Well I'm going to order the handwritten originals, laminated and with each page autographed.

EDIT: Or maybe nonlaminated, so I can breathe in the sweet noxious fumes of Saber-Scorpion's writing. Maybe I'll order his quill too.

Glad you guys are liking the cover. biggrin.gif At first I was going to have a full-body drawing of Saber-Scorpion, but I thought the extreme close-up would have more impact, and I just put the battle details in the visor reflection. I was going to make a section of the visor broken (along the scar-like cut you can see there) so you could see his eye... but that would require a full-color cover instead of 2-color, which would cost more...

QUOTE (Dark Link)
But what I want to know is... self-published, or tradittional way?

Self-published, like before.

QUOTE (Curse)
Is this the first Nova Refuge book out? Or is there many more that I can get, because I really like the idea of Nova Refuge so I really want to read a lot about it.

Yes, this is the first book. I am, of course, planning on a sequel (which is why it says "book 1"), and I've also been working on a comic book I'd like to publish. After I get more articles ready on the site I'd like to compile them into a published "companion" or something too. Oh, and I have had this project on the back-burner of doing a CCG (collectible card game) for some time now... if only I had time to work on it...

But if the first novel is successful, it will help all of the other projects see the light faster. wink.gif

QUOTE (Blade Falcon)
Awesome, there are gonna be a lot of Nova Members this time next month. Probably not me though, as shipping is $12 for me in the UK. I wonder if my library will order it... If not, I'm sure I can rustle up $32 for this. After all it is 400 pages long, and written by the king of pwnage.

Yeah, international shipping is expensive. I actually rounded the number down by about 30 cents, so I lose a little on the shipping myself. And that isn't even counting the ridiculous PayPal fees for currency conversion. In the end I make a lot less money on international orders than I do on domestic ones. But since international orders account for more than half my book sales, I try to make it as reasonable as I can.

QUOTE (Ginger)
Oh, balls. I hate saving money. I nearly have enough for Halo Wars, and then this comes out. Before you know it, Fallout 3 DLC will come out. Oh wait. *sigh* I guess I can scrounge something up... I'm guessing I can just mail the money instead of credit cards, despite it being risky...

Yes, cash, check, and money order are accepted, as long as they're in United States currency.

QUOTE (Trillian)
Looks and sounds cool, but i think i will wait until i read a review (or 2) before i go out and buy it.

I plan to post up some more info later also, such as an excerpt.

QUOTE (Mercutio)
I will buy it on three conditions:

1) it's recorded into audiobook format
2) said audiobook is read by Scorp's personal eunuch (I know you have one)
3) there isn't a three but two conditions seems kind of empty, y'know?

1) Heh. Maybe eventually.
2) His voice is way too monotone and lifeless. I could get one of the harem girls to do it though.
3) Totally.

Handwritten originals? You kiddin'? My hand feels like it's gonna break every time I do short answer questions on a test. I can't imagine writing a novel that way... A quill would be good to have though. For aesthetics.

That would nix the shipping cost for Euros. But just to be lucrative, you'd have to charge $30 for it in Ebook format. wink.gif

Firstly I must say that cover artwork is ridiculously awesome!! It looks better than any bookcover I've seen before. Darn those international shipping fees! I'll have to get my school library to order it.
