Hi all,

My horror/thriller DARK WATER: BEAMING SMILE is now out at Smashwords and Amazon. This is a novelette, around 8,100K words, so it's basically a long short story. I am thinking of making this one a series, and write several sequels to it. Why? Because I like the characters and I am very proud of it.

Check out this great press release from the publisher Hellfire Publishing.

Synopsis of Dark Water: Beaming Smile


Sarah should have left Montgomery County when she had the chance, but now it's too late. She is trapped on the rooftop of her family home which is almost completely submerged by dark flood waters. The air smells of a mixture of sewage and mold and it’s still raining. Alone with only her thoughts Sarah is mad she did not leave town years ago when she was right out of high school, before she became the one things she dreaded most; her mother.

Haunted by the reoccurrence of an eerie thumping sound, Sarah is startled when she discovers a large hairy animal, almost the size of a cow, brushing against the corner of her house. What is it? Where did it come from? What other horrors are hiding in the dark water?

Hope you read and enjoy it. Feel free to leave reviews on Amazon or Good Reads and email me.
 
Thanks!

Hi all,

I'm back! I was super busy this summer. My 2011 goal was to write 3 books and I am getting really close. One done. Two almost done. I was slowed down some this summer when I was working on editing BLOOD DIVIDED, book two in the Soul Born Saga... BUT I did just finish writing a new book that I started earlier this year. For those interested, it took roughly seven months, with some interruptions and the break to edit.

Regardless, I just completed it! So that moves my score up to 4 books written (3 of them are over 100K words). This new book I call a fanta-horro-thriller. It's set in the Viking Age. I just shipped it to my editor. I hope to shop it around later this winter.

But-yeah... I'm just coming up for a breath of air. I was like... man I need to check in with the Fantasy Faction forums. I miss reading them, replying to them and occasionally posting too! I need to start writing some new articles this month too.

I would ask, hey... what did I miss?... but luckily I kept up with the twitter remarks so I know the basics. :)

Hope all are well.

Hey all,

If you are a Fantasy Faction forum member and have a Kindle than I got a free copy of SOUL BORN for you. I will send 15 copies of Soul Born as gifts, one each to the first 15 people who PM me here on the forums. All you need to do is send me the email account I should gift the book to and I will send it out. I will probably be sending the gift copies tomorrow, so expect to see them then.

Thanks all!  Hope you enjoy the book. It was reviewed here by Marc! http://fantasy-faction.com/2011/soul-born-review

Small Press & Self-Published / May is SOUL BORN excerpt month
« on: May 30, 2011, 02:57:49 AM »
Hi all,

All month long I have been posting excerpts of my debut fantasy novel SOUL BORN on the www.soulborn.net site. Each Monday a new one. I am trying my best not to spoil the secrets in the book, while showing some exciting moments. I hope you all can check it out. There are also free sample chapters and a free e-book with an origins story.

Book two in the Soul Born Saga will be out this fall. Tent date is 10/31/11. Dan Dos Santos is painting the cover right now and he emailed me this week and called it "sexy". I cannot wait to see it. He and I brainstormed over it, and then WHAMMO he got an excellent idea.

At the moment you can pick up SOUL BORN for $0.99 on Kindle. In a few days I will be doing a give-away for signed hard copies, so watch for it on goodreads.com.

Thanks for all the support. I appreciate it. Being from a Small Press publisher means lots of extra work for the author, but it also means truly appreciating everyone involved and helping.

Thanks!

Hi all,

Since we are all waiting for the kindle version of my novel SOUL BORN to come out... I figured I would release this new e-story for FREE!  Its the origins of one of my main protagonists, Opal. If you have read SOUL BORN this will be a fun addition to learn more back-story of her. If you have not read SOUL BORN his will give you an idea of who this young mage is prior to the main story.  It will not spoil things. So no worries.



You can find it on any of my blogs or websites. So check out www.soulborn.net and download it. All you have to do is click the link for the .PDF file.

Read and enjoy!

I still love Final Fantasy Tactics above all esle... but Dragon Age: Origins was so much fun. I loved everything about that game and played it through twice, almost three times.

I really enjoyed Fable 2, while Fable 3 had some great aspects... but fell flat and was not as enjoyable as 2.

Small Press & Self-Published / SOUL BORN by Kevin James Breaux
« on: December 31, 2010, 07:04:55 AM »
Hi all,

I am author Kevin James Breaux. You may or may not know me. I have had lots of short stories published on the internet over the past few years. Most of them being about zombies or sex. And yes, one had both zombies and sex... but not sex with zombies cause thats plain wrong! I also have a short story in a anthology called DEAD HISTORY. My most recent news is my debut novel SOUL BORN. It was released 11/30/2010 by Dark Quest Books. Its an epic fantasy, but some people call it a dark fantasy too. I hope you all take a chance and read it. Anyone who reads it, please feel free to email me and ask me questions or give me any and all kinds of feedback. Thanks!



Back cover blurb:

All Opal wanted was to be respected as a wielder of magic, but her teachers passed her over time and time again. When a mysterious warlord embarks on a conquest to destroy the lands of Illyia Opal seizes an opportunity to step out from the shadows of her instructors and take her rightful spot among them.

Tala, an alluring young elf, was banished from her tribe, hunted and nearly killed by the beasts that dwell in the deep forests, but more than anything else she is a survivor. Joining forces with an ancient elemental power Tala finds herself in the center of an unrelenting human war.

Flesh like leather and bone as strong as steel Karn, a veteran from the first kingdom to fall, is fueled by vengeance. While pushing ever headlong into battle Karn begins to recall memories of another life; ghosts that haunt his dreams.

Through death of soul, their world is born.


 "Kevin Breaux has a unique style: bold, funny, aggressive and dynamic. SOUL BORN is a rollicking high fantasy adventure!" --NY Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry, author of The King of Plagues and Rot & Ruin.
