Witches and Bandits and Swords (Oh My)

FIVE STARS! Big Al’s Books and Pals Read Review

The plan had seemed so simple back home; a sea voyage to trade spices with a distant land promised great fortunes for you and your friends. However, a vessel flying a pirate standard had other ideas. Now that you find yourself waking up alone in a strange forest, it’s time to quickly take control of the situation and make the decisions necessary to get back what’s yours before it’s too late.

Outsmart vicious bandits!

Trade potions with witches!

Try not to be too offended by the sarcastic rabbit!

Can you save your friends and bring peace to a land on the brink of devastation? Or will your choices lead you to a grisly fate?

I started this project off back in 2009 and then gave up on it for a few years. It then occurred to me that this would work well as an ebook. As the book relies on skipping to entirely different sections, clicking on bookmarks to link you to different sections is far more sensible than constantly trying to find specific sections in a paper copy.

Had a lot of fun writing this- but none at all formatting it for Kindle! In some ways, it was uncharted territory as I couldn’t find any guidelines about how you’d go about this. Fortunately, my usual approach of trial/ error/ considering throwing my laptop out of the window prevailed and here it is!

I wanted to charge as little as possible for this and work on a full price horror game for later in 2013 so this is available on Amazon at £0.77/ $0.99 for a complete 20,000 word game. You really can’t say fairer than that! I’ll work on a Smashwords version when I’ve recovered some of my sanity.

Many thanks to Raeyenirael for the cover photo.
