…And ending a book’s first day on the market in the TOP 50 of dark fantasy, as well as the TOP 100 swords & sorcery titles. THANK YOU, READERS.
Specifically…thank you harem fantasy novel readers from a certain Facebook group. I think this is an important lesson for everyone. Namely, someone posted a thread in this group–innocently wanting to know more about me, since this is my first time working in the genre of harem fantasy. Well! Let’s just say the thread got a little spicy, and there were quite a few doubting Thomases in the audience.
But now there are already quite a few unsolicited 5-Star reviews, and these from people who were in that thread. I’m so proud to have won some readers over already on day one, and so happy to be going to bed with Book I of THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA sitting at #45 in dark fantasy and #64 in swords & sorcery fiction…and #51 in dark horror, maybe because of the whole thing with Rorke Burningsoul, Paladin of Weltyr, consenting to become the pleasure-slave to a race of hot dark elves. But what’s so horrible about that?
Now I’m excited to see how much higher the book can get…and excited to know that I’ve already set to work outlining the trilogy’s second book. If we can just get Book I to 50 reviews, I’ll be confident we can release it to even greater acclaim!
Rorke Burningsoul, Paladin of Weltyr, has been betrayed.
With the object of his most recent quest stolen out from under him, Rorke has been left for dead in the treacherous Nightlands: a place hateful to all surface-dwellers, full of things the human–even the elfin–eye has never seen. Gray-faced berich dwarves, frightful half-spider misshapens–and, of course, the sensual and dark-complexioned durrow elves, a race of power-hungry women who live in service to the goddess Roserpine.
Praise Weltyr, Rorke is rescued by two such splendid durrow–and told that, in exchange for his life, he must now submit to slavery as, among other things, breeding stud to the female race. He willingly agrees, hopeful that his obedience will help him find a way out of the Nightlands and back to the business of retrieving the lost artifact: but when the Materna of the durrow city decides during his appraisal that she needs a new guard, he is soon surprised to find himself taken, heart and soul, by the exquisite durrow high priestess known as Valeria.
But Valeria’s need of a personal guard is not just some ruse to keep her new slave in her bedroom without controversy–would that it were. The high priestess’s life is at stake, and as her assassins’ attacks grow more frequent all the time, she needs the assistance of a man capable of keeping himself alive along with her.
Who better than a paladin she’s seen in dreams for decades?
