Coolest Kickstarter Ever!
Three Good Friends Join Together
I’m excited to share that three of my good friends in the fantasy author community have combined forces to launch their new books with a Kickstarter called “New Year New Books” that starts today, January 2nd, and will run through February 1st. The Kickstarter features five new books and three new series from these awesome authors. The books are as follows:
The Seven: Unforgiven by John G. Hartness, a high fantasy take on The Seven Samurai
It’s the story of Qabil, a young man who learns that his mother was a member of the legendary mercenary band known only as The Seven. But it’s how he finds out about her past that sends him on a quest for justice: she’s been murdered by one of her old companions.
Now, Qabil must find the remaining members of The Seven in order to hunt down one of their own and balance the scales for his mother’s death.
If he survives, he’ll be a legend.
But first, he has to survive.
Stone Cold Witch by Patrick Dugan, an urban fantasy set in Asheville, NC
Jess Flood, an inexperienced elemental witch, splits her time between leading brewery tours and being a vital part of her coven. When one of the nine members of her inner circle ends up dead in a Harris Teeter parking lot, Jess finds herself forced into battle against a demon lord bent on conquering humanity. She has to quickly master her magic and stop this fiend before he emerges from Asheville’s nexus portal and all hell literally breaks loose. To make things worse, there’s a traitor in the coven, so instead of trusting the other witches to watch her back, Jess has to watch her own.
Songs of the Ascendant by Darin Kennedy, the first three books in a 80s pop music fueled contemporary fantasy – Shadows of the Night, All Fired Up, You Better Run
It’s the story of Ethan Harkreader, stage tech for the number one pop star in the world; Rosemary Delacroix, the latest in a line of female warriors whose charge is to defend the world from darkness; and Persephone Snow, the imperiled pop star who brings them together.
As dark forces converge to abduct Persephone, Ethan inadvertently becomes the recipient for an ancient mystical power meant for Rosemary, and now the two of them must join forces to save Persephone from a terrible fate. This trio from three different worlds are brought together in a crucible of fire and forced to survive against everything the Ascendant world can throw at them.
Sparks will fly, hearts will be broken, and heroes will be made.
