A snippet...

I am writing - I promise. Here's a snippet of Prince of the Furies:

Once the meal was over, many of the dignitaries went on their own venturing – as if the keep were their own possession. Most had lodgings in the Equinox and were free to inspect and roam, even walk the steep grounds about its stone foundation. The beacon was a source of wonder for those who chose to stand near, if that were possible at all. The peak of the mount was a solid rock, steep, slick, and rounded. If not for several skilled workers who affixed it in place, the beacon would have surely tumbled off in the wind. Instead, the light burned fiercely, and from the porch the Alliance and Turran gazed upon its flames.
“It will look even more marvelous in the night,” said Brenn, leaning against the parapet.
“It shall bring hope always,” added Turran. “My father had it commissioned, and I never knew. He has been full of surprises of late.”
“He seems certain of…well, everything,” replied Fauglir who turned back. Within the chamber the three lords remained in conversation, albeit, full of drink in Borgan’s instance.
Turran smiled, happy to see his father living instead of dying. “He is certain, Fauglir, certain we have won.”
“Does that mean it is over?” asked Andro.
“Far from it,” replied Turran, “it is coming. And after so long a wait, my father sees the end – the final part. Peace after so long a life of curses…”

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)
