Blog- My new Book Series.

So i had told many of you that i’m starting on a new series. this series will be very long and should have much room to grow. I’m still working on a title to this series. but the first book is named Like Father, Like Son.

There will be three books in the first part of this series. then i’ll split of my main characters in to their own series and bring them back again down the road. I hope to have three books in each split off series.

I’m already working on characters and plots for those series also. i hope to start releasing short descriptions of my main characters and maybe even a few drawings that i will be having someone draw.

Sorry this is so short but very busy today. i hope to have more info in the near future.

The restaurant i work for is almost over. this means a few things for me.

1. Money is going to start getting tighter.

2. Days off will happen

3. Book writing will start again. thats a big YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY for this one.

outside of working i have started to build bios for my characters for my books. this consists of pictures that i can find of the people that inspired the characters. some were easy to come by some were harder. but the work on the bios has started.

i have a sci-fi series that i shelved a little while ago that i’m building now for a slow start. No Dates or real info on this series but i choose 2 very cute actresses as inspiration.

The steampunk mash-up. which is my main focus for right now. is what i’m building now. the inspiration for the main characters are set. Captain Smashtower, Andrew Savage, Maggie, Kennith , Danny Two- Pints, Raven and Anna. i’m still working on the Evil King and the higher officers of the Crimson Guard.

well its not alot of info but i hope it might peak your interest. and i hope to give you more info soon.

Andrew is a young adventurist. Who takes after his father. Running to the aid of people who need it. and this time it might be the entire planet that needs saving, from the Crimson Guard. With his Uncle and his two cousins Fleeing their home. Running from a Crazed King and his Army of Red-The Crimson Guard.

Along the way they meet new friends. Who will help them survive the trials before them. Will Andrew live long enough to be the man his father thought he could be?

Happy New Year!!!

I wanted to let everyone know my plans for the first part of the year.

1.My short story ROTH (Rise Of The Harkon) will be ready soon. The editing is done just waiting for the book cover. This short is about the Harena during the battle to reclaim their home. this will be out in ebook form. I hope you upload it to Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

2.Spirit Lance Fusion– will the combination of Spirit Lance and ROTH. re-edited and fused together into a new file. and i also hope to be selling paperback copies for my website.I hope you upload it to AmazonSmashwordsKobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

3. Talon’s Tale– is a second short story. this story will see the talon as he grows up in a hostile environment. on his home planet. I hope you upload it to AmazonSmashwordsKobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

4.Book 2 of the Native Protectors series is titled Goliath. This book will most likely be out the second part of the year. I hope you upload it to AmazonSmashwordsKobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

5. i plan to go to PHXCC13 in May. just to enjoy the company. this is the closet thing to a vacation i’ll have for the year.

6. i have two other book series started that i hope to have the first ebooks published around May. The first is Like Father, Like Son this is the first of many SteamPunk books. This i hope will be my largest series with 18 books in total and many short stories. the second series is a post apocalyptic series. three books planed.

7. in Oct. of this year the Arizona Browncoats will host the Browncoat Ball in Phoenix. This i will be at also as an Arizona Browncoat.

These are my plans as of now.

 

 

I think i’ll be cutting back on a lot of things i do. I don’t get paid to social network. i don’t get paid to help try to drive more business to my boss’s business. I social network because i like it but now it seems to be getting in the way of my book writing. But how do i book write when i can’t get any real help on editing. i have one or two people that help when they have free time but that’s not often. But is it worth writing when you can not get any artwork for covers. I’ve seen people willing to charge everything from 350 to build a website. to 250 to make a book cover for me. i found a great lady in New Mexico that did mine for 99 dollars and it was cool. But my book is struggling to make money and i can’t afford to pay to much for the work. so i started to look in to doing the covers myself. not something i have a passion for. this will be hard.

My first book, i had a passion for and i still do but my Sci-Fi is directed to young teens. and i placed it out on ebooks. how many teens are reading on Ebook anyway? or is my book just not interesting to this crowd? On that note i will be working on wrapping up the current projects.( 2 short stories and book 2) and moving on to a different series more adult driven. i still will work on the Native Protectors series but it will be on the back burners. I will start to push my self made web site. WWW.smashtowerbooks.com . Native Protector might do well in print if i ever get the chance to print it. So as my current projects start to drop i’ll be working on my steampunk and apocalyptic series. both that have been started. So if i look like i vanished. i’m working on my books. sorry for the Rant. i just had to get it out.

