WIP


This is my works in progress page.  Here is where you'll find out about what I'm writing now and what to expect from me in the future.

Legends of the First Empire


As with The Riyria Revelations, the First Empire had all books written before the first one is released.  For the most part these are in the hands of others (copy editors, alpha readers etc) and I'm waiting on feedback from them before I can do anything else with the stories. After releasing Age of Myth, I spent some significant time (about a year) editing the end of the series (and it grew from 5 books to 6) Here is the status of each:
  • Age of Myth: Released 6/28/16
  • Age of Swords: in copyediting scheduled for 6/20/17
  • Age of War: alpha input gathering scheduled for Jan 2018
  • Age of Legends: First Round Alpha input implemented, waiting on 2nd Alpha Scheduled Jun 2018
  • Age of Wonder: First Round Alpha input implemented, waiting on 2nd Alpha
  • Age of Empire: First Round Alpha input implemented ,waiting on 2nd Alpha

Riyria Chronicles #4: Untitled




Status: Yes, there will be a fourth Chronicle book. I'm working the first draft now, and anticipate it will go go to alpha at the end of February 2017. The writing has gone smoothly and without any significant problems. Beta reading will likely start in early April. If you want to be a beta reader, (you can sign up here).

The 4th book will be released in an unusual way (due to a non-compete clause with my First Empire books). Initially it will only be available directly from me (via Kickstarter & buying direct) it will also be released in audio as well. Also, you can add the book to your goodreads shelf by clicking here.

Hollow World Sequel



Status: In the queue

Hollow World was written as standalone novel. However, after I finished it, there were a number of plot ideas that came to me that I would enjoy exploring further. Because I have several committed projects, namely The First Empire and The Riyria Chronicles, it's a bit premature to announce any new story with Pax and Ellis, but I do plan on writing a sequel to this world and with these characters.




Fall of Percepliquis
Status: In the queue

In The Riyria Revelations, references are made to the fall of the original Empire when Percepliquis was destroyed and the Heir of Novron went into hiding. This book would take place 1,000 years prior to the incidents of The Riyria Revelations and 2,000 years after the books in the Legends of the First Empire. It will feature the Wizard Esrahaddon and Jerish, the first Guardian of the Heir. If you are interested and want to be notified when it is coming out use the button below:
