Now that Settling In has been released, I'd like your help, since the Chaos series can only succeed with help!
Therefore, I'm doing a contest, and the rules are rather simple.
If you've read through the first and/or second books, please leave a review on the site you received it from. Make sure you leave an identifiable name (reasons below). Above all, I want you to give a truthful review (though praising the book never hurts).
Once you have left a review, send me an e-mail (address available at my website) with the link of the review, the identifiable name you wrote it under, your real name, and mailing address. No, your mailing address won't be shared (make sure you have your parent's permission if you're under the age if 18).
Why am I collecting addresses? At the end of January 2014, I will pick a name at random to send a hardcover version of one of the first two books in the Chaos series (when available) to that winner. I'm thinking about sending a softcover to another winner, but I'll have to consider that.
Also, I may be sending out some goodies (bookmarks, etc) on an irregular basis to those who I have an address on file for. Who knows? You may even get a pre-press copy of a future book in the mail!
The second book in the Chaos series is now available on Smashwords.com!

Truthfully, I wanted to do a cover with one of the tenants, but I found out my artistic skills need a lot of work, so I decided to go with the abstract cover, like the first book.
The price is $2.99. However! I have a coupon for you!
Enter the above coupon during checkout and get it for 50% off! That's right! For only $1.50.
The coupon ends at midnight on December 31, 2013 (which makes it January 1, 2014), so act now while you can!

Due to various other things going on in my life at the current time, it doesn't look like the book will be released until after Thanksgiving. I'm shooting for this Friday, the 29th.
I wanted to get the fifth draft finished during the previous weekend, but couldn't. I'll finish the fifth draft within the next day or so, then do a sixth draft, which will probably just be a read-through, since most of the issues have been taken care of. Then I'll attempt to do a good piece for the cover, of one of the tenants.
It will be on Smashwords first, and then their distribution will take care of sending it to Barnes and Noble, iTunes, etc. I'll have a coupon on Smashwords as well. The print versions will be available on Lulu, as usual.
Also, when released, I will have a contest concerning the series, related to getting the word out with reviews of the first two books in the series.
I hope you're anticipating reading the book as much as I am trying to get it released!

The fourth draft (the third draft was completed when review a test copy of the printed version) is approximately 75% done. I'm pretty much "on schedule" for a late November release of at least the eBook version. The print version will probably take a little while longer.
I want to try and draw a cover with one of the characters to give the book a little more impact. This also means I would have to go back and do a cover for the first book as well.
Our game review/playthrough is now up on YouTube!
