The Perimeter Defense series by Michael Atamanov is now on Kindle Unlimited program. If you’ve been waiting to try it out, now you can.

https://www.facebook.com/magicdomebooks/photos/a.1224844880864213/2696690713679615/

The author Warlock: Reign of Blood contacted the podcast to let us know he was doing a promotion for his novel in preparation of book 2 coming out in the future.


Edwin here, author of Warlock: Reign of Blood. I'm giving away free copies via Bookfunnel at the moment and wondered if it's something you'd like to share with your listeners/viewers on this week's vodcast?


The giveaway is limited to 100 copies and I have 50 left as of today.

S.L. Rowland, author of Pangea Online series and Sentenced to Troll,  was interviewed by the JVJ podcast recently.

Jeffrey Falcon Logue, author of the Slime Dungeon Chronicles, has released an update on the side scroller game he’s making based on that property. It has a variety of monsters, new locations, new slime powers, and some pretty great music.

https://youtu.be/EM8ftuBjNFU

Falcon also showed off some early cover art for the 2nd book in his new Dungeon War series.

If you haven’t heard of ebook.bike, it is a website that lets its users post pirated ebooks for anyone to download. Not only do they list files, but actively promote popular pirated titles for people to download. The piracy site has a ton of authors including including many LitRPG ebooks. Travis Robert McCrea, the site founder and manager, has also regularly been accused of ignoring Take Down and DMCA notices sent by authors.

His response to the accusations?

“If people don’t think that I am upholding my duties as a web developer or the website owner to prevent copyrighted material from entering my website ... take me to court,” he said. “I’m confident that I’m upholding the letter of the law.”

(https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/books/2019/03/09/authors-irritated-by-smug-defence-of-vancouver-website-they-say-is-stealing-their-work.html )

Well, John Van Stry, author of the Portals of Infinity series, Valen’s Legacy series, and Days of Future Past series, has had enough and is suing the founders and managers of that site. He’s already invested over $19K of his own money in the legal battle with piracy site eBook.Bike.

Now, John Van Stry has started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover future legal costs associated with the battle and readers and authors have responded. He’s raised $20K of the $30K goal in just a few days, which reflects the sheer frustration that authors have had with the site.

On a related note,  Travis Robert McCrea tried to also do a GoFundMe to cover his side of the legal expenses but it was shut down, likely because it violated some terms of service or because of user complaints

You can read a little about many author’s issues with McCrea and his responses at the link below.

Charles Dean has issued a challenge. If his favorite fan group, Spoiled Rotten Readers gets 300 followers by the end of April, he will do some special performances that will be live broadcast for all to enjoy. In his own words:

If we reach 300 members for spoiled rotten readers by the end of April, I shall pull a Chris Johns and narrate / sing and little. I’ll try to rope Jeff Hays and Annnie into the narration, so we can do a mini play with one of the books. Don’t worry about them finding out, they ignore tags.

The group is currently at 251 of the needed 300 followers. So, if you’re like me and want to see the author of War Aeternus and the Bathrobe Knight do some fun skits and songs, please join the group. Full disclosure: Charles is a friend of mine and I really just want to see him do silly things live on the air.

LitRPG News

A quick congratulations to Michael Chatfield for his amazing launch of the 4th Realm last week. It broke through the top 100 on all of Amazon for a number of days. I think it hit 86 or even lower at one point. But it just goes to show how well a LitRPG novel can do, even if it’s not on KU.

Michael Chatfield, author of the Emerialia series and The 10th Realm series, did a Facebook Live stream this week where he answered fan questions and made some announcements. He claimed full responsibility for the spelling errors in the latest book, the 4th Realm, as a product of him writing changes right before release.

Michael also announced that he’ll be putting books 1-3 of the 10 Realm series into the Kindle Unlimited program for 90 days, starting April 1st. He’s doing this to help out fans that have been begging him to put his stuff back on KU so they can afford to read it.

It’s a limited time project, so starting April 1st go get those books, cause they won’t be there forever.

I hope things are going well still. I wanted to give the podcast a heads up that Login Accepted will be free this four day weekend to build up some traction again before Login Re;Coded comes out mid- to late May. - RJ Triveri

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 163 of the LitRPG podcast. For the full show notes visit us at: https://litrpgpodcast.com/litrpg-podcast-163


I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have 7 new reviews just for you.


New Releases and Reviews:

Absolute Zero (Adam Online Book #1) LitRPG Series (07:20)

Good sci-fi RPG action-adventure here. But be warned that while there are lots of story threads started here, there are relatively few resolutions.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2YbjrcC

The Fourth Realm (The Ten Realms Book 4)  (14:25)

The story still has all the good elements I’ve enjoyed and this time lots more large scale action.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2SRPFFQ

Vindication (The Alchemic Weaponeer - Book 1)  (20:09)

It’s not bad by any means, it just didn’t hit good for me either because there weren’t any real surprises in the story.

Score: 6 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2IJa7ch

The Idle System (A LitRPG series Book 3): The Birth (26:01)

New companion, but the same Idle System leveling stuff from the previous books and there are lots of new abilities, skills, and powers that come into play and train.

Score: 7.5 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2T9sJCh

Comet Rider: A Scifi Lit-RPG Series (29:12)

A decent sci-fi action story with some spaceships. But it's NOT LitRPG.

Score: 4 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2ucgb2B

Lydia: Awakening (32:03)

A bit of a rough beginning, but improves and gets pretty good as it goes on.

