The first twenty-five pages of Northern Knights, Book I in my Lord of Columbia Series is now available on Prolific Works for those on the fence of purchasing the book and other works in the series.
Are You In?
This idea is kind of like playing poker, in a sense, as you can test drive the first chapter and a half for free before deciding whether you’re in, or you’re out.
Unlike many works, Northern Knights and my entire series for that matter deals with some controversial issues, many of which are highlighted within the first twenty-five pages, which will give readers an idea on where the book is headed over the course of 387 pages.
This book highlights what a Libertarian society looks like compared to a dystopian society, the latter of which is where the story begins before embarking to the main Libertarian setting.
With anything political, red-flag trigger warnings erupt here as the comparisons begin almost off the bat in the first scene, where our main supporting character, Lira, warns the reckless intent main character, Cain, about using his supernatural abilities in public, as law enforcement will arrest those who utilize such ability even as an activity of daily living.
What do we see in the dystopian realm of the society known as South Columbia?
We see an overreaching military-industrial complex, whose bill for fighting endless, perpetual, and unwinnable wars overseas is paid for by the people of South Columbia, many of whom are already living paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet.
We see never-ending military interventionist propaganda on news outlets where if one fails to support such propaganda, they’re branded a traitor to the imperial crown and are likely thrown into either prison or worse, a concentration camp.
Private ownership of weaponry, supernatural or not, is banned, as I highlighted earlier to a short extent.
Fiat currency prone to inflation is required use among all citizens, with competition currencies being outlawed.
And of course, it’s here in this dystopian state where the action really begins.
There is graphic violence involved and a lot of suggestive language, again highlighted within these first twenty-five pages, in which the reader can decide right there whether they wish to buy the work and continue reading.
Dare to Download?
Right now, I have the work available in ePub and PDF formats, so feel free to download this new adult urban fantasy. The work mainly targets the later high-school, college, and new adult (ages 18-30) audience, but those older than 30 have read and enjoyed the work as well, so don’t feel left out if you’re not in this age range.
Again, we’re talking about controversial topics here, and there is a revolt going on as well and I’m not shy about going into detail within the pages of this text.
If you read the free sample and enjoy it, feel free to proceed to the next step in purchasing the work in full and embark on a new and exciting Lord of Columbia Series.
Email Subscription Update
Okay, so I wrote an article about a month ago urging readers to sign up for my email list and the first 200 will receive those free gifts in December 2020. Again, that’s December 2020, not 2019. And all I ask for are reviews.
For those who haven’t signed up yet, unfortunately, I have reached the 200 subscriber threshold, but don’t worry, you will still receive access to deleted scenes from Northern Knights, Swords of Destiny, Missing in Columbia, and other works as well as a few shorter stories here and there, perhaps even including my very first novel that I never published and to be honest, is quite terrible, but it will show how far I came as a writer since 2014-2015.
