Free Short Story (ebook)

Happy Friday!

I’m immensely pleased to share the relaunch of my short fable “LEGEND OF THE TIGER’S THRONE,” which is free on every possible ebook reader.  It’s currently in the TOP 100 bestseller list on Amazon in the World Literature > Mythology category.

It’s also got a nice size free excerpt from my bestselling novel ONCE WE WERE KINGS, which recently won awards in the Forward National Literature Awards and the USA Book News “Best Books” 2011 Awards.

LEGEND OF THE TIGER’S THRONE is free for Kindle at here:

It’s also available for Nook, SONY Reader, and all other platforms from here.

You can get a copy directly from Barnes & Noble here.

A very short tale of the loyalty, honor and sacrifice of a young tiger, the heir to the mystical throne in a fantastical animal kingdom.

Includes excerpts from Ian Alexander’s bestselling epic fantasy novel ONCE WE WERE KINGS

ONCE WE WERE KINGS by Ian Alexander places in two categories, Fiction: Fantasy/Sci-Fi and Fiction: Young Adult in the USA Book News Best Book Awards

Announced on November 1, 2011 by USA Book News, Ian Alexander’s epic fantasy novel ONCE WE WERE KINGS landed not one, but two finalist awards in the Best Books of 2011. When asked to comment, Mr. Alexander simply said, “It’s divine providence, and a great honor.”

Mr. Alexander (the epic fantasy pseudonym by International Book Award winning author Joshua Graham) wrote ONCE WE WERE KINGS at the request of his then six year old son, who read the entire seven book “Chronicles of Narnia” series of C.S. Lewis. Unable to turn down such a heartfelt request, Graham began the first in his own epic fantasy series known as “The Sojourner Saga.”

ONCE WE WERE KINGS debuted as an ebook in May 2011 and in its first week hit multiple bestseller lists on Barnes & Noble and The hardcover edition is soon to be released.

A hit among adult and young readers, ONCE WE WERE KINGS has been enjoyed in middle school classrooms and will soon find its way into the libraries of schools and even juvenile correctional facilities, where Mr. Alexander hopes to bring not only entertainment, but a love for reading, and hope for the future of young people.
ONCE WE WERE KINGS is available at: in both ebook and Hardcover editions

Barnes & Noble for Nook
