I know, I know, I know … I’m in the middle of releasing “The Children of Lubrochius” so I should probably keep my eye on one target at a time. But I couldn’t resist. This week I uploaded a collection of three short stories to both Amazon and Smashwords. The title of the collection is “Of Dragons, Love, and Poison.” I kind of dig that title. Here’s a look at the cover:

OfDragonsFINALCorrected

And here’s some of the backcopy for each short story:

Of Dragons, Love, and Poison: The king’s daughter and her younger brother have vanished and the warrior Thrigon is tasked with finding them. Can he unravel the web of lies and dark magic surrounding their abduction? Or will he find himself a victim to the same power that claimed them?

The Red Archer: Return to the land of Athron in this exciting tale that pits the world’s greatest archer against a master thief.

Fate Unchained: In this tale, a young prince is denied his birthright by an inauspicious augury. Now an adult, the young prince must confront his younger brother for the crown of the kingdom and its ultimate fate.

So, if you like my writing, feel free to purchase a copy and write a review. I’d be very grateful. The collection can be found here on Smashwords and Amazon.

Announcement: This Blog is Moving

I’ve had this blog for a bit over a year now; I’ve gained quite a following. Still, it’s time for me to close up shop here on wordpress … sort of. I’m moving back to my original site: http://www.matthewdryan.com . It’s been a blast on here on A Toast to Dragons, but I’ve decided to centralize my efforts, upgrade the site, and add more functionality. I will keep the domain name: http://www.atoasttodragons.com and simply point it at http://www.matthewdryan.com (I think that’s how it works) so traffic destined for A Toast to Dragons will be redirected to the new site. It’s still going to be powered by WordPress, but unfortunately the followers are not automatically uploaded to the new site. Which means those of you who wish to follow the blog will have to re-follow (Sorry! :(  ) Hopefully the transition will go smoothly and I won’t lose too many followers. Oh, and did I mention that the new site has a newsletter? You can sign up so you will be informed immediately when my next book comes out.
