Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice Labor Day! It’s back to the grind and I continue to work on my next book, An Arrow Against the Wind. I’m starting to firm up my schedule and hope to get news this week from my editor about her schedule. My hope is to have this ready sometime in December – much later than I expected this year but then it’s been very busy for me with many other concerns.
UPDATE: I’m still working on the current revision of An Arrow Against the Wind and hope to have it out in January. I don’t have a firm date yet and likely won’t until I get it back from the editor.
The Bow of Destiny continues to be well-received with several more reviews that have come in over the last few weeks. One of those was the one I’ve share from Bookwraiths.com – a fantasy reviewer who has his own blog and whose opinion I highly respect.
Update: Sales are booming for The Bow of Destiny and it’s even made an appearance in the top 25 of one Amazon Top 100 list during October.
But here’s one of the latest I’ve gotten in the last day or so that I thought I’d share. I’ve got more to post so I’ll get to them over the next few days.
Exceptional – From Mae Clair on Amazon & Goodreads – 5 stars:
It’s been a while since I’ve read a fantasy novel and this book reminded me of everything I’ve been missing. A great plot, strong characters, cryptid visions, a quest, adventure, and magic. The writing is polished, the scenes vivid and the pacing perfect for keeping the reader flipping pages. Truly, an epic fantasy novel with twists and turns aplenty.
The author’s world is populated by humans, elves, dwarves, giants and trolls (among others), and he does a great job of giving each race its own history and distinctive traits, effortlessly transporting the reader to a mesmerizing realm.
What really engages me in a novel, however, is my attachment to the characters. From hero, Athson to the band of adventurers that gathers around him, I was not disappointed. I especially like the handling of Athson’s growing relationship with Limbreth and also the way he interacted with the withling, Hastra. Even after finishing this book, the characters are still dancing around in my head, the sign of a fantastic journey.
One of the best books I’ve read this year, I highly recommend The Bow of Destiny, and eagerly look forward to the next in the series. Let the adventure continue!
I’m very thankful for the time this new reader has taken to review my book and post it. I’ll keep working hard to make An Arrow Against the Wind even better.
Meanwhile, The Bow of Destiny remains on sale through 9/9 at least (who knows, it may keep selling so well I might extend it!). Thanks for following and reading everyone!
