Resounding Echo – Excerpt (Chapter 11)

Alassane characterAlassane was in every way a rather strange individual. She had learned that underneath the sarcastic attitude… well, there was more sarcasm and more than a few annoying habits. But underneath all that, he was rather intelligent. He knew a lot about a wide range of subjects and seemed to be able to find a solution to most problems.

On the other hand, when it came to social interaction, he had about as much common sense as a cactus.

Another Crazy Time at SVScon

Artist Alley SVScon BooksAnother great convention has come and gone and I sit here, completely exhausted, but with a good feeling in my stomach!

This was my second year attending the danish J-pop convention SVScon as an author (Read about last year here). Last year was a great success, with a lot of interest in my debut novel, Resounding Echo, so I was really excited to be there again this year. Even more so because this was the first time the sequel, Silent Sound, was available for purchase.

GASP!

Yes, I said it. The guests at SVScon were the first people able to get their hands on a copy of Silent Sound. It’s finally ready and I enjoyed showing off the brand new paperbacks at my stand in the Artist Alley.

But fear not, Silent Sound will be ready for purchase as both ebook and paperback at Amazon within the month, and as soon as possible as an ebook at every other major retailer. If the stars are with me, it might even be next week!

But let’s get back on track…

This year I could be found at my table both friday and saturday. It’s always fun to be at a J-pop convention. ‘Cause really, who wants to talk to some guy in jeans and a t-shirt, when you can talk to a completely masked person splattered in blood?

…Okay, I admit a couple of those guys terrified me. But really, it’s so much fun to see all the people in costumes. And SVScon, despite being a J-pop convention, has a very wide range. Instead of just focusing on japanese comics and music, there’s a lot of people dressed up as characters from western movies, comics and games.

There was almost an entire Avengers-team (I don’t think anyone invited Bruce Banner, though… Poor green guy), and Batman and Robin ran into the Joker and Harley Quinn as well. There was also a couple of zombies from Left 4 Dead.

What really terrified me, though, was a masked guy who looked like some mutated horror version of Santa Claus. I have NO idea which character he was supposed to be, but he was way more creepy than someone dressed in what looked like a full-body santa hat should possibly be.

Oh, and did I mention that the Grim Reaper stopped by?

Sigh… How come I can never go anywhere without it turning completely insane?

Read an E-Book Week on Smashwords!

Read an E-book Week

I know I’m a bit late in announcing this, but I wanted to tell everyone that I’m participating in Smashwords’ ‘Read an E-Book Week’!

The event runs from 3-9. March, and it’s an amazing chance to discover new writers at bargain prices. As a treat to people who follows this blog, as well as those following me on Facebook and Twitter, both Huntress and Resounding Echo will be free during this week.

If you have yet to pick up one of those titles, it’s the perfect chance to do it before Silent Sound gets released in late March or early April!

I plan on spending ‘Read an E-Book Week’ discovering a lot of great new writers, and I hope all of you will do the same! 

Why are you still reading this? Get going!

Getting Ready to Invade SVScon(Again)

Box of BooksOnce again, I can tell you that I’m going to be at this year’s SVScon in Herning, Denmark! This year, it will be held over the weekend 3.-5. May 2013.

I had an amazing time last year when I had a booth at their Artist Alley-area, and I’m very excited to say that I can be found there both Friday and Saturday this year. I will also come better prepared this time!

Last year, the huge interest in my books took me by surprise and I ended up having sold out of my paper copies long before my time was up. This time, I have ordered home three times as many copies and I dare you to make me run out!

I’m also pleased to say that Silent Sound is almost done and will be ready before May, which means that I will be selling it in print for the first time at this convention. I am so excited about seeing it in print beside Resounding Echo that it’s nearly making me feel sick!

Like last year, I will also be selling posters and I have already ordered prints of my 5 favorite artworks. I would love to hear if you think there’s one I just HAVE to be selling as well. Feel free to look through the artwork page: The Angel’s Voice Series Artwork

My trusty sidekick Hans Christian, also known as Qulr on DeviantART(Last year going by the name Mitizaki), will also be joining me again. If you didn’t know, he is the one who took ZKROX’s amazing artwork and turned it into covers for Resounding Echo and Silent Sound.

If you visit my booth, you will also get a voucher for a free ebook copy of Huntress!

Once again, I will love to hear your opinions on poster choices, or any other ideas to what I should bring to SVScon (Even if you can’t make it to the convention yourself). And I really hope to see just as many amazing people as I did last year!

Rock on!
