The final countdown for Ixion … Acknowledgments and a note from my Publisher:
My friends and my family lost loved ones last year. I’m thankful for the people I have in my life, and I’m thankful for having known those who are no longer with us.
To my readers: Thank you. And thank you for allowing me to have a little fun with my writing style.
Thank you for giving this book a read. We do apologize for the bawdy language—the author insists that it is necessary for both context and plot. We figure that he’s just doing it because he uses F-bombs for punctuation in his daily life, and believes everyone, for some reason, speaks that way. Also, since we’re an Indie-house … C’est la vie…
Hmm, French … well, that does bring up another topic: Not all of the characters in this book actually speak English. However, instead of writing a good chunk of dialogue in ancient languages as LB wanted to, we decided that it would be easier for the reader if we provided the best English equivalent … unless the story necessitated an ancient or foreign word here or there.
Welcome to Ixion, the First Book of Of Monsters, Gods and Heroes…
