Could Eric Price Be the Next Great Author?

Today, I'm celebrating the release of Eric Price's fantasy novel, Unveiling the Wizard's Shroud. Doesn't that title just captivate you? Hah! But check out the cover below. Doesn't it pull you right in? I mean, look at the mysterious figure shrouded in his cloak, and the castle. What's flying over it? Tremble, tremble, I'm already scared.


Unveiling the Wizard'sShroud is Eric Price's first novel, and we all know everyone is searching for that new and unique author. Worth a try? I'd say so.

Here he is donning one of his Unveiling the Wizard's Shroud t-shirts. And today, he's giving away a $25 gift card to a winner who takes part in the rafflecopter below.  Think I'll enter.


Want to know more about him?


Eric grew up in central Illinois. He now lives in northwest Iowa with his wife and two sons. He began publishing in 2008 when he started writing a quarterly column for a local newspaper. His first short story, “Ghost Bed and Ghoul Breakfast,” a spooky children’s tale about a haunted bed and breakfast, came out later the same year. He has published more than 30 nonfiction articles/columns, four short stories, and a poem. Three of his short stories have won honorable mention in the CrossTIME Annual Science Fiction contest. 

Now here's the Blurb we've all been waiting for:


As the only son to King Kendrick, Owen despises the idea of being king one day. Magician may be the only career he’d like less. He has dreaded the days leading up to his fifteenth birthday, when his father will certainly declare Owen heir to the throne. But at the birthday celebration, his father falls ill. The only person in the kingdom that may be able to save him is a magician–the very same magician Owen holds responsible for the death of his mother.



Owen and his companions will have to travel the continent of Wittatun in search of the cure for King Kendrick. On the journey, they will battle strange beasts and harsh climates, befriend extraordinary magicians, and meet a dragon before returning to Innes Castle–where much has happened in the days since he departed.

This all looks mighty interesting to me. Could this be the next great author we're all looking for?

This fine novel will be available on all the main purchasing sites within a few days. But hey, check out the Muse. It's a great publishing site and  there are a lot of wonderful books to choose from and for quite inexpensive.

    1. Thanks Katie. You would know. After all, you're partly responsible. I'll never forget, or undervalue, the time and effort you put into it.

    1. Thanks for the promo, Penny. Yes, CK Volnek did outstanding work on the cover, as she always does. I couldn't be happier. Muse really put together a great team for me with Katie, CK, and Nicole. I forget to give Nicole the credit she deserves sometimes. I look at the content editing as washing a muddy car. When your done, the changes are obvious. The line editor is like waxing and detailing. The changes aren't as obvious, but they're still important to make it better.

  5. What an exciting time for you, Eric. I love the cover too. I grew up in Central Illinois too, Logan County. It must be all those endless rows of cornfields that make us dream up stories, eh? Best wishes!!
