Splashdown News: March

Kia ora and welcome to the Splashdown news for March! You'll notice it's coming some time after the beginning of the month, and there's a VERY exciting reason for this which you'll find as you read on...but first comes our new release for this month:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, reality invaded the world...
When the presence of reality emerges from under the fa├žade of perception, lives are changed. Forever. A mystical ring binds Sisko to bless others with miracles and avoid using its power for himself, which would lead to a curse. With his friends Josh the wizard and Seth the leader of a gang of thieves, Sisko explores the emerging reality through his travels and adventures.
Journey with Sisko as reality’s presence confronts and changes the greedy, the killers, the trapped, the demonic, and Sisko himself....Reality has dawned, and no one will be the same.

Reality's Dawn is now available direct from Splashdown, and also other online retailers including Amazon Kindle.

We're running a cool contest on this series: Buy the first book and upload a photo of yourself with it to the Splashdown Facebook page. We'll pick the most interesting shots to win a copy of Reality's Ascent, the second book in the series, just as soon as it comes out in May - so get creative!


Work continues on our new Supernatural/Paranormal imprint. We've got some amazing reading lined up for you! There'll be more news on that very soon, so keep your eye on our web presence.
In the meantime, don't forget to check out the Splashdown Darkwater website and teaser trailer:



Avenir Eclectia is a brand-new project from Splashdown Books, officially launching today! We've been working on it behind the scenes for quite some time now, so it's really exciting to present it in public. It's a multi-author microfiction project, based in a world with flavors of science fiction, fantasy and supernatural genres - yes, all at once. A space station with wizards, criminals, children and madmen. Sea-dwelling angels. Underwater cities, ore mines and beetle hunters - something for everyone!
You'll want to sign up for email updates to receive regular small slices of story - most no longer than 200 words! Head on over now and read the first story: "Cool, Smooth Metal."

All the artwork for Avenir Eclectia has been provided by none other than Eleon a.k.a. Michael L. Rogers, and he's also begun work on a fabulous soundtrack to go along with the stories. You can hear that at his Avenir Eclectia album page:

That's all the Splashdown news for now, but you've probably heard about the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. While I live quite far away, I'm still impacted by this national tragedy and you can read my thoughts in my post at International Christian Fiction Writers.

Thanks for reading!
