WHAT IS MILITARY EPIC FANTASY?

Military Epic Fantasy is all the good stuff in a fantasy book, written by a miltary veteran (me) with a feel for the reality of combat. Think Black Company, by Glen Cook, or anything by Joe Abercrombie. If Tolkien is PG-13, military epic fantasy is hard-R.

WHAT IS FLESH WOUND?

Flesh wound is military epic fantasy, written by me, and its totally F##ing awesome. You know that stuff with unicorns or "chosen ones?" There's none of that. We have guys named Cain the Suicide and the Chain Barbarian. We have a Wounded American Soldier from our world battling for survival. Every awesome thing I've ever written.

WHO ARE YOU?

I'm Merrell Michael. I've written several books on the Kindle store, mostly  science fiction and military fiction based on my experiences in the Marines. I served four years as a Rifleman, and was deployed twice to Afghanistan. Here's a link to my blog, and my Kindle storefront:

WHAT KIND OF COVER DOES THE BOOK HAVE?

FLESH WOUND has a wraparound custom painted cover, like every great epic fantasy book ever.

WHAT WOULD MY MONEY GO TOO?

Bringing this puppy to print.

WHEN SHOULD I DONATE?

Right.

Risks and challenges

Its always a challenge bringing something to print, but I'm too awesome to fail.
