I’m on a Blog Tour! I forgot about it! Let me remind you, and entertain you …

Mogollon: A Tale of Mysticism & Mayhem (Bloodsong 2)

Holy macaroni! I’ve been on a blog tour for most of this month and forgot to let anyone know about it. Let’s fix that.

Book being toured is Mogollon: A Tale of Mysticism & Mayhem. Mogollon tells the story of the richest man in the world meeting a great (maybe the greatest) Native American shaman. It’s book 2 of the Bloodsong Series and rocks. One reviewer (who gave it 5 stars) said: “This book is equal parts horror, spiritual, romance, and action. From page one, it is non-stop, a page turner that leaves you on the edge of your seat, seeing where it’s going next. It follows not just Will on his journey, but many connections develop as Will and his team begin becoming inseparably linked with several of the Native American warriors and attendees. Nathan does an amazing job depicting the cultural and spiritual aspects of the story in a very respectful way, which as a reader, I really respected. I also just loved her turn of phrase, and many times I just said, “YES!” out loud at the great way she chose to describe something that otherwise could be mundane, or has been described the same way for centuries. Nathan has a voice all her own and it’s powerful.”

That get’s the gist of it. The blog tour. Here are links to my tour stops, showing you can forget the battle, but still post the war. Or something like that.

Here’s the whole tour, with links to blog posts, many of which are done. Finished. I’ll put links to those below and fill in the ones that have yet to be posted.

Let’s Hear it for Lady Grace – One Five Star Review You’ll Never Forget

Lady Grace & the War for a New World

How do some books get noticed and end up on supermarket shelves while other books–just as good or better–find themselves languishing in the backwater? It’s a mystery to me. The other day, I looked at my reviews for Lady Grace & the War for a New World. Lady Grace is one of three books in the Earth’s End Trilogy, my highly original, dystopian (happens after nuclear Armageddon) thriller/romance/extraterrestrial-ridden series. The Trilogy has won seven national awards–the Gold Medal in Visionary Fiction from the  huge and prestigious  IPPY Awards among them. The books have gotten close to five star ratings on Amazon. And yet, they’re unknown.

I aim to fix that right now. I looked at my reviews and found this:

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern sci-fi masterpiece April 2, 2014
By J. Chambers HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
JIM CHAMBERS IS THE #2 REVIEWER ON ALL OF AMAZON!
This is what Jim says about Lady Grace:
“After reading The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy, I had to wait almost a year for Lady Grace, the sequel, to be published. It was worth the wait. As much as I enjoyed the freshness and originality of the first book, Lady Grace was even better. When the story began, hundreds of years have passed since the earth was devastated by a nuclear conflagration. Jeremy and Ellie and their friends have been transported back to Earth, near the bunker beneath the now destroyed Edgarton manor. Jeremy’s mom, Veronica Edgarton, has been reunited with Jeremy. The descendents of village chief Sam Baahuhd have survived and proliferated in the bunker, but at a terrible price – many have mutated into monsters who terrorized and tortured their kinsmen.

“That’s the setting for the story. Sam Baahuhd had been dead for centuries, but one of his descendents, also called Sam, had all of the original Sam’s good qualities. When Sam was rescued by Jeremy and the others, he met Veronica, which was the beginning of a poignant love story set amidst the turmoil as the small band of survivors made their plans to attack the bunker and save Sam’s unmutated kinfolk. Jeremy and Ellie were still deeply in love, but Jeremy and the others had no inkling of the dramatic changes that Ellie would soon undergo.

“Lady Grace was first-rate science fiction and one of the most absorbing page-turners of that genre that I’ve read in years. Author Sandy Nathan exhibits the imagination of Ray Bradbury combined with the whimsicalness of Douglas Adams. That’s high praise, but it’s warranted. The story includes so much action; tense, suspenseful drama; and two charming love stories that it’s irresistible.

“Lady Grace is the second book in a proposed series. Enough backstory is included that Lady Grace could be read as a standalone book, but I recommend reading The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy first to get familiar with the story and the characters, especially Eliana (Ellie), an angel-like alien from another world.”

YOWSER! People wait a lifetime for a review like that from anyone, much less the Number Two reviewer on Amazon!

You can get the eBook dirt cheap on Amazon, but I’ll be working on more promotions in the near future. Bring the Lady out of the shadows! Shoot, check out the entire Trilogy!

Cheers and happy reading!
Sandy Nathan
The cover to the Trilogy is below. Get all three books at once: close to a thousand pages of fascinating adventure. Romance. Danger. Stuff so scary you won’t sleep for months. Funny! Let me tell you about funny. And spiritual.

Earth's End Trilogy

Wa-hoo! Mogollon: A Tale of Mysticism & Mayhem Is on eBookSoda Today!

Here’s the book’s beautiful cover, made more beautiful by the radiant fellow on the horse, Rick Mora. Rick is a famous Native American actor and model, the embodiment of one of Mogollon’s characters. Which one? You’ll have to read Mogollon to find out.

Mogollon: A Tale of Mysticism & Mayhem

You can find Mogollon on the US Amazon site or on the UK site. Same thrilling adventure in either place.

What are reviewers saying  about Mogollon?

“Mogollon is a very intense story that follows Will Duane and his employees on a spiritual retreat, unlike any other. This book is equal parts horror, spiritual, romance, and action. From page one, it is non-stop, a page turner that leaves you on the edge of your seat, seeing where it’s going next. It follows not just Will on his journey, but many connections develop as Will and his team begin becoming inseparably linked with several of the Native American warriors and attendees. Nathan does an amazing job depicting the cultural and spiritual aspects of the story in a very respectful way, which as a reader, I really respected. I also just loved her turn of phrase, and many times I just said, “YES!” out loud at the great way she chose to describe something that otherwise could be mundane, or has been described the same way for centuries. Nathan has a voice all her own and it’s powerful.”

From the US listing of Mogollon. Almost all of my reviews are on the US site . . . UK reviewers?

I’ll have more to say later; this is my day in the Big City. Will report my experience of eBookSoda.

Ciao!
