More Prizes to Win!

18 Dec

First, sorry that I didn’t post this at midnight this morning, but I am in the last two finals I will ever take. That’s right – next time I post on this blog, I will be a college graduate. 

Second, thank you to author, T.B. Markinson, for guest blogging on the 16th. Isn’t she amazing?

Third, if you’ve been following my blog since last week, then you might have seen the Ebook Extravaganza Virtual Launch Party where we gave away a Kindle Paperwhite as well as many other prizes, like Amazon and Starbucks gift cards. If you attended, I hope you won one of the many prizes! If you didn’t here’s your chance to win AGAIN!

Firsborn Virtual Launch Party - Cover Art

Tomorrow, on December 19 (7 – 9 CST), celebrate the anticipated contemporary fantasy, Firstborn, meet the author, and win prizes.

Everything is virtual – meaning, you celebrate over Facebook. There are games every 10 minutes, and every time you participate, you have a chance at winning something fantastic! And you guys know Ryan Attard. He guest blogged on my website on October 21. (Here’s that post.)

And if you’re interested in contemporary fantasy, here’s a synopsis of his recently released novel, Firstborn:

“There’s a war raging between the forces of Heaven and Hell; and, as if his own issues weren’t enough to deal with, his sister has chosen the wrong side. Now he’s got angels, demons, talking pets and a Japanese monster to contend with. Follow Eric Ashendale in this first full length novel of ‘The Legacy Series.’”

Ryan Attard is beyond hilarious and sure to entertain you. He also has a short story, Dread Night, published, and a website you can check out if you’re extra interested.

P.S. Can’t wait to post next time as a college graduate!

 

Guest Blog: The Scriptlings by Sorin Suciu

19 Jul

Website Update: The Shannon A. Thompson, author Facebook page has surpassed 500 likes! Thank you for making my trip that much better. I can’t wait to share it with everyone. 

Shannon again–for only a moment. I’m still out of town, but I wanted to introduce my next guest blogger and thank him for helping me by keeping my blog going. Sorin Suciu is the “author of the laugh-out-loud contemporary fantasy The Scriptlings, due to be conjured into reality in 2013.” Here’s a line from the description of his upcoming novel that I found completely enticing: “Caught on opposite sides of a battle for Magic, Merkin and Buggeroff are forced to question themselves and what is best for a world that is blissfully unaware of imminent danger.”

He’ll be talking about this upcoming work, starting now:

You see, to me advertising is a read-only art form – I am reasonably good at appreciating it when I see it, but I am hopelessly unimaginative when it comes to performing it. That is why, when Shannon so generously offered to host a little sales pitch for my upcoming debut novel – The Scriptlings, I had to hesitate for a moment, before even remembering to thank her for the opportunity. I shall, nevertheless, endeavour to write about The Scriptlings without repeating too much of the content already available on my author page at AEC Stellar and on Facebook/The Scriptlings.1017096_146121828917299_924106237_n

The Scriptlings is a tongue-in-cheek contemporary fantasy, aimed at geeks and mortals alike. It is the unlikely, yet strangely charismatic lovechild you would expect if Magic and Science were to have one too many drinks during a stand-up comedy show in Vegas. I had an insanely amount of good time writing it, and I’ve been told by rather serious people that reading it can be conducive to LOL and OMG.

There you go. If you are looking for a fast-paced story played by a cast of endearing characters and a goat, or if you are a fan of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, Robert Asprin and others like them, then there is a not entirely remote chance you might enjoy The Scriptlings.

Thank you,
Sorin
