What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of comic books actually. I'm a huge Batman fan and I try to read all the major graphic novels in the DCU. I've always read fantasy since reading The Hobbit in the fourth grade. I've always enjoyed reading fantasy to take my mind off things and enjoyment. Each time my daughters were born I've read fantasy books from my iPhone while waiting for them to be born.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I really love reading books on iBooks because I can switch back and forth from my iPhone and iPad with ease. I like how I can easily read without disturbing anyone else in the room. Recently I've discovered all the graphic novels on iBooks store and I've really enjoyed the wonderful detail on the iPad versions that just aren't as noticeable in print. It was really important to me to make sure that Dawn of Destruction was available on iBooks.
Hyaterra is a world much like ours was before the civilized world as we know it except with magic and wizards and helpful elves and amazing sword smiths. Now that the last great beast has been slain and the final horde of goblins and orcs have been shoved in a deep hole in the ground guard by the knights of Oshtex and Orichoro, the real monsters slither in the courts of Kings and the minds of powerful warlords. This is the world of Hyaterra.
This is the second book of tales from the world of Hyaterra. The eternal war between Sumrila and Vussaui rage on, the King Zephkletos leads his men to war against his barbaric neighbors based on freewill, and the sea dogs of Deruwa will encounter sea battle from the powerful kingdom of Gycrun as their leader Grandki sails back from the Council of Kings. This is the world of Hyaterra.
This is the first book of tales from the world of Hyaterra. Meet Grandki, a towns leader in Deruwa, as he tries to take the noble course and making sure his children have a better future. Will Deruwa be successful in their goal of freedom or will the rebels be defeated by the might of Gycrun? Will surrounding kingdoms watch the battle unfold or will they pick a side and fight?
