This sixth offering in Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, KoboBooks, and iTunes (iBookStore). For more information please visit the “Tales” page at

For non-USA readers, Amazon and KoboBooks offer access and purchase from outside of the USA. For Amazon, you will need to seek the proper site by domain extension (.es, .uk, etc.); see the main site for assistance if you cannot find your region’s domain site. KoboBooks has affiliates in about 150 countries, though their main site (from what we understand) sells directly (with immediate access) to many countries around the world.

NOTE: At present we are not able to provide international access to “tales” via (iBookStore). Listing and price control there for non-USA purchases has not been adequately refined via their publishing portal to account for fluctuating currency exchange rates as is done through other portals.

It may take a little more time for our privately published titles to filter through these large vendor sites to any of their non-USA subsites, but they will. Please be patient. While you are at our site, have a look at the previous “Tales” releases in the “Homeward” and “Bones of the Earth” sequences.

Though set in the world of the Noble Dead Saga, “Tales” and their sequences do not require knowledge of the saga’s books/series. You can easily pick up and read one as your first venture in this world.
