Thank you for your interest in my writing. My website is in desperate need of revamping, but I'll try to fill you in on what I have out and what is coming soon. Copies of my books can be bought directly from me (and you can have them signed and dedicated if you wish) from my store.
A bit about my series
I want to take just a moment to discuss the works I have in series, as it can sometimes be confusing to people. First I should mention that my new series, Legend of the First Empire, has five books and all of them are written. The first book in this series will be coming out June 28th, 2016, and I don't yet have dates for the other four, but as soon as I do, I'll let you know. The titles of the books are: Age of Myth | Age of Swords | Age of War | Age of Legends | Age of Empire. All five books are setup in goodreads so you can add them to your shelves now if you wish to be notified when they are released.
Then there is my Riyria novels. This series is currently nine books in total, consisting of two series: The Riyria Revelations and The Riyria Chronicles. As if that wasn't confusing enough, the six-books of Revelations were initial self-published and are no longer available for sale. When re-published, Orbit made three, two-book omnibus editions which break down as follows:
- Theft of Swords contains (The Crown Conspiracy & Avempartha)
- Rise of Empire contains (Nyphron Rising and The Emerald Storm)
- Heir of Novron contains (Wintertide & Percepliquis)
When I wrote the six books of Revelations, I followed the same process as with the Legends of the First Empire, which is to say that I wrote the entire series before publishing any of the books. This allows me to create a story with interwoven plot threads and a satisfying conclusion. I didn't expect there to be any more stories with Royce and Hadrian, but pressure from my wife (who has a crush on Hadrian), and outcries from my readers, encouraged me to write the Chronicle books. The idea behind Chronicles is to explore the origins of Riyria and show some of the adventures the pair had during the twelve years they were together before the start of Revelations. These books are being written in such a way that I can conclude the stories at any time if it appears that Riyria is overstaying its welcome. For this reason I never know if I'll come out with another Chronicle until after the last one is released. As for reading order, you the two series are designed so you can read them chronologically or in the order of publication. Personally, I prefer order of publication, but quite frankly I've heard enough feedback from people who have read either way that I an recommend both. So it's really a matter of your own personal reading preferences. Here's a handy guide you can use when deciding which would be best for you.
