Book Cover Reveal for Buried in Angst with book blurb!

A little flirting never hurt anyone, right?

It takes more than just a new job and a new mount to resolve a midlife crisis, but will the temptation of a younger woman really make it better?

Angst had found the adventure he was looking for and got to be the hero, but those days are behind him. To save the ones he loves most, he had to sacrifice his bond with the sword that allowed him to be a hero.

Now, Unsel faces a new threat. With the mysterious destruction of a large coastal city, Angst sets out to discover the cause. He soon learns that a war between the Elements is coming, and humans are in the way. It’s hard to fight back when Angst is dying, the removal of his bond to the great sword Chryslaenor slowly killing him.

Angst needs a sword to live, but Chryslaenor has been stolen! His friends reluctantly join him on another quest, but where do they start? Rose is missing, Angst’s focus and spirit is broken, he has somehow upset the Elements of Ehrde, and a newcomer wants to overtake the throne. What could make things worse? Perhaps a kiss from Princess Victoria’s younger cousin, Alloria?

Buried in Angst is David J. Pedersen’s long awaited sequel to his first fantasy novel, Angst. Join Angst and his friends as they continue…
A Midlife Crisis in Medieval Times

April Update: Cons and a Book Teaser

First of all, I have to say thanks to everyone involved in putting Nerd-Kon together, as well as those attending. It was a great sci-fi / fantasy convention held annually in Omaha, NE - be sure to go in 2014! If you haven't seen the pictures, check them out on Facebook or Google+ . I also want to throw a quick shout-out to visitors from the Convergence con in Minneapolis, they hosted a great room party! I definitely have to put that one on the list for next year.

Our Con addiction continues in May!  We will be attending DemiCon24 for the first time, May 3rd - 5th in Des Moines, IA.  May 24th - 26th we will be returning to ConQuesT in Kansas City, MO!  Looking forward to catching up with some friends at both conventions, and I have some cool surprises for ConQuesT - I can't wait to share!

Buried in Angst is coming along great! I'm still on target to release the book at the end of May. Danielle Fine is about halfway done editing, and doing a fantastic job of cleaning up my mess. I also received the final cover art from Joshua Calloway and it's pretty awesome. I've included a tiny bit below, anyone wanna see the rest? ;)
