Hi sci-fi/fantasy-fiction fans! I’m pleased as punch to announce my latest tale from the world of Lore — a short-story ebook called Kid of Lore. Based in part on real events, it’s a misadventure set in 1970s New England that launches an unsuspecting eleven-year-old into an embattled universe beyond his wildest dreams.
And here’s the best part. You can get it for FREE right now (in your favorite format) from Smashwords.com…
Hope you enjoy it! Here’s a synopsis:
Johnny’s your typical tween-age insomniac who’s never slept a wink in his life. But when a kids’ prank turns into an epic fail, the nightmare really begins. It’s literally all downhill from there, as Johnny Cap falls for a shadowy girl and into the clutches of someone stranger. Meanwhile, his world slips under a spell of lore. And evil looms. No kidding…
Kid of Lore is for kids of all ages. Short and sweet. Epic. Spooky. Fun.
It’s also a prequel to Lore of the Underlings, an epic poetry series from the mythical lands of Lore. Lore of the Underlings is a bittersweet saga of gold and shadow told in classic style — with old-world words but new-world wit. Fun for fans of puns and lyrical tongues!
