Revelation Game – New Cover & Totally Free

In September of 2013 I released a short novella (about 15,000 words) called Revelation Game.

It was one of those stories that snuck up on me and refused to go away until it was written.

Since then, it’s been available exclusively on Amazon.

Until Today!

As of today, Revelation Game is 100% free for all time. That’s right, no sale, no time limit, it’s FREE!

To be honest, I decided to do this because a) it’s not selling and b) I like it and want it in the hands of more readers.

So you officially have nothing to lose. You can download the Epub directly from my site, or head over to Smashwords and grab whatever format you want.

And to celebrate the change, Revelation Game is sporting a swanky new cover. Hope you all check it out and enjoy!

Revelation Game Free Now Until September 25th

Revelation Game CoverMy novella Revelation Game is free on Amazon starting today and until September 25th. After that it reverts back to its normal price of $0.99.

If you grab it for free, I’d love to hear what you thought. Post your reviews to Amazon, Goodreads, or drop me an email.

I wrote a new book blurb for it, one that gives a better idea of the story;

Tyler Drake uses video games as an escape. His latest obsession is the MMORPG Revelations, that lets players choose the side of Heaven or Hell in a war for the hearts and souls of humanity.

When events from the game appear to bleed into the real world, Tyler begins to question his gameplay decisions.

Because if the game is real, he has committed terrible evil.

And Hell owns his soul.

Hope you get a chance to pick it up and that you enjoy!

All the best,

JR

Now off to work on book three of The Bleeding Worlds.

Revelation Game – Update & Cover

Hey everyone.

So my new novella, due out September 17th, has just returned to my hands from Beta/Edits. A little polishing needed, but not too shabby. I really did have fun with this and I’m looking forward to putting it out to the world and seeing how it does. It’s very different from The Bleeding Worlds, which has me both excited and very nervous.

Speaking of The Bleeding Worlds, now that this novella is nearly out of my system, I have started work on Book Three! It even has a title. Well, I suppose it could change, but it’s stayed strong and definite in my mind for a few months now. So, just to put it out there, book three of The Bleeding Worlds will be called Resonance. The current plan is to focus exclusively on it until release day. When will that be? Well, I’d love to give a definite date, and be able to stick to it, but I’m not sure right now. I’ll have to see how the writing goes. My hope is to have it out in the first few months of 2014. There will be far more updates as the writing progresses.

Finally, just to spice up this post, here’s the cover for my novella, Revelation Game.

I hope you’ll give it a chance when it releases on September 17th. For the foreseeable future, it will be an Amazon exclusive and only available in eBook format.

All the best,

Something Different Coming in September

Sometimes an idea nags your noodle so much, you have to work it out before moving on to something else.

Thanks to one such idea, I’ve finished a first draft on a novella.

Yeah, it kind of surprised me too. I thought I was just sitting down to jot some points for a future story, and found myself 15,000 words later being quite content with what I’d created.

It’s called Revelation Game and will be released on September 17th. I’m not ready to drop a synopsis quite yet, but let’s say this was born out of a love for the recent anime Sword Art Online and the classic .(dot)Hack.

Because it’s a shorter work, it’ll be an Amazon exclusive and be priced at $0.99.

It’s exciting for me, because it’s written in first person in the active tense. I’ve only ever written a short story this way before, and it was interesting to stretch it to a longer work. I’m not sure if I’m sold enough on it to write a whole novel that way, but I enjoyed it for a change.

And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten Bleeding Worlds Three. In fact, my wife said to me just yesterday that she wants me to get moving so she can read it.

I’ll post more when I’ve ironed out a few more drafts and written an official blurb.

That’s it for today. I’m seriously thinking of what I can start posting on this site to make it fun and interesting. I don’t want to be one of those Indie Authors that has nothing but writing advice, especially when I feel like I’m still learning and improving myself.

Anywho, until I find that next fun topic, all the best.
