Jay Robertson will hold a signing of his first book War of the Frozen Fire at Walmart on Wednesday

War of the Frozen Fire launched

Jay Earl Robertson is a little nervous but excited about his first book signing event to launch his first book War of the Frozen Fire.

Jay Earl Robertson is a little nervous but excited about his first book signing event next week to launch his first book War of the Frozen Fire.

He works at Walmart and that is why he has chosen that venue for his very first book signing on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from noon to 3 p.m.

Being his first book signing Robertson says it will be fairly simple. He only has 30 copies of his book available but there will be baked cookies and treats for visitors to enjoy.

His book War of the Frozen Fire is a fantasy novel along the lines of Lord of the Rings. It is the first in a series of five books that he first conceived of back in 2000 and has already written in draft form.

In War of the Frozen Fire Mystasia is in danger. Someone has created a spell called froen fire. It is destructive enough to destroy entire armies and castles. The creator of the spell has raised an army that includes medusas, nagas, and orcs.

To make matters worse, an invisible assassin is hunting down the surviving noble lords.

To survive the spell they must learn who has created it.

The citizens of Mystasia have no choice but to turn to the dark races for help, but they are reluctant to save the country that betrayed them centuries ago.

Book 2: Blue Moon Over Wish Water will be out in March of 2014.

“It has even more twists and takes the story in a different direction,” Robertson says.

He is inspired by authors such as Terry Brooks who wrote the Shanara Series and helped inspire movies such as Krull.

“This is probably where I got the idea to put Cyclops in my novels,” Robertson says.

While his novels are similar in style to Lord of the Rings or the Underworld movies, Robertson says he hadn’t read these works until after he had started his Frozen Fire series.

Robertson was born in Williams Lake and lived here for a couple of years before going on to live in Chetwyn, Dawson Creek and Quesnel.

He returned to Williams Lake four years ago and lives here with his wife Stephanie and daughter, Shayla.

In addition to writing novels, he enjoys writing music, camping and the outdoors, and pets, both domestic and exotic.

War of the Frozen Fire is available at Amazon.ca and Amazon.com and a number of other places on the internet.

He is happy to say the book has earned five and  four-and-a-half stars out of five in Amazon reviews.
