Well friends, I promised this was going to be a busy year. I have 11 titles slated to be published/rereleased with new covers. First in line is a 4 book series I began writing back in high school. I made it 120 pages before I realized I like none of what I wrote. It got put on the backburner for a long time- at least until 1997 when I was on the Korean DMZ for my second tour over there. I managed to finish it that time but never made any headway on the following books. At least until last year. I split book one in half and finished the story. My editor said it was every bit as good as Game of Thrones- but I’m not qualified to answer that. You all are though.
Here’s a little taste:
The Staff of Life has been lost for a thousand years. Imbued with the powers to dominate all life, the Staff can save or ruin the Free Lands. Many have sought out the Staff. All failed. Until now.
Aron Kryte has served the Hierarchy for years. Honorable. Duty-driven, the young man has risen through the ranks of the venerable Golden Warriors. Born into this life, Aron patrols the Free Lands, maintaining the long peace. Little could he know that the world he knows is built upon lies. His quiet summer days are shattered when he is led into an ambush by the man whose brother he once killed.
Imelin is the last of his order. A powerful wizard and member of the High Council, he has ever harbored the secret desire for power. Darkness dwells in his heart. He defects from the Council and begins a war of attrition that will bring the Free Lands to their knees.
Events are set in motion that will change the Free Lands forever. War brews. The ancient elven fortress of Dol’ir is overrun by a timeless enemy, the survivors forced to flee. Traitors rise. Armies gather. Only a handful of men and women stand against the coming storm. It begins in Galdea, where an aging king is slowly losing control.
Preorders are available now through Monday. Please share with friends or go ahead and be the first in line. I can’t wait to see what you all think. Law of the Heretic Preorder
