About the Book
Respect is often one of the most difficult things to find when setting out on a new path. It’s not any easier being a Halfling, but Eron is determined to achieve his dream of being a ranger.
Following the death of Reinhart, Eron is duty-bound to follow through on his dream. The one thing he never expected was to be challenged at every turn by those who he met along the way. From shape shifters and old men, to a one-eyed Dwarf and a secretive Elf, he quickly learns not everything is as it appears.
Success is won one step at a time in Building A Legend. Coming November 15.
My second release is the third novel in the Sword and the Flame series (Not YA), The Lightwalker coming November 22.

Will the prophesized Lightwalker rise before the world is destroyed by a ancient conflict?

About the Author
CP Bialois’ love of words began as a small child when his father bought a stack of comics to teach him the reading skills he wasn’t mastering in class. Before long, he was reading at an advanced level and teachers were shaking their heads over the unconventional method.
Growing up in the ‘80s, Bialois was exposed to even further inspiration through the popular cartoons of the day. Transformers, in particular, sparked his imagination and led to him put his first stories on paper. After a decades-long break, Bialois began getting back into the world of writing by joining some role-playing groups. These groups taught him about fleshing out characters and building worlds that stuck with him as he began writing short stories for fun.
To his surprise, Bialois would end up completing his first full-length novel, Call of Poseidon, in 2007. Armed with a finished product, Bialois began working on another book, The Sword and the Flame, unsure of what he would ultimately be doing with either. As with many others in the later part of the first decade of the 2000’s, he found himself out of work and looking into new options. Over the next two years, he would spend most days at the library, completing an additional half-dozen works.
Six books later, Bialois is planning for the release of many more and enjoying the feedback he receives. The up-and-coming author takes inspiration from favorites such as Steven King, Tom Clancy and Sue Grafton. His love of history, fantasy and old monster movies has also served as a muse.
When he’s not busy writing or chatting on his social networks, Bialois enjoys watching hockey and football as well as Metallica DVDs. He currently lives with his wife- a fellow writer- and their fur children. CP Bialois is also active in several South Florida writing groups, as well as the online writer community, and the Florida Writers Association.
