It’s been a long time coming. I’ve waylaid you with excuses; I’ve bombarded you with reassurances. Well, today, I can face you head on and say with pride: NANO Archive 02: The War for Uriel is officially releasing! The official release date for the ebook version of NANO Archive 02 will be August 1st, 2015. All the files are up on Amazon, and all the files have been properly reviewed.
To celebrate the launch of Archive 02, I will be having a special sale five days leading up to Archive 02’s release! Amazon gives me exactly five free-book-promotion days a term, so I will be using those days to make the ebook version of NANO Archive 01: The City of Fire free! If you never got a chance to read Archive 01, or even if you just know someone who hasn’t, be sure to check out the sale starting July 28th! Spread the word, share with your friends, shout it from the mountain tops!… Or just post it on your social media. That works too.
In addition to the free-days of Archive 01, you can preorder a copy of Archive 02 at Amazon! I’ll attach a link below!
Shortly following Archive 02’s ebook release, the paperback version of the novel will go live on createspace and amazon. if you’re the type that just has to have that physical, beautiful, dead tree sitting in your hands… just be patient a couple of days after August 1st!
For those of you that actually navigate around on my site and check things out, I’ll also be updating the NANO Archive 02 page on my sidebar over there with an excerpt from the book and a direct link to the page once it goes live!
Releasing Archive 01 was huge for me. All my life (Read: since around middle school) I’ve wanted to be a writer. When I finally sat down, wrote, and finished the NANO series, it was a huge milestone for me. It wasn’t the kind of milestone that represented an achievement unlocked, nor was it the kind of milestone that lifted some invisible burden off my shoulders. It wasn’t the kind of thing where I sat back and said “I did it…” at least not for more than a few days.
No, releasing Archive 01 was all about the first step down a path, not reaching the end of one. I want to be a writer; it’s what I want to do with my life. It’s the path I want to keep walking forever. Archive 01 was the first steps down that path. With Archive 02, that feeling has completely set in.
It represents the realization that finishing NANO wasn’t the end; it was only the beginning.
Thank you so much for your continued support, and please continue to support me as I take one step at a time down this lifelong path.
