added to my forlorn cloud archive. I don't even know where my fancy tablet is currently. Under the bed? heh
Thank you
Getting a lot of these self published free books on HUKD now. Really not worth it. Not even for 0p! If you want epic medieval romance try Sunne in Splendour, or Forever Amber (book only). If you want the fantasy element, try Assassin's Apprentice. I'd rather pay good money for a solid 10-20 hours of entertainment rather than a succession of free, but rubbish, time wasters.

I enjoy reading indie authors, especially if they're free. Some I like, …I enjoy reading indie authors, especially if they're free. Some I like, some I don't. But I always read them before I decide.

I got to the bit about the castle growing from the mountain like a stalactite, (a few lines in,) and decided - no, not for me.

I have to agree. Furthermore whilst there exists a back catalogue of thousands of classics which can be downloaded for free why would I be motivated to read a self published book by an unknown author? No disrespect intended to the original poster, or for that matter the author of the book, but I can't really justify reading this whilst I am yet to finish Anna Karenina. Whilst these self published books may be better than I am giving them credit for, I doubt they are of the same literary level as Tostoy or any other tried and test author whose work has stood the test of time.

Ok, well I read the whole book, and I enjoyed the dry humour of the first person story telling. For me it was deliberately exaggerated "bad" writing.

I'm genuinely impressed by your perseverance. I read the first page and found myself entirely perplexed by the author's choice to describe the castle as "fortitude".

Anyone who purchased the paperback version of this book has my deepest sympathies; it is currently listed on Amazon at the shocking price of £11.99.

Dont be too perplexed. First person narration means that a fictional character is using the words 'fortitude' and also 'stalactite'. Although the author is selecting the words it is the character speaking. These kind of subtle jokes might not be blatantly obvious but they appeal to my quirky sense of humour.
I had a quick look at one of the author's other books, Venus and the Crucified, which, incidentally, is not written in the first person narrative yet the use of language and writing style was as equally poor as I found it to be in this book. I used to teach English in secondary schools and honestly, I have read the work of year nine pupils which was of a higher standard than this author's work.

As I mentioned in an earlier post there exists a back catalogue of thousands of classics which can be accessed for free; why anyone would choose to read this author over the some of the great work of the English literary canon is an inclination I find utterly baffling.

I can only conclude two notions: either you are the author, or he is paying you to promote his work.
