Corvids Press: Specials & Releases

Talents Universe
I'm no good at blurbs or marketing. So no hard sell here.
People on this forum have been helpful, so we are offering the first book in the series of seven at 75% discount, only US 99c.

It's not really an Alien First Contact Story, book #3 in the series is really the First Contact story.

The Apprentice's Talent.
Discount Coupon code is RL28T for Smashwords only.

At Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble all the books are at the full price of US $3.99

The Kindle version on Smashwords is "Dual Mobi", you get plainer version on ancient Kindles but from Kindle Keyboard current Firmware you can select Publisher and you see the AZW3/KF8 version that Amazon would supply to newer Kindles.
The epub is epub2. On some readers you might have to put it into a specific folder/directory. The epub version is recommended for Calibre conversion.
If you really want PDF, best to convert the epub version yourself.

The first two books and the fifth are Maisie's career. There is no over-arching plot like the Wheel of Time, but characters and situations develop. Book #3 "The Solar Alliance" (not people selling PV solar panels) is parallel to book #1 and #2 and needs to be read before #5, the third Maisie book, "The Master's Talent". The Starship Chief is an adventure twenty five years before "First Contact" with Earth. There are only seven books in the series. I'm doing an almost final proof on "The Mission's Talent" right now, perhaps it will be released in 2021, if ready and polished. It certainly reads like the last book in a series.
Spoiler:
Spoiler: No-one you'd grow attached to in the earlier books dies in "The Mission's Talent".


There is no DRM. You can read on any device and share with immediate Family. You may not upload copies.
We recommend download, backups and Calibre, though Smashwords do have a Cloud library and let you download the version you bought any number of times and also give you free access to any later revisions.

It's not set in the past; the timeline in our world is sort of contemporary, though starting in 1962, jumping to 1975 and finally roughly contemporarily with when it was written. The published books in the series were started in the 1990s.

Under the Stone of Destiny.

The first three books are a sort of trilogy named after three of the four treasures of the Tuath Dé. There is no over-arching plot like the Wheel of Time, but some books do connect closely. The first three cover Eilis's coming of age, though not an adult. Alice is Eilis in English, which can be pronounced Ailish, pronunciation varies in Ireland with region. Some are parallel stories focusing on other characters.

In the oldest legends, Manannán Mac Lir leads the Tuath Dé away to an Otherworld via the mounds. The Irish word Sidhe or sí, or Scottish Sìde or sith (all pronounced roughly Shee) literally means mounds. The stories are about what the Sidhe, Elves, Faerie, Norse Demigods and Tuath Dé are doing today! Obviously some of the same characters mentioned in legends from Oral Traditions that might date from the Bronze Age in Ireland are still alive. It's not a spoiler to say that the Tuath Dé are mistaken about the nature of the Sidhe, Dwarves, Elves and Dryads.

The Tuath Dé (Tribe of God) were later renamed Tuatha Dé Danann (The tribe of God(ess) Danu) by monks, because the Israelites were the Tribe of God. Danu is Celtic, but not Irish. Her river is the Danube. Before the Romans invaded Gaul (their name for a collection of Celtic Tribes), the Celtic Culture and tribes stretched as far as Turkey. Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Brittany and part of the North Coast of Spain is where Celtic culture and sometimes Celts survived.
Lir is a different Lir to the King in "The Children of Lir".

Note the pillar at Tara, Co. Meath, Ireland isn't the Stone of Destiny as it was a low dished seat. It was sent to Scotland. But the Stone of Scone is a fake copy given to the English. Oddly the current one loaned from Westminster to Edinburgh might be a copy of that stone. Even the one loaned by the King in Ulster for the King in Scotland to sit on for his coronation, or recognition as Rí. However the stories are not about the Treasures.

Also Morrígan and Morrígni are titles, not names, Terror Queen and Terror Queens. The modern Irish has Banríon as Queen, rígan is old Irish, also in modern Irish "mór" means Great or Big. Here it's an older word. Irish words often have an unrelated meaning accented or not.

Corvids Press Sale end Dec 2020 on Smashwords

All reduced from $3.99 to 99 cents till Midnight 31st December 2020, so only a few days left!
Still full price on Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Google PlayBooks, Barnes & Noble and others.
All are complete stories though the characters develop in the series and some books have some sort of overall background story arc.

All titles by Ray McCarthy, an Irish Writer.

The Smashwords Kindle Version is Dual Mobi, all later Kindles get the KF8 format giving better appearance and also option for the Publisher Fonts.
The epub is suitable for all epub based eink readers and all epub Apps on the Fire, Apple, Android, Windows and Linux platforms. Aldiko for older Android or Lithium for newer versions. It's better to use a 3rd party epub App on iOS than Apple Books unless you buy the titles from the Apple Store.

The Apprentice's Talent
Series: Talents Universe, Book 1. This series has seven books. The last title is having final revisions.

No idea when we might run a sale again.
