More Transcendent Teasers!

Posted in Updates with tags on September 18, 2016 by chemiclord

Here’s a little something-something about our heroine for you all to mull over as you await Transcendent‘s release in November.

Yes, there actually is stuff written under all that black. It will be revealed as it becomes pertinent within the story upon release, so make sure you drop in every month or so, because I might reveal clues there before they are revealed in story!

Introducing “Transcendent”…

Posted in Updates with tags , on September 4, 2016 by chemiclord

About a week and a half ago, Fred Gallagher showed me a free sketch he had made, specifically as an “iterative development” thing for me to form a story around.

It worked… very well.

So well, that by Youmacon (Nov. 3-6 in Detroit, Michigan) we should have the first “episode” of that story, titled Transcendent, ready for convention goers to look at.  At about that same time, that episode should launch on Kindle and Nook readers.

If anyone remembers the Megatokyo: Endgames short story “Behind the Masque”, that’s the sort of length, format, and pricing we’re looking at; a whopping $0.99 for each episode.  Then, as enough content is released (hopefully one episode a month), those episodes will be compiled into “seasons” and the volumes released in print for those of you who like them dead trees.

But in the meantime, whet your whistle on this short teaser of the first episode of  Transcendent.

On Going Back…

Just a minor update to report.

People who own the ebook versions of Dire Water and the Tower of Kartage might want to consider updating their copies.  There’s no content changes or anything, but the ebooks have been updated to function similar to the latter two the series with properly functional Table of Content links.

I hope you’ll like the alterations.  Going through old manuscripts and manually fixing the formatting issues that allowed me to submit my own compiled mobi and epub files was rather time consuming.

And Now There Were Four…

And at last, Book 4: The Daynish Campaign, is here.

This particular book came together during some pretty rough moments of personal drama, which didn’t help the pressure I put on myself to get it just right, and what contributed heavily to why it dropped a month later than my general goal of two books a year. The desire to get it just right is especially important to me because now we finally are going to start getting into the meat of the Endgames story.

While Tower of Kartage kinda set the mechanics of how the world works, and Dire Water and Fire Fox kinda gave us a bird’s eye view of the world itself and the events that take place, now we’re finally going to see a more ground level perspective, specifically of the adventuring days of Pirogoeth’s life that up until now had only been hinted at. This is really digging into actual canon events of the entire MT world, and I won’t deny being absolutely petrified at times that I will not present it in a quality fashion.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. I hope you enjoy it, and are ready to dig in further while I get Book 5, The Great Underground Empire, ready!

Tenatative Release Date for The Daynish Campaign

Posted in Updates with tags , , on April 16, 2016 by chemiclord

Time to start saving up pennies again!  Barring any unexpected delays, Book 4 of the Megatokyo Endgames series, The Daynish Campaign, will be released in paperback, Kindle, and Nook on May 20, 2016.

The Daynish Campaign First Draft

Posted in Updates with tags , on April 14, 2016 by chemiclord
Whew… okay… took a lot longer than I would have liked, but the first draft of Book 4 in the Megatokyo: Endgames series, The Daynish Campaign, is complete.
 
Once my editors get back to me, I’ll be able to pin down a release date.
 
However, thanks to steadily increasing production costs on Amazon’s end, the print versions of the novel will have to reflect those increased costs, and the price point for future books will be $11.99 for the foreseeable future.
 
I know… no one likes price increases. I’m really sorry!

The Fire Fox has Arrived! (Sorta)

Okay, ladies and gentlemen… bear with me here while I try and get you folks all up to date.

Amazon is doing weird things, some of which may be of benefit to all of you.

First of all, if you guys want the Kindle version of “Fire Fox”, it is actually available for pre-order for the 25th of September. Follow this link if you wish to do so: http://www.amazon.com/Fire-Fox-MegaTokyo-Endgames-Book-e…/…/

For Nook, they are dead set on a release on the 25th, no preorders or other bells and whistles. I’ll give you folks that link once it goes live.

Now, here’s where it gets weird. If you want the paperback version of Fire Fox… well… it’s available right now. Yep. Amazon’s jumping the gun by about 8 days. http://www.amazon.com/Fire-Fox-MegaTokyo-Endg…/…/0989931366/

I don’t know how this will affect Kindle matchbook or any other cross promotional deals, and I’ll update the main page once all three formats are officially released.  But if you really want the dead tree of the third book in the Endgames series, you folks are in luck. It’s here.
