Forged In The Dawn Free Weekend

My novel Forged in the Dawn is currently free this weekend on Amazon Kindle. You can pick up your copy here.

“This is a different kind of post-apocalyptic story; character driven, well-paced and with a style of writing reminiscent of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. I can thoroughly recommend.”

“The author’s strong narrative prose paints a vivid image of the post-apocalyptic world he has created, and brings his characters to life in a way that pulls you into their trials and triumphs, and makes you feel their emotions keenly.”

“The book is fast paced, and the story is gripping – meaning it’s often a hard book to put down! A fantastic read, and highly recommended.”

I hope you enjoy the book, and if you give it a read then please feel free to leave an honest review on Amazon to let me know what you thought.

  1. Fantastic. And interesting reading your post on self publishing. I’ve been looking at partnership publishing too, which provides things like editorial and proof reading services, publicity etc without taking control. All at a cost of course, but is another consideration.
    I have to say, this all feels like what happened to the music industry in the 80s, long may it last.

    1. I haven’t heard of partnership publishing, I’ll have to read up on it. It is a freeing experience to be a writer these days, with the ability to get your work out to the world in so many different ways. I think putting power in the hands of the creators in any media is a positive thing.
