Good news! I am lowering the eBook price of my fantasy novel, The Sword and the Sorcerer!
The data I’ve been reading suggests readers are looking to pay between $2.99 and $3.99 for an eBook, especially on Amazon, so I’m dropping the price of SatS to $2.99. (The nice thing about being an indie author is being able to adapt quickly to trends.)
The only trouble with this move is that I was donating 20% of the sales of The Sword and the Sorcerer to Freedom to Marry to help them continue their fight for marriage equality nationwide. I initially set the price at $4.99, so I could donate a buck a sale.
I don’t want to reduce the reach of my ability to help. If I stick to the 20% number, that’ll cut down on what I’m donating per sale.
So I’ve decided to reduce my profit margin instead. I will continue to donate one dollar from the sale of every electronic copy of The Sword and the Sorcerer to Freedom to Marry. If you buy the print edition, I’ll donate two bucks.

He wanted his father’s love. What he got instead will change the world.
Gothemus Draco – world’s most powerful sorcerer – is dead. Locked away in his tower are the tools for total domination of every city-state in the Known World. The person who possesses them can become a king, and everyone, it seems, has a claim – his warlord brother, the fairy from whom he stole a powerful artifact, even the sorceress who murdered him.
But the man who shaped the balance of power through wizardry isn’t done playing games with world politics. Just because Gothemus is dead doesn’t mean he doesn’t still have plans. Against all understanding, his magic lives on after his demise, preventing anyone from breaking into the tower.
Meanwhile, he’s left a gift for his son Calibot – Wyrmblade. The legendary dragon sword makes its wielder nearly invincible, and Gothemus has enchanted it with all sorts of new abilities.
But Calibot wants nothing to do with Wyrmblade or his father. He’s a poet with a powerful patron, and he’s been estranged from his father for years. All he desires is a peaceful life of composing verse and to one day marry the man he loves – a former soldier and advisor to the duke.
He may have no choice, though. Gothemus decreed Calibot should retrieve his body and lay him to rest. All signs point to a mysterious destiny Gothemus designed that Calibot cannot avoid.
With only the aid of his true love and his father’s inept apprentice, Calibot must leave the safety of his life at court and venture to the stronghold of those who murdered Gothemus, retrieve the body, and return it to his tower. Everyone with a stake in the future of the Known World will try to stop him, and Calibot must take care he doesn’t lose his life . . . or his soul!
