The kickstarter project for Dominion's hardcover print run has started!

I am so excited to announce this that I have got more wiggles than a three-year-old hopped up on a load of candy ... and I know this because my three year old is currently chowing down and going a bit wild...

The official Kickstarter launch is Friday, but I am doing a soft launch just for people who subscribe to my blog and FB pages. I won't go into a ton of detail, you can see all the prizes for yourself by clicking the link below. Then, please share on your social media sites and let's get Dominion ready to launch in a BIG way!

The next installment of The Dragons of Kendualdern: Dominion

Help me kick off the next installment of the Dragons of Kendualdern!

Dominion is an action-packed adventure that follows Karlax, a young dragon prince hell-bent on vengeance and domination. If you thought you knew everything about Gorliad's story, you were wrong! This book opens up during Siravel's murderous attack on another kingdom. In the wake of her destruction, Karlax is the sole dragon survivor. After helplessly watching his home fall to Siravel's might, he has sworn never to forget.

The main goal of the kickstarter isn't actually to fund the book itself. The cover art, editing, writing, is all either completed, or in process and has sufficient funds allocated to it. The kickstarter's main goal is two-fold. The first is to reward you guys for being awesome! I'll have some rewards that should be very fun for you to choose from, such as free e-book of your choice along with a copy of Dominion, or a special hardcover edition of Dominion along with a super fun book bag, things like that. I even have a few shirts to give away... In fact, here's a sneak peek at some of the rewards:









So jump on board and check out the link below. It has the official countdown timer for the kickstarter launch which is happening this Friday!

Tuesdays suck...


Tuesdays don't really suck, but if you have read Gatekeepers then you will catch the reference. Sometimes I just don't want to have to come up with a title for a short blog post, and since today is Tuesday... I just couldn't resist.

I wanted to shout out to those of you who dropped by SLC comic con and say thanks for making it a great con. I always love meeting old and new fans. Now that the costumes are all put away though, it's back to the keyboard for me. I'm still ironing out Fur Trader 2 and putting in some fun edits. It's taking a bit longer than I had hoped, but better to have a good story than to rush it.

Also, I have been asked by several of you about the next Dragons of Kendualdern book... the short answer is I hope it will be out this Fall. This series in particular has taken me a lot longer to write than any others I have worked on. I am hoping that the end product will prove worth the wait. The next book will again be from a dragon's perspective, which is super fun for me. It will not, however, revolve around Gorliad. Frankly speaking, I hadn't ever intended Gorliad to be in the sequels. So, Dominion takes place after Ascension, but has an entirely new cast of characters. They are directly related to Ascension, however, so it should still prove to be a very fun read for those of you that liked Ascension.

Gatekeepers is on sale now!

As my final push for SLC Comic Con, the kindle version of Gatekeepers is on sale this week for only $0.99! Be sure to check it out and let your friends know. Also, if you are in the area, come and drop by booth Beige 64, where I will be ready for autograph signings or just shooting the breeze.

It's an average Tuesday night in Dallas when Joshua Mills learns that his estranged father is in deep trouble for a theft committed years ago. When an other-worldly bounty hunter comes to exact vengeance for the stolen item, Joshua is caught in the crossfire and put on trial for murder. Though ultimately able to beat the murder charge, Joshua's life is left in tatters after the attack, and more than one special enforcement group is interested in Joshua. Creatures from across the seven realms are after Joshua and information about the strange engine stolen by his father decades earlier. Joshua will need to decide whether to help protect Earth from the forces that would enter through inter-dimensional gates from the other realms, or to live a life devoid of memories of his family and home in order to remain safe.

Introducing a new book by A.L. Sirois

As I make the final preparations for SLC Comic Con, I wanted to let you all know about a real cool book that just came out. It's The Bohemian Magician, by A.L. Sirois. It's published by Dragon Scale Publishing, so I am a little biased, but it's pretty cool. Check out the cover art and the blurb:

CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW THE BOHEMIAN MAGICIAN








Young Guilhelm has everything a man of the middle ages could ask for: money, title, admirers. But he has one thing that puts all of that in jeopardy. One thing that he cannot get rid of. He has been designated FAIRY FRIEND. Now, no matter where he goes, the fair folk of our world are attracted to his side, and they cause more trouble than Guilhelm seems able to bear.

