Author Michael J. Sullivan is a very talented writer and has been a good friend of SFSN. He has been on our show and we had an incredibly candid conversation about his process and his books. We got an email from him this week and I would like to share some of it with you. His latest book, The Crown Tower, is a prequel to his current series. From a publisher’s point of view, the inherent problem with any prequel,, is that you already know where the story is going, and their contention is that it simply won’t sell very well. Michael wants to show his publisher that good storytelling in the universe he has created will sell, so he is giving away copies of it to prove to them that there is interest.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Hadrian Blackwater, a warrior with nothing to fight for is paired with Royce Melborn, a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Together they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm’s most prized possessions. But it isn’t gold or jewels that the old wizard is after, and if he can just keep them from killing each other, just might do it.
