It’s been a few months since my last blog post. During that time I’ve been very busy, both with some personal things, and with some ongoing but unheralded work to further my new career as an indie author and publisher. As of this afternoon, however, I’m finally able to announce some major news. Editing and file preparation for the e-book and “print on demand” paperback editions of Dawn of Chaos, the first of ten volumes in the Sanctum of the Archmage Saga, are now complete.
My only remaining tasks are to set up the “pre-order” pages for the releases, which I’ll be doing over the next few days. That’ll start with publishing the ebook on my website. After that both versions should be available through Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo. Aside from setting up the order pages, the only thing I’m still waiting for is the updated cover file adjusted for the paperback edition’s final spine width — which my cover artist, Alex Perkins, is working on now.
The print edition will be published on groundwood eggshell paper through Ingram Spark. The cover will be in “duplex,” with full-color maps on the two inside flaps. I’m also looking at options for ordering the print book through my website, which should be available in January at the latest. With luck, the rest should be available before the end of the year.
A follow-up post with the order pages will be following shortly. So stay tuned!
