Lionsheart – Kickstarter Fully Funded + Merch Stretch Goal!

Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

We’re fully funded in just 11 days – which means backers will now be able to get their hands on Lionsheart around two months before retailers do ๐Ÿ™‚

And if you haven’t had a chance to pre-order, you can still do so, as there’s plenty of time left on the campaign.

Here are details on some of the reward options:

$5 – ebook, two months early
$15 – all 6 ebook set
$25 – paperback
$50 – reader cameo reward

Lionsheart โ€“ Kickstarter

The novel will soon go into editing, but in the meantime I’d still share sample chapters in the lead up to release, if you’re not able to pre-order.

However, if you’ve got any friends who like epic fantasy and you’re able to introduce them to this series that would be fantastic!

There are also some new merch-based rewards that will be available if we hit the Stretch Goal: a set of buttons, poster and t-shirt, which you can check out images of below ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for taking a look, pre-ordering and spreading the word about Lionsheart!

Lionsheart – Kickstarter is Live!

Morning all! My new kickstarter is now live, so if youโ€™ve been keen to take a look at the final page you can do so via the link below:

Lionsheart โ€“ Kickstarter

Iโ€™ve launched a little early to hopefully give folks extra reading time leading up to the bookโ€™s release. I know the covid-19 virus is much upon everyoneโ€™s minds at present, so I do understand if few of you are in the mood for pre-ordering entertainment items.

But if you are in a fortunate place, and you enjoy the Bone Mask books as much as my Never stories, I think youโ€™ll find some great bonuses here too.

Thanks for taking a look!

The Five Furies of Heaven – Out Now

Hello!

I know it’s been many moons since I posted on this blog, and perhaps longer since I posted about fiction here, but I wanted to say that I have a new release ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’ve already seen me posting about The Five Furies of Heaven on social media then you can just click on the image to choose a retailer ๐Ÿ™‚

If all this is new then I’ve included a blurb below for a bit of context! This story is the start of a new series, separate from my other ongoing novels. Half-jokingly I refer to this story as a bit like D&D + the Tom Hanks film Big!

Fighting the insect hordes of a malevolent God isnโ€™t easy when youโ€™re a young man with no special talents.

While searching an old temple Kilek and his friends stumble across the Goddess Avendria who transforms them into heroes โ€“ all grown up, with weapons, magic, and skills.

But when she gives Kilek nothing at all โ€“ nothing except the impossible task of saving the lands โ€“ he must fight bitter doubts. Worse, a dark prince is massing his armies and more, agents of other Gods have been set loose in the world.

Only the long-lost dragons can turn the tide but Kilek must find them before itโ€™s too late.

And somehow, he has to do it all without divine intervention.

 

Thanks to everyone who helped me with The Five Furies… – especially to my editor Amanda and Rebekah for the cover! (Oh, and the paperback is due next week.)

I’d also like to thank the readers who write to tell me that they’ve enjoyed my other stories over the years – I hope this one is worth the wait too ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Ashley

 

PS – I hope to have some new poetry news (and poetry too) mid-year but I’m not sure of the timing just yet.

Patreon Launch!

Hi everyone!

This week I’m launching a Patreon page – for folks who’re not familiar with Patreon, here’s a link a short vid explaining it, but in even shorter form: it’s a way for fans to ensure creators can make more stuff!

I’ve launched my page in order to expand my miniature publishing empire by creating audio books and graphic novels, in addition to more great fiction & poetry in ebook and print formats during 2018. I’m pretty excited about this and can’t wait to get started!

If you pledge you’ll get early access to new releases, along with exclusive updates, previews, images, videos, fiction and Patreon-only giveaways too ๐Ÿ™‚

So far I’ve shared a super-early cover reveal for Never #6 and will be sharing some more from The Last Sea God and a Q&A video soon too.

Check it out right here ๐Ÿ™‚

The Yellow Butterfly & Other Stories – Out Now!

The Yellow Butterfly & Other Stories is a collection of short fiction that brings together some of my previously published and unpublished stories from the last 5 years or so. Here’s the blurb:

 

Leap into worlds like and unlike our own

A creepy restaurant stalks its customers, steampunk slaves find a new home in the Australian desert, storybook characters come alive to make deals with the Roman God of Sleep and in the future, a synthetic society suffers dark consequences of endless augmentation… all these stories and more lurk within.

A collection of short fiction featuring steampunk, cyberpunk, fantasy and even a little horror!

 

It’s currently available across a wide range of retailers as an ebook for $2.99 and as a paperback for around $15-$20 or you can enter a Goodreads Giveaway for a chance to win a print copy right here ๐Ÿ™‚
