Indigo Inquest -- Dragon's Bane Series: Book 4 by Azriel Johnson



$20.00 USD
Novel
(plus Free PDF)

Coming Soon
Coming Soon
Present
Kingsley is on the hunt for revenge. An Inquest of epic proportions. His mission must be fulfilled by any means necessary, using countless unsavory characters and methods that make even the most tyrannical combatants shy away in disgust.

Past
Plato struggles with the duality of being a man who can hear the thoughts of Dragons & Humans alike. He finds & loses love, he embraces & shuns connection, he resists & accepts the darker parts of himself.

All for one goal...


About the author: 
Azriel Johnson is an inkspatter analyst by day and a serial writer by night.

Currently he can be found teaching English in China if you’re looking hard enough.

He also is attempting to learn Chinese, but it is still poor. He admires his students for trying to learn English as he thinks speaking English is much more difficult than speaking Chinese, although the written characters trip him up.  His goal is to be bi-lingual by the time he leaves, even if he is still functionally illiterate in Chinese.

Birthday Chapbook Contest -- Shortlist!!

Theydies and Gentlethems!

At long last we have the shortlist announcements ready for the Birthday Chapbook Contest.

As you know, we had originally set forth 5 categories for judgment, but unfortunately only three categories were submitted for with more than 1 competitor, those being Men, Women and Mental Illness.  Further unfortunates came when one of the two submissions for Mental Illness then bowed out before we could bring the shortlist to you all.

That left us with just the Men and Women categories for judgment.

Our Shortlist is:
Women: Christine Kansy, Barbara A Meier and Sara Minges.
Men: Mark Mitchell, Casey Krysztofik and Kevin Hoskinson.


We will make the decision of the one Woman entry and one Men entry on 2nd Friday June. Those winners will get a limited edition release with Writing Knights with option of more.

Thanks to everyone who sent their work in and we hope to see you all watching us June 14!
