Book, Book, Book!


Why haven’t I posted in awhile? Read this press release to find out why I’ve been so busy.

Stay tuned for more, and yeah, I’m excited!

Tears of Min Brock Slated for September Release!

Fantasy novelist J.E. Lowder has signed with WordCrafts Press for the release of his four-volume, epic fantasy series, The War of Whispers. The first installment, Tears of Min Brock is set to release mid-September, 2012.

Dark and brooding, Tears of Min Brock follows a young girl of 14 summers, named Elabea, who hears a whisper calling her to the shining land of Claire; a kingdom that was supposedly destroyed in the devastating Dark War. Outcast from her family and village, and guarded by her childhood companion Galadin, Elabea sets out on an epic quest to become one of the most powerful beings in the world – a storyteller.

Tears of Min Brock ends on a cliffhanger, but fans won’t have too long to wait. The second volume of The War of Whispers is set for release on November 1, 2012.

Although Tears of Min Brock is Lowder’s debut novel, he is no stranger to the creative arts. A professional musician by trade, Lowder has played bass for some of the biggest names in the music industry, including country superstar Shania Twain. He credits his time as a musician with giving him the inspiration and stamina to embark on a career as a novelist.

“Both music and creative writing are crafts that take time to hone, and if you’re truly dedicated, you realize there’s always something new to learn,” Lowder says. “They both require hard work, lonely hours, little or no pay, and virtually no recognition. If you choose to persevere through such difficulty, family and friends will look at you like you’re insane (which maybe you are!) but because being an artist is in your DNA, you persevere, concluding they’re the crazy ones.”

“Perhaps the biggest thing I’ve learned from both music and writing is that just because you’re successful, financially or commercially speaking, doesn’t mean you’re good. And just because you’re good doesn’t mean you’ll be financially successful. Insightful? Perhaps, but being able to apply that on a daily basis is another thing.”

About J.E. Lowder

I've played bass for Shania Twain, had a black rhino charge me while on safari, and I've been in the Oval Office. In high school, I went backstage to interview groups like Bob Seger, Rush and Kansas, sorta like "Almost Famous" but without Kate Hudson! As an author, I draw from all these experiences (and then some) when crafting my stories. The quote that sums me up the best is by G.K. Chesterton: "Nay, the really sane man know that he has a touch of the madman." I'm married, the father of four wonderful children, and a proud grandfather. I currently live near Nashville, TN where I write, bike and am always on the prowl for adventure and stories. View all posts by J.E. Lowder
