Today we’ve got a special signal boost. An author I interviewed some time ago, L.J. Engelmeier, is releasing her first book soon (see her interview here: Tumblr & WordPress). It sounds like a fascinating read and she’s also offering a giveaway.
Here’s the information:
This is it, Oliver thought. This is how the world ends. In blood and darkness. To the call of a wolf.
In a world of unlimited dimensions, there are many dark crevices for evil to fester and hide.
The Infinity. Sea of Seas. A multiverse teeming with life and magic. Long have two species, humans and demons, subjugated one another within it, all while living beneath the might of hierarchies designed to protect them. Long have their masses worshipped elected deities—the Guardians—who serve the dimensions as saints, mercenaries, and officers of the law.
The Guardians are believed to be indomitable, but now, one by one, they’re being murdered.
When three of them turn up dead—eyes and hearts ripped out, seemingly by their own hands—seven very different people are thrust into the mystery surrounding their deaths, a mystery that spans from the icy mountains of Lutana all the way to the dunes of Khajal and to the slaughtered bay city of Lindennacht.
Any hope of uncovering the culprit behind the Guardian murders now rests with these seven people: a street-fighting princess, an illiterate ex-slave, a libertine potioneer, a reluctant heir, a former royal dancer, a clan’s queen, and a gunslinging spellcaster with nothing to lose.
Join the worlds of the Infinity in this 534-paged first novel of the “Death of the Multiverse Saga,” available May 30th on Amazon in paperback for $14.79 and on Kindle for $5.99. Preorder the eBook now, and enter the giveaway here!
L.J. Engelmeier, granddaughter of a mortician, grew up in a household where death was dinner table conversation. She knows a hilarious story about a homeless man’s head that lived in a bag in the funeral home’s garage. A runner-up for the 2016 SIU Carbondale Literary & Art Award in Poetry, a recipient of a Silver Honorable Mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest, and a shortlisted poet in the March 2017 Creative Writing Ink poetry contest, Engelmeier has published in Grassroots, Schlock! Webzine, Aphotic Realm, Whatever Our Souls, and is very excited to release her first novel “A Shard of Sea and Bone”!

I just want to give a quick shout and say thank you to everyone who has made and will make this book a success! It’s ten years in the making. I had a great time writing it over the last year, making its cover, and marketing it. It’s an adult dark fantasy inspired by writers like Clive Barker, George R.R. Martin, and Leigh Bardugo and hosts an array of orientations and POC. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
It sounds like a fantastic read. So go out there and pick up a copy, leave a nice review, show Engelmeier some love.
