It’s Almost Time!

It’s Almost Time!

It’s Halloween, that spooky time of year when we’re assaulted by all things scary whether we like it or not. Maybe you’re into the creepy, supernatural side of the holiday, like me, or perhaps you prefer the blood and gore of severed limbs sprinkled across your lawn. Either is fine with me. I don’t judge. I will judge you, though, if you don’t take advantage of the super spooky Monster Weekend book sale event being held by my friends over at SIA this weekend!

Call of Kythshire – FREE!

Every once in a while I offer my ebooks for free to give readers a chance to jump into the Keepers of the Wellsprings series. I’m excited to announce that Call of Kythshire is FREE from 2/23-2/25 on Amazon!

My debut novel is a five-star fantasy series hailed for its thoughtful and detailed world, its entertaining twists and turns, and its strong female protagonist.

A swordfighting squire must unravel a sorcerous plot which threatens the peace of her country, Cerion, and the existence of its allies, the mysterious and secretive fairies of Kythshire.

Here’s a fabulous review I received on Goodreads from Owen O’Neil, author of the Loralynn Kennakris series:

I found this to be a quite enjoyable fantasy novel with an engaging main character and an intriguing plot that developed nicely. The world was introduced in enough detail to keep me informed without being burdensome, and the story is a good mix of lighthearted elements with more serious action. The prose is uncluttered and avoids straying into otiose verbiage in an attempt to achieve a “fantastical” effect.

The story is told in first-person, present-tense, which is not my favorite narrative style as it often leads an author into distracting circumlocutions to overcome this style’s inherent limitations, but it works here. For me, this choice did not add a great deal to the story; I think it could have been told as effectively in another style, but it flowed well and kept me engaged. The only drawback—and it is a minor one—is that as the narrative progressed and the cast of characters grew, the limitations imposed by the POV resulted in me finding some the secondary characters a bit indistinct, which made them a little hard to keep track of at times. But I wasn’t unduly bothered by this, and I feel this was probably better than introducing potentially awkward elements to give additional context and background.

Overall, I found this story to be an superior effort, especially for a debut novel, and I would recommend it as an enjoyable fantasy that leans to lighter side. I will be reading the next book.

Call of Sunteri is the second book in the Keepers of the Wellsprings series. It follows Azi and Rian and the rest of His Majesty’s Elite on a journey through Cerion as they escort Prince Eron and Pricess Amei to Kordelya Keep, where she’ll give birth to the new heir. Their journey is clouded by a mysterious darkness which makes tensions run high and threatens Azi’s place in the guild.

This second installment in the series  introduces a new point of view character, Tib, who is a slave boy from the desert lands of Sunteri. Sunteri has been overrun by Sorcerers, and its Wellspring all but drained. Tib finds a way to flee to Cerion,  but as he journeys to freedom, he begins to wonder whether his thoughts and motives are his own.

Call of Sunteri features several color illustrations depicting scenes from this fantastic, adventurous journey. It’s not necessary to read the first book first, but if you’d like to, you can download Call of Kythshire here.

His Majesty’s Elite Guild Hall

Standard
His Majesty’s Elite Guild Hall

A lot of the first book of the Keepers of the Wellsprings series, Call of Kythshire, happens in one setting: the guild hall of His Majesty’s Elite. This setting is one of my favorites in the books, because it’s a place that I feel like I’ve actually been to. I can picture the splintered wood benches in the sparring square, hear the ring of Benen’s hammer from the forge, and smell the wood smoke from the great hearth in the meeting hall.
