-Danger in the Darkness book cover- by Silvolf -Danger in the Darkness book cover- by Silvolf
My fantasy novel is now available to buy! I'm so happy I can finally show everyone the characters from the book that has been a long time in the making.
So here is the front cover. Having this book published has been a dream of mine and feeling discouraged with traditional publishing methods (agents, publishers, a lot of whome overlook first time authors) I discovered that self publishing is actually a good idea. You have more control over your work and still get to release it on a variety of sites around the net and can even sell it in bookstores as well. So I did it through Lulu, formatted the book myself and made the wrap around cover image by myself too (the wizard on their site didn't have the layout I wanted).
I created many of the characters back in 2001, it's been so hard trying to keep characters I love so much a secret. I'm working on a second book now, and it won't take as long lol! I already have the story mapped out and a lot of character concepts finished. And it will be awesome.

So, Danger in the Darkness, book 1 of the Gryphie Saga. What's it about? Well have a read of the back cover synopsis :D

In another world, war is coming due to a foolish mistake that was made a long time ago. Diabloss, the strongest fighter of the Gryphies works to keep his gathering safe against the Lizariaouses, however, with a rogue Gryphie on the loose who is making things worse, the job of his team is getting harder.
His mate Leida, having been captured and making a narrow escape learns that in order to survive, she must stop running and train to fight as well. However, in a world full of friction and betrayal, will the Gryphies win the war or fall victim to the control of Zephirak, leader of the Lizariaouses?

There is a fine line between good and bad. And the war is only just beginning.


It can be found on a range of sites such as Amazon worldwide and Barnes & Nobel.

Lol! It would be funny in a movie trailer style voice :D I think it's important to do a blurb on the back of the book that will make people want to pick it up and read it.

i will make sure to get my own copy of your book, your work is awesome, actually you are my second favorite deviantartist (the first one is silverdeni, i like antropomorphic animals and her style is pretty cool, the only bad thing about her is that she dosen't reply comments to all people) but i have to say you are my main inspirention to draw again (i use to draw all the time but for some moment at high school i leave it) because you don't use tablets or computer softwares, you use pencil, paper and colors that i can buy at a office max, you are so freaking cool =)

Aww that's an honour, I'm glad I inspire you! Indeed, you don't even need expensive pencils to draw nicely. I just use Crayolas.
