Thanks Everyone!

Fireborn SOCIAL MEDIA USE

Yesterday I did go beyond counting readers of The Fireborn on the fingers on one hand to two, then all of my toes, and ended up needing that abacus I talked about ;)  The rankings did spike for a while – I was #8 and #5 in Arthurian Legends in UK and Canada respectively for most of the day.  Odd, although I used a lot of Arthurian Legend in the book, I never placed it there.  Of course, this morning the numbers are back about were they were two days ago.  It is nice to have the surge, though.

Thank you to everyone who went out and picked it up!  If you read it and like it, please go back to Amazon and leave a review.

Although the sale is over, it isn’t too late to get a copy.  Of course you’ll have to pay for it ;) Continue reading

Cover Reveal – The Fireborn!

Fireborn Cover

In the shadowy area where myth and history collide…

Do you see that wonderful picture at the top?  That’s right, that is the cover of The Fireborn!  Don’t you just love it?  As with the cover of Seasons of Imagination, this picture was created by the multi-talented Belinda Borradaile from over at Idiot Writing.

I couldn’t be happier with the cover.  I hope you like it too!

Mark your calendar – the official release will be on August 21!

The Fireborn (Character) from The Fireborn (Book)

In the shadowy area where myth and history collide…

A couple of weeks ago I introduced our hero, Elliot.  Sure, he can seem a little ridiculous at times, but often people who can imagine the unimaginable are just the people you want when  the nightmare is real.  And what is the nightmare?  Remember the cauldron that I talked about?  The one that Elliot’s brother, William, discovered?  As I stated last week, Elliot thinks that the cauldron is the Cauldron of Resurrection of Celtic myth.  He fears it could be used to create the dreaded fireborn.  Yeah, seriously.  Just what we don’t need running around the world!  Scared?

What are the fireborn, you ask?

When a dead body is placed in the cauldron, an un-dead warrior emerges.  The warrior is blue, like the heart of the flame, with red hair that stands on end, like the tip of the flame.  The body burns with an internal fire and can wear no clothes.  And they are warriors, almost unstoppable and chopping anyone in their way with their sharp swords.  This is a fireborn.

Why Blue? Why Nude?

Dying Gaul

When I put up a post about the blurb for my book The Fireborn somebody asked me why the title characters are described as “naked blue zombies”. She thought the “naked blue” part sounded like a gimmick or something that came up for a laugh. Actually, the “naked blue” part was the first thing I thought of and the story is based around it.

What Do You Think of This Blurb?

Fireborn

Although I haven’t kept secret the fact that I wrote a book last year, I rarely bring it up. I did have one post dedicated to the book a month or two ago (or three) but it wasn’t my most well received post. In fact, no matter how you count it, from views to likes to comments, this was possibly my least popular post to date. So, needless to say, I haven’t said much about the book since.

That’s about to change.
