Free Times Article On Serialized Publishing

Here is the direct link to the Free Times interview with me about Five Dollar Mail and the serializing of my books via this blog called:

Publishing Your Book One Chapter At A Time

- Gina

Book 2: Lynch's Boys Now Available

Howdy, all!

The Five Dollar Mail Book 2: Lynch's Boys is now officially available for Kindle and in trade paperback on Amazon. It features illustrations from the site by Liezl Bueneventura and Diego Candia, five work sketches that Angela Taratuta did when we were designing the cover, and, of course, the gorgeous cover painting from that same artist, and a guest chapter by our own Jenna Reid. Also, relevant back stories are included in the back.

It will be followed up later this year (hopefully) by an anthology (Riders & Kickers) which will contain the holiday specials and prequels that didn't make it into the trilogy. It will also contain a never-before-published story by myself and longtime reader Erin, and illustrated with unpublished artwork by Diego Candia.

Book three is still in the works, and is currently being written, so lots of FDM goodness coming your way in the coming year. 

Also, here's a link to the Free Times interview I did several weeks ago. Been looking forward to this for a while! I had a lot of fun talking to Mr. Charlie Nutt, the owner and publisher over there. Hopefully, this might get me some local exposure, which is always nice!

Thanks for your support, as always. This one is for all of you. See you Thursday!

Kevin Shi's Rasa

Howdy, all!

Discovered this awesome web serial some time back, and wanted to share it with you. It's called Rasa, and is a dark, epic fantasy set in a original world.

Author Kevin Shi sends this description:

Free will, family, individuality: here, these are not rights, but commodities. 

Every living thing in Albumere is born with a tabula, a disk that grants its owner complete control over the person linked to it, and it is in this brutal world that a young boy will do what no one has ever done before. He has found the tabula of a girl he has never met, and without knowing who or where she is, he is going to find a way to give it back. Following his journey, Rasa is both a simple romance about the power of a stranger’s generosity and a fantastic political epic spanning the breadth of a richly detailed world built entirely from the ground up.

It is gritty and dark, and reader discretion is advised. But knowing that you all have a taste for adventure, romance, and sprawling stories that don't follow the norm, I thought you might enjoy giving it a look.

Have fun, and see you later this week!
