Flame Wind and the upcoming Ice War

Hey everyone!

I  have been a bit remiss in posting over the past month or so. This issue did not arise from a single problem but originated in a combination of depression, anxiety, and fatigue. I have never exactly been regular in my moods, but January seriously saw me down at times. Well, things are on the upswing again.

I am working on the third book in The Pillar Universe series, which is going pretty well at the moment. That book is entitled, Ice War, and marks the finale of the original story I wrote in this universe a few years ago.

After this, I will continue the series with more books, because I really have fallen for these characters and I’m confident more people will feel the same way.

In related news, I have the second book, Flame Wind out and never really announced it officially. Consider it official.

Thanks for reading. I will be back sooner rather than later.

Delay of Release

Hi everyone!

Sorry for not blogging as much as planned. Honestly, though my mental health has been improving I’m still far from tough in that (Or really any) arena. I don’t have any other excuse for taking so long to edit book 2 of the Pillar Universe series.

After I sent Storm Fleet to the proofreader I took a week to start writing a different story for fun. While I enjoyed the writing, that may have been a mistake as it pushed back the release of Flame Wind, book two in the series when combined with my general difficulty in writing additional scenes for the story.

Anyway, I’m pleased to say that Flame Wind is currently with the proofreader and I will have it published as soon as I get it back and make any necessary changes. Thanks for your patience, especially if you picked up book one. I fully intended to release book two on January 19th (My birthday, incidentally) but through my own slowness that became impossible. Thanks for reading, and I hope 2019 treats you all as well as it possibly can.

Talk to you soon, and have a cover reveal for Flame Wind while you’re here.

What I Released this Year in Seven Minutes

Hi folks!

It’s the Holiday Season, and though I’ve been known to grinch it up in my personal life from time to time, I actually kinda like December despite the cold that pervades these parts.

Also, it’s this time of year I look back on what I did in the past 12 months. I’m pretty happy with the progress I made in my writing and publishing career.

First of all, I released Tenlyres III and a new edition of the complete tale. Things get a little muddled for me after that as I worked on Clean/Root Conspiracy Stories which haven’t done very well in attracting an audience. I finished and released four stories in that series, but sadly I don’t think they’re resonating with enough people despite good reviews.

However, I also released six novellas in my Spells of the Curtain fantasy series, and those have attracted a bit of an audience. I’m happy with how they’ve done.

I released my first stab at a military science fiction story in Titan Games: Sacrifice, but I think future stories in that universe will have to be novels just because of how I want to handle things.

Last but not least, I have one more launch coming this year. On December 19th the first book in my Pillar Universe series will release. Entitled “Storm Fleet” I look forward to seeing how it connects with space opera readers, especially.

So, save the date. Have some links.

Fire Mage is almost here… but not yet

Fire Mage is proving a beastly challenge, even now. I can promise it will both shock and entertain when I release it, however 🙂 I haven’t been this excited for a Curtain book since the first one dropped. Not much longer, and it will. be worth the wait.

Hey, thanks for reading!

In the meantime, don’t forget to check out my other books in the series if you haven’t already.

Here is the series page on Amazon.

Talk to you again soon!

The Forgotten Book Sale

Hi everyone!

Just checking in because I forgot to mention this yesterday… but about half of the books in my Spells of the Curtain series are currently on sale for 99 cents US-American. The sale is on books 4 and 5, so if you’ve read book 1, this is a good time to pick up the rest.

Here is a link to the series page.

If you like fantasy you won’t regret picking these up.

Thanks for reading.

Back soon!

Spells of the Curtain Book 6 Update

Spells of the Curtain Book  6, Fire Mage is going to be long, and likely going to become a novel, rather than a novella.

There. Thought I’d get the big shift in news out of the way first. The book just doesn’t want to be contained into 100 pages, and it may be even longer than book one in the end.

I struggled with this fact for a while, but I think it’s for the best. As a result, it will take a little more time to release, but I should definitely have it out this month, alongside another book in a new science fiction series, and a short story or two for my military space opera series, Titan Games.

Happy NaNoWriMo to all fellow writers. This seven-minute blog is dedicated to you, whether you’re new to the craft or old hands at it.

Thanks for reading.

I have some time left, so allow me to be clear about something else.

I have had some serious depressive phases recently, mostly relating to the book and my failure to get really deep into it as a novella. I’m getting better with some help from my friends, but it’s always tough to handle these flare-ups. If you suffer from depression, get help. Your mind is 90% of what you’ve got in most cases.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully I’ll be back soon with good news and new books.

This blog has been a seven-minute sprint. Check the links for my podcast if you want to hear more, and as always check out my books if you want to support me or just read some good speculative fiction.
