I've decided I need to start publishing my books, every three months or so.
The Darkness You Fear came out in May, and Tuskers III is due out in October, so I have a window of opportunity around August 1.
So I'm going to put out Faerie Punk.
I had lots of fun writing this book. It's sort of uncategorizable. Lara, my editor called it an "urban fantasy/road trip/heroic quest/coming of age story."
It's also a big book. 140,000 words, or nearly 500 pages.
I had a neat cover made and its ready and it probably was never going to fit anywhere else, so it's a good choice.
So ready or not, world, here it comes!
Here's my synopsis so far:
"The genius half Elve, half Dwarve inventor Joseph Tindermaker left
his inheritance inside an unbreakable Vault, and only a true heir can
open it. Iggy Sinclair, a punk bounty hunter unaware of his heritage, is
approached for what seems to be a straightforward job; find Carter
Tindermaker, the missing son of the great inventor.
evil Ancient One, who was banished by the human One God ten thousand
years ago, has returned, infesting a human A.I. , intent on taking over
both mankind and Faerie.
As he makes his way from Oregon to New
York City, Iggy discovers that Faerie and Mortal Realms exist side by
side, with Pixies and Trolls and Ogres...Oh My!
The First Ones
emerge from their sleep, and all of Faerie must choose sides. It is up
to Iggy, along with his Changeling sister Kerrie, the half-Elve lawyer
Maggie Cleeves, and the Ogre Chuck to make their way across a magical
America to open the Vault and stop the Ancient One.
"American Gods," part "Wizard of Oz," part Kerouac, this an urban
fantasy road trip through the ancient and the modern. A story of coming
home to a place you never knew existed."
I'm Duncan McGeary, owner and/or operator for the last 33 years of Pegasus Books in Downtown Bend, Oregon. These days I'm writing books as well as selling them.
I'm the comic book guy. But even more so, I'm a book book guy. Books of all kinds. Big books and little books, children's and adult, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback and trade paperback and graphic novels. Books with more words than pictures and books with more pictures than words. They are all part of the book world to me, and I love being surrounded by them every day.
I also have a second blog: Pegasus Books, where I list the product coming in over the next week.
