You can read the first two chapters here: https://www.inkshares.com/books/emperor

Richard Evans is the writer behind the books from Raven Entertainment Studio. This will be the first book made exclusively for Inkshares.com .

We apologize for the lack of video. We are a superstitious lot who believe those things steal your soul.

EMPEROR was originally conceived as a comicbook series. The core concept revolves around a world of superheroes exploring the wonders of space. Imagine if the Marvel universe merged with Star Wars, for example.

Emperor Der Verge watched his world fall to alien invaders. After destroying the alien home world, he took Earth’s survivor’s aboard a space ship and sought out new worlds to conquer. What the all-powerful Emperor does not know is that there is a multiverse of danger out there and a new threat has arisen. After 500 years of conquest, the former superhero turned SuperGod will come face to face with a horror greater than even he could imagine.

This book is also part of their Space Opera contest, the winner of which gets published!

Inkshares: Who They Are

Tags

, , , , ,

I have a new project in the works through a company called Inkshares. Many of you may not have heard of this company, so I am posting their FAQ here.

Question: What is Inkshares?

We’re a book publisher that has readers, not agents or editors, decide what we publish. We publish any work that successfully hits a pre-order threshold on our platform. By “publish” we mean that we edit, design, print, distribute, and market books. You can find our funded books here. 

Question: How does it work?

Our process is simple: authors pitch, readers pre-order, and we publish. Any author can submit a proposal for a book. Once the project goes live, readers support the project by pre-ordering copies of the book. Once the 750 pre-order goal is hit, we start publishing: we assign authors an editor, a designer, and we handle all aspects of printing, distribution, and marketing once the manuscript is finished.

Question: What is the 250 pre-order goal?

At 250 pre-orders a project on Inkshares qualifies for the Quill collection, if the author so chooses. This includes an ISBN, light editing, limited distribution (including physical and digital on Amazon), and signed print-on-demand copies to all backers. If an author chooses Quill, they earn 50% royalties on all orders made after the 250 pre-order goal. At the 750 pre-order goal, the publishing process is the same as at any traditional publisher, including full editorial services, design, an offset print run, marketing, and distribution into bookstores nationwide.

You can check out the pitch for my book EMPEROR here: https://www.inkshares.com/books/emperor

If you already follow my work here, just go to the link and click follow there. If I can get all my followers on Facebook and WordPress to follow the link, I can easily reach the minimum required to get published. It’s all in your hands now, friends!

I created a special edition of White Zombie that contains only the stories I created, four in total. While all the other stories in the book were good, there were legal issues about reprinting them beyond that first edition. This WHITE edition is for my hardcore fans.

The Day the God of Music Died

Tags

, ,

I’ve never been one to get upset over the death of strangers, in fact I’ve even ridiculed people who suddenly burst into tears because a mediocre actor died. But this was David FUCKING Bowie and I am not ashamed to say that it brought tears to my eyes to read that he was gone.  Here am I sitting in my tin can. . . .

If you’ve ever read one of my books, you know how important Bowie is to the stories I’ve written, and the stories I will write in the future. Bowie didn’t just make music, Bowie was the voice of the universe, the soundtrack maker of the stars, leading us like an ancient God toward the light. Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do.

I’ve never read a book about Bowie, I know absolutely nothing about the life he led. I didn’t need to. It didn’t matter who David Robert Jones was, anymore than it matters who Richard David Evans is. All that matters is who you become, who you create, the person that speaks to the world. All that matters is the art, the persona, the voice that cries out against the injustice in the world. Often people will cite a famous celebrity as their reason for coming out, but Bowie has inspired me to do the exact opposite. It doesn’t matter what my sexuality REALLY is, it doesn’t matter what you believe about it, because it doesn’t matter to ME what label I wear. It is all just character performance, its all art and it means everything and nothing at all. Back in the 90’s when people would hear me playing Bowie they would ask “Isn’t he gay?” and every time I would answer “Who the hell cares?” You have to live your life the way you want, David Bowie created an avatar for himself that lived and breathed in the world like the rest of us, but was, like all Gods, always slightly above. Ziggy was as real as the real David, as was Jareth, all of them were the same man and we never questioned it because it was fucking REAL and we accepted that. Raven Heisenberg would not even exist if this man had not given me the courage to wear a different skin. He was the Nazz, with god-given ass.

You did it, kid. You changed the world and all of time and space will remember it.

Not Sure What’s Next. . . 2016 Edition

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Normally after I finish a book there is always a “What’s Next?” post. Sometimes I follow through and actually complete the next book on the list, but most of the time I say one thing and end up writing something completely different. This time, however, I don’t have anything else lined up.

I don’t have writers block, that’s not something I believe in. There are tons of half finished stories I have lying around that I could finish. It’s not about just finishing books though, there are things I want to say, people I want to reach. I’ve done horror and science fiction and while the idea of writing a fantasy novel is still alive, I am not sure if I am ready to delve into that world right now.

So here is a brief list of what I plan to do in 2016, which could change at any moment if I get inspired to go in another direction:

For possible June release: PUNCH: A Romance Novel

PUNCH is the story of a billionaire vigilante who takes in a young man after his parents are murdered. As they seek justice, they begin to develop feelings for each other. PUNCH is a love story between two damaged, driven, men who are determined to bring down the criminal organization known as the London Underground Circus.punch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then for Halloween 2016 , I should have The Haunted Oz done. Haunted Oz is a fantasy/horror themed version of the Wizard of Oz, with a tough farm girl Dorothy and her black horse Toto forced to gather an army to face the Wicked Witch of the West. The land of Oz has become corrupted, the land twisted into an evil reflection of the two witches who rule it. Follow the yellow brick road. . . to freedom!

A new Legion: Unleashed book called FUTURE SCIENCE KILL is also in the works. A laboratory and theme park that manufactures superhumans has been locked tight. Inside, a deadly virus has spread, turning people into flesh-hungry monsters. One man is trapped inside, powerless against the enhanced super-powered zombies. When the Legion shows up, it looks as if the day has been saved. But the Legion has broken all ties with the government. What is their new objective and is there any way to save the people trapped inside the Future Science Plaza? This will probably be my last zombie story for a while.

The future. 

From the first moment Oberon O’baron laid eyes on the robot, he was in love. With just a glance the petite artificial girl set his heart aflame, sending him into an obsessive frenzy. As the old-fashioned Englishman struggles with his new found passion, he is led into a world of political agendas, futuristic vice and sexual frustration. Oberon is obsessive, cowardly, self-loathing and weak but his mind is sharp and his dedication unwavering. All the pleasures he had denied himself, all that he had missed out on could be reclaimed. All he needs is HER. 

The Corrupter is a science fiction tale of obsession, set in a world where everyone is watched and nothing is private.

Print and Digital are now available from Amazon. It will also be available from other online retailers on August 1st.
