The book is out! But still holding our breath...

  The book is out! Before I began my typical rant... if you're reading this, (and I assume you are by the advanced deduction that you just read that), then you want the book.  Without further ado, here's where to go: For Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/The-Knifes-Edge-Ronin-ebook/dp/B00CAWXIPU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366252622&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Ronin+Saga+The+Knife%27s+Edge For Paperback: https://www.createspace.com/4223846 For ALL other forms of e-book (including but not limited to epub, pdf, .txt, .word, online reading and more!): http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/296633 *Hardcover soon to come... 2 weeks or less...  
If you're someone who hasn't been following the Ronin Saga's story since day one--that's okay! Welcome aboard.  Simply put, it is a sprawling epic fantasy that's LOTR's meets Knights of the Round table, with a Japanese element and a main character with a Bourne Identity Complex.  So read the synopsis, go check out a few pages on amazon, and if you dig it (which, modesty aside, I truly believe you will if you liked ANY of the aforementioned things)... then get on board and get your copy now :) banner4
ALL that said I am STILL in the process of getting the book to all the right distributors and publishing it in all forms (i.e. hardcover).  I'm also still finishing sending it to my wonderful kickstarter supporters who donated nearly $4,000 to this project.  So this is truly the calm before the coming storm.  I hope in the next week or two i can really began pushing the book without hesitation... I just want to at least have a place for you all to buy it.  (Yes, this is the FULLY finished, fully edited book.)  How did i finally let it go, i still don't know, but this is the one.   ALSO: Just had a article written on yours truly in the Solana Beach Sun, Del Mar Times, Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe Review! Go buy, snag, steal, raid* your copy now to read up on the "TPHS author whose fantasy becomes a reality" - or something cool and tagline-y along those lines.


As for the previous links, this is just temporary--soon we will have nice, fancy pictures on the sidebar that will link you to the appropriate sites.


As for the next phase, I can sum it up in one beautiful word:  reviews.  Once you read the book (and i open it up to all mediums to be read and devoured--I like that image, just don't actually eat the book... I assume it's just adding fiber to your diet, but the inky, the glossy cover, honestly, it doesn't sound healthy.  Plus upon seeing it, I can now officially no longer 'dog-ear' pages.  It just doesn't feel right.  I see the blasphemy i have committed all these years... Apologies fellow authors!)  But yes, read the book, and I will be keep you all up-to-date on where to go to review, but wherever you see a place that has the option for reviewing, the biiggggesstt help you can do for me and for the success of this project is review (and hopefully it's a good review, but be honest!).  Reviews will sell the book.  People trust them and it will generate interest and traffic towards The Knife's Edge. Well, that's it... I'm excited to be on the next leg of this amazing journey and having you all as my roadside companions who are going to blaze the trail and light the flame of interest like a bonfire for all to see!  (At least that's the image i'm going with for now). I'll be posting a lot more very soon so check back frequently!! Sincerely, Matt Wolf *Don't actually pilfer or steal the newspaper, also seeing as it's pretty much free in front of most grocery stores like Vons.  I don't condone violence in any form, unless it's fantasy related--then maybe just a little bit.
