PLC Interviews: Sam Sykes, author of Tome of the Undergates

Hey everybody! Today is most auspicious! Wanna know why? Because today we have our very first guest post up at PLC.
Sam Sykes, author of  fantasy novel Tome of the Undergates sat down and talked writing with us.

Tome of the Undergates will be released in several countries (including the US, of course) next Tuesday. Here’s a snippet of  Tome I yanked from Sam’s website.

“Contrary to whatever you might have heard in songs and stories, there are only a few productive things a man can do once he picks up a sword.

“He can put it to use for his country, if he’s got any pride.  He can use it to defend his loved ones, if he’s got any.  And if he’s got any intelligence at all, he can put it down.

“For those who are lacking all three, the only viable option is to embrace that meanest and most disrespected of professions: adventuring.  Falling somewhere just below the rank of mercenary and just above the classification of scum, adventurers are chiefly a source of cheap labor, providing with violence and misfortune what they lack in standards.

“And I count myself among the cheapest.

I for one look forward to reading his debut. Sounds like it’s going to be one bloody butt-kicker of a fantasy novel. (my favorite kind!) You can order it from Amazon.

Next Tuesday @ the PLC: Alan DeNiro, author of Total Oblivion, More or Less and Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead
