Giveaway - Our Man on Earth by Blaise

To celebrate the release of the new book, Our Man on Earth, and launch of the new series The Swithen, which honors the oldest tales of King Arthur and his court in retellings that make the stories come to life for modern readers, Blaise is giving away an e-book to anyone who leaves a comment and contact details in the comment below.

This offer will close at midnight, Sunday 17 December Pacific Standard Time.


Merlin: Sired by a demon and born of a human woman… This is no made-up tale, but the ORIGINAL story of Merlin from the year 1215 AD.

The devil wants a man on earth to work his evil plans. He decides to bring this about by impregnating a human woman. That woman, Meylinde, finds her life turned into a nightmare as a demon picks off her family one by one, until only she is left. Soon the demon’s work is done—in a time when an illegitimate child incurs the punishment of death—and she is desperate to save her own life while thwarting the devil’s plans for her child: a child that will become Merlin, the greatest wizard of all time.

Based on the oldest known accounts of Merlin, the Lancelot-Grail and Prose Merlin romances from around 1215 and 1450, this is Merlin’s actual origin story, not some made-up tale. A work of horror and fantasy, filled with wonder and wit, this book brings the bizarre and weird world of the 15th century, where magic was as real as the air we breathe, to life for the present day.

This is the first book in the series The Swithen, which retells the original tales of Merlin, King Arthur, Guinevere and the of Knights of the Table Round in exciting versions interpreted for modern readers.

  11. Enjoying the copy I was sent, Scott, but wondering about the formatting in the Word doc: I presume this was not the final version.
