I figured I could go ahead and let you all know about my book. I started this project over two years ago after the VA declared me unable to work. In an attempt to still feed my family I turned to a long loved passion of writing, since I was a young boy in elementary school I had the ability to surprise my teachers with a talent, that just needed to be nurtured. Teaching myself the main points of writing over the years and following great authors’ examples I began to write.
I wanted to do a fantastic tale that was fiction like World of Warcraft or Forgotten Realms, but it just wasn’t flowing correctly the way I intended. After some deliberation I began watching an old show on History channel called “Barbarians, the Goths.” It was then it occured to me, I could still use my love of history, and fantasy. Much like how the directors filmed “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter” was how I set out. Take history and fined some clues that could make this story seem factual, but still appeal to everyone’s sense of imagination and adventure.
I began writing it with the intentions of basing the characters off of a few friends and family and the way they play RPG “Role Playing Games” All I needed was a spark, and once I began it didn’t stop.
This is the tale of the heroic companionship of a mercenary named Luchief, who has been trained from the last of a lineage that follow the true warrior’s path, after his childhood goes up in flames. On a quest for gold, women, and immortality of his name, he works for towns as a sword for hire. Being tall dark and handsome, with a witty mind, he becomes the celebrity of the the uncivilized native folk.
After being sent on a quest to do the impossible and raise an army to defeat Rome he sets off to find any allies that would side with him, while at his destination, Luchief’s quest has long since been in deliberation with a governor who is of the old ways and his faithful general. Lord Taxius and General Botchius ask aid from the Saxons and the Goths. As they plead for aid, Rome hears word of this treachery and assembles its forces to deal with the renegade governor Taxius.
An epic tale of heroism, sacrifice, and a friendly band of brothers who will travel to Hell and back in an ultimate goal of immortalization and their names to be sung throughout history. But when the Empire controls all forms of literature and great authors, it is easy to remove the heroes, and to turn a righteous cause into an act of barbaric quest for glory and gold.
