Where Have All the Elves Gone? by Christian Warren Freed - Book Tour + Giveaway


Where Have All the Elves Gone?
By Christian Warren Freed

Genre:
Urban Fantasy

Everyone knows Elves don’t exist. Or do they? Daniel Thomas spent years
making a career of turning his imagination into the reality of best
selling fantasy novels. But times are tough. No one wants to read
about elves and dragons anymore. Daniel learns this firsthand when
his agent flatly says no to his latest and, what he deems, to be
greatest novel yet. Dissatisfied with the turn to zombies and vampire
lovers, he takes his manuscript and heads out to confront his agent. 
His world changes when he finds his agent dying on the floor of her
office. Too late to help, he watches as her dead body disintegrates
into a pile of ash and dust. Daniel doesn’t have time to ponder
what just happened as a band of assassins breaks in, forcing him to
flee to the Citadel and the home of the king of the high elves in
order to survive. Daniel soon discovers that all of the creatures he
once thought he imagined actually exist and are living among us. His
revelation comes at a price however, as he is drawn into a
murder-mystery that will push him to the edge of sanity and show him
things no human has witnessed in centuries. 


What makes me write?
Unlike much in life, my answer for this is simple. It’s what I was born to do. Ok, maybe not really, but it sure feels like it. It all began in the summer of 77 when my dad took me to see Star Wars in the drive in. Mind blown. We followed that up with Ralph Bakshi’s version of Lord of the Rings and I was hooked! I started making goofy comic books and then less goofy ones. I wrote a very bad horror novel in 10th grade that earned me the student of the month award. (Every time I go home I try to find it and burn it.)
Joining the Army in 1991 put my plans on hold- but it was another thing I wanted to do. I wrote a few books during my first 10 yrs in service and didn’t get serious about it until I became so bored while in Afghanistan that I dug deeper. Since retiring from the Army I have gone on to put out over 20 military fantasy and science fiction novels. Not bad for a young kid from western New York who had a pen and a dream.


Christian W. Freed was born in Buffalo, N.Y. more years ago than he would like
to remember. After spending more than 20 years in the active duty US
Army he has turned his talents to writing. Since retiring, he has
gone on to publish 17 military fantasy and science fiction novels, as
well as his memoirs from his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. His first
published book (Hammers in the Wind) has been the #1 free book on
Kindle 4 times and he holds a fancy certificate from the L Ron
Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.

Passionate about history, he combines his knowledge of the past with modern
military tactics to create an engaging, quasi-realistic world for the
readers. He graduated from Campbell University with a degree in
history and is pursuing a Masters of Arts degree in Military History
from Norwich University. He currently lives outside of Raleigh, N.C.
and devotes his time to writing, his family, and their two Bernese
Mountain Dogs. If you drive by you might just find him on the porch
with a cigar in one hand and a pen in the other.
