Findo Gask’s Apprentice just 99c – and lots more bargains!

December 29, 2017 Findo Gask's Apprentice, Publishing/marketing 0

If you haven’t yet read this one yet, now’s your chance to add it to your collection for just 99c. Although it’s book 8 in the Brightmoon series, it’s a standalone. Here’s what one Goodreads review said about it:

“A fun spin through the Brightmoon world, somewhat more light-hearted than some of the other books in the same world. We follow Findo Gask, freed slave and woodworker extraordinaire, as he doggedly follows the prophecy given to him by the Keeper of Mesanthia.” “Along the way, he picks up an unlikely apprentice, Hopper, a young man with strange skills, and finally becomes a most unlikely hero.” “The book is tightly plotted and the ending is wonderfully satisfying.”

The book is part of a giant end-of-year sale. Lots of fantasy and sci-fi authors have got together to offer a great selection of reading, all for the low price of 99c per book, many of them also available from non-Amazon sellers. There are some great authors on the list, like Intisar Khanani, Miranda Honfleur, Lindsay Buroker and B R Kingsolver. Enjoy! Click the image to find out more.

Good news for non-Amazon readers!

If you like to read on a non-Amazon device and buy your books from Kobo, iBooks or GooglePlay, I have some great news for you. The Brightmoon books will be coming to your favourite ebook store this year. Yes, folks, I’m finally stepping outside the Amazon-only world and making my books available everywhere.

The downside is that they won’t be available in the Kindle Unlimited subscription program for much longer, so if there are some you haven’t yet read, download them soon. Once they’re on your Kindle or other ereader, they will stay there until you read them, but you won’t be able to download them for free for much longer.

Want to read the next book right away?

The next book in the Brightmoon world, Findo Gask’s Apprentice, will be released in July, all being well, but I realise I’ve made you wait a long time for it. To compensate, I’m going to post the whole book, chapter by chapter, on a blog so you can read it a bit sooner. It’s not quite the finished version – it’s a beta version, so there will be some final changes before publication. I’ll be shutting the blog down before release, so don’t delay.

The main character is new, but there are some very familiar faces putting in an appearance, both from The Magic Mines of Asharim and from The Plains of Kallanash, so for anyone who was wondering how Mia, Hurst and Dethin were getting on, or what Allandra and Zak were up to, you will soon find out!

The prologue and first few chapters are posted already, and I’ll be adding a new chapter every day. Feel free to post your thoughts or questions in the blog comments. Happy reading! Click to read.
