“Gripping and vividly written” – Kristin Gleeson

“In a time when so much fantasy being published is grim and dark, it’s refreshing to find a book that returns to the beauty of high fantasy, with lyrical prose and an alternative history” Ted Cross

Seeking Smashwords/Barnes & Noble Reviews   1 comment

Front Cover UpdateThe Willow Branch is gaining some lovely reviews on Amazon, but it remains unreviewed on Smashwords and Barnes & Noble, even though I’ve sold some books there.

If you want to buy the book and review it, that’s cool.



But I’m willing to be generous just to get the reviews.

Want a free e-book?

I can do that.

If you want to review The Willow Branch, I will provide you with a free copy of the ebook. If you don’t like it, that’s cool — no harm/no foul. I embrace critique — it can only make the series better.

The deal is, however, that you put a review either on Smashwords and/or Barnes & Noble.

Contact me at if you’re interested.

So, this week, I’m offering anyone who reblogs my book promotions a free e-book of The Willow Branch.

This also goes for anyone who supports my Thunderclap.

Full Cover for CSI’m ordering my proof copy of the paperback of The Willow Branch.

I am NOT a perfectionist, but I do have a commitment to quality and I was determined to put out a paperback that had a professional look. Createspace doesn’t make it easy, but it’s now done to my standards and I’m ordering my proof copy to make sure it actually will look like what the digital proof looks like.

Lots of, uh, fun this last month getting this into shape. I learned a lot from this first book and the next book ought to go easier.

Now, I have to start writing Murklin Wood in earnest.
