Havoc Rising - Hi Res Cover

Title: Havoc Rising
Author: Brian S. Leon
Publication Date: June 16, 2015
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing

Amazon ~ Barnes & Nobles ~ Kobo

Eternal life. Eternal battle.

Steve—Diomedes Tydides to his Trojan War buddies—just had a bad day on his charter fishing boat in San Diego, but when the goddess Athena calls on her faithful warrior for another secret mission, he’s ready. The bomb that exploded inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art isn’t the crime American authorities think it is. Someone also stole the Cup of Jamshid, and Diomedes knows its fortune-telling abilities won’t be used for anything benign.

Though Diomedes recovers the Cup from a determined shaman holed up beneath Central Park, when he finds his allies slain and the Cup taken once more, he knows he’s up against a truly powerful enemy. Over a millennium has passed since Diomedes last contended with Medea of Colchis, deranged wife of Jason the Argonaut, but neither her madness nor her devotion to Hecate, goddess of witchcraft, has waned, and she intends to use the Cup of Jamshid to release across the world a dark brand of chaos unseen in human history.

Immortal since the Trojan War, Diomedes must once again fight for mortals he understands less and less, against a divine evil he may never truly defeat.

What’s Up Next

Brian S. Leon

Author of Havoc Rising

When I first started writing Havoc Rising I did it with the intention that it was the beginning of a series of books revolving around the same character. I really like the main character of Diomedes/Steve Dore and he opens up worlds of possibilities because he’s 3200 years old. Almost immediately after finishing Havoc Rising, I started the second book, tentatively called The Hanner Brid, or The Half Breed. It starts almost where Havoc left off and takes off from there. I wanted to write a book that was non-stop in its action kind of the way a Jason Bourne movie starts fast and gets faster. It begins with Diomedes on the run and doesn’t stop until the end, when a whole new can of worms gets opened up. The story line also allowed me to continue a larger subplot that kind of developed as I was working.

With Havoc I stayed more in the realm of mythology, so I wanted to get away from that for the next book and move more into European folklore and legend. For The Hanner Brid I also needed an antagonist that was similar to Diomedes in a lot of respects and an equal. I dug way into European folklore and early epic poems and tales and developed some great supporting characters. One of the things that’s important to me and the way I write is the use of pre-existing characters from folklore and legend. Everyone who talks about fairies mentions Queen Mab and probably Titania, but no one talks about Elegast, or Amoret or her sister Belphoebe. I doubt many know of Nicnevin, or Goibnu. But if Tolkien could do it—he took the Dvergar from the Poetic Edda and changed their names ever so slightly and called them dwarves in the Hobbit—why couldn’t I? They make for some awesome characters and they already have ties to our world.

The other thing I really like to do is incorporate real-life events into my books. So the Hanner Brid begins with the blackout that happened here in San Diego a few years back and ends with the death of Kim Jong Il. (I promise I make a connection that’s pretty cool.) For book three, tentatively called Requiem for the Fallen, I begin with the infamous axeman murders in New Orleans in 1919. That book revolves around the mythology of the fallen angels from the non-canonical Book of Enoch. I already even have storylines for books four through seven as well—all inspired by historical events and figures.

That’s the cool part of having a 3200 year old character–almost nothing is off limits.

Brian S LeonAUTHOR BIO:

Brian S. Leon is truly a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none. He began writing in order to do something with all the useless degrees, knowledge and skills–most of which have no practical application in civilized society–he accumulated over the years.

His varied interests include, most notably, mythology of all kinds and fishing, and he has spent time in jungles and museums all over the world studying and oceans and seas across the globe chasing fish, sometimes even catching them. He has also spent time in various locations around the world doing other things that may or may not have ever happened.

Inspired by stories of classical masters like Homer and Jules Verne, as well as modern writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, David Morrell and Jim Butcher, combined with an inordinate amount of free time, Mr. Leon finally decided to come up with tales of his own.

Brian currently resides in San Diego, California.

Guest Post:

Writing Through The Pain

by Dana Leipold

 

When people read my book, Burnt Edges, they have two reactions:

“Whoa, this is tough to read,” or, “How did you write about this without going into a depression?”

Writing about abuse is difficult—whether it is your own or someone else’s. In my case, the story is about my mother and the abuse she suffered as a child from both parents. And it’s the worst kind of abuse you can imagine: incest. Not to say that any other forms of abuse aren’t awful. Abuse is horrific. No matter what form it takes.

To answer the question how did I write about it without letting it drag me under is more difficult than I can articulate. It DID drag me under, and for most of my life. Writing about it was the final act of healing for me. As I wrote the more difficult scenes I had to take breaks. It was important to step away and clear my head. And I’m not done writing about it either. There is another book I’m working on now that follows the story from another perspective.

