I’m happy to announce that A Sorcerer’s Diplomacy, the third book in the Song of Sorcery is now available on Amazon kindle. The paperback will be out in mid-march. If you’d like to get a copy you can at this link: Amazon
Here is the blurb:
Back at Doubli Academy, Ricky finds new acquaintances and a new pastime. However, all is not bliss as circumstances converge making it impossible to avoid confronting his nemesis, Duke Noacci, the man Ricky suspects of killing his parents. While on a school break, he finds himself in the middle of two powers ready to go to war. Ricky must make life-altering decisions as he struggles to save himself and his new friends.
The editing is about complete. The cover is done. Most of the manuscript technical work is finished. A Sorcerer’s Diplomacy is due out at the end of the week (sometime between February 22nd and February 26th.)
The book was fun to write especially a new character, alluded to in the first books is brought to life.
By the way, I’m already more than a third finished with book four, A Sorcerer’s Rings.
I generally don’t do this, but someone asked. This is not an endorsement. I haven’t read the book, so if you don’t like it don’t blame me. It’s for 99 cents for a week or so and you can read it for free if you’ve got Kindle Unlimited. The good? I like the MC’s name. The bad? Web of Eyes sort of sounds creepy, doesn’t it? – Guy
Launch Sale Dates: $0.99 Feb 5th – 11th. $2.99 afterwards. Free in Kindle Unlimited.
An ill king brings circling wolves…
When Whitney Fierstown, the self-proclaimed “World’s Greatest Thief,” is imprisoned for a foolhardy attempt to steal the crown off the dying King’s head, a determined knight of the King’s Shield provides an ultimatum: rot and die in a dank cell or join him on a dangerous expedition to find the Queen’s traitorous brother, a warlock accused of placing a terrible curse on the heir to the throne.
With the Kingdom at its most vulnerable, these two opposites, devout knight and conniving scoundrel, pursue the traitor to the hellish Webbed Woods. If the pair is to thwart their mischievous target and withstand the horrifying monster lurking in the haunted woods, they must first put aside their differences.
A Sword & Sorcery Epic perfect for fans of Dragon Age and the Forgotten Realms.
“Fantastic world building and masterful prose. Definitely a must read for Epic Fantasy fans.” Brian D. Anderson, bestselling author of The Godling Chronicles
I thought I’d let everyone know that the first draft of A Sorcerer’s Diplomacy was finished a minute ago. Whew! I’d say it’s a pretty complete first draft, so I don’t expect any major changes as I start my rewrites tomorrow.
Ricky’s story starts out a bit slowly, but as events rise and fall, everything heats up for an exciting end. So, on to rewrites!
My audiobook publisher, Podium Publishing, notified me recently that The Emperor’s Pet of the Disinherited Prince series has just been released. Those of you who use audiobooks can now hear the book. They are in the process of releasing all of the series.
After some negative comments about the cover for A Sorcerer Imprisoned (including my wife), I had the cover changed. It is now a different scene where there is a tragic fire. As you might notice, the same poses were used. Instead of holding a stick, Ricky is holding a pitchfork. Here it is:
I am happy to announce that A Sorcerer Imprisoned is done and in the process of being available for sale on Amazon. I am working on Book Three’s plotting and will start drafting right after Christmas. It is scheduled for release before the end of February.
Here is the official blurb:
Ricky Valian always dreaded the Juvenile Home in the city of Applia. Killing a member of the Council of Notables is enough to sentence him for a stay. The lord’s widow is anxious for revenge and Ricky has to scramble to stay ahead of people out seeking revenge. While there are strange things going on at the Home that will put him in peril, he finds a priceless treasure long forgotten at the Home. Can he stay alive long enough to save it?
The link to the book is here.
My manuscript has one more edit to go and the manuscript is in her hands. So, while I wait, I’ve approved the cover. This scene comes towards the end of the story.
Draft is done. First outside edit is complete with one more to go. A before-Christmas release is looking pretty good. I’ll have a cover reveal in the next week along with the final back-cover blurb.
As I am winding down A Sorcerer Imprisoned, I am putting together the next book, A Sorcerer’s Diplomacy. Ricky finishes his second year at the Academy and is asked to spend the summer at another student’s estate on an island country. Events escalate and Ricky is reluctantly called on to intervene.
This one is scheduled to be out by the end of February. I want this one finished by then since I’ll be spending the first week in March in France on a long-overdue european vacation.
