Been getting a lot of messages about audiobooks so I wanted to clarify matters quickly.
Adventures on Brad Book 3 has been recorded and is awaiting approval from Audible. It should release any time now – within the week would be my guess, but it is up to Audible
The System Apocalypse Book 1 and 2 have been recorded and available right now on Audible. We are scheduled to record book 3 with Nick mid-May to release should be mid-to-late June 2018.
Book 4 is currently unscheduled, we’re working on getting something set up with Nick but he is extremely busy, so not sure when it’d get recorded. It might be VERY late due to how popular he is.
Alright, haven’t done this in a while, but I figured I’d do a quick writeup of LitRPG series I read and follow. Not in any order and not a complete list by ANY means. These are the ones that just popped into mind and read most recently:
Threadbare – A Golem Teddy Bear. The system itself is very reminiscent of Randidly Ghosthound, but the writing is miles better. It’s frankly amazing with a lightness to the writing that suits it’s protagonist. Such a great series and probably my favorite find in ages.
Dodge Tank – A fun ride. I like the character concept and his abilities. The plot wasn’t too surprising, though I’m definitely interested in where book 2 is going. Might turn out to be a great series, thus far, it’s okay.
War Gods Mantle – By the author of Viridian’s Gate (which I highly recommend too), this was an interesting book. It definitely is a ‘write to market’ book feeding into the harem / city building tropes that are so popular right now, but it’s well done. A good fun read.
Legacy of the Fallen – Book 3 of the Ascend Online series (or 2 with 1.5 in-between). The series is a bit weird with a bit of a weird shift with the mdiddle book randomly introducing new characters. Kind of like Malazan actually. But overall, interesting and fun. Definitely looking forward to the continuation of the series.
So… here’s the cover for the new UF / GameLit series. I’m not entirely sure it’d count as LitRPG, since the entire thing is weird. 🙂 I’d say more but then it’d ruin the fun. The book itself is on the shorter end (60k words or so).
That’s right, Book 3 is now released for the System Apocalypse. The Cost of Survival is out on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.
To celebrate the release, Life in the North (Book 1) will be going on sale for $0.99 starting on January 28 to 31st. I know, why not now? Because Amazon that’s why.
Got back the proofread document. Due to restrictions on Amazon’s end and a desire to test publishing days, I’ve got the book set to release on Oct 24, 2017.
That’s right, you’re getting the book a week early!
I’d like to write a short story or two that’s exclusive for our newsletter readers. On that note, what would you like to see? Options that come to mind are:
- An Asin (Tales on Brad) side story
- A Lara (System Apocalypse) side story
- A Roxley (System Apocalypse) side story
I considered and have actually decided against writing the background of what happened to the poor ambassador on Earth. There are a few reasons:
- I want to keep a little mystery in the universe
- I’m deathly afraid of a prequel mess-up. Literally anything I write will not be as good as what you had in mind. I know I was incredibly disappointed when the prequels came out because for me, the Clone Wars were this huge, amazing battle that happened hundreds of years ago. Then we got the prequels. And somehow, the magic was lost. While I’m not writing Star Wars, sometimes, the reader’s imaginations are better than anything we can write.
Leave a comment for what you’d like to see. I do not promise the stories would be written anytime soon… but they will be written.
If you haven’t seen it, look to the left and you’ll see a newsletter. At some point, I promise to release some exclusive short stories and content to newsletter subscribers. I’ve already written portions of some of my short-stories that need to be posted, so if you enjoyed any of those, do subscribe!
Secondly, did you know there is a Facebook page? It’s true. It’s at https://www.facebook.com/taowongauthor/
Editor I was working with hasn’t gotten the book to me yet. They are late but have now promised to get it to me by Tuesday. Assuming that is true, I should have an update by Friday I hope. I know there are a few things that I need to update /add anyway.
On another note, for the first time in months, I have nothing to write! Well, nothing on a deadline unless I start on Book 3 for either series. I think I’ll just be chilling for this weekend.
Unfortunately, due to some massive issues iwth the way things ar eshowing up; I’m having trouble posting. Hopefully this is fixed soon
