Hatchling: Magitech Legacy Book 2 Released on Amazon!

The second book in Chris’s new series in the Magitech universe has been released on Amazon! Hatchling, book 2 in the new Magitech Legacy series, continues the adventures of Jerek, the hatchling Briff, and the rest of the crew as they explore the Great Ships and encounter new challenges.

HatchlingDragons with Assault Cannons? How is that fair?

I saved Highspire and the academy from the dissolution of our world. 17,000 students survived, and I want to keep it that way. The ship is breaking down. Life support needs repairs, and we have almost no food. We need money badly. That means scavenging tech that we can sell to the same people who blew up our planet.

Fortunately I’m the best Relic Hunter in the business…though to be fair all the rest died when my world tumbled into the sun.

There are six other Great Ships out there, and who knows what we’ll find inside? I’m sure it will be fine. What could possibly go wrong?

Novel Marketing Podcast: Kickstarter Tips and Tricks With Chris Fox

Chris Fox recently appeared on the Novel Marketing Podcast discussing his new Kickstarter for the Magitech Chronicles Pen & Paper RPG.

Is there a market for your book idea?

Maybe you a great idea and a market to sell to, but you don’t have funding to make your dream happen?

If those are obstacles for you, crowdfunding could be a great solution.

Platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo are grounded in solid marketing psychology fundamentals like Urgency, Scarcity, and Popularity (Social Proof). Many authors have successfully funded and published their books with the help of crowdfunding campaigns.

To teach us about crowdfunding, I interviewed Chris Fox. He’s written several popular books, including Write to Market and How to Write 5000 Words Per Hour.

Chris Fox on The Fearless Storyteller Podcast

Chris was recently a guest on The Fearless Storyteller Podcast – Dreaming Bigger with Chris Fox.

What do Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, and author CHRIS FOX all have in common?

Chris is best known as the Write to Market guy, but he’s also a best-selling Science Fiction & Fantasy author. Selling books wasn’t always a slam-dunk, but he’s learned that understanding reader psychology is the key to having a full-time career telling stories. That’s why last year was his best yet for revenue, despite a significant slowdown in output.

What’s the reason for the slowdown? And, what’s the answer to my opening question? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Dying World: Magitech Legacy Book 1 Released on Audiobook!

Dying World, book 1 in the new Magitech Legacy series in the Magitech universe has been released on Audible!

Dying World Audiobook
Our world is tumbling into the sun

The quakes have leveled cities. Soon the continents will drift apart, before the final implosion. The ships are gone. There’s no way off. But I’m not giving up. I’m a Relic Hunter…an archeologist with a gun, and I have a plan.

Our people arrived on Kemet thousands of years ago in the wake of a terrible space battle. The Great Ships are still up there, ancient derelict hulks powered by a combination of technology and magic, created by gods we no longer remember or understand.

If I can get one of those ships active, maybe I can save myself. Maybe I can save everyone.

Worldbuilding With Chris Fox on the Building Dystopia Podcast

Chris recently appeared on the Building Dystopia podcast, discussing worldbuilding. The questions covered include the following:

  • Would you take us through your personal worldbuilding process, perhaps highlighting what you believe are the most important elements of worldbuilding?
  • What elements of the world contribute most to it becoming a transmedia world? What is it about a world that attracts other mediums and stories?
  • What is it about a world that encourages fan engagement, fan fiction, con participation, etc..?
  • What are your favorite transmedia worlds, and what is it about these worlds that make them appealing to transmedia expansion?
  • You are famous for preaching the gospel of write quickly and write for the market. Can I just recommend to our audience a few of your books, including “5K words per hour” (I still use your app) and “Write to Market”? You’d find a lot of Tolkien fans frothing at the mouth with the thought that you could create a new world for a novel, and write the novel, within 21 days as you have done in past video series. What special considerations, or perhaps compromises, have to be made when worldbuilding so quickly?
  • How do you think the author’s who are self-published approach worldbuilding differently from traditionally published authors? Do commercial considerations impact worldbuilding decisions, if so, how?
  • What do you believe is the author’s role in the expansion of a successful transmedia world?
  • What kind of ownership do you believe an author has of the world if it becomes successful enough to be expanded upon in the fan-fiction world?
  • How do you feel about worldbuilding outside of the sci-fi/fantasy genre? Do you believe it’s an important consideration for authors in other genres or other mediums?
  • Do you have any other advice for transmedia worldbuilders?
