Indie Focus: Spotlight On Faithless By Graham Austin-King


IS THIS THE EVENTUAL WINNER OF #SPFBO 2017?

YOUR INTRODUCTION TO A POTENTIAL WINNER OF THIS YEAR’S SPFBO COMPETITION

 

It’s been approximately two months since this year’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off commenced, and it’s time to shine the spotlight on one of the early favourites to win the contest.

If the early reaction to the novel is any indication I suspect it will end up on many more readers’ TBR lists in the coming weeks and months.

A CONTENDER FOR #SPFBO 2017

YOUR INTRODUCTION TO AN INTRIGUING NOVEL WITH A GREAT PREMISE AND EVEN BETTER FRONT COVER

The novel in question is The Heart Of Stone by British born independent author, Ben Galley. As someone who generally isn’t drawn to a book by its front cover, I have to say that the art work for Ben’s novel is certainly attention grabbing. I’m sure it has persuaded many a reader to add it to their TBR list.

It probably would; as would the plight of refugees; as would hardships brought about by environmental issues. In this respect, The Lost Sentinel (book 1 of a new fantasy trilogy) by Suzanne Rogerson, is a very topical novel given that theses themes very apparently served as inspiration for the story, and are central to its plot.

YOUR INTRODUCTION TO BOOK ONE OF A BRAND NEW SELF-PUBLISHED FANTASY TRILOGY FROM AN UP-AND-COMING INDIE AUTHOR

 

Greetings readers. The end of this week will see the publication of The Lost Sentinel, book one of the Silent Sea Chronicles, the second novel by indie author, Suzanne Rogerson. When Suzanne issued her call for book bloggers to help with the promotion of her latest release, I jumped at the chance; the opportunity coincided with my recent desire to feature more self-published books and authors, plus the premise of her story reminded me of the Glenda Larke novel, The Last Stormlord.
