Do you love stories? Books, movies, TV shows, video games; stories in whatever medium are incredible. They give us a chance to escape to a new world, see things from new perspectives, and just enjoy ourselves for a while.
What if you could get stories delivered to your email for free? Not just any stories, but exciting tales of adventure and suspense filled with engaging characters and set in far away worlds.
If that sounds great to you, I’ve got good news! I’m launching two brand new serials soon and the first one will go live tomorrow! These serials will be available here on CrossFireFiction.WordPress.com but they will go out to everyone on my email list a full week early.
The one that will begin tomorrow is “The Howling Wood.” It’s the first serial in the fantasy series, The Samokei Chronicles. You can already read “Everyday,” the first story in this collection, on my website. “The Howling Wood” picks up the story decades later and reveals more about the mysterious myths and legends of Samokei. You’ll follow Thom, a member of an order of woodsmen and trackers known as the Vilka, as he tries to lead a most unusual party safely through the Howling Wood. They’re stalked by a pack of deadly wolves but the greatest danger is something none of them could have ever imagined.
If you want to be the first to read Thom’s story, click here to sign up now!
The next serial will launch on July 6 and it’s set in the same world as my latest novel, The Other Side of Hope. It’s an alternate history in which the global roles of Christianity and Islam have been flipped. If you’re wondering how that could have happened, this serial is for you! It’s set in the months leading up to the Battle of Tours – the day when Charles Martel halted the Muslim advance into Europe. But this time, history won’t unfold the way you remember it. Each month, you’ll get a new chapter in the story of Adrian Bernard, loyal bodyguard of Odo the Great. Odo was the Duke of Aquitaine, a kingdom in modern day southern France, – and long time rival of Charles Martel.
When you sign up, you’ll get to choose which serial you want to receive (both is always an option!). You’ll get one chapter per month from each story. You can always find the serials here on my website as well, but you’ll have to wait an extra week. Trust me, you’re going to want to know what happens next as soon as possible!
