And now there is nothing that can stand in the way of getting more writing done aside from the usual chaos that my life is, but fortunately that’s predictable and therefore manageable.
Coming in April and June of this year, I will have finished the sequel to Whispering Stone (the first book of the Whisper series) and the sequel to the Dragon Aster series. Both are proving to be a lot of fun to write so far.
In Shattered Guardians, the world has turned against the Whispers. If that wasn’t bad enough, Tori and Cae find themselves faced with an opponent who can not only control Wraiths, but utilize the dark energy of the Silence for some devastating results.
In Dragon Frost, it’s ten years since the Sylvan Aur returned its light to the world of Aster, but that doesn’t leave Nafury any less lost in it all. He has managed to stay alive with the weight of the world’s hate on him, but his luck is starting to run out. When the Caelestis’ last words of hope suddenly become a reality before him, he finds his one chance for redemption; by helping to save a world he nearly destroyed.
If you haven’t checked out the Dragon Aster Trilogy and Whispering Stone, both are currently available on the Kindle and in paperback from Amazon. I hope to have conquered Smashword’s meatgrinder and make their ePub versions available in the near future. Be sure to check back here for the latest updates as well!
Tori just got a gargoyle for her birthday, only she doesn’t know it yet.
No one knows when the Whispers arrived. They are invisible spirits with the power to move stone, and no one knows why they are here. They can be the stone angel in your yard or the supporting pillar of your home. Shattered pieces of their statues have revealed nothing, for their souls simply move to another hiding place.
Hers whispers a terrible warning. Time is running out.
When an Awl takes Sybl to the realm of Aster, she will discover a place where fantasy is the reality. A world of dragons and creatures only dreams and nightmares could conjure.
A dragon’s faith in a Prophecy that a Fay would return to restore the balance of life and death leads Cirrus to Sybl. They will be pitted against a demon’s vengeful pull towards a war against Earth. A war held at bay by a hope for peace that was nearly extinguished three hundred years ago.
The Threads of Fate will unfurl to their shattering point, and be held together by the wings of limitless love as the Dragon Aster Trilogy comes together, unabridged and complete with a glossary and map.
The major differences from the separate books (#1-3) that you will find in here are:
– A map of the Torian and Suzerain Continents
– A full glossary
– All three books in one
– And a new cover!
I am still gathering names together to ship review copies out to as well, so if you are a reviewer, book blogger, librarian, book store employee and such I would be happy to send you a paperback or digital copy in format of your choice. Just email me on Goodreads or at email@example.com
The Threads of Fate are nearing their shattering point. The Aeger continues to spread across all three continents and consume all it touches with despair, and death.
The two Aurs grow dimmer as Aragmoth closes his eyes, paralyzing much of Aster in snow and ice. Sybl, Cirrus, and Kas must scramble to take out an army of Eminor under Damek’s control, pitting dreams and nightmares against the demon’s pull towards war. A war held at bay by the light Sybl holds within her.
Time is running out, and the calamity of ruin that only dragons can bring is here.
Kobo has always been one of those cute, compatible-with-just-about-any-format ebook readers that I walk by when I visit Chapters Indigo bookstores in my city. So when Kobo launched their own self-publishing platform Writing Life, I wasted no time jumping over to their site to see what it was all about.
Overall it’s more or less the same thing as the Kindle Direct Publishing site, where you enter your book details, cover and your book itself. I uploaded mine up as an .epub, but it looks to accept .mobi and other formats as well. You can also turn DRM on or off. You can get royalties as high as 70% for books between $1.99 and 12.99 and 45% for anything under or over that. Took them less than a day to make it published and visible on their website, which is at the moment slightly faster than Kindle. You can also make your book free when you want and the price change is instantaneous (their search engine takes about an hour to catch up). The best part is that if you upload an .epub file, there is no meatgrinder to turn your dragons into a shredded turkey. Mind you, I haven’t tried their convertor with .mobi and other file formats, so bring the gravy just in case.
Best part of putting my book on Kobo so far has to be that I don’t have to chase after my past reviewers like a rabid author to post their reviews on Kobo, as it takes all 43 of them from Goodreads and lists them on my product page. Easy mode easy? So far no complaints. If you are looking to extend the reach of your ebooks, Writing Life by Kobo is one of the easiest ways out there to do it.
