Hi everyone, it’s a celebratory day here at Archers Aim. First, I want to thank everyone for visiting today and joining in the pre-release announcement of Curses Dark and Foul, my first fantasy anthology. Before I a go any further, I do have one request: please share this post in some way to help spread the word about the release of the book.
The title of the anthology has a rather grim connotation to it as well it should since all three stories involve a curse. Each of the stories places a main character in a situation of coping with an insurmountable challenge with a curse. Each one of the characters is in a situation where they likely have no way out but forward into the teeth of a inescapable fate. Dark and foul certainly well describes the circumstances for these characters which hopefully makes for an intriguing read.
Here’s the blurb for the anthology:
Grim words spoken. Foul intentions invoked. Curses never offer surrender.
Three tales of fantasy in Curses Dark an Foul from Amazon bestselling author, P. H. Solomon
The Black Bag: Coryss finds herself alone against three powerful witches. Young and foolhardy, she confronts her foes and challenges them to a simple contest. Hopeless, Coryss finds help from an unlikely source. But the dark and foul curses fly without mercy. Can Coryss save herself?
Shadow of the Beast: Sa’hatap serves the Seddessan Empire faithfully as a foreign conscript, his people merged into the political scenery of merciless overlords. An enemy tasks the warrior and holy-man with ending a curse upon the missing empress. Unwilling, yet with his people under threat of annihilation, Sa-hatap sets out to accomplish the impossible and kill an accursed beast that cannot be defeated. Will his sword and his faith save him?
For No Reason: Dax is haunted by the curse upon his village as the living emblem of the witch’s revenge. No one can kill him and his touch is death. But the curse will take Dax’s mind and transform him into a beast of retribution. His only hope is helping the village, but they hate him. How will he ever save himself, and them?

Solomon, presents three short stories of curses both dark and foul, where characters never had a chance. Yet in the darkness, the glimmer of hope, the slimmest of chance against overwhelming odds exists.

The book is now live on Amazon KDP: Curses Dark and Foul
As you read, there’s little doubt as to the danger in which all the characters find themselves. One curse may have been for a shorter period of time another curse may have stretched out for years. Either way the consequences are fraught with an emotional strain that reveals an underlying attitude toward life. Hopefully you’ll find the stories interesting and entertaining.
Thanks for stopping by today for the release announcement. Don’t forget to share the post with a reblog or on your social media. I’ll be in and out all day to reply to any comments. Have a great day!
