After creating promo videos for other people’s books, I thought it was about time that I made one for one of my own. I hope you agree it captures the mystery and wonder that the book itself evokes in its readers so far.
If you haven’t tried it yet, see what all the fuss is about by following this link.
Sci Phi Journal is under new management, with a new look and new business strategy, though many of the old staff have stayed on, including myself. All the subscriber-only stories from the previous website are now free to read, other changes to how things will move forward can be found here:
The paperback version of Beyond the Mist is now available for purchase in all amazon territories, and Kindle Matchbook has been activated, meaning that anyone purchasing a paperback through amazon can download the kindle version for free.
The option of buying directly from the author for readers in the Czech Republic is not yet available, but the first consignment of books should get to me withing the next couple of weeks.
The createspace link for the paperback is now live.
Amazon link will be up in three to five business days. The amazon link will offer the possibility of free shipping to the same territory, and a free copy of the ebook to go with it, as well as boosting the book’s rating; the createspace link gives me a greater royalty per sale.
I leave it up to the discerning customer to decide which option they prefer.
You can grab the ebook version of Beyond the Mist at amazon right now.
The paperback version is being worked on, and the book’s dedicated page has been updated.
John C. Wright seems to like it over at his blog, you can read his foreword and almost the first three chapters (including one of Cat Leonard’s wonderful illustrations) via amazon’s ‘Look Inside’ feature.
This is a supremely exciting time for me, and a big relief to finally have it out there for you all to enjoy.
Spread the word!
(And this is the 200th post on this blog. Highly appropriate!)
The Kindle ebook version of Sci Phi Journal Issue 8, the last issue of the journal in its current format, has just gone on sale at amazon
Chapters 14 and 15 of Beyond The Mist appear in Sci Phi Journal Issue 8
The reasons for the format change, as well as what to look forward to in this fine issue are given in the message from the editor, which can be read (together with the first three pieces of flash fiction) through Amazon’s ‘Look Inside’ feature at the above link.
Chapter 14 and 15 of Beyond the Mist appear in this issue, and a number of entertaining stories and fascinating articles, so flex your mighty index finger muscles and click on that link, or visit Sci Phi Journal’s patreon page to become a subscriber and exchange your hard-earned dollars, pounds, crowns, Ugandan shillings or Exoxanthian Freknars (I hear the exchange rate is very good right now) for some prime reading material now and into the future!
Issue 8 of Sci Phi Journal, which will be the last issue of the journal in its current format, will feature chapters 14 and 15 of Beyond the Mist. The last two installments will continue in the new sustainable format, which will mean I’ll start get paid for the editing work I’ve been doing on the journal as well as for my contributions, though the initial rates may be lower until subscriptions pick up, details on the new setup can be found here.
Cat Leonard’s second illustration, depicting the protagonist’s first look at the wilderness valley as he emerges from the trees, will appear in Issue 8, and looks like this:
The other two illustrations will be done, and will appear in the final standalone publication of Beyond the Mist, which will be available both in ebook and paperback form after the last two installments have been made available to Sci Phi Journal subscribers in due course.
