Are you ready to receive the awesome sneak peek at the sequel to Hero, Second Class by Mitchell Bonds?
It's available Monday, June 8.
This 10,500-word excerpt,
"The Istaka Passage,"
was originally part of Hero, Second Class but had to be cut because the book was running too long. So it's a deleted scene--a deleted subplot, actually.
Sir Reginald encounters a tribe of wolf-humanoids and a wimpy male Istaka who longs to win the heart and hand of his beloved. It's a great side story for our hero's mentor.
But now Mitchell Bonds has reworked it to fit in his yet-to-be-announced sequel, the second book in The Hero Complex. So it's also a first look at an upcoming Marcher Lord Press release.
And all you have to do to get your free copy of "The Istaka Passage" is purchase any Marcher Lord Press product on Monday, June 8, 2009.
You can buy a book or a T-shirt, a Kindle version of MLP novels or a craft book on how to write your own novel, an e-book or a virtual art gallery or a short history of marcher lords.
Purchase any Marcher Lord Press product--from the MLP store or from Amazon--and you'll get a link to download "The Istaka Passage" for free. (It's a Word file.)
[Note that if you purchase from the Marcher Lord Press store you don't have to do anything else to receive your free download. MLP staff will see your order and send your link. However, if you purchase from Amazon, you'll need to forward your Amazon receipt e-mail (having removed any credit card information) to Marcher Lord Press so we can see that you bought the item(s) on June 8.]
Mark your calendar!
The fun happens Monday.
