edited by FirstEditing.com
I really appreciated that my copy editor, Vonda, respected my individual writing style and tried to improve it continuing my concept without altering or changing it at all.
The service was fast, accurate, and to-the-point.
I will definitely use FirstEditing in my second book!
A short introduction
A warband of hardened mountaineers enters the infested, with demon spawn, jungle. The mountaineers led by young Gonan, a brutal barbarian, face nightmarish ambushes in the face of demonic mutations. Blood flows as battles occur in one of the darkest places of the world. The fight is to death and there can be only one survivor.rnThis is the first tale of the tribute to the great old one series. The series will honor writers and artists that cultivated heroic/epic fantasy. The tales take place in the epic fantasy world "Land of Oyr".rnThere is also a full appendix of the history of the kingdom of Tarantis one of the powerful nations of the Land of Oyr.
The love for reading came from an early age when my parents read me children's books and later when I learned to read I devoured any book I could hold my hands on! The turning point for my immersion into epic fantasy was buying the Lord of the rings centenary edition at 1992 for the one hundred years from the birth of J R R Tolkien. From then on slowly and with my small teenage (and later student) allowance I grew my library and now it includes more than a hundred books (and many more comics) most of them on epic fantasy. My first attempts at creating stories where the background information I made for my rpg characters (mainly AD&D 2nd edition) which I tried to make as elaborate as I could although for many years I haven't written anything down. It was five years ago when I began writing down an epic campaign in the Birthright world setting of TSR, which I grew to like and expanded with stories we didn't roleplay. But serious writing was done when I was searching for a new rpg setting when I decided to make one of my own and wrote its history and timeline. As the information grew I realized that there were many stories I could write to make my world, Land of Oyr, feel alive and real. Also, I decided to make the tribute series with short stories dedicated to great authors I have read and shaped my taste in writing while introducing the world to them. Thus I published recently my first book a tribute to R E Howard a classic Conan sword & sorcery story and there are many to follow and I have plans for a larger novel and an even larger heptalogy (!) where the land of Oyr will be reshaped by cataclysmic events! In day life I am married with a boy of four months old I work in a bank and suffer as a regular person ordinary routine until I become a famous writer! I compete in HEMA events swords fighting being another great love of mine and between or besides all these activities I listen to epic metal music.
