Release Day!

Well, it’s here. Surtr’s Fury is live on Amazon. For once, I even managed to coordinate the release of the e-book with the release of the print version. Well, at least one of the print versions. I’m still debating whether or not to do a hard cover version of the book. I’ve done the set up for the latter and ordered a proof. But I’m not going to take it live until I’ve held the proof in my hands.

Here’s the blurb:

Surtr's FuryTwenty-five years ago, the world changed. Rifts opened around the globe, releasing rogue magics that changed everything. Creatures once believed to exist only in movies and books were now real. People who once believed themselves “normal” found their latent paranormal abilities awakened and amplified. The land and creatures nearest the rifts were forever changed, whether for good or ill remains to be seen.

Either my parents had a warped sense of humor or they were forewarned about what my life would be like living as close to the North Texas Rift as I did. Why else name me Ripley after the main character in their favorite science fiction movie? Then they were gone. A basilisk killed my dad and Mom disappeared while investigating reports of rogue werewolves. At least that’s what I’d been told, and I never had reason to doubt it.

Until now. Someone attacked my home and my friends. When I discover who, they’ll learn it is never a good idea to mess with someone who plays with fire, literally as well as figuratively.

My name is Ripley Walker, and those responsible for hurting my friends will soon learn the error of their ways.

This book was a blast to write, even if I often found myself wondering what was going to happen next. Myrtle the Evil Muse was not always forthcoming with the plot. What did surprise me when I finished the rough draft was how long the book turned out being. Then I remembered it’s been a long time since I wrote the first book in a new series (a trilogy in this case). Add in the fact the setting might be modern day and the North Texas area but with a twist and, well, there was a lot of world building that needed to be done.

I hope you enjoy the book and tell your friends and family about it because I really did have a blast writing it.
