Weekly Update: Chronicle of the Realm, The Prelude to Darkness Cover, The Indomitable Release Schedule

Hello readers!

I am pleased to announce that beginning in March I will unveil my newest website feature, Chronicle of the Realm. This will essentially be an encyclopedia of my work’s mythology, history, countries, groups, people, and places. Most of what it will contain you can discern from reading my books, but there will also be new information that supplements understanding of particulars that the books do not cover. This feature will be added to every Wednesday. Continue reading Weekly Update: Chronicle of the Realm, The Prelude to Darkness Cover, The Indomitable Release Schedule

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!

Weekly Update: The Indomitable

Hello all!

It has been a busy couple of weeks and there is a lot I want to discuss today, starting with The Indomitable. Simply put, not since Aerona Harkan has a character enthralled me more than Justine Deuvers. I originally intended for The Indomitable to be a four part series that would explain her origins, detail her meeting with Prophet Gabriel, and whence she lead Dalia’s forces against the Darkness. All of that content is still on the table, but it will be done much more expansively. I am still planning the back end of the narrative, but it would not surprise me if we reach part ten of The Indomitable. Thus Terror of the Black Storm and Birth of Madness series are being pushed to early 2018. They are stories that will still be included when I publish A Prelude to Darkness in March 2018, but I think there is a tremendous opportunity to delve deeply into an amazing character and journey in Justine Duvan.
