Okay, so I’m sitting here waiting for Amazon’s Kindle direct Publishing to finish approving my latest ebook offering, the Back Roads of Limbo. They say it could take twelve hours. *sigh*
I have my hope that it won’t take as long as that, but I’ve not published directly with Kindle like this, having done my previous ebooks principally through Smashwords. I havent’ given up on Smashwords, but I am eager to see if the application process at Smashwords is what has been turning away potential readers.
So the book is about:
A private dick gets shot up to keep him from giving away trade secrets.
A child remembers the monster he called friend.
A secret agent discovers he is being watched while waiting for the man he is assigned to kill.
A rich Sultan has second thoughts about a magic transaction he has hired a Djinn to process for him.
A thief tries to steal a magic orb and gets more than he bargained for.
A brother and sister get lost in the woods on a winter’s night.
Another private eye tries to rescue his client, and discovers they’re up against the most dangerous creatures around: angels.
A man reflects on the loss of his best friend.
A woman goes to her night job and accidentally stumbles upon an ugly secret about the world she lives in when a stranger gives her a special stone.
Yet another private detective’s Girl Friday makes Christmas Dinner for two and then tries to help him solve a case.
A game developer finds his true medium when he starts writing an interactive novel about a singing detective.
A member of the Sisterhood of Brianna sets out to prevent a Darkling from corrupting a nobleman’s innocent daughter.
Another secret agent tries to find and rescue his young protégé, who has been captured by a secret worldwide criminal organisation.
The Sultan discovers the price for trying to scotch the deal with the Djinn is much higher than he ever imagined
These are just a small handful of the story ideas from the mind of Lee Edward McIlmoyle, author of the novels The Bride of War and Terminal Monday, and the novellas The Dark Guild (LinkTales Volume One) and ASHES: Infinite Redress. This is just the beginning. Once you’re on the Road to Limbo, you can never go home again.
I’ll post the link when the book finally drops, assuming they email me to notify me. They may just expect me to consult the psychic friends network.
Meanwhile, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season, whatever your holiday may be, or even if you don’t have one. Thank you all for reading, and I’ll try to have more goodies in store for the very near future.
