After a promising round of queries in pursuit of a traditional publishing contract; I realized what I wanted more than anything, was readership. I aim to connect with readers on a more personal level and build an organic fanbase for ‘The Innisfail Cycle‘… people need to be reading it for that to happen. Waiting indeterminate months/years in the query/rejection game– wasn’t achieving that. While querying, I did garner some professional interest… but I lacked a solid following that might have earned me a more beneficial contract. As an unknown author with a massive epic to sell; if I want to be taken seriously, I need a built-in reader base.

Having said that, I still intend that this series will find its way into traditional print, eventually. ‘The Innisfail Cycle’ is not the only series I have on deck, but it is the first to be completed. I hope giving folks something of mine to read, will help me achieve that ultimate goal.

What do you guys think about that? Are any of you flirting with the same idea– or as readers, where do you discover the majority of your new favorite authors?

The publishing process was a lot more complex and difficult than I expected. Took nearly a month just to get everything uploaded and formatted properly. I was massively underprepared! If not for the kindness and (extreme) patience of several individuals (Mike, Micah, Dee, and Sydney)– I might still be staring at the Kindle Previewer. In the end, the book came together beautifully. I am quite proud (and relieved) by the way it all turned out.

Have you read it yet? If so, what did you think? Hit me up on any of my Social Media pages, and give me the scoop. I wanna hear from you!

A Weekend in the Irish Otherworld

Thanks so much, K.M. West for this incredible review! Follow her blog for more brilliant, intuitive content!

Illegibly K.M. West

Nothing tugs at my heartstrings like mythology, and throughout the process of writing #theCollapse, I’ve discovered a bit of a passion for lesser known pantheons. I’m equally as prone to disappearing into a black hole of Wikipedia pages as I am to vanish into a well-written fantasy or historical fiction set against these beliefs, which is what brought me to the Irish “Otherworld” over the weekend.

Due to the kind heart of the author, L.M. Riviere, I was given a sneak peak at the first ten chapters of her upcoming release, ‘The Sons Of Mil’; Book One of ‘The Innisfail Cycle.’ As a foreigner to pre-Christian Irish myth, it took me a minute to acclimate to my…

‘New ideas wither, where Old Gods reign…”

On the continent of Innisfail, Old Gods reign. Following five hundred years of vicious conflict, the High King has negotiated an armistice between the immortal Sidhe in the North, and the human populations of the South; the Sons of Mil. In this land of treacherous magic and ageless blood feuds, the peace is precarious at best. 

An outcast with few loyalties, Ben Maeden has no interest in the political strife brewing in the South. Convinced a man without pride has nothing left to lose, he’s content to fade into drunken obscurity in the wilderness. That is, until a rare moment of conscience compels him to rescue a young noblewoman from a band of mercenaries. This auspicious encounter hurls him into the heart of a far-reaching conspiracy, for Una Moura is no ordinary girl. Branded a heretic and scourged by her own people, she harbors a secret that could spell disaster for everyone. Hunted by militant nobles, dark creatures, and ambitious zealots; Ben and Una find themselves in a desperate race to prevent a war. Though, not every enemy lurks in the shadows. Haunted by the ghosts of a former life; Ben may discover his greatest challenge lies within. Can he reconcile his past to safeguard Innisfail’s future, or is he doomed to repeat his mistakes… to the detriment of all?
