or iBooks (via the iTunes app) and emails me the screen-shot of the order will also receive a free coupon to download my e-book short story, The Black Bag containing a sample chapter of The Bow of Destiny. Additionally, August’s free e-book: Trading Knives is now available on Kobo, iBooks, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble & Amazon.
