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 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 sixth book in The Disinherited Prince Series has just been published on Amazon. The Misplaced Prince – ASIN: B072K93Q63. The paperback version will be available within a week.
The Fractured Empire draft is about 40% complete. That is the seventh and last book in the series.
My next book is coming along. I suppose I’m about ten days behind. I had the beginning of the baseball season, the Masters (I like watching golf) and a Neil Diamond concert to distract me this weekend. In addition, my editor is ill, so we will see what happens in the next few days. I should be done with the first draft by the 12th and will immediately head into rewrites.
The story is coming along nicely and I’m at the very end where tension is high. I like writing this part because twists start to pop into my mind. We’ll see how the end goes. I’ve got it mapped out, but sometimes it’s better to write with the flow and ignore parts of my scene outlines.
A Sip of Magic has been sent to editing. Pol has a lot of challenges in this story, but he finds new friends amidst the ones he already has. Here’s the cover blurb:
Expecting to resume his studies after a long absence, Pol Cissert is disappointed when he is drafted by the Emperor’s Seeker to infiltrate into Tesna Monastery. His mission is to verify rumors of a new army being raised by the South Salvan King, a man he perceives as an enemy. Pol will face new challenges, not the least of which will be figuring out the mysterious roommate that arrives not long after he learns about the Tesnan’s plans to take over the world.
And here is the cover! The release of A Sip of Magic is targeted just before Christmas.
The third volume of The Disinherited Prince is in Draft Mode. Since this is NaNoWriMo, I am dedicated to finishing the draft by the end of the month. I’m about a third of the way through and my wife is going out of town next week, so I’ll have some great opportunities to tickle the keyboard and make a man out of Pol Cissert.
As always, the process of writing always produces surprises and this draft is no different. Pol gets a new companion that plays an unexpected role in the book. There are reversals of fortune and plenty of surprises along the way.
A big thanks to those of you who have joined Pol in his journeys. The Disinherited Prince series is a record seller for me. Tell your friends and neighbors about the fun you’ve had reading about him. I know that’s a shameless plug, but then this is a website for shameless plugs, I guess. 🙂
Magician In Battle, the fourth and final installment of the Power of Poses series debuted on June 24, 2016 and is currently available on Amazon and other e-book retailers.
It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to the characters I’ve created, but, as usual, my folks have left their worlds in a better place than how they found them.
I will take a hiatus from writing fantasy over the summer and will return with a new series, yet to be titled, in the fall.
I’ve just sent the MS to my editor after going through the story a few times. Magician in Battle is just about ready to go. The cover has just been completed and here is a preview.
The latest book in the Power of Poses series, Magician In Captivity is now available at Amazon and Createspace and is coming soon to most e-book retailers.
Here is the blurb:
POWER OF POSES SERIES -Book Three
MAGICIAN IN CAPTIVITY
After a disastrous reunion with Valanna, Trak heads to the mysterious land of Bennin to rescue a Toryan princess sold into slavery. The Warish King sends Valanna back to Pestle to verify that the King of Pestle is no longer under Warish control. The Vashtan menace continues to infect the countries of the world and embroil both Trak and Valanna in civil conflict, while neither of them can shake off the attraction both of them feel towards each other. FANTASY – EPIC / SWORD & SORCERY / New Adult
The next installment of Power of Poses, Book Three, is scheduled for a March-April release. Titled Magician in Captivity, it continues the two storylines of Valanna and Trak as they pursue different paths in different countries. As you might surmise, Trak is imprisoned, at least once and Valanna has to fight troubles of her own as new revelations entwine our two star-crossed couple into the turbulent events of their world.
The first draft is about fifty percent completed. For those of you who have waited a long time for the second book, have faith. The third book is definitely coming.
