So this is it then. The final two scenes from RIFT. I guess that means this is the last time I say the following: This is first draft material, and if you are put off by typos, bad punctuation, clunky sentences and so on, read no further (go here instead: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Rift-Saga-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/). This is only for those of you who enjoy following the process from first draft to finished product.

And please be advised, I will soon begin taking down the posts from this site, and in a week or two they should all be gone. So if you are following these posts, you should read them now, before it´s too late.

Alright, So before we head for the Covenant, I just want to mention that Exodus is now FREE on the following sites:

Amazon (US for now, but the rest will hopefully follow soon): http://www.amazon.com/Exodus-The-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B00AI9BMHS/

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id963532044

Kobo: http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Exodus/book-BOcGj0v2eECF_hj5ocFrCA/page1.html

Tolino: (Well, it´s a German store, and it is supposed to have a large market share in German speaking countries. I can´t find the book anywhere, but my German is... Well, less than passable... If you use Tolino you probably know how to find it! :-))

Scribd: https://www.scribd.com/book/254305717/Exodus-The-Exodus-Trilogy-1

Page Foundry: http://www.inktera.com/store/title/7148b386-87bd-407d-af43-f822012bb0d6

I´m planning to keep Exodus free for a while, but I can´t promise to keep it free indefinitely. The vendors are free to sell at whatever price they choose, but for now all these have followed my recommendation. I´m expecting Amazon UK and Barnes & Noble to follow, although it can take a while. If you see it at a higher price anywhere, you can always contact the vendor directly, since many of them have a price matching policy.

Okay, so let´s head out to the Covenant for the final scenes from RIFT.

 

RIFT - scene 47 & 48

The contents of this post has now been removed since the book is published.

You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Rift-Saga-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (US and international)

So, that was the final scene from RIFT, the first draft version.

And if you have been reading these posts, you have probably already subscribed to my newsletter, if for no other reason than the 76% discount I gave out for the first 48 hours after RIFT was published. If you missed out, there´s always ALIVE, a FREE story (only if you subscribe), and lots of future discounts and other goodies.

So, do you wanna be part of my inner circle?

Hesitate no more, sign up here!

And no, there´s no spam. Definitely no spam! (arghhh, I HATE spam...)

Ok, so here are another two scenes from RIFT, first draft and all.

Now, the next blog post will consist of the last two scenes, since we´re nearing the end here. So if you still follow this process, be sure not to miss out on those. And then, in a few days, I will begin to take down the first scenes from the blog. Don´t worry, I´ll start with scene 1 and move up, but after posting the last of these scenes, I hope to take down every scene in a week or two, so don´t hold off reading them for too long.

And the end result, after all the edits and changes, can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Rift-Saga-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (US) or here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/RIFT-Rift-Saga-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (UK)

So, here´s RIFT:

Alright guys, here are a few more first draft scenes from RIFT. As always, this is for those interested in the writing process. If you´d rather just dive straight into the finished book, here are the main links: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (US and international readers) or here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (UK). If you do read these posts be aware that once the final scene is blogged I will start taking them down (beginning with scene 1 of course, so you will have some time to catch up). Once they´re gone from the blog though, they´re gone. :-)

I´m currently juggling several projects at once, mainly publishing related stuff more than actual writing, like the RIFT paperback and the Exodus omnibus edition - and a couple of surprises as well. If you sign up to my (irregular but relevant) newsletter, you´ll be the first to know what´s up! http://christensenwriting.com/signup.

Since the actual writing is what I like the most, I can´t wait to get all those other tasks out of the way, but it is necessary work too, so...

Well, enough of my blabber, here´s RIFT!

RIFT - Scene 39, 40 & 41

Eager to know when RIFT II (working title) comes out?

Or perhaps you´d like a free ebook?

Or maybe you just wanna stay in touch?

Sign up to my newsletter (irregular but relevant) here!

Still following the writing process? Cool! I´ve got three more scenes for you here on the blog. Remember, this is first draft material, so the finished novel is quite different. So if you just want to read for enjoyment, I´d suggest you go buy the book instead. This is for those of you who get something out of watching a book grow from random scribblings. So here it is:

 

RIFT - scene 36, 37 & 38

I´ve got have more RIFT scenes for you guys! And as usual: this is first draft material. Enough said... ;-)

You can find the finished novel here: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (US and international readers) or here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/ (UK).

Just so you all know, once I´ve posted every scene from the first draft, I will begin taking down the scenes again (don´t worry, I´ll start with scene 1, so you will have a fair amount of time to read through all of them). So if you want to follow the process all the way, you will have to read them as I post them - you won´t find them here if you wait for too long!

Enough talk, here´s RIFT!

So, how about you just go ahead and sign up to my newsletter?

I´ll give you a free ebook, you´ll get the best discounts (last one was 76% off!), and sometimes I just randomly give away signed paperbacks!

And I´d love to have you in my inner circle!

Sign up here!

So I have a few more RIFT scenes for you guys. Now, RIFT is out on Amazon, so this is purely for those of you wanting to have a look at the process from first draft to finished novel. It´s rough, with all kinds of mistakes, but it´s also the most important part of the writing process. Without a decent story in the first place, no amount of editing will make it readable, in my opinion. But thorough editing is the second most important part, so if you can´t stomach characters switching around, story inconsistencies, repetitive word choice, or poor spelling and punctuation, PLEASE just go to Amazon and get it there, instead of reading this!

But if you DO understand how much a book can change from first draft - and if it doesn´t interfere with your enjoyment of reading the finished novel, then be my guest when I invite you into my writing process. Here it is!

If you haven´t yet signed up for my newsletter, this would be a good time!

I give my newsletter subscribers the best deals, a free ebook (ALIVE) and sometimes even signed paperbacks!

And I´d love to get in touch with you!

You can sign up here.

Hi there!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and if you haven´t heard it from me yet, I wish you all a happy new year!

So, this is just a short post, to let you know RIFT is out on Amazon!

Here´s the US / International link: http://www.amazon.com/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/

And here´s the UK link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/RIFT-Andreas-Christensen-ebook/dp/B00RM5HDYC/

For those who buy on other Amazon stores, you can search for the ASIN number B00RM5HDYC and you´ll find it.

So that´s it for now. I´m waiting for the first reviews to trickle in, and I really do hope you like this book. After all, this is a new series (even though it is connected to the Exodus Trilogy) so until the reviews come in, I really don´t know whether anyone likes it or not. We´ll see!

And of course, the newsletter subscribers already knew all this, since they always get the news first! Want in? Sign up here!

Here are the next three scenes from RIFT, still first draft material, meaning the finished novel will look quite different. But if you like to follow the process and see what happens between these scenes and the published novel, read on.

The manuscript is now with my editor, and we´ll probably be going back and forth as we use to, before it is ready to publish. As soon as it´s out, my newsletter subscribers (who haven´t heard from me for a while now- too busy writing) will be the first to know. And they will get a 75% discount. Want in? Click here!

So, here´s RIFT:
