One week to go now before Greyhart Press launches the first in a high fantasy series for fans of adventure, dry wit, and broad sexuality, The Lineage of Tellus, written by author and illustrator Lauren J. Hasbrouck.
We’ve more announcements to make over the next few days. We’ve acquired the rights to a contemporary spy thriller set in an America still reeling from the Edward Snowden revelations. The book topped the Amazon espionage bestseller charts last year.
And don’t forget that the mesmerizing The Death of the Wave was released last month for aficionados of literary science fiction.
But for now, over to Ashei, one of the characters in The Lineage of Tellus.
My name is Ashei Greyhawke and I’m just like you. I study at an academy, have a job, love my mom, and have a pet goat.
Well, maybe you don’t love your mom. That’s okay. My best friends don’t even have moms.
Now I don’t either. I found her dead last night. Her heart is missing from her body, and there’s no wound to speak of.
Tris says it’s the work of Blood Magus. You know of Magus, right? It’s this mystical energy that can be channeled into a staff. Tris is a mage. Well, a mage killed my mom.
I’m going to find that mage. And then I’m going to kill them.
