Writing Update

Wow, I haven’t updated the blog in a while. Sorry about that.

After last month’s book launch and big giveaway, many new readers are discovering the world of Antises! If you’re one of those readers, welcome! You’re in the right place. You can also see more short posts from me on my Facebook author page. And the best way to keep up to date is with my newsletter. (Plus, you get FREE stories.) Sign up. All the cool kids are doing it.

Here’s an update on how things are going with my books here at the midpoint of this year:

Incarnadine – the editing on the sequel to Viridia has been slow lately, because I’ve been focusing more on writing. I’ll need to pick up the pace, because it will be time to start writing the third book before long!

Until All The Stars Fall – I am smack-dab in the middle of writing the climax of this book… which is really the climax of the entire Heart of Fire series. I’m definitely feeling the pressure here. I’ve already re-written several scenes, moved some characters around, and panicked over parts of it. But it’s coming together now. I hope. If I keep on schedule, the first draft will be done in just a couple of weeks.

You can see the progress bars over on the right column of this website. I keep them updated most of the time.

In the meantime, I’ll try to find time to write something more interesting here.

Oops – Kindle Unlimited

I messed up. Somehow, I failed to click the one little button that made Until All The Gods Return available on Kindle Unlimited at its launch. I have corrected that now, but Amazon takes a while to process it. If you were looking for that particular option, please be patient. It’s coming!

Launch Day! Free Book!

Until All The Gods Return is officially available today wherever you buy books! And to celebrate, the first book in the Heart of Fire series, Until All Curses Are Lifted, is absolutely FREE on Amazon all this week! What are you waiting for? Start reading!

Chapter Four and More

If you’ve been following along on the weekly reveals, you’ll be happy to know that you can now read chapter four of Until All The Gods Return right here. Jamana says farewell (for now) to his mysterious traveling companion, and then runs right into some very familiar faces…

Less than a week remains until the book launches next Tuesday! And here’s big news: all next week, May 24-28, the first book in the series, Until All Curses Are Lifted, will be absolutely FREE to download and read on Kindle! Yes, free! Am I out of my mind? Maybe. But you should still take advantage of this, and tell everyone you know. Here’s a handy graphic:

Read Chapter Three of Until All The Gods Return

Less than two weeks until the release day! And now you can read the third chapter of Until All The Gods Return, the third book in the Heart of Fire series.

COVER REVEAL – Until All the Gods Return

Releasing on May 25, 2021! Here’s the cover for book three in the Heart of Fire series, Until All the Gods Return. Available for pre-order now!

A New Short Story!

I promised it last year, and it’s finally here.

I’ve written a short story tie-in with Viridia and the Dragontek Lore series. The character Richard Onyx shows up out of nowhere in chapter one of Viridia. He’s reluctant to speak about his past, though he admits to being part of a previous rebellion in the city of Atramentous.

This is the story of Rick’s final day in Atramentous. The end of one rebellion and the beginning of a new one. Before he can leave Atramentous, Rick must deal with the deadly wrath of the draconic, Naram-Sin Black…

There’s only one way to read this story, along with the Heart of Fire tie-in story, The Leper’s Second Kill. Sign up for my newsletter! Not only will you get links to both of those stories, but you’ll be able to keep up with all of my news about writing and other stuff, and you’ll get regular special offers for other books!

Another Book!

Just a quick note here. Today, I finished writing the first draft of Incarnadine, book two of the Dragontek Lore series! I think fans of Beryl and his dragon-fighting team will enjoy this second (absolutely bonkers) journey into the cities of The Circle.

That means I currently have two books in the editing process! Until All the Gods Return is getting closer to the completion of that step, and I’m hoping to release it in May. (Psst. The cover is awesome!)

What will I write tomorrow? I have that short story tie-in for Dragontek Lore that I really, really need to finish. Why do short stories take me longer than novels?

And I need to plot out the fourth and final book of Heart of Fire before I start actually writing it. So much to do!
