Ecstasy and Vendetta (Dark Mercury Book 3) released and available.
 
Yeah, I know I haven't been here on the site for a LONG time, and I'm only coming back to spam, but I thought there might be some people here who wanted to know but who don't follow my books on Facebook.

Book 3 of my series is now available on Kindle, and should be available in print within a month or less.



I'll try to make myself present for a bit to answer questions if anyone has them...and actually remembers who I am...

JohnnyVann 02-20-2014 06:28 PM

Hi, are you new here?

:p

JohnnyVann 02-20-2014 06:29 PM

Btw, great timing. I'm almost finished the book I'm currently reading!

Kick Frenzy 02-20-2014 09:00 PM

I'm an asshole... I've yet to get around to starting to read the first book.
But in my defense... PARENTHOOD!!! :lol:
(Well, that and forums... and gaming... but I can pop in and out of those. I like to get all intimate with books, giving them some undivided attention and shit, ya dig?)

K, I'm done digging my hole now.

Gratz on the new book release!
I'll be looking forward to when it comes out in print, even though it'll be a while til I get to it.
It's an exciting story to read... I can't wait until I start!

And thanks for coming through here and letting us know.
(I'm one of the ones who don't have you on Facebook.)
Even if you're only here for a little bit. :p


:hug:

It IS about fucking time. Personal life/career got in the way of it. I'm actually at the point now of considering trying to leave work in favor of taking the dive into writing more aggressively. Still a bit of a dream, though.

It's a great book. I had the great honor of editing it for Mr. Augie.

Now I wanna go back and read 1, 2, and this one all in a row.

Book 2 is in print now.

Book 2 will be in print about 2 weeks or so. I just ordered my proof copies for an early March delivery, and once I check to make sure everything is golden, that'll be that. :)

JohnnyVann 02-21-2014 08:53 PM

How does on follow on Facething?

After having posted what I did last time, I started reading book 1 today!
Granted, I only made it through the prelude and Chapter 1, but it's a start! :D

I can't wait to read through this one and move on to the books I haven't seen anything of before!
That reminds me... while reading, I came across a line that I had forgotten, but immediately remembered upon reading it.
It always struck me as an awesome line... one that fleshed out the character for me with just that one sentence, "A severe looking woman with blonde hair pulled back into an impossibly tight bun stands up."
BAM... all of a sudden, there she is... all sharp angles, cold, scowly and, in my mind, dirty blonde.
(She's also a bit older in my head theater.)


Oh... and Johnny... go here: https://www.facebook.com/darkmercurynovels

The above SHOULD have said, Book 2 is in print now, Book *3* will be out in print in a couple weeks.

Yeah, I noticed that, but figured... I'm not reading your text to find mistakes anymore. ;)
(Actually, I was probably drunk and just blew past it knowing what you meant. hehe)

Also, I'm almost halfway through Chapter 4 now! :D

JohnnyVann 03-01-2014 10:55 AM

Ok, finally finished my other stuff.

Couple things. I started reading and my first thought was "WTF?" I was completely lost. I had to read the last chapter of the second book to figure out / remember what was going on. I would say this is definitely book 3 of a series, not a stand alone.

Have you thought of starting a a Dark Mercury page on Wikipedia? Wouldn't take much work foe free advertising.

When does the board game and action figures come out? :p

Kick Frenzy 03-01-2014 11:31 PM

Just starting Chapter 5 now, but at least I'm making progress! :)
And damn is this shit as enticing as it was the first time around!

I can't wait to see what happens next... again. ;)

(Do not, ever, take these shits off of print availability.. at least not until I have them!

JohnnyVann 03-06-2014 07:41 PM

Auggy, next time you pop in can you give us a brief summary of your experience as a self published (mostly) ebook author? First and foremost how is the money? Obviously you aren't getting rich since you are still working but you must not be going broke since you've got the third out now.

Kick Frenzy 03-06-2014 09:21 PM

Johnny brings up an interesting point... like, how successful it feels self-publishing could be for you.
(My hidden agenda is hoping to hear your sales are fucktastic! :D)

Also...
I'm about halfway through chapter 12 now and I gotta say... it's a blast reading this again.
It's been awhile so I don't recall everything up front, but I'm all like "oh YEAH" as I'm reading... it's fun!
Just a great story and writing... totally keeps me wanting to read the next page and the next page and...

Huzzah!

Phoenix Psaltery 03-07-2014 12:38 PM

I have to say that I am a little hurt that nobody ever bothered to ask ME those questions.

:lmao2:

you didn't start a thread :neener:

Sansarya 03-14-2014 06:55 PM

*bump* if you read the book, go leave a review at Amazon. Mine is the only one there right now. Auggie needs some review-love!

Kick Frenzy 03-14-2014 10:35 PM

I'm still working on book one! :lol:
(Currently about to start Chapter 14.)

But you can bet your sweet patootie I'll be leaving a review as soon as I finish it!

Sally Rosebud 03-17-2014 03:20 AM

Just finished reading it. Want to read more!
