I've heard about a special "Collector's Edition" Dragod Origins book; what's that all about?

A beautiful dust cover jacket cover!

Is Dragod Origins the official title of the book? / Will there be a series?

"Dragod Origins" is part of the book's title and would be the book series name (e.g. 'Rising Blood' is the first Dragod Origins book. The second book would be 'Dragod Origins: ___ )

The debut DO novel "Dragod Origins; Rising Blood" will be the first novel in a possible Dragod Origins series. If more books were to be written, they would all carry the Dragod Origins series name.



Is a series possible? Yes, it is definitely possible and could happen!


A few factors would have to play in if the next book, let alone a series, would be announced. The overall reaction to "Dragod Origins; Rising Blood", book performance and reader input/reviews will heavily determine if the next book (or series) is very possible!


If you've read the debut book, please leave feedback; this will aid in the decision if whether or not the next book is approved (plus, it can point out things you, the reader, would like to see in the next book, which is also appreciated)!  

Is Dragod Origins correlated to any book or movie I've seen before?

Not at all. In the recent days of reimagined reboots, spin-offs and revived trilogies, Dragod Origins is stepping into the published book world as a completely new YA fantasy novel set within its own intricate universe, with unique characters and a original storyline. It is in no way part of or based off of or correlates to other novels or films such as The Hobbit©, The Hunger Games©, Game of Thrones©, Lord of the Rings© or any other similar film, novel, motion picture or graphic novel. If similarities occur, it is pure coincident. 

How much will the book cost? / What's the genre?

Working closely with Amazon and Lulu press, Shadow Beast Publishing has worked tirelessly to bring the best value to the reader while being able to support the book's cost. The prices are as follows (special limited promotions, however, may lower the price of one or more versions of the book temporarily);

Kindle/ebook; $7.99

What is 'Shadow Beast Publishing? / What changes will SBP bring to Dragod Origins?

Shadow Beast Publishing is E. K. Wiggins' publishing imprint, under which Dragod Origins: Rising Blood (and possibly any other titles/publications in the future) fall under the name of. This is to make searching, discovering and locating (mainly on social media platforms and book distributor platforms) easier and quicker. With the advent of Shadow Beast Publishing, it also will transpire into a new look for the brand, as well as several changes.


Shadow Beast Publishing will be bringing several large changes to the table as 2024 will shortly begin, changing the way Dragod Origins (as well as any other possible releases) will be represented. The main changes will include;

1. The website will be shut down and all active links deactivated (mid-late 2024) after the Shadow Beast Publishing website becomes active.


2. All social media currently under the Dragod Origins/Dragod Origins Official name will be rebadged as Shadow Beast Publishing.

3. An updated SBP imprint logo will be featured in any future publications (currently, the original logo is feature in 'Dragod Origins: Rising Blood').

SBP is an indie publishing imprint that only will promote, advertise and publish books by E. K. Wiggins and will not provide any book editing, book review or publishing services to the public.
