The First Empire Limited ARC Winners have been notified

A while ago I announced I would do a giveaway of 5 VERY limited editions of a VERY early edition of Rhune (first book of the The First Empire).  By early I mean essentially the book in its beta state.  I've done a drawing and the winners are:

  • Beta readers drawing (1 of 44) - Michael Coward
  • Goodreads Giveaway (2 of 6,475) - Tammie Venne & Gary Vanicek
  • Dark Room Members (1 of 943) - Dawn from Oceanside NY
  • First Empire Mailing List sign-up - David Quist
I've already heard back from some of the winners, and the others have 1 week to respond before I pick someone else from the list.  Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to everyone else for entering / participating.  If you would like to be eligible for future such giveaways, here are some links you can use to sign up.
  • Request to join the Dark Room (a secret - private Goodreads group - just send me a message via email or from within Goodreads.
  • Sign up for release notification, pre-release specials, and giveaways for books in The First Empire, click here.  NOTE: If you are already on the mailing list - you are automatically entered for future drawings.
Originally I was going to print up the book in the same state as the first beta, but I now want to get the changes in and then print THAT version.  I say this because it shouldn't take too long, and the people who won will get a much better book. If for some reason the edits drag on too long, then I'll revert to my initial plan.


  1. Congratulations to all the winners. Looking forward to getting my copy when it comes out. :0)
