“The best of fantasy and science fiction is not about escapism, but challenges us to look at ourselves, our society, and reexamine our beliefs. This world and this author do just that, not heavy-handedly, but with elegance – it creeps up on you. I like that.” – From the Introduction by Damon Stone
With DEAD WEIGHT: The Tombs out across all major markets, I’m gearing up for a blog tour. This is my first blog tour. Since pretty much everything about about DEAD WEIGHT is experimental, I figure it’s time for my first real blog tour. I’ve reached out to some of my writer pals and some cool sites to have me stop by. Starting on the 12th and going through to the end of the month, I’ll be posting about DEAD WEIGHT, writing, and just the occasional random stuff. Some of my tour hosts have asked me to touch on specific things, and they’re going to be some pretty cool stuff. However, Some of my hosts have given me free reign to post about whatever I like. If any of you have something they’d like me to talk about, please post your ideas/questions in the comments.
Here’s some of the chatter on Amazon about DEAD WEIGHT: The Tombs:
- “The story was immediately engrossing, the characters were incredible, and the pacing flawless.”
- “Gallowglas has always been an excellent storyteller, and is well on his way to becoming a master of his craft.”
- “This was one of the most original, exciting things I’ve read in some time. The world building is superlative. The action is gripping and the main character manages to be deeply sympathetic despite being presented as deeply flawed.”
