Son of the Dragon redo and new launch!

I have been re-examining some of my earlier works and thought that I should take a good hard look at The Netherworld Gate trilogy.

It is the first book that I ever wrote, and frankly it is technically the first one I ever published... It hit the shelves in 2006 -- only trouble was I had unwittingly published it with a vanity press. Still, I love the story, and not just because it's "my first" but also because I really like the main character. It's an anti-hero story plain and simple. Talon isn't like most of my other MCs, but that might also be why I like him so much. He does what he wants. He's capable of very dastardly deeds, and yet, he's still a human with deep-rooted emotional motives. He's a ton of fun -- well... he's also brutal, but hey, whatcha gonna do?

As I went through it again this spring while working on The Ghosts of Kobhir kick off, I decided that the story flowed much better as one massive book instead of three separate novels. If this one were to be printed in 5x8 like my other novels, the paperback would be over 1,100 pages long. That's like Goodkind length right there. For now it is only going to be available in e-book format, but I will at some point in the next few weeks create a collector 6x9 version (even the larger pages will still have it clocking in between 600-700).

If you have read the series and loved it, then please click on this link and leave a good review. If you haven't read it, and are looking for something different from me, then give this one a shot this summer. You may find that you will come to like Talon as well. ;)

Fun stuff for The Netherworld Gate fans

Here's another surprise for May -- Kelden and Yeoj are back in their own adventures.

If you read Winter's Ghost or the short series The Lost Heir then you are already familiar with this first volume as it blends the two together to begin the saga.

If you haven't read either Winter's Ghost or the short series while it was on my blog, then be ready to have some fun! The Ghosts of Kobhir is going to follow our two heroes as they continue to plot, scheme, and claw their way through whatever (or whoever) stands in the way of reclaiming their city. I guarantee you won't want to miss this action-packed novella, or the sequels to come.

Additionally, I am currently working on a novella prequel just for Talon -- so if you wanted to know a bit more about the deadly assassin before the events chronicled in Son of the Dragon, you will have your wish fulfilled very soon!

Cover reveal for the next Jonathan Haymaker book!

If you have been wondering what Jonathan Haymaker has been up to since the end of book 3 -- wonder no more! Book 4 is coming soon and ready to take you on an all new adventure.

Click here to pre-order your copy now!

It has been years since Jonathan last saw the strange guardian after returning home from Tanglewood Forest. His older brother is now expecting a child, and things at the farm have settled down.

Or so Jonathan thought...

When a letter arrives informing Jonathan that his dear friend Captain Ziegler has been murdered, he sets out to find answers.

The trouble is, a court prosecutor is coming with him, and she seems far more intent on proving Ziegler’s own guilt and destroying his legacy as a hero of the Troll Wars than worrying about who murdered him.

The deeper Jonathan digs, the more he realizes that Captain Ziegler may have led a double life before his time commanding the Ghosts of the Quags. Worse than that, evidence leads Jonathan to suspect his friend had returned to that life, and Ziegler's secret could prove disastrous if uncovered by the wrong people.

Jonathan must use his wits to stay three steps ahead of the prosecutor, and Ziegler’s murderers, in an adventure that becomes much more than a quest to defend his friend’s honor.

Pre-order A Land of Glass and Fire now, and prepare for Jonathan's most exciting tale yet!


And-- if you haven't yet started the Haymaker Adventures, then snag book one today for only $0.99!

Dinosaur hunting in May?

Sometimes you just have to take a fun trip!
If you're looking for this month's special announcements, you'll find those at the bottom, but first I wanted to share a little bit of what my family and I did recently. It was my wife's birthday and she has mentioned a few times over the last year that she would love to take the family out to Dinosaur National Park-- so as a surprise I booked a hotel and made it a weekend getaway!
Please enable images to view this content
It's hard to not get excited about dinosaurs in general -- but when you have five sons, it becomes a pretty fun trip. The weather was great and even from the first moment everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We stayed at the Dinosaur Inn and Suites, and I have to say it was fantastic. I didn't take pictures of their breakfasts -- but they do cook pancakes and eggs for you each morning as part of the deal. And, because it was my wife's birthday, they helped me put a few fun things in the room too, like dinosaur towels and a bouquet of flowers.Here are a few pictures of what we were up to.
Check out the Dinosaur Inn & Suites
Grid Item
Awww, dinosaur towels are snuggling on our bed... how cute.
Inside the quarry is a massive wall of dinosaur fossils which is a lot of fun for dinosaur enthusiasts.
Grid Item
Don't mind the milk -- that's for night time sippy cups for the little ones...And about 15 minutes away from the quarry is a fun little river where we spent part of the afternoon playing around.
It might be nerdy, but this was my favorite skeleton in the museum.Grid Item
They didn't just have dinosaurs to look at either...
And for those of you who like educational outings -- each of our kids got an activity packet about dinosaurs. Once they filled it out, a ranger checked their work and gave them fun little badges.
This was my favorite replica -- a massive 7 foot long sail fin.

Grid Item 

This shrimp cocktail was bigger than his head!
Some families build sand castle -- but my family builds rock forts!
And don't worry -- I still kept up with my goal of publishing something new each month. For April, I unveiled a prequel to The Dragon's Champion series.
It's called The Keeper of Secrets: Dragon Born, and is a full novella about Lepkin's legendary battle at Gelleirt Monastery.

