Shadows of the Hersweald: Launch Day!!!

It is here!!! Shadows of the Hersweald is live and you can now buy and read it at your pleasure!

forestofdarknesslowres

They would have to come that afternoon. Haydn glared at the rutted road twisted away from the gate beneath him, slithering into the shadows of the Harsweald. And what was the flaming idea behind leaving him in charge? Nerthach in the hands of a criminal… that would put them all in the good graces of the province governor, no questions asked.

A battered soldier from a defeated army, Haydn knows there is only one end to the arrival of the Prince’s governor. Except he hasn’t counted on the Prince himself. Or the pardon which his recent foe has declared to acquit all those who fought against him.

A pardon Haydn detests.

A pardon that refuses to punish the rebels now threatening his own village. And his sister.

Guilt-ridden from his own actions during the war, Haydn knows there are others who have no conscience at all. Others who are using the freedom of the pardon to forward their own desperate schemes.

With enemies closing in on all sides, a pardon that refuses punishment, and nightmares of murder and fire haunting his every thought, will Haydn recognize the truth or will his fear condemn everything he loves to destruction?

Although the history of Aslaria and the conflict between the Prince and the rebel, Tauscher, flow chronologically through the series, each novella in the Legends of Light series is a stand-alone story. Each novella focuses on one of the nine aspects of the Fruit of the Spirit while twisting fairy tales in a clean, exciting, and inspiring manner.

They would have to come that afternoon. Haydn glared at the rutted road twisted away from the gate beneath him, slithering into the shadows of the Harsweald. And what was the flaming idea behind leaving him in charge? Tregaron in the hands of a criminal… that would put them all in the good graces of the province governor, no questions asked.

Shadows of the Hersweald: Table of Contents Reveal and a Gift

Chapter 2: Unwanted Pardon

Chapter 3: Like Old Times

Chapter 4: Shadows and Flames

Chapter 5: Rebels

Chapter 6: The Firecarn

Next week the blog tour starts, so I wanted to add in the item that came in third place… as much because I love it as for any other reason. This is Haydn’s song. I like finding songs to match my characters. Haydn was very difficult. I’d given up before I found it by accident. They lyrics aren’t perfectly him, but the spirit of the song very much is his own struggle.

And now for the treat I promised… A free short story that prequels Shadows of the Hersweald!

Thanksgiving sale(2)

If you are signed up to my newsletter, you’ll have gotten a copy of this free story on Wednesday. If not, you can claim your free story by clicking HERE or clicking the picture above. 😀

Oh, and one final bit of unrelated info… Song of the Sword is ON SALE for $0.99 for all of this next week in celebration both of the upcoming Indy e-Con (which you can check out HERE) and because Shadows of the Hersweald is coming out. So if you want to check it out, but haven’t had the money to do so, now is your chance. You can go pick it up HERE!
