Ink Smith Publishing is honored to announce our congratulations to our author Alec Arbogast! His novel, The Last Odinian, has been selected as a finalist in the International Book Awards, sponsored by American Book Fest.
“I’m truly honored, humbled, excited, and frankly, somewhat baffled to announce that my book was just announced as a finalist in the 2018 International Book Awards! I was chosen alongside 4 other finalists and a winner in the Horror Fiction category. Life’s been a whirlwind for the last few months and I don’t think this has really hit me yet, but it’s more than I could ever ask for from my debut novel! Congratulations to the other finalists, this is a very exciting time!” Arbogast posted on his Facebook page.
The Last Odinian placed as a finalist in the Fiction: Horror genre. He was selected alongside winner, Knuckle Balled by Drew Stepek (Blood Bound Books), Antitheus by G.A. Minton (World Castle Publishing), Eve of Redemption by Tom Mohan (BHC Press), Stage 3 by Ken Stark (Severed Press), and The Eyes Have No Soul by Matthew W. Harrill (Creativia).
The Last Odinian now has the pleasure of the Reader’s Favorite seal, noting 5 Stars! We are so proud of Alec and all of his hard work to bring The Last Odinian to life. This suspenseful, fantasy-driven novel with a touch of a dangerous cult is the perfect late night read. Arbogast’s creates an eerie, edge-of-your-seat adventure with twists of Scandinavian lore that tests the devotion of a man to his family. The story focuses in on Edward Koenig, not your average “hero” but instead, a man who has come to a crossroads in his familial life. Beginning his journey to find answers to his past, Pinemist Bay holds the scary truth of his future. The pacing is solid, the world building is near-perfect, and the creativity is astounding!
