First and foremost, I promised you pics from our Annual Hanson Halloween Bash. Can you guess who I’m dressed up as? I’ll send a signed copy of the book of your choice to the first person to email me with the correct answer.
Before we get to the Notable & Quotable, we have some exciting news. After a few requests, we have set up a means on our website, www.bloodlinesreforged.com, so that fans can purchase a personalized autographed paperback with Paypal or any major credit card. The personalized books are $30 each, come with an 8×10 map of Stratvs, and the shipping is free. They are only available in the U.S.
This week’s Notable and Quotable comes from Roland’s Path, Book I in the Heirs of Vanity epic fantasy series.
Eldryn noticed more color in Roland’s face the next day, and his eyes seemed much sharper.
“Shall we see what the dwarves are having for lunch?” Eldryn asked.
“Yes, lunch. I have already shared breakfast with them hours ago. I thought that perhaps you could use the sleep.”
“Yes indeed,” Roland said through a yawn. “El, I feel like a new man.”
“Well, let’s get something to eat then. They are anxious to view the image of the axe but would not do so without you.”
Roland and Eldryn made their way hunched over in the short tunnels until they reached the Great Hall where they received a hero’s welcome. Roland ate like no man ever had before. Even the sturdiest of the dwarves were amazed at his appetite.
I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well.
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!
We are experiencing a significant delay with ACX in regard to the final approval of the Heirs of Vanity audiobook. So, please be patient with us as we work to get that out in the coming weeks.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of a winner in the audiobook giveaway of Heirs of Vanity, the boxset of Roland’s Path, Roland’s Vow, and Roland’s Triumph!
You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here; www.bloodlinesreforged.com. You can also find a few spoilers such as the lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on.
I need to tell you about Heirs of Power, by Kay Macleod. Here’s what Amazon has to say;
Those gifted with power don’t get to choose a normal life.
Another great tale to cross our desk this week is Where There’s Smoke. Is this an awesome cover, or what?
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. We just added a new page to our website where those videos will be showcased.
Here’s hoping you’re all surviving the Big Q and adjusting to the huge changes we’re all facing right now.
