Ok I've been here for a couple of days, so I hope this isn't considered spamming since it IS Tolkien inspired.
I've recently self-published my debut novel online (January 3rd in fact). I've been working on it for seven years, and it all began back in 9th grade when I came across a copy of Lord of the Rings. I was astounded not just by the story but the appendices were so rich and detailed. As a history buff I can appreciate the detail put into any work, and I wanted more books like that. The challenge was having to write one.
This is a book written by a Tolkien fan, for Tolkien fans, and its something I wanted to bring to you all. I hope you enjoy it. You can read the first 20% free right here, at Smashwords. Take a look, tell me what you think. Thanks everyone!
