So I’ve been meaning to post this for ages (again, I’ve been busy sorry, I work too dang much), and finally got the time to do it tonight. So! From Goodreads:
An uber-short piece of gristly grimdark flash-fiction by Eric Fomley, and while I’m not normally one for short stories (my read history will point you in the general direction of the sprawling tomes I usually drift towards) I was very, very impressed by Forsaken. Consider me swayed to Team Short Story!
Eric’s first installment in what I’m hoping will be a long series is like a short, sharp shock, a lightning bolt of action, violence and bloodshed where the reader is thrust right into the middle of the goings-on. It’s graphic, visceral and overall extremely intense. I’m a sucker for brutally violent scenes and there’s plenty in Forsaken right from the off.
The world of this book is told more through glimpses and suggestion, and it very much reads episodically to me, almost like the pilot episode to a TV series in a lot of ways.
Eric has a knack for interweaving important plot dialogue around and between scenes of colourful, chaotic violence, and overall I found Forsaken extremely entertaining. I’ll be picking up the second book, Stormwitch, soon, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this series develops.
Ok, so it took all night but I finally got the internal map and paperback cover done for this month’s release.
So behold! There’s several weeks of toil, sweat and frustration in this, I’m no artist, after all. But in the absence of a budget to hire one for so short a book im happy with the result I’ve achieved (and extremely thankful for photoshop).
Paperback copies of To Brave the End will be up for sale on the 28th February 🙂 the eBook is already up for preorder for 99p, and I’ll be offering some limited free copies to people willing to read and review it for me too 🙂
Hello there! I that I’ve been silent the last few months on the blogging front. The end of 2016 was a mad scramble of adjusting to a new job and then adjusting to the ridiculous amounts of overtime I agreed to in said job (money calls and what have you), whilst also trying to write and finish up my first standalone novel – To Brave the End.
Finally though, I can say it’s finished and is now available to pre-order on amazon here for 99p.
The book will be released on the 28th of February in eBook and paperback formats on Amazon and other retailers, and I’ll be posting some updated pics of the internal map I’ve finally finished soon too.
Anyone who pre-ordered The Shadow of the High King last year please get in touch with me, as I’ll be giving you a free copy of To Brave the End as my way of saying thank you for your support!
