Currently, until August 25th, 2015, four copies of my third novel, Hounds of the Hunted are in a giveaway on Goodreads at the light blue link you just read passed. Right now, your odds are about 1 in 12 to win. Those are pretty good odds for a free shot.
Also, I will be in Spokane, Washington, for the 73rd world Sci-Fi Convention from Aug 19th until Aug 23rd. If you are there, please stop by and see me in the dealers’ room. I’ll have many titles with me, including several out of print anthologies. I’m not sure where my group will be located, but I’ll be with Jeffrey Cook (Steampunk author) and several other sci-fi and fantasy authors from the Pacific Northwest area.
It will be fun to meet you, please stop by.
So, Hounds of the Hunted was expected to be out today. It isn’t out yet.
The final read-through turned up some good spots that needed a bit of altering — nothing major, but time consuming. My awesome proofreader found a bit more stuff than I found and those little tweaks need to be made. I need a couple (2?) more days and by the weekend (June 19th), it will be out. It really is that close to release. I just overshot my target a little.
Here is the Prologue just for you. The book synopsis is on the picture above. Popalia and Wynkkur are the central protagonists of the story. Popalia is a priestess of an agnostic god and she is falling from grace as the evils of the world are wearing her down. Wynkkur a self taught wizard whose abilities are more likely to cause problems than fix them. Not in a sweet and cute kind of way, but in a “Oh, wow, we are going to prison for my mistake,” kind of way. This is a story about outlaw heroes.
I hijacked Ed’s blog. Edward is the living authority on ‘Weird Westerns.’ He writes cool stories about a demon hunter in the old west, a voodoo doctor on a slaver’s ship, and Van Helsing’s adventures in America. To see what I wrote on his blog, and learn more about Edward M. Erdalac’s awesome stories, follow this link.
Two great books that read well together.
