New Legends of Agora pre-order!

             Sea Queen: The windwalker Archive Book #2

Amazon has finally allowed us lowly Indie Authors to set up pre-orders for our books. This may seem like no big deal to most people (in truth, a lot of people I talk to never use Amazon or Kindle), but it is hot shyte for me. Before, only the big names were allowed to set up pre-orders, and therefore, they could plop their bloated arses in the Hot New Release categories on Amazon for months and months, while we could only hold a spot there for one month. Well, now all that has changed. I have released Afterworld, Book 1 of the Orion Rezner Chronicles, due to release October 31, 2014, and Sea Queen, Book 2 in the Windwalker Archive, due to release December 1, 2014,  for pre-orders to take advantage of the extended exposure time on these lists.
Like the old adage goes, 'vote with your dollars'.
You may have read the letter to readers at the end of my books. In it, I explain that I am a self-published author, and do not have the luxury of a team of promoters at my disposal. You are my team. I am David fighting a Galiath, and you, ladies and gentlemen, are my slingshot. If you plan on buying Afterworld or Sea Queen when they come out, I ask you to do so now. With enough pre-orders we can really make a splash in the rankings, and turn even more people on to the Legends of Agora books. That means more time to write for me, and more books for you.
So without further ado, I give you Sea Queen, and Afterworld. I hope you enjoy.
After a lifetime of abuse at the hands of the murderous Vald, Talon Windwalker is finally free. He sets out across the sea in search of Akkeri, with his spirit wolf Chief at his side.
Talon may have escaped the injustices of the barbarian island, but he cannot escape what he is—a Skomm runaway. Hunted, he must thwart his pursuers while searching for his lost love.
After joining up with a group of fellow runaways wanted for killing their master’s guard, Talon discovers clues to Akkeri’s whereabouts. His quest leads him across the foreign landscape of Agora, and onto a slave ship holding hundreds of his fellow Skomm.
With Chief at his side, and the elven ring Kyrr, Talon finally has the power to destroy his oppressors. But power comes at great cost. The lure of his magical trinkets gains him the attention of those who would take it for themselves. He begins to realize that with such power, he has a responsibility to help his oppressed people. However, in doing so, he may lose the only lead he has to finding Akkeri.
Talon Windwalker wants only a quiet life—if only he could escape the shadow of his own legend. 

Seven years have passed since the Culling of 2033 which killed most of the world's population. Vampires, werewolves, and demons have begun to emerge from the shadows, and they are hungry. Boston, one of the last vestiges of humanity, is protected by a spell shield created by the Wizard Council. The shield is the only thing keeping the city safe.

Having studied the Craft for two years at Harvard Witchcraft and Wizardry, Orion Rezner embarks on his final rite of passage. But his first mission outside the city walls forces him to make choices he wasn’t prepared for. Narrowly avoiding possession by an ancient demon, he learns of a plot to destroy the spell shield and expose its survivors to the horrors outside.

Suspected by the wizard council of having been compromised by the encounter, Orion is unable to convince them of the danger. With the help of his closest friends and ghostly mentor, Orion sets out on a desperate quest to thwart the demon's plan any way he can--before it's too late to save the city.
