Fantasy, Lore, and More with W.D. Kilpack III

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and today W.D. Kilpack III joins me to discuss the first book in his series New Blood, Crown Prince. 

What’s it about?

Natharr is Guardian of Maarihk. He and others before him have protected mankind since the Olde Gods walked. With Sight, Natharr Sees what will be and, as his father did before him, planned for decades to save newborn Crown Prince Vikari and help him reclaim the throne from the tyrannical Brandt of the Green.

What’s in this episode:  

  • W.D. Kilpack III will transport us to the ancient land of Maarihk, following Natharr as he guards fate. We’ll explore his duty protecting mankind from threat, be it of their own making or, far worse, the machinations of the Demons of Chaos.

  • We’ll discover the Olde Gods, the Firstborn, the Daemon of Sight, and what inspired this epic fantasy exploring tyranny and humanity’s eternal fight for freedom.

  • We’ll discuss Natharr’s Sight and lifetime of planning to shape fate and ensure the Crown Prince can someday return to the throne, reclaiming the seat of power for the rightful descendants of the first Firstborn. Through duty and prophecy, Natharr never stops fighting for freedom.

About the interview:

I entered my book, Curse Breaker Enchanted, in the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off 9 (SPFBO 9) this year and thought it might be cool to interview my fellow entrants. Only 300 books can enter the contest. 10 will advance to the semi-finals, and one will be crowned the winner of SPFBO 9 for 2023. I hope you're cheering for Curse Breaker Enchanted! You can grab a copy for free right now to celebrate.

If you want to get even more involved, join my community on Patreon and start reading book 10, Shards For His Gift, right now. I'm writing what I hope are the final chapters and posting them this weekend.

I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
