I had a great time at JordanCon. Met some great authors and a lot of readers unfamiliar with my work. Hopefully some of them give the series a try. At the very least, it was fun mingling with other fans of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. Good people all.
(And yes, I am wearing my MST3K revival backer shirt. I’m quite proud of that thing!)
Time for that shameless review request mentioned in the title. My last two books are quite under-reviewed on Amazon. This limits visibility and affects how Amazon decides when to recommend the books to other readers. So I’m asking for your help. If you have read Priestess of War or Noose Jumpers, (Heck, even Troll King) and haven’t left a review, would you please do so? This would be a great help to me and my ability to keep doing this for a living.
I always feel awkward asking for reviews, but they are a necessity in today’s Kindle world. Thank you so much for helping.
Now for something more fun. Below is the first mini-preview for Behemoth. Mini-previews are short clips of scenes from the book, kind of like the glimpses of scenes you see in movie trailers. Each one will only be a few paragraphs long, but will give you a taste of what is to come. I try to pick these scenes in such a way that they do not spoil major plot points, however: Warning, possible spoilers ahead for those of you who haven’t read Troll King or Priestess of War.
This scene is from the prologue.
Xedrion put his hand on Xeldryn’s shoulder and though the Protector hadn’t chosen to favor his mother this day, Xeldryn knew that his father was proud of him. Xeldryn was the Protector’s first born son and thus was the first of his children to reach this vaunted day. He had the same fierce green eyes as his father and, according to the other adults, had the same sort of authoritative demeanor.
There was movement in the forest ahead. A dark-skinned elf approached, loping casually towards them on the top of the paths made in the Jharro roots. Xeldryn’s heart began beating rapidly as the elf drew closer. This was Yntri Yni, the ancient and revered weapon master of the Roo-Tan people.
“This is it, Xeldryn,” said Herlda. She smiled down at him. “You will go and find your tree now. Are you nervous?”
He shook his head. “I am ready.”