Score: 7.4 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2U2m9BO

The Mayor of Noobtown: A LitRPG Adventure (37:00)

A very entertaining story that has a snarky wit, good banter, good action, and an intelligent use of gamer knowledge to exploit the systems described. Fun stuff.

Score: 7.7 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2VZs7Rd

Now with a bit of town building.

Score: 7.5 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2EFQQp5

Quest Accepted (XP: Unlocked Book One) A LitRPG Fantasy Series

Some good parts, but the story felt forced and while LitRPG it had more of a portal fantasy vibe.

https://amzn.to/2T3MeA7

Code of the Necromancer : A LitRPG Series (Book 2)

Light LitRPG, but good storytelling and world building.

Score: 7.3 out of 10

LitRPG News

Dave Wilmarths upcoming book had a slight name change. The title is now Shadow Sun Survival , while it was Dark Sun Survival before. It is still going to release March the 5th.

Jeffrey Falcon Logue, author of the Slime Dungeon Chronicles, has been working on a slime platformer based on that LitRPG world. He announced this week that he is almost done with the new demo which will have a new boss. Also, that he’s setup social media for the game project. So, go follow/like/whatever if you want to support him and get updates on the game.

https://twitter.com/SlimeEvo

https://www.instagram.com/slimeevo_game/

https://www.facebook.com/SlimeEvo/


Daniel Schinhofen announced this week that he finally got his merchandising setup. He is selling t-shirts and hats with images and logos of his various novel properties if you want to go buy them.

https://schinhofenbooks.myshopify.com/

There is a new LitRPG reviewer, Lavelle Jackson, on YouTube who publishes under the name LitRPG Re-Roll, just wanted to give a shout out to the reviewer. He’s taken the time to not only read but put together his thoughts on the story and game mechanics. He’s only done a few reviews so far but I’m sure he plans to do more. Good luck to you man and keep putting up those video reviews!

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKDmJTWb-GzmGBo-usWzPnA


Mountaindale Press is taking submissions for an anthology set in the Divine Dungeon Universe. There are a bunch of details you’ll have to be aware of including a deadline for submission of March 25th. But this is a chance to write in your favorite story universe.

Details:

☑️Four stories (besides mine) will be selected for the anthology

☑️Stories should be 8,000-12,000 words

☑️Stories must be original

☑️Authors are limited to one submission

☑️Stories MUST fit within the established world

☑️Stories must follow a character C rank or below – one that you create or a canon character, but if writing about a member of Dale’s party you must stick to their back story

☑️Stories should have little to no sexual content

☑️Because these stories are set in the Divine Dungeon world, unaccepted submissions cannot be published for monetary compensation of any form by the author

☑️Stories should have a strong ending (i.e. no cliffhanger)

All stories will be read by me and several other super fans. The four stories we like the best will be published and monetary compensation for the contributing authors discussed once selected! Deadline for submission is March 25th. Email your submission in using this link and under "reason for message" select "anthology": https://www.mountaindalepress.com/contact . Looking forward to reading your work!!

I’m speculating a little here, but this also may be a way for Mountaindale press to check out talent for an expanded universe too. Recently, the publishers of Viridian Gate Online released several expanded universe novels. Stories set in the VGO universe but written by new authors with original characters. However, they started with anthology submissions too. Mountaindale Press might be doing something similar. I don’t know that they are, this is speculation.

The interview with Dan Sugralinov, author of Level UP series,  I did last week has been edited so that the parts where translation occurs is a more streamlined. But please check it out, it was a really fun and insightful conversation. We talked about Dan’s writing process, how he balances writing and family time, inspiration for his stories, and how when he was a kid he wrote an alternate 3rd Lord of the Rings novel cause in Russia they only translated two of the books.

Also, note that Dan actually sent in written responses to all the pre-interview questions I sent him so you have the unique opportunity to read his answers. Even a few to questions he didn’t get asked in the video interview.

LitRPG Podcast 147 - Author Interview: Charles Dean

LitRPG Podcast 147 - Author interview: Charles Dean

Dec. 16th, 2018

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 147 of the LitRPG podcast. I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  

Today I have the pleasure of talking to Charles Dean, author of such amazing LitRPG series as:

The Bathrobe Knight  (https://amzn.to/2CeZt7D ),

Merchant of Tiqpa (https://amzn.to/2Bkpn8j ),

and War Aeternus (https://amzn.to/2QAwnIS ).

Now Charles and I have been friends for a while. He and I first started talking when I made a error with the name of one of his series in the review I gave it on the LitRPG Podcast recommendation page. I called it the Bathroom Knight, and he e-mailed me and pointed out that while a story about a a plumber who fought evil would be great, the series was called the Bathrobe Knight. We’ve been friends ever since.

Charles is hands down not only one of the saltiest guys I know, he’s also one of the kindest human beings I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. He’s gone out of his way to help me personally become a better writer by beta reading with brutal honesty and even extended writing resources to me.

As a writer, he’s one of the best in the community, and people love his LitRPG stuff, everything he’s published has an average review score of no less than 4 stars and often it’s closer to 5:

Jessie: “As I sit here writing this review in my own bathrobe, I must smile. This is a good read. “

Mike Garrett: “My biggest disappointment was the lack of available sequel.”

D. Miller: “All hail the Augustus, God of Alcohol and Bacon!”

David: Absolutely loved the Merchant of Tiqpa”


So, thank you so much for being on the podcast man!!
