New Tour Host Sign-ups: Virtual Book Tour: MAJRA by J. Simon

“In distant Sa'bahr, divinely inspired lunatics spend their lives inscribing every story ever told upon the backs of giant tortoises. The tortoises spend their lives weeping, for they cannot read the wondrous tales written upon their own backs...”

Aris has managed to live a quiet life, even in a stark desert land of glorious tales and beautiful lies, crazed artists and mad hermits. So what if he has a knack for tales? A mere messenger can't change the world. Mighty great works he'll leave to mighty great men.

Now the soldiers of Majra have come to 
 pacify his “savage” people.
 Few dare stand against them. Certainly Aris never meant to. Taking work with the inavders was a way to help his family, not gain insights into the alien ways of their singular truth.

Beset by beguiling widows and vengeful plutocrats, firebrand Sheyks and 
sword-tongued maidens, the choices Aris faces could save his land—or break it.

Join The Tour:


The Virtual Book Tour for MAJRA by J. Simon is now accepting tour hosts.

The Book tour will take place Monday – Friday, 2/24/14 – 2/28/14.

If you are interested in participating in this tour, please fill out this form--> Sign-ups.

J Simon is a small blue bird who has been published in magazines and anthologies ranging from Baen's Universe to Writers of the Future.

 This surely indicates a lapse by the Guardians of Taste, and inquiries are being made.  

There is also a very small chance that nuclear test fallout has transformed J Simon into a gigantic nuclear starfish poised to attack Tokyo, but these reports have yet to be confirmed.

Spotlight: I, WALTER by Mike Hartner [Book Trailer + Giveaway] @MHartnerAuthor @K8Tilton


I, Walter

I, Walter is an historical adventure that follows Walter Crofter from his beginnings in London, to his end in Northern Spain. 

In a country and a time where favor and politics were both deadly, can an honest boy stay true to himself? 

Especially given his family background? 

I, Walter is the first in a series of books in a saga which will span continents and time to arrive in present day North America. 

Each in the series will be connected, though that connection may not be obvious for several more books.

 It's almost like looking at a menorah (sic)... Many lines, seemingly individual, connect to center at different points.

Mike Hartner

Mike Hartner was born in Miami in 1965. He’s traveled much of the continental United States. He has several years’ post-secondary education, and experience teaching and tutoring young adults.

Hartner has owned and run a computer firm for more than twenty-five years.

 He now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with his wife and child. They share the neighborhood and their son with his maternal grandparents.
