Aloha! Meet The Dread Hammer, a darkly comic fairy tale of love, war, murder, marriage, and fate. It's my eighth novel, though the first under my pen name, Trey Shiels.

Here's an excerpt of a write-up just out from my hometown newspaper, The Maui News:
"The book revolves around a mysterious half-human warrior named Smoke, who is surprised to find himself taking a break from slaughtering villagers to fall in love with a young woman. But as much as he wants to leave behind his old life of violence to take care of her and their young family, he finds his supernatural skills as a killer are still in demand."

Linda-

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

Please keep in mind that KindleBoards is a Reader and Kindle Fan forum. As such, self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You haven't done anything wrong, just our standard reminder. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--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).

--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

--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. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--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: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,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.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

The Dread Hammer is my first fantasy novel, and the first I've published under my pen name, Trey Shiels. It's also my shortest, at 65,000 words--a length that I really like--and it was written far faster than any of my traditionally published books. For those who might be interested, here's a blog post on the writing process.
