The Guardians of Eastgate - 1st edition.
This is the first edition of my first book, The Guardians of Eastgate: Book One of the Seers Series. I used an assisted self-publishing company, Tellwell.ca. They helped with everything including editing, cover design, interior formatting, setting up my distribution accounts, and so on. They have different packages you can choose from according to your needs. It was a good way to learn the basics of self-publishing and what I would need to do, and the help I would need to find, to self-publish myself next time.
An elusive Seer. A rogue wolf-shifter. If they can’t unite a divided kingdom, their world will be lost forever.
After her father’s tragic demise, Maelona keeps her powers close and pushes everyone else away. So when visions of a dark sorcerer plague her remote Seer community, she’s horrified to learn the realm’s defenses are in danger. Tasked with an impossible mission to unite all paranormal beings in the fight against evil, she fears long-held divisions could spell their demise.
Will Maelona bring the realm together before a sinister foe divides and conquers?
The Guardians of Eastgate is the first book in the action-packed Seers epic fantasy series. If you like mythical shifters, courageous heroes, and dark prophecies, then you’ll love Sherry Leclerc’s spellbinding adventure.
She’s a seer with trust issues. But her terrifying visions will force her to put faith in a fearless creature.
Talwyn Sevi would rather be lonely than endure another tragic loss. With disturbing visions of a dark legion closing in, the Seer fears any friendship is doomed to end in heartbreak. But unless she can persuade a reclusive tribe of dragon shifters to help her safeguard the magical power source, there might not be anyone left to love…
Can Talwyn secure the dragons’ aid before a ruthless warmonger enslaves her realm?
The Dragon Shifters at Southgate is the second book in the gripping Seers epic fantasy series. If you like fearless warriors, breathtaking landscapes, and impossible odds, then you’ll love Sherry Leclerc’s captivating tale.
