A mage finds his magic, a leader finds her strength, a hero finds his courage.

Possessing the Grimstone now live. $3.99 Approximately 62,000 words.

"A storm is coming. The sky darkens. Wind howls. Thunder rocks the land. The world of Athora is in grave danger.

An unknown enemy rises in the uncharted lands of the east, emerging from the mists of the Fifling sea. Armed with a powerful magical artifact thought lost over a thousand years ago, they're destroying everything in their path. Yet hope remains, for this unstoppable evil only possesses one piece of this weapon, the Grimstone. Should they discover the remaining pieces, the world will fall.

All the people of Athora unite to stand against this strange power and the nightmarish army that wields it. Pim of the Wivering race and the human warrior Tolan begin a quest to stop the unthinkable by uncovering the location of the last two pieces of the stone before the forces of darkness get to them first. The two allies and their companions race against time, meeting friends and foe alike in an epic adventure of trust, betrayal, magic and danger.

Will they find the stone before their world is laid to waste or will the very item they seek be their undoing?"

Don't miss out on this all-new adventure.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--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!

Incredible art by Mike Gauss. Possessing the Grimstone is my first full-length epic fantasy novel.

Join Pim of the Wivering race, Tolan a warrior of Cardoon, Drith the King of the southern desert and Shannara of the D'Elkyrie Warrior Women race in a fight to save an entire world from destruction.

An evil race from the uncharted lands to the east have discovered a piece of the fabled Grimstone, a stone thought lost over a thousand years ago. If they find the other two pieces before our heroes, the world of Athora will fall and all of its people with it.

This is one of the first fantasy novels I have ever written. I'vr mostly been known for writing horror from the time he could read and write
but this story demanded to be told, Possessing the Grimstone would not let me rest until its tale was told. The characters took on a life of their own...

Pim of the Wivering race, a peaceful race of farmers blessed with the ability to run faster than any animal in the world.

Tolan a warrior of Cardoon-the richest and most powerful city in the world.

Drith-King of the south and the desert people. His intentions are always under suspicion.

Shannara-Queen of the warrior women race from the mountains.

All must work together to stop a great evil from finding the ultimate weapon...the Grimstone!

From the blurb:
A mage finds his magic, a leader finds her strength, a hero finds his courage.

A storm is coming. The sky darkens. Wind howls. Thunder rocks the land. The
world of Athora is in grave danger.
An unknown enemy rises in the uncharted lands of the east, emerging from the
mists of the Fifling sea. Armed with a powerful magical artifact thought
lost over a thousand years ago, they¹re destroying everything in their path.
Yet hope remains, for this unstoppable evil only possesses one piece of this
weapon, the Grimstone. Should they discover the remaining pieces, the world
will fall.

All the people of Athora unite to stand against this strange power and the
nightmarish army that wields it. Pim of the Wivering race and the human
warrior Tolan begin a quest to stop the unthinkable by uncovering the
location of the last two pieces of the stone before the forces of darkness
get to them first. The two allies and their companions race against time,
meeting friends and foe alike in an epic adventure of trust, betrayal, magic and danger.

Will they find the stone before their world is laid to waste or will the very item they seek be their undoing?
