The Outrider Legion: kindle ebook by Christopher Pepper

This was my first full length novel I've ever written.  I conjured it up out of a lifetime of discarded Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, homebrew RPG adventures, fragments of history, and my own warped imagination.  At first I was just writing to tide myself over during summer break, but the story kept growing, and new characters would waltz into my story and make their home there.  Before I knew it, "The Outrider Legion" was over 50,000 words and still going, and I started to feel that I was writing something that other people would (hopefully) be interested in.  

I tried to write a story I'd be interested in reading myself.  It needs action and adventure, sure, but developing characters that people would actually want to get to know was one of my main goals.  Sure, you can just take a surface reading of the archetypal characters and be done with it.  But adding layers beneath them all was a joy, crafting three dimensional people, made the writing so much more rewarding.

Hopefully you will feel the same way as you read this.  There are many more adventures ahead for my characters, and I hope that you will join them for a long time to come.
