Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale

Looking for an escape from the increasingly moronic world that we, inevitably, face each day?  How about a break from force-fed alternative facts, twitter feuds, and what has become our new sound-bite reality, where celebrity has been exalted at the expense of substance?

Well, look no further.

Unburden yourself of the collective weight of the idiocy in this world by immersing yourself in another – a world where stupidity is often rewarded with a swift death.  Journey into a world of avatars, sociopathic demigods, tyrannical villains, and reluctant – but powerful – heroes.

Reflections of Shadow Book 1: NEMESIS SPAWNED and Book 2: WORLDS SUNDERED are both available for 50% off on Smashwords.com from July 1 to 31, 2017, during their annual site-wide promotion.

Reflections of Shadow: Worlds Sundered

“Alexander Ganainmh’s internal struggle has come to an end. The aspects of dark and light that warred within him have been made flesh, manifesting as two men – one the embodiment of all that was good in him, the other his malevolence incarnate. Now, as a new war between them rages, each man fights to eliminate the influence of the other, amidst a backdrop of love, lust, rebellion, and betrayal.”

Cross-Genre’d

As you some of you already know, I’m currently working on the revision of my second novel in the Reflections of Shadow series.

Progress has been incremental, but satisfying, nonetheless; and I’ve been having a lot of fun moving the story arc through a new, and really interesting, world.  TEASER ALERT: You’ll get to explore the chaotic land of Seteris in this novel!!! (I know, I just blew your mind, didn’t I?)

Much like the first, though, I find that one of the biggest challenges in bringing the second book to life lies in defining the genre (or trying to, at least).  Despite only promoting it as a fantasy series – to better align with the category definitions of many booksellers – Reflections of Shadow is, more accurately, a synthesis of FANTASY, SCIENCE FICTION, HORROR, PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER, MYTH, and even ROMANCE.  The story follows characters with such complicated and antithetical points of view, and the plot contains elements of so many genres, that it really changes each time that you read it…

Compared to Nemesis Spawned, which was mainly dark and foreboding – told, as it was, from Alexander’s point of view – the second book (title forthcoming, I promise) will be far lighter in tone and content.  It’ll incorporate some funny and romantic elements, and it’ll introduce a much larger cast of characters, some of whom with personalities so big that they can’t help but change the series with only their presence.

I can’t wait to share the new story with you, and I’ll probably post a few sample chapters in the coming months.  (I blew your mind again, didn’t I?).

Perhaps, by the time the next book is complete, a new genre will have been created which will better define the myriad elements of Reflections of Shadow.  We can call it FaScHoPsyMytRom… Fashosymitrom…?  Okay, maybe we should put a pin in that for the moment, and call it a working genre title…
