read an e-book week!   Leave a comment

It’s read an e-book week on Smashwords, where authors are discounting their books heavily, and many are now free. But only until Saturday, so you need to get there now! At the moment I only have one book up on Smashwords (the rest are on Amazon), TO SERVE THE HIGH KING, but, during this promotion it’s FREE. So you should go check it out, and download it in whatever format works for you. (I do NOT recommend plain text format- it came out with no formatting whatsoever, not even paragraph breaks. Just one huge, run-on paragraph!)

So Read An E-Book this week. You don’t need a reader, you can read it online, or download to your computer and read there. The Kindle e-reader is free at Amazon, then go to Smashwords and get TO SERVE THE HIGH KING for free!

But hurry, it’s only until Saturday!



To Serve the High King   Leave a comment

There were once six wizards.
A thousand years in the past, when the last of the High Kings betrayed his people, when the magic of the Seven Kingdoms disappeared, the wizards died.
But now the magic has returned. Illean, a Scholar of the land, and Carac, a Prince from the one Kingdom that denied the wizards, must travel together throughout the Seven Kingdoms in search of answers.
Has a new High King been born? The crown in the flames, a crown with seven points, insists that he has. And now with war threatening between Kingdoms, Illean and Carac’s search grows more difficult.
With no wizards to control it, the magic spreads unchecked, and Illean herself holds a token that seems to prove a new, more troubling rumor – that one of the wizards has survived.
As magical creatures gone for a millennia return to their ancient homes, and warring Kings deny their very oaths, can Illean and Carac find a way to stop a second destruction?
For as they journey to the lifeless High Kingdom of Lychee, the two realize that the power to bring the errant Kings under control can only be held by a High King.
Or a wizard.
