Earlier this week, I officially announced that my novel Fragments: Alora’s Tear, Volume I would be published this summer. In the same post, I also promised more information shortly. The response I’ve received so far has been wonderful. Thanks for every share, like, favorite, retweet, and comment that you sent along. Each one means a lot.
In the process of creating the necessary files, researching proper book design techniques, and generally learning about self-publishing, I established Barham Ink: the company name under which all of my personally published works will appear. Along with that, I spent a great deal of time and care creating an online home for Barham Ink and the books that will soon appear there.
One of the things that I found incredibly important in making this site is that it include more than just gigantic links that help direct readers to places where they might purchase books (there’ll be some of those, too). Specifically, readers should be able to find information about writing, the process of creating and publishing one’s own work, and of course, information about the world, characters, and details of the Alora’s Tear series.
So without belaboring the point too much, today I’m announcing BarhamInk.com. Much of the aforementioned material is available on the site already (day one!). And anything that doesn’t appear there is only left out because it might compromise the upcoming story (no spoilers!).
Please, take a moment to have a look around. I’d love to hear your comments. Twitter’s great for this sort of thing. Find me there @natebarham. Also, the contact form on BarhamInk.com would be a great way to test one of the shiny new website features.
Special thanks to Benjamin Brooks for his notes on the site design, Isis Sousa for the brilliant artwork (no cover reveal just yet, but the world map is there if you look for it), and my brother Alex Barham for some of the site’s stunning photography.
Next up, cover art.
