Mythica – $0.99 ebook sale

Mythica: A Quest for Heroes: Official Movie Novelization is out in ebook and paperback on Amazon.  What’s even better, the ebook on Kindle is only 99 cents right now.  Go grab it here. It won’t be 99 cents for long.

The book itself was a fun project to write because it was based off a pre-existing movie.  Go check out the novel and then go watch the movie too.

About the Book:

Mythica: A Quest for Heroes

“Kevin Nielsen’s Mythica: A Quest for Heroes novelization is an epic fantasy thrill ride with a dash of poignant humanity….Bringing together the best elements from dungeon crawling and epic fantasy, Mythica is not to be missed.” —David J. West, author of Whispers Out of the Dust and Cold Slither

Mythica (the five movie franchise) is the most ambitious indie fantasy project ever undertaken. This official movie novelization now joins the ranks of this epic fantasy series.

Stuck in a life of indentured servitude, Marek dreams of becoming a wizard despite it being a dangerous profession and her position in life as essentially a crippled slave. When Marek’s stubbornness pushes her master over the edge, she escapes and sets out to make her own way in the world. No one takes the hopeful magician seriously until she meets a severe priestess named Teela, who is in such desperate need of help she accepts Marek’s offer. After recruiting a warrior named Thane and a thief named Dagen, Marek leads the four of them on an epic quest to defeat an ogre and rescue Teela’s sister.

“Mythica: A Quest for Heroes is a classic adventure with all the elements that make readers love fantasy.” —Paul Genesse, bestselling author of the Iron Dragon Series

“Fans of the film will be delighted, and anyone looking for a brisk tale filled with unexpected magic, relatable characters, and tension-filled action will love it too.” —Michael Darling, author of Got Luck

Shatter: By Nikki Trionfo

When I finally gave in (sarcasm warning) and decided to take writing seriously, one of the first people I met was the enigmatic and exceedingly energetic Nikki Trionfo.  I met her at Frank Cole’s book launch party for Afterlife Academy, though we’d had some interaction online prior to that.  I found her to be smart, funny, extremely optimistic, and, overall, one of the most genuine people I’d ever met.

Now, almost two years later, she’s releasing her debut novel, Shatter.

I’ll be honest and also beg forgiveness all at once.  I haven’t been able to read it yet.  Life circumstances (*read this as “baby #3 being due any day now and lots of day job shifts) have made it impossible to find the time to get it completely read.  However, I couldn’t miss the chance to help her out in her debut week.  That’s an important moment in the life of newly published author.

When I finish the book (and I will, trust me) I will post a review.  However, prior to that, I’m going to share the book description and encourage you to give the book a try if you enjoy YA murder mysteries (here’s looking at you, mom – murder mysteries have always been your thing).

Shatter Blurb

“We never knew there could be people in the orchard. Dangerous people.”

When a mysterious explosion kills her sister, Salem becomes convinced the death was no accident–it was a conspiracy. But no one else at her high school believes her, and all she has so far are theories and clues. With Carrie’s killers still out there, Salem’s not sure who she can trust. If she can’t she prove she’s right before it’s too late, the conspiracy might take another life—hers

About Nikki:

Nikki Trionfo lives in Riverton, Utah with five kids, a CrossFit-training husband who writes computer code, and lots of hip hop background music. Her teen murder mystery, SHATTER (May ’17 from Cedar Fort), won grand prize in LDStorymakers’ First Chapter Alongside Heather Clark, she hosts free writing webinars on YouTube at #50FirstChapters.

A committed party-girl, Nikki serves as the social coordinator of LDStorymakers Conference and chair of Storymakers Tribe. Other notable stuff includes an honorable mention in Writers of the Future and a spot in Utah Horror Writer’s shorty-story anthology. This all sounds really serious, but if you run into her, she gets down. Truly.

Give it a whirl if the blurb piques your interest.  I’ll share my review here once I’ve had time to finish the book (which will be after the baby comes).

Read on!
