Seeds of Corruption, the fourth book in the Awakened series, will be released in the next month or so. Many readers will be happy to discover that Adair has a prominent role in this next installment. To ensure the best reader-experience, it is critical that you understand Adair's transition between the ancient and modern worlds, described in scenes scattered throughout the first three books.
However, if you read the first three books prior to November of 2012, you might have missed the updated content published with the second editions. I posted here about how to update the content on your Kindle. To make it even easier, I also posted the new chapters for Book One here, for Book Two here, and Book Three here.
If you haven't already done so, now is a great time to brush-up on your Awakened knowledge and dive back into the experience by rereading the first three books.
If you haven't read the first book of the prequel series, pick up a copy of Incarnation and immerse yourself in the backstory to gain a deeper understanding of what Kael is up against.
For those loyal readers who've already done all these things, and are waiting impatiently for Seeds of Corruption: The Awakened Book Four, hold on tight--it's going to be a bumpy ride!

In my last post I revealed the new cover artwork for The Awakened series.

A week ago, I announced on my Facebook page that I was working on new cover art for The Awakened Series. Well, it's time to reveal what I've been doing...
Though we've all been told not to judge a book by its cover, everyone does it anyway...even if only at a subconscious level. As a publisher, I'm continually looking for ways to broaden the audience for my novels. Updating the cover artwork allows at least the possibility of reaching a new group of readers who might not have noticed these books before.
Now, let's hope it works!

I just finished updating my manuscript for Book 4 with inputs from an editor whom I've worked with since last year. Ronda Swolley applied her skills to Incarnation, as well as the second editions of the first three Awakened books. Her editing encompasses everything from spelling, punctuation, and grammar to the occasional high-level observation of logical inconsistency.
If you are in need of an editor, or know someone who is, I encourage you to contact Ronda.

With Book 4 of the Awakened series releasing in June (or sooner if I can manage it), I’d like to get the promotional ball rolling now.
I’m offering an autographed, edit copy of Book 4 (coil-bound, printed, with annotations) to whoever “Shares” my Facebook page and gets the most new “Likes” between now and the book’s release. I’m also making the same offer for recommendations on my Twitter profile.
There are some nifty ways of tracking referrals, but they involve adding code to websites and other things that I don’t have time for at the moment. So, if you’ll just let me know (through a post or a message) at the end of the contest which friends you referred, I’ll tally the results.
If you don’t know how to recommend someone on Twitter, here is a good video tutorial. If you don’t know how to “Share” a page on Facebook, here are some instructions.
Good luck and thanks for your help!

Starting next Friday (3/8/13), the Kindle edition of my novel Incarnation will be FREE on Amazon. This is a limited time offer, expiring at midnight the following Tuesday (3/12/13). If you haven't already read it, this will be a perfect time to take advantage of the FREE offer and to tell everyone you know.
Here's a short description of Incarnation and what readers are saying about it.
Since the ages before time was measured, the angelic races have existed. Unseen by our eyes, they move through creation, shaping our world, sustaining our existence, and battling demonic hordes. But the war is changing; the battle lines are expanding into new frontiers and the next epoch is emerging.
Seven hundred years after the first humans were exiled from their home, their descendants have pushed eastward into a prehistoric wilderness. In a land shrouded by mist and superstition, primitive tribes struggle to establish new civilizations, unaware that their world is about to change forever.
Weary from unceasing conflict, Sariel—legendary warrior of the Myndarym—crosses into the Temporal Realm in search of the only one who can bring him peace. But he is not the first; others have already begun their inhabitation. As the dominance of their kingdom spreads, threatening to engulf all of humanity, Sariel finds himself standing between his own kind and the one he loves and must embrace the life he abandoned in order to secure her freedom.
In this riveting prequel to the Amazon bestselling Awakened series, Jason Tesar sets in motion a sweeping fantasy epic birthed at the very foundations of humanity when our prehistoric world collided with supernatural forces, spawning an age of mythological creatures and heroes.
