Yesterday I did go beyond counting readers of The Fireborn on the fingers on one hand to two, then all of my toes, and ended up needing that abacus I talked about ;) The rankings did spike for a while – I was #8 and #5 in Arthurian Legends in UK and Canada respectively for most of the day. Odd, although I used a lot of Arthurian Legend in the book, I never placed it there. Of course, this morning the numbers are back about were they were two days ago. It is nice to have the surge, though.
Thank you to everyone who went out and picked it up! If you read it and like it, please go back to Amazon and leave a review.
Although the sale is over, it isn’t too late to get a copy. Of course you’ll have to pay for it ;)
What is The Fireborn? Or, if we are talking about the characters, what are the fireborn? I’m glad you asked!
In the shadowy area where myth and history collide….
If you haven’t seen it, here is a little intro video I did before I launched the book.
Still not sure?
In the shadowy area where myth and history collide, an unlikely hero is forced to save the world from an ancient Celtic curse. Dr. Elliot Everett-Jones knows that shadowy area well, having spent most of his life exploring its dimensions as given by a host of unreliable sources and imaginative speculation. Some would say he daydreams over the improbable plots of second-rate Romantic era authors. These fantasies, however, come to life after the discovery of the Cauldron of the Dead.
When the Cauldron produces the evil fireborn, Elliot is forced to confront an army of these mythic undead with nothing but his obscure knowledge and the hope of finding the legendary Lady of the Lake to give him Author’s sword. Even more frightening is the idea that he might have to confront his ex-wife, Eleanor.
The Fireborn is part joyful romp through history, myth and legend, and part fast paced adventure set in modern England and New York. The entire book, though, revolves around Elliot’s relationships with a large variety of characters. These relationships form the key that may unlock the mystery or lead to utter defeat.
For more information, I wrote a series of posts about it. You can find links to them on The Fireborn page.
I hope you enjoy!
