New “Well Wishes” Trailer

Well Wishes Cover_HUGE

As I posted yesterday, I’m having new book trailers made for my first three novels – “Winter’s Rite“, “Well Wishes“, and “Gauntlet“. The previously existing trailers used covers for the books which were designed by a publisher I’m no longer with. As the original, self-published editions of these three books are still available, I’m having the new trailers made, using those covers.

Check out the new “Well Wishes” trailer here!

“Well Wishes”

When the Princess of the Elven kingdom is taken by a Well Spirit, the Elven king enlists the aid of Avari, the heroic Water Nix who was instrumental in the fall of Veemox the Ur’hunglav only months before. After his attempt to free the Princess results in Fyrnn being taken by the same Spirit, along with the Princess’s best friend, Avari is off on an ocean voyage to a distant, near-mythical island with a reputation from which it earned its name – the Island of Death. Once there, he must confront the terrible creatures which haunt the island in order to bargain with the most powerful Well Spirit of them all to gain the freedom of the captive Elf women. But time is running out for the enslaved Elves. Will Avari make it in time?

#FridayReads is currently trending on Twitter. So, since I have nothing in particular in mind to post here today, I thought I’d might as well take advantage of the trend to remind everyone of my book titles that are still currently available:

Winter’s Rite

In a world where humans do not exist, dark magick has been used to bring an early winter down upon the land. It falls to a young Water Nix named Avari to seek out the source of this magick and put a stop to it. As his journey progresses, he encounters a myriad of other beings, some friends, some not.

After stopping a robbery in progress, Elliott Cronholm is approached by someone wishing help him become a costumed vigilante crime-fighter. After refusing, his fiancée is attacked in their home by a stalker. In the wake of the attack, Elliott accepts the role he had been asked to play. While still learning the use of the costume and weapons he has been given, Elliott must track down and stop the first man put on the streets of the city by the same woman – a man with his own warped moral code who relishes killing the criminals he fights, a man who wishes to kill Elliott Cronholm as well, upon learning of Elliott’s new role.

Rikki Breitenberg is an archeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning. When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

Quagmire Fen

Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.

Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.

Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.

What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?

Bunyips

Bunyip

Back in 2006, when I wrote my young adult book “Well Wishes” – a sequel to my first novel, “Winter’s Rite” – I included Bunyips in the story. They’re only in the book briefly – which is good, because those Bunyips taught me a very valuable lesson: never create characters that speak entirely in rhyme! Yet, those little guys have been very popular among my fans, and readers. However, they’re child-friendly fantasy Bunyips. Check out this article for some information about, and encounters that have been reported, regarding the Bunyips of myth and legend.

Here are some things fans and reader have said about “Well Wishes“, the sequel to “Winter’s Rite“:

“This is a story of true heroism and devotion to others.”

“You can’t help but love this little Nix who doesn’t back down from danger when he sees someone in trouble.”

“Avari and Fyrnn have once again joined forces to save others. They were successful once, but this is a totally different enemy.”

“Along the way they meet many creatures, Water Faeries, Water Guardians, Bunyips and Dragons. Some are evil, and some are helpful and kind.”

Cosplay

Several times people have suggested to me that a good method promotion at book signings would be to have a cosplayer with me, dressed up as a character from one of my novels. Sometimes people have suggested Wendy Markland – from my currently unavailable Wendy Markland series – would be perfect for this. Others have suggested one of the faerie beings from “Winter’s Rite” and “Well Wishes“.

What do you all think? Would something like that be a good idea?
