There are heroes. There are anti-heroes. And then, there’s Prince Dietrich.
Freshly returned to Monrich from his little escapade of war and deception, the newly wed Prince Dietrich—Dick to his friends—just wants to be left alone, so he can gamble, drink and keep on wishing for the early demise of his father. But King Ulaf is having none of it. He has devised a new challenge for his recalcitrant heir: Dietrich must go to Ostfort and assume the wardenship of the palatine. Or else.
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, since it’s Dick we’re talking about…everything. For starters.
The Glorious Adventures of Glamorous Prince Dietrich continues the absurd series of mishaps, accidents, machinations, lies, treachery, lewdness, greed, malice, and mischief that embody our troublesome, misunderstood protagonist.
We are only days away from the fabulous publication of the second book in my (un)humorous series Woes & Hose (geddit, geddit?). The book aptly-titled The Glorious Adventures of Glamorous Prince Dietrich is undergoing final treatment ere it goes live. For the time being, we have a mighty cover to consider, to wit:
The second book in the Woes & Hose series is coming along nicely. There’s a cover! A glorious cover for The Glorious Adventures of Glamorous Prince Dietrich. As always, designed by legendary Anton Kokarev. I asked him for an appropriate sequel to the first book, plus an even more punchable face for our anti-hero protagonist. To wit, the results.
Ladies, gentlemen, swoon not. For what I’m about to tell you will make you … swoon. I am starting the publication process of the second book in the most wittily and elegantly named fantasy series of all times, Woes & Hose. Our beloved anti-hero is coming back in The Glorious Adventures of Glamorous Prince Dietrich!
Dear readers and chance lurkers, you’ll probably be somewhat enthused to learn that The Lost Words series is now also available on Smashwords. Following a successful experimentation with I Shall Slay the Dragon!, I decided to port several more titles to this platform, starting with The Lost Words, a complete, four-book series published in 2012-2015. Best of all? The first book, The Betrayed is free! An early holiday season gift, if you will.
It’s the end of the year as we know it, it’s the end of the year as we know it, and I feel benevolent. Commencing December 18 through December 31, ALL of my Kindle format books will be free for grabs on Amazon. D’you hear? All of them! Different books on different days, but in essence, you get two full weeks of free giveaways. Now that is what I call a holiday gift.
Rejoice! ‘Tis the holiday season, and I am feeling ultra-uber-benevolent. Over the next two weeks, no less than five different titles of my fantasy repertoire will be free for grabs on Amazon Kindle. Anywhere between 2-3 days, each book will star with zero cost, up for grabs. You should, plus review the books, because you never know when a new contest will come up, and that means gadgets and prizes.
Recently, we had a lot of buzz and talk around Prince Dietrich. Let us go back in time a little, shall we. The second book in The Lost Words series, The Broken, is due for a bit of cosmetic refresh. There shall be a new rad cover coming soon. Designed by the very dope badass Anton Kokarev (kanartist)! Behold and enjoy.
