September 2020 Newsletter
Not as much to cover for this newsletter, except to make sure I say upfront and center how appreciative I am for everyone who has helped to make the launch to A Testament of Steel such a phenomenal success. It begins with my publisher, Heroic Books and their amazing marketing department and goes through my beta readers as well as my wonderful ARC team. Thank you everyone!
The book has become an absolute bestseller, smoking up the charts, and garnering fantastic reviews. I’m humble and gratified that so many people have loved the book and are telling their friends about it. It’s absolutely humbling.
And just when I didn’t think things could get any better, I received two more wonderful pieces of news. First, the book was awarded the 2020 Reader’s Favorite best epic fantasy novel! Again, I am simply stunned by this. I never expected it, and my heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all the folks who run Reader’s Favorite, and to all the other wonderful books who placed in the competition.
Second, I can say I have officially signed on with Podium Publishing, and have that great company in my corner to produce the audiobook for the entire Instrument of Omens series. Of course, this starts with A Testament of Steel, and as before, Nick Podehl will be narrating, and the release date for the audiobook version of A Testament of Steel is Nov. 17th. I am so excited to see where this partnership goes!
Also, I want to point out that I’m still hard at work on the sequel to Memories of Prophecies, and I still hope to have it out in the first quarter of 2021.
BTW here’s a much shorter blurb for A Testament of Steel since I’m pretty sure y’all are tired of reading the longer version:
The elven warrior academy was always a foolish goal. They say he’s too weak. Too slow. Too human. But heart and will can overcome many obstacles.
⭐⭐⭐I don’t think I ever felt like that for a series in a long time . . . congratulations on a masterpiece!⭐⭐⭐
⭐⭐⭐I can honestly say that it is my favorite series opener to date!”⭐⭐⭐
