Wrap-Around Cover Reveal of Unfettered II

As some may know, the original Unfettered Anthology was written to help Shawn Speakman pay off a massive medical debt.

All the authors contributed stories for free (mine was "The Jester") and it took us almost no time  to erase more than $200,000 to get Shawn debt free. Now, as a way of giving back, Shawn has started a charity to dispense funds to authors who find themselves caught in similar financial straights. Once again I'm proud to join an amazing line up of authors with a book in what is sure to be an incredible anthology.

As for my own contribution it's a short based on my Legends of the First Empire series. It's a folk tale the demonizes Gronbach, a dwarf reviled through the centuries for his deceit and treachery. Gronbach is still known in the world of Elan even though thousands of years have passed since the origins of this tale. For those who are interested, they'll get to meet the legendary Gronback in person in my upcoming novel from Del Rey, Age of Swords (June 2017). I hope you'll consider pre-ordering Unfettered II. It's sure to be a fabulous collection. Here's the line up:
  • Foreword by Terry Brookss)
  • Jim Butcher (Dresden Files)
  • Rachel Caine
  • Sarah Beth Durst (The Queens of Renthia)
  • David Farland (Runelords)
  • Charlaine Harris
  • Mark Lawrence (Gunlaw)
  • Erin Lindsey (Bloodbound)
  • Seanan McGuire
  • Aidan Moher
  • Naomi Novik
  • Peter Orullian (Vault of Heaven)
  • J.A. Pitts
  • Anthony Ryan (Raven’s Shadow)
  • Brandon Sanderson (Stormlight Archive)
  • Scott Sigler
  • Shawn Speakman (Annwn Cycle)
  • Michael J. Sullivan (The Legends of the First Empire)
  • Django Wexler
  • Janny Wurts (Wars of Light and Shadow
  • Todd Lockwood (Cover Artist)
  • Don Maitz (Interior Illustrator)
You can learn more about origins of the cover at Unbound Worlds. And pre-order it from Grim Oak Press. Check it out and consider picking up a copy. You'll get some great stories, and authors in need will get some much needed cash infusion. A win-win for all I'm sure.
