The Guild of the Cowry Catchers, Book 5: Shores Beyond the World illustrated ebook is here!
Chaos is sweeping the islands of Wefrivain—slave revolts, attacks on temples, and questions about the true nature of the wyvern gods. The catalyst is a single book called The Guild of the Cowry Catchers. The authors are a band of pirates.
Gerard and his friends are not content to merely spread unrest. They’re determined to free the fauns of Maijha Minor, who are scheduled to be sold or slaughtered. This is a situation that Gerard, Silveo, and Gwain created, and they want to make it right.
However, things are not as they seem on the deadly island game park. Priestess Morchella is pulling strings, and the fauns may want their own brand of revenge. Gerard lost everything last time he stepped onto Maijha Minor. If he’s not careful, the same could happen again.
This 70,000-word novel is DRM-free and carefully formatted. It includes 13 character portraits, 16 full-page illustrations by Sarah Cloutier, and 2 versions of the map.
The book is $4.99 from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, or Smashwords.
If you want it soon from anywhere other than Amazon, you should snap it up. I'm planning to do a Kindle Select campaign for the entire series, beginning in about two weeks. This will involve pulling books 2-5 off all other sites for 3-6 months. The books will be back on other sights by the time the podcast for Book 5 launches. They're not DRMed, so you could buy them on Amazon and convert them to other formats.
The Kindle select campaign will also involve offering some or all of the books for free for a few days. I haven't decided which ones I'll offer. If you want a heads-up on the free days, sign up for my mailing list. I'm also planning to start offering some other perks to people on the mailing list. If you're interested in reading cut-scenes or getting the occational freebie, sign up.
If you read my New Year's blog post, you know that one of my goals this year is to have something new for sale each month. "Sky Dance" was my offering for January. Shores Beyond the World is my offering for February. A novelette about Lu will probably be my offering for March.
Thank you for supporting my work!
