Sword in the Stars now available for PreOrder!

Hi, all! Well, this is a first for me. I actually have two new books about to come out within a few months of each other! Venom and Song, coauthored with the multitalented Christopher Hopper, comes out in late June. Then in August, my first book with AMG publishing, Sword in the Stars, will be released. Check out the preliminary cover art and the teaser below:

 
Haunted by memories of a violent past, Alastair Coldhollow wagers his life on the hope that a sword will appear in the stars and the foretold Halfainin, the Pathwalker, would come. Meanwhile, tensions simmer between Anglinore and the murderous Gorrack Nation, threatening war on a cataclysmic scale. The fate of all could rest on an abandoned child and the decisions of those who desperately seek to identify him. Sword in the Stars is the first release in The Dark Sea Annals series.

Wow... when I saw this, I made a strange hiccuping noise of excitement. That's never happened before...

MAKE IT COME FASTER!!! =D

Eldra said...

Looks awesome!! How many books are you planning to write in The Dark Sea Annals?

Patrick said...

Will you be doing an Amazon blitz for "Sword in the Stars," Mr. Batson?

WayneThomasBatson said...

Beorn: I'm honored to have contributed to the odd hiccup sound. Oh, and I love your cartoon avatar!

Eldra: I have 7 books outlined for the Dark Sea Annals. Seriously. ;-)

And Patrick: Ah, now that is a good question. I think an Amazon Book Blitz is in order, but it'll likely be closer to the release date.

Also a book blitz and Tribe contest for Venom and Song! WOOT

Seth said...

So it's confirmed about a tribe contest for V&S? Also, speaking of that, I don't mean to be rude but are we in the process of getting the prizes? I've had a few of my tribe members email me about that.

Also, I'll go ahead and say I am SO excited! :D So, should I not get it yet and wait for the blitz? That is pre-order it.

Scott Appleton said...

Way to go, Wayne! So it looks like yours is coming out before mine... it's exciting to see AMG push forward more fantasy!

Patrick said...

Mr. Batson, just give the word and your blog readers will swarm Amazon for the Blitz! I'm really anticipating this series...just the name "Dark Sea Annals" invokes such vivid imagery!

Patrick said...

Ran across this neat quote from a sermon by John Chrysostom, a theologian and bishop in the early church...

"Let no one grieve at his poverty,for the universal kingdom has been revealed.Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again;for forgiveness has risen from the grave.Let no one fear death, for the Death of our Savior has set us free.He has destroyed it by enduring it.—John Chrysostom, bishop of Constantinople; sermon, ca. 400"

"That forgiveness has risen from the grave" in Jesus Christ is such an encouraging thought!

Israle Surrnak said...
