Amazon Kindle is here!

I am surprised at how painless that was, but Symbiotica, Proteus and Dystopian Detective are now available to purchase on Amazon. I will be updating all of the links on the book pages shortly.

At this moment, with Pentalore still being rewritten and extended, I have decided to leave Awakening off the list. If things continue to go well Darkseed will be arriving soon.

I will also be creating Paperback versions of my book on Amazon too although that will come later as I have to do a full redesign of my covers to include the spine and back cover.

At this moment the only major store is Google Play which is not accepting new authors at this moment. When that becomes available I will finish off this work and my books will be available across virtually every platform.

Finding my books on your favourite Retailer

Since I first started writing, I have had strong links with my publisher, Smashwords.
Whenever I released a new book, I linked it to my Smashword page and that also included the book list on the side bar.

As I have come to realise recently I have been getting many sales from other outlets including Apple and Kobo, in fact those sales are outstripping Smashwords even if they go through them.

People have their own preferred outlets they like to buy from so I have made a pretty big change on my blog in order to help you find what you want on the retail platform you use.

Firstly I have gone through all of the book release pages from the very beginning. They have been brought up to date with the latest cover art and information now pertaining to the rewrites, I have pulled the books I have discontinued and most importantly, on these reworked pages you will find there are now direct links to Smashwords, Kobo, Apple iTunes and Barnes & Noble. I have also put in prep links for when my books will be available on Amazon Kindle.

On the right side of the blog, you will now find the Buy my Books list now links to this blog as opposed to Smashwords, therefore you can now take the route you want to my works.

I have also updated all the books themselves linking to the blog as opposed to Smashwords so you can work through that too.

I hope this helps and thank you to everyone for your continued support!


Pentalore Art - Aemus World Map

I have already eluded to Aemus in the recent sneak peak at the Children of the Empire Saga, but with Pentalore still ongoing I wanted to give you an idea of what Aemus is like.

This is the cover from Awakening that shows what Aemus actually looks like ith a fully kitted out Jorstus warrior looking over the world. I wanted to give Aemus a very red feel, adding in purples to the mix to give almost a hellish feel to it, but if you look closer you can see that Aemus is a world rich with life.

The idea of world building is something most writers are familiar with, although for me, that goes much deeper. Penatlore and Proteus really do take us to new worlds and considering the detail I am going in to with the books, I decided to actually build a world...
This is the world map of Aemus. It has load of locations and give you a clear idea of what hell looks like... and its not very hellish at all. Aemus is a volcanic planet but the fact is that makes it a world rich with life.
I have put in detail of the nine demon races that live (or in two cases lived) on Aemus.

Anyhow, I will also be looking at Alphius Prime and Beletrix as well to really give you an idea of what these worlds looked like as well as a more detailed overview of the world and their solar systems too.

Enough from me... for the moment at least

Apologies for the size issues - not sure why but this is not uploading at its original size...

Here is the Text
Top Left - Jora - The bleak Northern Continent of Jora is a hard and unforgiving place home to the mountain dwelling and nomadic Jorstus. This continent is rich with life and offers excellent agriculture. Harashia is the  Jortus capital city built to form a focal point for their society as well as for religion and trade.

Bottom Left - Volem - Volem was a rich continent before the Darkening however even now its southern side is a barren wasteland. Home to the once proud Vola race in the south and the Necroswaben in the mountains of the north, the Aemon do not venture down to the Vola’s lands out of respect for this fallen race. Votae city is the former Vola capital which is now in ruins. Nekal city is the Necroswaben capital however is it underground and no outsider has ever seen it.

Middle Bottom - Syna - The continent of Syna is a beautiful and diverse place with towering mountains, deserts and forest. Gehai located in the south east is the capital of the Geneistus.
To the west is Desi, the capital city of the Sythar while far to the north west is the Karae city, capital of the Hakoran.
This central continent forms the back bone of modern Aemon society and as a result of this, on the equator is the great Aemon Capital city of Naran. Built after the Darkening this city is the hub of power, trade and society on Aemus.

