Hi guys!

You can find my fiction over at Smashwords (finally)! Here's the link:

I released The Throne of Ao and Zero Angel's Change of the Zombie on Smashwords today. This means that these two stories will be coming to the Apple, Sony and Kobo bookstores SOON!

Thank you for your continued support,

(To fans of Zero Angel's Mathematics, there are presently no plans to support other avenues of distribution. The formatting required by a math book forestalls being able to use Smashwords which is the chief inroad to the secondary retail markets (anything outside of Amazon). It is possible that a BN Nook edition may be feasible depending on demand and time constraints. Thank you for your interest though! If anything changes, I will let you know)

The Warrior's Way, Section 2, and Change of the Zombie

posted Feb 24, 2013, 1:02 AM by Zero Richardson

Hi guys,

Doing my best to get The Warrior's Way and Section 2: Arithmetic and Number Sense: The 'Basics' of Math We Are Never Taught out this week.

I'm reasonably certain Section 2 will be finished by Wednesday, and published within 48 hours of that. The Warrior's Way novella set in the WotA multiverse I really want to make sure is the best it can be, so there may be a slight delay there, but hope to have it done by the end of the week and released to Kindle and Smashwords.

I am also changing the name of "Zero Angel's The Change" to "Zero Angel's Change of the Zombie" and providing an extended distribution via Smashwords.

Also, you may have noticed the updated Social Media sites at the bottom of the page. Please feel free to connect with me via any of them.

Finally, I am also working to better merge this site with my blogspot site and the wiki. Stay tuned!

Thank you for your support,

Amazon Bestseller

Hi Guys!

So I've been having some great results with my nonfiction series. Thank you for all of the support!

I had a free promotion over Black Friday and Saturday, during which time I went to #1 in the Free Amazon Bestseller list in Mathematics!

Even more exciting to me, since the free promotion I made it onto the Paid Amazon Bestseller list in Math! I didn't get as high as #1, but "Overcoming Math Anxiety and How to Be Successful in Mathematics" was in the top 5% of all Amazon kindle books on Dec 2. This was extremely exciting!

Thank you for your continued support. You can expect the next section in my math series to be out within a week and a WotA prequel story featuring some of the powerhouses of that universe later this month.

Thank you!

Christmas Sale & Zero Angel's Mathematics

posted Nov 21, 2012, 1:26 AM by Apocalypse Designs News

Hey folks,

Wanted to let you know that Zero is having a sale for Book I of his War of the Ages saga: The Throne of Ao. He's cut the price from the mass market paperback level down to $4.99 for Christmas. The book has a new cover and many revisions from the first edition designed to improve readability without losing content.

In other news, Zero has started a new series that is nonfiction! Zero Angel's Mathematics is his attempt to teach math for everyone. It's a book that's designed for student success. So students of mathematics don't have to wait or purchase an expensive textbook, Zero has started releasing the book section by section. This way students are able to only pay for the sections they want/need and can get some right now instead of having to wait.

We haven't made a formal announcement because we were waiting until the Nook version was available as well, but both Kindle and Nook versions are out for Book I - The Throne of Ao!!!

Remember that if you do not have a Kindle or Nook that there are free apps available for your PC, Mac or smartphones.

Here is the Kindle version:

Hello everyone!
Zero Angel here and I am excited to tell you about what is on the horizon for WotA.
In the coming months, I will be releasing two e-novellas available on both the Kindle and the Nook. These will also be available to anyone that has an app that allows them to read Kindle and Nook books. The novellas will be priced competitively with other stories of similar length and quality on their sites.
May 2012 marks the release of Book I - The Throne of IIo in ebook format, again available for both the Kindle and the Nook. We are shooting for a simultaneous release for the print version as well, but we have been having some difficulty with our printer and are working to try to get the kinks out. Print versions will be available on-demand and to all pre-orders, but will probably not be available in stores because of the issues we have been working with.
Thank you!

Hello folks,

This has been related individually to many of you, but the WotA Online Magazine has been discontinued for the foreseeable future. Although site updates will continue, and a few more short stories will be posted soon, it has been decided that Zero Angel needs to focus his energies on getting The Throne of IIo published and WotA Online was taking too much time to produce satisfactorily.

Instead of taking the time to continue to produce WotA Online, all efforts will be channeled into updating the website regularly, producing short stories (both free and available at paying sites), and seeking publishing opportunities.

Thank you.
