I’m happy to announce my latest novel is now available on Lulu (epub) and IBookstore (Apple) as of this morning in Ebook form. Publication on Amazon and B&N along with others is coming as I write this.
Back cover synopsis:
Long before becoming a heroic legend with his destruction of Grendel, Beowulf is a young leader on the rise. Impulsive and eager to prove his noble nature, an inexperienced Beowulf receives an offer to rid the lands of the feared Dreygurs. Like any restless warrior of seventeen, the Geat champion quickly accepts. While Beowulf and his thegns travel through ravaged lands where myths and magic are real, they discover the tension between old pagan ways and a new found religion. In his quest to destroy the deadly monsters of Bernicia, the future hero learns pride and foolish bravado can be as lethal as the magical terrors they face. As he and his group suffer setbacks and inner turmoil, self-doubt begins to cloud the mind of Beowulf. The undead beasts, controlled by a malevolent sorceress and her underworld allies, could put an end to his destiny of becoming the world’s greatest Monster Slayer.
I hope you enjoy this story as it is my first young adult novel. I tried to instill the flavor of the great epic poem I remembered from middle school by wondering how a 17 year old Beowulf learned to become a hero. Beyond that, I decided to capture the 6th century world as the Geats, Angles, and Brythonian people believed it to be. This means monsters, magic and demons exist for heroes to vanquish.
