To Ravencon, and BEYOND!

So, here we are. It’s a Monday, and I don’t know about where you are, but here, it is extremely dreary, rainy, mucky, and depressing. Doesn’t help the Monday Blues much, does it? (Correction: it’s a Wednesday now. Typed that part on Monday… :/ )

At least I have something to look forward to later this week.

Ravencon 2017 happens this Friday through Sunday, last weekend in April, as per usual. This will be my eighth year attending, and second year as a panelist. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, Ravencon is a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/mystery/fandom convention, mainly for writers, artists, and die-hard fans of pop culture and/or literature. The Dealer’s room is like a candy shop for avid readers, and the costume parade is amazing to watch. I have a handful of friends that attend regularly in cosplay, so it’s always fun to catch up and admire their hard work.

I’ve posted my schedule in [this post], but I’ll add it below as well, because I know my reading time.

That’s right.

I have a reading.

A READING.

*flailsexcitedly*

Have yet to figure out what to read, but *maybe* I’ll read from my secret project. Just *Maybe*.

Speaking of, no real updates or news on the #secretproject front, other than still awaiting my professional edits. Still cannot say anything else at this time.

HOWEVER! You may have seen this cover across my social media over the last week or so::

The_Vikan_Quartetv1

That is the cover for “The Vikan Quartet”, a collection of all 4 of my Tales of Terrara Vikos short stories, and includes a sneak peek into THE PROTEKTOR’S REALITY as well. It is now available for preorder as an eBook on most eBook platforms, and the links to it (and anything ToTV) can be found [here], on my Terrara Vikos page. Official Release Date for “The Vikan Quartet” is slated for May 15th, 2017 (Monday, 5/15/2017).

AAAAAAANNND…

*whispers* It’s gonna be in print.

*Louder* IT’S GONNA BE IN PRINT!!!

DON’T THEY LOOK JUST AMAZING?!

*ahem*

Sorry, but I’m currently bouncing off the walls over this.

Unfortunately, Print book won’t have preorders, but, if you’d like a reminder, I’m getting my email newsletter thingy set up again, and this release will probably be one of the first I send.

TWO WEEKS LEFT for #FearlessChaos!

“Account of Anxiety”, the first story in The Chaos Accounts saga, kicked off amazingly well. So far, almost 80 downloads in less than two weeks! Seems small, but unprecedented for me. 🙂

Actually, shorter time than that, because this story hasn’t had ANY downloads since Friday (1/27/2017).

o-ashamedanimals-facebook

😮

*GASP*

 

Yeah, it’s been that long. Three full days with no attention. It’s a shame, because my #FearlessChaos campaign is still running (until February 14th, 2017). Up to date total is somewhere around $17.00 already! In less than TWO WEEKS! But, I think we can do better. I will put the links below to “Account of Anxiety”, with the request and hope that you all share them, along with mentioning that every download will add to the donation pool for a mental-health charity! Making a difference, one download at a time.

Also, all of you out there that have finished reading “Account of Anxiety”? Reviews add to that pool of donations for Freedom From Fear as well. So, hop on over to Amazon and leave one, sillies!

I’d like to take a moment and thank my Patrons on Patreon, who are few in number, but not in support. It is my patrons who fund the writing and completion of The Chaos Accounts stories. If you liked “Account of Anxiety” and want to be a part of supporting the telling of Division 3’s adventures, considering becoming a Patron too. Patrons also get news and updates first, as well as other gifts for being a supporter of my work. Click [here] to be taken to my Patreon and to see what that’s all about.

More new on The Chaos Accounts coming soon. If you’d like to make sure you don’t miss any announcements, Like my [Facebook Author Page] or follow me on [Twitter].
