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.

Again, An Author Update

Well, it’s late September, 2016. Time for another author update, because I’ve got nothing better to do. I’m still editing my novel, The Citadel, and making progress. I’ve also finally decided to go ahead with my plans for my novella, Prism. I’ve read it over several times and I finally think it is ready to go. I have a Cover Reveal for Prism coming up on November 16th for which I will give more information later on. I still haven’t heard anything about my short story, but that’s okay; it takes time to get these things reviewed. When you’re a writer, any project will require quite a bit of time spent waiting for a reply after submission. Well, at least, most of the time. There have been places that have gotten back to me within a week, but those are usually rejections anyway.

My writers’ club is now defunct, which, I suppose, is bad news, but in my opinion, it was getting a little too large and unwieldy anyway. Everyone else wanted to increase the size of the group, and I think I would have preferred a smaller group. But it served its purpose; it boosted my confidence in my writing: all the people there—each one a writer—liked my stuff and none of them was a relative or friend who could be biased.

Anyhoo, that’s all I wanted to say.

Just Another Author Update

Well, it’s August, 2016 and once again I find that I have little to write about for this blog. In fact, I haven’t made a substantial post on this blog for quite some time. So, with nothing better to do, I’m going to give another author update. The last few days have been difficult; I’ve been dealing with mental illness/antichrist issues. Which means I’ve done very little in terms of writing and editing this week. But that’s okay. I’ll get to it eventually.

As of now, The Citadel (Book III) is currently entering its third draft. I suspect it will take at least another year to get it in its final form. I also have a novella, Prism, which was all set to go, but then I submitted parts of it for critiquing to my writers’ group. It consists of basically four chapters. After rereading it, I’ve decided that Chapters I and II are kind of slow. Although the characters and world are unique, I’m feeling I have to do something to those Chapters, especially chapter two. So, I haven’t released it yet.

I’ve also got a really cool short story that is doing the rounds, hoping to be accepted by an ezine. Plus, a second short story—also cool, in my opinion—that has completed several edits and is almost ready for submission.

Anyway, that’s where I stand at the moment.
