Looking Back: 2014

2014 is nearly over, with a mere three days left in the year before 2015 starts. I thought I’d take this time to look back on my year, with another post tomorrow talking about what I plan to do next year (which will be the special announcements post I mentioned a while ago).

Great news, everyone!

The Return of Prince Malock ebook cover

And here is the blurb:

After the disastrous voyage to once-mythical island of World’s End, Prince Tojas Malock is no longer sure what he believes in anymore. All he wants is time to think about what he and his crew have experienced and to see his home once more.

But upon returning to Carnag, Malock’s parents—King Halock and Queen Markinia, the rulers of Carnag—reveal that they have already arranged a marriage between him and Princess Raya Kabadi, the Princess of Shika, to take place exactly one month later. This leads into a series of events that Malock couldn’t have possibly foreseen or prepared for, including the rise of a new social movement dedicated to ending worship of all of the northern gods.

In this riveting sequel to The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock, author Timothy L. Cerepaka delves deeper into the world of Martir, a world where the gods are divided and the mortals must do whatever it takes to survive.

The print version of the book will be available via CreateSpace, Amazon, and your favorite bookstore in early October. I’ll be sure to let y’all know about it once it’s released.

Also, I am pleased to announce that the next book in the Prince Malock World series, titled The New Era of Prince Malock, will see an ebook release from Annulus Publishing sometime in November, with a trade paperback edition following in December. If you’d like to be the first to know about its release, then subscribe to my mailing list HERE, where you will be the FIRST to know about the release of The New Era of Prince Malock and any other books or stories I release.

Last day to buy “The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock” for $3.99 and £3.08 on Amazon US/UK!

This is the last day of the half-off sale of my novel, The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock. Starting tomorrow, it will return to its original price of $7.99 USD and £4.99 on Amazon US and Amazon UK.

As I said before, this is the last sale I will be running for the rest of 2014, so you won’t see this novel or any of my other books at this low a price again until at least early 2015. So if you’ve been waiting to get it while it’s on sale, I highly suggest you do so now.

The sale, sadly enough, is already over on Libiro, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still buy it. It will just be more expensive is all, although I should note that Libiro has mobi, ePub, and PDF versions of the novel, in case you happen to like a different file format from Amazon’s mobi or don’t own a Kindle or something like that.

Feedback on the blurb for “The Return of Prince Malock” wanted

Hey guys.

Next month will be the official release of The Return of Prince Malock, the sequel to June’s The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock and Book Two in the Prince Malock World series of novels.

I’ve been working on the blurb for the novel, but it’s been a kind of frustrating process, largely because I’m not sure how interesting it is. Just to be sure, I am going to post it here for my readers so they can tell me if it sounds good or not.

Here it is:

After the disastrous voyage to the once-mythical island of World’s End, Prince Tojas Malock is no longer sure what he believes in anymore. All he wants is time to think about what he and his crew have experienced and to see his home once more.

But upon returning to Carnag, Malock’s parents — King Halock and Queen Markinia, the rulers of Carnag — reveal that they have already arranged a marriage between him and Princess Raya Kabadi, the Princess of Shika, to take place exactly one month later. This leads into a series of events that Malock couldn’t have possibly foreseen or prepared for, including the rise of a new social movement dedicated to ending worship of all of the northern gods.

In this riveting sequel to “The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock,” author Timothy L. Cerepaka delves deeper into the world of Martir, a world where the gods are divided and the mortals must do whatever it takes to survive.

Does this sound interesting? If you saw this on an ebook store or on the back cover of a print book, would you be enticed to buy the book (or at least read the first few pages just to see if it’s as interesting as this makes it out to be)? If not, why not?

I would really appreciate as much feedback on this as I can get. A novel’s blurb is very important in helping it sell, so if it’s uninteresting or badly written or whatever, I would like to know so I can rewrite it and make it better, if necessary. Specific comments would be more helpful than vague ones, though I’ll take what I can get.

“The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock” is now enrolled in Kindle MatchBook, and some other news

For those of you who are interested, I just enrolled The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock in Amazon’s Kindle MatchBook program.

For those who don’t know, Kindle MatchBook is a program where if you buy the print version of a book from Amazon, you can get the ebook version either for free or priced at $0.99, $1.99, or $2.99, depending on what the writer/publisher priced it at. I think it’s a pretty neat idea myself, even though I don’t know how often people actually use it.

So if you buy the print version of The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock from Amazon, you can get the ebook version absolutely free. Since the ebook version is currently priced at $7.99, you’re saving that much money when you buy the print version and get the ebook version through MatchBook.

Also, the sequel–titled The Return of Prince Malock– is almost finished. I expected to publish it sometime in late September. After that, I will start work on Book 3 in the Prince Malock World.

You read that right. There will be a third book in the series (currently untitled). I didn’t plan for it to be that way, but the story grew again and I decided to roll with it. I don’t think there will be a Book 4, but if there is, I will make sure to let y’all know.

Also, I have activated the “Ask the Author” section on my Goodreads profile. So if you want to ask me some questions on Goodreads about my books or writing or whatever, go to my profile here.
