First, I want to point out a few new features here on my webpage. A fan contacted me and asked if I would put up the map of the Sacred Land Saga. I said Absolutely! I thought it was a great idea. It's difficult to see in print after Amazon and the formatting gods put the books together. So, from the home page you can go to the pull down menu and find the map. I tried and tried but I could not make the map bigger on my webpage so I uploaded the map to my Flikr account and put the link to it under the map on the map page. Simply cut and paste it into your browser and it will take you to the photo page to view the bigger map.
Second, I encourage everyone who is interested to go to my *home* page on this website and subscribe to get notifications of my next release(s). It's easy, it only takes a second, and I don't spam!
Third, Let me tell you a short story: Back in 2007, while I was writing the first book in the Sacred Land Saga, I wrote a cute little back story for Lady Shey called Wielder: Apprentice. (If you don't know who Lady Shay is go get my books!) My daughter, Kylie and I fell in love with her. So, as an experiment, I released a short novella of the entire back story. No editing, slapped together, it's embarrassing really. Years later, when I was getting ready to publish Defenders of the Sacred Land I made every effort to remove it from sale from any online store still carrying it. Well, that turned out to be nearly impossible and it still shows up occasionally. It is on my Goodreads page and someone gave it a 5 star review! Now that the Sacred land Saga is doing so well, people are actively seeking out my writing and any other of my tiles titles and are finding "GASP" that old version of Wielder: Apprentice! Since about 2011, I have been reworking Wielder: Apprentice as the first novel-length book in a new trilogy I call The Wielder Cycle. I had every intention of releasing it AFTER I finished the Sacred Land Saga. Well, now that people are finding that old, crappy Wielder:Apprentice I decided that I needed to release the new version to replace it. My next two releases will be close to one another. Wielder: Apprentice (Wielder Cycle) and Interlude: Homecoming (Sacred Land) I am not sure which will come first (Probably Wielder). I will work on finishing Interlude while Wielder is with the editor. As an exclusive to you fans who visit my webpage, I am revealing the covers for the new series (although I do not plan to release book two and three of the Wielder Cycle until after I finish the Sacred Land Saga) And I am including the new back cover blurbs. The Wielder Cycle is the story of Lady Shey from the time she was about 14 until she became a master wielder. This series is written a little differently than the Sacred Land Saga because each book is about Lady Shey at different ages and stages in her life. Each book will advance us closer toward (and the series ends with) the War of the Oracle (The war that created the Sacred Land) However, each book's main conflict is resolved before a new story about Lady Shey's development starts up in the next book.
