I currently have 3 titles available for 99 cents in eBook formats, making it easy to try my work out or start one of my series.
The three titles available are:
The Exodus Gate, Book One of the Rising Dawn Saga
Crown of Vengeance, Book One of the Fires in Eden Series
Chronicles of Ave, Volume 1
You can get them on Kindle, Nook, or Kobo for just 99 cents. If you never have read any of my work before, I recommend starting with Chronicles of Ave, as it is a short story collection that contains a range of types of tales set in my world of Ave (featured in the Fires of Eden Series). It will definitely give you a good introduction to the kind of writing I do, characters, creatures, and my worlds.
It is definitely a day to celebrate, the release of the eBook and video trailer for Heart of a Lion, the first Rayden Valkyrie novel and Book One in the Dark Sun Dawn trilogy! We are gearing up for the celebration of the print version this Saturday at 5pm at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY, but those with eReaders can dive right into Rayden’s world today.
The video trailer was created by the incredible Kylie Jude of Frozen Creek Studios. She has composed Rayden Valkyrie theme music as well, which is included in this trailer.
As far as the book itself, here are the direct links to the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo versions. The synopsis is below. The cover art was created by Bonnie Wasson and my editor on this one was Scott Sandridge, both of whom I want to give a big shout out too! 🙂
If you enjoy dark fantasy/sword and sorcery, you will find all the goods in here along with a wonderful heroine! 🙂
Synopsis: Rayden Valkyrie. She walks alone, serving no king, emperor, or master. Forged in the fires of tragedy, she has no place she truly calls home.
A deadly warrior wielding both blade and axe, Rayden is the bane of the wicked and corrupt. To many others, she is the most loyal and dedicated of friends, an ally who is unyielding in the most dangerous of circumstances.
The people of the far southern lands she has just aided claim that she has the heart of a lion. For Rayden, a long journey to the lands of the far northern tribes who adopted her as a child beckons, with an ocean lying in between.
Her path will lead her once more into the center of a maelstrom, one involving a rising empire that is said to be making use of the darkest kinds of sorcery to grow its power. Making new friends and discoveries amid tremendous peril, Rayden makes her way to the north.
Monstrous beasts, supernatural powers, and the bloody specter of war have been a part of her world for a long time and this journey will be no different. Rayden chooses the battles that she will fight, whether she takes up the cause of one individual or an entire people.
Both friends and enemies alike will swiftly learn that the people of the far southern lands spoke truly. Rayden Valkyrie has the heart of a lion.
Heart of a Lion is Book One of the Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy.
Some quick good news first, and then the links to the second new release this week! 🙂
I got invited back to the Kentucky Book Fair in November. It will be wonderful to return to one of the best book events in the United States. Definitely something I am looking forward to.
