Spiralchain books will be available directly from the author at the 2016 Wizard World Des Moines comic book convention! Work on Book 5 begins in earnest this month, now that the outline has come together–and more news about the short story anthology (including a title!) is coming in June! Here’s the great poster that series artist Andrew J. Aguirre made for the show!
Stop by booth C28 if you are at the convention and get any books from the series you are missing and an exclusive Spiralchain bookmark! This convention is also the debut of Jeremiah L. Schwennen’s new series, The Omnigenos Chronicles… which just may contain a few secrets of the Spiralchain!
First thing this morning, the Kickstarter campaign for Spiralchain: Metalbreaker went live. You can visit the following link to pledge your support for Metalbreaker and score a pre-order of the book in any of a number of great formats, including a brand new deluxe slipcase hardcover option!
I also just added a new story to the Spiralchain universe… a short-short (about 3 pages long) set after Mindshaper and concurrently with Metalbreaker. Check it out on the Downloads page, but be warned–this story contains major spoilers for Mindshaper if you have not yet read it!
Two small matters that might be of interest to Spiralchain fans out there…
1. The July 1 price drop came a bit slower than expected, but all digital editions of Gatemaker should be dropping to $4.99 USD over the course of the next few days. Amazon/Kindle usually drops first, with iBookstore and Nook store taking a bit longer. Hopefully the August price drop will be right on time!
2. Paperback cover is coming along nicely. By the end of the month, if all continues on pace, the paperback edition of Gatemaker will be available through Lulu.com and, within another month after that, other traditional retailers. Thank you so much for your support of Gatemaker in its digital and hardcover formats! UPDATE: Paperback now available!
3. Mindshaper is coming along slow and steady, with a January 1 release date still likely. Look for previews to start in earnest in September or October.
