Black Monastery Marketing Plan

A flawed Viking hero battles an ancient evil in an epic historical fantasy tale of redemption in the face of unimaginable horror. 

Banned from his homeland, Viking warband leader Asgrim Wood-Nose has been declared outlaw. Unless he can raise a princely blood debt, he will never see his beloved Denmark again. When a Saracen merchant brags of a great treasure hidden on the Frankish island of Noirmoutier—home to the Black Monastery—Asgrim believes fate is offering him a chance to go home again. But Asgrim is unaware that the monks of the Black Monastery have inadvertently released a dark supernatural force, an eastern demon that wears the skins of its victims. Hunted by this monstrous evil and tormented by the ghosts of those he has slain, Asgrim’s only ally becomes another lonely soul, a Frankish woman abandoned by her people under suspicion of witchcraft.

The Viking north clashes with the supernatural east in an epic historical fantasy tale of heroism and redemption in the face of unimaginable horror.

Book Blurb and bio:

Beware the foe behind the strange threshold.

In 799 A.D. Viking warband leader Asgrim Wood-Nose sails his prized longship Sea Eel south along the coast of Frankia to raid the island of Noirmoutier—the Black Monastery.

Banned from his homeland following a night of rage-filled murder, Asgrim has been declared outlaw. Unless he can raise a princely blood debt, he will never see Denmark again. When a Saracen merchant brags of a great treasure hidden deep within the monastery, Asgrim realizes fate is offering him a chance to go home again. But Asgrim has led his men into a trap: somehow, the monks of the Black Monastery have released a dark supernatural force, an eastern demon that wears the skins of its victims. Hunted by this monstrous evil and tormented by the ghosts of those he has slain, Asgrim’s only ally becomes another lonely soul, a Frankish woman abandoned by her people under suspicion of witchcraft.

The Viking north clashes with the supernatural east in an epic historical fantasy tale of heroism and redemption in the face of unimaginable horror.

So, the plan so far

Author bio: I need to improve my author bio. I'll make it more straight to the point and relatable. I will show what credentials I have, and I will sen my updated bio to my website www.williamstacey.ca

Media page: I will focus on a media kit on my webpage.

Blurb: I will attempt to punch up my blurb and hook the reader with a great first sentence.

Punch up online customer sites: Add customer images on Amazon (more pictures)

  • Add new description through author central to my page and include the use of bold, enhanced blurb, and more to my bio.

Library thing giveaway: I will do not just a paperback giveaway but an ebook giveaway as well. In fact, I will give away as many ebooks as people want in order to generate reviews.
