I've Been Busy
So I've been exceptionally busy creating websites, making promotions for The Immortal's Guide and registering domain names. Insofar as actual writing, well that's taken a dive, but it is to be remedied fairly quickly seeing as how I have to update an E-Book format of The Dark World asap.
Since creating the website, which you can find by clicking the link, a greater direction of where I'm taking the series began to become clearer (even more so than it was before), and by allowing my fans to join the site, becoming "Dark Creatures" as it were, they are able to join the forums and post about their favorite characters, about the stories in general, or even vouch for their own breed of Creature or bash the others they don't agree with.
There's even a Character of the Week segment where I feature a much-talked about character for every week until October 31st. For the week of July 26th (till the 30th), the Character of the Week is one half of the titular character: Xavier Delacroix.
As for the promotion, it is detailed on the front page, but to just outline it here will be beneficial as well I think:
As a special promotion for The Immortal's Guide, I am willing, if my Dark Creatures are vocal enough, to place one rabid fan into the story. This fan must be registered with the website, must choose a breed of Dark Creature as his or her counterpart, and must be vocal in the forums, sharing ideas and criticisms with other members. And if this Dark Creature really wants to be included in the story, he or she must message me in any manner of communication, where he or she is willing to share their creative ideas, insights, and desires for their character and just where he or she can and will fit into the story.
**Special Notice: This specially chosen member will be given greater insight into the progression of the story as a result of this promotion if chosen. He or she, if chosen, is sworn unto greatest secrecy NOT to reveal any information about characters, plot progression, and anything else that is penned in The Immortal's Guide. This person will also be given a free copy of The Immortal's Guide courtesy of me.
(This promotion will run for every book here on out. A few months before the new book is to be released, I will start the promotion all over again. The rules and conditions are the same.)
So are you ready, Dark Creatures? The Dark World awaits.
