More Free Books and Zombies in Your Kitchen

First, the Zombies…

Or lack of zombies.

I had to go out of town last week for my day job to Columbus, OH, which is about 2.5 hours from my current home. The good thing about this is that Nate, my former college roommate and my friend of over 20 years (holy shit, I’m getting old), lives close by. So I can spend the night at his pace and make an easy 30 minute drive into the head office the next morning.

Years ago, I bought a big board game called Zombicide. Like 5+ years ago. I’ve played it probably 3 times in those five years. So I took it down with me and we stayed up till 1am giving it a try. It’s a fun game and by midway through the kitchen table looked like a George Romero movie! There are little grey figurines of zombies clogging the streets! I had taken some pics on my cellphone that I intended to share, but my damn phone won’t give them up!

I hates cell phones…

(Did I mention that I’m a tech-fearing barbarian?)

Anyway, that’s the (lack of) zombies portion of our program.

Now I have three book promotions to share with you!

Magical Adventures Book Blast

The first is the Magical Adventures Book Blast, featuring a dozen fantasy books of various hues. They all have magic in common and will disappear at the end of this week!

So don’t delay. If fantasy is your thing, click the image or headline above and go browse these wares.

Target Sci-Fi

If science fiction is more your thing (or if you like both) check out this batch of goodies. There are 44 sci-fi books there to choose from. 

The catch?

Same as the catch on all these deals. You’re trading a free ebook download for signing up on the author’s email list. Like the one you’re reading this email through right now. (Not so bad, right?) It’s one way we unknown indies can be discovered by you lucky readers. 🙂

More Fantasy, You Say…?

You got it!

Here’s ten more fantasy books, offered up via Pikko’s House and their monthly book lovers’ box. Every month it’s a different theme and this month–that’s right–is epic fantasy.

So there you go. More books than you can possibly read! (More than I can read, at least. I’m slow.)

Fantasy eBook Sale: End of Summer Quest

tarn-ad

Being the end of summer and beginning of another school year for youngsters, young adults, and even many grown-ups, I thought I’d try throwing up my first novel for a 50% off sale. Tarnish: The Thunderstrike Saga is now only $2.99, vice the usual $5.99 for the ebook. That price change should have kicked in everywhere by now, but if it hasn’t, just check your second-favorite retailer.

I slightly reworked the book description blurb for this event. See what you think:

Armed with a mythic sword and burdened by his father’s legacy, Wil Thunderstrike embarks on his first quest in this epic fantasy adventure.

Everyone knows the stories of the Colors Three. That trio of adventurers who traveled the breadth of these realms in the post-war years, stalking the traitorous Crescent Moons and bringing justice to those downtrodden left in the Dread Duke’s wake. 

Tavern masters have been spinning those tales for ten years. Ian the Black and Trevor the Red are ten years older.  More so, for the warrior’s life is a hard one.  And Gregor the Golden?  Most likely dead along a mountain pass, in search of more glory than any mortal man needs.

Who, then, will defend Redfield when evil rises from the Blood Marsh? 

Billy Cole is the sixteen-springs-old son of Ian the Black.  Maybe older.  Being the heir of a legend is a heavy burden to bear.  And though “Billy Strong Back” is used to hard labor, it takes more than strength to be a man.  And more than a sword to make a hero. But he’ll be one. Even if he must become a villain first…

Witness the birth of William Thunderstrike in this heroic fantasy epic that breaks the mold for gritty coming of age tales. Praised for its unique storytelling, engaging detail, and heart-felt characters, Tarnish stands alone in the annals of fantasy fiction.

Want more Thunderstrike Saga? Pick up The Prince of Luster and Decay, a Tarnish prequel!

It’s kind of long, I know But I’m not sure how to prune it back. I mean, I could prune it down, but I think this captures a lot of the good stuff. We’ll see, I guess. (Any suggestions are welcome!)

Here are some direct links in case you would like to take advantage of this very temporary reduction in price: Tarnish on Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and Kobo

I’m also experimenting with Bookbub Ads to see what happens there. I’m not expecting any miracles, but it’ll be interesting to finally give it a shot and see how it works out. (For you writer-types out there, I’ll try to remember to let you know via another post in a few weeks.)

While you’re at it, you might also want to pick up The Prince of Luster and Decay, which is somewhat of a prequel novella to Tarnish (features some of the same characters back in the war days.). Click here to find that book wherever you buy books.
