|This week’s Notable and Quotable from the Bloodlines Reforged Saga.|
|This week’s Notable and Quotable comes from one of our pen & paper RPG sessions a while back. The NPC Head Cleric (secretly evil) commands the party while pointing at a King’s knight just entering the room, ‘seize him!’ The fighter (who shall remain unnamed for the protection of the guilty) responds, ‘yeah.’ The cleric reiterates, ‘seize him!”, again pointing at the knight. The fighter responds, ‘yeah, I sees him too…. OH! seize him, not sees him, I get it.’ |
I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well. It’s a bit early to announce it, but we will be giving away ebooks of Roland’s Path, Book I of the Heirs of Vanity Series, for one day and one day only on Friday, July 31st. Plan accordingly.
If you’re looking for a starter into the Bloodlines Reforged Saga, Fires that Forge and/or Roland’s Path are the starting blocks. The complete first trilogies of both are available on Amazon and can be found here; Heirs of Vanity and Lords of Order & Chaos. We have at least two more series planned (Orphan’s Blade and Templar’s Rebellion) that will go into the over all Saga. Each series is set up to stand alone, but you will find a deeper understanding of all the characters involved if you read all the series. Please consider leaving us a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Thanks!
I also need to let you know about USA Today bestselling author Adrienne Woods’ new book, Darkbeam. Here’s what Amazon has to say, “PLEASE NOTE THAT IT’S A DARK FANTASY AND NOT FOR YA,
Everyone in Paegeia knows that only one Rubicon dragon lives at a time.
If more than one, they will destroy Paegeia and eventually the rest of the world as they crave that constant power for dominance.”
We’re also participating in the Fantastic Shorts Quick Fantasy Reads Giveway this month! What a great collection of short fantasy tales available for download FREE!
On the home front, we’re going to begin creating a few videos of me reading segments of Roland’s Path and Fires that Forge which can be found on our Facebook page here; Facebook Bloodlines. I’ve also begun work in earnest on Stalking Shadows, Book IV of the Lords of Order and Chaos Series.
In other news, some of you know I’m also a HUGE pen & paper RPG nerd. I had the chance to meet up with my gaming group from years ago this past weekend and did a ‘Guest GM’ spot for them and their new group. I’ve gotta say, I’m terribly envious of my buddy’s gaming room in that it’s a small building dedicated to nothing but! (pictured below) We all had a pretty good time but I did notice a lot of note-taking during the session. In retrospect, perhaps re-reading Machiavelli’s The Prince was a bad idea in that there were multiple assassination plots taking place simultaneously.
I am often asked, as I’m sure many other authors are, ‘where do you get your ideas?’ Well, above is the answer. Ideas are easy, it’s the execution of actually getting them written that’s difficult.
Here’s hoping you’re all surviving the Big Q and adjusting to the huge changes we’re all facing right now. Let me know how you’re doing. Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with word of how you’re doing, questions about our tales, or comments about the story or the world of Stratvs. If you enjoy our brand of ‘humor’ or just want more frequent updates, you can follow us on Facebook here; Roland’s Quest!
Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
