iAi Book of the Month: Bones of the Earth by Scott Bury

This month's iAi featured book of the month is The Bones of the Earth by Scott Bury.

(Personal endorsement: Buy it, it's really good!)

Some details:  

The Dark Age, eastern Europe: the earth has decided to rid itself of humanity with earthquakes, volcanoes and new plagues. Civilizations, even the mighty Roman Empire, crumble under the pressure of barbarian waves that are fleeing worse terrors.

Rejected by his own people, pursued by a dragon, young Javor heads for Constantinople, the centre of civilization, looking for answers to the puzzle of his great-grandfather’s dagger and the murder of his family.

On the ancient, crumbling Roman highway across haunted, deserted Dacia, Javor rescues the beautiful Danisa from a human sacrifice. He cannot help falling in love with her. But Danisa has her own plans, and when she is kidnapped again, Javor has to wonder: what is the connection between his dagger, his lover and his enemies?

"There's been an awakening… Have you felt it?"

Why yes, I have. J.J. Abrams has released the teaser trailer for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - The Force Awakens and that's exactly what it is, a teaser. Not much in the way of actual plot info, but tons of cool imagery, some intriguing characters, and...the Millenium Falcon!. I'm encouraged!

Littlest Pet Shop: If You're a Guy/International versions

I recently stumbled across this Wikia page featuring international versions of "If You're a Guy," a season one Littlest Pet Shop song written by myself and composer Daniel Ingram. For some reason, I think it's pretty funny to see our song being performed in another language. I particularly enjoyed the Russian version which you can see below.

Now on Kindle, Undrastormur: A Viking Tale of Troublesome Trolls

My novelette, Undrastormur, has just been published and is available through Kindle for $0.99.
 Here's the description:
"Eirik has a problem. A lot of problems, actually. While he was out gathering mushrooms, his small Norse village was overrun by nasty trolls with a taste for human flesh. Now Eirik, the last surviving descendant of Drengur Darkbeard, a powerful Viking galdrakarl or wizard, must undertake a perilous journey to find the missing half of Drengur's iron staff. Only then can he save his neighbors by calling down the undrastormur, a violent and powerful gift from Thor, the god of thunder."
Originally released as part of the awesome Wonderstorm anthology (see link in the sidebar), I thought my little story of a Norse boy's bravery in the face of a troll attack deserved some love of its own.

I hope you agree!

You can purchase Undrastormur here:
Amazon US (Kindle)

Undrastormur is also available through Amazon's KDP Select in the following countries: UK, India, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.

My "Real" Book is Really Here!

Paperback copies of Giantkiller have arrived and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. I'm aware some folks say we'll all be pleasure reading exclusively on our Kindle or Nook within the next few years (and I know some indie author friends who only publish digital editions of their books), but I really hope it doesn't work out that way. There's nothing more satisfying than leafing through a real, honest to goodness book, imo. Even more so when your name is on the cover. :)

What do you think? Am I a dinosaur in this regard? Have you gone all digital?

Giantkiller (Leonard the Great, Book 2) is Now Available

After years of writing and years of editing, my book Giantkiller (Leonard the Great, Book 2) is finally available! To quote my author pal, Keith Robinson:
"At last! And I really mean that. At. Long. Last!" 
Yup. It's taken far too long to get this Dragonfriend sequel up and running (life and laziness intervened on a consistent basis) but now it's here and I couldn't be more excited.

I hope you'll like it and if you do will consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads (or anywhere else). You wouldn't believe how much this helps.

Here's the back cover desciption:
 Several seasons have passed since Leonard went on his last great adventure and battled a sinister force that had taken over Camelot. Since then he’s settled into a comfortable life as Lord of the Green Valley. But when his beloved Glennys is threatened by a cruel giant from a kingdom in the clouds, Leonard and his best friend Hubert must team up again with Merlin, the half-giant Ham, and a young dragon named Taddy to save her before it’s too late.
Sounds exciting to me!

The Details:

Giantkiller is available as a paperback and a digital download on Obligatory links:

Kindle Version (US)

Paperback Version

Giantkiller and Dragonfriend are also available, worldwide (UK, IN, DE, FR, ES, IT, JP, BR, CA, MX, AU), through KDP Select so check your "local Amazon store" if you live somewhere outside the US (at this time, both books are English language only).

BONUS: Amazon's offering a cool feature where you can get the Kindle edition for FREE when you purchase the paperback. Not too shabby, I say.

Now, on to Book 3 (which, hopefully, won't take me as long to finish)!

Watch Kid Cosmic!

Any other fans of Kid Cosmic out there? I just finished watching the second season of this fun, action/comedy superhero series created by C...
