I have created my first music album— an experimental piece featuring analog Moog synthesizers among a few other instruments.
I have finally published the first edition of my Russian historical novel For He Was A Cossack! It has been a long road, consisting of day after day of careful line-pouring and lightning edits and proofreads.
But it is done, at least enough to finally let others read!
Seize the opportunity, comrade, for my book is on sale!
"Amidst personal and economic tragedies, horseman Ivan Shostakov tries to keep his life and house intact while also fighting for his country.
To expound the situation, family relationships are being pushed to the breaking point and Tsar Peter I is keen on Europeanizing Russia, torturing everyone, and squelching the Cossack culture of Southern Russia. A large-scale novel of action and solitude, romance and conflict, spanning the vast territories from golden steppe to cold northern forest in Finland and Siberia, For He was a Cossack is an enthralling read." http://www.lulu.com/shop/azure-james/for-he-was-a-cossack/paperback/product-22770047.html
I have just finished my second novel, The Grey Road! I am very excited. Click on the link to see it on the publishing website, Lulu.
The Grey Road: Royce Macduff is in a small-time but pretty infamous gang called the Rowman Posse. However, his easy life changes when an event occurs involving the leader’s friend Johnny Pellette. Royce finds himself riding the Grey Road between criminality and innocence in order to survive. (first edition which may include mistakes)
This is a limited-time first edition, which may include mistakes.
My new Western novel “The Grey Road” is about to be finished! I will be releasing a first edition of it in time for New Year’s. It has been a long ride and I am happy to finally start sharing it with people. It is my second novel. (the first one is called Vengeance Trail)
Any fans of Westerns, the South, Texas, or good reads may be interested.
Thank you all a lot! I’ll post it on here once it’s officially published.
p.s- I spell “grey” in the English way because it looks more professional and just feels right.
I like grey.
