About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

The dream of every Death Charger was to die gloriously in battle serving the Galactic Rule: an altered strain of human, grown quick and powerful to fight in a seemingly endless war. One young Death Charger–Daryl Kard–was captured by mysterious beings, as evil as the Galactic Rule itself. The Rule’s dark allies later returned with an infant–a clone of the boy–and they too had made some alterations. The child was given Daryl’s name and his place within their empire, growing up to become the galaxy‘s most feared warrior and their army’s most respected general.

With the defeat of their armies and the depletion of their resources, the Galactic Rule’s bloody crusade to enslave mankind and kill all nonhuman intelligent life-forms had come to an end. Refusing to live in a time without war, General Kard had himself frozen in stasis, hoping for the day when he could be set loose upon their enemy once again. During the two centuries the galaxy believed him dead, his legend grew, until he became known as Death Kard–a powerful symbol of a war-torn time neither side could forget.

Death Kard’s shocking and cataclysmic return unleashed an unstoppable wave of men and machines, hell-bent on the total annihilation of the Galactic Rule. On a quest to prevent what seems to be their imminent destruction, Death Kard sets out alone into enemy space, armed with only a lovesick computer and orders to save their empire. Witness the first 500 years of his amazing life, and a wake of destruction so large, it forever changes the course of an entire galaxy.

Deftly constructed at 337 pages, The Story of Death Kard: A Dark Hero's Journey is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / Science Fiction / General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Story of Death Kard meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.

Additionally, The Story of Death Kard can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks.

About the Author

A social explorer who likes to reinvent herself every few years. Writer, sculptor, dreamer and almost sane. She has written many poems and a few short stories–two poems and one short story about her childhood were published. At ten years old, after writing her first short story–a Sci-Fi–she decided that one day she would write novels, and now she's finally on her way. Writing The Story of Death Kard was a very long but exciting journey. She was so compelled by the characters, and the story, that it almost wrote itself. She cheered, cried and laughed her way through this, her first novel. A very passionate writer who got lost in their strange futuristic galaxy every time her imagination opened the door into Death Kard’s timeless world.
