ANNOUNCEMENT/GIVEAWAY: Techromancy Scrolls: Avalon, by Erik Schubach

Techromancy Scrolls - Avalon

QSFer Erik Schubach has a new FF fantasy book out in his Techromancy Scrolls series: Avalon.

Almost three thousand years after an extinction level event on Earth, mankind seeks to regain its former glory, in a new world where magic and technology collide.

After Avalon’s tanks and guns lose a massive confrontation against the Knights and magic of Sparo, they finally agree to peace talks.

Laney and the other Templars are chosen to lead the peace envoy that travels to the mysterious land of the north, which has so much of the technology from the Great Wizards of the Before.

The mission is put in peril when they learn who leads the Avalonian peace envoy.

Overtures of peace, amazing discoveries, and duplicitous actions make this the most dangerous mission that Laney, Celeste, and their allies have ever embarked upon. Their actions will mean either the end of hostilities, saving countless thousands of lives on both sides, or the re-ignition of the war between the two lands.

Excerpt

His hooves pounding the stone carapace of the Uninhabitable Lands, sending sparks from his hooves as his great lungs worked like great bellows in the blacksmith forges of Wexbury. Goliath thundered past the front lines of the largest fighting force that Sparo had ever assembled, my gypsy hunting cloak billowing behind me, trailed by the misty afterimages of myself as my magiks seeped from my pores.

I rasped out from vocal cords damaged in what felt a lifetime ago, “Hold! They are but ranging shots! Do not break formation, we will not be cowed, we are Sparo!”

Explosions of stone, shrapnel, and dust swirled up in gouts of flame as the Avalonian guns rained down metallic projectiles. They believed themselves safe, five hundred yards on the other side of one of the serpents of fire which broke up parts of the barren rocky landscape of the Uninhabitable Lands. Out of the range of our catapults, ballistas, and trebuchets… and well out of archer range.

This fissure torn in the very Earth itself, with molten lava, the lifeblood that coursed through the planet’s core, flowing far below, was to be where we hoped the final battle against Avalon would occur. This war has been raging now for the past two years, and it was time to end it.

For weeks, the enemy’s mechanical monsters have been massing there, our airships tracking their progress from a safe distance, out of the range of their guns. A lesson learned the hard way, as we lost the Intrepid from New World to enemy fire. Avalon technology, while wasteful and dependent on consumption of many nonrenewable resources, was superior to that of Sparo.

They had used that superiority against other lands in the past, subjugating them while raping their lands of resources to power their war machines and their homeland’s industries. What they had not counted on, was coming up against an opponent who knew all too well just how to wage war. An opponent who could counter their technology with something they had never come across. The magic of the Altii of Sparo, and magiks of the Mountain Gypsies.

Author Bio:

I got my start writing novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two… two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

My writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm.

Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some “social norm”.
