Hello all you wonderful people! Today, a few of the Steps of Power characters and I are going to share some super awesome stuff: an update to the Heroes or Thieves cover and three amazing Kickstarter Projects you seriously need to get into! Also, you can find the NEW Heroes or Thieves RAW Prologue and RAW Chapter One (old Prologue) HERE. AREN'T YOU EXCITED?! ;D
Me: So, as you know, I haven't finished the cover for Heroes or Thieves yet--the text side--because I have been pretty certain I'm going to hire someone to do the text this time around. I just can't get it to look stunning with my dismal skills.
Zauviir: It looked like a slaughter. And not the good kind of slaughter. More like the half-assed, amateur-type of slaughter.
Me: ...Ooooookkkkk... However, the friend who did this amazing cover has made a small but stunning update to create a "fiercer" face for our protagonist.
Also keeps those stunning Darivalian chiseled features. (winks at the ladies*)
Darcarus: (winks at the men*)
Me: This is the new cover:
And this is a close up to the change:
Jikun: Good gods, do I really look that good? No wonder I cannot keep the women off of me.
Sellemar: You pay them. They're called whores.
Me: Next, he will be working on the Character Art you voted for! :D How exciting!
SERIOUSLY I AM SO EXCITED PEOPLE.
Ishmael: Someone seriously better calm her down before she starts doing that weird giggling-squealing-shaking thing. Creeps the Ramul right out of me.
First for all of you lovers of stunning music: I am super excited about this project. This is a musical project featuring a woman whose voice literally made my grandfather cry when he heard her sing Ave Maria. He said, and I quote, "That is the most beautiful voice I have ever heard." This woman has more talent than a blind man juggling flaming knife-batons while balancing on a ball greased with whale fat. And now there are two of them.
I image it looks something like this. Only on fire.
So seriously, you have to check them out! HERE is a song they did. If you go to 2:14 you can hear them singing together. HERE is their project (and you can hear more of their singing in the background)! Support their dream. DO IT.
Now for all of my gamers out there! This is an amazing looking game! I am totally into Pandemic right now-- a co-operative style board game, so when I saw this project, I basically did a jig.
Ishmael: She did. And we all barely survived the sight.
This is a co-operative or competitive clue-solving game (You get to feel like Sherlock Holmes and who doesn't want to feel like him?!) You don't have to be a fan of HP Lovecraft (I am not), you just have to like totally amazingness. Which this is.
I think this review says it all:
Seriously. Says it all.
You can find the game HERE. Quick and back it before it's too late and you get extra cases to solve!! :O
And last but not least by any means: a project for all those YA fantasy readers out there! ESPECIALLY for those of you who need to recover after Kings or Pawns' ending. ;) Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus is a light-hearted work that is just as fun as it is entertaining! AND you can share this with your kids!
Or you could just hog it to yourself.
This author is full of wit, snark, and talent! While many of you know I don't often read YA literature, my editor has actually read this work and vouches for its greatness: if you like snark, wit, witches, wizards, and talking cats, you are going to be totally sold. YES. THERE IS A TALKING CAT PEOPLE. SO GO GET IT RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.
