A Special Pandragon Halloween Treat (or Trick?)

Before we start, I'd like to extend my thoughts to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy recently. If you all have friends and family that have been caught up in this terrible event, then you'll be in my prayers.

 

Well it's that time of year again and I wanted to do something special for Halloween on my blog this year. Some of you may know that I planned to do a let's play of the video game Slender: The Eight Pages. Sadly, my plans for that fell through pretty quickly - mainly due to the fact that I could not get any good video capture for it, nor could I really do it the way that I think would do it justice. I may attempt to do it again later in the year, but I decided to scrap it for today.

 

But fear not! I have something very special planned for today! I managed to get His Excellency Emperor Gothon, villain of Trapped on Draconica, to do a cover of a classic pop meme that has been doing the rounds over the internet and the music charts. And let's face it - what could be scarier than that?

 

So I present to you, for a Halloween treat (or trick), Emperor Gothon explaining his motives for world domination. And he's gonna do it GOTHON STYLE!

 

 

EDIT: This was a joke that didn't exactly go according to plan - and in hindsight was a pretty lousy attempt at humour. So I removed the video from Youtube. Sorry guys, but you geniunely aren't missing much I promise you!

 

Please feel free to leave your comments below and share this video with all your friends!

 

I'd like to wish all my fans, followers, friends and family a very Happy Halloween. Stay safe peeps and have a good one!

 

 

Image above is something that I found on Google. But I kinda like it and think it goes well with the blog.

All Hail Emperor Gothon - Today!

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! Click on the picture below to be taken to the link.

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...

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.

5 Days Until All Hail Emperor Gothon Hits The Writing World

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!

All Hail Emperor Gothon

Hey guys! You guys may have noticed the new background on my blog (or not), showing the number of novels I have out currently. You may also notice another one that isn't out - yet.

 

Well, good news! I am pleased to let you guys know of the next book that I have coming out within the few weeks. All Hail Emperor Gothon is the first Trapped on Draconica prequel novel that is based around the character of Emperor Gothon. A synopsis of the piece (as well as the front cover) is below.

"The road to the Necroworld was built from stones forged on human kindness."

 

In Trapped on Draconica, Emperor Erik Gothon III was a seemingly unstoppable tyrant - sending out his armies across Draconica in the hope to save his wife from a disease that no medicine could cure. The truth, however, was far darker than anyone could imagine.

 

Before all that, however - before the incident that destroyed his mind - Erik Gothon was an idealistic, if somewhat naive young man that sought to save the Baalarian Empire from the hell that his father had made it. However, his good intentions will eventually destroy those around him - even that of the woman he loves.

 

Set years before the events of Trapped on Draconica, All Hail Emperor Gothon is a dark tale of one man's descent into madness - and the genesis of Trapped on Draconica's most complex and tortured character.

 

 

The book is much darker than my previous works and not one that is recommended for younger readers. Inspired in part by great Shakespearne tragedies, this is the first of what I hope to be a few spin off novels that I have planned. Hopefully you guys will like reading it and find it an interesting companion piece to Trapped on Draconica. I'm kinda excited by this and hope that others will be to.

 

Release date for the novel is 21st April 2012 (which is the Queen's of England's birthday, so it seemed kinda appropriate). However you can read a sample chapter of it NOW by following this link and following the instructions.

 

ALL HAIL EMPEROR GOTHON SAMPLE CHAPTER

 

Please feel free to comment me below with any questions. And don't forget to check back here on the 21st April 2012 when I'll be officially announcing the released of the book!

 

Thanks guys!
