Cover Reveal! I just finished the cover for my story in the GameLit Expansion Pack Box Set! I’m especially excited about it because I made the whole cover myself. I’ve always loved book covers. I hoped to make one sometime, but I never had the right opportunity before. I think it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. 🙂
The box set has a cover already, of course. That’s what people will see on Amazon when they go to buy it. My book cover will be inside with my story. It’s the most amazing and artistic collection of interior art I’ve ever seen. One for each of the nine stories included, in addition to the one for the set.
Schism is on sale for just 99 cents! If you buy it soon, Amazon will send you a $1 kindle credit you can use to buy any other e-book. That’s better than FREE!
Also, if you act fast, I’m offering the first two people who buy it and message me on Facebook with a picture of the purchase a code to get the audiobook FREE, too. Here’s where you’d go to message me: James Wymore’s Facebook Page. Also, we should be friends if we aren’t already.
(Note: I think Amazon is running this promotion for anybody who buys a kindle e-book. You can only get it once, so it won’t work again if you got it already. Technically, you can get it for any book. So, if you have SCHISM already, you should still buy something. I recommend HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES by Andrew Buckley, which is also on sale for 99 cents today. If you post on Facebook and tag him, he’ll send you something else free, too. It’s like Christmas in October… which is like a movie, I think. Who loves you? I do.)
Long ago I entered this story into an online contest. It won. Since then I’ve had it available free to read on my page. Recently, however, Immortal Works featured it on the Flash Fiction Friday podcast. So you can listen to the whole thing in just 6 minutes. That’s not very long, considering it might make you rethink your whole life.
Actually, I have to confess, it’s been out for a while. The reader, Zach Bjorge, has an amazing voice talent. You won’t want to miss this story. It’s shorter than most books, so the audiobook is only about as long as a movie… a really great action movie!
On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun.
In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake’s airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
If you start a new Audible account, you can get it FREE! If you don’t want one of those, just buy the e-book and then you can get it via whispersync.
Now available: Windows into Hell Audiobook! It’s been a long road. The readers (Tonya Adolphson and Raphael Boivin) for the audiobook version were actually done soon after the book’s release, but due to editing and uploading issues, it took this long to get it on Audible. It’s worth it, though! You can get it for just $17.46 (or just use your Audible credits).
I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately. The one I’m currently in the middle of is Armageddon in Retrospect by Kurt Vonnegut, read by Rip Torn. I’ve had mixed feelings about various readers, but Rip Torn is obviously awesome. Maybe someday I’ll try to read something of my own (more than just with the Freestyle Gargoyles).
I have two more audiobooks in the works. Schism read by Zach Bjorge is already done, but has a few technical glitches holding it up. It should be available next. Also, I’m in contracting for Theocracide to be read by Raphael Boivin through FJP. After that I plan to get Salvation out on audio. So it’s happening. 🙂
I couldn’t be more pleased with how well Windows into Hellhas been doing in Audiobook. First day out and it hit #53 on two Amazon charts. It’s dropped a little, but it’s still in the top 100 for both categories as I write this. So, get it while it’s hot!
