The first “Kindle Countdown Deal” for Sanctum of the Archmage: Dawn of Chaos has been scheduled! It will be available for 25 to 75% off from Thursday, June 28th through Tuesday, July 4th. And Prologue to Chaos will also be a free download from June 28 through July 2nd!
Updates for Sanctum of the Archmage: The Sight and The Quest, v4.2, are complete! I’m now beginning what I hope will be the final playtest before packaging the adventure modules for release. 🙂
The final edit of Sanctum of the Archmage: Dawn of Chaos is done!
All that remains now is a final proofreading pass, and integrating the final version of the cover (which I’m expecting from Charles any day now). The proofreading will only be for typos (of which I hope not to find any). Producing the Kindle file for upload shouldn’t take more than an hour. Barring any pre-release marketing I may decide to do, there doesn’t seem to be any reason I can’t publish by the end of the month at latest.
Prologue to Chaos – Introduction to the Sanctum of the Archmage saga — will be available to download for free on Sunday, February 12th.
The final edit of Dawn of Chaos — the first full-length novel in the saga — is moving steadily along, currently in chapter five. It’s still on track to be ready for release on Amazon Kindle next month.
I’m excited to debut the cover (by Charles Imbro) to my upcoming novel, Dawn of Chaos!
This is a near final draft. Aside from some minor touch-ups that Charles is working on now, this is how the final version will look.
I’m devoting February to doing two passes of final editing to get the manuscript ready for publication. If all goes well I should be ready to upload the e-book to the Amazon store in early March.
Until the beginning of next year, Sanctum of the Archmage: Prologue to Chaos can be downloaded for free on the first of every month. The next (and final) “Free on the First” promotion(s) will be:
- Sunday and Monday, January 1st and 2nd
Amazon also gives me a couple of extra days each quarter to make Prologue to Chaos a free download, in addition to my regular “Free on the First” promotions. The next of these promotions will be on:
- Sunday, January 8th
If you have an old copy of the prologue, this is a great opportunity to download the new and re-titled third edition. Just go to the “Manage your content and devices” link in Amazon under “Your Account,” and select “Actions… Delete” on your pre-3rd edition copy. (This should have the old title “Dawn of Chaos,” and the book’s old B&W cover with red borders.) Then visit the link below to download the 3rd edition, which features a new title and cover, as well as a full stylistic re-edit. 🙂
I’m happy to announce that the remake of my NWN adventure module, Sanctum of the Archmage 2: The Quest, is now complete and out for beta test. If all goes according to plan I should be able to post it for general release sometime next month.
The update includes version 4.2 of both Sanctum of the Archmage Chapter 1: The Sight, and Chapter 2: The Quest. When released they will both be included on my project page for The Sight, which will be updated to reflect that it now includes both modules.
The updates to Chapter 1 are mostly in the form of gameplay improvements. The changes to Chapter 2, however, constitute a remake that is similar in scope to the version 4 changes to The Sight. They feature new and re-built areas, new and expanded quests, new custom content, and lore changes to bring the story more in line with the novels. They also include a significant revamping of custom content to use the same integrated CEP and Project Q architecture as the first module.
Thanks to everyone for their patience. I hope you enjoy it!
After a couple of weeks of fairly intensive work, I’ve (tentatively) completed work on the remake of Sanctum of the Archmage 2, now titled The Quest. After a play-test this week to make sure there are no major bugs, I’m going to prepare the module for beta-test and subsequent release. Anyone interested in participating in the beta test, please feel free to comment here, or to PM me on my NeverwinterVault account.
I’m also currently editing and working on production of the now completed and first full-length novel in the series, Sanctum of the Archmage: Dawn of Chaos. If all goes according to plan it should be available on Kindle toward the end of the summer, probably in September.
