Project Update: Author Interview with William C. Tracy

Hello again! This time Heather is interviewing me about the books I have in the campaign this year. You can hear me talk about the second installment in How To Operate Your Body, this time focusing on The Arms. I also have a new progression fantasy series I'm starting about a girl born with one arm, in a world where magic comes from physical movement, and islands move across the seas very quickly, crashing into each other! You can even read the first 7 chapters on Royal Road for free!

We also have a semi-major update: the campaign is closer than you think! We realized we're actually going to be at ConCarolinas on the day the campaign starts, so we've moved the first day to Thursday, May 30th! Be one of the first to back, a few days early!

Project Update: Haunted Hearts now available as an add-on!

Hi everyone! WOW, funded in under 30 minutes, and almost at £2,000 after two days? I'm blown away by your kindness and support! Absolutely speechless! Thank you so much!

In project news, the paperback of Haunted Hearts has been included in the list of available add-ons. You can check it out here: https://www.backerkit.com/c/projects/ak-faulkner/wheel-of-fate-audiobook-production/add_ons/6626/share

Signed or unsigned? If you have any other paperbacks in your pledge, your copy of Haunted Hearts will match them. And if you don't, but you have other physical items, then it will be signed by default.

That's all for now. Please share this campaign far and wide and bully friends, family, or strangers into backing it. Now is definitely the time to put your charms to good use!

Keep your eye out for more updates, too: I'll stream peeks of add-ons on Twitch, so stay tuned!

Project Update: Poll: Which cover do you prefer for The Dark Thorn?

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for joining me on this journey. Things are beginning to ramp up here!

First off, the amazing Magali Villeneuve has begun work on the new cover for The Dark Thorn. She painted the artwork on The King-Killing Queen and I'm so fortunate she had the time to tackle Richard and his sword Arondight once held by Lancelot.

That said, she sent me an email this morning with two choices. I do want your feedback since it is ultimately all of you who will be buying the book. You should have a say, right? Hence, today, I am conducting our first poll. Take a look at the image below and then vote on the direction you'd like Magali to take. I think this is a fun way to get you involved as well as get your valuable insight.

As you can see, the cover design will mirror what we did on The King-Killing Queen. Richard will be aged up a bit, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with this direction. And for those of you who have read The Dark Thorn already, please don't mention the lack of the staff in this painting. I'm doing this for a reason. I don't want spoilers posted. Ha!

Feel free to post your thoughts below after you vote! Let's have some fun!

With Thorny Magic,
Shawn

PS: To vote, you do have to Follow the project on BackerKit, I believe.

Unfound Adventures

Project Update: "Becc the Brave & Ceith the Curious" - an Unfound Children's Viking Adventure, begins soon

Dillon and his wife, Morgan, had a baby last year named Keith.

Their friends, the Wagners, had their baby around the same time, named Beckett.

Adorable kids.

Being the attentive parents they are, Beckett's bravery and Keith's curiosity stood out. Because there are hundreds of children's stories whose stakes are no higher than "Will the baby stand?", they went to work on something special. Something different. Something inspired by their favorite works, while maintaining its originality.

"Calvin and Hobbes" showcased a different kid of story. One that takes place through the lens of the child as they are discovering the world. To Calvin, Hobbes is a real tiger. And to Becc and Ceith, their infantile Callings are fearsome beasts! The mundane, to two young adventurers uninitiated with the secrets of the world, can provide a wild test of their mettle, and of their friendship!

And any story told in the stylings of Evan Winston, our gifted Illustrategist, is bound to be rich with detail. With touches of How to Train Your Dragon & Studio Ghibli's Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Ponyo), this is a tale you cannot miss!

About the Story:
Becc the Brave & Ceith the Curious are two young beastborns in Year 90. We're in the time of Order, an epoch of great riches and wonderful expansion throughout Bastunia. Yet there remains a lot unknown about their world....and these two youngsters will find themselves in the thick of it. With only the other to rely on, follow Becc & Ceith on a story of bravery, of discovery, and of dear friendship!
