Tales from the Green series - YA Fantasy

It's been two years since I completed my first novel, The Magic Flute, and as I mentioned previously it was due for an overhaul. Today I'm here to announce the 2nd ediition of the first entry into the ongoing Tales from the Green series, and to celebrate I'm doing a free giveaway at Smashwords from now until May 1st. Just go here and use coupon code UJ26V for your free download. While you're there be sure to check out my other books and don't forget to leave a review for good or ill.


Amazon Customers - I'm also working with Amazon customer service to allow those who have already purchased this book to receive the updated version if they so choose. Emails should be going out sometime in the near future though I wasn't given an ETA.

Other Online Retailers - Just a note to anyone who uses Barnes and Noble, Apple Store, Kobo, etc. Since I publish through Smashwords it will be several weeks before these stores receive the updated version. I recommend going straight to Smashwords (again, UJ26V for a free download) or Amazon if you want the 2nd edition. If you've already read the original version rest assured that the overall plot is unchanged and won't effect anything that happens in later sequels; the new edition just revises how it is told in some places (especially around the ending) while eliminating old typos and formatting errors. Think of this as the George Lucas edit with all the great special effects that should have been in the original but weren't

Tales from the Green Book One: The Magic Flute


DRM-Free version and other formats available at Smashwords

For a young boy named Alex Samuels, suburban life is a meaningless waste of time. Wake up, go to school, get kicked off the baseball team, beat the latest videogame, repeat as necessary. As he nears his thirteenth birthday his apathy knows no bounds. Things had been different when he had been a child, though. Back then he had believed in magic.

Fueled by his grandpa's fairy tales of his own supposed adventures in a magical world known as the Green, Alex had once believed he too could be a hero. That is until well-meaning parents had quashed his dreams with a harsh dose of reality. He long ago gave up on believing in fairy tales; too bad they never gave up on him! When his grandpa gave him the old wooden flute for his birthday it became one more piece of junk in his closet. That is, until, real life monsters from out of the old stories come to visit. Now, swept away by the magical song of the flute Alex finds himself in the Green, a wild land in which humans are a myth long forgotten. Join him as he rediscovers friendship, heroism, and the magic of his childhood that was once lost.


Tales from the Green Book Two: The Wizard's Tome


DRM-free version and other formats available at Smashwords

The Tales from the Green saga continues! Though he struggled for weeks to find a way back to Earth, Alex finds himself returning to the Green to help his new found friends face the evil of the dragon Ssvalith. Even as he and the elf princess Kira embark on a quest in search of answers that will aid them in their fight the forces of the dragon begin to stir. Rampaging trolls answer the call of dark sorcery. The proud dwarves march against their former allies, the elves of the Mists. Wyrms skulk in the shadows.

To unravel prophecy and restore order to the Green, Alex will have to make new allies, endure new hardships, and face foes thought long vanquished. His grandpa's old stories won't be enough this time in guiding him toward his goal. The answers he needs may yet lie in the Tome of Kezerik.


Tales from the Green Book Three: Spider's Web


DRM-Free version and other formats available at Smashwords

The adventures continue in the largest tale yet! At last accepting his role as the bearer of the Sword of Oaks, the boy hero Alex Samuels has come far during his time in the Green. Will his growing powers be enough, though, when enemies abound...even among his so-called allies? As friends abandon his side and foes plot his destruction, all will find themselves drawn into the Spider's Web...

Final bump of this post just in case any missed it. Just a few days left to get your free download from Smashwords. Thanks again to everyone who has already downloaded a copy. It's much more satisfying to write new material when you know people are reading your books

It took a few months but my first customer review is on Smashwords regarding The Wizard's Tome

Quote:
Very enjoyable. I am planning on getting the first book, and am looking forward to the release of the next one.
Also, just taking this opportunity to let everyone know that I am keeping my prices at 99 cents in spite of Amazon's new 70% royalty for books priced $2.99 and up.

Tales from the Green 4th of July Special - Choose Your Price-

Edit: This deal has ended, with many thanks to those who participated. The Smashwords edition is now back to the normal price of 99 whopping cents!

From now until Monday on Smashwords, buyers can choose their price on books 1 and 2 in the Tales from the Green series! And yes, that does mean you can choose "free" as your price, though free customers owe me a review

I bought both of these and read them -- they were quite engaging and I will be looking for the sequel.

Much appreciated. If you have the time to leave a short review (or even to copy/paste what you just wrote) at whichever site you got the book from it'd really help me out. That one review I have so far is lonely

Will do. I'm trying to get in the habit of doing that because I know it's important for the author but I'm not hitting 100% yet by any means.
