Step into high fantasy…
With this week’s featured #WriterWednesday Indie Author:
Michael Dellert lives in the Greater New York City area. Following a traditional publishing career spanning nearly two decades, he now works as a freelance writer, editor, publishing consultant, and writing coach. He is also the sole writer, editor, and publisher of the blog MDellertDotCom: Adventures in Indie Publishing. He holds a Master’s Degree in English Language & Literature from Drew University, and a certificate from the Cornell University School of Criticism & Theory (2009). He is the author of two fantasy fiction novellas: Hedge King in Winter and A Merchant’s Tale.
The king has been crippled. Can his brother hold the kingdom together against the machinations of their rival cousin?
Read and enjoy Hedge King in Winter, the first tale in the Matter of Manred. The new on-going fantasy novella is now available in Print and for Kindle and Nook.
This exciting new sword-and-sorcery action tale follows the continuing adventures of the warriors, kings, and priests of the Matter of Manred Saga.
Follow the adventures of Lord Eowain, his brother King Lórcan, and their chief minister Medyr as they struggle to hold the throne against the villainous Lord Tnúthgal.
Eowain eyed his cousin up and down. Eowain wasn’t a tall man, but neither was Tnúthgal. His cousin was grizzle-bearded with age, but no less burly than himself. Eowain knew him for a veteran of a fierce history, of a generation with his own father. As Eowain stepped forward, Tnúthgal did not shirk from him, bridling in his coat of steel-ringed leather.
Corentin, a young foreign trader of the House Pelan arrives in the uncertain lands of Droma, tasked to deliver a mysterious chest to a far-away sage in a remote corner of the kingdom. Accompanied by his mercenary bodyguard, a young local priest, and their native scout, Corentin sets out on a journey that will change his life forever.
This is no shiny happy fantasy of noble knights, on noble steeds, acting nobly.
A Merchant’s Tale is the second installment in The Matter of Manred Saga, a new cycle of medieval romances, action adventures, heroic fantasies, mysterious priests, and their dark and forgetful gods, brought to you from the fiction workshop of Michael E. Dellert.
This exciting serialized fantasy novella is now available for FREE on Tablo Publishing.
Set once more in the Land of Droma, this wholly new Tale introduces new characters, new places, and new dangers!
“Now,” said their host, “Merchant, as the Gods may you bless, since you know so much of that land of Iathrann, full heartily I pray you tell us part.”
“Gladly,” said he.
