Look For A Sword In The Stars


There’s another new fantasy series hitting bookshelves on August 13th through AMG Publishers. It’s entitled The Dark Sea Annals and is being written by author Wayne Thomas Batson. The first book in the series is Sword in the Stars. It tells the story of “Alastair Coldhollow who is haunted by memories of a violent past. He wagers his life on the hope that a sword will appear in the stars and the foretold Halfainin, the Pathwalker, would come. Meanwhile, tensions simmer between Anglinore and the murderous Gorrack Nation, threatening war on a cataclysmic scale. The fate of all could rest on an abandoned child and the decisions of those who desperately seek to identify him.” You can read more about the book and author Batson after the jump.

Synopsis:
A noble king discovers what happens when he leaves a door open for evil. The disastrous consequences impact generations, leaving the throne of Anglinore to a wicked despot, the kingdom in ruins, and Aravels son Loch in exile. To throw down the vile new authority, Loch will need to find the fabled Halfainin and raise a new army from a world of reluctant citizens. Together with his archer friend Ariana, Loch will face adventures that span the world of Myriad, creatures that defy imagination, and choices great and terrible all these recorded in The Dark Sea Annals.

About the Author:
Wayne Thomas Batson was born in Seabrook, MD in 1968. During the early years he tortured his older brothers
and sisters, doing those things that only younger siblings can do to get on your nerves. Wayne attended Gabriel DuVal Senior High School and wrote this for his yearbook. During his high school and early college years, he played lead guitar for a rock band called Contagious. They were catchy, but apparently not enough to get a record deal.

Having completed the rigorous Holmes English Literature Curriculum, he graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1991. In 1996, he received his first graduate degree in counseling. He has continued his studies with 36 credit hours of graduate-level reading courses. Having spent the last fifteen years teaching reading and English to middle schools students, Wayne pioneered the active instruction of strategic reading in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and has written Reading and English curricula for three public school districts in the state.

Wayne lives in Eldersburg with his beautiful wife of eleven years and his four wonderful young children. Besides dividing his time between family, teaching, and writing, he likes to read, golf, play PS2, travel to the beach, play electric guitar, and create 3D artwork.
