Free on Kindle: ‘The Sun Singer’

My contemporary fantasy novel The Sun Singer will be free on Kindle May 10th through May 12th.

Description:

Robert Adams is a normal teenager who raises tropical fish, makes money shoveling snow off his neighbors’ sidewalks, gets stuck washing the breakfast dishes, dreads trying to ask girls out on dates and enjoys listening to his grandfather’s tall tales about magic and the western mountains. Yet, Robert is cursed by a raw talent his parents refuse to talk to him about: his dreams show him what others cannot see.

When the family plans a vacation to the Montana high country, Grandfather Elliott tells Robert there’s more to the trip than his parents’ suspect. The mountains hide a hidden world where people the ailing old man no longer remembers need help and dangerous tasks remain unfinished. Thinking that he and his grandfather will visit that world together, Robert promises to help.

On the shore of a mountain lake, Robert steps alone through a doorway into a world at war where magic runs deeper than the glacier-fed rivers. Grandfather Elliott meant to return to this world before his health failed him and now Robert must resurrect a long-suppressed gift to fulfill his promises, uncover old secrets, undo the deeds of his grandfather’s foul betrayer, subdue brutal enemy soldiers in battle, and survive the trip home.

If you’re traveling to Glacier National Park, Montana this summer, take the book with you and experience the same trails and scenery described in the novel.

Book Sale: ‘The Sun Singer’

The Kindle edition of my contemporary fantasy novel The Sun Singer will be free on Amazon September 23 through September 27, 2015.

SunSinger4coverWith a 4.9 out of 5 star average in Amazon reader reviews, this novel set in a dangerous alternative universe has found some loyal readers during the course of its three editions. I appreciate the kind words.

The novel has been in and out of print, and I apologize for that. Let’s just write that off to disagreements with two of its publishers about how it should be sold and managed. Moving forward, I now have control of my own book and don’t plan for it to disappear again.

In fact, the sequel, Sarabande, will soon be re-released.

If you’re unfamiliar with  The Sun Singer, it’s set in Glacier National Park Montana–and a little known universe reached through several portals that the park service doesn’t know about–and features a young man on a family vacation who is suddenly caught in a war. He will need to resurrect his latent psychic abilities and learn how to use a sorcerer’s staff.

I’m biased, of course, but while the novel is free, this seems like a good time to see if it’s your cup of tea.
