BBT_TourBanner_FromTheAshesOfRuin

 

Goddess Fish Promotions is sponsoring a blog tour for my series, From the Ashes of Ruin. The tour began on February 1st, and will last until February 19th. We are currently in the 3rd and final week of the tour. It is primarily a Blurb Blitz Tour, meaning that every stop will have a blurb and excerpt from one of the books. The Blog Schedule is listed below. The books in the series so far include: Drasmyr (The Prequel), The Children of Lubrochius (Bk.I), and The Sceptre of Morgulan (Bk.II). As of this moment, Drasmyr is free and the other two books are reasonably priced at $2.99. Also, make sure you check out the sponsor of the whole tour–Goddess Fish Promotions–it wouldn’t have been possible without them.

Finally, I will be awarding one randomly chosen commenter on the tour (for those who comment on the tour sites—NOT atoasttodragons and NOT my web-site) a $15 Amazon Gift Card.

Announcement: Upcoming Blurb Blitz Virtual Tour for “From the Ashes of Ruin”

As of November 2015, I released my latest novel, The Sceptre of Morgulan, for general consumption. It is the second book in my series, From the Ashes of Ruin. In honor of the release, I am doing a Blurb Blitz Virtual Tour for the entire series so far, including the prequel. There will be excerpts and blurbs from each book. That’s right; you’ll get tantalizing excerpts not only from The Sceptre of Morgulan but also from The Children of Lubrochius and Drasmyr. Once again, Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing and handling the tour (They do a great job). The tour will run three weeks from Monday, February 1st through Friday, February 19th (M-F only, I believe). We will post a schedule when more information becomes available. Also, note that an Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to a randomly selected commenter on the tour (Note: comments on matthewdryan.com do NOT count, NOR do comments on my blog).

 

Hope to see you on the tour.

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.

The Cover Reveal: The Sceptre of Morgulan

Here it is. The long awaited Cover Reveal from my latest novel, The Sceptre of Morgulan. It is the second book in my series From the Ashes of Ruin. It was preceded by Bk. I: The Children of Lubrochius, and the prequel: Drasmyr. Now, here is the cover (designed by Digital Donna):

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.”
