Here we are once again!
It took a bit, but I've been working on a number of different things book related and I wanted to make sure I did the book justice in the process. So, let me just go down the list:
All the books are available in paperback now. This is a HUGE pain in the booty because of all the tiny things that have to be done right/corrected. You'll notice the little taglines on the paperbacks are different from those on the ebooks. For whatever reason, Amazon insisted that the paperbacks have the book name on the cover (Ammit, A'loc, etc) but they didn't seem to care about the ebook version. Either way, they are all out and ready for consumption. Here, have a link: http://www.amazon.com/Nicholas-Forristal/e/B0084MVBEU/
I've been preparing to do local conventions, hence the need for paperbacks. Additionally, I've been making buttons, prints, bookmarks and looking into getting shirts made. If there's anything you'd like to see/buy let me know and I'll look into it.
Currently, I have 2 prints made up for sale. Over the next few days I'll post them on here as a blog post.
I've been trying to set up an online store for this website and for facebook. Initially it was so that I could offer signed books, something I cannot do through amazon. Well, the thing that's prevented me from putting up the store is international shipping. Domestic shipping is easy and can be done cheaply. That isn't the case with international. As a test, I had a fan/friend check Scotland for me - $30 shipping for one book. What I'll probably do is put up the store and only offer shipping in (maybe) N. America. I need to look into Canada and Mexico. Hopefully that shipping won't be insane. Everything I'd sell that the conventions will be sold online as well.
Book 5 of CoM is basically done. I have a few chapters I want to go through one more time and then it's going to the editor.
