THREE REALMS: 3 Book Fantasy Boxset for the Bargain Price of 99c – save 90% off RRP!



I’m excited to announce the release of this boxset by Evolved Publishing, on sale for a limited time for 99c. 

The set is a collaboration between myself and fellow fantasy authors Michael Dadich and Dionne Lister and includes:


  • THE SILVER SPHERE by Michael Dadich;
  • CONFRONTING THE DEMON by Ciara Ballintyne; and
  • SHADOWS OF THE REALM by Dionne Lister.

Buying all these books separately would normally cost you $9.97 – how can you say no to 99c? Buy it now from Apple iBooks or Smashwords!

About the Boxset:


THE SILVER SPHERE by Michael Dadich (Multiple Award-Winner)

Shelby Pardow never imagined she could kill someone. All she wants to do is hide from her troubled father... when she is teleported to awaiting soldiers on the planet Azimuth. Here she is not a child, but Kin to one of the six Aulic Assembly members whom Malefic Cacoethes has drugged and imprisoned. He seeks to become dictator of this world (and then Earth by proxy).

His father, Biskara, is an evil celestial entity, tracked by the Assembly with an armillary device, The Silver Sphere. With the Assembly now deposed, Biskara directs Malefic and the Nightlanders to their strategic targets. Unless....

Can Shelby find the other Kin, and develop courage and combat skills? Can the Kin reassemble in time to release or replace the Assembly, overthrowing Malefic and restraining Biskara?

CONFRONTING THE DEMON by Ciara Ballintyne

The powerful wizard, Alloran, lurks in the stinking muck of the back alleys of the city of Ehsan. Posing as a common labourer, he struggles to hide from his lover, his best friend, the authorities – and his past.

But beneath the garbage of the backstreets he discovers a new horror: a trail of gruesome bodies, gnawed on by demons, and left gift-wrapped for him to find. Someone is brutally murdering people from his past, and threatening to finish with his lover, Gisayne. What dark secret from Alloran's youth cripples his ability to fight back?

In a world where hellcats stalk the shadows, and a flaming demon lays waste to the citadel of the wizards, Alloran must risk losing himself to a powerful addiction, or abandon Gisayne to hell.

SHADOWS OF THE REALM by Dionne Lister

Bronwyn and Blayke are two strangers being drawn into the same war. Their world is facing invasion from the Third Realm. While they move unknowingly toward each other, they are watched, hunted, and sabotaged. When the Dragon God interferes, it seems their world, Talia, will succumb to the threat. Can they learn enough of the tricks of the Realms before it’s too late, or will everything they love be destroyed?

The young Realmists’ journey pushes them away from all they’ve known, to walk in the shadows toward Vellonia, city of the dragons, where an even darker shadow awaits.

Monday Morsel: Reality Unravelling - An Excerpt from Stalking the Demon


Alloran led the way into the stairwell and down, summoning a globe of light to illuminate the way. Halfway down, the steps stopped as if they had never been. Alloran cast the light into the depths and peered down. The edges of the break were clean. These stairs had just vanished.

They backtracked to the last level, and wound their way along the halls. An eerie silence blanketed the citadel, and Dek glanced uneasily at each door and corridor they passed. Alloran’s neck prickled. 


The ruin wrought by the planar quake lay at every turn–floors broken and shattered, segments of walls missing or misaligned, smashed stones and collapsed ceilings. Almost it was like walking through the ruins of the square after the first-circle demon, but without the bodies.

Don't forget, Monday Morsels come from a draft that is pre-editing and as such won't be perfect. If you like what you read, and are so inclined, show your support by leaving a comment. Stalking the Demon is expected to be released 31 October 2014. If you'd like to sample more of my writing, check out the free short stories available on this site.

More about Stalking the Demon:


Alloran lost his hand to thwart his renegade friend–but the world is still going to hell.

Six months after Ladanyon's defeat, Gisayne is fading away from a baffling illness. Alloran is desperate for a cure, but he has a secret–the seven circles of hell are unstable. His worst fear is that the terrible mirror spell cast upon Gisayne has wrought some connection between her and the demon dimensions.

As everything Alloran loves races toward destruction, he does the unthinkable and refuses to obey the council of wizards. The only people who can help him are the two research assistants assigned by the council–but he knows he can't trust them.

All the answers are locked away in the last place anyone wants to go: hell.
