Hello Friends,

Today, please help me get the word out, by forwarding this with a personal note, posting something on Facebook, blogging, tweeting, and telling your friends about this series. Word of mouth is the key, and is by far the most powerful thing you can do to help. Let your fantasy reader friends know the books are out.

I really need your help telling readers about my series and will appreciate anything you can do to help, and would love your support.

Here’s what the critics have said about the series:

“This is a story that’s worth your time. It’s almost like going back to that first fantasy novel that totally captivated you and you read it over and over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”

—Russell Davis, author, editor, and President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America about The Golden Cord.

“Genesse stresses the necessity of trust between races and cultures and the perils of bias and dissention, and he keeps the plot moving quickly . . . ”

—Publishers Weekly

“With vivid world-building, Paul Genesse sets his characters on paths that wind and twist through the world as they try to reach their almost impossible goal—the death of the Dragon King. The characters are driven, each for their own reasons, united by their desire for honor, and vengeance for their kin. In the midst of a fantasy, Paul weaves in realistic themes of family and honor, prejudice and hate, love and redemption.”

—Elizabeth Vaughan, USA Today bestselling author of The Warlands trilogy
