The Bow of Destiny Release News

Release day is just a week away and I’m really getting excited. A number of people have kindly offered to help spread the word over their own blogs. I’m deeply grateful for the kindness of my fellow authors and hope all the best for them. If you would like to read a sample of The Bow of Destiny, please visit the Goodreads page where you can also add it to your shelf to receive the release notice. Additionally, heres the book trailer:

BOD FinalI’ve got a number of upcoming posts here and elsewhere that shine a light on The Bow of Destiny. I’ll share about various characters and places in the book over the next few weeks. There are some locales that I’ve realized I drew upon without really thinking about them when I originally wrote the book. These are mainly places I visited when I was a child. It’s interesting where my ideas actually came from when a few might seem rather similar to other fantasy settings. But then I’ve noted over the years that more than a few fantasy authors set their own worlds in places similar to those they had visited or which they called home. I look forward to sharing some of these during the coming weeks and then some of them when the next book, An Arrow Against the Wind, comes out around next April.

Here are a few highlights around the release:

Now onto some fun stuff. As I’ve hinted at once or twice before now, I’m giving away some prizes on release day as part of the block party. To be eligible to win you need to live in the U. S. & make a comment on the main release page on 9/28. Rave Reviews Book Club will gather all the eligible names and choose winners. The prizes will be posted that day but I’ll share them now just to whet your appetite.
