Drawing a Dark Way – Now Available in Paperback

(Click for a larger image)

Exciting news. My fantasy for younger readers, Drawing a Dark Way, is now available in trade paperback. It’s been selling steadily as an ebook for a few months, but it’s great to have it available for those who haven’t made the leap to e-readers yet — or at least still have one foot firmly planted in both worlds, as I do.

Right now, you can only get the paperback at Amazon.com, but it should be available via Barnes and Noble, Powell’s, and other online retailers within a few weeks.

Read more about the book over at Rymadoon.com, my website geared for younger readers (and the young at heart, of course).

I’m pleased to announce the publication of my latest novel, a fantasy aimed at younger readers (or the young at heart) called A Tale of Two Giants.  It’s set in Rymadoon, the same world where I’ve set Drawing a Dark Way, though this one is in a different Lost Land — Mana Thune.  (I’ve deliberately set up Rymadoon so there’s lots of stories possible, some of which will be connected, others which will exist more independently.)

Right now, it’s only available as an ebook, but the paperback will follow from Flying Raven Press in a couple of months.

Here’s more about the book:

You don’t have to be tall to be a giant.

They meet on a rainy night, penniless and alone, both of them without a friend in the world. He’s a disgraced, down-on-his luck giant, short for his kind, banished forever from his tribe. He just wants to be left alone — and pity the poor person who annoys him.

She’s a stubborn human girl whose mother has been kidnapped by a evil dictator — and she’s determined to get her back. No matter how long it takes. No matter who gets in her way.

Together they take on an empire.


Grade 4-9; In this intriguing fantasy about two outcasts on a remarkable journey, Carter offers up a riveting adventure that should appeal to fans of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series or Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books. Although this book stands on its own, readers may want also want to try Carter’s first foray into his Lost Lands of Rymadoon series, Drawing a Dark Way.

New Children’s Fantasy: DRAWING A DARK WAY

I’m pleased to announce that my children’s fantasy, Drawing a Dark Way, is now available as an e-book.

The paperback will follow in a few months, but until then, the ebook is available at the sale price of only $2.99. So if you Kindle or Nook owners are looking for an affordable fantasy for young readers, please give this one a shot.  You can read more about the book here, as well as read the first chapter.  It’s available right now at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

If you follow those links, you’ll see that I’ve done something a little different with this book.  Since some of my other books and stories aren’t always appropriate for younger readers (this one is aimed at 9-12 year-olds), I created a new website at www.rymadoon.com.

What is Rymadoon?  Well, it’s a fantasy world, of course, but there are lots of Lost Lands in Rymadoon.  This one is set in Nogero.  There are many more stories waiting to be told in the Losts Lands of Rymadoon, some in Nogero, some in other places.  Not all of my children’s books will be set here, of course, but many will be, and I will still use the Rymadoon site to keep track of all of these books for my younger readers.
