I actually did it. I finished tinkering with a book. You are now able to purchase it here on Amazon or here on Smashwords, or here on Google Play. I am currently trying out the world of online self-publishing, and we will see where it takes me. Please buy it if you are curious and let me know what you think, good or bad!
Each of the sites it is available on have limited previews available, so
you can check it out there. I'll be building it a Facebook page this
week, and the page here on the blog for the book will have more stuff
added as time goes on. I'm still waiting for Goodreads to hook up my
author account, but I've made sure the book is up there as well in case
people want to review it on that site.
Comrades We is the adventures of six friends as they grow up, encounter bad stuff, and try to fight their way out.
This is a fantasy novel. There is magic. There are swords. There are mysterious and cryptic gods. There are some really bad guys and there are good guys who are mostly ordinary and trying to do their best. There is knitting and spinning when characters are not practicing swordplay and archery. And if needed, there always tea. There is also more to come, as Comrades We is the first in a trilogy (cue me panicking and realizing that I need to finish writing the middle of the second bit).
Content warning: Some violence and mention of sexual assault. Made-up swear words. Best suited for teenagers and up, probably not for anyone under 12 (unless you happen to be super-mature and have parents who let you read absolutely anything no matter what).
