So I’ve noticed that there’s quite a few self published fantasy books on sale right now. Why? I’ve got no idea other than us authors trying to flog our wares. Anyways, I thought I’d do a quick list to gather together those I’ve found so far.
I’ll leave this post up for a while, but please be aware the sales on some books may end before I bring it down.
Oh, and I’ll be starting with one of my own…
Never Die by Rob J. Hayes
Ein is on a mission from God. A God of Death.
Time is up for the Emperor of Ten Kings and it falls to a murdered eight year old boy to render the judgement of a God. Ein knows he can’t do it alone, but the empire is rife with heroes. The only problem; in order to serve, they must first die.
Ein has four legendary heroes in mind, names from story books read to him by his father. Now he must find them and kill them, so he can bring them back to fight the Reaper’s war.
The Riven Wyrde Saga by Graham Austin-King
Every myth has its source, every fable has its root.
A boy and his mother, in the right place at just the wrong time, will set in motion events that will change two worlds forever.
The fae were banished, locked away until the tales of them passed into myth and folklore. Now the barriers are ancient, and fading in the faltering grasp of the one man who still knows the truth.
But war is coming to Anlan. Bjornmen raiders have abandoned coastal plunder for outright conquest, and their fleets surge across the icy seas. As the people of Anlan struggle to repel them, and the first battles rage, there are rumours of things in the moonlight – whispers of creatures escaped from myth and fable. An older peril has awoken and mankind must set aside their differences or perish. The fate of the world may rest in the hands of two young men, born of opposite sides of the conflict, and with no reason to trust each other.
The Chasing Graves trilogy by Ben Galley
How far would you go for your freedom?
Meet Caltro Basalt. He’s a master locksmith, a selfish bastard, and as of his first night in Araxes, stone cold dead.
They call it the City of Countless Souls, the colossal jewel of the Arctian Empire, and all it takes to be its ruler is to own more ghosts than any other. For in Araxes, the dead do not rest in peace in the afterlife, but live on as slaves for the rich.
While Caltro struggles to survive, those around him strive for the emperor’s throne in Araxes’ cutthroat game of power. The dead gods whisper from corpses, a soulstealer seeks to make a name for himself with the help of an ancient cult, a princess plots to purge the emperor from his armoured Sanctuary, and a murderer drags a body across the desert, intent on reaching Araxes no matter the cost.
Only one thing is certain in Araxes: death is just the beginning.
Sword of Kaigen by M.L. Wang
A mother struggling to repress her violent past. A son struggling to grasp his violent future. A father blind to the danger that threatens them all.
When the winds of war reach their peninsula, will the Matsuda family have the strength to defend their empire? Or will they tear each other apart before the true enemies even reach their shores?
High on a mountainside at the edge of the Kaigenese Empire live the most powerful warriors in the world, superhumans capable of raising the sea and wielding blades of ice. For hundreds of years, the fighters of the Kusanagi Peninsula have held the Empire’s enemies at bay, earning their frozen spit of land the name ‘The Sword of Kaigen.’
Born into Kusanagi’s legendary Matsuda family, fourteen-year-old Mamoru has always known his purpose: to master his family’s fighting techniques and defend his homeland. But when an outsider arrives and pulls back the curtain on Kaigen’s alleged age of peace, Mamoru realizes that he might not have much time to become the fighter he was bred to be. Worse, the empire he was bred to defend may stand on a foundation of lies.
Misaki told herself that she left the passions of her youth behind when she married into the Matsuda house. Determined to be a good housewife and mother, she hid away her sword, along with everything from her days as a fighter in a faraway country. But with her growing son asking questions about the outside world, the threat of an impending invasion looming across the sea, and her frigid husband grating on her nerves, Misaki finds the fighter in her clawing its way back to the surface.

Rocks Fall. Everyone Dies. by Eddie Skelson
Before the dungeons, before the dragons, there is the party…Valeran is bored. Corbett is broke. Andreton and Donald are on the run and Dorian just wants to do what is right. Not the best recipe for a questing group but when you are driven by a prophecy sometimes the mix is decided for you. Action, humour, bad attitudes and a smart, character driven plot are the hallmarks of an Eddie Skelson adventure and he delivers it all in this story of an absurd fantasy world, where Questing Adventurer is a job title as well as a character trait.

Amra Thetys lives by two simple rules—take care of business, and never let it get personal. Thieves don’t last long in Lucernis otherwise. But when a fellow rogue and good friend is butchered on the street in a deal gone wrong, she turns her back on burglary and goes after something more precious than treasure: Revenge.
Revenge, however, might be hard to come by.

Trouble is, Amra hasn’t got the least clue where the Blade might be.
She needs to find the Blade, and soon, or she’ll be joining her colleague in a cold grave instead of avenging his death. Time is running out for the small, scarred thief.
Dusk (Overworld #1) by Jessica Mellegol-Hansen
Everything started with a star. It graced our sky and gave us anything that we could have ever needed in life. We never went hungry, we never fell ill, and we definitely never died. We thought that it was our prayers and our rigid laws that kept us safely under the star’s protection. I was the first person to notice that the star was going through a great change, but what I didn’t know was what would happen to us next. I couldn’t foresee the struggles that we were going to face. I didn’t know that I would soon be the only person left in town who was searching for the light. I’m beginning to wonder what would happen if the star decides to no longer shine.

Between a corrupt king, a dead god bent on revenge, and barbaric clans determined to return across the sea, Lira must remain vigilant to save what family she has left. She must abandon what is destined and swim against the tides of fate—else her brother’s soul, and thousands more with it, will be lost.
A Ritual of Bone (The Dead Sagas #1) by Lee C. Conley
“Only valour and steel can stand against the rising dead”
Arnar is a land of warriors, its people as stalwart as the stones themselves. In a land of dark forests and ancient hill forts, a forgotten evil is awoken by curious minds.
The Great Histories and the Sagas say nothing of this evil, long passed from the memory of even the studious scholars of the College. For centuries, the scholars of Arnar have kept these records and preserved the knowledge and great deeds of a proud people. The story of these peoples forever chronicled in the Sagas of the Great Histories.
But now the evil spreads and the dead walk in its wake, terrible creatures roam the night and even the spirits are restless. The Dead Sagas could perhaps be the final chapters of these great records.
Many threads entwine to tell this Saga, interweaving the tales of those who played their part in the search for answers and ultimately their fight for survival. Amid plague, invasion and terror, the inexorable rise of the dead sends a kingdom scrabbling to its knees.