Wren and the Ravens

The last little while I have been working on a super cool project with fellow author Eric Buffington.

If you aren't familiar with his work, then check out The Troven, which spent 50 weeks in the top 100 of its category on Amazon.

He brings a fun blend of humor to an all new adventure, set in an all new world. It has certainly made for an exciting project and I am positive you will all enjoy this one.

Without further ado.... (drum roll please) I give you:

It is said in Ryr that even when you seek peace, trouble often finds you.

For teenage Liden and his four friends, that is exactly what happens. No sooner do they run away from the mining town of Ryr to find freedom and adventure than they are thrust into events that mix them up with a notorious assassin known only as Wren.

Though the teenagers and assassin share neither goals nor values, they find themselves forced into cooperation in order to survive as they are caught up in the war raging along the Satine River that separates the northern and southern kingdoms.

How will Liden and his friends escape the war zone without making an enemy of Wren? Buy Wren and the Ravens today to find out!

Aikur's War

I am super excited for this one. Some of you die-hards out there might have read an abridged short story version of Aikur's War, but the plan had always been to put this one out as a full length novel.

I have been working on this story bit by bit over the last couple of years and bringing it to life and it's finally ready.

Fun fact-- Aikur's War is also mentioned in The Dragon's Champion series, and Aikur himself does a few things that affect the world long enough for Jonathan Haymaker when tromping around Tanglewood Forest as well. So, this isn't just a stand alone novel -- it's like a Russian nesting doll, opening up new layers of Terramyr that haven't been fully discovered yet by other stories. :)

What would drive a man to defy the gods?

Called out of retirement to defend his town, goblins soon prove to be the least of Aikur's worries when the fates conspire to pit the warrior against Hatmul, the ruler of hell, to retrieve the souls of his murdered wife and children.
Defeat would mean not only the loss of the war, but also condemn Aikur's soul to hell.
A wise man would turn and run... but Aikur has never run from a fight in his life.
If you love a skull-smashing good time spiced with Norse and Greek mythological influences, then buy Aikur's War now

Fur Trader 2 is released early!

2018 is off to a good start! Not only did Dominion: Edge of the Storm get an early release, but Fur Trader 2 is out today! That's right, no more waiting until April -- it's available right now on Kindle. So if you pre-ordered it, then enjoy, and if you are waiting for the paperback, that should be ready between Wednesday and Friday (there's always a bit of a lag on my paperbacks --- but it's coming early too, so it's still great news.)

Garrin has more than a few tricks left up his sleeve and if you have been waiting to see how the veteran mountain man handles the rest of the dubious wizards and mercenaries sent to track him down, you won't be disappointed.

Garrin thought he had hired on to simply guide a pair of travelers through Dryden Pass. He soon learned the truth of their identities after overcoming ancient automotons, mage-assassins, and epic wizard battles, but the real danger lies ahead of him.

The harshest storms are rolling in, some augmented and exacerbated by magic. And that's not all. Soldiers and thugs pursue them at every turn, while frost trolls and deadly creatures from the mountain emerge, eager to make a meal of them.

Garrin will have to use every trick at his disposal to ensure they make it through the pass alive.

And if you haven't checked out Fur Trader 1 yet, do yourself a favor and pick it up. It's a fun blend of a mountain-man adventure wrapped up in a fantasy burrito with plenty of folklore spice and a little twist of lemon ;)

Garrin completed his mandatory military service several years ago, and he hated every minute of it. Now, he spends his days as a trapper. He knows the northern mountains of Dryden Range better than any other fur trader in the business. More than that, he is one of only two such people to have ever worked in Geberron Pass, the most deadly parts of Dryden Range.

When he is approached by a middle-aged man and his teenage nephew, Garrin knows there is more to the pair than they are telling him. They seek passage to Brywood, a city to the north of Dryden Range and across the Seron River, which marks the northernmost border of Garrin’s homeland. Most folk would travel west along the southern coastline and then turn northward, skirting around the mountains. These two, however, are offering a small fortune to go directly through the mountains with Garrin as their guide. The uncle pitches the idea as if he was nothing more than an adventure-hungry lesser-noble with too much gold and time on his hands for his own good.

Garrin knows that even those seeking adventure would never think to attempt Geberron Pass in the winter, unless they were hiding something. Still, the stranger makes Garrin an offer too good to pass up.

However, as the trio pushes forward through Dryden Range, Garrin soon learns that the uncle’s secret is far more serious than he ever could have imagined, and he finds himself in peril the likes of which he has never experienced before. Garrin quickly realizes he will need to dig deep and employ his full range of skills to ensure the safety of the group, and particularly protect the life of the youth who has clearly been plunged in over his teenage head.

The Crystal Spire -- the next chapter in Erik Lokton's adventures...

Today The Crystal Spire went up for pre-order. It has been almost a year since the last Erik Lokton book came out, so I hope it meets reader expectations. There are going to be a few fun twists in this one that I think will be exciting for long time fans that have read more than just this one series too.

It's been a crazy year with moving up release schedules and slotting in all of these releases, but it has been very rewarding to hear some good feedback on the stories that people have been waiting for. With Crystal Spire, I wanted to do something a bit special for the fans, and have the pre-order set to a low $0.99. After the book's launch date, it will go back up to full price at $2.99, so if you're thinking about grabbing it, I'd suggest snagging it now.
