I need a big favor

Writers always are asking favors of their readers. I'm no exception. To anyone who has purchased any of Books 1-4 on Amazon, would you please leave a reader comment, if you haven't already? This adds a ton to credibility.

Be honest -- in both directions. If you love it, please say so. If you see flaws, feel free to expose them.

Karma is a powerful force. Doing good things for people pays dividends. This would be a good thing ... a very good thing ... for me.

No problem, Jim. Soon as finish Moon Goddess I'll go back and leave a comment. I guess I could leave a comment about The Pit as well, can't I, even though I didn't actually buy it?

Jim Melvin said...

I'm not sure. I think you need to have bought it, but you could try. Regardless, thanks much for leaving one for Moon Goddess! That'd be awesome.

I will too. My parents are bringing "The Pit" with them when they arrive tomorrow. I'm a slow reader but I'll be there!

Jim Melvin said...

Awesome! I'll be very interested to hear what you have to say about it.

Michael said...

For The Pit: Done. I hope you don't mind that I just pulled a couple sentences from the ToL review.

Jim Melvin said...

Thanks, Michael! I saw your comment and also sent you a private email.


The Death Wizard Chronicles is a sexy, action-packed six-book epic fantasy series: Book One (Forged by Death), Book Two (Chained by Fear), Book Three (Eve of War), Book Four (World on Fire), Book Five (Sun God), Book Six (Death-Know).

The DW Chronicles is not for children and teenagers -- or the faint of heart. But if you like graphic fantasy that is bursting with excitement yet still has a lot going on between the lines, I think you'll love my series.

In a groundbreaking paradox, the Death Wizard, a champion of good, derives his power from a source traditionally seen as negative -- death. His nemesis, an evil sorcerer, derives his power from the sun, the benevolent source of all life. Their struggle to control the fate of the planet Triken will take your breath away.

In an original twist never before seen in this genre, the Death Wizard is able to enter the realm of death during a "temporary suicide." Through intense concentration, he stops his heartbeat and feeds on death energy, which provides him with an array of magical powers.

The series also is a love triangle involving two desperate characters attempting to come together despite the machinations of an all-powerful psychopath with incestuous cravings.

Graphic and action-packed, spanning a millennium of turmoil, The DW Chronicles carries readers on a journey they will never forget.

Do you fear death? The Death Wizard does not. Find out why.
