SRP author, Philipp J. Kessler, released his first full length novel and book two in the Dark of the Moon, New Beginnings series. Waterfall hit Kindle and paperback on Amazon Monday, May 1, 2017. Waterfall is the sequel to Backfire. Along with Philipp, SRP hosted a release party and author takeover on Facebook. Eight authors took place in the party. We are so happy to have been able to work with authors like Alan VanMeter, Diane Morrison, and Hal Greenberg to celebrate the release of this novel.
Leading up to the release of Waterfall, Philipp attended a local sci-fi/fantasy convention, Constellation8, to schmooze with authors and artists as well as cast line to hook new readers. Though he did not have a booth of his own, he was able to make a few sales while at the con and donated a copy of his book to a silent auction later in the weekend hosted by a local Pagan church. Something he was only too happy to do!
While at the convention, he got to meet the local artist who created the cover art for his chapter-a-month sci-fi project, R.S. Pinnacle: Asteroid. The artist, Chris Ralston, was in the dealer room with many pieces of his art, as well as doing on-the-spot commission. Chris’s art can be found online at R10Creations. You can read Asteroid‘s first chapter for free at Philipp’s Patreon page and become a Patron for only $1 a month to get access to the rest of the project as it becomes available.
Philipp also ran into fellow Nebraska authors Sarah Buhrman, Lisa Kovanda, and Arden Ellen Nixon. Arden is also an artist. Constellation is a great local event that Philipp is looking forward to having a table at next year.
