Hi everyone! PH with you today with a special announcement. Archer’s Aim is expanding in a special way. There is now a merchandise store available. I’ve been using the store link for the last week, but today is the official announcement that the store is live. I’m still adding items to the catalog but when I’m finished, a wide selection will be displayed.
I think it’s a fun addition for Archer’s Aim and all the items will feature cover art from all the books currently published. In the future, when new books are published, matching merchandise will also be available.
Here’s a sample of what you can find at the store:
The store is a nice addition to Archer’s Aim and is just one way things are expanding. There are several more announcements coming soon which will reveal further growth, all of which are very exciting. Stay tuned for more to come in the near future!
Thanks for dropping by for the announcement. Please leave your thoughts in the comments and I’ll reply as soon as I can.
Happy Monday, everyone. With my recent return to more active work, specific updates to my writing schedule are in order. Here’s what’s next for The Bow of Hart Saga & The Cursed Mage Case Files.
The Cursed Mage Case Files
The Unseen Hand is still moving slowly. Artwork has not yet arrived. I’m digging out of the pile of unfinished work that needs my attention, like the site and blog posts. What is outstanding is a lot of work to push into a short amount of time. I remain committed to publication of the book this year. But a launch early this month is very unlikely. I’ll report more about this progress later this week.
Publication Schedule & The Bow of Hart Saga Sequels
My publication schedule has already been announced covering the next year. Here’s a change in that schedule.
For quite a while now I’ve been receiving requests through reviews, email and a few comments on the site requesting more of The Bow of Hart Saga. To confirm my intentions, yes, there will be sequel books to this series. The original series is already completed and Podium Audio published all three of the books under contract. For this reason, the planned sequel must be published separately.
In order to accommodate the increasing requests for more of Athson and Limbreth, I now have to change my schedule . I already have several books planned for publication this year and next. Due to my health issues, I have not begun any work on new books covering the world of Denaria. I do have material partially drafted for a parallel series that sets up what’s to come regarding Athson and Limbreth.
The plan is to publish this parallel series since it sets up what is to come in the sequel for the main characters. Likewise, I’ve already begun an outline of the sequel series and intend beginning a rough draft as soon as possible.
However I do have much of the upcoming year covered with work on The Cursed Mage Case Files and the first book of the Black Glove series. The updated schedule includes publication of Denaria-related books during the last half of next year at the earliest (unless something changes). That’s as fast as I can publish anything for that series since it will require editing and work for cover art.
I do encourage anyone interested in my writing to delve into The Cursed Mage Case Files in the meantime as that series will continue to grow and is quite a lot of fun. I will update more of my writing schedule regarding The Bow of Hart as I begin work on it during the next few months, so stay tuned here for news or join my email list and text list to receive additional information as it develops.
Thanks to everyone interested in more from Athson and Limbreth. The interest really lets me know that I wrote something many people like and want more of. If you are a fan of that series, one thing you can do for it is to share it with as many people as you can over social media or anywhere else you can think of as well as talk it up. I will be sharing printable bookmarks for that series as soon as I can and you are welcome to print them and share them with friends. I do have an announcements coming soon about additional ways to share with other people.
That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by to read the update. Please leave your thoughts in the comments section and I’ll reply as soon as possible. Here are some updated links (there are some official announcements to come soon about one of these).
Hey everyone, just a few announcements about things coming soon so this will be very quick as a heads-up.
The site will be busy the next couple of weeks with print releases. These releases aren’t big at this point, but they are not business as usual either.
First, will be the delayed paperback release of The Order of the Dark Rose. The release will be for KDP only (though there is extended distribution enabled). I’m pushing to have this series and other books in print much sooner than I did with The Bow of Hart Saga because I’m now more familiar with the formats and what my goals are for them. I’ve also seen more demand for them than expected so I’m happy to accommodate reading preferences.
Next comes the hardcover release of The Bow of Destiny. It’s a bit of a surprise to me that I’m even going to this print format. It may not create much in the way of sales immediately but I think it will be useful in the long term. As I’ve mentioned previously, I do have the goal of pushing these into bookstores, the details of which I’ll explain in a future post.
After that, early and mid-April will welcome both An Arrow Against the Wind and The Order of the Dark Rose into hardcover while The White Arrow will arrive in hardcover in early May. I’ll share more about each as the time comes, but you can find out more about my very fluid publishing schedule on my News page which has been cleaned up. If you would like to host a blog stop please let me know and we can work out dates for them (I’m very flexible). I’ll try to work on some events to cover all the new print releases to publicize them further but I’m not in a hurry since I view these as a long-term release.
Thanks for stopping today and please share this post as you like.
If you are interested in more about my books, here’s a bit about my most recent title, The Order of the Dark Rose: Volume 1 of The Cursed Mage Case Files…
An arch-mage can handle almost anything. Unless he’s cursed, lost his job and facing an unknown enemy.
The Gallantean Empire relies increasingly upon magical technology which cleans sewers, runs trams and much more. Within the capital city of Cal Rindon, magic is pervasive, but not necessarily used without criminal activity. The bustling metropolis boasts constant innovations mixed with growing pains. Amid the good lurks the bad with unrest and growing crime.
Arch-mage Manny Mandeheim fell under a curse, watched his fiancé die, and then lost his job as a spy. So what’s an arch-mage to do? Start his own magical investigation service while he works to clear his good name and maybe avenge his lost love. With his very un-magical partner, Wish Ackford, Manny discovers the menace of a much larger conspiracy than he expected looming behind his curse. The limitations from the hex leave him at a distinct disadvantage as he and Wish investigate.
Assassins lurk at every corner or in every tram car. The threat of an unknown mastermind with murky intentions lingers just out of sight. A questionable source offers the hint of a secret order hounding Manny’s footsteps. A murder leads to wrenching discoveries.
Nothing an arch-mage can’t handle…
Unless the curse limits how much magic he can use or kills him outright.
A mixture of gaslamp fantasy and Sherlock Holmes-like cases, The Order of the Dark Rose is a sleuth private detective mystery set in an alternate fantasy world where magic is both commonplace and dangerous. Mysteries abound in this original, new fantasy from P. H. Solomon, author of the award-winning, best-selling epic fantasy series, The Bow of Hart Saga.
Can Manny survive long enough to break his curse? Or will the arch-mage’s hidden foe escape him?
