Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Promotion II

Mar 20, 2023, 4:26 pm

I'm starting a new thread, because the first one was getting really long.

As with the previous topic thread, this thread is for all book blurb posts, requests for reviews, and other promotional posts for Science Fiction, Fantasy or other Speculative fiction books.

Happy to give out a free Kindle copy of my novel The Starved God. Message me if you're interested. Here's a bit of blurb for you:

"You’re not even a discrete individual. You’re a node, in a network of other nodes, and you don’t exist without it. The network cannot be denied, because you’re not a lone animal. It’s in your very bones. Even a hermit defines himself by the network, his separation from it. I am a lone animal.”

God breathed into man vitality, perseverance, and to bind them, humility. And He mounted upon the firmament a Great Bridge, that worthy souls may reach the afterlife and prepare for the final battle with the forces of ruin and decay.

In the far future, humans are changed, our descendants moulded by adversity into new forms. The Widdith people worship their imperfect deity, their lives at the mercy of theocratic edict. Canna Dawn, an eccentric amateur naturalist, gropes for the secrets of life. A naive transgression forces him to join an exploratory voyage to the mysterious continent of Eyra, led by the charismatic and unstable Skuld Heel. The crew face the perils of the sea, privation, deadly wildlife and an enemy within. Canna's observations lead to profound insights into the living world. Contact with a hitherto unknown species exposes sinister truths, while a patient foe awaits Canna's return. Among the ruin of his people's hubris, a remnant of a forgotten age sets him on a collision course with everything his world holds sacred.

Just released book three of my science fiction trilogy.

Two adventurous people. A strange world. One goal. Unravel the mystery.

What would you do if you found yourself on or in another world? Do you have the skills and knowledge needed to survive or to make sense of what you see?
Thomas sets out on a hike he has done many times before. Taking only what he needs for the three or four hours he expects to be gone, he passes a vehicle in the parking lot. The handwritten note on the dashboard read: Not Abandoned. The view at the end of the trail was not what he expected—neither were the friendships.
Two adventurous people in an unknown world. Only their physical fitness and combined knowledge will get them through everything they may encounter.

Check out the complete series:

With The Sapphire Solution being on Kindle Unlimited for just another couple of weeks, I'm running a deal on it until TOMORROW. (Short-notice promotions seem to be my style!)

A disgruntled young chemist. A reformed noble thief. A grumpy, middle-aged lord. What could possibly go wrong?

Apprentice chemist Iggy's uncle won't sign her off as competent, even though he trusts her with Project Sapphire: researching a formula to erase forensic evidence. When she finds an alternative route to sign-off, she applies her energy to that, neglecting her assigned duties to do so. In a stroke of luck, this decision leads her to a sponsorship deal, but her benefactor has secrets she's unaware of.

After his recent adventure abroad, Lord Richard Hayes is now home: and on probation to keep his seat on the Council of Lords. He has plentiful funds, detailed instructions and a boring plan for honest living, but despite his efforts to fit in, everything starts to go wrong. He loses his only household servant, he antagonises a young chemist the first time he meets her, and he gets blamed for a burglary he didn't even do. The only bright spot is that making new enemies keeps life from being completely dull.

Stiff-necked Lord Huntley Angus detests frivolous young nobles who dodge responsibility for their actions. But when he secretly pawns his wife's jewellery to pay an unexpected debt, he gets entangled in a spiralling set of misfortunes.

You can pick it up for $0.99 (US) or £0.99 (UK), links as below:

I've entered *The Diamond Device* into this year's Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off. Previously, the book reached the semifinals of the Self-Published Science Fiction Contest, though comment was made it wasn't very heavy on the "SF" aspect. Let's find out how it does as fantasy :)

SPFBO is a contest where 300 entries are whittled down over several months. Of course, only one can win the coveted title. For a selection of the candidates that cater to a variety of fantasy tastes, have a look here:

Missed this on the first pass. Still learning my way around. Anyway, to the point. My first book, "Challenge Accepted" is available on Kindle Unlimited for anyone who is a member of that. I would love for you to read (and review, if you feel so moved).

Here is the description:

"The time for heroes appears to be past. Over 20 years ago, Trey ard Sliath and Serene na Ridire defeated the greatest threat their world had ever known. Then, they settled down to raise their families.

What do you do if you are the child of one of those legendary figures? Especially if you are naturally talented with weapons, like Serene's daughter, Athynae? Or unable to use a sword at all, like Trey's son, Athlain?

And what happens when you realize that there are still enemies to confront and threats to be faced?

Ask Athynae na Ridire, first child born on the island of Inis Bolcan following the end of the Darkening. Ask Athlain Treyson, eldest child of the hero who brought the Darkening to a close.

For these two friends, there is only one answer:

Challenge Accepted

The first book in The Unnamed Saga, a YA epic fantasy series. "

The tales of soft toys and witches

"The main mystery and the biggest dream of all the children of the town was trampled and destroyed. The children were overcome by despondency, and the parents could not understand anything, but they could not help in any way. The cheerful children's laughter died down, and it seemed that the city was covered with a gloomy gray veil. Various fairy-tale characters, who had until now lived in the dreams of children, began to worry. Children have stopped dreaming! And this meant that fairy-tale heroes would face a slow decline. If no one believes in them anymore, then why should they continue to exist? Then the Council of Magical Creatures met and began to discuss the situation."

Title: The Wizard and Other Short Stories Kindle Edition
Genre: Fantasy, adventure, romance

For ten thousand years the seven wizards of the Wizard Council of Eonor had governed and protected the Elven folk of Eonor. As their time was passing and no apprentice was born to pass on their knowledge, the council put all their knowledge and magic into the "White Book of Magic". It was established that only a true wizard could read from the book. A true wizard was defined as one who is born when a comet is visible during a total eclipse and can read from the book.

Gindon, a member of the council could not accept his demise. He sought to increase his power and extend his life. He wrote the "Black Book of Magic". He gave the "Black Book of Magic" to his daughter, Gelda, and sent her with the others, to the new land of Urot, Home in the elven tongue.

And so many years later, it was King Marcus Drakorne who married the Elven Princess Errisa, and soon their son Ferryman was born when a comet was visible during a total eclipse.

The people of Urot waited patiently for a wizard's apprentice to be declared for many years as Gelda, the elven witch of the Black Mountains plotted their demise.
