The Remortal - Urban Fantasy / Thriller

Hello Everyone!

I've recently published my first novel on the Kindle platform. It's a culturally diverse Urban Fantasy / Thriller with action, betrayal, and painful life lessons passed from a jaded immortal to a young man trying to make sense of the world. You can buy The Remortal on Amazon here

Here's a short blurb:

----------------------------------

Telly is a homeless teenager struggling to survive on the streets of Los Angeles, but he has just met a man that can make all of his dreams come true. His rich new benefactor only asks for one thing in return—something no one else has been able to do for two and a half centuries.

He wants Telly to kill him.

The man with the death wish is named Van, and he offers Telly an escape from the constant fear, hunger, and shame that have haunted him during his homelessness. Telly thought he had Van all figured out, until a chance encounter with a gun-wielding thug shows that bullets don't do Van the slightest bit of harm.

Van is much more than he seems; he’s an immortal seeking escape from a world he now despises. He desires a higher plane of existence, but in order to get there he must train someone to complete the grim ritual that will free him from the confines of his immortal body. If Telly can fulfill Van's request, he will inherit Van’s wealth, strength, and eternal youth. But he soon discovers that Van is a harsh teacher with a questionable sense of morality, and there are other immortals who believe Van’s plans for ascension could lead to something they’ve been dreading for centuries: the birth of a wrathful god.

Any plans for making it available in epub (preferrably not at B&N only, what with them only selling to Americans)?

Hello Anke,

I am currently exploring other format options for the book, but Kindle was the easiest and most familiar, so I went with that one first. There will certainly be an ePub version available in the future once I've finished some other projects. Hopefully it will be in late May, but I can't make any guarantees at the moment

Actually, that's rather bad news. The idea is is for Apple to sell no eBooks at all.

The Remortal on Nook

Through the power of Smashwords, I bring you the Nook version of The Remortal

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-...ler/1104361318

Some reviews from the Amazon page for The Remortal:

"If you've never been to Los Angeles, don't worry you'll jump in and soon be walking about. Set in the modern day suburban city, our heroes and antagonists intertwine in this piece on social civility between immortals."

"Ramsey Isler succeeds at the neat trick of portraying a realistic LA that is vast and anonymous enough to contain the characters and plot of this urban fantasy. Well done!"
