DEAD MECH and the Apex Trilogy
Many of you may know, but many more may not, that Severed Press has picked up the entire Apex Trilogy!
They will be re-releasing DEAD MECH, The Americans, and Metal and Ash this summer. The ebook for DEAD MECH should be up for sale by this weekend (July 5th), with the others following soon. The print books take a little longer due to formatting, printing, etc. But ebooks, yay!
And I get to show you the new cover for DEAD MECH:
I posted it super big so you could see the coolness. Now, I am a HUGE fan of the original cover, but when switching to Severed we needed to make sure to differentiate between the two releases. That means if you have the original it is now a collectors’ item! Um, if there are collectors out that collect my stuff. Sure there are!
How is this version different? Everything is the same except for some serious line edits and proofreading. Not that the first one was a jumbled mess of Esperanto, but the editing (while professional) wasn’t tight. This manuscript is tight. TIGHT! The same treatment will be given to The Americans and Metal and Ash.
So be on the lookout for the announcement of the re-release of DEAD MECH! Spread the word, get a copy with the new cover, tell your friends, buy fifty paperbacks and chuck them at strangers while screaming, “Eat that, deader scum!”. Or something along those lines.
I will keep you posted as it all progresses to glory! GLORY!
Friday Night Drabble Party!
Friday has risen and it is hungry for Drabbles!
Good thing I have one for it tonight. You’ll be able to read it below before it is devoured.
I also have many more drabbles for Friday in the form of One Foggy Night: A DEAD MECH Prequel Short. This is currently free on Amazon! Go get yourself a copy. Have your friends, family, neighbors, enemies get a copy too! If we get it into the Top Ten of any bestseller list on Amazon then I will record it and put it in the audio feed. That means you can buy it and not even have to read it yourself! ALL FOR FREE! What a country!
So get to that.
And now for tonight’s Drabble…
The split up the backside of her jeans wasn’t the problem; being larger than most girls she’d split her seat plenty of times before.
The entire cafeteria laughing wasn’t the problem; she’d dealt with that many times.
The laughter by the football team, especially her secret crush, wasn’t the problem either; he was the star quarterback and she knew she never had a chance.
The building rage that boiled over and turned into a blinding, murderous wave of energy wasn’t the problem; that was pretty cool, actually.
No, the problem was: what would she do with all the bodies?
Disclaimer: At no point do I condone mass murder by telekinesis.
FREE! FREE! FREE!
So about a month ago I published One Foggy Night: A DEAD MECH Prequel Short. This was a story I wrote a couple years ago as part of a prize for a contest I ran.
My plan when I published it was to wait until it was price matched as free on Amazon so I could then really announce it and see if we could push this little sucker up the charts. And it is now free on Amazon!
So let’s push this little sucker up the charts! All you have to do is click on the cover photo below and you will be taken to the ebook page on Amazon. Buy that puppy and spread the word! It’s free so tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc. No one has to read it or even like it, just buy it. This will help gain some exposure for DEAD MECH and the whole Apex Trilogy as the Summer reading season fast approaches.
It costs you nothing, just a little time, that’s all.
AND, guess what? If we hit the Top Ten in any category on Amazon I’ll record this puppy and throw it in the feed! You don’t even have to read it! You can just pimp this bitch and kick back and wait for my wonderful voice to fill your earholes with sweet, sweet wordy love!
Now get to clickin’!
