Teaser Monday 1

Hi, hi!

So… February! I can’t believe it’s here already. Knowing we are entering release month is both amazing and nerve-wracking. I have a couple of things lined up but the schedule of it all is pretty much nightmarish.

But anyways, you guys don’t want to know about that. Instead, let me tell you what’s going to happen over the next month, ok?

Well, leading to the release date of February 29 (mark your calendars, people!) I’m going to be releasing some weekly content about the book and the world in which the book develops: Vallenthar.

Here’s how it looks:

Monday: Teaser Day (We are going to have three more teasers before the book is live, the one today being the first in the line up. Each teaser contains a piece of the book so gather them up!)

Wednesday: Glossary/Word of the Day (Like any self-respecting fantasy world, Vallenthar has its own geography and languages. For the rest of February we are going to be learning some more about that, exploring the map of Vallenthar and learning the locations and terminology that you are going to be seeing in the book once is out. This glossary as a whole will be available as a single illustrated piece in my website after the release day, so if you missed a post, you know where to go!)

Friday: Meet and Greet  (Every Friday night I’ll be presenting one of the main character of my series, in ascending order of importance. I’ll tell you a little bit about them, their background and why you are going to want to know more about them. Look forward to it!)

The rest of my posting schedule, including the Straight from… posts and all other content I blog about is going to remain the same, so I’m not slacking off in that sense. But people, it’s release month, release month! Precursory measures must be taken!

Oh, gosh, so busy, so busy!

Enjoy your teaser and see you on Wednesday. 😉

 

New Year, New Teaser!

It’s been a while since I did a Progress Report.

The holidays really hit my blogging career, but we are still on track! The manuscript is going through his last round of editings and cover and blurb are already up (so prettyyyyyy!!!!) I’ll probably be releasing them by the end of this week.

Pre-Order for The Razvak Hunter will be available soon so make sure to keep an eye out, and next monday will be the launching of the Arel B. Grant Official Author Page (sounds professional and everything!) So excited!

For now, another teaser for you, dear readers of mine (however few you may be). The third in our group of ten. Doesn’t it look lovely?

See you later, and keep reading everybody!

Progress Report!

It’s been awhile since my first progress report and we’ve been moving forward since then, slowly but steadily. We are now entering the 20,000 words deadline. Yikes! That means long days, exhausting editing and juggling word count with day job so as to not burn all your ships too early. It’s all nice and dandy on the road to NYT Bestselling (visualization is key, people, key!), but one still needs to eat.

Big changes from last time:

  • New Title! I realized the “Journey” title was a little bit on the vague side. After all, I want my future score of avid readers (la-la-la-la) to be able to find my book and not be stuck among a dozen of travel manuals, so that’s it. New title! Nice and shiny and totally appropriate: The Razvak Hunter makes its debut.
  • New Teaser Format! Our previous teaser was rather boring, wasn’t it? And even if it wasn’t, it’s gone. Our new teaser format is going to be the standard from now on, and it’s also the base for the covers that are going to appear sometime this month (look forward to it). Hope you enjoy!

With that in mind, I’ll leave you another teaser, and  encourage you to wait for the grand cover reveal that will be happening by the end of this month, along with the blurb release for all of you to read and be excited about (again, visualization :D)

Anyways, that was progress report for today, hopefully, they will start coming more often. Next report will be about entering the 10k words deadline (fingers crossed) and also the release of my official webpage, which should be up and about by early December. So much to do! So little time!
