Freebie Friday! "By the Nails of the Warpriest" by Nik Korpon

Nik Korpon Warpriest

Hey, kiddos.  Want something to read over the weekend?

Well, we've got a little treat for you.  Nik Korpon, author of Stay God and Old Ghosts, is giving away his newest book for the price of on the house. If you're unfamiliar with Nik, his book, the aforementioned Stay God, was LitReactor's first official book club selection.  He's also been widely published, landing stories in Crime Factory, Needle Magazine (forthcoming), Black Heart Noir, Powder Burn Flash, 3:AM, Shotgun Honey, and a bunch more. Nik also has a bunch of awesome tats and has mad street cred in Baltimore, so don't mess with him.

Here's the official synopsis:

Rife with political and religious undertones, By the Nails of the Warpriest follows an unnamed thief who steals memories from the elderly—those who have a vague memory of The City before The Struggle—and sells them to memory-junkies. He ekes out an existence by ruining the very souls he [once] tried to save. As a fallen leader of The People, he’s almost thankful that his family is not alive to witness the depths to which he’s sunk.

Then he finds a memory that suggests they weren’t killed in a riot, that someone lied to him. That someone wants to keep him from his family.

You can download By the Nails of the Warpriest in either MOBI or EPUB format by going HERE.


Also, make sure you check out Stay God so you can participate in our book club.

 First of all, I'd like to thank Korpon a lot. I hope this marketing method works out for him. But if I enjoy a book, I usually buy it too. So, sweet. By reading the synopsis, I'd say this might be pretty good.

Cheers, guys. Much of the credit should go to Al and Kyle at Blasted Heath. It was their idea. And I'd highly recommend checking out all of their authors. They're doing great things over there. Just finished ALL THE YOUNG WARRIORS by Anthony Neil Smith, which completely slays, and I'm ready to jump into Ray Banks' DEAD MONEY once I finish this Woodrell.


Cheers for the post, Brandon. Much appreciation.
