If you’ve read my “Cautionary Tales for Writers” over on the left hand page of this blog, you know a bit of history about my early forays into writing and publishing.
The first novel I published was an epic fantasy called The Ivory Star, back in 1997. For almost twenty years, it languished on my hard drive, untouched. Then Wattpad came along, and it seemed like the perfect venue to introduce my early work to a new generation of readers. So I commissioned a snazzy new cover and put the book out there to see what would happen.
Lo and behold, The Ivory Star is featured on Wattpad this week! As hundreds of new readers fly through the chapters, leave comments, and vote on chapters they like, I have found it gratifying in ways I didn’t expect.
You can read the entire book for free right here. Enjoy this bit of fantasy adventure from my distant literary past.
