The Experimental Notebook of C. S. Boyack

Story Empire Roadshow Featuring C. S. Boyack

Thanks for visiting today! Join me in welcoming C. S. Boyack, one of my fellow contributing authors from Story Empire. Also, welcome to a lot of new visitors today from various other blogs and groups including those from Story Empire and Craig’s followers. Take it away Craig!

I’m excited that my bookmobile is pulling into P. H. Solomon’s blog as part of the Story Empire Roadshow. It’s been a while since I appeared here, and in honor of this being a fantasy site, I’m putting my lone fantasy novel on sale today.

About The Book

The Cock of the South is a Greco-Roman fantasy with a mash up of traditional characters like Dwarves and Elves, alongside Centaurs and Amazons.

You’ll follow along with Cobby, one of the Southern Dwarves, as he discovers many downtrodden races. They’re all being persecuted by the empire of Remus, and he wants to unite them into one people for their own salvation.

The road is long, bloody, and filled with racial conflicts. I refer to it as part Exodus, part Spartacus, and pure fantasy.


The Southern Dwarves are a conquered race. Scattered and hidden they must flee the legions of Remus before they all become slaves.

An unlikely dwarf, known as Cobby, leads them to a place where they can live in peace. He discovers other downtrodden races along the way and recruits them to his mission. These include centaurs, Amazons, satyrs, and more. There aren’t enough of anyone to make a difference, but together they might stand a chance.

There are quite a few dwarf stories around, and I wanted to do something different with them. The setting is Greco Roman, and the times are brutal. This book contains violence, you have been warned.

It was fun trying to keep what readers expect from dwarves, and still add something different. Part Spartacus, part Exodus, I hope you will give The Cock of the South a chance.

You can download The Cock of the South for the whopping big price of 99¢ today and tomorrow only. I hope you’ll take a chance on TCOS, and would appreciate any sharing PH’s readers could do today.

Story Empire is a cooperative effort of six outstanding authors, including today’s host. We’re all on tour this week, and PH is over at my blog, Entertaining Stories. Make sure to come over and see what great deals he’s offering along the tour.

To keep people following the tour, I’m giving away two huge coffee mugs featuring Lisa Burton, my personal assistant and spokesmodel. These go to the most prolific commenters during the week at my stops.

The Experimental Notebook of C. S. BoyackThe Experimental Notebook of C. S. Boyack by C.S. Boyack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found this anthology to be very entertaining. The author’s stories were all well written. There were several that really grabbed my attention, 50 Gallons and Bombshell Squad, to name two. C. S. Boyack is underrated writer and I look forward to reading more of his work – especially Wild Concept. I had fun with the whole anthology. You won’t go wrong with this book of short stories. Boyack hit it out of the park!
