New book launched

On Saint Valentine’s Day, very late, I self-published my latest short story ebook, through Smashwords.  Now, this one was a little different from previous releases.  It’s a tale in its own right, but it’s also linked to Thief.  I call it a prequel, but only because it starts a little before the events in Thief take place.  In fact, it overlaps that story.  It’s definitely not a sequel, that I’m sure about.  So, what is this ebook?  Well, it’s all made clear below.

 GabrinTheAvatarGabrin: The Avatar is the sixth short story ebook I’ve released through Smashwords.  It is the second book in a developing series which has the provisional title of Thief, the same as the first story.  To quote:

Gabrin Parr, son of the mighty Elthan Parr, discovers the terrible fate which hangs over him, thanks to his courageous mother. Rebelling, he flees, until he learns of his mother’s cruel death. Driven by that, he determines to destroy his father – and the evil he contains. Can he triumph over an evil that has lasted for thousands of years?

The ebook is available in multiple formats from Smashwords or as an ePub from Goodreads.  If you do download it, or any of my ebooks, I would very much appreciate a review on either/both Smashwords/Goodreads.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
