It’s here!

Squee! Author’s happiness equals a new mommy’s (I think. I’m not a mum): my baby is here! So let’s make this as informal as possible! 😀

Dear friends

Just wanted to let you know that my book, Books of the Immortals – AIR, was published today as multi-format e-book at Smashwords. As you might know, it’s a character-oriented adult fantasy novel set in my fictional world of Silvery Earth. I hope you’ll take the time to check it out at Smashwords, where you can sample the first 20% of the book for free.

Here is the link to my author book page, where you can sample or purchase the book:

Won’t you also take a moment to spread the word? If you know anyone interested in adult fantasy, forward this to him/her! Tweet it, Facebook it, whatever! 😀

Thank you so much for your support!

Your humble author…

Ahem, OK, I’ll calm down now. Let me tell more about the whole project. Or better, let me know what you think of this official press release… It’s my first, how am I doing?

Press release:

First Novel Of Five: Books Of The Immortals – Air

After two short stories, a novella and some graphic novels, comes the first novel set in the fictional world of Silvery Earth

Roma, Italy – April 2011

Last January Barbara G.Tarn uploaded her first, shorter works on Smashwords. Now the time has come to dig deeper in her fantasy world of Silvery Earth with a novel, the first of five, but also a standalone.

The Books of the Immortals cover a long time span of history of Silvery Earth. The first, Air, speaks of a time when the Magical Races are mostly hiding, and Humans are easy prey of the Ponds of Dark Magic.

Winged beings, water people, shape-shifting dragons and an Immortal mangle and tangle with Humans as they try to find their place in the world and someone to love. Add an adventurer, a sculptor, a winged being, a foreign soldier, a princess and a sorceress… What do they have in common? They’re not trying to save the world from evil, they’re only struggling to survive and fit in, but destiny has other plans that lead to a final confrontation in this gripping story of bitterness and love, darkness and light.
