Happy Wednesday!

Thank you! Yesterday's print release of THE DAY BEFORE went exceptionally well. Thank you for pre-ordering and hitting the local bookstores to pick up your copy.

Starting a new series is always a bit terrifying. There's no guarantee fans of previous books will like the new ones. There's always a good chance the new series will fail to catch anyone's attention or find a fan base of its own. Overall, it's nerve-wracking to put Book 1 of a new series out on the shelves. It might be worse when it is Book 1 and people cheerfully tell you they'll wait until the entire series is out before they buy any of them.

Despite all my worries, release day went very well. THE DAY BEFORE isn't an Amazon bestseller yet, but it's in the top 100 on Kobo (thank you, Canada!) and selling strong at local retailers. Several of you sent photos from the bookshops yesterday and that was awesome!

And, for those who read the newsletter, there was a secret giveaway hidden in there. A few of you have found it, and I have prizes waiting for a few more people who maybe didn't get a chance to read the newsletter yet.

The secret giveaway will probably become a feature of the newsletter. It's all based on luck. Scientist Richard Wiseman studied luck and found it's mostly about looking for opportunities, taking chances. In support of that theory the giveaway in each newsletter will be in plain sight. If you read the newsletter, you'll be able to find it with ease. :)

Now, it is summer break, and the sun is shining, so I'm taking the kids to the park for a picnic. What are you doing today?

Impulse Buy Book of the Week: VEILED EMPIRE by Nathan Garrison

The Empire is Shrouded, not only by the barrier that covers the land, but by the lies and oppression of the mierothi regime. Magic is the privilege of the elite, and the people of this shadowed country have forgotten what it means to hope under their rule.
But there are some who would resist, with plans put into motion millennia before. For returned to the Empire is a valynkar, servant of the god of light, and with him come the strength and cunning that could tip the scales to end the Emperor's reign. He has gathered a group of heroes ready to ignite the flame of rebellion and fight against the dark power that has ruled for nearly two thousand years. A power that has champions of its own.

Nathan Garrison's Veiled Empire throws a mythical land into chaos, with races long thought forgotten, and magics only just discovered. Steel and sorcery clash as brave souls vie for freedom and control in this astonishing debut novel.

Nathan says:
I have two great boys and an awesome wife who is way more supportive of my writing efforts than I deserve. I love playing guitar (the louder the better), cooking (the more bacon-y the better), playing board/video/card games with friends and family, and reveling in unadulterated geekery.

Born in 1983, I've been writing stories since my dad bought our first family computer. I grew up on tales of the fantastic. From Narnia and Middle-Earth to a galaxy far, far away, I've always harbored a love for things only imagination can conjure up. I count it among the greatest joys of my life to be able to share the stories within me.