Blog- Yesterday

Yesterday i had a headache and have had one for a few days. but there could be many causes.

1.one my glasses need to be replaced.

2. stress from bills

3. stress from knowing i want to do 2 major events this next year as a helper or as a patron. (Full event passes and room stay.)one event is still a secret. but will be announced soon and the other is PHXCC13.

on a good note my book is now on Smashwords but under review. no clue how long this will take to be done.(Stress again)

Good note again- i worked on a new book series plot and worked on editing Rise Of  The Harkon.

Good note again ,again- will start working on the second short story today. this one and Rise Of The Harkon will be fused with Spirit lance down the road. i hope to print that book into a hard copy and sell it off the website.

just a few notes. enjoy your day.

So i have not posted a blog in a long while. and there is some reasons for this. I’m a new author and i’m thin skin about my writing. i have never said that i was the greatest writer in the world.  I like to see my stories in print. i like the idea that someone else way enjoy my stories. I had a bad review and it took the wind out of my sails for a bit. and it did not help that my friends that have been editing my books. are not helping much. So i have started searching for a few local people that can help.

My first book has done poorly in sales but i expected that so. it is depressing that i’m not selling books like R.A.Salvatore . My stories are getting out there. About 700-800 copies of my book are out there. so i’m happy about that. Spirit Lance and the Native Protectors series will continue. but i think much slower. I have also changed my plans slightly. Rise Of The Harkon is written but not edited. i’m working on that now. It will be released when it is ready. i also started working on a second short story. Rise Of The Harkon and the second short story will be released individuality for around .99 cents. but i hope to fuse all three. Spirit Lance and Rise Of The Harkon and the new short in to one book called Spirit Lance Fusion.  And i hope to have this book in print (Hard Copy) being sold on my web site when it is finished.

I still have many book ideas in the works. i expect most will be like Spirit Lance (Short books). I will be writing many short stories or companion stories to go with the short books. Many maybe asking why don’t you just write longer books. I have a short attention span. i will try to plot out a book as best as i can. I will give myself goals and i will push to finish them. But in most cases i rush. i hope to cure this problem but it is a work in progress. Moving on to Gaming.

Gaming- I play Guild Wars 2.  My guild has about 15 players. And a few of us like to play World Vs World or PVP or RVR. how ever you like to think of it. i enjoy the PVP. This play is close to a game i used to play called Dark Ages Of Camelot. Many people think that the maps in PVP are too small and i agree to a point. it take a long time to run back where you were. to join your friends. i wish all keeps and supply camps had portals for the controlling forces. making it a little easier to get back in the game.

Local events and Podcasts- I’m a big fan and supporter of Western X. A web series that is filmed locally here in Arizona. The production campany Cazador Productions has several  projects in the works. they will be doing 24/7 internet radio soon which will be very good to listen to with some of the shows that they already have. Recently i was given the opportunity to record a podcast with Western X creator Michael Flores. This episode he is joined by Thomas Hinman (Film Composer), Actor David Staley and fans Robert Tabb (me) and Clint Felton. Called Weird West Radio. In this show Micheal mentioned a show on Cable Called Hell On Wheels . Which got me interested in the show. thank you Michael for that. i have watched all of the shows now and are all caught up. Sweet new one this weekend!!!

Well this the end of this posting for now but i hope that i caught you up on what i was doing recently. Hope to post again soon.

Later,

Robert Tabb

So i have mixed feelings about reviews. Some authors could not care about them at all. and some want feedback to see if we are getting the right story a crossed. I’m not going to say that i’m the best writer in the world. Hell no i’m a guy who wanted to tell a story, and in my case many stories. I like reviews , but at the same time don’t want to see a lot of negative remarks. so i’m going to try something different for me. i’m going to give my email here. and hope that people use it to let me know what they liked and did not like about my book so far.

Smashtowerbooks@gmail.com

i will going to a local event to support a few local authors at a new comic book store

So if you have read my book and liked or disliked it please send me a email and let me know in detail what you thought.

 

 

I have decided that i’m going to donate a small portion of my income from all my books to 5 charities. i still have not decided yet on all the charities. but i do know one to start. The first charity will be Kids Need To Read.  i’ll be doing some research to see what other 4 i will choose.
