R.A. Scully's Silvinesh Series - Free until July 31st on Smashwords [post #13]

Hey all, new fantasy scif-fi author here, from Canada, ehh!


The first of my Series, The High Wizard of Silvinesh, is currently available wordwide, available in Hardcover, Trade Paperback and most recently on Smashwords in all ebook formats. Check out a sample today, let me know what you think. Also, please visit my website http://www.highwizardofsilvinesh.com and check out my blog and current contest.

Recently released in Trade Paperback is the second of my series, Cold Winter's Magic. I will soon have it on Smashwords, possibly this weekend, darn day job always getting in the way of my passion

I plan to release the final book in my planned trilogy early next year. It will conclude this first storyline, but there will definately be more to come, possibly with the Children of Silvinesh, set many years later.

I also want to create a modern day sci-fi fantasy, no vamps! I'm thinking of doing something related to the 2012 alignment with magic and science clashing, you'll see

Again, please let me know what you think, it is the readers and their feedback that makes this all worthwhile. I am heading up to the Ottawa Can Con on Aug 20-22, can't wait! I'm scheduled to do a reading and am literally on top of the world, wish me luck

Dear Member:

Sorry for any confusion, but we need about a 300 x 300 pixel size.

By the way, is the woman in the picture a supernatural being?

She is a White Wizard named Alentia Silverblade. She is the main character in my Silvinesh Series, have a look, book 1 can be sampled on Smashwords or off Amazon for those interested.

I'll fix the photos and get them down to the 300 dpi range, sorry about that I'm bad!

One further suggestion: Put a space between the two, so they don't squish together. It'll look better that way.

Voila! Space added between covers.

Noticed a few more sales of The High Wizard of Silvinesh and one for Cold Winter's Magic today. I definately suggest reading the first, to get a feel for my magical world and the beloved charaters found within. It will make Cold Winter's Magic that much clearer, many of the secrets from High Wizard are revealed and the shadowy past I have hinted at, comes to life in book 2.

I hope all those who read my work, truly enjoy the story and fall in love with the people and places I have created. One young YA recently told me she cried at the end of Cold Winter's Magic, I think she really related with Alentia and the pain she suffers through, best feedback I've ever had and meant the most to touch someone on that kind of personal level. I think this is the best reward an author can ever have, the money means nothing, reaching people, deep down in their very hearts and their souls, means so much more.

All the best everyone, take care.

Free until July 31st on Smashwords

With so many positives going on for me right now, I decided to simply offer my first novel to everyone, as a gift, through Smashwords. The High Wizard of Silvinesh can be downloaded in multiple formats for free, from now until the end of July using Coupon Code XB99Z http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/19033

For those who love high fantasy and want to start a new series, your search ends here. Book two, Cold Winter's Magic, will be available by month's end as an E-book. The third and final addition to my Silvinesh Series, Shimmer of Silver Sorcery, will be released, spring 2011.

Thank you again to all the people who have already purchased a copy and for the Fantasy Book Club who picked my novel for their August Book Review.

I also want to thank Can Con in Ottawa for having me as one of their Guest Authors, great!