Praise for The Bohemian Magician:

“With a voice like Sabatini and the humor of Zelazny at his wryest, Sirois offers a tale of fantastic adventure--so what more do you want?” - John Shirley, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Demons

"The Bohemian Magician is a rousing sword and sorcery tale that expertly blends the grit and grime of 12th century Europe with folklore and fantasy. Its dark magic drew me in and left me begging for a sequel!" – Donna Galanti, author of Joshua and the Lightning Road

"Al Sirois’s amusing fantasy, set in the Middle Ages, chronicles the swashbuckling adventures of a young French knight as he encounters fairies, ogres, wizards, ifrits, kobolds, demons, dragons, and pestiferous gnomes." — Don Swaim, author of The Assassination of Ambrose Bierce: A Love Story

"The young duke Guilhem takes a wrong turn on the way to the Crusades – and off we go on a picaresque adventure of magic and mayhem, on earth and off! Great fun – a high-flying Candide reimagined for a bubble universe....Never a dull moment! Braggarts, fools, heroes, and magicians cross swords in this wide-ranging fantasy. If you’ve a yen for those dark woods where medieval history tangles with Faery, The Bohemian Magician satisfies." -- Valerie Nieman, author of Neena Gathering

"Spell-binding prose, magical, with an authentic feel. The Middle Ages like they’ve rarely been seen, with crusading warriors and sorcerers and hooligans beset by folklore beasts both friend and foe, from many cultures. Well researched. Quite an entrancing read." -- Chris Bauer author of Scars on the Face of God, Jane’s Baby (2018)

His inexperienced eyes are forced open as demons and evil creatures that had previously only haunted his nightmares awaken, and old feuds boil to the surface once more. However, Erik lacks the discipline of a seasoned knight and despite his growing knowledge of the dark forces at work in his world his curiosity and headstrong ways get him into trouble. With the help of a master swordsman and a few friends, he must learn to balance his duty to family with his destiny and responsibility to his kingdom. Yet, not all friends are true, and old debts are coming due. Erik must choose between rescuing his family, and extinguishing the crimson tide of darkness that threatens to swallow the whole realm.

Waiting for art...

So my most recent project is almost entirely finished, except for the cover art.

I have seen a few sketches and I like the direction it's going, but I am sitting here like a kid the night before Christmas, just itching to open up the box. The finished cover was supposed to be done a few days ago, and I want to do a reveal for it .... but each day ticks by and I still haven't seen the final version. Obviously you can't rush artwork without sacrificing some quality, so I am resisting the urge to fly out to the artist's office and sit there waiting for it... but only barely.

About the only thing that is helping me keep my sanity is the fact that I have several other projects in the works right now.

Fur Trader 2
The Dragons of Kendualdern: Dominion
The Crystal Spire

And... two more that shall not be named.

With any luck, they'll all be finished and done this year... but we'll just have to see how it goes. Stay tuned for the cover reveal -- and I'll probably include a teaser from the first chapter as well. :)

Free copies of Flight of the Krilo available for a limited time


So, while I have some plumbers down in the basement using a jackhammer to put in a couple new bathrooms, I thought I would take a minute and let you all know that the kindle version of Flight of the Krilo is free for a limited time. If you haven't read this story, check it out! It's a fun romp of an adventure that also lays open a bit more about a couple of the more obscure races on Terramyr.










Also, keep your eye out a little later this week, as I am going to participate in a giveaway of some signed copied of The Moon Dragon, an illustrated children's story that is set on Terramyr. If you haven't seen that either, you should definitely check it out, the illustrations are wonderful! I would also say that my kids love the book... but frankly they are a bit biased ;)




In other news, I am just waiting for the final, polished up cover to come in so I can reveal the project I have been working on most recently. The sketches have been pretty cool so far, so it should be great.

Ramping up for SLC Comic Con


Work on the new house is coming along fairly nicely -- despite a few unexpected repairs and a gas leak-- so I should be getting back to my writing schedule pretty soon. I have not, however, been totally neglectful of my books. I have carved away a couple hours each day to continue working on the urban fantasy project I started a few months back. I am happy to say that I should be able to do the cover reveal next week. I haven't seen any sketches yet, so I am a bit nervous, but I am pretty excited to see it. The book itself has been a ton of fun to write as I get to merge fantasy monsters and realistic settings... and modern firearms :)

In this book I am also playing with a different narrative voice. Instead of using the third person, I am using first person, which is a huuuuge game changer when it comes to writing. Even third-person limited (where the narrator doesn't know everything in each character's head) is soooo much wider in scope than first person, so it is a big shift for me. Instead of cutting away to see things from other viewpoints, I am sticking with the MC the whole way through, and working on techniques to make that exciting for the reader. I'll try to give a bit of a teaser with the cover reveal next week so you can get a sneak peek.

