I wanted to share with you a story I read last night. It's Zathyn Priest's seventh story, The Statue, another one to place on the shelf of great masterpieces. What makes the story even more special is that if you buy it from his website, you get the graphic version too. Those graphics are absolutely stunning!
If you've read a Zathyn Priest story before, you'll know that what you'll get is top quality. If you haven't read one before, I so envy you for the gems you have yet to read! I don't know of another m/m author who has 4+ star ratings on ALL of his stories on Goodreads. That's so rare for authors, but not surprising for Zathyn. His writing is beautiful, funny, and the storylines stay with you forever. It's no wonder that his books keep popping up on lists of bestsellers and awards.
You can download a free graphic story, One of Those Days (my first read and what got me hooked on this author). You also get a "normal" story (without the graphics), but I do recommend the graphic one, it's just so beautiful.
You can also buy The Statue for $2.99 (a total steal for a story like this) - and while I'm at it, Left of Centre is also $2.99 and it is to die for! (Yes, this is me being a total fangirl). Then there are the bestselling novel length works: The Curtis Reincarnation (Rock star!! *Swooon*), Liquid Glass (currently down for re-publication), and The Slayer's Apprentice. Last but not lease is his blog story Emrys Amara. They're all brilliant.
While I'm at it, Zathyn is giving away a copy of The Statue on Friskbiskit. It ends on Monday (I think).
The Statue Blurb:
Freelance journalist, Tristan Church, wants to expose Galloway Mental Hospital’s dirty secrets. Teaming up with broody photographer, Mark, promises other perks. A ten year relationship with high school sweetheart, Eli, no longer offers Tristan the excitement he craves. Mark made his intentions clear and Tristan is close to giving in to his advances.
One morning at ‘The Gallows’ leaves Tristan reeling. He wasn’t prepared for the hell he witnessed and certainly wasn’t prepared to meet Zane. Disarmed by Zane’s angelic manner, Tristan can’t believe anyone would stand him up. He soon realises the tardy boyfriend only exists in Zane’s mind and the beautiful young man is not a visitor to The Gallows but a patient.
Eli walks out and Tristan’s life falls apart. A decision to meet with Mark almost ends in tragedy and Tristan finds solace in Zane’s company. Before long Zane’s delusions begin terrorising him again. While Tristan fights to save his own sanity and get Eli back, he knows someone must fight for Zane’s right to love a man no one else can see. A man who scares away violent hallucinations, takes away Zane’s fear, keeps him safe, and is trapped inside a stone statue.
