Goddess Fish Promotions will be sponsoring a blog tour for my series, From the Ashes of Ruin, during the first half of February. The tour will begin on February 1st and will last until February 19th. It will be primarily a Blurb Blitz Tour, meaning that every stop will have a blurb and excerpt from one of the books. The Blog Schedule will be listed shortly. There’s still a lot of open slots, so if you are interested, please contact Goddess Fish Promotions. The books in the series so far include: Drasmyr (The Prequel), The Children of Lubrochius (Bk.I), and The Sceptre of Morgulan (Bk.II). Also, make sure you check out the sponsor of the whole tour–Goddess Fish Promotions–it wouldn’t have been possible without them.

Announcement: An Upcoming Redesigned Cover Reveal

I’ve been wanting to update the cover of my first novel, Drasmyr, for quite some time. I finally got around to it just a few weeks ago. I’ve been holding back on revealing it for a number of reasons. The main one was that I was quite busy and needed to launch my novel The Sceptre of Morgulan. Now, however, things have calmed down a bit and I can get back to my new cover for Drasmyr. So, with that in mind, I would like to announce that I will reveal the redesigned cover for Drasmyr on this site only on December 14th, 2015.

 

So, stay tuned. I really like the new pic. It’s not a complete abandonment of the original cover, but I believe it is an improvement. The reveal will include a twitter campaign at the same time—one of my own and one of Goddess Fish Promotions.

Before I forget …

Announcement:

I almost forgot to announce the winners for my comment contest and host contest for my Cover Reveal of “The Sceptre of Morgulan” on October 13th.

Congratulations to both our winners. And thanks to everyone for participating.

Notice: I’m Looking for Book Reviewers

Hi All,

This is an open request to any fantasy fans out there. I have previously published two novels: “Drasmyr” and “The Children of Lubrochius.” “Drasmyr” is the prequel to my series “From the Ashes of Ruin,” and “The Children of Lubrochius” is Book I in that same series. I’ve completed the final draft of Book II “The Sceptre of Morgulan” and I’m looking for reviewers. If you have read the prequel and Book I, great, I’m hoping you will consider reading Book II and reviewing it for me in exchange for a free PDF copy (ebook only). If you have not read any of my books, I’d like to recruit you to review all three: “Drasmyr,” “The Children of Lubrochius,” and “The Sceptre of Morgulan.” I know that’s a lot of books and they are all 100k+ words in length, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the series and it will be worth your while. The deal will be the same as above: free ebooks (all 3) in exchange for an honest review of each (although “Drasmyr” is free for everyone). If you start reading the series and decide you don’t wish to continue, let me know and I will drop your name from my list of reviewers. No hard feelings.

Just for your information, although a vampire has a major role in this series it is not a romantic role. The vampire in this series is evil; he’s kind of my sinister alter-ego. It is nothing like “Twilight.” The series as a whole could best be described as a cross between “Dracula” and “The Lord of the Rings,” or perhaps an AD&D style story. Additionally, you should be informed that I am planning two more books for this series, so that in the end it’ll be a four book series with a prequel, or five books in all.

I would ask that all reviewers post a review on Amazon and on Smashwords. Especially Smashwords.

If you are interested, send me a DM on Twitter: @MatthewDRyan1. Then we can exchange e-mails and go from there.

Thanks in advance.

Matthew D. Ryan
Author of “Drasmyr,” “The Children of Lubrochius,” and “The Sceptre of Morgulan.”
