The Book Blast for Prism by Matthew D. Ryan

mbb_tourbanner_prism_releaseday

Prism is here. Welcome to the Book Blast. Prism is a short, stand-alone novella totally unrelated to my series From the Ashes of RuinI took a break from that series to keep my creative juices flowing.

 

This Book Blast is being hosted by GoddessFish. Throughout the day today, we will be visiting a large number of blogs on the web, each of which will share some information about the book such as excerpts and blurbs. We will respond to comments and inquiries on each of the sites and engage in discussions about various aspects of the book.

 

As of today, Prism is available for free download at Smashwords. I must make a note and apologize to both my commenters and hosts: I intended to have it up and available for free at both Barnes and Noble, as well as Amazon. Unfortunately, due to the holiday season, I didn’t get it uploaded on Smashwords and Amazon until yesterday. As a result, as of this moment, it is not listed on Barnes and Noble and it costs $0.99 on Amazon. Smashwords distributes to B&N, so it should be listed for free there some time during the next few days. As for Amazon … I sent them an email last night, not sure I used the correct page, though. I will continue trying. Eventually, the price match feature at Amazon should kick in and list it as free there, as well. It is my intention to keep it free for at least several months. Eventually, I will start charging a buck or two. So, if you want it free, get it sooner, rather than later. And remember—at least for now—it is only available for free at Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/693400.

 

 

The blogs participating in this Book Blast are listed below. Just click on a link to visit any one of the sites; you’ll see the cover and be able to comment. I’ll be awarding a $15 Amazon Gift Card to one randomly selected commenter on the tour (that is, a commenter on one of the participating host sites, NOT atoasttodragons). I’ll also be awarding a $10 Amazon Gift Card to one randomly selected blog host.

Holiday Deals for my series “From the Ashes of Ruin.”

Hi All,

Just a note to let everyone know: from now until January 7th, 2017, in celebration of the holidays–all of them, but especially Christmas–I’m offering special holidays deals on the ebook novels in my fantasy series, “From the Ashes of Ruin,” at Smashwords. “Drasmyr,” of course, will remain free. “The Children of Lubrochius” will be available for $0.99 if you provide the code: ZH97C. “The Sceptre of Morgulan” will be available for $0.99 if you provide the code: PT26G. That’s a savings of $6.00. Six dollars! That’s a price of about $2 for nearly 300, 000 words of pure fantasy fun, plus a 120k word prequel. Can’t beat that! Anyway, here’s the fancy graphic:

Wrapping Up The Cover Reveal Of Prism

All right, it’s been several days since my Cover Reveal Tour for my novella, “Prism,” ended. The winner of the comment contest was Gabrielly. Last name is, of course, being withheld for privacy reasons. Congratulations Gabrielly. And thank you to all the other commenters and especially the hosts for each site (and Goddess Fish–it wouldn’t have been possible without them). Thanks again. “Prism” is due to be released January 2nd, 2017–which is sooner than one might think. Here is the cover:

Interview and Promotion on Megan Cashman’s Site

I have a guest spot on a fellow writer’s blog today. The writer’s name is Megan Cashman. We met (on-line, that is—we’ve never met in person) a couple years back on one of my previous blog tours. Anyway, she offered to do a promotion for me when I released my latest book, The Sceptre of Morgulan, back in November 2015. Unfortunately, at the time I lost the email amidst the chaos of events and never replied. When I finally discovered my mistake—about a month ago—I dropped her a line to apologize and she offered again. Which is way cool of her. Anyway, she’s agreed to promote my books on her site. The promotion should last one week or so. The books in question include my series From the Ashes of Ruin. The series starts with the prequel, Drasmyr, continues with The Children of Lubrochius and then The Sceptre of Morgulan. My series is primarily a fantasy story, but it does have strong horror elements running through it. Specifically, it features a gothic-style vampire much more in the line of Bram Stoker’s Dracula than Stephanie Meyers Twilight. My vampire is evil and diabolical. You wouldn’t want to date him. There are also a number of demons scattered throughout the series, so there is that dark element as well.

Anyway, you can find my promotion on Megan Cashman’s site here: http://wp.me/p2q6dm-lM

Please go check it out and lend her your support. You’ll also be able to find the coupon codes on the bottom of the page for a promotion running simultaneously on Smashwords. If you use both codes, you’ll save six dollars. SIX DOLLARS! WOO HOO! (And spend only $2) Anyway, check it out and leave a comment.

Author Update

Well, it’s May, 2016. I have nothing else to write about tonight, so I figured I would do an author update to fill people in regarding my current writerly adventures. I’ve joined a Writer’s Group, which is cool. I’ve been itching to do so for several years, now; I just was having difficulty finding one. But no worries, I found one that meets at the local library. Actually, I wasn’t the one to find them: One of my associates at the Food Shelf found the ad in the newspaper and cut it out for me. Woo hoo! Thank you, Dorothy!

Anyway, I was in a big slump for almost three months, maybe even longer. But the Writer’s Club rescued me from the doldrums. They brought a successful published author in to give a talk and that talk got me psyched for writing again. I’ve churned out, oh, I don’t know, seven chapters in about five weeks or so. Very productive. I think I have maybe one or two chapters left in total and then I will have finished the rough draft of Book III of From the Ashes of Ruin. Also, I’m still trying to publish a few short stories. Oh, and I have a novella in the works which I shall shortly release and give away for free. It has nothing to do with my current series, but it’s a cool tale nonetheless. It was kind of an escape from the series; it let me relax my brain and chew on something different for a while. (At the time of posting, I have officially completed the rough draft of From the Ashes of Ruin.)

Anyway, that’s the news!
