I am nearing completion of the first draft of the 6th and final book of the Sacred Land Legacy. I only have a few more chapters to write and then it's on to the second draft. I have allotted more time for rewrites and editing for this book because it is the final and I don't want to forget something or leave something out.
I want to thank all the fans who have stuck with me during all the changes and rewrites of the entire series. Fans have been very vocal about leaving the series as 6 books and not combining them into a trilogy so that's what I am doing. I think I have gotten them to the point I am happy with them. Book 6 will wrap up the story. There will be no teasers for the next Sacred Land series. I do not plan to write another Sacred Land series for a few years, but I will definitely return to it at some point. I will be finishing up the final Wielder Cycle book, Wielder: Master next so there will be one more book set in the Sacred Land world before I move on to something else. I do have another epic fantasy series planned but it will have absolutely nothing to do with the Sacred Land books and will stand on its own. It's a four volume series set in a completely different world.
I am pleased to bring this series to a close. It has been a long and arduous task but it has also been rewarding. I can't help but feel a pang of loss as I have come to love many of these characters and I will miss them. I have learned a lot writing these nine books (Sacred Land and Wielder) and I plan to take those lessons on to the next series and to not repeat any of the bad ones!
To mark the end of the writing of the series I am offering book 1 of the Sacred Land Legacy, Dawn of the Sacred Land for free on Amazon June 11th and 12th and I am also offering book 1 of the Wielder Cycle, Wielder: Apprentice for free on the same dates.
Thank you for supporting me and I look forward to seeing you all when I write the next series! (which I will be doing very soon) Happy Reading!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I am just checking in to let you all know I am still hard at work. Not only will The Sacred Land Legacy and The Wielder Cycle get wrapped up in the next few months, but I am working on two different Urban Fantasy series. I should have the first book out in each series in the next few months.
I do have another epic fantasy series outlined (The Shadow Legacy) but I am taking a much needed break from Epic Fantasy after the completion of the Sacred Land books. I have rediscovered my love for Urban Fantasy and monsters! I wrote in this genre long before it was popular (while still in public school) and I had forgotten how much I loved it! Don't worry, I do still love Epic Fantasy and Sci Fi too! I will be writing across the board over the next few years. I have about three years of books outlined and ready to be fleshed out and written.
The Sacred Land Books have been a learning experience for me and going forward, I will use this knowledge to make each book in each series the best I can make it BEFORE its published.
