This is the final week to pre-order my new short story collection Moya. You’ll have until Friday at midnight to place your order and get a FREE GIFT. I always feel hokey capitalizing the deals or whatever when I write a promotional post, but I wanted to draw attention to the fact that if you do the pre-order of Moya, you’ll be getting a free gift included with your book. It could be artwork. It could be another book. It could be both.
I normally don’t do a pre-order option for my short story collections, but I will have very, very limited copies for at least the next three or four months. Reserving your book now helps me determine how many of these copies I can put in certain bookstores or bring to events. It is tremendously helpful to me as a writer and business owner. I know it is hard to shell out money for a product that won’t be released for a little while, so I wanted to sweeten the deal for my awesome readers and include a free gift.
If you have no idea what Moya is about, well here is the description:
A knight becomes mutinous after a 100 days of dragon fire. A combat vet prefers the void of war to home and peace. An inhuman creature is more than capable of mercy in a haunted cathedral. A lizard and monster start a friendship in the shadow of arrows. A young woman is denied the chance to be herself. Two techs floating in space can’t remember their login information. Rats have feelings too, as this kingdom found out. Goblins aren’t as evil as the ones that hunt them. A long battle in deep space makes nightmares live everywhere. A demonic and hungry forest with a slight sense of kindness. A lonely factory would rather have purpose than nothing. A weapon survives longer than the man wielding it. A monster is going to become a father, and watches a human with the same predicament.
I am very proud of my collection of short stories. Some of these stories are brand new, well others I had ideas for back in high school. Some pay homage to a variety of my gaming influences, including Chrono Trigger and Star Ocean. Others were based on my direct experiences as a father. Some are very specific to social commentary. Overall, I’m tremendously happy with these tales, and I’m excited to add them to the modern vacuum of storytelling.
