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:


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)

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.
