Local Author Fair

Exciting announcement #2: I’ve been accepted to be part of the Local Author Fair hosted by my library!

This will be in a couple of weeks (eep), and I’m working hard to get everything ready in time. I’m looking forward to meeting some other authors in my area too! Might even sell a couple of books while I’m at it. 🙂

Those are the exciting updates for now, but I hope to have more in the near future.

Minnesota Book Awards

Exciting announcement #1: The Wizard of Suomen is officially nominated for a Minnesota Book Award!

The initial round of judging happens over the winter, and four books from each category are announced at the end of January (“genre fiction” for me). I have my fingers crossed that TWoS will at least make it that far! Winners for each category are announced in April.

I probably won’t have many updates about this until January, but will be sure to post anything that comes up. 😀

In honor of print copies being available…

…it makes sense to run a sale on the ebook, right? XD

Countdown Deal on The Wizard of Suomen starting today at $0.99. Or, if you prefer to read a physical book, those are $12.99.

I hope you enjoy it!

Wow

It is hard to express how amazing it is to hold a print copy of your book in your hands.

Cover by Luke Brickley, and interior formatting by Larks & Katydids.

As this post might suggest, print copies of The Wizard of Suomen will be available through Amazon in a few days! When it is, I’ll also run a sale on the ebook for anyone who’d like to give it a try for a bit less than $12.99.

Working through CreateSpace was a pretty easy process! I was careful to check all of their specs beforehand, so I didn’t have any trouble with their review process, and the proof (pictured above) looked great.

I will (hopefully) be attending some events local to me over the next few months, and will have print copies available at those as well. More posts about those as they come up!

(Seriously, though, this still gives me shivers even days later. ^_^;; )

Quick Update

While I don’t post as often as I’d like to anyway, I’m going to be especially busy for the next couple of months (mostly with fun things, fortunately!), so posts may be even leaner than usual. But I’ll still try and get in a couple of reviews and some writing updates.

Things are getting nice and green outside, though, and it is finally spring! It’s nice to listen to the birds and the frogs calling while I work on things.

I will say that print copies of The Wizard of Suomen will be available soon! The ebook is $2.99 on Amazon, if you are looking for a good sword-and-sorcery.

When Elof Kálmári arrives at the border in southeastern Suomen, he hopes that rumor has exaggerated the trouble he is walking into. He has heard that this conflict with their neighboring country is serious, and that his new commanding officer is a magic-user. To his dismay, both rumors are true. Elof struggles to deal with the unfamiliar, destructive magic wielded by their enemies and his own leader, General Virtanen. Then disaster strikes: the enemy gains access to the very heart of Suomen, Suomen’s King makes a series of increasingly unwise decisions, and uncertainty and mistrust divide their allies. General Virtanen, Elof, and his comrades must put everything on the line to keep the King alive and give their people a fighting chance against a powerful enemy. Come find out which way the Winds will blow…
