Well, it’s here! The latest tale in the G1: The Guardians series, and my first novella. After a considerable amount more work than the two novelettes, and the editing and proofreading consequent to having written the story, the new child is born.
It is my pleasure to announce the birth of The Sigil of Ahriman (Being Part 3 of G1: The Guardians). The ebook is available (or will be in the next few hours) to buy from all Amazon stores. The paperback will be available soon. Part 1 (Shade of Evil) and Part 2 (Evil Under The Circle) are both available from most major online book stores. The first is also available as a paperback from FeedARead.com and the second will be available as a paperback very soon, from skoobebooks.
An artefact of evil from antiquity is in the hands of a madman, and only the Guardians can oppose his insane schemes!
Against all precedent, a stranger is allowed into the inner sanctum of the Guardians. This man brings news of something that threatens the human race with eternal slavery. An artefact has been stolen, the Sigil of Ahriman. Now, it is in the possession of an unknown person, and there can few reasons for that – to tap its power, risking freeing Ahriman, or to deliberately bring the ancient god of Darkness into the world again.
G1, devastated by their last mission, must face this new challenge and win. Defeat is unthinkable.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, the image used on this cover was created by my son, Reuben. The cover in its entirety is a combination of his artistic talent and my own efforts. I had a vague notion of what I wanted, in terms of the image, but, in all honesty, the brief I gave Reuben was very imprecise. It’s all the more amazing, therefore, that he somehow succeeded in capturing exactly what I wanted. I hope it doesn’t sound wrong but I am very proud of the result! I am particularly looking forward to seeing it in paperback.
I have started work on the fourth tale in this series. I have the concept for what may be involved in the challenges meeting G1, but exactly where the story will take them is yet to be seen. Rest assured, though, that they will be facing considerable danger and survival is never guaranteed in their business.
