International bestselling independent author M. R. Mathias is proud to announce the upcoming release of the second installment of his Wardstone Trilogy: Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools. The ebook version will be available for download in late June 2011 with an official release date of July 4th 2011. Mathias chose this date to celebrate the freedom his writing has brought him.
Mathias’ is a great story says W.R. Potter, founder of the Independent Authors Network. From writing huge epic novels while in prison for drug abuse, to the top of the Amazon fantasy bestsellers lists worldwide. Not only is he an inspiration for rehabilitation, he has shown thousands of Independent Authors that with self publishing, anything is possible.
Book one of The Wardstone Trilogy: The Sword and the Dragon was released less than a year ago and is still at the top of ebook bestseller charts across the board. The third and final novel of the trilogy: The Wizard and the Warlord, is scheduled for release in 2012. Mathias is also the author of the bestselling fantasy series: The Saga of the Dragoneers, as well as the paranormal horror/thriller The Butcher’s Boy that was released in 2010 under the pen name Michael Robb.
The cover of Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools was made by GVX Grafix featuring the original artwork of Sandara Tang (sandara.deviantart.com)
“The artwork is perfect,” said the author. “The woman on the dragon is Shaella, the Dragon Queen. I wanted it the second I saw the work. Then when Gary from GVX finished turning the piece into a cover I was just amazed.”
M.R. Mathias has been clean and free since his release three years ago, and he has every intention of staying that way. He says, “Writing was my salvation. I was in maximum security for a while, because I got into a few fights. I was in a modern day dungeon cell 23 hours a day, everyday. Every word, on every page, of The Wardstone Trilogy was a moment of freedom for me.”
