Good Evening Everyone,

I am very excited to announce that, for a limited time only, I will be releasing a special hardcover omnibus edition of Books 1-4 of "The Noricin Chronicles," and I will be donating 100% of my author royalties for the sales of this limited edition to Book Aid International (http://www.bookaid.org/), a literacy charity based in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, in order to maintain a reasonable list price for the book, I am unable to make it available through distribution channels such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. As such, the book will only available for order through LuLu.com. At the moment, it looks like the list price will be about $26.00, but I am currently in discussions with LuLu to see if we might be able to bring that down a bit, since the sales of the book are going to a noble cause. I appreciate your patience and understanding!

This special hardcover edition, with cover artwork designed by yours truly, will only be available between September 3, 2011, and December 31, 2011, so be sure to grab a copy while you can! Stay tuned to this newsletter for more information - I will be sending out an update in September once the book is available and the final list price is set!

Happy reading,

Mark Sheldon

Good morning everyone!

 

I'm pleased to announce that "The Room of Death," Book 3 of "The Noricin Chronicles," is now here! To find out where you can order your copy today, visit: http://noricin.webs.com/wheretobuy-trod.html


Following in the steps of JS Chancellor and Neil Gaiman, to celebrate the release of "The Room of Death," for the month of May I'm making the e-book of "The Lost Boy" available for FREE! Yes, FREE! To take advantage of this promotion, just enter the discount code WD62W when you purchase the e-book at Smashwords (

For those who knew about my previous plans to release all twelve books between now and December 2012, after careful consideration I have decided to revise my original release schedule. "Scorpio Rising" will be the last new release for 2011, however I will be publishing a special hardcover omnibus edition of books 1-4 toward the end of this year. Books 5-8 will be released over the course of 2012, and books 9-12 will be released over the course of 2013. I hope that doesn't disappoint too many readers, but the change of schedule really was necessary for my own sanity as well as other marketing considerations.

Happy reading,

Mark Sheldon

Sorry to hear all the prices are dropping on books. I know I'm swimming up stream, but if people want something they will pay for it!

Color me flattered

I am pleased to the first featured adventure-travel writer in the new and improved Travel World International Magazine. The March issue is dedicated to adventure travel from “Hiking on the Edge” in China’s Tiger Leaping Gorge to “Following the Herd” in Tanzania. Editor, Donna M. Airoldi asked me some pointed questions about why somebody chooses to do what I do that I had fun answering.

Click here for my interview on page 60 http://www.travelworldmagazine.com/node/147

And go here http://www.travelworldmagazine.com/ to enjoy all the articles in this exciting issue dedicated to outdoor fun.
I’m sure you will find a trip that rekindles your spirit of adventure
