Beyond the Gate Available Now

Only $1.99
Exactly one year after my former publisher was supposed to release Book #2 of my epic fantasy series, Beyond the Gate, I have made it happen.  Without going into the gruesome details of the severing of my relationship with said publisher, I reclaimed my rights to the series after they lapsed in their responsibilities to seeing my book was released on time.

As of today, I've reduced the price of the first book in The Futhark Chronicles, The Keepers of Sulbreth, to the bargain price of $1.99.  Of course, I'm hoping you'll love the first book so much, you'll have to hurry back to your favorite online digital retailer and buy the second book.
Available Now-$2.99

Beyond the Gate takes up just one moment after The Keepers of Sulbreth ends.  Marshal Cage Stone and Keeper Sabelline Shelton enter the mysterious cavern they must navigate to reset the magical seals preventing a demon invasion of the kingdom of Futhark.  King Jonared and the remaining Keepers and Marshals have more problems than demons to deal with as an ambitious lord decides he wants the throne of Futhark for his own.  Cage and Sabelline will find everything they thought they knew under question and only a great sacrifice by Cage and an act of courage by Sabelline might turn the battle in their favor.

So I hope you're looking for a new epic fantasy series to read or if you've already read The Keepers of Sulbreth, you're waiting for Beyond the Gate.

Congratulations for sticking with it! It's hard enough to write a novel without having to fight for publication rights. Wishing you success.

Congrats, Susan! Glad you were able to reclaim the rights and release it yourself. Those are such cool covers, btw.

My pleasure, Roland.
Thanks, Cate. My niece designed my covers.
And Jan, I do feel like I'm in a fight when I'm trying to promote.

I just finished reading The Keepers of Sulbreth and have been searching to find Beyond the Gate available in print. Is it available in paperback at all? I don't like reading books on a screen and love cuddling up with a real book rather than a computer screen.
I really enjoyed the The Keepers of Sulbreth and look forward to reading the rest of the series-in paperback. Could someone please direct me in finding a print version of Beyond the Gate? Thanks in advance.
