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.

Dominion: Edge of the Storm is going to be released a month early!

I am so excited to announce that book three in the Dragons of Kendualdern saga, Dominion: Edge of the Storm, is going to be released THIS FRIDAY! Originally it was planned to go out on March 31st, but I really didn't want to wait any longer than I had to, so we buckled down and pulled a few long days and switched up the release.

Karlax's story is one that has been so much fun to work with and introduce little twists here and there. I think as you get into the series, you'll see some of the fun things weaving in and out of each story that bind them all together and it should make for a satisfying adventure.

Click here to pre-order book 3!
If you haven't started the series yet, then definitely check it out!
Click here to check out book 1
Click Here to check out book 2

The other really cool result of pushing the release date up is I am pretty sure it is going to have a cascade effect, so Fur Trader 2 should be able to get moved up quite a bit as well! Stay tuned, and I will be sure to put out any updates just as soon as I can.

Until then... Happy reading!

Epic Farm Boy gets a sequel... sort of...

I had a ton of fun writing Epic Farm Boy -- too much fun probably-- and now you have seen a glimpse of my scatter-brained idea of humor. But, whether you loved it or hated it, Epic Farm Boy is getting a sequel... sort of.

So, it takes place in the same world, but actually doesn't involve Simplin or Lucas. Why?

Because it's a book all about Arethel! The cover is so fun too, with the whole super cheesy smile and heroic pose with the sunlight lighting up her hair as she does one of those "fashion model" head turns. Love it!

The gist of the story is this, Jack -- the same author in Epic Farm Boy -- finds a mysterious manuscript on his computer. He opens it up and finds that Arethel had written down an autobiographical account of her latest adventures as one of the "hottest" Rangers in Lickedintime. It takes place before she met anyone from Simplin's crew, and it a fun, if not slightly over-the-top, story about this lovably dim-witted elf as she chases the man she loves through all sorts of danger. Unfortunately, she is just a bit too dense to realize that her true love just likes her as... a friend... from afar... like, from reeeeeally far away...

Poor Arethel...

Pre-order here.
If you haven't checked out Epic Farm Boy yet, then do yourself a favor and snag it for a weekend read-- it'll put at least one smile on your face guaranteed ;)

A new book release and more announcements!

Today, Dominion: Seeds of Alliance hit the shelves -- or e-readers as the case may be, and it's been fun to see everyone's reactions to it. I was super happy with this one, and loved writing it. It was a lot of fun to explore another dragon as the main character. I haven't really done that since the first Dragons of Kendualdern with Gorliad (don't worry -- those of you looking for Gorliad to make a return will not be disappointed! Just enjoy where you are for now and you'll be pleasantly surprised where Gorliad makes his appearance.)

Next week, Epic Farm Boy comes out. It was very fun as well, but entirely different. I poked fun at a lot of things --authors included of course-- and I am a bit nervous to see how it is received, but also really excited because I think if you go into it fully expecting nothing but a silly way to pass the time and get a few laughs, you will be well pleased. I mean, the main wizard is named Simplin the Wise, that ought to tell you everything you need to know right?

But -- even though these are fun announcements, I have two more for today. The first is Fur Trader 2 finally has a release date (can you hear the trumpets in the background?)

Garrin is going to finish what he started, and it's going to be a fun ride!

Click here for more info!
And then there is this -- the super awesome cover for the next Dragons of Kendualdern book, which will be out in March (or sooner if I have my way!) You are not going to want to miss this next volume!
