Google Play Expands Distribution of My Fantasy Ebooks to Saudi Arabia, and other Arab countries



I noticed in the news that nine countries have been added to the global distribution of my fantasy novels through Google Play Books. People in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, and Bahrain  now have easy access to my fiction, especially on Android phones and tablets that probably have a link to the Play Store on their home screens.

I appreciate the international reach that I'm able to achieve as an author on Google Play. Although most of my sales come from English-speaking countries like the United States, Canada, and Australia, sometimes sales pop up in places like Switzerland or France or Spain. Now, maybe a few people in Middle Eastern countries might read my stories.

My works at Google Play are mostly fantasy fiction titles. I've authored three different series and all of them start with free ebooks. See more about them below and pick one out to read.

Rys Rising: Book I


Serving Onja makes it right.

In this passionate epic told from many angles, the young outlaw Amar becomes a dreaded warlord, the terror of kings. His ambitions blind him to the trivial diversions of mere female company until he must block a treaty marriage between two powerful tribes. Confronted by the desperate Princess Demeda, he feels temptation again, but the longings of his ruined heart cannot overcome his pure love for Onja. She is a mysterious outcast from the magical rys race that is oppressed by the tabre of Nufal. Onja has commanded Amar to dominate the humans of Gyhwen while she plots to overthrow her tabre masters. To support her cause, she aims to seduce Dacian, a prodigy among rys whose powers have been hobbled by his loyalty to the ruling tabre order. Will he endure more dark abuses for the sake of peace or reach out to Onja?

While a rys rebellion secretly brews, the human minions of the tabre battle pillaging savages. The young estate lord Cruce Chenomet joins the fight. Violent trials and sensual surprises break the trail on his journey to manhood. Packed with primitive energy and complex motivations, the intertwining stories and rising stakes of this fantasy world will indulge your cravings for intrigue, bravery, desire, and freedom.

Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I


Have you ever looked at the facts of your life and realized your dreams won't come true? Have you ever looked into the unknown and seen opportunity? For Dreibrand Veta, a young officer in the Horde of the Atrophane Empire, these questions explode from his spirit in a fit of rage and launch him into an epic struggle. After he encounters a rare super race, the rys, he is forced to choose sides between passionate rivals and navigate his way through a foreign culture all while plotting to seize his own wealth and glory.

In this opening novel of The Rys Chronicles you'll meet a man scarred by bad deeds who answers the call of a heroic cause. An unconventional heroine will tug at your sympathies as she bravely faces adversity with all the strengths and vulnerabilities of her womanhood. And overarching it all are the rys. Their magic makes them superior to humans, but they are not above employing humans in their deadly schemes.

Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale


Thal is wanted for Devil worship and shape shifting but still boldly walks the streets of 16th century Prague. Jesuits hunt him. Mercenaries fear him. Musicians sing his praise, and women are captivated by his alpha swagger.

Born of a witch and a sorcerer, he is summoned when his desperate mother casts the werewolf spell before facing torture and execution. Burdened with her magical call for vengeance Thal seeks the men that killed her. His hunt is complicated when the Magistrate’s stepdaughter Altea Kardas crosses his path. Horrified that her community is burning women to death, she can confide her doubt and fear only to Thal.

He desires her greatly but knows he will bring ruin upon her. Across Bohemia and beyond people who are different are labeled heretics in a restless world hobbled by tyrannical ignorance. The Renaissance has thrown the Holy Roman Empire into turmoil. Printed books are spreading radical ideas. Firearms are triggering a new age of warfare. And the human spirit is shaking off obedience.

Thal embodies the ancient magic of the pagan past. He challenges a world conquered by a spiritual system that denies the flesh and forgets the Earth. And he awakens within Altea recognition of these truths. She believes any risk is worth loving him until she becomes the bait in a trap set by Thal’s enemies.

Kobo Books Offers $10,000 prizes to Canadian Authors

Kobo Books, an international ebook retailer that distributes my titles, has announced a writing prize for Canadian authors that debuted a novel in 2015. Qualifying titles must be for sale at the Kobo site. Both publishers and self publishers may submit entries in the categories of Romance, Nonfiction, and Literary Fiction.

The winner in each category will receive $10,000 and merchandising love in the Kobo store. 

Authors or publishers that wish to enter a title have until March 11, 2016 to apply at http://www.kobo.com/emergingwriter

I thought I'd spread the word about this although I can't enter because my books aren't in the right categories and I don't live in Canada. My novels are epic fantasy or historical fantasy. They've earned some good ratings from readers.

All my series start with a free ebook, so there's no risk in picking one up to read. See my novels at Kobo.
