It's here! The big release of All Hail Emperor Gothon, the anticipated prequel to Trapped on Draconica has finally hit the writing world! Now you guys can get to see how Emperor Gothon became the mad emperor that he was in Trapped on Draconica and find out what REALLY happened to make him snap.
The novel is essentially my own version of a Shakespeare Tragedy, mixed in with a little bit of the classic play Caligula, by Albert Camus - but still set in the world of Draconica. Thought that Fantasy was all swords and sorcery? This is a slightly different spin on the Fantasy genre, taking it into a darker direction.
The novel is currently available from Smashwords - with Amazon Kindle to follow. At the moment, I seem to be having some problems with formatting it to the Kindle (as is always the case with Amazon!) but you can get a kindle format from Smashwords along with other formats. For those new to Smashwords, you do need to sign up to buy books - but there are a whole host of new and indie authors out there waiting to be discovered so I highly recommend it!

Paperback versions of the book will follow later in the year.
And now, the moment of truth. The winner of a free book copy (in a format of their choice) drawn at random from those who commented on the previous posts is...

Well done, Mysti! You'll be getting a Kindle copy coming your way very soon!
But for those who didn't win, I don't want you guys to feel down. So, you'll be pleased to know that I am ALSO offering a special discounted rate for the book for the entire month of April! Just click on the link above to go to the Smashwords page and use the code NM53H on checkout to get a massive 34% off the book. That makes the novel just 99 cents! Bargain!
Again a huge thank you for all you guys. You all rock! Enjoy the new book! There's more coming up in the weeks ahead!
In less than 24 hours, All Hail Emperor Gothon will be released! I don't know if I've told you guys how excited I am about this one, but just in case I haven't - I'm excited! lol.
There's still time to have the change to win yourself a free ebook copy of the book, for details see HERE. Winners will be announced tomorrow in place of my usual "Top Five Tips" blog as my weekend will be dedicated to this book - that and I'm trying to fix my damn washing machine that's decided to pack up today! Oh the life of an author is full of strife!
Anyway, enough of my problems - I should be looking forward to this weekend. A HUGE thank you to all those who have shown their support of this book and I really hope you guys enjoy it! The book will be sold on Smashwords to begin with, and then appearing on Amazon Kindle later (still having some formatting issues with it on Kindle) - but you will be able to get a kindle format of it through Smashwords anyway so that's all good.
Watch this space guys! Tomorrow I'll announce the winner of the free ebook!
With less than a week to go before the release of All Hail Emperor Gothon, I am just checking in to let you know that the novel will be available through Amazon Kindle and Smashwords as from the 21st April. A paperback of it will also be available around June time - to be premiered on my stall at London Anime Con 30th June!
I must say that I am excited for the release of this novel. Even though I didn't intend to do any prequel novels to Trapped on Draconica initially, I put so much time and effort into this that I felt I just had to share it with you wonderful people. So much so that I am now also planning two other prequel novels - one based around the character of Taurok and the other based around Daniar, the heroine of the book.
But that's not all, to coincide with the release of the book, I am currently offering ONE lucky reader of my blog a chance to win themselves a FREE ebook copy of All Hail Emperor Gothon. That's right, one of you guys will be able to get themselves a free copy of the book on the day it's released!
All you have to do to be in with a chance is leave a comment below - that's it! Nothing fancy, just leave a comment and winners will be selected at random on the 21st April. The winner will then be contacted on that day. Prizes can be sent in either PDF or Kindle format.
NOTE: This book will contain some adult themes that may be unsuitable for younger readers. Please be advised of this when entering.
Thanks to all those who have shown their support of this project and a HUGE thanks to the artist Brenna Albert, who has been such a diamond in this entire process! Bring on 21st April!
Until then, be sure to check back on Wednesday - we have a very special guest blog from author De Kenyon that I think you will find very interesting!
