The Eighth Dwarf Cover & Back

“R.A. Goli takes what could otherwise be a utterly unsympathetic character and injects him with a palpable humanity, highlighting how a person’s self-interest (and selfish desires) can blind you to the true nature of the people around you despite all of the evidence.” Matthew X. Gomez

Blacksmith Tiberius is dissatisfied with his lot in life. Convinced he deserves more, he’s become resentful of the other dwarves. He’s motivated by coin, and to a lesser extent women and power. A chance encounter with a beautiful and mysterious witch, whose plans include the removal of the current queen, result in an unlikely partnership. 

Soon he’s living the life he’d always dreamt of, whoring and drinking to his heart’s content, far away from the cramped cabin he’d shared with the other dwarves. But after an unexpected connection with a young princess named Snow White, and as the witch’s demands become more extreme, Tiberius questions the strength of their friendship and wonders how far he’s willing to go for titles and riches.

The Eighth Dwarf  available at Amazon (kindle) and Fantasia Divinity Magazine‘s store (print). Here’s the Australian link for Amazon.
