Kick off the New Year with a new short story by yours truly!

Cover of "Not Malicious. Just Unlucky"

Not Malicious. Just Unlucky

A fantasy short story

That’s right. I have FINALLY succeeded in indie publishing all four of the short stories originally published in Fantastic Depths. You can now find all four of them on ebook retailers everywhere.

Here’s the sales blurb for Not Malicious. Just Unlucky for those who don’t know what it’s about:

“For four years, Alica Onok has been trying to get rid of a mysterious enchanted staff that has caused her nothing but trouble since her grandmother gave it to her on her twentieth birthday. Yet it seems like no matter what Alica does, the staff always returns to her, whole and in one piece, as if it had never left her side at all.

Then Alica finds out that an unlucky spirit lives within the staff, a spirit who has been bounded to the staff for years and wants his freedom now. Without knowing any magic herself, however, Alica is powerless to free the spirit, forcing her to come up with an alternative means of doing so. Because if she fails, she will remain cursed with unluckiness forever.

Also contains an excerpt from Timothy L. Cerepaka’s next novel, “The Last Legend: Glitch Apocalypse,” set for release in January 2015 from Annulus Publishing.”

Buy Not Malicious. Just Unlucky from:

Amazon I Barnes & Noble I Kobo I Smashwords I Google Play I DriveThruFiction I Libiro I XinXii I Omnilit

In my opinion, the biggest selling point is that it has an excerpt from my upcoming science-fantasy novel, The Last Legend: Glitch Apocalypse, which is set for release later this month. So if you want to get a sneak peek of my next novel, I suggest downloading Not Malicious. Just Unlucky from your favorite ebook retailer and reading it right away.

Regarding my new website: It’s still not ready to go live. However, I think it will be ready to go live after January 5th, which is three days away. I will post more about my new website once I have a firm launch date in mind.

New short story, “The Most Beautiful Island in the World,” is out!

the most beautiful island in the world cover

That’s right. Just in time for Christmas, I have published the third of the four short stories from Fantastic Depths, called The Most Beautiful Island in the World, with a cover designed by jimmygibbs.

If you don’t know what this story’s about, here’s the blurb:

“After the destruction of his island’s once beautiful civilization and ecosystem, King Igici believes he may have finally discovered the solution to all of his people’s’ problems.

When his solution to these problems appears to fail, however, Igici begins to doubt his own ability to save his people. It does not help that his childhood friend, Gikil, expresses severe skepticism toward his plans to save his nation, thus eroding his already shaky confidence in himself.”

Even if you are not much of a fantasy reader yourself, this short story would make a GREAT last minute Christmas present for any fantasy readers you know, whether friends or family members. At $2.99, it’s a steal!

Anyway, keep an eye out for the fourth and final short story from Fantastic Depths, titled Not Malicious. Just Unlucky, which will be available before the year’s out. Stay tuned.

New short story, “The Gift of Valgink,” now available! (Plus a special announcement!)

the gift of valgink ebook cover

As part of my mission to publish all four of my short stories from the Ambage anthology Fantastic Depths, before year’s end, I have published the second short story I contributed to that collection, a rather quick read (mere 11 pages in PDF) titled The Gift of Valgink.

Here is the sales blurb for those who don’t know what it’s about:

“Backed up against a cliff, with nowhere to run to, Desdar Bandas—a human slave who is only one year away from freedom—must figure out how to save his life and the life of his elvish mistress, Kencha, from a pack of violent, bloodthirsty smoke wolves.

Yet when it turns out that Kencha has stolen from the pack a sacred object of immense value to the smoke wolves, Desdar is forced to choose between his freedom and Kencha’s survival.”

Regarding the special announcement mentioned in this blog’s title, sometime after Christmas but before New Year’s I will write up a post detailing all of my writing and publishing plans for next year. I have a lot of awesome plans, but I don’t want to announce them just yet, as I want to keep the focus on this year’s last few releases before I bring attention to next year’s plans.

Anyway, keep an eye on this blog for the announcements of the releases of the next two Ambage short stories, The Most Beautiful Island in the World and Not Malicious. Just Unlucky, as well as the release of the Prince Malock World Omnibus, all of which I will get up before year’s end.

If you would like to be the first to know about the release of the last two short stories and the Omnibus, you can subscribe to my newsletter HERE.

Hi, everyone!

With the recent publication of The Coronation of Prince Malock (which you can read about here) and the Prince Malock World novella series not set for release until January or February of next year, you might think I have nothing to publish in December.

Not true! In fact, I have a few things set for release this month, starting off with one of my short stories from the Fantastic Depths anthology, titled The Creator’s Dilemma.

Here’s the awesome cover:

Pretty awesome cover, eh? It was designed by jimmygibbs. I picked out the cover art, but it was jimmy who made it awesome, so all credit goes to him.

Here’s the sales blurb:

“The being called Listener must help his master, the enigmatic deity known as the Creator, decide the fate of a woman’s life. When the Creator confesses his love for the woman, however, Listener realizes the situation is far more complicated than it first seemed.”

Hi, everyone!

The fourth and final book in the main Prince Malock World series of novels is now available on all major ebook retailers for $7.99!

Here’s the sales blurb for those who don’t know what it’s about:

“With the unexpected death of his father the king, Prince Tojas Malock of Carnag is forced to don the mantle of King of Carnag amid persistent rumors of the corruption
of his friend, Skimif, who recently took on the role of God of Martir. Even as Malock fights to keep Carnag from joining the ever-growing coalition of Northern nations that are against Skimif’s rule, the ever-growing mountain of evidence against Skimif’s innocence causes doubt to gnaw at the back of his mind.

