I’m very pleased to announce that my first full-length YA Fantasy novel, Game ALive, is up on Amazon. Up until this point, I’ve focused on short stories, and branching out into longer material has been a great experience with regards to getting more in-depth with character development and world building. It’s also been great having an active fan base to help me out along the way, providing inspiration and excellent feedback. To celebrate its release and to help spread the word, I’m offering review copies (read on down below for how to get a free copy).
Here are the details:
From author Trip Ellington comes the debut of an immersive new fantasy novel. In the near future, virtual reality games are indistinguishable from the real world. Players can take on the role of a star quarterback or rule as the king of a virtual kingdom.
Thirteen-year-old Jake prefers to spend his free time building Xaloria, a virtual world he created from scratch where he and his two best friends, Des and Kari, spend their afternoons completing quests and collecting treasure.
However, all in Xaloria is not what Jake expected. When Jake discovers that the world he built is growing and changing on its own, he and his friends uncover a secret that could change the world forever…
INSTRUCTIONS FOR A REVIEW COPY
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I’m an independent self-published author. As a result, I have to rely on my fans much more heavily for raising awareness about my work since I don’t have the marketing budget of the bigger publishers. However, I’m not complaining in the least bit. I believe taking this route has allowed me to stay much closer to my fans and I have truly been amazed at your dedication in helping a new author find his voice in the book world.
To get a free review copy, simply email me at trip (at) tripellington.com with the store you shop at (Amazon, B&N, Kobo, etc.) so that I can send you the book in the correct format. I’d love for you to read the book and provide an honest review at any of the locations it’s on sale, or at Goodreads as well.
It’s been quite a ride and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your efforts.
Until next time,
