Flowers, butterflies, and May. What could be more Manly? Well, how about an epic book sale? Yup, for this month only our book is just $0.99 (reg. $4.99). We’re calling the event Manly May and we’d love you to check it out. After all, the first rule of adventure is “always take advantage of a good sale.” 🙂 Find the savings on amazon and Smashwords.

P.S. To our supportive friends and readers out there, we’d love if you shared this sale info with your friends. Or enemies. They won’t bug you if they’re reading a good book. Best to keep ’em busy.

If you’re still unsure about the whole thing, check out a few of our reviews from amazon:

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “A great story that kept me up late at night turning pages and wondering what was going to happen next.” – Fantasy Fan

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “What Joss Whedon did for T.V. fantasy with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Adrastus Rood does for the fantasy novel with Manly Hero.” – willwindow

The Book Designer’s Thoughts On Our Cover

Adam and I submitted our book cover to The Book Designer blog for the month of December, and the winner was recently announced. While we didn’t make first place, Joel did have some nice things to say about our cover.

JF: “Terrific job by all concerned. Beautifully conceived and executed, clearly one of the best designs here this month.”

Thanks Joel, we are pretty happy with it too. 🙂 And huge thanks to Tommy Panigot at NOTHEFT design.

You can check out the other entries and see the winners here.  You can still find our book on amazon and Smashwords, and now also on Apple ibooks and Barnes and Noble’s Nook.

How to Give Your Indie a Five-Star Holiday

The indie author in your life is rather easy to pick out from amongst your other, more stable, better-adjusted friends: we are the perpetually bloodshot-eyed ones, living in self-imposed exile, surviving on nothing more than ramen-noodles and hope, and “borrowing” awkward amounts of beer from anyone that will “lend.”

Now, I imagine you’ve been asking yourself, this holiday season, “What can I do for this poor, emaciated soul? This pale, sad specimen of humanity? What do you get the person who has… well, nothing?”

Worry no longer. I’m here to help.

There’s really only one thing your indie author wants under the tree this year: a nice bump in book sales. Here’s how you can help to make that Christmas wish come true.

I did run in to one problem, though. I couldn’t seem to find the answer to one question: how do I add small caps to my Kindle ebook?
