UNCONQUERED SON: Coming June 2013

Unconquered SonAfter a bit of blog silence (writing under another name) I’m back with great news. My new novel, UNCONQUERED SON, will be available in June 2013.

The Empire teeters on the brink of collapse. A hedonistic teen assumes the throne under false pretenses while a slave rebellion erupts in the north. The southern King of Kings, sensing weakness, sets his eyes on his vulnerable foe.

In the midst of the growing tumult, a young man from the Empire’s hinterlands grudgingly heads to Imperial City. There, Claudio-Valens sees firsthand the weak, treasonous Imperial Council that aids foreign enemies, and finds himself at the center of the fight to save the country he loves.

What follows is a tale of desert queens and legionaries, of mad girls with great gifts and scheming highborn ladies, of gods both human and divine, that will forever transform the world they know.

I’m still making tweaks to the cover, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up!

Dragon’s Son (final book of the trilogy) released

DragonssoncoverAs newsletter subscribers already know, I recently released the final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy. I had a blast writing it, and am happy to lead the story to its inevitable conclusion, but at the same time, a bit sad about leaving the characters and the world. Either way, here is the description.

Buy at AmazonKobo, and Nook:

The Ulfr conquest is complete. The towns of Badelgard lie destroyed, abandoned, or suffering under the rule of Fell Lords and their dark ladies. Against all odds, Kai Riverhall—the Dragon’s Son—seeks to put an end to the Great Witch and her eternal winter.

The final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy narrates three distinct lives.

In MY BROTHER THE MORGUIS, a man meets his long-lost sibling but begins to question his true identity. In QUEEN OF NOTHING, the new High Queen attempts to evacuate all survivors to another land. And in DRAGON’S SON, Kai makes one last effort to defeat the Great Witch before the statue of her goddess is fully pulled from its icy tomb.

Enchanted Forest, Volume 1 — now complete

I’m happy to announce that the first volume (episodes 1 to 5) of Enchanted Forest is now complete, available for purchase at all ebook vendors (except Smashwords… the slow reporting and slow uploading procedures currently frustrate me to no end, but I’ll get around to it soon).

Sales on this series started out (very) tepid, but are slowly picking up. Go forth, buy, and read, and give me the encouragement to start Volume 2! My mind brims with ideas for more episodes.

The first episode is free on Kobo.

I also made a profile of Kalamar, for those interested.

Available Now: High Queen, Book II of the Ulfr Crisis

 High Queen, the sequel to Fell Winter and the second book of the trilogy, is now available now on Amazon, Kobo, and Nook.

Alysse Riverhall sails to her native land, vowing to return with an army of knights. While Sigmund sits on the throne, Kenna Wildsaber calls up spirits of darkness to aid her ambitions. The undead Great Witch of the Ulfr plots and waits for her chance. But only one of them can be HIGH QUEEN.

While humans battle for the throne, the Ulfr rise in the flesh, marching under the banner of the Frozen Skull. Soon they reach the home of Kai Riverhall, junior member of the Order of Scouts: a young man with a rare gift. The blood of the Green Dragon.

The next episode – Enchanted Forest #4

Even in Varda, people take time to celebrate the dark, frightening aspects of existence. In time for Halloween, here is the fourth episode of the Enchanted Forest series, “Hagflight.”

Ep. 4: Hagflight

The festival of All Hallows comes to Kalamar. Norgs don masks to honor Dibbhal, the Bogey Man. Meanwhile, Pirosha’s friend Imowyn notices the full moon, shining bright.

She promptly informs him that whenever All Hallows and a full moon coincide, a fascinating astrological event called the Hagflight can be seen in the sky from the top of Mount Doogan. But bogeys, malevolent spirits from the dark side of Faerie, stalk the shadowy path that leads to it.

“Episode 5: Invasion” and the omnibus will arrive in November.
