"Adventure Hunters," by Cody Martin

Today I thought I'd shake things up a bit, and instead of posting a review I'd recommend a book! Here's a great story you should all get your hands on, but of course, before we get to the book itself, here is a bit about how it came about!

Who is your publisher, and would you recommend them?
I'm self published. I distribute through Amazon and Smashwords. I like Amazon because you reach so many people. Smashwords distributes through many retailers and you can download books in many formats from their site.

Did you design your own cover, or have someone else help?
FutureKnight on Deviantart graciously let me use his piece Ă’Mountain RuinĂ“ for my novel. Edward Kim, a designer and illustrator, did the design of the cover. 

What format(s) is your book available in? 
Ebook only. Hopefully next year I'll get it formatted for paperback through CreateSpace.

When was your book released?
January 2012

What genre does your book fit into?
General fantasy. 

Where can people go to learn more about you and your work?

Artorius, Regina, and Lisa, are three adventurers who explore ruins and ancient buildings looking for treasures. Most of the time, they're just trying to make ends meet. But when they explore a town rampaged by goblins, they get more than they bargained for. They uncover a cache of ancient war golems, powerful weapons of destruction once thought to be only myths. Soon, they are in a quest for the Lambda Driver, the key to the golems's activation. But they aren't the only ones, and they will have to defy their own king to find it first. If King Ryvas has his way, he will unleash the golems's destructive power on the neighboring kingdom. The adventurers's quest will take them from mountains to poisoned valleys and enchanted forests but they must hurry. Where is the Lambda Driver? What secret do the golems hold? And why does their friend Regina seem to be in the midst of it all? 

You can get your own copy of Adventure Hunters from Amazon or Smashwords. Enjoy!
