Calling All Bloggers! Free Books!

(I knew the 'Free Books' would get your attention even if the rest of the title didn't. ; ) )

Hey, everybody! As you know, my short book, A Knight on the Old North Shore, is coming soon, and I'm looking for a few enthusiastic readers to help me give it a good welcome into the fiction world.

Intrigued? Read on.

If you:

-Love to read
-Love fantasy
-Love old-fashioned storytelling and poetry
-Have a blog
-Love writing book reviews

...then send an email to editor(dot)thewriterslair(at)gmail(dot)com and tell me so. You could receive a free advance copy of A Knight on the Old North Shore! In exchange (okay, so I guess it's not entirely free if I'm asking for something in exchange, but...whatever) I'm asking you to write a review of the book (be honest--I want your sincere opinion, and you're not obligated to say you like it if you don't) and post it to your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, whatever you have. Once the book releases, I also ask that if you have an Amazon account you post your review on the book's Amazon page as well.

I'm only giving out five advance copies of the file, and it's first come, first served, so don't be shy and don't wait around!

Coming Soon: My New Release!

That's right! Since the release of my novel last November, I've been hearing from lots of you who read my book and wanted more. (Thanks, by the way! There's no better way to make an author's day!)
The sequel to The Song of the Wren-Falcon is still in the works...but it is in the works, never fear! So to tide you all over until it gets here, I'm releasing a mini-book collection of some of my short works.

A very few of you may remember my poem, A Knight on the Old North Shore, from several years ago. For those of you who don't remember, it was the first work I ever published, back in 2009. The interesting thing is that today, among those who know it, it is still by far my most popular and loved work.
So it seemed appropriate to make it the title work of this collection. It will appear alongside three other works, two short stories and another poem.
The official release date isn't set yet, but it will be soon, and of course I'll let you all know. This will only be available as an e-book, since it's so short (printing wouldn't really be cost effective for anyone involved), but it will be available in multiple formats, so no matter what e-reader you use, you'll be able to get it.
Stay tuned--I'll keep you updated on its release!
