If you follow me, you know I’m doing the Women’s Forum in about two hours. I gotta go get dressed, but I want to make sure all you people who give a shit hear what I have to say today, so I don’t care if it’s perfect. I’ll come back and edit it later if I need to. For now, buckle up. Today, shit’s gonna get real. (“What do we say to Death?” “…not today!”) Download my slides here. (If you use Google Drive, it should work fine for you.

With The Seven Wars  concluded, I am looking forward to focusing on my new project– an adult fantasy series, The Alkesh. I added a new menu tab for the series a while back, which you may have noticed. You will also find the working prologue on the page for the first book. I added some additional illustrations this evening, and plan on being more active with posting updates about my work on this project. I’m very excited about it, and look forward to sharing it with you! The manuscript of the first book, The Rose of Avigdell, is almost done and ready to pass into more »

Through Death Or Through Darkness release!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publishing, Writing

Hello all! As of this morning, book three of The Seven Wars is now available in trade paperback and Kindle edition! I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I do. It’s rather a turning point in The Somadàrsath work, as it is the story that changes Etheria and our dear characters forever. In doing so, it sets the stage for the epic stories yet to come and lays the foundation for just about every major event in The Seven Wars that is yet to follow. Don’t miss out!
