This week, I want to take a moment to shine a spotlight on another up-and-coming indie fantasy author, Andy Peloquin.
Andy Peloquin—a third culture kid to the core—has loved to read since before he can remember. Sherlock Holmes, the Phantom of the Opera, and Father Brown are just a few of the books that ensnared his imagination as a child.
When he discovered science fiction and fantasy through the pages of writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, J.R.R Tolkien, and Orson Scott Card, he was immediately hooked and hasn’t looked back since.
At 6’6″, he’s a head taller than the average person. He was born in Japan, where he lived until the age of 14, and he dislikes most Christmas music, aside from Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He’s also somehow capable of living a fully-functional life despite laboring under the delusion that Marvel is greater than DC (a minor fault for which he can be forgiven).
Andy’s first attempt at writing produced In the Days: A Tale of the Forgotten Continent. He has learned from the mistakes he made and used the experience to produce Blade of the Destroyer, a book of which he’s very proud. It’s been described as:
“Creative, gritty, and beautifully dark…fantasy addicts will love it!” — Peter Story, author of Things Grak Hates.
“The fantasy world has a compelling new antihero…the Hunter will terrify and captivate you.” – EJ Bouinatchova, author of Soothbound.
A faceless, nameless assassin. A forgotten past. The Hunter of Voramis—a killer devoid of morals, or something else altogether?
The Hunter of Voramis is the perfect assassin: ruthless, unrelenting, immortal. Yet he is haunted by lost memories, bonded to a cursed dagger that feeds him power yet denies him peace of mind. Within him rages an unquenchable need for blood and death.
When he accepts a contract to avenge the stolen innocence of a girl, the Hunter becomes the prey. The death of a seemingly random target sends him hurtling toward destruction, yet could his path also lead to the truth of his buried past?
Reading—and now writing—are Andy’s favorite escapes. They provide him an outlet for his innate creativity. He is an artist; words are his palette. In addition to his own work, he also offers writing services for SEO-optimized content clients.
His website (http://www.andypeloquin.com) is a second home for him, a place where he can post his thoughts and feelings—along with creative writing advice and reviews of books he finds laying around the internet.
He can also be found on his social media pages, such as:

And he’s currently offering his first book, In the Days: A Tale of the Forgotten Continent, free from his website.
One man is shown a glimpse into the future–a future that could be, or the future that is destined to come?
This is the tale of the last days of the great Empire – the Empire that the world forgot. This is the story of Atlantis, in the days when it ceased to be.
