(blogger note: this Post is being driven by three espressos gulped down in five minutes flat. Yee-haw!!!!!)
Truth be told, I kinda suck at pitching my work. Great with ideas, very strong on character, fantastic at writing it all down. But pitching? Meh.
I mean, let’s face it, brevity has never been my strong suit. But it’s a must and I’d feel better kinda sorta maybe figuring out how to do it now instead of waiting until the storm hits.
So, for those wondering “what’s this book about?”, I’ve gone ahead and boiled it down to a single, simple sentence.
Tormented by demons, an immortal man confronts his violent past.
And The Martuk Series, the ongoing collection of Short Fiction (currently being adapted into graphic novels) inspired by Martuk … the Holy:
Surrounded by a dying King, power-hungry Priests, and a Queen sliding into madness, an Almost King battles an ancient Darkness.
Driven to rule and afraid to die, a powerful Priest sacrifices all in pursuit of “an end that never ends” from a Darkness older than Time.
Martuk … the Holy: Proseuche , the sequel to Martuk …, is scheduled for a late-2013/early-2014 release with the third in the series Martuk … the Holy: Shayateen due in early 2016. And I’m working my butt off to get Red and Gold, the third installment in The Martuk Series, ready for a September 2013 release.
After that, I’m strongly considering perhaps as many as three full-length spin-off series based on a few of the ancillary characters which have captured my imagination.
What can I say? I’m a glutton for punishment and, evidently, love being chained to my keyboard. Feeling the need for a fourth espresso in five, four, three, two … (^~^)