In the meantime, I'm also working on Comic Con preparations. This will be the first year that I bring the illustrated children's books with me so I am looking forward to sharing those with those of you able to come to the Con. (Not sure I am going to wear the chainmail this time though... I'm a big dude, but that stuff gets pretty hot and uncomfortable after a while.)

Anyway, I gotta run and get back to work. We have projects scattered throughout the house -- just this morning my six year old son helped me reroute the internet cable from an obscure point in the basement up to my upstairs office, so the whole family is getting into the action and it is quite fun, but I will be happy when it's finished!

Happy reading everyone!

New house under way

So we are sort of moved in to our new house. Meaning that while we are doing the renovations we essentially have one bedroom, one bathroom, and a living room. So it's like camping, except the tent walls are a bit thicker ;)

The repairs and construction have cut into my writing time, but I am still actively working on a few projects. One is the follow up to Dark Sahale, but the other is a fun urban fantasy project I have been working on for a while. It's very different playing with fantasy characters in a real or semi-real setting, but has proven to be very fun so far. Hopefully you will like it as well.

In the meantime, production on the audio book version of Dimwater's Demons has finished. If you haven't checked it out yet, go ahead and click here to give it a listen. It's a fun story, and I think Alexander Doddy has done a fantastic job of bringing it to life.

Don't miss these great giveaways!

Check out all of my cool give-aways, and don't miss your chance to grab a free copy as the give-away ends July 4th.Scroll down for a complete list:

In the middle of his arduous training in Kuldiga Academy, Erik Lokton discovers that he is destined to become more than a mere knight. His inexperienced eyes are forced open as demons and evil creatures that had previously only haunted his nightmares awaken, and old feuds boil to the surface once more. However, Erik lacks the discipline of a seasoned knight and despite his growing knowledge of the dark forces at work in his world his curiosity and headstrong ways get him into trouble. With the help of a master swordsman and a few friends, he must learn to balance his duty to family with his destiny and responsibility to his kingdom. Yet, not all friends are true, and old debts are coming due. Erik must choose between rescuing his family, and extinguishing the crimson tide of darkness that threatens to swallow the whole realm.

Learn about the origins of the Dwarves who reside in the Middle Kingdom in the most exciting way possible, through a comic book! You will meet Persais, the first King of Roegudok Hall, and discover how he and his kin were carved from the Black Mountain. You will also learn about the dwarves' connection with the Ancients, and the young dragon prince who grew up in the halls of the dwarves, as no other dragon could do.

Young Kyra is destined for four years of sorcery training at Kuldiga Academy. After that she will be wed to the man her father has chosen for her and embark upon the perfectly respectable and confining life of a noblewoman in the Middle Kingdom, something she never wanted.

But, when Kyra’s mother is murdered by strange creatures, she is thrust into a world of demons and magic before she is ready. More dangerous still, she finds a dragon egg. Though wisdom would suggest she destroy it before it hatches and wreaks havoc on the land, she realizes that it needs her to survive, for there is a terrible curse threatening to destroy it.

As their relationship grows, she comes to understand that she needs the dragon just as much, if not more so, if she is to survive the creatures that killed her mother and are now tracking her.

Olveric is a bit of a layabout for an elf, preferring to play his gittern by the river and let the days slowly pass him by. When a magic wand comes unexpectedly into his life, he discovers that the dark talisman has bound itself to him. He learns that the ancient Álfarin high city, Balatāme Jorām, had been destroyed a thousand years earlier by an elf of mixed blood who wielded this very wand. Now the future of the great power this wand holds rests solely in Olveric's hands, and he has no way to disentangle himself from the energies that tie this fell item to Empyrean, the world of the Dark Gods.

The Elder Council sends Olveric upon a journey to uncover the mysteries of the past. Together with his friends, a fox and a kobold, he will brave dangers he had never imagined in an attempt to reclaim a heritage lost to the Álfarin for one thousand years.


