Loss of a Name

Post by Admin on Thu Apr 25, 2013 9:16 am

A millennium old system of controlling divine power is seeking a method to renew and improve its dominance. Hoping to appease certain establishments, a better selection of innocents is performed in a final operation. What happens is something no one would have thought possible

Four mature men are transformed and sent to a world very different than their own. Adjusting to their new bodies and surroundings is more complicated than they realize, because the world is forced to adjust to them.

~^~^~ ^~^~^ ~^~^~
It was around the turn of the millennia and I had a new wife. Things were going well, but I wanted to assure myself that I could do around her the very thing that my first wife did not like about me. I thus sat down to write a story. Wondering what to write, I thought of my novels about a group of friends attempting to resolve a problem that had changed them. Realizing that the actual events of their early days had never been written down, I began writing wondering if my present wife would gripe. She did not, and this story became a reality (my second wife had her own problems, but being a bitch really was not one of them).

It was difficult to write, because I had an established outline. While I had not actually written the tale, my notes basically had the events set down. Now, I am very bad a following an outline. I thus feared that this book would go off on some alternate train of thought. It did not, and I ended the book really amazed at what I had done.

This novel was published (for lack of a better word) by PublishAmerica. The only fault in the writing was its use of a floating PoV. There is thus a plan to rewrite using a fixed perspective, but every time I sit down to do that I only end up reading the story again. It will however happen one day.

I have actually worked through a rewrite of this novel. Do not know actually what happened, but my mind focused on the story and I stayed in the groove until done. Hopefully will move on to do more with this entire series.

Old cover

Yes, I drew that. I designed that cover as my suggestion for the original printing of the book. Even PublishAmerica proved that it had standards by not using it. They put together a fantastic cover, and I was amazed when the old blue thing of Jackal and Rain sold better. Anyway, I am planning to release "Loss of a Name" again, and thinking of my cover. I doubt that I will actually use this thing, but it is an idea.

The new release

Post by Admin on Tue Sep 17, 2013 11:35 am


Highly edited into a more professional presentation, "Loss of a Name" is now available on Nook and Kindle.  That cover is mine.  The other two of the trilogy are now also available.   Remember the name of the author is Roby Ward.
