Yep, I’m nervous. For eight years…EIGHT YEARS…I’ve been developing Mystica. Now comes a moment of truth. Magica will soon be in the hands of Kindle readers. What will they think? What will they say?
Don’t get me wrong. I know what I wrote is good thanks to my critique partners, editors, and last but certainly not least, the beta-readers. I thank each and every one of you.
What would you do to save the person you love most?
Magic has waned for eons and is almost gone from Mystica, to the point most are unaware magic exists.
Rufus Lanus counts among those who know. He has a special gift that made him a talented thief as a boy, but his gift came with a price. It killed his mother and nearly lost him his freedom. Now a man in his early twenties, he is married to a wonderful woman and lives honestly working as a dung hauler.
Unfortunately, things take a dire turn when Rufus's wife falls prey to an arcane disease. The only way he can save her is by stealing an endangered herb from the most powerful person in the city. In the process, he uncovers the truth about the gods, comes face-to-face with demigods, and forever changes Mystica.
Magica (a Fantasy novella) is the first entry in the Mystica series. Each story in the series is a stand-alone, very personal in nature, and full of intrigue. Collectively, the books reveal what happens to a world when magic returns and becomes a fifth element.