Among the Tarthun peoples of Terramyr, there is a myth which tells of a special friendship between a boy whose heart was big enough to share his home with everyone, and a dragon who was so brave, he was able to break through the dark curtain of night to bring light back to the boy's world when a strange darkness fell over the land. The story of Boba the skyte and Aiden the young Tarthun boy is retold for you so that you may know to look for the Moon Dragon each night, and understand where he has gone when the moon goes dark.


Jonathan is not the strongest young man in his home village. That would be his older brother Jason. He isn't the tallest, best looking, or funniest either. Again, that would be Jason. He is better than most in the village at archery, though. He is an excellent hunter, and can perform more trick shots than anyone else with amazing accuracy. Well, he is almost better than anyone else. Jason has him beat there too. Jonathan doesn't mind though, he and his older brother share a deep bond that connects them more fully than their differences could separate them. They work together in their family fields, go swimming at the fishing hole, and sometimes they play tricks on other farmers in the village. Whatever they do, for good or ill, they do together.

On Jonathan's sixteenth birthday though, officers come to the village asking for volunteers. Trolls have invaded during the heaviest monsoon season ever known, and the wet conditions have given the trolls enhanced abilities. Jason is the first to step forward, and is eagerly accepted for his height and strength. Though he also volunteers, Jonathan is told he is too young, and not strong enough for the rigors of war with the trolls in the Murkle Quags.

When letters stop arriving from Jason after two years of war, and Jonathan still finds himself denied acceptance to the army due to his small stature, he does what any good brother would do. Jonathan Haymaker takes his bow and leaves his home. They said it couldn't be done. The journey was too far, the dangers too great, and the war too fierce for a boy like him. Perhaps they were right, but he knew Jason was alive somewhere, and he was not about to let his brother be alone.





Talon, a cold, calculating assassin has been double-crossed by his partners. Having barely escaped their trap for him, he returns their treachery with his blade and continues to seek the Tomni’Tai Scroll –the one artifact that will grant him incredible power and enable him to finally put his oldest enemies to rest. A well-renowned elf sage sits near the top of Talon’s list, but that isn’t all. Talon seeks even to slay Basei, the demigod of battle. As Talon’s power grows, only one man stands a chance of stopping Talon from unleashing his ultimate, unbridled wrath upon the realm. Kai, a disgraced ranger, crosses the trail of destruction Talon has left behind him, and discovers that it falls to him to halt Talon before the Netherworld Gate can be opened.

Sold my home and working out of my car...

Okay so not really entirely out of my car. We have some camping trips planned and then we have some relatives that will put up with us for a bit while we wait to close on our next home, but I thought the title would be funny.

In any case, I am working on edits for The Crystal Spire, the sequel to Dark Sahale, and I am having a ton of fun. I know I said that last time, but in The Crystal Spire I get to play around with Allun'Rha, and he is an interesting character. A bit mischievous, somewhat tainted by Nagar's blight... and perhaps a bit hardened by the harsh reality of what he has seen and done over the last several centuries of his life. Putting that up against Erik is a fun, intriguing task, as they have somewhat similar experiences, but are approaching life from slightly different angles.

If you haven't taken a look at Dark Sahale yet, be sure to click on the link below. If you enjoyed The Dragon's Champion series, then this should be a fun ride for you!

Click here to preview Dark Sahale

In other news, I am happy to announce that I will be at SLC Comic Con Sept. 21-23. I had a tremendous amount of fun last year, and am looking forward to meeting with a bunch of you again this year! I don't have a booth announcement yet, but once I know my location I will be sure to let you know! Until then, hope everyone has a great summer!

Prepping for a book blast

Three of my books have been picked up for a book blast. Take a peek at the details if you are interested, there are some other Dragon Scale authors participating as well so it should be fun.

https://www.2tigersllc.com/book-blast/

http://bit.ly/2qUVl42 #kindle #qotd #bookblogger #BookBlast2TigersLLC #read #bookworm #RT #bibliophile #booklover #amreading

In the meantime, Dark Sahale has received some good feedback so far. It's hit the top 10 in the U.S. and top 3 in the U.K. so hopefully that means people are enjoying it. (I'm always nervous until a few reviews roll in... so help me assuage my anxiousness by sending in your thoughts and posting nice reviews on amazon... or just let me suffer, never knowing whether you enjoyed it or not...)

