My short story releases continue next Friday with the first part of The Indomitable series that will span the next four (or more!) weeks. The story follows the principle events in the life of the first Voice, Justine Deuvers, and the crucibles that earned her the title ‘Indomitable.’ For those who have read Darkness Rising from cover to cover, you know that Justine lived three hundred years before the events of my first novel. Thus there will be plenty of new characters, characters that you have read references of, and perhaps some returning characters too.
Following that, there will be two more serialized entries that will take us into December (where I will stop pushing short stories so I can finish Chains of Fate for release on December 15). The first of these entries is titled Terror of the Black Storm. This series will focus entirely on the Isilian Imperium, and eventually, the war with Dalia that occurs before Darkness Rising. The Birth of Madness series will follow afterward, and those stories will visit the Trechtian invasion of Dalia from the perspective of the Marcanas brothers.
Also, please do consume the short stories before January 2018—for I will be taking them all down then. I will give all those stories a heavy edit pass as I prepare them for my first short story collection, A Prelude to Darkness. I will offer more details as we get closer to the March 16, 2018 release date (and not the least of which will be the additional content outside of the short stories).
