Wings of Fantasy, A Box Set of Fantasy Books

Recently, it was suggested that I put together a compilation of books together. After thinking about a number of the authors I knew and considering what sort of theme I could come up with, an idea came to me. That idea grew wings, wings of fantasy . . . and that's the name of the book I came up with, Wings of Fantasy.

The theme of the book is winged creatures in fantasy: dragons, fairies, monsters and even a city with wings. The genre is fantasy with full length books and a couple of smaller stories from Indie Authors who have been self-publishing their books for the last few years.

Each of these authors, myself included, has written and published a number of books that have caught the attention of readers worldwide. I invite you to explore the Wings of Fantasy and find exciting authors to discover.


Apple
Smashwords
Barnes & Noble
Kobo

Wings of Fantasy is a compilation of books written by six of the Indie World’s brightest upcoming fantasy authors. Let your imagination soar as you read extraordinary stories of winged cities, dragons, fairies, and other fantastic creatures of myth and magic.

Rojuun, a novel by John H. Carroll
Book 1 of The Willden Trilogy. Rumors are spreading about a new race called Rojuun. They appeared from the depths of the mountains eight hundred years ago with the intention of taking over the world. Tathan of the Shadows has been charged with learning more about them. However, he must learn more about his very unusual companions before he can succeed.

Song of the Fairy Queen, a novel by Valerie Douglas
It's said of Fairy that if you're in dire need and call their name they'll come. With his castle under siege and his young son in his arms, High King Oryan couldn't be in more dire need. With only Morgan, his High Marshal, and a handful of Morgan's men at his back, he has only one direction left to run...up. And only one ally to whom he can turn: Kyriay, the Queen of the Fairy.

The First Dragoneer, a novella by M. R. Mathias
When two young men go on a hunt that they know will be the last hunt of their youth, they decide they want it to be an unforgettable outing. When they cross a ridge leaving the protection of their kingdom behind, they find a cavern that looks like it needs to be explored. In the cavern they find exactly what they were looking for. In this stony hole lives something they will never forget!
Also, Foxwise, a short story by M. R. Mathias
Deep in the Lurr Forest there is a valley called Saint Elm's Deep. This secret valley stays in a perpetual state of Spring and hosts the thousands of Fae who live there. The Heart Tree's magic sustains the boundaries that protect them all and their lush forest, but the hoar witch has poisoned its roots. This a short story from M. R. Mathias' #1 bestselling series, The Legend of Vanx Malic.

Fireblood, a novel by M. A. Nilles
Magic is everything to a priest or priestess, inherited by the descendants of the Creators. Over time, Ayali's abilities have weakened, threatening to expose her tribe to the power of the darkness befalling their lands. Beneath the pressures of her family and tribe, Ayali turns down a dark path. She must face the shadows within her before it consumes their world and destroys her life.

Nature Abhors a Vacuum, a novel by Stephen L. Nowland
Aiden Wainwright was the son of a wagon maker in a small country town where nothing interesting ever happened, until a chance encounter with a strange relic changed him forever. His resourcefulness and courage are put to the test when he travels to a nearby town and finds the place on the brink of disaster. Aiden must marshal his limited resources to aid the town and uncover the villains.

Soul Bonds, a novel by E.M. Sinclair
A young slave girl flees from the Lord who owns her, choosing to die in the mountains rather than become one of his 'pretties'. When that death seems all too likely, she is found by one of the Dragon Kindred and Tika's life takes a twist she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams - or her worst nightmares.

I hope I haven't missed something (always a possibility with me), but where can I find this anthology, John? I couldn't find a mention in the post.


EDIT: Found it at Smashwords (should have looked there first).

I suppose links would have helped. They are added to the original post now. Thank you, cromag.

I plan to publish it to Amazon soon. I'll add the link as soon as I do.

It showed as being a pre-order (for Sept. 5th 2014) when I clicked on it a bit ago and it's now Sept. 6th and no sign of it showing up as yet. Is Kobo located somewhere west of the US Midwest?

Hi crich70.

I'm afraid the files might not have gotten to them quick enough. It will be there in a few days though.

Ah ok. Makes sense. Life is full of situations where things don't go quite as planned.

I don't know what the deal is, but Kobo is taking much, much longer than usual to get things from Smashwords.

Itunes and B&N (and Smashwords itself, obviously) don't seem to be having any problems.

It is puzzling. I wonder if somehow the available date got messed up or something.

I truly apologize for this. I rushed and put too short of a timeline on this pre-order and I don't think Kobo was able to process it in that time. Kobo is an excellent company that is expanding internationally at a phenomenal rate, but perhaps they're still struggling to take the extra steps to reach the efficiency of the other online stores. I've taken steps to try to get it there soon.

Once again, I apologize for the delay.

I don't blame you for an accident John. I've never pre-ordered from them before so I don't know much about how often they do/don't have such problems.
