Here, there, everywhere

    

   Ah, the memories. The books came out early '11 and haven't looked back since. OK, that sounds a little silly, but I can say "Passage" came out I have looked mostly to the future (and that future would be 1654 A.E). Another year and lots of changes.

Here's another snippet from Book three, "Prince of the Furies":



A sapphire sky greeted them at the crest of a stony gap between taller peaks – Mount Kalia in the north and Mount Tullia in the south, a mother and daughter, wife and kin of Turrult himself who tamed this land. Beneath their stares, the valley of Karn spread out green and wide; the village perceptible as a tiny hamlet in the middle of forests and bare mounded hills. It was then Andro recalled the fire they had seen from the village.

“There should be evidence of such a thing. It had to be a grand blaze indeed,” he said.

   “If there is evidence, we shall find it soon enough,” replied Turran as they finished the last portion of the ascent. Before long the remnants of a large burn emerged atop a large boulder just as the next valley came into view in the west, haze-filled and gray. They dismounted to get a better look at the remains – it was anything but a regular campfire.

What's in a name?

A much-awaited update:

The timeline for getting book four done before the new year is on track. One edit is finished. The second edit is also complete thanks to some very helpful writing software (Grammarly, if you're curious). Now comes the final edit, and I am currently several chapters in....give or take a few pages. Needless to say, I am happy how everything is coming along; and more importantly, how the story is progressing.

Now a bigger announcement: I've changed the name. I have my reasons, but I wanted something a bit more accessible and curious. Drum roll please -- The Lords of Wintertide. So now the fourth installment of the Outcast Alliance series is coming close to fruition. I even have the cover ready to go so it will be an easy transition.

Ok, so now I have some writing software to push me along -- the previously noted Grammarly and organizer extraordinaire, Scrivener. These will certainly help me in the future. But what about the past? I have decided on somethi…

About time

What does the average author do after completing and publishing a book? Well, sit on it for two months, of course. Okay, that's not the norm, but that's exactly what happened here. No parties, no banners, or parades...nothing.

Well, what did I do? If you read my previous posts you will understand I am a man of my word. Once the Lords of Wintertide got published I was going to redo some things with the first three books -- slight cover changes, minor editing, and formatting nuances. Now they're all perfect! Or, as perfect as they are going to be in this lifetime.

So all four books of the Outcast Alliance Series are out and polished, ready for your scrutiny in paperback or Kindle. I'll even pop the Amazon Author Page link right here, and we're off and running (with book five somewhere down the line)...Enjoy!

End of the tunnel...

I finally have something to say.

Despite my best efforts at procrastination, I have a book. Book Four, to be exact. I am sticking with the Lords of Nordhiem (tentatively) as the title, as the Outcast Alliance series continues.
Now before you run out the door in heated excitement, there's bad news. It's not quite done yet. Please, put down the mouse and iPhone; click off that Amazon site and back away from the computer. I've editing to do.
I have apprehensions of even telling you I am finished, because editing is still a laborious event for me --  but oh so necessary if you want something remotely readable! (and yes, I do define my books as remotely readable) But that is where the magic happens -- sometimes literally -- and the story goes from readable to even enjoyable. 
So keep your eyes and ears open for more updates, and let's get this done in 2017! Thank you for waiting...and God Bless Texas!!! (hit the road, Harvey)
