I read this book and wrote this post in 2015. However, I love his books and so I will share it with you again. It is such an entertaining read and you should not miss it.
Today I introduce you to one of my favourite indie authors: Derek Haines. I stumbled over him via Twitter in days long gone and he was so kind to take part in one of my interview series. He is the reason why I own a Kindle as I love sci-fi and fantasy novels and his Glothic Tales series sounded great and it was just so much easier to get it online.
I am not sure if he would be very proud of this as he often has a close look at Amazon’s terms and conditions and practises which make the indie author’s life more difficult. On his blog that is. Forgive me, I am a bit confused lately due to some borderline iron deficiency but that’s another story.
Ok, what is it all about? In three books you meet three young men on adventures they never thought they would have to get into. They are a little on the lazy and not quite there side of things but in the end, they always get there. It is about the empire of Gloth, rulers of the 12 sun systems and how on earth a human pope could create a dynasty who took over that empire ;-).
I am reading book three which is called “Septimity” and the Glothians might have at last got their empire back. Who knows :-).
And here is my teaser:
” “Certainly not sir.”
“Very well. Let me check on the viability of this mission first but if it was to proceed, I think one of my senior Glothic High Command officers would need to be aboard.” “
