The song has nothing to do with this. It simply started up on Pandora when I began writing and I really like it.
Now, I’ve mentioned a few times that I wanted to do an ‘Excerpt Week’, but I was scared of setting of the ‘Spoiler’ fight again. This sentiment seems to be what gets comments instead of any excerpt suggestions. So, I’ve come up with this plan and figured I’d warn people who are terrified of even tiny teasers:
- Last Week in May– Hero Debut Excerpts. From Nyx and Luke’s first meeting to the great debut of Fritz and Bessaria. This week will end with the first appearance of the 5th Champion.
- Last Week in June– Villain Debut Excerpts. From the Lich and Hellfire Elf to Trinity and maybe a few monsters. I might even slip in the infamous ‘Luke & the Spurge’ scene from Prodigy of Rainbow Tower. This will end with an excerpt of the ‘Big Baddie’.
- Last Week in July– Favorite action scenes. From Fizzle in a special book 6 fight to Timoran Vs General Vile, this will hopefully lead into the action-packed debut of The Compass Key. This will end with the blog debut of ‘Bob’ and show him in one of his most heinous scenes.
Now, here’s the problem. I can’t promote future books without revealing a few things about the prior books. I tried with Book 3 and it was tough and I couldn’t do it at all with Book 4. I leave some secrets in the pages, but central characters like ‘Bob’, ‘Big Baddie’, and the 5th Champion are nearly impossible to hide when promoting a book. They can be in the blurb that I hope to get feedback on along with other incidents. So, reveals are becoming an occupational hazard if I want to continue. All I can say to those scared about knowing too much and continue reading my blog:
“It isn’t the destination, but the journey. Even if you know an event will happen, you don’t know everything about it. Might be more to things than you realize.”
Add on: I’ll ask again because I’m big on audience participation: Any requests for specific character debuts or fight scenes?
