Cyber Monday Special: The Bow of Hart Saga Boxed Set!

I’ve had the boxed set for The Bow of Hart Saga out for a few weeks on Amazon and Kobo but it’s now available on Barnes and Noble, Smashwords (iBooks coming soon) at its Cyber Monday special price of $7.99. See what reviewers and readers have said about The Bow of Destiny, An Arrow Against the Wind & The White Arrow:

The Bow of Destiny:

“Solomon has his own signature touch that gives us not only something original and unique but will leave many fantasy readers waiting for more.” – Fantasia Reviews, 2016 Book of the Year

An Arrow Against the Wind:

“We have read more than a couple great books this year, and An Arrow Against the Wind is surely among them.” – Fantasia Reviews

The White Arrow:

“Fabulous conclusion to an epic fantasy tale. It made me laugh, cry, cheer, want to throttle characters, and beam with pride and hope.” – E. R.

Bound to prophecy, his destiny balanced on an arrow’s tip.

There are several tools in Scrivener that I use to help me while I write much like having a screwdriver or hammer with me while I repair something around the house. There are 8 tools you can use via Scrivener’s Inspector to help you as you write your rough draft depending on what you need to do.
