If you didn’t already know, because you don’t follow RB’s Blog, then a lot of fiction has been being published by us over at RB’s Universe. We’ve started a series of fiction coming out once a week. In fact Lost Falchion has just started last week and will continue to the end of this volume.
We hope you all enjoy the fiction!
Well everyone today is the day! Our first book is now up and available for sell on Amazon.com. You can find it here. Lost Falchion is now our first available book and we are excited to have it officially out!
We hope that you will pick up a copy and enjoy it. We’re hoping to have it available in printed form soon.
We have officially updated our Submission Guidelines, which all prospective authors should read. You can click the word Submissions above or click here to read the guidelines.
One quick note: we do and will accept anthologies of short stories as long as their total word count is 50 thousand words or more.
As always if you have any question feel free to e-mail us at Kudan.Press@gmail.com.
Hey just a quick update here.
Lost Falchion is now available for pre-order and will officially be available in on February 6th, 2016. You can look at it here. We look forward to it being available, but right now you can view it and pre-order. Thanks for all your support up to this point!
We are are super excited to announce that we are coming out with our first book. Lost Falchion has long been slated to be our first published book (hopefully followed by Forced War). Well we are excited to announce that the book has been submitted to Amazon and we should be receiving confirmation in the next few days. We picked February 6th as our release date for this one. Again this is only Kindle. We are moving forward on print copies as well, but there is a different process that goes with that (which includes quite a bit more work on our end) and we hope to have that finished by June in order for our summer release schedule.
We are currently working hard on getting everything ready for these releases. If you have any works that you would like to submit we are currently taking submissions. We are looking for works that are 30k words or more right now and you can always forward these submissions to Kudan.Press@gmail.com.
Thank you so much for all your support!
Well I just wanted to announce the state of the press for everyone. So we have our submissions open still. We are looking for submissions, right now we are not looking for short story submissions, but keep your ears open because there are future plans for a KP Short Story Anthology. If you have questions about submissions feel free to e-mail us at Kudan.Press@gmail.com. (Please note there are plans to update our submission guidelines as well see below).
Apart from that we are making plans to publish our first project this year. We have made plans for what that will be but there are some things up in the air right now. That will either be Lost Falchion or Forced War. (You can always find out more info on my projects by going to my blog.) This is sometime in the future though. We are shooting for a date sometime this summer for our first release.
The only other big news is that we are rethinking our “Submissions Guidelines”. We did not look far enough down the road to really do justice to what we are trying to do. By setting our guidelines the way we have, we have completely neglected any chance of publishing anything other than the ”traditional” novel. This stops us from doing what we set out to do and that was start a small press that would actually allow indie-authors to get published.
I, RB, being an indie-author myself have tried self publishing and other various forms of publishing, but to no avail. My hope in starting Kudan Publishing is open a publishing house that can publish you that’s right publish your work that you worked so hard on and love so much.
That being said we are currently looking for volunteers. You can help by being a part of building this publishing house from the ground up. I enjoy Speculative Fiction and Fantasy but that is only two genres I do not necessarily know what is good when it comes to other genres. So if you would like to be a part of something that has the potential to grow bigger than just ourselves and build something that could touch countless lives across the world. Get in touch with us. You can e-mail us at Kudan.Press@gmail.com.
I would like to announce some future projects to you. If you follow my Personal Blog (RB’s Blog) then you know that many of my projects are being switched up. I have cancelled many of them – at least for now anyway – and I have proceeded to start working on very specific projects. One of those projects is a contract between this Publication House and Breath of God Ministries which will allow us to be publishing content for them. (Being one of the executive editors of the project it seemed only natural to give Kudan Publishing the chance to have the contract.)
I am also working on a lot info with Believe Better Ministries to allow for the publish of information and essays that have been put up through that Ministerial position. I am currently working on the first book for Believe Better Ministry which is a book of poetry. I am also working on a book of essays for Believe Better Ministries.
Finally we come to fiction. In fiction I am working on four ships. They are night and day representations of each other. Two of the ships are military (or paramilitary) ships the other two are transport/trade ships. One is the “good” side of the universe which is the military and corporate cargo ship, the other is the “dark” side of the universe which is a mercenary (paramilitary) and transport (not quite legal) ships.
There will be more info coming out soon. BOG Ministries will have it’s first publication coming up within a years time and I’m hoping to have something for fiction within a years time as well.
We hope to have something to show you soon.
We forgot to post that we have officially published our first ebook. It is called Wanju: the Game of Life and it is available for FREE here. It is about the game Wanju which you can download and play form the above link. It is a chess variant that has the added idea of randomness.
We just wanted to make the announcement since it is our first official work to come out and since the second edition will possibly be coming out soon.
We have decided on a new publishing schedule. We know that our goal had been to get our first book out by Q3 2013 at our conception and that it has been a long silent time since that goal was set. We never got around to being able to offer the content in a manner that we considered to be good enough to be consistent with our name. Well that is over and we have done a lot of soul searching and have made some tough decisions and we are back!
Our current Publishing Schedule looks like this:
- June 1st 2015 — Forced War
- Before January 2016 — Imonoran Empire: The Anthology
- Before June 2016 — Troigan and Other Stories
- June 1st 2016 — Sword of the Empire
All of these books are by RB. If you know of an author that is looking for a publisher please give them our e-mail address: Kudan.Press@gmail.com.
We have decided to not look for funding right now as we can publish without the need of it since there are many resources that will allow us to publish without asking for your money. What that means to you is that our first book will be out sooner. We are looking through our options right now and getting things together. We are finishing up another round of edits on our first books (Lost Falchion and other Stories and Forced War) and they will hopefully be out sometime later this year.
Other than that we are working hard to make the best product we can. If you do want to donate we will be hopefully putting Patreon account here soon where you can become a patron of us and get exclusive content. Thank you so much for bearing with us.
