Greetings! Long time no see! I hope your holidays and New Year were a fantastic end to 2012 and beautiful beginning to 2013.
I have a lot of news to share. For those who follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed the new book trailers I’ve posted in the last few days. Yes, I started dabbling in a new art form–Windows Movie Maker. And, believe me, it truly is a form of art to get that finicky piece of Microsoft software to do what I want it to… But I am happy to report that in the battle for a put-together book trailer, I am winning! There will be more trailers to come, I hope to have one for each of my books, but for now, check out my YouTube Channel to see what you might have missed and enjoy this little piece (my absolutely first, very virginal attempt at making a trailer so don’t laugh too hard, the second one already looks better!):
And that is not all! I am happy to report that The Royal Wizard is now safely in the very competent hands of my editor and I can therefore finally announce the release date! Come March 3, 2013, there will be a new literary baby born to Smashwords. I will have cameras and tissues ready.
With all that said, it’s time for the good part! I would like to share another little piece of this book, a preview of what will be to come. If you missed it, you can still read the unedited Prologue here. But today, I am also adding the unedited Chapter One for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