Ever since moving to the frigid far north, hundreds of miles away from the rest of civilization, with her adoptive father Quro, Jenur Takren believes that she can finally live the life of peace and normalcy that she’s always desired. Yet when an old enemy appears, seeking to kill her and her father for their past sins, Jenur is forced one again to use her skills of assassination to defend not only her own life, but that of her father’s as well.

In the final book in the main Prince Malock World series, Prince Malock and Jenur Takren struggle with their whole world turning upside down as their true enemy sets into motion a plan that could radically change Martir forever. Yet they may not be strong enough to do what they need to survive.”

“The New Era of Prince Malock” is now available in ebook form for $6.99!

The New Era of Prince Malock ebook cover

The New Era of Prince Malock, sequel to last month’s The Return of Prince Malock, is now available as an ebook on all major ebook retailers for $6.99!

Yes, I know I said it was coming out next month, but my cover designer got back to me much quicker than usual and I didn’t see any reason to delay, so I thought I’d just release it now.

Here’s the book’s sales blurb for those who don’t know what it’s about:

With the end of the world drawing closer every day, Prince Tojas Malock of Carnag leads his ragtag band of friends and allies through the dangerous southern seas to the very edge of the world in a race against time. Though Malock is determined to save the world, the gods have other plans for him and his friends, plans to derail the quest and allow the whole world to tumble end over end into oblivion.

Meanwhile, on the island of Carnag, Skimif, the aquarian leader of a social movement dedicated to ending worship of the northern gods, struggles to preserve the morale of his followers in the face of constant persecution from the government, as well as maintain his own optimism in the face of the incoming apocalypse. It is the discovery of his true destiny, however, that leads him down a path that will forever change who he is.

In this tale of mortals and gods, of destiny and apocalypse, fantasy author Timothy L. Cerepaka weaves an unforgettable story that will certainly resonate with readers and stay in their minds long after reading the last page.

“The Return of Prince Malock” is now available on all ebook retailers for $6.99!

Great news, everyone!

My newest novel–The Return of Prince Malock, sequel to June’s The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock and the second book in my Prince Malock World series–is now on sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google Play, and every other major ebook retailer on the Internet for $6.99!

Here’s the cover:

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.

Two new ebooks: “The Activist, or the Snake’s Chuckle” and “The Activist, or the Snake’s Chuckle: A fantasy collection” are now available!

theactivistorthesnake'schuckleebookcover

Hey everyone. Just blogging here to announce the release of my two newest ebooks: A fantasy novella called “The Activist, or the Snake’s Chuckle,” and a fantasy collection called “The Activist, or the Snake’s Chuckle: A fantasy collection,” which, in addition to having that novella, also has four short stories in it by yours truly.

Here are the blurbs, first for the novella:

When Koromo Samver, leader of the spiritual/social movement known as the World Activists, receives a letter from her old mentor, Mother Dimina, summoning her back to the Mountain Monastery, she answers it without believing much will come of it.

As it turns out, the Mountain Monastery is under attack by Lord Skamva and his Trinity, a group of demons thought to have been banished three hundred years ago. Even worse, a terrible skin disease–one which drives the infected insane and often leads to suicide–has spread throughout the Order of the Monks, infecting almost all of the Monks, including Mother Dimina herself.

And when Koromo herself comes down with the disease, she must race against time to find the cure for the disease and stop the demons before they succeed in destroying the Monastery. Because if she fails to stop the demons, then not only will the Order fall, but the rest of the World as well.

And the collection:

In “The Activist, or the Snake’s Chuckle,” the first and longest story of this fantastic collection, Koromo Samver, leader of the spiritual/social movement known as the World Activists, receives a letter from her old mentor, Mother Dimina, summoning her back to the Mountain Monastery, which she answers it without believing much will come of it.

As it turns out, the Mountain Monastery is under attack by Lord Skamva and his Trinity, a group of demons thought to have been banished three hundred years ago. Even
worse, a terrible skin disease–one which drives the infected insane and often leads to suicide–has spread throughout the Order of the Monks, infecting almost all of the Monks, including Mother Dimina herself.

And when Koromo herself comes down with the disease, she must race against time to find the cure for the disease and stop the demons before they succeed in destroying the Monastery. Because if she fails to stop the demons, then not only will the Order fall, but the rest of the World as well.

In the second story, “The Creator’s Dilemma,” the being called Listener must help his master, the engimatic deity known as the Creator, decide the fate of a woman’s life. When the Creator confesses his love for the woman, however, Listener realizes the situation is far more complicated than it first seemed.

The third story, “The Most Beautiful Island in the World,” features Igici, the King of the Island of Niji, as he works tirelessly to save his people. But after one too many failed schemes on Igici’s part, his friend Gikil is no longer sure she wants to support him.

In the fourth tale, “Not Malicious. Jusy Unlucky,” Alica Onok finds herself alone with the strangest toy fox terrier she has ever met. He claims to be an unlucky spirit named Ginor, but can Alica trust him? And just where did he come from, anyway?

And finally, the collection concludes with the fifth and final story, “The Gift of Valgink.” In this tale, the human slave Desdar and his elvish mistress Kencha are trapped by a tribe of smoke wolves, who claim that Kencha stole their most precious treasure. Will Desdar and Kencha escape alive or are they destined to be little more than fresh meat for the wolves?
