Surprise! Print for The Bow of Destiny

I’ve been hinting about it for a long time but I finally got serious and put together a print edition of The Bow of Destiny. It’s another big change for the series and I’m excited to make print available. I just had too many people telling me that they preferred print. That feedback had me interested in the format so I started the work a while back and had the print cover created.

The last year was a challenge with some ailments so I’ve been slow to get it completed along with a lot of other writing projects. My energy has gotten back to a good level so I’ve been putting the finishing touches on the print edition and now it’s available on Amazon with the other two formats ebook and audio. It’s even available in print on Barnes and Noble.

I didn’t think I’d be so thrilled but there truly is something about having your book in your hands and seeing the words in print. It was a similar feeling hearing the book read by a narrator when the audio version arrived.

So what’s next? Well, for starters, please share this book as much as possible – it’s really appreciated when someone does that. Next, a print cover will be ordered for An Arrow Against the Wind and that book will be formatted for print. I’ll try to do that as soon as possible, followed closely by The White Arrow.

While all that is moving along, I’ve got other a few other fantasy series in the works that I’ll share about another time. Both of the first books in those are being edited so I hope at least one makes it into release by the end of the year.

For now, I’m just going to sit back and enjoy my first book’s arrival in print! Here are the details if you are interested in the print version:

Announcing BIG Writing News & More!

Greetings to all the Archer’s Aim readers! There have been few posts during the last couple of months, mainly because I’ve been on a break while I’ve been hard at work on my newest books.

There are number of new developments since the last updates but I want to thank the thousands of readers of The Bow of Hart Saga for all the support. This has been an amazing journey and it’s wonderful to have so many people along for the fun. It’s hard to explain how unusual it is for a first book, or first series, to capture the attention of so many people but I am humbled by the number of readers who have taken a chance on a newer author such as me and found the writing enjoyable. My sincere hope is to provide even more entertaining fiction in the near future.

Speaking of the future, here are a few updates about current and future books:

The Bow of Hart Saga is coming to audiobook on Audible on 9/25 ( the free books, Trading Knives and What Is Needed will release to audio on 9/20). Podium Publishing has the series in post-production and will send me the pre-order links as soon as they are available. It’s exciting to expand the availability of the series to audio and I’m looking forward to hearing the production soon for myself. Additionally, there will be some new artwork associated with the audiobook so I look forward to sharing that within a matter of weeks.

Since the series will expand into audio, I’ve decided to also offer the books in print. The series is self-published so I have few choices and lack true distribution channels to bookstores. With that in mind, I’m currently at work to release The Bow of Destiny in print on demand starting in September. An Arrow Against the Wind and The White Arrow will follow soon after during the fall. I’ve received quite a few requests for print so I’m happy to oblige!

Work on “Mage” (this is a codename) continues and I’m likely going to give Inkshares at try very soon. When the time comes, I’ll share more about the project and how it works on this hybrid publisher format. My decision is based on the need to publish in as many formats as possible upon release which is beyond my means to accomplish. Inkshares is a hybrid publisher which can release “Mage” in print, e-book and audio with full distribution to bookstores. A sample will be posted in the coming weeks with an opportunity for readers to support the project through pre-orders. Editing for “Mage” is progressing and, as things develop, I’ll share more about the book. Based on some early reactions, I think readers will really enjoy it. Take a moment and follow me on Inkshares where you can be sure to find out the latest about the book as it happens!

After some additional consideration, “Glove” (this is another codename) will likely also be given a chance on Inkshares. While this is a much shorter book than Mage, I believe it will be just as entertaining. However, since I have done so much dictation on my morning and evening commutes, I now have quite a backlog of editing. I’m working to get around to putting some time into this book, but it may be a couple of months before I actually get there.

Both “Mage” and “Glove” are exciting projects for me and I’m trying to take as much time as possible to properly develop them. Work on these books may be somewhat slow but I believe that they will turn out to be very rewarding novels for readers. I’m equally excited about sharing more regarding these books as time goes by and I can hardly contain myself. However, I do need to keep these books a bit under wraps until it’s much closer to releasing these two books.

I have two additional books that are starting two new series that I have also talked about. These will both likely to be LitRPG books. One of these is the first book of The Broken Shield Chronicles. I’m developing these two books in my spare time (like I have any) and I’m equally excited to be able to share more about them as soon as possible. Again, getting to these two books may take several months but I think they will also be very fun to read once they are ready.

There are so many new books in my writing pipeline and I look forward to releasing several beginning later this year or early next year. I don’t know my exact release schedule for the next sixteen months but I should be very busy constantly working to provide some fun, quality novels within a matter of months. I will have more information available over that time and hope to begin sharing about these novels as soon as I am able.

Look for more information about The Bow of Hart Saga audiobook and print release news within the next few weeks or so through the later part of September. Thanks again to all the readers and fans, I know that I would never have made it this far without you all. Please leave your thoughts and questions in the comments section and I’ll answer as soon as I can.

Wrapping Up the Week Vol. 4

So I’ve been a little sporadic for the past month or so as well as sick with the flu. The truth is that it’s been rather busy with revising An Arrow Against the Wind and the holidays. Around all the activity, I’ve been exploring a few interesting options for The Bow of Destiny – but I’m not ready to discuss details quite yet. But here are a few happenings for me the last month or so:

  1. The Bow of Destiny has gone over 4,000 copies sold! That’s another reason I’ve been busy – there’s just to much juggling to do some days.
  2. The Bow of Destiny was named the 2016 Book of the Year by Fantasia Reviews! Wow, I’m truly honored.
  3. I’m considering options for going to print with The Bow of Destiny. I’m starting to get requests for print regularly, especially from college age students. I do have a print cover ready to go depending on my decision with my options:

4. Last, but certainly not least, I’ve accepted an invitation to take part in Story Empire, a shared author blog. I’ll begin posting this month and even sharing some of what’s posted there by other authors.

It’s a busy start to the year but I’m looking forward to it. There are a number of amazing doors opening for me right now and I intend to follow-up with more novels this year, starting with the release of An Arrow Against the Wind as soon as I can.
