    All of my recent activity is about to be rewarded. I hope and pray. Quest into Hidden Realms has a cover, and I've gone through it line by line a few more times. More beta readers have read through it and clued me in on issues.

    I'm waiting for the full-sized version of the cover to be delivered. Once the cover maker gives me her paypal info, and I send the money, I'll get the full-sized cover.

    And then I publish. The Amazon blurb/description is written. I've decided on the two categories I want to publish this fantasy based LitRPG in. Seven keywords chosen.

    My trigger finger is a-itching. Kindle Unlimited readers are waiting with bated breath... Okay, not really.

    This is a much longer book, and not erotic in any way. No on screen sex. Some flirting. Lots of action and humor, and leveling up, buying spells, winning dropped items. And a dragon.

    Wish me luck. I need it.

    Thanks. I just hit publish. Now the constant clicking to see if it's gone live yet begins.

    Ah, the glamorous life of an indie author.

    Okay! It's live! Everyone do the Snoopy happy dance. The book will be 99 cents at least through this weekend. It is in KU.

    The game just got serious.

    Bricklayer by day, Level 35 Battle-mage by night, Eddie Kilroy lives to play Realm of Battle as Killum, escaping the tedium of his job. Learning of a secret dungeon hidden in a vast swamp, Killum and his friends charge off to challenge it. After a grueling running battle with goblins, orcs, barbarians, and other fell creatures, they win through to the end. Only no treasure awaits the victors. Instead, they find an ordinary altar, but one which asks if they want to enter the Hidden Realms. Duh. Of course they do! Who doesn’t want to level up in the Game?

    Big mistake. They can see no way back, no way to log out. Now, trapped in the Game, they face higher and more dreadful consequences – and all that with no certainty that they might ever return.

    This book's rank reached #1128 in Amazon yesterday. That's the highest ranked book I've ever had. I think it just got Also boughts yesterday, too. So I'm excited. I'm hoping to break the #1000 barrier on this one. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Any chance I could get a short interesting or funny scene (3,000 words or less) from Quest into Hidden Realms?
    I'm an admin for a facebook group "Soundbooth Theater Live" where every so often Jeff Hays does live narrations that are requested, and I thought it'd be really cool if he could do a piece from your book?
