RealmShift & MageSign, dark fantasy thrillers

Well, this seemed like the place for a bit of shameless self-promtion. If anyone likes dark fantasy/horror/thrillers with loads of action, gods, demons and intrigue then you might be interested in my novels, RealmShift and the sequel, MageSign.

You can learn all about them and download the first three chapters for free (PDF format) at my website: http://www.alanbaxteronline.com/books

You can get the full novels in print from Amazon or direct from Blade Red Press, or ebook versions in Kindle at Amazon, multiple formats from Smashwords or in a special bundle at DriveThruFantasy where you can get both books for US$5. Here's my stuff on DriveThru.

Have a look on the Books page at my site to see all the options clearly. If you do give them a go, be sure to let me know what you think!

Welcome Alan, glad you found MR and this corner of the web that is so great I'm currently working on covers for all your books (I do this as a hobby and because, well it's fun).

Here's a quick sneaky peak of one of them

PICTURE REMOVED.

Blimey, how strange! You could probably make a business out of that if you wanted to! Have you read the books or are you basing it on blurbs?

By the way, it's Ghost Of The Black, not Ghosts.

Blurbs mainly Just a bit of fun and well, I have to do them for my own stuff so I may as well get some practice in (Oh and they're all done in the GIMP).

Hey Alan, you got BRP onto DriveThru? You should give Dave a nudge and help him set up over there, I don't think we've done it yet.

Awesome work, as always.

Regards,
Ryan
