High Fantasy Writer R.T. Kaelin Releases His Writings On The Nook

R.T. Kaelin's writing style has been compared to Brandon Sanderson and book's scope to the Lord of the Rings. A masterful storyteller, Kaelin knows making his works available in Nook format will make his writing accessible to a wider audience.

Ebooks and eBook readers have taken the industry by storm over the last few months. R.T. Kaelin, author of Progeny, recognizes that any author who hopes to be successful in the current book marketing environment must meet the demands of the marketplace. For this reason, he has chosen to offer both his critically acclaimed high fantasy novel, Progeny, along with collections of his short stories, the Terrene Chronicles, in eBook format for the Nook. The Nook version of Progeny hit the virtual shelves on May 10, 2011.

"I am extremely pleased," stated Kaelin, "with the critical success of this fantasy novel. Progeny was written to draw the reader into a vibrant, vivid world full of characters as substantive as any living person. The goal was to have the tale flow seamlessly from the first chapter, picking up and sweeping reader and characters alike into a masterfully woven, tidal epic. I wanted loyalty and love to contrast with scheming and treachery, combining together to create a richly rewarding journey full of both joy and heartache. When the last line is completed, I wanted the readers of the first entry in The Children of the White Lions series to demand to know what comes next. I believe I have achieved that goal."

Progeny, the first installment in the Children of the White Lions series, has garnered rave reviews. Many believe it is among the best fantasy books released recently. Progeny has been compared to Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. Interest in the book has been high for this fantasy book, and R.T. Kaelin has been very busy sharing his fantasy fiction novel with readers. The author has been touring high schools, talking with hundreds of students about creative writing and the power of the written word while sharing his love of reading and writing. A ten-day Authors Chat with R.T. Kaelin was held at LibraryThing.com where the reading community interacted directly with the author, asking him questions about his high fantasy book.

The success of Progeny prompted R.T. Kaelin to write and publish a set of standalone short stories inspired by historical events referenced in Progeny. Fans of the first volume in the Children of the White Lions had stated their desire to know more about the expansive world of Terrene and its rich history. The Terrene Chronicles gives old and new readers alike a chance to see what shaped the people, countries, and events of the world.

Kaelin has also been involved in a number of high profile media interviews, the most recent appearance being The Authors Show, where listeners were able to hear what went into writing the epic fantasy story. He shared where the ideas for his top selling book came from and why the writings of certain bestselling fantasy authors like Raymond E. Feist, Christopher Paolini, and Robert Jordan inspired him to write.

Future events for the author include additional speaking appearance to discuss creative writing as well as a book reading and signing events. Kaelin is available for media interview and can be reached using the contact information below, or by email at [email protected]. More information, including reviews, is available at his website. Progeny is available at Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com and may be ordered from any bookstore. The Kindle edition was published on February 4, 2011 at Amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks.

R.T. Kaelin grew up in Cincinnati and now resides in Pickerington, Ohio with his wife and two children. He works in the information technology field in Columbus. He realizes that the traditional method of publishing involves a high amount of luck and, not wishing to have his high fantasy novel bogged down in the traditional publishing business model, he decided to follow the path of self-publishing. His gamble has paid off as evidenced by the success of his fantasy novel, Progeny.
