Thunder o Dragon released today!

To me, 2021 feels like a year in which international news is depressing and good news is very hard to come by. If you are going through a tough time, my thoughts are with you. That's one reason I chose to write the Call me Dragon series - a largely lighthearted, humorous fantasy which does address some topical issues, but with levity, I hope!

Thunder o Dragon
Today I am delighted to announce the release of the third and final volume in the hilarious misadventures of a Dragon called Dragon, who had the good fortune to kidnap himself a black Princess.

Of course, he had no idea what he was taking on ...

Thunder o Dragon finds this mismatched pair taking on the might of the Skartunese war host together with an unlikely cast of friends. Sea Dragons knocking about in the desert? An old gladiator Dragon with a love of rolling over his enemies? A bloodthirsty, sharpshooting Princess with an even sharper tongue?

It's time to ROAR with laughter!

Thunder o Dragon is available in all Kindle Stores and on Kindle Unlimited. The Print edition should be available shortly.

The first book Call me Dragon is discounted to $1.99 for the month of July as an Amazon book of the month. Join thousands of delighted readers in this side-splitting adventure!

Watch out for your funny bone - I am Dragon is here!

I am Dragon Release Day!

It's time to put down your coffee - carefully - before you pick up I am Dragon, the second hilarious volume in my Dragon Fires Rising series.

I am Dragon - Book cover
The second hilarious, epic volume in Dragon Fires Rising follows the rollercoaster adventures of a misfiring Dragon and a feisty black Princess.

Having been kicked into shape by his captive Princess, the Dragon formerly called Blitz has new fires and a new name. He is a Dragon – imaginatively – called Dragon. Now, he must discover who he is.

Simple, right?

As simple as a Dragon shedding his own scales.

With war looming, the intrepid pair decide to fly over the Tamarine Mountains and across the oceans to the Island Archipelago where Azania’s long-time love awaits, hoping to recruit an army of fierce warrior Dragonesses. Can the Princess rescue his King? Will Dragon find his true family and avoid losing his head – literally – over his interest in Aria Seaspray?

I am delighted to bring you this side-splitting fantasy epic. Available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited and in Print version in all Amazon stores.

Call me Dragon is also now available in Audio, and the performance by Kyle Westmaas is a real treat. Grab your copy today! We're currently working on recording audio for I am Dragon as well. More news in due course.

Call me Dragon Tour and Giveaway!


Call Me Dragon
Dragon Fires Rising Book 1
by Marc Secchia
Genre: Humorous Fantasy

Call me Dragon. It’s the last thing you’ll ever do.

Blitz the Devastator has never done a decent day’s devastating in his life. Fireless, artistic and shunned by his Dragon Clan, he struggles to pillage even the meanest village. A future full of misery and failure beckons.

This much is true until the day the burly brown Dragon successfully – imagine that – kidnaps the Princess Azania. As a black Princess of T’nagru, this spirited beauty is by definition the most unforgettable woman in the seventeen realms. Knights errant, men-at-arms and sundry Princes expire at her feet in drivelling worship.

Unfortunately, they all want his scaly head on a platter shortly thereafter. Goes with the territory.

To Blitz’s consternation, the royal nuisance refuses to behave herself and be a typical pampered Princess. With humour, unconventional flair and the odd stomp of her diminutive slipper, she sets out to reform her Dragon.

One question remains. Who will save the Dragon from the Princess?

Marc is a South African-born dragon masquerading as an author, who loves writing about dragons and Africa, preferably both at the same time. He's the author of 25 fantasy books in 5 languages including 10 rip-roaring dragon fantasy bestsellers. Dragonfriend won a Gold Award for Fantasy in the 2016 IPPY Book Awards.
When he's not writing about Africa or dragons Marc can be found travelling to remote locations. He thinks there's nothing better than standing on a mountaintop wondering what lies over the next horizon.

Call me Dragon released

Call me Dragon. It's the last thing you'll ever do!

I had so much fun writing this tale, I can hardly tell you. The inspiration was the cover, which I found while browsing for something quite different.
Blitz the Devastator is a fireless, lonely dragon who would rather be painting artworks than doing any actual devastating. One day, largely by accident, he kidnaps the Black Rose of the Desert, Princess Azania.
As a black Princess, she is by definition the most beautiful woman in the 17 realms. Knights swoon at her feet - which is awkward with a Dragon in the way. Unless they slay him first, of course.
Azania, being a less than conventional royal, promptly sets about arranging matters to her satisfaction.
Oh no! Who will save the Dragon from the Princess?

The Dragon Loremaster

I am delighted to announce the release of The Dragon Loremaster, Volume #2 in my award-winning Scrolls of Fire series, on August 9th.

What is darkness?

“How may a soul pine for that which it has never known? For a sightless person, to be seen is a miracle that defies imagination.”

Auli-Ambar, a girl born blind and with severe facial deformities, has risen from the ashes of her meagre beginnings to grasp a new destiny amongst the Dragons of Gi’ishior. Yet the scourge of her heritage burns lambent within her bones.

Many wish such an accursed creature nothing but ill; none could imagine the crucible of darkness through which she must pass. A crushing misfortune, an unthinkable diagnosis, a cabal of murderers and an impossible duality of magic that threatens to tear her apart, are only some of the challenges facing one who must defy all the odds to live.

She will journey to the soul’s very nadir, and find hope beyond. For Auli-Ambar is a survivor. Enigma. Protector of Dragons, and confidante of Arkurion the Mercury Blue. She is the Dragon Loremaster.

Let darkness flee!

Retweet to share the love, thanks!

The Dragon Loremaster is available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited from all Amazon stores.
