Locked Within - The Memory Chronicles

Postby Wordmaker » Wed Apr 27, 2011 2:10 pm

My debut novel, Locked Within (working title) will be published by WiDo Publishing in 2012!

The announcement was made on the blog of Karen Jones Gowan today:

http://karenjonesgowen.blogspot.com/201 ... er-of.html

Nathan Shepherd is a man haunted by dreams of past lives. Gifted with eidetic memory, he is drawn to patterns than others missed and finds himself obsessed with unusual occurrences and mysterious deaths. When he discovers a series of murders which have taken place over a hundred year period, he is certain they're connected. Searching for the truth, Nathan is drawn into the hidden supernatural world of New York, ruled over by a society of cruel immortals. In his quest to stop the killer once and for all, he learns more about his past and his true nature than he ever thought possible, but risks losing those closest to him along the way.

Hehe, well I did get a kick out of having The Wordverse show up on TV Tropes, but I think stats for Nathan Shepherd might even trump that!

That does happen, actually. There's just so much mystery to the forgotten places of a city like New York that I couldn't set my book there and not include them.

This is a fairly ancient thread to resurrect, and I'm sorry I haven't been around as much, but I wanted to let everyone know that the final version of Locked Within has been sent for copy edits. We're hoping for a release date in October or November this year.

A final release date will be announced probably around late September or so. Expect to see lots of news and information on my blog as I work on promotion for the big day.

I can now reveal the cover and blurb for Locked Within!

Image

The supernatural realm and the mundane world have existed side by side since the dawn of time. Predators walk the streets, hidden by our own ignorance. Once, the city of New York was protected, but that was another time.

Now a creature emerges from the city’s past to kill again, with no-one to hear the screams of its victims. The lost and the weak, crushed under the heels of the city’s supernatural masters, have given up hope.

But one man finds himself drawn to these deaths. Plagued by dreams of past lives, his obsession may cost him friends, loved ones, even his life. To stop this monster, he must unlock the strength he once had. He must remember the warrior he was, to become the hero he was born to be.

His name is Nathan Shepherd, and he remembers.

Locked Within is now available for pre-order on Amazon!

Go here to pre-order. It's only listed in paperback at the moment, but the Kindle edition will be coming.

I can confirm that the Kindle version will be available on Amazon.com in October, for a special introductory price of $1.99. If you prefer Kindle or want to get the book early, this is the perfect time!
