Weekly Update: Chains of Fate Delayed; New Release Schedule; Stories in the First Collection

Hello all!

Things have been really up and down, so I have not been able to post as many updates as I would like. The work has not been stymied, but there are a few things to go over.

First and foremost, I unfortunately have to delay the release of Chains of Fate from December 15 to late winter / early spring. Chains of Fate has blossomed into something much bigger than I ever imagined, and if I were to release it on schedule, it would be a poor representation of what the work could be. I do apologize for delay, but when you get your hands on the novel, it will be a much more finished product.

In light of that, here is the new release schedule for my upcoming works:

  • The Prelude to Darkness: A Short Story Collection — February / March 2018
  • Chains of Fate: A Novel — May / June 2018
  • Warriors of Fate: A Short Story Collection — September / October 2018
  • Unbreakable Will: A Novel — December 2018
  • Fates Entwined: A Short Story Collection — February / March 2019
  • Transcendent: A Novel — May / June 2019

Pre-orders will be available roughly one month before release.

Now, what is in the first short story collection, The Prelude to Darkness? In short, all of the short and serialized stories I have been publishing online for free, but polished and refined, in paperback and e-Book form. There will also be two serialized series included that have not been in the online offering. The included stories are:

  1. The Dark God (3 part series)
  2. The Indomitable (10 part series)
  3. The White Walls
  4. Rise of the Corsair (5 part series)
  5. Terror of the Black Storm (4 part series)
  6. Birth of Madness (5 part series)

That is six series and twenty-eight short stories in total. I plan to retail the entire collection for $0.99 USD (e-Book only). The paperback cost will be determined when the final word count is in.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Release Dates for Novels and Short Story Collections

It has been a long week—and a week where I have not felt my best, but I have some very exciting updates that I want to share.

I am very happy to announce targeted release dates for all of my upcoming book projects. This is my much talked about quarterly release schedule.

Chains of Fate: A Novel—December 14, 2017

The Prelude to Darkness: A Short Story Collection—March 16, 2018

Unbreakable Will: A Novel—June 15, 2018

Warriors of Fate: A Short Story Collection—September 14, 2018

Transcendent: A Novel—December 14, 2018

Fates Entwined: A Short Story Collection—March 15, 2019

These six titles will be available in both paperback and e-book formats. Pre-order information, synopsis’, and included content will be provided closer to each subsequent release.

Although, I will provide some information concerning the first two releases on the schedule.

Chains of Fate occurs seven years after the events of Darkness Rising. It is the first of a planned trilogy that closely follows Aerona Harkan, Daniel Baccan, Tristifer Marcanas, and the fell sorcerer, Lord Eldred.

The realm has known peace since the clash between the Bringers of Dusk and Dawn, but peace never lasts long: powers long thought defeated emerge, and the very doom that prophecy foretold millennia ago shall arise, though not in the way that any thought possible. Heroes must rise once more, but how the Great Fate shall churn, none living can foresee.

The Prelude to Darkness will be my first short story collection that I will be offering. The collection will include many of the stories that I have offered (and will continue to) on my website, but much more refined, organized chronologically, with introductions and appendixes. The collection will include the following stories: The Dark God, The Paragon, Sworn to the Cloth, Rise of the Corsair, The Terror of the Black Storm, The Birth of Madness, and many more. I will also be releasing short stories that have never been posted online, featuring the characters of Father Stephen Francis, High Priestess Lutessa, Rafael Azail, Emperor Archelaus, and others.

I am incredibly excited to bring readers all of this content.

Also: tomorrow I will be releasing The Dark God, Part II: The Summoning at 5:00pm EST.
