Maps Are Coming and so is Demeron!

MAPS

For kindle books, maps have to be jpeg files.  These don’t come out particularly well when published. I have embarked on a little project to set up a location on this site to house maps for my series. I will probably have them downloadable as PDF files so the maps can be enlarged without losing too much detail.

I intend on setting them up on a page on the menu bar below the title.

Demeron: A Horse’s Tale

I’ve also written the first draft of a novella (about 60 pages long) on Demeron’s adventures. Demeron: A Horse’s Tale is all about Demeron and his quest to return to the Deftnis Monastery after being left to his own devices in A Sip of Magic. I hope to have it out by the end of March, but my next book, Emperor’s Pet has priority, so I can publish that by the end of April.  An excerpt has been plopped at that end of The Sleeping God.

All the Disinherited Prince books are in Pol’s point of view and I didn’t feel Demeron’s story would fit into the novels, so it will be a standalone story. It is intended to be read after A Sip of Magic and before Emperor’s Pet.

By the way, Mark Twain wrote A Horse’s Tale a century ago. I have appropriated most of the title from him. I have Clemens’s in my family history and there is one of those hoary family ‘legends’ that he was a cousin or something to one of my direct ancestors. I hope he doesn’t mind.

The Sleeping God is Awake! Book is published

Book Four in the Disinherited Prince Series is now out. Here is the blurb:

Carrying an amulet given to him by his late mother, Pol Cissert seizes on an opportunity to travel to a far off city in search of his roots. He has no idea that the journey is no easy jaunt. Chased by mSleepingGodCvrMedagicians, thugs, pirates, and priests, he seeks his legacy by seeking the Cathedral of the Sleeping God. Pol finds that the truth isn’t always something everyone wants.

FANTASY – EPIC / SWORD & SORCERY / YOUNG ADULT

I won’t get the paperback finished until sometime in March. I had to push things to get the e-book version out before the end of February.  I didn’t think it would make it, but it did. It is exclusively on Amazon.