Since I did not experience the abuse, I had to understand it in order to make it real.

The way I made it authentic was by interviewing my mom. She was very open and willing to talk to me about the details. Because of this, I wasn’t afraid to ask questions that seemed awkward or difficult. The book became a way for me to understand my mother in a deeper way. And I learned a lot.

See, abuse doesn’t just affect the victim. It affects everyone the victim comes into contact for the rest of his or her life. It seeps into the crevices of the victims’ DNA and becomes a part of who they are and who they will be so when that person tries to form relationships, the abuse is there. That is the story I am telling about my mother’s life and my life.

I was lucky that my mom was so open to this process and wasn’t afraid of allowing me to tell her part of the story that inevitably weaved into mine. She still suffers from the effects of the abuse but has come a long way from where she used to be, we both have. I have gone from feeling responsible for saving her to resentful and angry to finally accepting who she is and how she deals with life.

Writing this story is difficult but it is the best thing I’ve ever done to help both me and my mom move on.

Tour & Guest Post — The Dragonkin Trilogy: In a land haunted by the legacy of dead dragons…

Dragonkin Tour Large Banner

Welcome to my stop on for the Dragonkin Trilogy tour!  We’re excited to promote its second book in the series, Knightswrath by Michael Meyerhofer. We’re also featuring the first book, Wythfire.

Today, we have a guest post from the author himself on what he chose to avoid while writing Knightswrath.  Be sure to scroll down and check it out! 😉

Title: Wytchfire (Bk 1)
Series: Dragonkin Trilogy
Author: Michael Meyerhofer
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
Publication Date: April 28, 2014
Genre: High Fantasy

Amazon | Barnes & Nobles | Kobo | iTunes

In a land haunted by the legacy of dead dragons, Rowen Locke has been many things: orphan, gravedigger, mercenary. All he ever wanted was to become a Knight of Crane and wield a kingsteel sword against the kind of grown horrors his childhood knows all too well. But that dream crumbled—replaced by a new nightmare.

War is overrunning the realms, an unprecedented duel of desire and revenge, steel and sorcery. And for one disgraced man who would be a knight, in a world where no one is blameless, the time has come to decide which side he’s on.

 


Title: Knightswrath (Bk 2)
Series: Dragonkin Trilogy
Author: Michael Meyerhofer
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
Publication Date: May 26, 2015
Genre: High Fantasy

Amazon | Barnes & Nobles | Kobo | iTunes

Rowen Locke has achieved his dream of becoming a Knight of the Crane, and he now bears Knightswrath, the legendary sword of Fâyu Jinn. But the land remains torn, and though Rowen suffers doubts, he would see it healed. His knightly order is not what it seems, though, and allies remain thin. When Rowen and his friends seek an alliance with the forest-dwelling Sylvs, a tangle of events results in a midnight duel that teaches Rowen a dangerous lesson and leaves him with a new companion of uncertain loyalties.

The sadistic Dhargots still threaten the kingdoms, but another menace lurks in the shadows, playing a game none can see. As Rowen struggles to prove his worth—to his allies and to himself—chaos raises its hand to strike. A price must be paid, and not even the wielder of Knightswrath will remain untouched.

Guest Post:

Knightswrath—What I Avoided

by Michael Myerhofer

 

People who have read Wytchfire know that the world of the Dragonkin Trilogy is not always a friendly place, and that will grow even more apparent in Knightswrath. This is a world where those born with the “gift” of magic are often killed at birth, and even if they do survive, they face a lifetime of running from mobs and armies. But this is also a world in which the people who wield magic (called the Shel’ai) sometimes use unnecessarily brutal methods to defend themselves. Put another way, there’s a great deal of moral ambiguity built into these conflicts, and like Rowen Locke (the everyman protagonist), the reader might not always know exactly who is right and who is wrong.

Furthermore, not all these conflicts involve magic. Some, sadly, could have been taken from our own newspaper headlines. For example, orphans in the slums of Lyos (also called Dark Quarter) have to worry about a lot more than starvation, and there are hints that especially during his childhood, Rowen fought off opponents who, in one sense, were far more sinister than greatwolves, sellswords, and vengeful sorcerers.

Much has been made (and for good reason) of the way sexual violence has been handled in Game of Thrones, HBO’s epic (and, lately, increasingly loose) adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s fantastic series, A Song of Ice and Fire. I reside in the camp that says dark fantasy should be gritty and realistic, but I also hate it when violence (especially sexual violence) is used purely for shock value. To me, that isn’t just irresponsible writing; it’s also lazy. So even though the books of the Dragonkin Trilogy are unapologetically brutal at times, I hope readers will notice the driving purpose behind the various conflicts.

