I pulled the trigger and published Awaken Online: Precipice for preorder on Amazon today.  The release is scheduled for March 31, 2017, so you guys now have a hard date.  That should give me enough time to finish up the final editing and have the audiobook produced.

I’m also considering posting some pre-release chapters on my Patreon to subscribers.   I know some other authors charge obscene amounts for this, but I’m thinking it could be a $5 option and I’d send you a copy of the full book at or a little before release.  Are you guys interested in something like that?  If enough people are on board, I can definitely make it happen!

I also finally managed to set up a store page since a bunch of people were asking me for signed copies of book one.  I discovered quickly that’s it’s super easy to do things like t-shirts and so I added a couple things.  If you have ideas for some other stuff you guys would like, let me know!

    Just finished the first book and am completely blown away by how great it was. Really glad to see the release date is up for the second book! I would honestly love to see posters in the store page, the cover art is really fantastic.

      I think I can do that pretty easily! I’ll work on it when I get a couple free minutes.

    I would definitely do the Patreon thing! To be honest, I didn’t know you had one till now. I just found your site through you author page on Amazon looking for update on your next book.

      Cool deal. Fair enough about not knowing the Patreon existed. I probably need to include a link over from this website. It’s hard to keep track of the like 5-6 places I post.

    Pre-ordered, but I won’t read it. The audio version was good for the last book so I’ll wait for the Audible adaptation (hopefully with the same narrator). Let us know when that’s available for pre-order.

    Glad I found this book. Luke Chmilenko, author of Ascend Online, (https://www.amazon.com/Ascend-Online-Luke-Chmilenko-ebook/dp/B01M01ET8E/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8) pointed you out as a similar read at the end of his book for his readers to look out for.

      Awesome! Luke is a great guy and we’ve talked quite a bit. I’m going to have to send him an email thanking him for giving me a shout out.

    Hi… I’m actually new to reading books other than school books but youre book really intrigued me so i ordered it mainly because of similarities to SAO but i loved it and i couldn’t get enough so i finished it in teo days. So i cant wait for book two and good luck with everything.(ps. I wanted to ask if book two will be released as paperback or hardcover because currently i can only pre-order the kindle version)

      Thanks for the kind words! I’ll definitely release AO2 in paperback. I’m just finding it much more difficult to release certain types of books for preorder. Apparently, there are some things only traditional publishers can do!

    So this wait is driving me crazy! I believe at this point I am going on read through number 10 of your first book. I have scouted through your posts here and the comments on your Amazon page. Did you decide not to do the patreon release for a few bucks you get the first few chapters? If this continues the way it is ill have read your book going into the 20s by the time the second book comes out! But I have also read most of amazons selection of litrpg books and series and yours really stand out. I hope you don’t loose the creative use of the freedom the genre brings to you as an author and I can’t wait to read more!

      Glad you liked it! I’ll probably release a few chapters early on Patreon a little closer to release. Maybe one a week starting at the beginning of March or something. I expect I’ll make a post about it around then with details. Honestly, I haven’t had much chance to think about it!

    I really enjoyed Catharsis when I listened to it as an audio book. I was just wondering if your second book would release on as an audio book at the same time as the digital version?

      That’s the plan. Now, whether I pull it off is a different story. There isn’t really a streamlined way to do this as an indie guy and it’ll depend on how fast ACX processes the audiobook.

    Awesome book, pre-order completed, can’t wait for March 31st!

    I loved the first book and bought it as print, as I prefer physical copies for my favorite books. Will there be a print version of book 2? The preorder only has a kindle version.

      There will definitely be a print version. Like ACX, there isn’t an easy way to put the print up for preorder. I will have to release it around March 31. There’s a lot of stuff that’s hard to do if you’re an indie guy without a publishing house.

        Good to hear, I was looking to preorder book 2 today on Amazon and saw the kindle only thing. Not a fan of digital books. 🙂

    Just finished the second book. Amazing job as usual, Travis! I know it’ll probably be a little while, but I’m definitely stoked for the next adventure! Keep up the great work!

    OMGosh!! I just finished book 2. Please tell me that there will be a book three sooner than later. LOL
    I love how Jason is growing. I cannot wait to see what you have in plan for Alex and how he will turn out. He has some great….. crossroads and is a character to loathe.

    I was in the car when the book ended, and I went “nuts.” My friend with me thought I had lost. These books are perfect for all ages and just so excited to read the next book. Thanks!!

    WOW! Just finished reading the second book! I stumbled upon it in the kindle store not realizing it had already been released and proceed to read it in <24hours… I literally couldn't put it down! Thanks for a great read.

    Wonderful stuff. I picked both books up on audible and even got my carpool passenger (who never reads) sucked in. Can’t wait for #3.

    Just finished the audio version of books 1&2. They were excellent! I know book 2 just came out. But I’m really excited about book 3 and possibly beyond! Probably a long shot here, but any updates on book 3 would be great! Keep doing what your doing!

    A friend of mine told me about Catharsis three days ago, just finished reading Precipice too. Nicely done, can’t wait for book three. Heres to hoping it doesnt take too long since you left us with such a rough cliffhanger.
