Hey, everyone! Just wanted to let y’all know that there is a fun little character interview of one of my protagonists, Keo of the Sword from the War-Torn Kingdom series, over at Alexandra Butcher’s site, which you can read here. Great way to find out more about the War-Torn Kingdom series if you haven’t read it already.

 

New low-cost formatting services for authors now available from me!

Hi, everyone!

Due to a short-term need for cash, I’ve decided to do some freelance ebook and paperback formatting for indie/self-published authors. Having done my own ebooks and paperbacks for three years, I know how to do readable, good-looking ebook and paperback interiors that readers will love.

If you’re interested in hiring me to do some work for you, check out my rates HERE or by clicking ‘Formatting services’ at the menu at the top of this page. I’ve even included samples if you would like to have an idea of what I can do.

If you aren’t interested in hiring me, then please share my page with any indie authors you know who might be interested in hiring my services. Post it on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, wherever indie authors might be lurking. Every little bit helps.

Cover reveal: “The Cursed Lands,” Book 1 of The Dragon God Chronicles

Hey, everyone! I’m doing something I haven’t done in forever: A cover reveal for my upcoming novel, The Cursed Land. The book is set for release next week on Monday, January 16th in ebook format on all major ebook retailers (and possibly paperback, too, though not sure about that yet), so I thought I’d drum up some excitement for it by revealing the cover here, so keep scrolling to see the cover.

And without further ado, here is the cover of The Cursed Lands, created by the talented Lou Harper:

I think it looks fantastic and really captures the mood and genre well. It’s almost as good as the cover for The Mage’s Grave and being my first Lou Harper cover, I am pleased with his work and will have him do the covers for the next two books in the series.

Like I said, you can expect The Cursed Lands sometime next week. I’m aiming for the 16th; however, due to the fact that not all retailers get books published on them at the same rate, it may be a bit later than that, but I’m going to try to line up all my ducks in a row and make it happen.

Regardless of when it comes out, you can always find out when it is released either here on my website or by subscribing to my mailing list HERE.

Looking Back: 2016 in review (and my plans for 2017)

Another year has come and gone and so much has happened this year. From major political events to celebrity deaths and everything in between, it is hard to call 2016 a ‘boring’ or even ‘uninteresting’ year by any measure. This will be a year that many people will remember for a very long time, including myself.

Drilling down to the individual level, this year was big for me as well. I finally began making a living wage from my writing, bought a car, and grew as a writer and a person in ways I never would have predicted back in January. I’ve also made lots of great writer friends, too, without whose help I would likely have not had such a great 2016.

In fact, I would even say that 2016 is the best year of my life yet. Period. Whether from a writing perspective or a personal perspective, this year has been my best. My books have sold amazingly well and I’ve made more money this year than I have in the entirety of my life prior to this year (which, granted, isn’t saying much given how young I am, but it’s still the truth).

In 2016, I launched my pen name, Lucas Flint, and it’s main series, The Superhero’s Son, which became my bestselling series ever. It’s what helped me to buy a car and make a real living with my writing. I intend to continue my superhero books into 2017, though I will talk about that in more detail later on.

I also published 18 books between my main name and my Lucas Flint pen name. That’s the most books I’ve ever published in one year. Even I can barely believe it. But it’s true. That’s one of the reasons I’ve done so well this year, although it is of course not the only one.

On a personal level, I’ve grown as a man and as a person. I have a much better understanding of who I am and what I want and what I need to do. I have a much greater vision for my life; I’m no longer quite as timid or hesitant as I was before. I think I even look better, honestly. I’ve learned more skills this year than I had the year before, skills that will no doubt help me to become even more successful in 2017 and beyond.

Overall, I am extremely happy with 2016. This was my best year yet by far.

What are my goals for 2017? I won’t list all of them here (mostly because many of them are personal and so probably not very interesting to most of you), but for my writing career, my goals for 2017 look like this at the moment:

-Publish 20 individual novels under both of my main names

-Publish two epic fantasy/sword and sorcery series under Timothy L. Cerepaka

-Publish two superhero series under Lucas Flint

-Publish a new series in a new subgenre I am currently researching. It will probably not be published under Lucas Flint, but it may be published under Timothy L. Cerepaka. There is also a strong possibility that I may publish it under an entirely new pen name, although I can’t guarantee that

-Finally maybe possibly get a few of my books into audio (I’ve been saying this since 2015 and I still haven’t done it, so don’t expect anything from this particular goal for 2017 until I can confirm that audio books are on the way).

-Participate in a new collaborative project that I cannot discuss in public at the moment, although if it works out, it could be really great for my career

That’s what you can expect from me in 2017. My goals will likely change and evolve over the coming year, but I expect most of these to goals to stay the same.

Happy New Year’s,

Timothy L. Cerepaka
