LAURENS - Eric Price of Laurens, had his first novel published on Friday from Muse It Up Publishing.
"Unveiling the Wizard's Shroud" tells the story of Owen, the only son to King Kendrick, who despises the idea of being king one day. He has dreaded the days leading up to his 15th birthday, when his father will certainly declare Owen heir to the throne. But at the birthday celebration, his father falls ill. The only person in the kingdom that may be able to save him is a magician - the very same magician Owen holds responsible for the death of his mother.
Owen and his companions will have to travel the continent of Wittatun in search of the cure for King Kendrick. On the journey, they will battle strange beasts and harsh climates, befriend extraordinary magicians, and meet a dragon before returning to Innes Castle - where much has happened in the days since he departed.
"Unveiling the Wizards' Shroud" will be published as an eBook only (all formats) with the possibility of a paperback contract within a year.
Price has written several science fiction short stories. Three of them have won honorable mention in the annual CrossTIME Short Science Fiction Contest.
