The store is just about ready for its official launch, which is coming this Monday (2nd May 2016).
Almost everything is now in place, from packaging to shipping accounts, Paypal to delivery labels, returns process to feedback systems!
And of course... stock.
Disappointingly the T-shirts have not yet arrived, but they will hopefully be here in time for the grand opening on Monday. This line is being introduced in an ash grey colour, and the intention is to also provide 'Blood Red', 'MAGA Green', and 'Imperial Blue'.
On the topic of additional colours: the keen-eyed may notice that all product pages now have a comments box. This box can be used for requesting alternate versions of products; all we ask is that star ratings are used responsibly (i.e. by those people who actually made a purchase.)
There's much more to tell! Click "read more" to... read more.
Up until now, the Armada Wars paperbacks have been available in two editions: the standard edition, and the cheaper "compressed" edition.
The thinking here is now... nobody wants to pay more for the same book. The last two novels will be prohibitively expensive at the 12-point text size anyway, and having just one edition will simplify matters.
The larger, more expensive paperbacks will therefore be vanishing next month. If you want copies, the time to buy them is now!
Huge news! The long-awaited official Armada Wars store front is almost ready to launch, and it will be bursting into life very shortly.
This will be a six-month trial, to test out a variety of things such as suppliers, business processes, costing, and so on. It will hopefully be a very smooth operation.
So what can you expect?
One of the things most often requested by you on both the Armada Wars Facebook page, and in the official Facebook Fan Group, was posters. And boy will you have them! Big, shiny posters, printed at A1 size on delightful silk paper. If all you care about is posters, feel free to jump right down this specific wormhole.
And to make things a bit special, how about signed copies of the novels? Just pick the relevant option on the page for any paperback.
Future additions to the store are sure to include more clothing (both merchandise-style, and "in universe" style), stationery, and other limited paperback editions. If there is anything else you'd like to see in the store, the time to comment is NOW.
One of the traditions of the Armadaverse is the end-of-year reveal for the title of the next book.
Let's do something different.
Share the linked post on Facebook. When it reaches 1000 shares, the title of the final volume of the current story will be revealed, more than six months early!
The synopses for two upcoming episodes have now been made public, here and on Goodreads.
You may have read the synopsis already for the imminent novella I Dream of Damastion, which is due within the next month. Added this week was the synopsis for the second novella — The Granite Whistle — which also expands the third novel in the current story.
Sneaked onto the site at the same time was the book page for the fourth novel in the series, which also includes that all important, panic-and-joy-inducing synopsis. That's right: you can get your teaser fix for From Shattered Stars right now!
