Obviously I’m terrible at blogging, but I wanted to show you the new cover for the upcoming fifth installment of the Unwilling series. As the cover says, title of the next installment is The Unwilling Accomplice and it continues our heroes’ journey to smash all the Region Stones before Canavar can use them to wreak more havoc on the world.
As a related aside, the sidebar to the left now shows a Progress Meter for the book(s) I’m working on. The final word count is a guestimate, but it gives you a good idea how many weeks (or days) out for publishing time.
Since it’s been way too long since I updated my blog, I thought I’d share the cover for my upcoming fantasy/adventure/comedy YA series. The small version is on the left, but if you’d like to see it in a larger format click here.
The tentative release date is the end of February 2014 (so this month). The second book in the series is also in the editing stage and will be ready for release at the end of March. After that all bets are off, but you might want to put your money down on the final two or three books being put out in successive months.
Here’s the blurb for your consumption:
A serious fantasy series that doesn’t take itself seriously.
An old man, a young, armor-wearing girl, and a farm boy walk into a story, and this is what you get; a fantasy series of monsters and mayhem, where each day leads them into new troubles and intrigue. Fred is the farm boy, a serf bound to his lord by the debt of his deceased parents. He’s thrown out into the world against his will and into the company of an armored young woman by the name of Pat and her cloaked, bearded companion, Ned. Together they make an unlikely group as they wind their way along the roads of Ralcott, bound for the journey of a lifetime.
A bit belated (well, very belated in the case of the third book), but I have released the final book in the Blood Guardians series!
Here’s a synopsis for the third book, Weathering Tides (these can of course be found on their book pages, along with buying links):
Will and Violet’s adventures lead them far afield as they travel across the ocean in search of answers. On the Continent they find themselves among new friends and old enemies as they track down a kidnapped vampire in the hopes that he can save their race from the plague.
And here’s one for the fourth, Freed Souls:
A dark secret lies hidden away in a far-off mountain for countless centuries.
Will and his companions race after their captured friends in a desperate move to save the vampire race from extinction by the disease, or a horrible slavery through Stenson’s control of the cure. The chase takes them to Constantinople where they meet up with new friends and foes, and find that their problems only skimmed the surface of the surprise that awaited them at the end of their journey.
This series was a joy to write (even if I tore my hair out trying to do research for some of these obscure areas). Next up is a different genre, fantasy!, with a little more zaniness. I’ll be sure to give you guys a sneak peak of the first few chapters when the whole book is done, and see what you think. Until then, enjoy reading!
