I’m SO excited to be a part of this! 😀 I absolutely loved the book, and you can read my review for it HERE!
To celebrate the book’s release, the digital version is being offered at the special discounted price of 99 cents, now through February 17th. In addition, you’re invited to come along on a virtual treasure hunt visiting some of the places featured in the novel. And to help you along your journey, we’re giving away a few prizes, too. So how ’bout them apples?
Today’s stop is:
The ancient edifice of Castle Brimstoke looms lonely and defiant on the end of a long, narrow promontory rising high above the Neverless Sea. The charcoal gray fortress is dominated by a frenzied assortment of serrated spires, like an arsenal of jagged swords thrust into the cliff. The crumbling stonework appears as if it had been chiseled out of the rocks long ago and then forgotten and left to decay.
The narrow land bridge granting access to the castle is close to a quarter mile long. Mortared stone walls line the approach, but like the castle itself, they too are in disrepair.
As long as any can remember this bulwark has been the residence of the fiery and independent Brimstoke line, nobles whose peasants have worked both the land and sea. Rumors paint the barons of Brimstoke as cruel and harsh taskmasters, but sequestered as they are in remote northern lands, who can say whether the rumors are true or whether the Brimstoke line died out long ago.
We hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the world of Arinn. If this taste has you curious, be sure to check out the full length novel set in this world.
This unique tale is not your typical fantasy novel. Yes, you’ll find monsters, dungeons, harrowing escapes, magic portals, humor, an ancient artifact, and much more, but above all: This is a story about the importance of family, faith, and the courage to do the right thing.
Here’s the official teaser:
The Last Motley
Motleys. Candy-colored creatures with dark powers to drain the souls of men. That’s what Roderick always thought. Until he met one. Now he’s not so sure. But with seemingly everyone in the province hunting the motley down, he must quickly decide which side he’s on.
Is the motley the living nightmare the legends say? Or just a child cursed by magic? Should Roderick save him from an awful fate, or turn him in? Either way, it seems like everyone wants to make sure that this will indeed be the last motley.

Treasures along the way
As you follow along on this virtual tour of Arinn, be sure to enter the giveaway to make your journey a little easier. Maybe you’ll be one of the ones to find treasure at journey’s end.
Here’s what we’re giving away:
You can use the journal to record your travels, the novel as your guide, and the coloring book to, well…for those rainy days when you’re stuck in the inn!
PLEASE NOTE: By entering the giveaway you agree to receive occasional email updates about DJ Edwardson’s releases, sales and book reviews. He will not share your email for any reason and you can unsubscribe at any time. Entries accepted until February 23rd.
Now if you’re feeling especially adventurous, there is a separate giveaway for the truly dedicated treasure hunters among you. All you have to do is collect ALL TWELVE location names on the tour (e.g. if this were for Middle-earth the answers might be Rivendell, The Shire, Mordor, Gondor, etc. — basically we’re looking for the names of the places featured on each of the maps at every stop).
Once you’ve got them all, send them to:
and you will be entered in a drawing to win this one-of-a-kind poster of the World of Arinn. Measuring 36″X24″ it is nearly movie poster size, printed on thick, glossy paper, and suitable for framing. In addition, the map will be signed by the author. This is a prize you won’t find anywhere else!
You will not be added to the email list for this drawing. Entries accepted until February 23rd as well.
Winners for both contests will be contacted within three days of the closing of the contests.
