First of all, until the end of February the second edition of my first novel, Cynicism Management, will be on sale in most digital stores (e.g. Amazon | Apple | Inktera | Kobo | B & N). During this time you’ll be able to get it for only 99 cents. For more information about the novel – or to grab a free direct download of the extensive original soundtrack for it – head here. By the way, a few people asked about this: yes, of course the book is DRM free. DRM protection annoys the hell out of me, and I definitely don’t hold it against anyone if they make “unauthorised” copies of the book.
Secondly, the graphics and illustration wizard Matej Peklar has just finished the cover for my second novel, Pendulum Pet (Cynicism Management Series, Book 2), which is to be released in March. The final draft is done, and I’m about to start formatting the text for e-readers.
In the meantime, head to this page to find out more about the upcoming novel and listen to the complete, quite extensive original soundtrack for it (you can either stream it or download it free of charge).
Finally, I’m happy to report that my new author homepage is now finished and you’re most welcome to check it out. Apart from my usual ramblings about books and music it also offers direct free downloads of most of my albums, recorded in the recent years (I’ll be adding more from my “back catalogue” over time). The download packages – available to all my “new release mailing list” subscribers – contain tracks in 320kbps mp3 format as well as artwork for each of the albums. This means that you can now download the complete Cynicism Management and Ray Kosmick discography directly from my site – free of charge.
I’m currently working on my third novel and the accompanying music album, both of which will be entitled Dog Days. The book is at about 20 % of rough draft, and I’ve just started composing the songs and recording the first tracks, so no demos yet…
This about wraps up everything I have to report this month. Next time I’ll hopefully be able to announce the release of my new novel.
