The Dark Verse, Vol. 1 (Second Edition) Hardcover Book

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has enjoyed their copy of The Spirit Collectors as well as the audio experience with the audiobook version. This book is a dream come to life and I will forever be indebted to all of you for your help in making it happen! I've submitted the book in many awards competitions and I'll keep you updated throughout the year if it happens to snag any.

Just before the end of the year, I embarked on the Kickstarter quest to get The Dark Verse, Vol. 1: From the Passages of Revenants hardcover book reprinted as a second edition! The initial amount to be raised is just to print it as it was with limited revisions to the text and formatting, but If the book can raise more above and beyond that, new artwork will be added to the original to make it that much better! There are still over 20 days to go with the campaign:

I realize many of you may already have a first edition copy of this book, so I will also have a 2016 Dark Verse t-shirt designed by John F. Stifter for one of the rewards. Here is the preliminary artwork for the design!

Please check out the project when you get the chance! Thank you so much as for your continued support of my work and have a stellar new year!

Two Gigabytes of Audiobook Bliss

2 likes

The audiobook version of THE SPIRIT COLLECTORS is finally complete, and it weighs in at over 2.3 GB when downloading it at its highest quality!

The Ravener had his work cut out for him on this project, but it has truly paid off. Now you will be able to listen to the full dark fantasy novel with its soundscape accompaniment and enjoy a truly remarkable experience. I can't say that this is the first audiobook ever to undergo such and undertaking (it could be though), but if they are out there, they are few and far between. This is definitely a rare treat!

I'll be shipping out the jar replicas and other extras to the proper backers in the next few days, but the digital files are available NOW, and they aren't just available to specific backers; they are available to everyone, and they are available for FREE!

To download the audiobook in the lossless format of your choice (MP3 320, MP3 V0, FLAC, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, ALAC, WAV, AIFF), go here:

Simply click "Buy Now" and put in "$0" for the price and download away!

This is where I finally get to put the stamp of completion upon this project. I am so thankful to have supporters such as yourselves who have helped me bring this book (in all of its versions) to life! You've heard this over and over from me, but again, thank you, thank you, thank you! Now go download that audiobook and dive into the world of THE SPIRIT COLLECTORS!

Happy Holidays!

Audiobook Update

I hope everyone has enjoyed (or has been enjoying) THE SPIRIT COLLECTORS!

The Ravener's schedule got bogged down these last couple months with some important work that has taken precedence and so we're just waiting for him to finish up his magic! He's halfway through adding musical atmosphere and emotion and he'll be cranking away on the rest of it soon. The narration itself for the audiobook is nearly complete.

If you have the time, please let the world know what you think of this book by leaving a review for it. Your feedback is critical for the book to get the attention it deserves. At the time that I write this, there is not even a single review for it on Amazon. I really need all of your help! Here are the places to review it:

Thank you so much!

Let's Get Collecting

I hope all of you have been enjoying THE SPIRIT COLLECTORS! If you have had a chance to get through it, I could greatly benefit from your review/feedback. Here are some places I can use your words:

Here is a look at the Frin collecting jar for the MASTER COLLECTOR and ULTIMATE COLLECTOR rewards!

I'm still working on the audiobook and, once it's done, I'll put it on USB flash drives and insert them into these jars for their recipients. I'll also send a link to everyone else that will be receiving the audiobook as a reward.

'Unbelievable' is the word I would use to describe the feeling in knowing that THE SPIRIT COLLECTORS now has physical life! I am pumped every single day knowing that each of you can look to your bookshelf, nightstand, or other content-bearing surface and see it there!
