For weeks now I have been debating whether or not to announce my new planned series because i was afraid my current readers would think i was not finishing up the Sacred Land Saga and The Wielder Cycle.
The fact is I am indeed working on finishing The Sacred Land books and Wielder books. Like any author, i have to plan my next series way in advance so I can continue to work on writing books when one series ends. I have made a few mistakes with the Sacred Land Saga and I have learned a lot from the experience. I don't plan to repeat those mistakes! I have two series planned but I decided to go with this one next. The series is titled The Shadow Legacy and it has nothing to do with the Sacred Land or the characters of the Sacred Land . It is a brand new series.
It is about an Enchanter named Krassus who has to travel to a foreign land and finds that long ago a war between good and evil was fought and evil won! What's more, he descends directly from the evil leader who won the war. The land he has to travel through in pursuit of an enchanted sword he was suppose to give to the king is the land that lost the war. No one where Krassus is from remembers being evil, although they have all the resources and the best lands!
I have a lot of surprises planned for this series including a pretty awesome magic system my main character will be learning.
I am writing the first book (very slowly) right now, but only when I take small breaks from writing Legacy of the Sacred Land. I hope to have this first book done in late summer or early autumn 2015.
There are actually three books to complete before I can work on this one full time, Dawn of the Sacred Land should be done soon, then Wielder Adept and Legacy of the Sacred Land.
You can see the covers for all 4 books in this new series under the Shadow Legacy tab to the left.
