John here! Today I’m jumping in to our usual schedule of world building posts to share something absolutely amazing:
The new fan trailer for Blood Dawn!
This video was made by one of my closest collaborators on Inkshares, Cara (“A.C.”) Weston, author of She Is the End. About two months ago, when several authors on Inkshares came together and expressed interest in helping me reach 750 pre-orders, Cara offered to put together a fan video featuring several enthusiasts speaking about what they love about Blood Dawn.
Cara speaks in it about her love for dragons and compared it to Dune. The other speakers in the video are also Inkshares author:
- Joseph Asphahani (The Animal in Man, winner of the Sword & Laser 2 contest)
- C. Brennecke (Seven Shards: The Colors of Wine)
- Matthew Isaac Sobin (The Last Machine in the Solar System, winner of the Sword & Laser 2 contest)
- Craig Munroe (The Bones of the Past, winner of the Sword & Laser 2 contest)
- Michael Sebby (The Inhabitants: An Unremembered Life)
- Paul Inman (Ageless, winner of the Sword & Laser 1 contest)
In addition, Tyler Sparrow, a beta reader who has read the entire first draft and graciously provided me with helpful notes (Tyler, I hope you know you’re getting special mention in the acknowledgements of the book!), offered his take on the book.
This video is just so amazing and I am so excited to add it absolutely everywhere, so please share it and help spread the word.