Erik Lokton is back in an all new adventure!


I have been working on this project for a long time, but today is finally the day that Dark Sahale is available for you to read! I am super excited to bring Erik Lokton back for a new adventure that promises a few surprising twists and turns as we kick off a new series.

It has been so much fun to work with Erik again after completing other projects. It has been challenging and rewarding to find new ways in which to stretch Erik as a character, especially given all that he has already accomplished within The Dragon's Champion series. I am definitely looking forward to seeing how you all like it. This book starts out about seven years after Return of the Dragon, at a time when someone has murdered more than a dozen sahale...

Grab your copy of Dark Sahale here!

Here's the blurb and cover art details:
Haunted by the ghosts of war, Erik Lokton has spent years traveling alone in the Southlands, hunting for answers to the nature of his identity as a Sahale, a dragon kin. Visited by visions of a fiery wrath that is one day to be brought upon the world, Erik also seeks to unravel the mystery of the Four Horsemen, enforcers of a mysterious Cosmic Counsel which is, by all accounts, unstoppable. When a series of murders in the Middle Kingdom call him home to help avert hostilities between dragon kind and the races of men, Erik is reunited with a beautiful woman from his past, the elven ranger Lady Arkyn. Together they must race to uncover the identity of the murderer. Erik will be faced with questions about his heritage and his past, and will find some unexpected answers.

It's Almost here... Erik Lokton returns!


So I have dropped a few hints, and even thrown out a cover a few weeks ago. I am super excited about each of the projects I am working on right now, but I think I am most stoked to be bringing Erik back!

I don't have a release date yet, but I do have the initial cover sketch for the next book. Hope you like it.

Keep checking back as I will put updates and a release date as soon as I have it!


For those of you who haven't read through Erik's previous adventures, be sure to check them out! (Although it isn't necessary if you want to start with Dark Sahale... your choice.)

2017 has been a bit weird so far...

This year has started off a bit weird!

I ran into a bit of a wall in terms of my powerlifting, so I had to cancel my trip to Atlanta for the National Championship next month. I'm super bummed about that, but it is what it is. Essentially just ran into a cash and timing issue. That's just how life goes sometimes. Still, I do have a couple of gold medals for the state championship and the regional championship, so I certainly can't complain about how far I have come in a little over one year of stepping back into training.

The next thing on the plate is that we're moving. So, the joys of house hunting have been eating up a lot of time. We had thought we would be in our current house for at least a couple decades (I moved around a lot growing up, so I wanted to be a little more stable in my adult life...) but it looks like we'll be moving out this summer.

And then there are the writing projects. Some have been great. I really enjoyed Eye of Tanglewood Forest and I think it brings a lot to the world of Terramyr- and some have not been so great, like needing to redo Fur Trader 2. Then there have been some fun things thrown into the mix that I hadn't been planning on, like a couple new Erik Lokton projects, and a funky new urban fantasy I have been working on. I never thought I would do an urban fantasy book... but it has been a lot more fun than I had anticipated. A little harder too as it requires some research on real world places and legends etc., but fun. There's something about taking the known world and creating a fictional system within it that has been pleasant to experiment with.

And, as if it wasn't challenging enough to work in a new genre, it's going to be in first person, which makes it an entirely different animal from all of the other novels I have worked with. Hopefully the rest of you will like it. I haven't gotten all of my editor's feedback for it yet... so I am not sure what the timeline is for it, but I am hoping it will be nearing the final stages fairly quickly.

Also, I have been asked by several of you about the next Dimwater book. YES, there is more to come... but I don't have a timeline yet. The next Dimwater project is in the early drafting stages and I am not sure when it will come. I can promise I won't be super slow, but it takes a bit of time to develop so it certainly won't be this summer.

And, just because there isn't enough going on right now... there is a game developing company (which shall remain nameless at this point) working on two games set in Terramyr. I don't know all of the details about the timeline, but I was consulted on it and had a lot to do with it's development so far. Both are RPGs that are set in the same location as Jonathan Haymaker... though they are at different periods of time, so they aren't game versions of the books, but rather an extension of the world that uses some of the history and themes from the Haymaker Adventures series. Still cool though. If the larger RPG gets officially greenlighted, then I will be doing the story writing and planning so it will officially fit within the World of Terramyr canon.
