Mountain Springs House Blog Tour: Week 1 - Introduction

My publisher (it feels so awesome to say that!) is having its first annual blog tour. Every week, the Mountain Springs House authors are given a topic to write about. As well as posting their own stuff, they will do guest posts on other author's blogs as well. Next week I will be posting on Pamela Foreman's blog.

Visit the Mountain Springs House blog for information about the tour, as well as the blog addresses of the different authors. Also visit and "like" the Mountain Springs House Facebook page  and share, that way you can be kept up-to-date on everything MSH is doing

So, here we go with my post. Here's a brief bio on me: An author and freelance writer, Cody L. Martin grew up in the beautiful mountains of Wyoming where he became an avid sci-fi fan. He wrote his first Star Trek fan fiction in high school and has since been branched out into sci-fi and action stories. Cody wrote his first novel Adventure Hunters in the same vein. He currently writes the monthly Star Trek column To Boldly Go… for In Genre. He works in Japan as a part-time English teacher in Yamaguchi Prefecture, and lives happily with his beautiful wife, Yoko. When he isn't writing he enjoys watching movies, reading and listening to Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, C-ute, and other J-pop singers.

And here is the blurb for Adventure Hunters: Artorius, Regina, and Lisa, are three adventurers who explore ruins and ancient buildings looking for treasures. Most of the time, they're just trying to make ends meet. But when they explore a town rampaged by goblins, they get more than they bargained for. They uncover a cache of ancient war golems, powerful weapons of destruction once thought to be only myths. Soon, they are in a quest for the Lambda Driver, the key to the golems's activation. But they aren't the only ones, and they will have to defy their own king to find it first. If King Ryvas has his way, he will unleash the golems's destructive power on the neighbouring kingdom. The adventurers's quest will take them from mountains to poisoned valleys and enchanted forests but they must hurry. Where is the Lambda Driver? What secret do the golems hold? And why does their friend Regina seem to be in the midst of it all? 

I'm a little bit new to blog tours, so what I'm expecting to get out of this is different perspectives about writing in general from many of these talented authors. Hopefully I'll pick up tips and bits of wisdom to help me in my own writing.

As always, thanks for reading!


  1. Nice job, Cody--from one newbie to another. I will have to forward your post to my sister-in-law--she is a huge Star Trek fan.

  2. Thanks, Ellie. Kathy Ree, keep looking forward to To Boldly Go… I'm hoping to have some interesting stuff coming up.
