Spells of the Curtain Book 5 Released!

I’ve been remiss in announcing the latest release but seeing as I’ve begun work on book 6 in earnest, I suppose it’s a good idea to formally announce the release of book 5, Traveling Mage, on this blog.

Yes, book 5 of the Spells of the Curtain series is live, and it has a LOT of adventure in it, considering its small size.

Edmath and his allies travel to the northern coast of the empire to investigate a strange sign. What they find has the possibility to change everything going forward.

If you haven’t picked up the other books in the series now is as a good a time as ever. Check out the series page here.

I always mean to post more here, but I hope you will indulge the brevity I have here. There is fiction to be written, and I must get back to it.

Thanks for reading!

Spells of the Curtain – Garden Mage is out and about!

Hey folks!

Hope the image isn’t repetitive for you, but I am writing to formally announce the launch of Garden Mage!

Garden Mage is book 4 of the Spells of the Curtain series, following the adventures of Edmath and his fellow mages as they get into trouble working in the Empire of Zel.

I took far too long to write this book, not least of all because I wrote another short book in about a week between the prior book’s release and this one. I apologize for being late. This will be the last time I overestimate my ability to keep the schedule, and also the last time I fall behind.

Thanks for your support and assistance, and I hope you will check out the series. It’s a real labor of love for me, and I’m thrilled reception has been as good as its been.

Thanks for reading! I’ll be back soon with more status reports and general ramblings.

More than 7 Minutes to Winter…

Before I get writing fiction today, I figured it’d be a good time to announce the book of mine that launched yesterday. Yep, book 3 of the Spells of the Curtain Series is out now! It’s called Winter Mage and covers the rest of the original novel I wrote over nine years ago. The story doesn’t end in this one, but a new arc begins. No spoilers, but I love this book and I’m gonna love the next one

You know, I used to write these blog posts in the same program I write books in, Scrivener. I don’t know why I stopped, but here we are. I like typing straight into the posting window. It feels more immediate somehow.

Also, my glasses broke this morning. I just picked them up and it’s a good thing I had a backup pair because one of the parts that hangs over an ear (Arms? Is that what you call them?) broke off. I’ll get them fixed or replaced soon, but the only reason I can see to type this is my older glasses now perched on my nose. It’s oddly present to me how fragile my sight really is these days. I can navigate outside without glasses, but good luck indoors.

Anyway, I am very excited for how well my books are doing out there right now. Compared to a lot of people I’m just now seeing a little success, but I’m grateful for all of it. One step at a time, folks. One step at a time.

Well, the timer never started, but I think I’m getting there. That sure seems to be the way of things today.

Thanks for reading.

Talk to you again soon.

 

New Release – Battle Mage


I hope you’re ready for a new book!

That’s right, Spells of the Curtain 2: Battle Mage is out today! I briefly mentioned this on my facebook page and personal page earlier today. This story has been a long time in the making, just like book one. I am thrilled to finally be releasing these books and the future ones in this series.
Anyway, I am totally brain-fried today, but here is the link to the book again.

Thanks for reading.

7 Minutes to a Conspiracy

Well, folks, it happened. Yesterday the third book in my Root Conspiracy series released on Amazon.com.

Image Storm is a rereleased of a little novella once called The Bright Image, but it’s here. I really struggled writing this boo, but I’m happy it’s out there, and I really enjoy where it takes the story of Jeth and his friends. The original version of this series really did not get out there very well, so I’m trying to emphasize the genre elements. IE: The post-apocalyptic setting, and the weird future I imagined in them.

If that sounds interesting to you, click the image above and check out the series. I’m really happy with them, and with book 4, which should be out on August 21st. Thanks for your attention.

Writing on book four has been tough to get started. I encountered some serious resistance trying to devise the structure and form the story should take as I proceed in a direction I think people will enjoy. The story is flowing now, but I had to brainstorm a lot of ideas to get things rolling.

All eyes and buys are appreciated. Thank you all so much for any attention and support you have for me. Rock on, folks. Thanks for reading.

And buzzer.

 

7 Minutes to Book 2!

Hi people! Above you can see the cover for the second book in the Spells of the Curtain series.

Of the first three books in this series, I have to say this one is probably my personal favorite. We go from high to low and all over in between in this story. The work in this part didn’t feel like work at all. That’s the best kind of writing for me when the real world and words disappear and I’m somewhere else, discovering what happened in this other place with its own rules. That doesn’t happen often for me. In the past ten years, maybe 2-3 books felt that way.

I recently started reading a book by James Scott Bell called “The Mental Game of Writing.” In this book, Bell discusses a side of playful creativity at a few points. So far, my favorite delve into this subject refers to play as chaos, a lawless freedom to write whatever the writer wants at that moment. However, one must always restore order for the readers’ sakes later on. I think that’s true. I also think I managed to coordinate play and order well in book two, out next Tuesday!

Also, book one is out today! Click here to get it right now!
