What is it?
Hi everyone. As the title says, I am now preparing to send out ARCs of my debut novel, Wake of the Phoenix. The release date will be at the end of September but this is your chance to get a look at an early release copy for free. All I ask is that you post an *honest* review on you favorite review website (and preferably Amazon, as well, if that’s not your go-to), and that you be specific about what you liked or didn’t like when possible. Most versions I send as ARCs will be e-books, but physical books will be available for purchase after release. Anyone with a strong audience is a candidate for a physical ARC copy.
When would I get this?
I’m starting to collect interested parties now. That means I’ll give it a week or maybe a bit more then examine the response I get and determine if I need to be selective. I would love to give a copy to everyone who requests one, so barring a pressing need to do something else, that is my plan. I’ll be contacting people about delivery of their ARCs in about 2 weeks.
What’s this book about again?
Wake of the Phoenix is an epic fantasy novel in which Arkaen, a nobleman with a somewhat questionable history, faces Niamsha, a thief trying to save her family, in an unexpected political clash.
War Hero. Thiefmaster’s apprentice. Traitors. Every title comes with a price.
Arkaen is a gods-damned saint. He sacrificed his childhood innocence fighting for the beleaguered rebellion in a civil war and relinquished a comfortable life with the man he loves to reclaim his place as high lord from corrupt nobles. Now, a hidden enemy is manipulating his lower lords into talk of rebellion, including the powerful Rogue Baron, who is slowly swaying the city into questioning every move Arkaen makes.
With the help of his near-omniscient lover’s gift of foresight, Arkaen finds a potential ally in Niamsha, a reluctant thief trying to pay for her brother’s education. But Niamsha owes an insurmountable debt to the mysterious leader of her thieves guild and failing to pay means death—for her entire family. When her guild leader demands she join forces with the Rogue Baron himself, she finds herself caught in a political battle beyond her skills. Torn between protecting her family and following her conscience, Niamsha doesn’t know who to trust.
If Arkaen can win Niamsha’s loyalty, he might just prevent a second civil war and the destruction of everything he fought to protect. Or he might get them all killed.
