AUTHOR VLOG – MORINGA’S MISSION

Here is a short video showing my other passion; animal rescue. Moringa’s Mission / Los Ayudantes de Animales Republica Dominicana​ do a lot here, in the Dominican Republic, to help the local animal population and Dee Morrison works tirelessly to rescue and treat any animal in distress. She lives the life of an animal rescuer and Moringa’s is a charity well worth supporting. 🙂

AUTHOR VLOG – MY JOURNEY

My journey to being published. There are areas here that might be of interest to all writers not matter which path they take to getting their book into the public eye. I talk more about the process of having a publisher behind you rather than having to do it all yourself.

Cover Reveal – Gerald and the amulet of Zonrach – by Carl Hackman

It is finally here, the time to reveal the cover for my debut novel, ‘Gerald and the amulet of Zonrach’. I just want to say a huge thanks to Sean Ricks who painted this awesome cover, and my publisher, Immortal Works, for the final design which will adorn my book on its release May 16th.

It has been a long, and sometimes bumpy, road to get to this stage and was it worth it? Without a shadow of a doubt. The experiences I’ve had since signing the contract are nothing short of amazing.

So, without further ado here is the cover for Gerald 🙂

Below is a poster for the launch party in four weeks time. This will be held at a local bookstore as well as online.

The kindle version for Gerald is also already available for pre-order on Amazon and the paperback version will soon follow.

AUTHOR VLOG – FOUNTAIN PENS

In this video I talk about writing by hand using my old fountain pens. After watching several videos by Michael Jecks I started looking for a new pen to replace my old ones that don’t really perform that well.

Obviously I won’t be able to acquire one of the really nice ones that Michael uses, but I am sure I can find one to suit my budget that will give me many hours of writing enjoyment. A cup of coffee, a comfy armchair and my notebook and fountain pen. That is a wonderful way to write 🙂

Gerald and the amulet of Zonrach – ARCs

Hi all,

The launch date for Gerald and the amulet of Zonrach is rushing towards us. Only five weeks now until my debut novel hits the bookshelves.

Electronic ARCs (Advanced Review Copies) are now available for those who would like to read it early and post a review. It would be really appreciated if you can sign up at http://www.immortal-works.com/arc-signup/ and leave a review on Goodreads, or anywhere else that we can link to.

The ARC is available in epub, mobi, and pdf formats.

Many thanks for following this journey, it’s an exhilarating ride. Share this to as many people as you can think of 🙂

Launch Party

Six weeks today before the launch of Gerald and the amulet of Zonrach. I’ll be holding an event locally. If you want copies for me to sign on the day I’ll have pre-order forms coming soon. This will enable my publisher to ensure copies arrive here for the event. I’ll be giving out bookmarks with each copy on the day.

Dress up as your favorite fantasy character. There is nothing like singing Karaoke afterwards as wizard or witch 🙂

Please share so that we can make this a fun event.
