Falls of Redemption - BoxsetEver try to jump start something old? Since Justice is Calling (Reclaiming Honor) launched so well, I figured I’d do the with my Falls of Redemption trilogy – and Jason Rice was awesome enough to set up a group $0.99 promo.

It’s been going pretty damn well! Am I losing money? I don’t know, but the book is up to 3,297 and has a few newsletters going out tomorrow and the next day, along with a Bargainbooksy tomorrow, sitting at #6 in Military Fantasy ūüôā So I’m freaken thrilled! LOVE YOU fellow writers and readers. Just gotta keep plugging away — now to see if the extra attention makes a difference/ if it sticks.

Michael La Ronn’s OLD DARK – The Last Dragon Lord

51qfGQkjZ6LHave you checked out Michael La Ronn’s new novel OLD DARK yet? It’s the first book in The Last Dragon Lord dark fantasy series, and is definitely worth checking out if you like fantasy and dragons.

Aside from it being an awesome book, why should my readers care? Because Michael and I have a dark Urban Fantasy book coming soon! A trilogy, actually, so you might as well start getting to know him now – you’ll be hearing a lot more about him!

The Book Description: 

Old Dark is a viperous dragon lord who rules the world with an iron fist. For two hundred years he and his dragons have terrorized humans and elves, forcing them to pay tribute or die.

There’s a deadly conspiracy brewing. And if he doesn’t contain it, it will destroy him and everything he’s built.

But Dark was born to fight. There’s a reason the ancients called him Dark the Wicked…

Old Dark is the first book in the dark fantasy series The Last Dragon Lord. Readers who like the Age of Fire series and Smaug from the Lord of the Rings will enjoy this series.

Buy it here!

Old Dark (The Last Dragon Lord Book 1)

I could explain all that I love about the story in this book; however, if I was to do that I would give the whole thing away. So what I can say is that the story line kept me wanting more, at times I was in tears, and at other times I was laughing. also I can’t get enough of the Dragons view point, and cannot recall any other Novel that goes into this much detail, “Great Job”. I can also say that the story line reads from several view points, and keeps you hoping…. I mean that in a good way, When I finally had a chance to settle down and set myself to reading the book, I did not want to put it down. It only took me two days to read it, and I love the sneak preview of the next volume… I definitely want the chance to read it as well, and am looking forward to it with anticipation. I would recommend this book and I will be buying the next also. I received the chance to review this book at a discounted cost for my honest opinion.

Retribution Calls

Retribution CallsIf you’ve been waiting for an awesome fantasy series with amazing book covers, here it is! So much fantasy is based on Europe, so I wanted to do what George RR Martin did with his series based on the Wars of the Roses, but with mine based on Ancient Greek wars between Sparta and Athens. Yes, I made it a fantasy world and fictionalized it, but you’ll see the influence.

I took the Martin route regarding magic too. For me, it’s more about the people and character – so book one has HINTS of magic (for the perceptive among you), book 2 a little bit more, and then book 3 (coming late July) comes out swinging with the fantasy aspects. I loved how Game of Thrones did this, but would have loved those books with even less magic — so that’s what I set out to do.

Hope you enjoy! You can buy it at the link below, or read most of my books, including this series, free with Kindle Unlimited. PS – the cover you see here is the final one. Amazon takes a few days to update, sometimes.

Terry Goodkind – The Sword of Truth

I finally started reading The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. A few people warned me away from it, saying it goes crazy directions. But I don’t care! I love it so far and I’m sticking with it.

It’s hard to find authors you love. For me there’s been a few lately, including George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Will Wight, Patrick Rothfuss, and now Terry Goodkind in fantasy. I also have a tendency to enjoy authors of younger fiction, such as Brandon Mull, Shannon Hale, and Maggie¬†Stiefvater.

When I “discover” one of these authors, it makes my day. So I’ll keep sharing about their awesome work, and you keep letting me know about others I need to be reading. Thanks!

 

Writing Tears of Devotion – Book 3 in the Falls of Redemption Trilogy

covermockup2Oh man, I’m taking a quick break from my writing to tell you what I’m writing – it hurts! I want to be writing, but at the same time I was just so excited so I had to share.

So, as the title says, I started writing the 3rd book in the Falls of Redemption trilogy – TEARS OF DEVOTION. It’s going to be epic. While book 1 and 2 were slow introductions to fantasy, and in a way this is still subdued fantasy (no goblins or magicians), it’s going to get pretty serious here. A lot of the setups in 1 and 2 are finally coming about. I hope I don’t spoil it when I say that a lot of the old worship and the legends were not just there fore filler. There is meat on these bones!¬† (more…)

Chapter Two

A drop of rain followed Allie‚Äôs bangs and dripped along her forehead then down her cheek. She reached her destination and paused for a moment to wonder if this could really be a school. The hedge walls surrounded the perimeter and came together on each side of an arch above her with a sign that read, ‚ÄúVigil Junior High School.‚ÄĚ It was more like a fortress straight out of one of her brother‚Äôs games. Her elementary school back in Hartsville had been no bigger than a small church and had one-hundred students making up all six grades. Compared to that, this new school was enormous. (more…)
