Hello everyone!

Sharp Writ Book AwardsNow that we have survived the Mayan calendar and the Fiscal Cliff, the new year holds wonderous possibilities. 2013 has started with a bang for the Dragon Rising series. Shadows of Kings won the best sci-fi/fantasy novel for 2012 at the Sharp Writ Book Awards. As proud as I am of the first installment to my saga, it was wonderful to win this award in such a broad category with other amazing authors. I was satisfied by just making it to the final round, but when notified of taking first place, needless to say, I was elated and still find myself walking with a little more swagger.

On another note:  there are whispers of a Shadows of Kings movie script being put together. The screenplay will be a collaboration between myself and a group of writers in Northern California. But until there is more on the development side, I’m afraid there is not much more I can tell you.

The final edits are underway for the second book of the Dragon Rising series. Shades of Virtue is still projected to be released by Twilight Times Books in Summer 2013. I’m also hoping the book cover will be completed soon, but like everything else…I just have to wait. For those who were expecting Shades of Virtue to be released in Spring of 2013 instead of Summer, I apologize. Twilight Times Books had some delays with releases prior to mine, so the pipeline became a little backlogged. Though scheduling is out of my hands, I  am still  sorry if you were hoping to read it by Spring. But I promise, the delay will be worth the wait.

PRICE BUZZ:  For those who prefer paperback rather than e-book, Amazon.com currently has the best price for Shadows of Kings at $13.46. Kindle and Nook formats are still $3.99. Just want to make sure potential readers are saving a buck! Oh…and if you’re in the Portland, Or. area, my favorite bookstore to snag my novel is still Jan’s Paperbacks.

Shadows of Kings also has a spotlight/review within the January issue of BTS eMag.

I think that covers it. Many thanks to all those who have sent warm sentiments in regards to my award. And a special thanks to those who continue to express an interest with the Dragon Rising series.

Oceans of Love,

Everything moves so fast. One of my colleagues recently complimented me on being proactive. In response, I informed him that I always feel three weeks behind. And I was warned that as the release date approached, things would move at a frantic pace. What an understatement! Once again, I am humbled by the process. And I’m humbled by the warm support so many have given. Your patience has been tested, and the day has finally come for us all.

The Shadows of Kings Paperback is now available for Pre-Order at Barnes & Noble: Purchase link is: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/shadows-of-kings-jack-whitsel/1110607454?ean=9781606192238

You can also click the Shadows of Kings image at the far right of the blog.

Those who embrace Kindle formats, Amazon will have Shadows of Kings on their site very soon.

Thanks again for everything. I’m so excited to share this saga with you.

Oceans of Love,

Jack
