Tenth Anniversary Guest Post & Giveaway by M. R. Mathias

Hey FBC fans, it’s me, M.R. Mathias. It’s been a while, but I am honored to be able to pop in, make an announcement or two, and give away some Fantastica audiobook bundles.

First to the announcement, this July will mark the 10th Anniversary of the, The Sword and the Dragon - The Wardstone Trilogy Book One. (Which is also nearing the 10th anniversary of its FBC review) To celebrate, and since over the decade the trilogy sold over a million individual Kindle copies, we reformatted the interiors of all three titles and slapped on these amazing new covers by Jason McIntyre.

If you are one of the many thousands of readers who enjoyed The Wardstone Trilogy in eBook, grab a set for your bookshelf. Or if you read The Sword and the Dragon, but not the rest of the trilogy, you should look at the reviews for books two and three. I wrote the whole thing back to back to back, knowing it was going to be a trilogy, and remain so. But I tried very hard to give each volume a fulfilling ending. Either way, now you can get the whole trilogy in these eye-catching paperbacks, or if you prefer eBook, The Complete Wardstone Trilogy (digital box set,) is now available via Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.

Now to the giveaway.

Fantastica, is a recently completed four book series. Right before Christmas, the audiobook narration to the four-book collection dropped, and we were left with a whole bunch of free audible audio codes to the individual titles. The narrator, Will Hahn, was kind enough to put together 15 (10 US, 5 UK) four code bundles, so each winner will be able to get all four titles in the series, from their respective Audible store.

I will leave it up to the fine folks at FBC to figure out who gets the prizes. Good Luck, and if you win, please take a moment to write an Audible or Amazon review.

*Note: In the unlikely event you don’t win, there is a huge free preview of book one, Taerak’s Void in Fantastica: The Complete Four Book Collection.

My newest project is a trilogy called Dragon Racers. It is a little different than my usual thing. More Steampunk or Gaslamp than traditional epic, but still with magic and dragons. (*grins and shrugs) Some of the story and characters are based on Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese Mythology, and all in all it’s hopefully worthy of the good reviews it has so far received.

On a personal note. I told you guys last year; my eyes are screen-fried, and I almost lost a foot to an infection brought on by diabetes. On top of that, I might have early onset Alzheimer’s, so you won’t see much more “new” material from me. I figure six completed series, five of which happen in the same world, is enough for one brain. I have self-published over three million words. I already have several hundred well defined characters living in my head. It isn’t easy keeping them quiet. Besides all of that, my wife was diagnosed with Breast Cancer right before Thanksgiving, and by the time this post is published, we will be well into her twenty weeks of Chemo.

Wish us luck in battle friends, and please keep reading (and listening) and sharing what you enjoy.

To enter to win, please send in your entries with the subject line "FANTASTICA" to FBCgiveaway@gmail.com and please also mention your country (USA/UK) in the body of the email. Contest will end on 29th February 12:01 PM.
