Edge of Darkness – Heroic Fantasy is live

Under the name “Tom Gallier” I published a Heroic Fantasy novel called “Edge of Darkness”

Here’s the blurb:

Karyn of Ohmsford is a young princess whose beloved father vanishes while she if far away.  With the forces of evil arrayed against her, Karyn enlists the aid of a holy paladin. 

 Together, they fight their way back to claim her birthright, only to find her brother has stolen it.  Betrayed by almost everyone she ever trusted, Karyn must fight evil paladins, dragons, orks, rebels, and giant bats before she can rescue her imprisoned father and free her homeland from the dark plans of evil gods.

So, anyone have any thoughts on how good, enticing, this blurb is?  All comments are welcome.

This weekend has been my best in KDP so far

I’ve sold more ebooks this weekend than the previous 3 weeks.  I’m a happy man.

Back up

I wasn’t able to  access this blog for a while.  I back, thanks to the people on Kindleboards and their great help.

My thoughts for this series and this blog

“Long Day’s Night” is a short story, with characters from my Black Heart series of Urban Fantasy novels.  At the moment, I have 5 Black Heart novels in the virtual pipeline of beta reading, editing, cover acquisition, and formating.  Unless something drastic changes, the first “Black Heart” will not be published until July, maybe August.

I’m thinking about starting an ongoing, online serial story with some of the minor characters (Sabrina, Heidi, Dane, Gabe, Bone Daddy, Desiree, etc…)  I haven’t decided it will be a neverending type story, or a series of self-contained short stories.  Both options have their appeal to me.  If anyone has thoughts on these options, please let me know.

Next week, an except from the first novel in the series, Black Heart.

Saturday Snippet

Here’s a snippet from “Long Day’s Night.”

     Sabrina looked him up and down, licked her lips and stroked her throat.  She panted lightly, then graced him with a come hither smile and slipped into the darkness between the two brick buildings. He growled and followed her.  The look in his eyes was sexy scary.

     She stopped and backed up against a brick wall.  She felt Heidi directly above through their link.  It was very reassuring.

     “This is not your first time, is it?”

     Her first thought was the German accent wasn’t as harsh as on TV and the movies.  His left hand cupped her cheek as he pressed close.  Her eyes fixed on his mouth as it opened, exposing his fangs.  She so wanted those fangs inside her flesh, too.

     “Get off her,” Sable said as she and Heidi landed to either side of him.

     They lunged at the Euro-vamp, thrusting with their katanas.  Sabrina pulled her pistol and knife as he surged straight backwards until he slammed into the brick wall.

     “You can’t escape, Korbinian,” Sable said.  “You’re reign of terror ends tonight.”

     “You must be Black Heart,” he said.

     Sable smiled.  “Good.  You’ve heard of me.”

     “Nothing good, I assure you.”  He stood straight, as if they were no threat to him.  “Say goodnight, girls.”

The Trials and Tribulations of an Urban Fantasy Writer

Here it is.  My new blog, where I plan to document my writing career, both traditional and indie.  I already have one story up on Smashwords and Kindle, called “Long Day’s Night.”  I hope to have more soon.
