Unofficial Minecraft Fiction with Pirates and Ninjas

mc_book1_test4Does anyone out there like Unofficial Minecraft fiction? Since working on Minecraft Story Mode at Telltale Games, I’ve been reading a lot of this stuff to see what kids are into — the books are EVERYWHERE, and supposedly sell quite well.

So I thought I’d share this really cool one – the first in a series, that works for lovers of Minecraft AND people who don’t know anything about it.

It’s got pirates, adventure, and rumor has it NINJAS will show up. All fun stuff 🙂

Here’s the book description on Amazon, where it’s on preorder for $0.99 or get it #FREE on #Instafreebie (by signing up for the newsletter)

Write Like Game of Thrones

Here I am to share with you THE SLOAN ZONE episode where I talk about how Game of Thrones inspired me to write, and I read a small passage that I think does a wonderful job of showing how amazing of an author George R.R. Martin is. Enjoy!

 

Want more, and three free books (including LAND OF GODS, the first book in the Falls of Redemption trilogy)?

Chapter Five

Allie sat behind the large desk, feeling smaller than ever. Her dad was going to kill her if he heard about this. Her only hope was that he would be too distracted with whatever he had wanted to tell her, that her acting out at school wouldn’t bother him.

“Sooo…” Principal Eisner started out. She paced behind the desk, frowning at Allie. Finally she sat, her fingers forming a steeple.

“You don’t understand…” Allie started, but Principal Eisner held up a finger.

Chapter Four

By the time Allie found history class, she was feeling horrible. As always happened in the end, her conscience had won. That darn gnawing feeling deep down where she tried to hide it had managed to bubble up and eat away at her. She could see her mom looking at her with those judging eyes, wondering how Allie could have let her down. Her parents had taught her better than this and she knew it. (more…)
