Announcing The Raven's Song, the second book in The House of Blood and Flames

The very last thing I expected to do an Friday was start writing a new book, but Percy weighed heavy on my mind and wanted his story to be told so I started writing.

Unlike the follow up I still have planned, The Raven's Song begins over a year before the events of Labyrinth of Souls and tells the story of how Percy ended up at Sunsuulyn Academy.

I thought his story would be told in flashback and memory, but now that I've started writing it, I can't imagine it being told in any other way.

Like so many in the World of the Ash Dancer, Percy's story is filled with tragedy and adventure. The pains he suffered forged him into the man he will become. 

As I have done with the last two books, I will post the draft chapters to Wattpad as they are written if you would like to follow along with the writing. If you want to wait for the final draft, I will let you know when the book comes out. 

Are you ready for this tale of piracy and lies? Join me as we explore the amazing early life of Percy Waldron.

Announcing the House of Blood and Flames

When I started writing Labyrinth of Souls, I knew it would be an introduction to a series about life at Sunsuulyn Academy, but I didn't expect to announce the name of the series so soon. 

House of Blood and Flames

The House of Blood and flames, also known as the Silver House, is the residence hall at the Academy where our characters will live.

Students began to call the Silver House the House of Blood and Flames after the inscription over the door which reads, "In the End, all we are is blood and flames."

The inscription was the motto of the Silver Khanzada Khotyn Od who endowed and supervised the construction of the building. In the original Nadibhasha, the words Blood and Flames are related to Courage and Honor. 

Residents of the House are carefully chosen. I don't want to say anymore about that just yet it might be seen as a minor spoiler of events in future books.

I hope you enjoy this series, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts about it.

Shine Like Thunder is coming to the World of the Ash Dancer!

I am thrilled to announce that my novel Shine Like Thunder is coming to the world of the Ash Dancer! This book has long been a fan favorite, and I always felt like there was something wrong with it. After a series of discussions with Brian, we have decided to make a new edition of the book to bring it into the World of the Ash Dancer.

What does that mean?

The vast majority of the story will remain intact, while certain elements will be enhanced and others will be altered to bring the story into this epic fantasy world. 

Most of changes will be the names of empires and places, but the one I am most excited about is that Izumi's story will be brought out in a fresh new light.

If you have any questions about this new edition, I would love to answer them. Drafts of the second edition will be posted on Wattpad as usual. This is just the beginning. More exciting news is coming soon.
