COVER REVEAL: Tribute at the Gates: Catalyst Book 1 by C.J. Aaron

Cursed from birth. Forced into slavery. It’s time to fight back.

The blood of the Ancients is the most coveted ingredient in all of Damaris. The fabled elixir made from it grants those who drink it life that extends far beyond natural means.

There is no higher honor in the kingdom then being granted the privilege of bidding for it. And the people found with the cursed blood? By law, they are the rightful property of the kingdom.

They are tributes.

As a boy, Ryl was sold by his family when he was discovered to have the coveted blood flowing through his veins. Broken, scared, and confused, he’s confined to an area known as the Stocks until he is ready for harvesting.

Ryl stumbles through a doomed life until the appearance of a mysterious stranger who exposes a buried version of the past that changes everything. That his blood may not be a curse, but a blessing.The fates of all the tributes hang in the balance.

Experience the start of a debut Epic Fantasy Series filled with unexpected heroes, dark magic, and non-stop adventure. Suitable for all ages, it’s perfect for fans of D.K. Holmberg, Will Wight, and K.F. Breene.

Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.

This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in between, expect to find the best and brightest authors from all the various corners of the fantasy book world. Plus we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.

Kicking off things this week, I’m still hard at work finishing up the editing for Huntress Defender, book 6 in the Huntress Clan Saga. I’m excited to wrap that one up because I can’t wait to start on my next book, The Paramedic’s Amazon. It’s book 8 in the Extreme Medical Services Series about paramedics who treat supernatural creatures. I love getting back to this series after not writing any books here for over a year.

If you haven’t read any of these books recently, make sure you check out book 1, Extreme Medical Services.

I’m also excited about the release of the first audiobook in the Huntress Clan Saga series, narrated by the awesome Marnye Young. You can get Huntress Initiate now in audio and experience the story in a completely different way all over again.

I was honored when Mel reached out to me to read portions of the book ahead of time to vet the medical information used by the main character who is a paramedic student. The book is awesome so make sure you check it out.

Here’s my interview with Mel.

This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 117 with Marnye Young .

Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.

This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in between, expect to find the best and brightest authors from all the various corners of the fantasy book world. Plus we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.

Starting off with my update. I just started the edits for Huntress Defender, Book 6 in the Huntress Clan Saga. I hope to have that in to my editor by the end of June. That’s good, because I can then focus on Huntress Adept which is scheduled for release on July 8th and I’m excited to get it out and into your hands. Our heroine, Quinn Faust, has to dig deep to find her way out of trouble this time around.

I’m also excited about the release of the first audiobook in the series, narrated by the awesome Marnye Young. You can get Huntress Initiate now in audio and experience the story in a completely different way all over again.

In this episode I get to chat with audiobook narrator and voice actress, Marnye Young. She is the voice behind the audiobooks for my Huntress Clan Saga, including the recently released Huntress Initiate audiobook.

Marnye is a multi award-winning narrator for New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling authors and the owner of Audio Sorceress audiobook production company. A SAG-AFTRA voice, stage, and screen actor, she has spent her life in the South, Midwest, and North.

Having performed across the globe and sometimes referred to as an “accent guru”, she has been praised for her impeccable comic timing as well as her ability to make you cry. When she isn’t narrating, she’s acting, fishing, raising chickens, and of course “mom”ing.

Check out my interview with Marnye coming up next. And, check out her recent audiobooks, Huntress Initiate, book 1 in the Huntress Clan Saga, and Fir Lodge, book 1 in the Restarter Series, by Sean McMahon.

Okay, time to delve into this week’s featured author. This week we have Allan Batchelder back on the show. For those who didn’t catch his original episode last year on the show, Allan is a professional actor, educator, writer and former stand-up comedian.

During his years on stage, he’s gotten to participate in countless battles – some even with other people – involving longswords, rapiers, daggers, staves, pistols, bottles, loaves of French bread and, of course, his grimy little fists.

Allan is a lifelong fan of epic fantasy and horror, so you can just imagine how much he loves Grimdark. He’s currently working on the fifth and final book in his series, Immortal Treachery, before he tries his hand at a) steampunk and b) horror.

Let’s get into my chat with Allan and see what he’s been up to in the last year. And pick up his Immortal Treachery Series.
