Book Giveaway: Night Plague

Night Plague Giveaway on GoodreadsAs an aside, if anyone is interested in my novel, Night Plague, I’m currently running a giveaway on Goodreads. Until 05/15/15, Goodreads members can enter for a chance to win one of ten free paperback copies. I’m also experimenting with the self-serve advertising system Goodreads offers.

Yeah, this post is a shameless plug. But to add a little more substance to it, I will post an update after the giveaway ends – regarding what sort of results I’ve seen from these features on Goodreads – for any other authors out there who might want to try them.


Hey there,
I’m Rowan Rook, a novelist and novice game designer. My first novel, Night Plague, was published by Severed Press back in August 2014, and I’m currently working on a several new projects, including the partially released serial novel, Living Ageless. In addition, I also dabble with fanfiction, poetry, and anything else that can tell a story. While I have separate websites focused on my novels and my game projects, I wanted a more informal environment to interact with readers and gamers, other writers, and to share and discuss my own experiences, and so I decided to give blogging a go.

With posts on an approximately twice-per-week basis, this blog will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Upcoming books/projects and their progress
  • Previews and snippets of upcoming novels
  • Character bios and interviews
  • Poetry
  • Photographs
  • Discussions of the writing craft
  • Tips on writing, editing, and outlining
  • Tips on fanfiction and other fun projects
  • RPG Maker tutorials and tips
  • Discussions and tips on NaNoWriMo and other similar events
  • Helpful writing and game design tools
  • Reviews and recommendations of books, games, etc
  • And more!

I hope you enjoy your stay, and find the posts here fun and helpful. If there is a topic you’d like to see covered, feel free to let me know, and feel free to join the discussions with comments or questions!
