Rise to Glory is the latest LitRPG release from author Alex Knight. It’s available to listen to via audible. Alex grew up a sun-baked, outdoorsy Floridian and has lived in several places around the world.
As an author of LitRPG and Fantasy, his work includes the Nova Online Trilogy. In the past, Alex has worked as everything from a dishwasher at Busch Gardens to the Communications Coordinator at the Florida Attractions Association.
After deciding he didn’t like stability or predictable paychecks he made the jump to being a freelance writer. Soon that turned into ghost-writing romance novellas, then ghost-writing full-blown science fiction novels, and finally, writing his own books. Previous work includes The Far Wild.
Welcome to The Glory – the world’s biggest VR tournament.
In front of millions of viewers, teams compete in a battle royale where they clear dungeons, complete quests and slay other players in a race to score the most points.
The winners are instant celebrities, and it’s time Bash the Berserker joined their ranks. One win away from going pro, his dreams of fame, fortune and that iced coffee sponsorship are finally coming true…until he’s kicked off his team mere hours before registrations close.
With everything on the line, Bash manages to cobble together a new rag-tag team. A washed-up semi-pro who hates his guts, a talented analyst who’s never actually competed and a streamer whose ego is only surpassed by her love of throwing swords.
Oh, and if they want to earn their glory, Bash will have to trade in his war hammer and play as a three-foot-tall, tree-hugging elf….
