Books currently in progress…


Dark Magick Rising
*Book 5 in the Draegan Lords series

This book is the direct sequel to An Unexpected Magick, and the lead-in to Circle of Ariend. I’ve said this before, but I’m going to say it again…in order to keep up with the story in Circle of Ariend, you really, really, REALLY will need to read An Unexpected Magick and Dark Magick Rising first. There’s a lot of content in Unexpected and Dark Magick that will be important in Circle of Ariend. If you do not read these two Wen and Wesley books, you may end up wondering WTH is going on in Circle. Just sayin’… 🙂 That’s why I re-labeled and re-numbered the books before I began re-releasing them, and now Unexpected is book 4, Dark Magick is book 5, and Circle is 6. It means they should be read in that order.

(High Fantasy/Shapeshifter)
Projected length:  Extended Novel
Main protagonists:  Wen Daneson and Wesley Brannock
Setting:  The fantasy world of Velensperia

Update January 30, 2019:  I’m at around 179K words now. Whew! Got a fair amount done during NaNoWriMo in November. Realistically, I’ve got probably 4-5ish chapters still to write. I’m working on a big “Holy shit!!” reveal moment in the story, which is pretty awesome because it’s been building for five books! 🙂 

Release date: This book will be serialized on my blog starting February 6th, 2019. Two chapters a week, while I finish writing it! Once the book is finished and the final chapters have posted on my blog, then, after it’s been edited, it will be released in its entirety in ebook, probably late summer/early fall 2019. But until then, you can check it out on my blog…a new chapter every Wednesday and Saturday until it’s done!


Circle of Ariend
*Book 6 in the Draegan Lords series

(High fantasy/shapeshifter)
Projected length:  Extended Novel (100,000+ words)
Main protagonists:  Gaige Rizik and Keiran Hareldson
Setting:  The fantasy world of Velensperia
Progress:  This one has been partially written and rewritten many times, but eventually I realized the scope was just too big to get everything into it that I needed.  Which is why An Unexpected Magick and Dark Magick Rising came into existence. Those have allowed me to cover ground and important information that was necessary to the plot of Circle of Ariend, and the Draegan Lords series overall, but that didn’t easily work into Circle of Ariend without making that book too unwieldy. Once Dark Magick Rising is finished, I’ll be diving back into Circle of Ariend again. My plan is to keep the first couple of chapters of Circle that I had originally written, and pick up from there writing fresh.
Tentative release: TBD


Also in progress or planned for down the road…

(In no particular order… I pretty much work on whatever project strikes my fancy at any given time. Also, don’t be surprised if you see some of the titles below move up to the “currently working on” list, or vice versa, or if you see totally new titles added to either list.  These lists aren’t set in stone and are meant to be used only as general guidelines.  Creativity…she be a fickle goddess!  LOL!)
