I dropped 100K places on Amazon's best seller list over night!

Posted on
Wahay, I just dropped over 100.000 places on the amazon best seller list! From 169.000 to 276.000 over night.
It's tough at the bottom.
Please help me get back into the 100.000's! I only need to sell one or two copies to come back into the lime light:-)

Updated the cover

Posted on
I updated the cover of Under a Dark Sky, because the previous one had a placeholder image which I graciously stole from the Internet. The new one has an image which is bought and paid for, so this is the wonderful, new, official cover of Under a Dark Sky!
In a day or two the new cover should have updated on the online bookstores as well, so if you bought the old version you can either keep that as a special edition (might become valuable if I don't get sued by the creator of the image), or re-download the book to get the new official cover.

Under a Dark Sky is now available to buy online!

I just published my novel on Smashwords!
Head over there to read all about it and read the first 20% for free. It's available in all the major eBook formats, so you should be able to find a version that works on your reader of choice.

Smashwords is a publishing service that not only sells your eBook, but they also distribute it to most of the major eBook retailers world wide. Withing 12 hours it should be available on Amazon and in about a week you should see Under a Dark Sky available on all the major eBook sites.
Please help me spread the word!

PS: The first one who buys a copy gets a free beer :-)

UPDATE: Under a Dark Sky is now available to purchase on Amazon as well.

New site design (again)

Posted on
Between waiting for response from an agent or a publisher and writing the sequel to Under a Dark Sky, I've taken some time to redesign the website again. I hope you like it!

An agent response!

Posted on
Many weeks ago I sent the manuscript for Under a Dark Sky to a bunch of publishers and literary agents, and I just received a reply from an agent.
...I enjoyed what I read and thought it had some obvious strengths. Unfortunately, however, we have decided that it's not quite what we're looking for at the moment...— Zeno Agency

Not the worst of reviews! There is still hope.

Working on the book trailer for Under a Winter Sun

Posted on
While I'm waiting to hear from a publisher or an agent, I'm taking a break from writing Under a Winter Sun, the sequel to Under a Dark Sky, to create another animated trailer. This time I'm going to do multiple cuts and my aim is to go for something more Hollywoodesque than the trailer for Under a Dark Sky.
We'll see where it ends up.

I've sent the manuscript to some agents

Posted on
I just sent the manuscript for Under a Dark Sky to five different agents and one more publisher.
Keep your fingers crossed that someone likes it!

Writing again!

Posted on
I've started work on the sequel to Under a Dark Sky, currently titled Under a Winter Sun.
This time we will get to see more of Wagner's home world Nifelheim and there will be lots of mystery, gunplay and some new revelations about the Hope system.

The book trailer is here!

Posted on
I've finally completed the book trailer for Under a Dark Sky!
It's taken much longer than I ever imagined to get it ready, and it's far from perfect, but I figured if I don't release it now, it will never be ready :-)
There might be a few updates to it in the future, but I think it's now pretty close to the vision I had when I set out.
It wouldn't be half as nice without the great music, specifically composed for the trailer by James A. Semple, so please check out his other brilliant music.
Make sure to set the quality to 1080p, hook up your surround system and hit the full screen button for maximum enjoyment :-)
Even J.J. Abrams would be proud of those lens flares!

I'm now an official reject!

Posted on
Yay! I just got my first official rejection letter!
I always knew I was a great, misunderstood artist, and now I've got the documentation to prove it.
