New Box Set at Google Play Books for Epic Fantasy Fans



Ebooks have greatly enabled authors' ability to produce box sets of their works without having to haul around phone-book like masses of paper. I'm pleased to announce that the first series I wrote, The Rys Chronicles, is now a value bundle ebook box set available in the Google Play Books store.

The Rys Chronicles Box Set combines Union of Renegades, The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power into one ebook. 

This is a big, fat complete series of over 680,000 words of entertainment.

The fantasy novels within in it have consistently earned praise from many readers.


Book I: Union of Renegades has a solid 4-star rating out of 60 ratings.


Book II: The Goddess Queen maintains a 4.7-star rating out of 9 ratings.


Book III: Judgment Rising has a 3.8-star rating out of 6 ratings.


Book IV: The Borderlands of Power has a 4-star rating out of 4 ratings.

How to Find the Books from Google

It's easy to read ebooks from the Play Store. It's not just apps, games, and videos. If you've got a tablet, phone, laptop, or even a desktop computer, you can access the play store. There's even a store app for iPad or iPhone. Your Android device likely has an icon on the home screen that takes you right there. Then you just select the books area. You'll find tons of titles from publishing companies and indie authors like me.

Many Free Ebooks at the Play Store

Usually any fiction category at Google Play Books will have many free ebooks to offer. If you go to the Top Charts area, there will be a top free ebooks section. You'll find mostly classic novels here, but if you dig deeper into the categories, you'll start to see free titles mixed in with paid titles. On my desktop version of the Play Store, once I get into a category, there's a menu filter at the top that will let me sort by free or paid. You can access many categories via the "Additional Information" area on the page for any particular book. Perhaps you could click on a book you've already enjoyed and then start exploring its categories to find other titles you might like.

Because Google allows content producers to price ebooks at free, you'll be able to find a good supply of free reading at the Play Store. Sometimes these freebies are quite good and will tempt you to buy more titles by the author. It's how many of my fans discovered me.

So, if you try Union of Renegades for free and get hooked, remember there is a value bundle for the whole series now. Epic fantasy readers should definitely try my fiction. I'm a lover of the genre and have spent most of my adult life writing within in it.

The Rys Chronicles value bundle fantasy box set by Tracy Falbe


I'm very pleased to announce the publication of The Rys Chronicles complete series box set. The value ebook bundle contains all four novels of this series: Union of Renegades, The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power. 

This was the first series I wrote, and many people around the world have enjoyed the fantasy world of the rys. It's hard to believe how many years have gone by since I wrote these novels. They were created between the years 1997 through 2003. Although I believe that I have improved technically as a writer over the years, my first novels remain compelling. They've also earned some glowing reviews. New readers are discovering them every day and becoming engaged by the characters and caught up in the adventures.

My personal favorite is the third novel Judgment Rising, but there are many great moments in the first novel Union of Renegades that I remember writing. As that novel came together, I could really feel that I was a novelist and that my vision was taking form.

The Rys Chronicles inspired my next 4-book fantasy series Rys Rising, which is a prequel series that has also gone on to entertain people and earn good reviews.

At this point, I'm now in the midst of creating a new series Werewolves in the Renaissance. I spent some quality time writing its third part today. It will be my 11th novel when it's done.

Today, The Rys Chronicles Box Set went on sale at ebook retailers worldwide.

You can visit your preferred retailer and buy a copy. If you'd like to sample my writing first, you can get the first part Union of Renegades free at the same retailers as well.

My thoughts about historical fantasy on The Magic Happens podcast



Check Out Culture Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with The Magic Happens on BlogTalkRadio

Today I had the privilege of being interviewed by Annette Rochelle Aben from The Magic Happens. Our conversation was recorded live on the Tell Me a Story podcast. We spoke about my historical fiction and why people like scary, dark fantasy stories.

I related my adventure in Great Basin National Park when I toured Lehman Caves. That inspiring experience finally emerged in my latest novel Journey of the Hunted: Werewolves in the Renaissance 2 when a group of characters had to hide in a cave from a werewolf and an undying fext.

Excerpt from the novel:



With every step deeper into the mountain she became very aware of each breath as if air would cease to be available. The immensity of the mountain all around her bore down on her spirit. Her awareness of her miniscule body within the vastness of the world provoked anxieties. She imagined the cave collapsing and trapping her, never to see the sky again. To die in the hideous hard dark stoked her terror. The memory of the closing door of the iron maiden bit into her, and she struggled against her paralyzing thoughts.
Her hand was on her chest when she caught up to the musicians. They were only dim shuffling figures following the single light with plodding desperation.
When Altea gasped, Carlo looked back. “We’ll make it through,” he encouraged.
She felt herself nod and tried to take a deep breath, but the fear constricting her body resisted the effort. The world of the surface was utterly foreign to this hard slumbering interior. The darkness was beyond any night with eyes shut tight. Hammerlith’s meager lantern slipped through the black everything like a spider in the house of giants.
Altea put a hand on Carlo’s back because she needed the connection. He surely understood when her fingers clasped his shirt.
They reached a door of metal bars. Hammerlith unlocked it and led them through and then locked it behind them. They were secure in his mine, and Altea tried not to think of it as locked inside.