One thing I’ve also learned as a writer is that you don’t always have to show the monster. Often, you get more psychological mileage out of referencing dark events without actually showing them, which also allows you to bypass the whole, muddy debate over what is and what isn’t gratuitous. Igrid, a new character in Knightswrath, is a prime example of this. Without giving spoilers, I think it’s safe to say that Igrid’s past is even more troubling than Rowen’s, which meant I could have included some pretty graphic flashbacks. I decided to avoid this, though, because fantasy readers are smart and imaginative, and often, a quick reference can speak volumes.

All that being said, another thing I avoided in Knightswrath was the impulse to make things darker by filtering out my natural love of gallows humor. Human beings in the real world often use humor to deal with messy situations, and the characters in the Dragonkin Trilogy are no different. In fact, I think that Jalist would make a good stand-up comic. And hopefully, readers will sense that’s there hope and a kind of wild beauty throughout the world of the Dragonkin Trilogy, too. After all, that’s what Rowen, Silwren, and the others are fighting for.

Back at work but deeply in debt, Yeager meets bookstore owner Charlie Buchanan in St. Louis and jumps at the chance to haul a load of remainder books to Austin for her. On the way south, a crew of truck thieves tracks his every move. But none of them know what Charlie’s ex has smuggled inside the book pallets, who he stole it from, or how far the owner will go to get it back. Charlie’s the first person Yeager has cared about in a long time, but as their bond deepens, so does the danger they’re in.

With enemy forces closing in, Yeager battles greed, corruption, and his own fatalism in a bid to hold true to Yeager’s First Law: come home at the end of the day.

Shh…Listen, or Don’t:
S.L. Stacker on Background Noise

Stop what you’re doing and listen. I mean really listen. What do you hear? If you’re like me and work from home, you probably hear a washing machine, dishwasher, dog barking, etc. When you’re trying to write, do you have to have some type of background noise? Does it need to be totally silent? Are you one of those people where you can live with or without the noise?

Depending on the time and day, my need varies. Some days I find myself enjoying the quiet surrounding me. Other days, I crave some type of noise to assure myself I’m in the land of the living. I would love to be able to say I can take or leave background noise on a daily basis, but unfortunately I can’t.

When I first began writing, I could sit down and write no matter where I was. There could be kids yipping with glee as they sailed through the air on their swing, or I could be the only person at home with zero noise. It didn’t matter. I was so focused on what I was doing, I didn’t pay any attention to my surroundings. Those were the good days!

The next phase along my writing path found me needing the background noise. When I would sit alone in the quiet of my house, I would stare at my screen hoping and praying the voices would talk to me. Despite my begging, they would never allow me to hear them until my family was home—the kids screaming at each other, my husband sitting in the garage listening to music. It was then, during the busiest and noisiest time in my household, the voices would begin talking, and I’d find myself in front of my computer, my fingers moving as fast as I could manage to keep up with story.

Now, as I stated above, my current stage of writing requires quiet and noise, but I never know which I’ll need on any given day. Luckily, my noisy requirement doesn’t have to be my family. I can start our super loud dishwasher, turn my music on, and write without any problems. However, when the silent days are required, the hum of the air conditioning unit running can be a nuisance. It’s on those days, I go through the house and make sure everything is off. I also know once my family begins trickling through the door from school or work, my writing for the day is over until they go to bed.

If you aren’t sure which type of person you are, I suggest taking a few days and paying attention to your most productive days. If you find you’re a noise magnet, and thrive during these times, try writing with some type of background noise all the time. If you need the peace and quiet, find somewhere in your house or outside the house where you can get that. Don’t try forcing yourself to write during a time you know won’t be productive because in most cases, the quality of what you write, will falter. It’s better to acknowledge your need for or lack of background noise. Use it to your advantage!

With the truth of Ellie’s place among the Balance Keepers finally coming to light, training now begins. She must learn to harness the powers that are growing within her, some spiraling out of control. Confusion and frustration become her constant companions, as her search for answers does nothing but push her further from the man she’s come to love.

David is The Light, the speaker of truth, the whisperer of good in the world. His desire for more than he can have with his new apprentice tears at the fabric of his own stability, bit by bit. He knows what the future holds — and just how damning it will be for Ellie if she’s not prepared to handle it — but he’s forbidden to help.

As tragedy becomes reality, will she reach for The Light, or run into the soothing arms of The Darkness?
