Still Kicking

Kicking-Mule-Cast-Iron-Mechanical-Bank

I’ll be the first to admit that 2017 was not a terribly productive year when it came to writing. While progress was made, it was far less than I had hoped. As is true in many aspects of life, the efforts which get the most enthusiastic response are the ones we focus on. It’s in my nature to address the things for which people are cheering me on, and I didn’t hear much from readers this year. So, I focused on other projects.

But with that in mind, I would like to do my own cheering for several friends and collaborators who have, or will soon be having, active Kickstarters for their work.

  • Artist Steve Crompton and “The Fellowship of the Troll” will be issuing a marvelous special edition of the Elven Lords solo adventure. Their Kickstarter has already reached its goal, but there are still rewards available if you love fantasy rpg products. Check out Elven Lords Revisited: Make 100 Solo Adventure.
  • Talk of the Tavern, a long-running and outrageous show now airing on Twitch, will be mounting a Kickstarter to fund upgraded broadcasting equipment. I am assisting them with their campaign and you will hear more about it very soon. In the meantime, check out their show which airs live Monday nights at 8 PM EST.
  • Finally, here’s where I need YOUR input. Is there anything you would like me to start a funding campaign for? Is there a specific series book you’d help me get support for? Have you ever wanted a limited edition enamel pin for a favorite character of mine? Would you help me fund broadcasting improvements for my Twitch channel? I’m really open to many projects, but as I indicated at the beginning of this post, I need to hear that there is true interest.

Drop me a line in the comments, via Twitter @wynnmercere, or on my Facebook page. I’ll be waiting.

Halloween BOO-K Sale

Halloween is next week and that got me thinking about all the spooky things in my recent books. Because the day when we celebrate goblins and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night is nearly upon us, I decided to share some of the scary things you will encounter in three of my titles – and offer you special deals on them all.

Let’s start with Mother of Ghosts. Obviously, this title is all about the supernatural. The story kicks off with a ghostly murder and travels a twisted road of haunts and madness. To help you on your journey into horror, here’s a coupon code to save yourself $2 on the paperback edition when you order from createspace: 2W69J489

Looking for friendlier phantoms? Utopea has that covered. What’s more, it has spells, mysterious creatures, people in costume and a vintage setting that evokes all the sights and sounds we associate with an Americana Halloween. There’s no trick with this treat, a $3 off coupon when you order from createspace: ZFS646CX

Halloween isn’t only about ghosts. How about some cats and witches? City of the Gods: Guardian has starring roles for the cat goddesses of Egyptos and Circe, the most evil sorceress in the Greek realm. And the scares don’t stop there; you’ll visit the Underworld and join D’Molay in his battles with the spirits of the dead and the hungry beasts of the depths. You can buy Guardian and other City of the Gods titles at this link.

I wasn’t able to fight my way past a vigilant “Amazon” to offer you a coupon deal, but if you buy any City of the Gods book before the end of October and leave a review at Amazon.com before the end of November, I will send you a special bonus surprise for Christmas. Let me know by commenting to this post or tweeting @wynnmercere that you’ve read and reviewed and I’ll contact you about receiving your gift.

That’s all I have for your treat bag this month. I’ll be back in November to offer you something for your Thanksgiving table.

The Grand Pyramid of Egyptos

In the spirit of kicking off summer fun, I created a short text adventure set in the City of the Gods. You can play it online for free by following this link to textadventures.co.uk.

The game serves as brand new background content for City of the Gods Universe readers as well as an introduction to the City for people unfamiliar with the books. Please share the game link widely so that we can grow our fan base. The game is totally free, and can be played on any platform without installing any apps or software.
