First of all, happy new year, everyone!
With the release of Book I's Portuguese edition and my trip to Comic Con, we ended the year with a blast! December was a very full month, but a very good one as well. To start off the year, I've got a full overhaul of the website; hope it runs smoothly.
Check out below the trailer for my presence @ComicCon2017, as well as a few select photos with some amazing cosplayers that were kind enough to stop by (thank you so much!).
Goal for 2018: getting work done on having Book II's Portuguese edition ready for sale!
Greetings fellow readers and writers,
It's been a bit of a long silence, but I've got two great pieces of news:
- From the 14th to the 17th of December I'll be attending Comic Con Portugal 2017, promoting and selling autographed copies of Demon's Blood Book I and Book II. Be sure to drop by and check out this amazing event and everything it embodies: the exaltment of our beloved pop culture.
- Spiral of Deception is well underway to have a Portuguese edition. It's amazing to finally be able to outright anounce that the translated edition will be coming soon. Look forward to more news on the subject!
Very good news today!
I'm basically done with writing Book II: Penance By Fate. In about a week it'll go to print, and by December I'll have it ready for shipping!
I'll be having a book presentation at Fnac Coimbra by the 17th of December, see you all there!
Down below, check out a preview of the amazing book cover designed by Omar Diogo, at Veludo & Mentol!
Greetings and a very happy new year, everyone!
2015 is behind us, and with 2016 comes a new year resolution of having Book II - Penance by Fate finished and ready for publishing by the end of the year!
Writing has been coming along nicely and steadily and I can safely state that I'm officially past the middle point in the story.
Below, for your reading pleasure, you can find a small, Book II spoiler-free, excerpt from a chapter that I really enjoyed writing, with an intense conversation between two characters whose true identities will yet remain to be unveiled.
I have also updated the gallery with some new promotional material, so do check it out for some amazing character promos!
Happy 2k15 readers and writers alike!
After quite a bunch of hours spent in subbing work, the interview is ready for your viewing pleasure!
Check it out below ;)
And now, to get back to Book II, which has been missing me sorely!
After a couple weeks of time off, I'm signing in to say that Central Comics Fest went really well!
Despite not having an enormous crowd, the event was a breeze and I managed to sell most of the signed copies I had with me. But even more importantly, I believe I got some very interested readers acquainted with Demon's Blood, and I really hope everyone enjoyed the T-shirts and promotional material I handed out.
On other news, below is the interview I had with GeekFreak, for RUC, a few weeks ago. Check it out for some Q&A about Demon's Blood: Spiral of Deception! (English Subs should be up and running in a few days, sorry for the delay).
RUC - Entrevista com Emanuel Silva autor do livro Demon's Blood
The 2nd giveaway has ended, once again with over 1000 entrances, and the signed books are on their way to the two lucky winners!
On the first weekend of August, Central Comics Fest is taking place at Porto, Portugal, and I will be having a book presentation there, as well as a small booth to sell signed copies to interested readers and give out some promo material!
You can check out the event schedule right here.
On other news, as announced on the main page, I will be answering some questions from RUC's Geek Freak cast, on their show soon. You can catch the show at 16 o'clock, on the 28th of July, or you may also listen online at Geek Freak's mixcloud right here.
Lastly, I'll leave you with a sample of the promotional material I'll have with me for the convention. Thanks again to Tiago Meirinha for the amazing artwork!
So, the book presentation went really well, you can check out a bunch of pictures here, and the trailer in the main page. Hopefully, soon it will bear fruit.
The giveaway ending on the same day reached over 1000 entrants, and so, as promised, I have started a second one. Anyone not lucky enough to have won the first time around, just click below to enter for another chance. As for the three lucky winners, really hope they enjoy the read, and I will be expecting to hear their honest reviews.
Only a couple days left to end the giveaway, and we're slightly over 400 requests!
Anyone interested in a free signed copy of Demon's Blood: Book I - Spiral of Deception's revised edition, don't forget to enter for a chance to win!
Sunday, the 12th of July I will be having a book signing and presentation at Fnac Coimbra, and at the end of the day the winners of the giveaway will be known. If all goes well, monday I'll be shipping the books!
The Goodreads giveaway is going well, already past the 200 requests!
Posting to announce that if the entrees number goes past 500, I will be holding a second giveaway so a couple of extra interested readers can get a signed copy or their own!
Enter away and good luck!
