After much consideration I have decided that I’m not happy at all with the way Curse of Blades turned out after being divided into three parts. Because of this, I will be releasing the sequel, King of Blades, as a single volume instead of in serial as I had planned. I will also be re-releasing Curse in one volume as well, once I have put it back together and re-edited it.
I also plan to release a better edited second edition of For the Love of a King.
All three releases will happen early next year. I apologize for the wait but I want to make these books as good as possible before asking readers to pay money for them.
Now available from Amazon, Curse of Blades: Book 2!
The next installment in the story of Coulta, Wildas, Anil, and Myri is finally here!
Blurb: Coulta has helped bring Wildas, Crown Prince of Phelin, home to the capital of Ryal. As the prince’s new protector he is charged with Wildas’s safety while the threat of war looms like a shadow over Ryal and assassins search for them. His curse binds him to his duty even as his own life is put in danger to protect the prince, and it’s a curse he knows he will never live without.
Wildas longs to give Coulta a better life than what he is used to, but all he can do is offer friendship and respect to the best of his ability – and pray that Coulta never sacrifices his life to save Wildas’s. And all he can give to Myri the healer and Anil the horsemistress, the others who helped bring him safely home, are new jobs while they wait on news of the homes and loved ones they left behind.
But Ryal is no longer the safest place to live and royalty not the safest friends to have when others are planning on the absolute destruction of the royal family.
For the Love of a King is now available in print from Amazon and CreateSpace.
I’m also working on setting up my own online store where readers can buy signed copies directly from me, as well as other book-related items.
Check back for more soon!
The first book in my Curse of Blades series is now available from Amazon (other sellers and formats coming soon!).
Curse of Blades is the story of Coulta, a cursed assassin tasked with killing one of the most important men in the country of Phelin, and what happens next.
Here is the official blurb:
Coulta was born with a curse, one that forces him to obey the commands of those with authority over him. At only five years old, his father gives him up into service of a powerful lord, hoping to give Coulta a better life. But it was a mistake. Varin turns Coulta into an assassin, someone who can’t stop himself from killing even the most innocent person he was commanded to murder. Despite the pain of a life out of his control, Coulta does have hope; hope that he will one day meet the person his mother claimed would free him of his curse.
Wildas is the Crown Prince of Phelin. He has known nothing but luxury and comfort, not the pain and suffering of a cursed killer. He has no idea that his life is in danger, that assassins are lurking in the shadows of the next city he will visit on behalf of the Crown. Nor does he know that his very soul is tied to one of those assassins, a tie that not even death could ever break.
Anil lost her entire family to a winter illness and has asked herself time and again why she alone was spared. Only the chance encounter with two mysterious men will answer that question for her.
Myri is a healer in a small village. She never expected to be healing the Crown Prince himself after a dangerous encounter with an assassin. Can she truly save him? Or is danger shadowing their every move?
Hey guys, sorry I’ve been gone. I recently learned I’m being laid off from my “real job” so I’ve been spending all my time looking for a new one.
Unfortunately, this may delay the next publication, but I’m really working on staying on track with everything. Who knows. It will only be pushed back by a few weeks if I need to delay it. Promise.
I’m also working on some new promotional stuff. Stay tuned!
My first novella from the Ayrith universe is now available! As soon as it is no longer listed as “in review” I will post the link and update the pages about it. I’m excited!
Here’s the Amazon link. Price is $2.99, though it is a part of Kindle Unlimited.
My plan is to see how Kindle Unlimited works for me, but once the 90 days is up, I will likely be posting the book elsewhere as well. There will also be a print version available at that point.
