The White Arrow

You’re Still Here?



Hello and welcome to all the members from RRBC on the last day of the Rave Reviews Book Club Springtime Book and Block Party. It’s been an eventful month for the entire club. Let’s get some preliminary details out of the way before we go any further. There are two $10 Amazon gift cards available today and all you have to do is leave a comment with an email that allows us to contact you should you win a prize. I’m coming to you today from Alabama where it’s already feeling like summer!

I want to take a moment and express my thanks for all the support Rave Reviews Book Club has provided me and so many other authors over the last few years. I’ve been fortunate to meet a number of helpful authors over that time.

My Latest Writing News

It’s an honor to host today and I’ve had my own exciting week with the release of the latest edition of The Bow of Hart Saga entitled An Arrow Against the Wind. The book was finally released on 4/24 after a long wait on the part of readers and myself with a little announcement here on the blog. There were lots of delays in my life that held me up over the past year but I’ve been able to buckle down the last several months and complete the book. This is the last day of my celebration week and the book is still on sale for $2.99 until the end of the day.

It’s been rather exciting for this series over the last 6-8 months as sales for The Bow of Destiny took off last fall and sold in the thousands. During that time, The Bow of Destiny was name the 2016 Book of the Year by Fantasia reviews which completely stunned me. Some other interesting opportunities are available with the series that are in the works but I’ll address those later. However, I do hope to go to print sometime this year.

But, An Arrow Against the Wind is out and that’s the biggest news of my week! This book is the continuation of The Bow of Destiny and I think it will be quite exciting for readers. There’s already been a wonderful response from readers this week with the book appearing on a number of Amazon hot new release lists.

Books, Blurbs & Links

Haunted by his past. Hunted in the present. Uncertain what is real.

Athson has seen things that aren’t there and suffered fits since being tragically orphaned as a child at the hands of trolls and Corgren the wizard. When a strange will mentioning a mysterious bow comes into his possession, he’s not sure it’s real. But the trolls that soon pursue him are all too real and dangerous. And what’s worse, these raiders serve Corgren and his master, the hidden dragon, Magdronu, who are responsible for the destruction of his childhood home. Athson is drawn into a quest for the concealed Bow of Hart by the mystic Withling, Hastra, but Athson isn’t always sure what’s real and who his enemies are. With Corgren and Magdronu involved, Athson must face not only frequent danger but his grasp on reality and the reasons behind his tragic past.

It’s Here! An Arrow Against the Wind Released!

It’s been a long time coming but the release day of An Arrow Against the Wind has finally arrived. The book has been promised for over a year and many readers have asked for more during that time. I’m happy and excited to announce the book is now available for purchase on all retail sites.

There are a number of recent appearances I’ve made that have been posted on the News page. Today was my turn on Story Empire so I shared A Video Ode to Book Revision which compares the sometimes arduous task of revision with some fantasy videos. There are also blog appearances today on Bound 2 Escape and The Book Town.

I’d like to think a few people for some recent contributions. Staci Troilo over on Story Empire provided this nice piece of artwork:

Silver Dagger Scriptorium had this nice tour artwork for both books:

Also, Margaret Daly over at Rukia Publishing came up with this cool visual for their post of the new book:

My thanks for these pieces. They are wonderful additions to the series artwork.

Next, I want to thank all the readers who’ve already started the series and are already into An Arrow Against the Wind. It’s a privilege to share this story and I’m thankful for everyone’s patience, support and well-wishes for the new release. So many people have been so kind along the way, it’s amazing.
