A CIRCLE OF IRON is now available in ePub and Mobi formats. It's also available on Smashwords. It will take a few days (or more) before it shows up at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, the iTunes store, etc. When it goes live on Amazon, it will list for $0.99 because I can't list it for free. Hopefully they will price-match it to free once it's up on iTunes. Anyway, don't buy it! You can download the .mobi file here and load it onto your Kindle.
I'm starting to link back to this site, which means I'm getting a few visitors. I figured I should probably talk a little about what I have planned for Eldernost. I'll be publishing a new novella in the series every two months, all about the same length as A CIRCLE OF IRON -- approximately 24,000 words. Each novella will have a different protagonist, at least for the first "cycle." I reserve the right to pull in multiple POV characters in future books as the series matures. I'm currently writing Book Two, A SERPENT IN THE STONE, which introduces readers to Lyssa, a young girl who is both a scav and an apprentice to the alchemist Scorza. In the course of Lyssa's adventures in Eldernost, we'll learn a lot more about magic and the alchemical treatments that grant immortality to the Grays, as well as some dark secrets from the past hidden in the ruined city itself. A SERPENT IN THE STONE will be released in late July.
The full text of A CIRCLE OF IRON is up as an embedded Scribd document. You can find it here. The book will be released in all digital formats, but formatting is waiting on the cartographer. I'll be posting the maps here as well.
Site design is underway. I'm about 6,000 words into the first novella, The Watcher in the Wood, but I want the site to be up and running once it is published. Besides, sometimes I need to take a break from writing and tinker with something else. And because I remember the "old days" when it might take weeks or months to get a website up and running, and because I want to tinker, I give you this. You're welcome.
