Day after tomorrow!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 29, 2012, 9:43 AM


No, really, I'm not flipping out. Why do you ask? OMG! I can't contain my excitement!  :happybounce: :squee: :hooray: Woohooooo! La la la la  :eager: by darkmoon3636

Yes, that's right. Day after tomorrow is Halloween, but it's also my release date. The Wailing will be out via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. I'm so not flipping out. (Except that I totally am.) 

With Nazi bombs falling from the sky and fires consuming London, reluctant immortal Daniel Leland finds himself in an uncomfortable position. As a halfhearted employee of the British government, blackmailed into submission, he is forced to use his peculiar talent for murder in the service of the Crown. But as the assignments become impossibly challenging, the limits of that talent are tested. The Luftwaffe is not the most explosive thing to menace Great Britain, and even dead things can die again. There is more at stake than the questionable life of a lone agent, more at stake than Daniel Leland would care to admit.


Contest Reminder



Select a piece from anywhere in my Books of Lost Knowledge gallery (or any of the subgalleries) and create a derivative work. This can be an illustration, a character sketch, a poem, a short fiction, or whatever else you want to create. (Lol, cosplay?)
This requires no extensive familiarity with the characters or scenarios. As long as I can see a clear connection, it's valid.

Submit your entry as a deviation with a link to this journal included in the artists' comments and send me a note with the link to your deviation.

To summarise: Yes, this is a draw-my-characters contest. Only without the "draw" stipulation. Or honestly, even the "my characters" stipulation. I'd love to see someone else's OC reacting to one of mine.

Multiple entries are allowed.

To clarify, the deadline is 15 December 2012. Any submission received after midnight, EST, will be featured in my journal but will not be eligible to win.

First Place receives a three-month DA Premium Membership, an individual feature in my journal and an autographed print copy of The Wailing. (Disclaimer: while I will ship overseas, you have to live somewhere that can receive post from the United States.)

Second Place receives one-month DA Premium Membership and an individual feature in my journal.

All Submissions will be featured in my journal and may be linked on my blog. (If you don't want yours appearing on my blog, just tell me in your note.)

You didn't mention the price. If you want me to put that in or any other information, like a short bio, feel free to let me know. Also, if there's a photo of the cover that I can copy/paste.

Well, I congratulate you very much!! I'm glad that you get to do what you love for a living.

If I had any money, I'd buy your book. Frankly, I'm broke... ^^;


Once I get money, I'm buying it!!

xD No worries. I'm pretty broke, too. (I wish it was a living, but right now, it's not even gas money. I'm working on that.)

That's very true, and I still can't get over the fact that someone out there was willing to spend hard-earned money on the goofy stuff I write. .__.
It makes me happy.
