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.

July: All Books for a Buck

2017

It’s that familiar time again. Not only is it the birthday of our country, but it’s also time for the annual Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale. The ebook pioneer is now 10 years old (!) and celebrating as they do every year: by discounting a whole bunch of ebooks!

Right now, you’ll find all my books on Smashwords for right around one dollar. The automatic coupon mechanic cuts everything by quarters, so not everything broke evenly. Therefore, some books are a nice, neat $0.99 or $1.00 even, others are $1.25 or $1.50. But everything is right around that $1 mark.

If you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about and maybe even admiring a cover and thinking you’d like to give one of my stories or novels a try, now’s a darn good time! Just go to my Smashwords page (by clicking here, for example) and scroll down to see all the books on their site. (Some of the newest stories aren’t up over there yet, but those are all a buck too, somewhere.) The coupons reducing them are automatic, so there’s no extra work for you.

Thank you for your support and I hope you take the chance to enjoy them for less!
