Celebrate the Small Things, and early release for Dragonfold and Other Adventures!

Thanks to Viklit, we have this opportunity to give thanks for the small things, like folded laundry and sunshine! Sometimes we get to celebrate some big things too.

This week I'm celebrating these small things:

1. Summer. It's here.

2. Sunshine.

3. Swimming, biking, walking.

4. A super sweet, amazing review of Champion in the Darkness by Miss Jack Lewis Baillot at However Improbable. Thank you, Miss Jack!

5. Stephen Tremp named me author of the week at his blog! Wow! Thanks Stephen!


6. An Early Release of Dragonfold and Other Adventures on Monday! (There's more to this story than just excitement, and I'll be sharing that part in my IWSG post next week.)

Azami has a gift with origami. Will she master it in time to save herself from bondage? Find out in "Dragonfold."
Joanne lost more than her honor in the war, she lost her will to live. When bandits attack her homestead, will she stand or fall in "Enough to Do?"
And just who is Captain Wrath under that itchy, false wig? Find out more in “The Identity of Captain Wrath.”
DRAGONFOLD AND OTHER ADVENTURES includes imaginative stories and poems, written between 2008 and 2013. Some of these adventures have been previously published, and others are waiting to be discovered for the first time.
Previously published titles include: “Dragonfold”; “Enough to Do”; “The Identity of Captain Wrath”; and “Embers.” This book also contains a sample of Martinson’s novel, Champion in the Darkness.

Find these previously published stories and more adventures in Dragonfold and Other Adventures, a collection of new and old stories and poems with fantasy and scifi elements.
Available at Amazon in paperback and for kindle. I'll get to working on Smashwords and B&N next.

What are you celebrating today?

Would you be kind enough to give a shout out for Dragonfold sometime in the next few weeks or months?

And there's a giveaway too!

That's a lot to celebrate! I can't wait until summer arrives here, at the minute it's just raining constantly!

Allison - it's not all Captain Wrath - just a few of his short moments, but he's in there, and I'm still working with him from time to time. (if a writer can say that they are working "with" a fictional character)

Mina - Thank you!

VikLit said...

SUMMER ! I am happy about that too!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I love the title of your new book. It reminds me of Anne McCaffrey's dragon books.

Julie Flanders said...

I will definitely give the book a shout-out! Sounds awesome and I simply love that cover.

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Al Diaz said...

Summer is my favorite season. I must say this is one of my favorite covers too. Really great. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Viklit - Summer is wonderful!

Diane - Thanks! It's actually an origami inspired title, but that's cool if it reminds you of McCaffrey's books. She was a grand master of scifi fantasy.

Julie - Thank you!!!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Al - it's my favorite season too! :)
And Thank you!!! I actually created it with Createspace's cover designer and a picture I purchased for commercial use.

I wish I could create art like that, but I've never given myself the time . . . it takes me a long, long time to even sketch something more complicated than a stick figure.

Samantha May said...

How awesome! I will definitely give you a shout out on Monday. Glad you've had a good week :)

Milo James Fowler said...

Entered! Good reviews from strangers are the best, but I'll take 'em from just about anybody. Way to go!
