I am extremely pleased to announce that Lockwood Tower, my epic fantasy novel, is now available to purchase on Amazon, or read via Kindle Unlimited.
As readers of this blog know, I have talked about this book far too much. It has been my personal project for the better part of two and a half years, and maybe even longer if you count the brainstorming stage.
Here is the wonderful cover art by a very talented artist, who wishes to remain anonymous. I think it captures the essence of the fantasy genre in a classic way, and I hope it is well received – as well as the book itself! (Guilty admission: I’ve had this cover sans text as the backdrop on my iPad for many months! I love it.)
For anyone interested, here is the synopsis – or pitch – for the book.
A wand of destiny.
A heritage of war.
When a mysterious invitation arrives on the lonely shores of Peaks Isle, a family finds itself broken apart. For Garrett Dale, an orphaned orc raised by humans, the invitation signals a new way of life. But, change doesn’t come without trials.
Garrett is propelled outside his guarded community and into a world of arcane magic, landing at the elvish spell-caster’s academy. He hopes to tame the magic in his blood and prove that orcs can be trusted.
But, tensions are mounting in the north. The orc nation plans an attack on the elvish city of Lockwood, determined to become the reigning power in the land. When the orcs discover Garrett’s magical ability, he finds himself a pawn in a much greater game of nations. Can he free himself from prejudice and save his new family from destruction?
Well? Can he?
You’ll have to read it to find out. No spoilers here!
You can grab a copy of the book for launch pricing at the low-low price of $0.99. That’s less than a coffee at my local indie coffee shop, and a heck of a lot less than a McDonald’s value meal, which I am trying to get away from… Great. Now I have that on my brain.
So, there you have it. Links to the book below. If you like it, please spread the word. If you didn’t like it, let me know what didn’t work! A girl has no name, and a writer is always looking to improve.
Happy first of June, everyone!
