One might think that I would be all over the release of Oathbreaker’s first book on my website, just plugging this book like there’s no tomorrow.
And indeed, I have been plugging. Just not here. And also like there are many tomorrows. That is to say, I have been focusing on other things, rather than promoting this book (I am looking at you, Arkham City) (I am also looking at you, day job), and I need to say this:
I am proud of this baby. I am extraordinarily proud of this baby. (that last sentence is a link, by the way, to the place where my book awaits your approving gaze – just read the reviews! [at least, the 4 and 5 star reviews, which is all it has right now])
If you don’t believe me, here’s another review, from fellow author Rob Steiner:
- I dare any fantasy fan to stop reading at this point. I mean, the whole book is like this. And don’t worry, McComb’s prose serves the story, and not the other way around like so many first-time authors. Not a word is wasted.
- The dialogue is unique to each character – you’d know who was speaking even without attribution. Some of the characters even tell their own tales in first person narration, giving the reader better insight into their goals and desires.
But don’t take my word for it. Don’t take Rob’s. This book is less than three bucks (by a whole penny!). Here’s a list of things that it costs less than, and will give you more enjoyment than:
- Starbuck’s caramel latte
- A pack of cigarettes
- Cab fare (even to an awesome thing)
- A sub sandwich
- A McDonald’s meal of more than 500 calories
- a pint of ice cream
- a bag of fancy rocks
You get the idea. And the book will last longer than all of these, the bag of fancy rocks excepted.
Seriously: Take a look. And thank you.
