Hello all. My name is Scott Fitzgerald Gray, and I'm pleased to announce that my new high-fantasy novel is live on the Kindle store. By way of always-awkward introduction, I'm a freelance writer, screenwriter, editor, feature-film story editor, and designer and editor of roleplaying games (primarily for Wizards of the Coast; my Amazon author page has details of some of my RPG works if you're into that sort of thing).

The first book being published under my new fiction imprint is Clearwater Dawn (Amazon link; or check out the book page at

An apprentice guard in the royal household of Brandishear, Chriani is a capable young warrior held back from attaining his full potential by a lifetime of dark anger. Lauresa is a princess about to be set aside as heir and married off for the sake of treaty - and the only woman Chriani has ever loved. When his mentor is murdered preventing an assassination attempt within the palace, Chriani is forced to become Lauresa's protector - the two reconciling a forbidden passion even as they find themselves caught up in a maelstrom of political intrigue, ancient racial hatred, a society living in mortal fear of sorcery, and a decades-old plot to plunge five nations into genocidal war.

The book is selling for $2.99, but I'm also making a limited number of review copies available for free. Please have a look at the sample, and if you're interested in reviewing, email [email protected] (or post your email address here) and I'll get back to you.

Please understand that there's no parenthetically clandestine "positive review" being sought in this offer. This isn't an attempt to scam fake accolades; simply to get the book into the hands of people who might be interested in sharing their thoughts on it. I'm very happy with how Clearwater Dawn has turned out, and I hope others will be, too. However, I'm a firm believer that if a thoughtful and reasoned review says "I wasn't crazy about the book because it did X, Y, and Z", it's still useful information for a prospective reader who does likes books that do X, Y, and Z.

Thanks for your time.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.
