The month came and went too quickly. For me, this is the time to reflect upon the best memories from your childhood. It’s funny, but my main memories are the moments of anticipation, the tree in the same corner of the living room near the fireplace, and the trips to my grandparent’s houses. The presents I received are barely recalled. I hope my son has similar memories in his future.
Well, it’s close to another Christmas (and my links to 50% off printed books are below).
Latest news: I’m wrapping up work on two more books (hopefully to be complete by end of the year). Here are their working titles and a short description about the stories. You can find
The Bleeding Mountains: A Clovel Sword Saga (click link to read the first two draft chapters on Wattpad)
This is Saga #4 and a full book of Urith’s adventures in the time before the Clovel Sword Chronicles. Not long after the death of his wife and father, the Esterblud warrior travels into the kingdom of Rarfell as a volunteer to fight against a tribe known as the Borrs. Before he joins the volunteers, the capital city is overrun and the king killed.
In a series of twists and turns, Urith finds himself escaping with the young queen and a new comrade. However, their freedom is short lived and Urith nearly dies. Returning to kill his betrayer, the Esterblud must grapple with his need for vengeance and the honorable ideals to help those in need. To make things worse, Urith finds himself in unfamiliar waters of diplomacy trying to stop an embittered queen from causing a war between his homeland and the powerful kingdom of Cahmais.
Shadow Over Charax – A new fantasy book. (click link to read the first two draft chapters on Wattpad)
It is a world where the necromancer, Pirwa, extends his power over the remaining kingdoms using the cruel butchery of his undead ‘gravers’. Pirwa plans to unleash his hordes upon the last two bastions of those who follow the ways of the Chara.
The fortress island of Charax is one spot that stands in the way of the necromancer. However, the fortress is much like the society, a decaying symbol of the past. Strict social and economic stratification allows the Chara to control the island along with the help of pirates who dominate the waters.
When an offer of quick wealth leads Hilko, a young smuggler, into his betrayal. The man uses his ability to communicate with ghosts to aid in his escape. Ending up on a ship filled with pirates, Hilko slowly understands the power of the object he’s stolen. In his quest to avoid the ‘gravers’ and comrades with ulterior motives, Hilko discovers that true friendship and loyalty can come from any social class, living and dead.

As part of my efforts to engage my readers more directly, I’ve started using Wattpad to reveal my drafts as I work on a couple of books. You can find some of my finished works out there as well. I’m using just rudimentary covers for the drafts and the editing is a work in progress. However, if you’re interested in my process for writing, just stop by and give me your feedback.
I’m always interested in your thoughts and suggestions.
