Some Updates

Hello everyone!

I realize an update here is long overdue, and I apologize. I have some good news, and some bad news. Unfortunately, I think it is all good news for me, and all bad news for you.

The good news is that there have been lots of changes in my life in the past few weeks. I have moved into a new house with my best friend, so have been very busy packing and unpacking, and getting everything set up for a new home. Also, I have gotten a new job! I am still working for the library, but I’ll now be working in the graphics department at the library headquarters. I’m very excited about it, as I think it will be a much more exciting job, and will let me make better use of my skills and creativity.

The bad news is that all of these changes have put me behind in my writing and publication schedule. Thus, I have to announce that I am pushing back the release of book five, The Court of the Hydra King. I had hoped to have it out in November, but that’s just not going to happen with everything that has gone on in the past few weeks. As the Beatles once sang, “Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans.” So, I will have to see how things pan out before I nail down a definite release date. If I can get my act together soon, it may be in December. Otherwise, the release won’t happen until early 2014. I will let you know when I have a definite date.

Until then, I hope you are all enjoying The Mirror of Dùmsaro and the rest of the series. I’m very excited about book five, as it’s one of my favorites. I’m looking forward sharing it with you. First though, I have to get my (new) life in order!

Book Four Trailer

I’ve posted the trailer for The Mirror of Dùmsaro up on Youtube. You can view it below, and on the book’s page.

Unlike previous trailers, this one contains a poem written in Aetherian, which foreshadows events in this book, and the following one. I’ve posted the poem and its translation here, and on the Aetherian page.

Ìaton athénio
velisòn nùnbraelò antoriò
Ké morthanén al mesér
somterraenàm navadbòn
En maluth elopathò
athénio ad vantò
En tempadon
velostorò dukel ìaton.

Broth ìtagobòn esean,
kovel astrìn hypanthòn,
Ìatal unu caditbòn

En lustriel volaribòn

Ké petrùum elìacthus

Fasete ad nemasaem,

En peténete volaròn

Now come the days
of the shadows of old
When the dead shall tread
over our great land
And the curse of the ages
comes back to the fore
And the time of the reckoning
comes to hand.

Here shall they march,
those stars of the flag.
Yet one shall fall
to the one-eyed king.
And the sparks will fly
from the hawk’s black wings
When the knife is thrown
and the arrows sing.

Rush to the memories,
rush to the light,
Sing for the fallen ones
and fight for the sun,
Brace for the fires
that pour from the Gate
And look to the flight
of the brave silver one.

There’s still time to enter the giveaway for book four, so get your name in the drawing before May 13th!

Bound By Blood Pronunciation Guide

Hi all! I’ve finally finished the pronunciation guide for Bound By Blood. I do apologize for taking so long with it. I was sick a lot this winter, which did a number on my voice. My microphone decided to give up the ghost as well, and I’ve just recently procured a new one. (excuses, excuses…) I will try to be a bit more prompt in putting one up for book three.

With no further adieu, here is the pronunciation video. I will include it on the book’s page as well for easy reference.

Things are on track for book four’s release in June. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway if you haven’t already. I also uploaded some sketches to my DeviantArt yesterday, which might give a few hints to characters and events coming up in books four and five.

Chapter One + Giveaway!

In celebration of finishing my reading of the proof, I have posted chapter one of The Mirror Of Dùmsaro for free reading on the book page, or you can download the chapter directly here. Also on the book page, you’ll find a few illustrations that go with the book. Some of them are rather old, so I apologize. A couple are borderline embarrassing, but I thought I’d share anyway.

I’ve also started a giveaway on Goodreads, so be sure to enter to win one of 10 signed copies!
