As I’m sure most of you know, SIEGE LINE, the 3rd book in my REAWAKENING prequel trilogy and my 6th published novel, comes out on Halloween.
I said in an earlier tweet that’s its a bittersweet release for me. It marks the end of my first story arc, a world I’ve been laboring in/on for 6 years as a pro, and at least a decade as an aspirant. I’m both sad and relieved to see this part of my career come to a close. I’ve been accused before of creating my own sub-genre here (contemporary military fantasy), and while I’m careful not to lay claim to it (for fear I missed another author who did it first), I do take some pride in the idea. It’s been a wild ride, and one I’m incredibly grateful to you all for joining me on.
To celebrate, I’m doing my last release giveaway for a SHADOW OPS book. This one is an open fan art contest. The winners will receive a signed copy of SIEGE LINE. ARCs for the top 2 entries, and mass-market paperbacks for the next 3.
ALL fan art of ANY kind is accepted. Send me drawings of characters, monsters, tech or landscapes. Send me songs, or staged photographs, poems or fan fiction. Send me SHADOW OPS inspired recipes or cosplay. You name it, if it’s art, it counts and it’s a solid entry into the contest.
Email me, tweet at me, FB me, post to the comments section of this blog. I’ll announce winners on 10/28, and start shipping out books soon after.
SHADOW OPS and the prequel REAWAKENING trilogy have been successful beyond my dreams. The fact that they’re published at all is due to your steadfast support, and I don’t know how else to pay you back other than to say thank you. And write more books, of course, since you seem to be into that sort of thing.
Thanks again, so much. Psyched to see what you come up with. Let’s close this world out on a high note.