Top Right - Sayir - Sayir is a divided land which both the Satirus in the north and the Kaliso in the south call home. Salta is the capital of the Satirus and is often called the industrial heartland of Aemus.
Ysola is the Kaliso’s capital offering a beatuiful land to vacation in with many different and beautiful places to see. To the west of the Kaliso's land is the terrible and forboding Fire Deserts. This whole area is the location of a hot spot under the surface forming a super volcano, however with this being a desert, the sands have crystalised in to glass, which has shattered over time forming the most spectacular and deadly place on the planet. This is also the location of the Temple of Apeyra, a dark relic from their worlds past and the cause of the war to end all wars on Aemus, the Darkening. It is now understood to have been the remains of an Apeyron Warship that crash landed and was abandoned.

Bottom Right - Lehes - The continent of Lehes is a forbidden place on Aemus. Former home to the vicious and cruel Lessenholk, this place is now a dead continent, poisoned and diseased. After the Darkening, Moteth city was left to crumble after the allies found the Lessenholk were devolving. It is said these monsterous animals that were formerly a superpower on Aemus stalk the lands doomed for their genocide of the Vola.

Pentalore Awakening Extended Edition

A little back to front, but Pentalore Awakening has now been re-released in its extended version.
As part of the Endless Saga, Awakening was really the last part of that epic story. In Proteus Dark Empire, you get to see the return of Namah and the Aemon to their home world thanks to Zenni and Saya as they try to gain access to the Temple of Apeyra, the remains of a derelict Apeyron Warship on Aemus. In Dark Empire's Extended Edition, you see the story from the Alphians point of view, however in Awakening you see the story from the Aemon's point of view with the character's journey's being explored in far more detail.
The Marcus, Cali and Lexa story has also been heavily reworked and extended with a few surprises and twists added in for good measure.
The book now also ties in to Symbiotica Monsters of Tokyo which in its own way followed on from the story set in this book.

Overall the book now stands at 75,000 words, with near enough 30,000 words of new content.
Previous customers can go back to their retailer and download the updated copy for free.

On the cover,  this was always one of my favourite covers I have done. All I have added in is the Saga information and the Extended Edition tags as well as being a little cheeky and putting the updated model of Saya in for good measure.
Pentalore's rewrites continue with The Forgotten Library and Darkseed already in the process of being reworked.
Keep watching!

Alexander Nassau's Timelines

I have had quite a few people getting a little confused over what goes where in the time line.

Technically speaking that is the entire story so far.
I will add more when the books become available.

Dystopian Detective Extended and Rereleased

Another month, another re-release!
This time around it is the Dystopian Detective that comes in for the full rewriting process, taking the original stories to the next level and even I have to say you're in for a treat. Over the Ancient Girl and the Tourist you have nearly 65,000 words of new content, near enough doubling the size of the original books.

For the Ancient Girl it has been heavily rewritten and extended offering a proper introduction to the series that people unfamiliar with it will need as well as adding far more detail and character journeys in.

For the Tourist again it has been heavily rewritten and extended, although with this book you actually get an entirely new sub story as you follow the adventure that Amy and Shae go on as they try to track down the mysterious Manga author who is threatening to expose the secret of what happened in Symbiotica Monsters of Tokyo.

You will have noticed that I have officially made the first five books of the Dystopian Detective in to an overall Saga now. Titled the Shadow Soul Saga, you now also get an introduction to this in the Ancient Girl and a full mini story in the Tourist devoted to the dark force that is threatening Manchester.

You can take a look at the books here

 On the covers, yes this may be unusual, but they are actually the same beyond the Saga information and the Extended Edition tags.

I realise that so far this year I have only released one new book and I know that people are wanting to see what comes next, but these rewrites do have their purpose as they revisit and extend all the series I have done, but also set up for the new books that are coming. In total so far I have written 488,000 new words of content across the 17 books so far re-released. Taking the fact the original books were roughly 40,000 words each, that means I have added 12 entire new books of content.

Dystopian Detective - The Kakoi Riddle is the next book coming up and while this dark force that has been lurking in the background of the first two books has been playing a long game, needless to say she is taking the gloves off as Ella will come face to face with her dark nemesis for the first time and there are going to be more than a few shocks along the way.

Anyhow. I hope you enjoy these heavily revised and extended editions.
Pentalore next and just three books to go before normal service resumes!
