This is it, my faithful readers and fans… the very beginning of the beautiful, awesome, peerless journey into the world of Xeresgate!
It’s been seemingly countless hours of getting the formats just rightly and getting the cover just how I wanted it, but I finally have a finished product that I am proud of… so much so that I can’t even WAIT the 5-7 business days before it goes live on Amazon.com to offer it to you all!!
This is the cover (in case you’re wondering)…
This is my Magnum Opus, folks. I am not exaggerating when I say it’s the best thing I’ve read since Shakespeare and Tolkien!
But don’t take MY word for it! “Look Inside” at the first link (for the Kindle eBook version) and see for yourself!
Link to the Kindle eBook version – available immediately on your Kindle!
Link to the trade Paperback version – will need to be mailed, but comes with visual examples of the Taijitic Seal and the Flag of Xeresgate that is not seen on the Kindle cover!
Whether you want something to snuggle into bed with, read on the subway or bus on the way to work, or just something to read in-between Dagorhir battles – THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!
People have asked me what it’s about (that don’t have the luxury of reading the summary links above like YOU all do), and I tell them that it’s just easier to say what it ISN’T about! And it’s really true. But just in case you guys think I’m messing with you on that point, feel free to browse the Tags below this post… EVERYTHING in those Tags can be found in the book. Trust me; YOU’LL LOVE IT!!
Once you’ve gotten a copy, be sure to stop back by here and leave a comment saying what you enjoyed about it, what interested you, or just what stood out the most! I’d sincerely like to know.
As always, THANKS FOR READING!
UPDATE: Below are just the Tags relating to the first 15 chapters. My hands are about to fall off from typing, but I’ll make you all a deal – for every 15 books sold, I’ll put up the tags for the next 15 chapters. (So yeah… I wasn’t kidding when I said it was easier to say what ISN’T in the book!)

Wow, I just saw your post and I’m already on the 2nd chapter fascinated by your story! This is coincidental as well because a few nights ago I was reading on Hermes Tresmigustus-and stumbled upon Magnus Opus. I’ll do a review after this Great Work is fully read!
I know it gets a bit cerebral at times, but I think most people can still relate. 😉
I’ll look forward to seeing what you think.
1/2 way through your book – probably finish it tonight 🙂
A quick reader – good to hear! 🙂
Where did you hear about my book, if you don’t mind my asking?
I came across your blog and thought “what the hell, I will buy it.” Funny though, I commented that I had purchased it and you replied for me to tell you what I thought – but I can no longer find that comment.
Me neither – the only other one was from someone called “Sensuality”. Did you use to post under that name?
Nope. It was..you know I will find the exact date because I bought the book that day….Maybe my reply was never “approved”?
It would have been March 9th. Either way, I am enjoying the book so far 🙂
Yeah, I checked that date. Maybe you MEANT to post something…?
The only people that posted (or attempted to post) comments that day were myself, EK, and the Sensuality person I previously mentioned.
I’ll trust you had good intentions to post, though. 😉
And I’m stoked to hear you’re enjoying it. I’ve been getting so many troll reviews from haters in my past on Amazon lately, that it was starting to get a little frustrating. 😛
No, I swear I am NOT going nuts…yet! LOL
HA! Found it – it was on Harsh Reality!
That explains it. ^_^
Yes! I am sorry! Now I remember – THAT is how I found you and your book. I love to read and thought, “What the heck – I will check it out!” I love to support people, their causes and their projects so I purchased it!
Well I’m certainly glad you did. Did you get the eBook or did you wait for the paperback copy?
Paperback! Hello!? Pffft. I am old school 😉
Good to hear. I’m an old soul as well. 🙂
If you enjoy the book well enough to write a favorable review on Amazon when you’re done, I’ll send you a copy of the illustrated edition (which will be slightly better edited – and on cream-colored paper [makes a difference – who knew??]) when I’m done with it for just what it costs me to ship it (I think it’s $5.80.) from the post office.
Just a little something for a faithful reader. 😉
Ah how fun, thank you. I will write a review.
I am enjoying the book – although I have to say, if I may, the as far as I am in the story, the cover just doesn’t ‘match’ it for me. It’s not that I dislike the cover, it just doesn’t seem to match what I have read do far. Sorry if that sounds bad…..just an observation.
:: hides ::
No – I get it. It was what I had in mind after the story was done, really.
You’ll probably start “feeling” the cover around chapter 51. Heck, the coloring of the Taijitic Seal (on the book spine) isn’t explained until 44. And the Xeresgatian Flag (on the back) isn’t even mentioned until 63!
The story picks up a LOT of late steam (you’ll discover), but I’d assume any dectilogy would be like that. And I have to assume, as I’m writing the very first one ever. 😉
