For those of you who want Wielder: Master, it's coming too. I am on a writing roll right now and I plan to finish WM by the first half of February. (finish doesn't mean publish, it will still need to be edited and that requires scheduling time with my increasingly popular and therefore difficult to get quick editing time slots editor) But don't worry, I will be writing something else while I wait for a time slot. Actually, I plan to have a book a month for the foreseeable future! I am an active author again and it feels great!
If you have enjoyed my work with the sacred Land, you ain't seen nothing yet! I learned a lot from writing that series and with the Wielder Cycle. Lessons learned and mistakes that will not be repeated in future projects. I know it doesn't seem like it right now, but I can write a full novel in about half the time I used to. I know because I have three nearing completion as of this writing. I agonized over Crusade for the Sacred Land because by the time I got to the ending I wrote long ago, I didn't like it anymore and had to re-write it. I like it much better now!
Anyway, I am ready to tell you a little about the Shadow Legacy. It's the next series I have planned (and partially written). It concerns a MC named Thulen Cael who is a descendant of people who won the Great War between good and evil in the past. Only, unknown to him, his side was the evil side and his side left the losers in pretty terrible shape, while they lived in luxury with the best lands and protection. (of course he doesn't consider his people "evil")
Thulen is also a rare Enchanter, trained in the great magic university called the Arcanorum. He was in the midst of enchanting a sword for the king when the darn thing was stolen. Able to track his own enchantments, he and his warrior friend Vadis, go after the sword. Things go sideways from there.
Unlike the previous two series which were both coming of age style tales, this one is a tale of discovery complete with magic, divination by observing the behavior of cats, witches who can invade and manipulate dreams, Vampires (Mark Tyson Style vampires- you know I will put my own spin on them!) Traveling minstrels, games played to the death, and much, much more!
