Plus

1x Paperback The Last Incarnation, current release.

1x Paperback Mists of Faeron, current release.

1x Paperback Out of the Dark, current release. This book will ship to you in October 2012


Ok, so for those of you that know the story behind the Ascension series, this will come as no new news. However, since many of you do not know, I will share it with you now.

The History...

J.A. Giunta has been working on the trilogy for what seems like forever. Certainly going back as far as he and I worked on Anthology magazine together while he was still finishing up his college degree, we'll just say that was a long time ago.

When he first self published books one (The Last Incarnation) and two (The Mysts of Faeron), I remember coming over to his house and seeing the boxes of books stacked in the dining room. This was a good 2 or three years before I even started Brick Cave Media, so sometime in 2005/2006.

It wasn't long after that that he announced he was going to rewrite the second book, and that meant also rewriting the first book.

Now, I don't know why he decides these things, I've seen him trash perfectly good stories over the years merely on a whim, so I am totally used to that kind of behavior from Joe. Additionally, he pretty much always gets the job done.

So, he rewrote the second book (and really the third book as well, but he had never released book three, Out of the Dark, anyway, so nobody knew). The other thing he did was to invest in his covers, having the tremendous Henning Ludvigsen create whole new (and infinitely better) covers for each of the three books. I say this because since we have republished them, almost every sale of the book I've made in person has been based at least partially on the cover.

So, some people that have the original book two, with it's original cover, and completely different storyline, have a collectors item. It had faded into the sunset. How different? It's almost an alternate reality to the events following book one. Different character names, events and plot. A fundamentally different book from the subsequent rewrite.

An Opportunity for You

Original_MystsI say all this to help you the reader understand how cool it is that Joe found a couple of the old books, and passed them on to Brick Cave Media (when he would have normally tossed them).

So, here is what we are going to do. We are going to auction them off. But not just them, we are going to auction off a copy of both the original and the new version, together as a set, signed by Joe. That means you'll be able to get your TMOF a full 3 months before anyone else.

Oh, but wait, there's more!

Of the winning bid, Brick Cave Media will donate 50% of the proceeds to two Charities, one of Joe's choosing, and one of the winning bidder's choosing.

Charity Selection:

J.A. Giunta's selection of a Charity for the auctions is the Make A Wish Foundation. 25% of the winning Bid will be donated to the make a Wish Foundation in Joe's Name.

The winning bidder, will also be able to select a charity of their choice*, and an additional 25% of the winning bid will be given to that Charity in the winner's name.

*Charity is subject to approval.
