Take a gander at the new cover for book 3 in the Me Three series, Og-Grim-Dog and The War of The Dead.
This episode in Og-Grim-Dog’s story combines fantasy with horror as the undead arrive in Gal’azu. I think Andrey’s artwork nicely depicts the struggle as Og-Grim-Dog, Assata and Borte fight off the creatures! The back cover reveals that Raya and Sandon are also in the fight!
No surprises then that this is a darker tale than the first two books in the series, with the silly humour present but taking a bit of a back seat. Maybe that was inevitable since this was written at the height of lockdown.
The ebook will be released on 18th September, while the paperback should come not much later.
The Amazon set up is all done now. The paperback of Og-Grim-Dog is for sale already and the eBook is on pre-order in all stores, with a release date of 15th June.
The book is also entered in the SPFBO6 competition, which is an exciting addition. I’m looking forward to meeting other authors and finding great indie reads through that.
Reviews from my ARC readers are also mostly in now, with a lot of positive responses. There are already 9 reviews of the book up on Goodreads, a great way for potential readers to get a feel for what the book is like.
As for the rest of the series, my beta-readers have had a look at the second book in the series, Og-Grim-Dog and the Dark Lord. That will get a final edit over the next few days. I have asked Andrey, the same artist who did the first cover, to work on the cover for book two. We have agreed on a design and I think it’s going to look awesome! Meanwhile, I have begun to write book 3 of the series, Og-Grim-Dog and The War of The Dead.
So in other words, it’s getting pretty busy right now!
In these strange times, my daily schedule is relatively untouched, though I do now have my children at home with me as the UK self-isolates.
I’m excited to introduce the character design for Og-Grim-Dog. I think the artist has done a fantastic job of bringing the brothers to life. At the moment he is working on the cover for book one, so I hope I will have news on this for you before too long.
I like the fact that the fantasy community is still active online during this period – it’s nice to be able to interact with other people in this way. In that vein, I’m letting you know about an online reading festival I’m involved with over on Fantasy Sci-Fi Focus. It’s on virtually all day (especially if you’re in North America) this Saturday, so make some time to check it out!
