High Fantasy Writer R.T. Kaelin Releases Fantasy Novel, Progeny, In Ebook Format For Kindle

R.T. Kaelin's writing style has been compared to Brandon Sanderson and David Eddings and the book's scope to those penned by J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Kaelin recognizes that making Progeny available in ebook format will allow his hit novel to be made available to a wider audience, including ebook readers

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 his high fantasy novel, Progeny, in eBook format for the Kindle. The eBook version of Progeny hit the virtual shelves on February 4, 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.

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.
