Update 3/30

Hello again! Ever since the successful book signing, my head has been filled with many ways to branch out and reach more people. I’m currently working on having a webcomic done on a pivotal scene in Dragonsoul, and also having character bios from both Tales of Ashkar and Dragonsoul on this blog complete with artwork.

On another front, I’m getting super close to finishing the memoir of my great grandfather. Once I’m done, I’ll be looking at getting an agent to go the traditional route. I think with nonfiction, I will have an easier time getting the attention of an agent.

‘Til next time.

Update 3/28

Hey guys, so on the back of the signing I want to begin a more aggressive approach to exposure, so I went ahead and made a twitter for Tales of Ashkar (I never thought I would ever use twitter).
 
Give me a follow and spread the word!
 

Update 3/25

The book signing was a huge success! I walked in with 17 copies and left with 3. Now, my books will be on the shelves at the Indigo in Barrhaven.
 
It’s time to seek out other bookstores and make my claim to fortune! Big thanks to everyone who made it out, and a special thanks to all those who bought an autographed copy!
 
Stay tuned for more updates.17553959_10208580445934991_5964434025788503955_n

I’M DOING A BOOK SIGNING!

This is a random, sudden surprise, but I will be doing a book signing next Saturday the 25th of March! I’m super excited to be doing my first event, and I will have copies of all three of my books. The signing will be at the Indigo bookstore in Barrhaven’s shopping center. Come and say hello!

The event is also posted on goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/event/show/1011410-fantasy-author-kayl-karadjian-book-signing?utm_medium=email&utm_source=copypasteevent

Share, share, share!

‘Till next time.


Update 3/2

So, it’s been quite a while since my latest update so this one’s gonna be a big one. In my previous posts I mentioned that my focus was back onto the third entry in my Tales of Ashkar series after the release of Dragonsoul.

Since then, I’ve actually picked up an additional project out of the blue, and it’s actually nonfiction. Strange it would seem, a fiction writer delving into the other side. But this project is dear to me, as it is a transcription of my great grandfather’s lifelong experiences that he wrote in a journal many years ago.

The most interesting, and most encompassing, thing he wrote in his journal was his experiences during the Armenian Genocide, which occurred mainly during 1915. Reading through his journal has given me a lot of insight into that era, and I can’t wait to release it. I’m aiming for sometime this summer, or even earlier.

Back onto fiction. I’m still working on Tales of Ashkar: Silent Requiem, and it is probable that I finish the rough draft it early summer with plenty of time to have it beta read and polished for a fall release. After I complete the rough draft I will shift focus to start on a Pizzolatto-inspired kaiju novel that has romance/erotic elements to it. It will definitely be a different direction and aimed at a more mature audience than my other stuff.

On the topic of Tales of Ashkar, I am happy to release the finished map of Terra–the continent of Ashkar that includes the regions Makka, Terra Nort, and Terra Sur, all in one map.

Lastly, I will be enrolling in Smashwords’s Read an Ebook Week promotion, where all three of my books will be free on Smashwords from March 5th until March 11th. You can find the links to all three below:
