To celebrate the success of the iOS app, and to get a few more campers into the fold for Kraken Fishing (big update for book #2 in the next couple of weeks) I'm running a Kindle promotion for Phoenix Watching from May 6 - 10, where you can download the book for free! With Day One of the promo still in full swing, it`s off to a great start. As of right now, Phoenix Watching is #898 overall in the Kindle Free Store (out of, like, a ba-jillion) and #73 in the Fantasy genre!
Not bad, sure, but there's still time to lift Camp Myth even higher. I know I've asked all of you for a lot over these past few months, and, yes, I'm about to do it again, but I'd like to sweeten the deal this time. If you post about the Kindle promotion in your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., and leave a comment either here or on the Camp Myth Facebook group (www.facebook.com/campmyth) with a link/proof of your share, you'll be entered in a draw for a custom character in Kraken Fishing! I'll post a video update this weekend of the live drawing, and the person picked from a hat will be the winner!
Here's the link to the Kindle page for Phoenix Watching: http://www.amazon.com/Camp-Myth-Phoenix-Watching-ebook/dp/B008TJT94M/ref=la_B007HCBUZS_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1344391791&sr=1-9
Thanks so much, and - as always - Happy Camping!
It's been a while, huh? Well, if you're looking for the next installment of Camp Myth, the wait is finally over! I'm thrilled to announce that Camp Myth is now available for all devices on the Apple App Store as a Visual Novel! Just search for Camp Myth in the store and download an all-new adventure for Felix, Argee, and Moxie - Hydra Raising!
The best part? The app is absolutely FREE! New chapters will be unlocked each week, or you can pay just $0.99 to get everything up front. I would be eternally grateful if you would check it out, leave a starred review, or - best of all - help spread the word about this app. Visual Novels are a tough market, but maybe we can push Camp Myth into the most popular rankings! :)
As always, let me know if you have any thoughts or questions.
Thanks so much, and have a great day!
It's been a while, huh? How've you all been? By now, I hope you've all received your Phoenix Watching goods, and have enjoyed them to the fullest. Maybe you've even been wondering when you can expect the next big thing from Camp Myth...
Well, wait no longer! As some of you may have already heard, I've been working with Third Eye Games to transform the world of Camp Myth into a tabletop RPG, and we've just launched the kickstarter campaign today! You can check it out here: http://kck.st/Vagoxo
Now, I know that some (heck, maybe most) of you probably aren't interested in this kind of game, and I completely understand. But this won't just be a typical rulebook. I'm beyond excited about this project, because I've been a part of the design process every step of the way, making sure that not only will the finished product will be 100% canon with the series, but it will also serve as a sort of "style guide" for the camp, - packed with camp lore, additional information about each mythical race, and tons of new artwork! If you're a fan of Phoenix Watching, I guarantee you'll find plenty to love here, too.
Again, thank you so much for helping to get Camp Myth off the ground. Without you, none of this would have been possible, and I'll always be grateful.
I'll leave you with this first-ever look at our full cover spread for the RPG. I hope you enjoy it :)
