SHADOW MAGUS Kindle Scout Campaign
Last October I ran a Kindle Scout campaign for CITIZEN MAGUS, the first book in my Journals of Natta Magus series. While Kindle Press didn’t select the book for publication, I got a lot of great feedback and encouraging words from folks who nominated it. With that in mind, I’m running a campaign for book two in the series, SHADOW MAGUS.
The campaign works like this: Readers can nominate my book for a publishing deal with Kindle Press. If Kindle Press picks up my book, your nomination will earn you a free copy once they publish it. The more nominations I get, the better my chances for a deal and a free ebook for you.
Nominating is easy, quick, and a great way to support new authors (check out the other campaigns on the Scout site, too). Please see my campaign page for more details and an excerpt from the book.
Thanks in advance for your support!
From the book description:
Natta Magus is getting used to life in Augustan Rome. While it doesn’t have twenty-first century perks like baseball or coffee, at least his unique magical skills can help his Aventine Hill friends. But the Roman government has noticed his talents, and they call on him when a religious artifact from Rome’s ancient past is stolen. Natta discovers the thief is a magus as powerful as him, which should be impossible in this era. Unlike him, the magus wants Rome to die screaming. Play ball.

Check out my Codex Antonius series, a sci-fi/alt-history epic about a Roman Empire that spawned an interstellar civilization. The ebook version of book one, MUSES OF ROMA, is now available for $0.99 on Amazon Kindle.
