Sale on All Books Will END WEDNESDAY

Both Volumes 1 and 4 have been free for a long time now, and Volumes 2 and 3 have been discounted during that time as well.  However, I believe it’s time to announce that the sale will be officially ending on Wednesday the 25th.

Thus, now is your LAST CHANCE to download Volume 4 for free.  Volume 4, due to it’s length, will cost $2.99, and Volumes 2 and 3 will go back to being $2.00.  Volume 1, as always, will remain free.

Right now, the series, as a whole, costs $1.98 (0+$0.99+$0.99+0).  You cannot ask for a better deal.

My eBooks are available at barnesandnoble.com as Nook Books, on iBooks, Kobo, and here at Smashwords.com.

The Golden Lands has gotten some great reviews so far.  Why not find out for yourself why people are talking?


For those of you that aren’t familiar with the story, here’s a plot summary for The Golden Lands, Volume 1: Shadows in the Sunlight:

The Golden Lands, one of the three worlds of Terra, is supposed to be a place of peace, light, and happiness. But the Golden Lands hasn’t exactly been such a place for John Hedekira, a jaded, hot-headed teenager. His parents disappear when he is thirteen, and he’s left to look after his younger sister and brother. One evening, John decides that he has had it with the distant, self-pitiful dispositions of his siblings, and resolves to shut them out of his life for good…or so he thinks.

That same evening, a band of warriors of a dark race invade his home, kidnapping John’s siblings…and leaving him to bleed out on the floor of his own house. But John is not undone so easily. Compelled by his own hatred of the warriors that left him to die, and a sense of duty towards his siblings, John sets out on a quest for vengeance. Joining him is Faith Pinck, a caring, innocent girl who doesn’t yet understand the true motives behind John’s desire to track the evil band of warriors.
And in the midst of their adventures as they journey to rescue John’s siblings, they begin to uncover a deeper, darker plot that will endeavor to collide the world of humanity with the world of an unholy, malicious, supernatural being.

Find out How it All Begins: The Prologue for The Golden Lands

“He” has always existed.

Or at least that’s what the stories say.  I’ve never found “him” in all my childhood years.  I’m not so sure if I believe in “him” anymore.

In a small house near the edge of a wood, looking out into a grassy plain, lives a humble family; me, my sister, and my brother, both of which are younger than me.  I love them; I just don’t know them.  We have never been close, not because we don’t get along, but because we are often separated.  For years, ever since our parents disappeared, I have spent my time scouring the woods every day, searching for food, gathering firewood, doing everything I can to keep them alive.  I don’t know them, and they don’t know me, but I care for them.

Sometimes, I feel like they don’t know that they’re dying, that without the meager care I give them, things would grow worse.  It’s hard to imagine worse.  With only me to provide for them, I don’t know how else they would survive.

But “he” has always existed.  My parents used to tell me of “him”.  They said “he” was a great warrior—a wielder of strange, mystical powers.  His sword flashed quicker than lightning, they told me, and his strength was mightier than a giant’s, and his endurance could not be matched.  And they said that, in difficult times, “he” would keep me going.  “He” would help me fight through my trials.  “He” aided all.  “He” was a lender of inner, mystical strength.

That’s what my parents said.  That was before they disappeared.  I wish I knew more about who “he” was.  But I don’t.  As the days go by, I want to travel the large, beautiful forests and the wide, windy plains, and look for “him”.  I could use “his” help.  But I can’t—I can’t go in search of “him”.  My brother and sister wouldn’t be able to survive on their own.

My parents always said that there was Evil in these lands.  It came from afar, not from the Golden Lands, but elsewhere.  They said that it would find us; all of us.  We had to be careful, they would say—there was evil in all of us.

Maybe that’s why I’ve never seen “him”.   Maybe I can’t see “him” because of the Evil.  Or maybe not seeing “him” is the Evil.

But then it came.  Like my parents said, Evil would find us.  It only seeks to grow, they said.  The evil inside of us, it beckons to more evil.  If we do not defeat the evil inside us, then we might as well let Evil walk right through our door.  If we do not cast out darkness, then it will only grow inside of us.  And once it does that, it will consume those around us.

The day I forgot this advice will be the day I will never forget.

In case you missed it, the fourth book of my series, The Golden Lands will be coming out tomorrow!  As usual, I plan on making Volume 4 free for a little while, just like I did with Volumes 1-3 when they first debuted.  However, this is just a note to tell you that Volumes 2 and 3 will NOT be free on the occasion of Volume 4 being released.

Let me explain:

In the past, as some of you may know, whenever I released a new volume, I made every other existing volume free.  In other words, whenever a new volume got published, I had the biggest super-sale ever on the whole series.  Now, however, I plan to veer away from that.  Volume 1 will remain free (because it always is) and Volume 4 will be free (because that’s how I roll) but Volumes 2 and 3 will receive only a discount.

Thus, Volumes 2 and 3, for a limited time only, will cost 99 cents as an eBook, instead of the usual $2.00.

I’ll admit it: sometimes I wonder how loyal my followers really are.  How much do you actually care about The Golden Lands?  Anyone can start following me and then realize that whenever I release a new volume, every book in the series is free.  Anyone could time when they download my books so that they come away with every story without paying a cent.   Now I’m interested to see who really thinks TGL is worth a little bit of their money—198 cents, to be exact (99 cents X 2).  If you enjoyed Volume 1, will you be willing to pay just a little bit of money for Volumes 2 and 3, and then grab Volume 4 while it’s free?

Your move.  I am trusting that many of my closest followers will not disappoint.

Sorry for the heavy post XD

Haha…


Stay awesome, my dear followers,

Dom
