Taking a few minutes out of being trapped at home by a blizzard (AGAIN) to toss out a quick update on Action Figures – Issue Four: Cruel Summer. There’s not much new to report, really, but it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, so I’m rectifying that.
On a brief side note, the radio silence has been due to an insanely busy few weeks, between working shows with my wife (Veronica of Storied Threads) and attending stage combat seminars to get my fighting chops back after a long hiatus. I haven’t swung a sword since last year’s Connecticut Renaissance Faire’s Robin Hood Springtime Festival, and this year’s show will be here before I know it. And who knows? Maybe it will stop snowing by then.
Back to business. I’ve seen some preliminary cover artwork from my artist, Tricia Lupien, and it looks like another killer piece is on the way. Quick plug: you can grab a couple of her past AF pieces, along with some of her other artwork, on a variety of items over at her Redbubble store.
Everything is on track for a late March release, and as a lead-in to the new release, I’ll be making the Kindle edition of Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins available for just 99 cents the week of March 9 through March 13. If you happen to be a new reader, this will be a great time to jump into the series.
If you’re more patient, you could always wait until July, when Secret Origins will be part of a collection of superhero-themed e-books that will be available through StoryBundle. It’s a cool site that provides indie authors with an opportunity to connect to new audiences, while offering readers a chance to find some new reading material at a great price.
That’s all for now. Back to work on Action Figures – Issue Five: Team-Ups, and maybe back to shoveling out my driveway. Again.
