"Our friends, our families, nay this whole wretched world omits our very existence, as if we have been long dead and gone. To them we are vile and tainted, not worthy of remembrance. And the dead? They refuse to welcome us into their frigid embrace simply because it is not yet our time. What are we then, if neither the living nor the dead will pay us heed?"
Weeks have passed since the catastrophe on the airship and the disappearance of Cierra Pensblood. However, the Orange Crows have had no time to ponder her whereabouts. They have been charged by the benevolent Queen Witch to aid in the protection of an experimental new brew that may give witch-kin a decisive edge in the war against the voracious horrors known as Fairies.
As leader of the Orange Crows, Natalie Batsgrave is torn between duty and personal desire. Is it worth risking the security of a brew that could save thousands in exchange for a slim chance of finding Cierra....a mere Forsaken?"
THIS IS IT!!! ORANGE CROWS VOLUME 2 HAS A RELEASE DATE! IT WILL BE RELEASED OCTOBER 28, 2013!!!
Just in time for you to cozy up next to your favorite pumpkin and immerse yourself in the halloween atmosphere! Today I am opening pre-orders! They will start this week and run until September 15th, 2013.
Due to requests to have more time for the pre-order, I am extending the date from the 6th to the 15th of September. Unfortunately I can't extend any farther past this or it will conflict with the printing. Remember pre-ordering is your best chance to get a copy of the first print run of volume 2.
What started out as a 160 page book has now turned into a 216 page monster! Thanks to your patience and support, I have been able to expand the content for the second volume, so you are getting more bang for your buck!
Your pre-order will come with a limited edition signed 5x7 art card! This signed card will be offered in limited quantity and only to those who pre-order. After that, they won't be available anywhere. It's a gift for the early adopters :) When the book releases in October it will cost $11.95, but those who pre-order will recieve a 10% discount (which has already been applied on the order page).
You can pre-order your copy here: Pre-order store
As I stated before, the best and fastest way to get a copy of volume 2 will be to pre-order a copy. I am self publishing this time, which means I cannot print 10,000 copies and hope for the best. I can only print according to the demand. The limited pre-order window is because I need to let the printers know how many copies of the book I need printed. So your pre-order helps decide if I get 5 copies or 500 copies. If I run out of the first print run of the book, then I'll be able to print a second run. But the amount of time that would take is unknown.
Remember this won't be available in stores. It's coming straight from yours truly. If you wait around for the release, you may miss out on a chance to get your copy.
TL;DR If you want to secure a copy of volume 2 order it NOW!!! :)
And for the Kickstarters and those who I spoke to about a pre-order at past conventions, I will be sending a separate e-mail to you about the details!!
Pre-orders will also be available at the Saboten Convention this weekend. Look forward to seeing some of you there!
Thank you everyone for your support! I couldn't have made it this far without you all believing in me.
