SPECIAL AUDIOBOOK BONUS OFFER! The Spellmonger's Yule, Read By John Lee!

As a special promotional offer by Podium.com, a special audiobook of my recent short story, The Spellmonger's Yule, is now being offered by audfans.com!  It's a free sign-up, and you get the entire short story (for new fans, this will contain some serious spoilers, but will also introduce you to the direction the series takes)

This is an amazing endorsement of my work by my publisher, and I feel grateful that they invested in this promotion.  Please show them it isn't wasted by taking a listen.

And yes, I've started Necromancer.  No, I don't know when I'll be done.

Terry at Tidewater Comicon this weekend

I'll be manning a table for Spellmonger at the Tidewater Comicon in Virginia Beach, VA. this weekend, although I'll be cutting out early on Sunday to go see my mom for mother's day.  I'll have hard copies of Hawkmaiden and Spellmonger to sign.  Stop by and see me, if you're in the area!

Also, Warmage is kicking ass on audible.com and Hawklady is burning up the charts, for a YA book.  Thank you all for making me a success!

Hawklady Now Available For Pre-Order, Release May 9th With Warmage Audiobook!



Hawklady, the second in my Spellmonger Cadet series, is now available for pre-order via the link below.  It will be released the same day as the Audiobook version of Warmage (which is also available for pre-order).  It's a trim 85,000 words, but it's a good adventure story featuring Dara.

The  cover ugly.  It's also the temporary cover.  It says so right on the cover.

And don't forget that you can order a hard copy of Hawkmaiden at this link:

https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/books/book-detail-page?ie=UTF8&bookASIN=1535050853&index=default

I'll have a hard copy version of Hawklady as soon as the art is done.

I really enjoy doing these cadet novels, and I think I'd like to do at least one a year from now on.  But I'm considering changing to a different character for the next one.  Perhaps one we haven't seen before.  But what kinds of characters (young people, please) would you like to see in the future in the Cadet series?  Discuss.

The Trashy Summer Beach Reading Season Has Begun! Pick Up A Bad Penny!

                 The Tawdry Story Of A Time-Traveling Serial Rapist On A Mission To Save Humanity!






                                WARNING! SEXUALLY EXPLICIT CONTENT! ADULTS ONLY!

When they brought in the handsome man in a straitjacket to the Dixmont Psychiatric Hospital in Pittsburgh, 1958, it was obvious that the patient was not only a madman, but a dangerous, if charming, sociopath. As "Tom Doe" reveals his story to the disbelieving psychiatrist he spins a tale out of the wildest pulp fiction: he's from the future, and he's here to impregnate as many women in the past as he can . . . to save humanity's future! He's a Casanova Agent, employed by the future Department of Public Health in the late 21st century, where a deadly genetic virus has rendered the bulk of the population sterile, and he has a mandate to knock up the cream of 1950s femininity to implant the corrective code. 

As the tale turns from pure sociopathic sexuality and the worst kind of lurid behavior to a paranoid fantasy involving a beautiful enemy agent and a war between competing timelines, the fantastic story of seduction and passion, pursuit and eroticism is laughably insane . . . until Tom produces a penny from 1964 that seems to support his story. With the future fate of humanity on the line, will this madman find a way to free himself and save the world . . . or is he just a sex-crazed pervert spinning the biggest lie in all of history?



Complete with typo in the series title . . . you know it's good!


Tired of Fifty Tame Shades of Mediocrity? Waiting eagerly for the next Spellmonger book, but wishing there was a lot more explicit sex and vintage Cadillacs involved? Consider the book that will likely ruin my reputation! Blatantly pornographic and bordering on sociopathic, this pulpy, tawdry tale is YOUR chance to indulge in a guilty pleasure that mixes bold-faced erotica with intriguing sci-fi time travel adventure! Read the book that's been rejected because no one knows how to market it! Get the opportunity to throw your Kindle down in disgust at just how far the world has slipped into decay! First in a trilogy, don't forget that Amazon Prime members don't have to waste a DIME of their own on this experimental trashy novel! 

And, in case you missed it . . .

WARNING! 
ADULT SEXUAL CONTENT! 
ADULTS ONLY!


You have been warned.

Spellmonger's Yule up, so is Audiobook Spellmonger!

The Spellmonger's Yule: A Spellmonger Series Short Story by [Mancour, Terry]

Official Audiobook Launch Date for Spellmonger!



I received word yesterday from Podium Publishing that the audiobook version of Spellmonger will be available at Audible.com on February 7th!  Behold the new, professional cover they came up with!  Delight in the amazing tones of John Lee (incredible work, I'm very pleased)!  Amuse yourself for hours hearing how the character names are actually pronounced!

The cover price will be $39.99, or thereabouts, but that's a lot of hours of entertainment.  Additionally, Podium has graciously allowed me the use of the art for both my Amazon and Createspace works.  That means that you only have a limited time to buy the old version, destined to become valuable collectables after my inevitable death.

In other news, my writing schedule (which was hashed anyway) is undergoing revision, a familiar place for me to be.  I'll be releasing the short Spellmonger's Yule in conjunction with the audiobook, and then turning my attention to finishing up Hawklady before moving on to Trask's Odyssey.  After those, I'll be focusing on Necromancer, which I'm pushing to be out by midsummer.  Or late summer.  Regardless, I won't Martin you.

But there's more to do than merely write: I'm taking some time for valuable Series Development work.  Next week I'm meeting with my creative team, during which we will map out a convention schedule for the next year.  At this point, the only firm date I have is the Baltimore Comic-Con, but I'll be looking at others east of the Mississippi.  I'm also open to panels and such.  If you know a con you'd like me to appear at, let me know - and let THEM know you want me to be there.

The point of this exercise is blatantly and unapologetically commercial: I'm at the point in my career where I have a wonderful, magnificent base of fans, and a work that is primed for Prime Time.  Developing the creative elements of the series into a visual medium - either live-action or animated - is the logical next step.  That means a lot of groundwork, and I've been building a great team for just that purpose.

But wait, there's more . . . more audiobooks.  Warmage will be hot on the heels of Spellmonger, and Magelord soon after.  The smooth and professional way in which Podium does their art should see at least two or three more of the series turned into audiobooks this year.  That also implies some work on my part, because each book requires me to go back through each line and find all of the mistakes and fabricated words for inclusion in the work, so all those mistakes everyone hates get fixed.  While this is great, it takes time.  So scheduling reliably is . . . problematic.

But fear not: Necromancer will not mark the end of the series, just the end of the first third of the series.  I have twenty more novels in the main plot arc to get through.  Plus shorts, one-shots, the Cadet series, and stuff I haven't even thought of, yet.

Plus, there's the Super Secret Project, which will be released suddenly, unexpectedly, and likely to the dismay of some of my fans.   I've kept it on the shelf long enough, though, and I think it's time.  (cue dramatic music)

Thank you to everyone who expressed their sympathies for my father's passing.  He was the greatest single influence in my life, and every word I write originated, in one way or another, from him.
