Fiery Fights and Vengeful Villains

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Cape Cod!

As my wife and I are preparing to pack up the 100-pound Slovakian Shepherd to head to the mainland for Christmas, I wanted to drop in to let you folks (and your friends and family) know that the series starters for both The Landkist Saga and Titan Online are deeply (or totally) discounted all weekend on Kindle. 

Valley of Embers is Free and Mastermind is 99c in the US and UK. The sale will run through Monday, December 27.

Ignite those Everwood Blades and get ready for the elemental epic! Or strap on those Superhero VR goggles and get ready for some comic book style revenge.

A Fantasy Conversation with Michael R. Miller

Hey all!

Just popping in to post a podcast I did with my good friend Michael R. Miller on his Discord server.

Miller is the bestselling author of the dragon rider fantasy epic Songs of Chaos, and in this wide-ranging conversation, we talk about everything from the Lord of the Rings versus The Hobbit films to reader reviews and our overall approach to the craft and mentality it takes to succeed in the fantasy book business.

Check it out on YouTube!

Immortal is Here!

Titan Online returns!

Two years after the surprise (to me) success of Mastermind, the virtual comic book world of Titan Online returns with Immortal.

In Book 1, we saw Karna enter the game world with a villainous origin story for the first time and tangle with its most powerful hero. Now, readers get to see how he fares against its most cunning villain.

For those who enjoyed Mastermind, I know it’s been a LONG wait for Book 2. The bottom line is, I’ve been splitting writing time between three series, so this one got put on the backburner for a while, but the good news is twofold: I’m already working on Book 3, so the turnaround should be much faster for that one, and I’ve structured this series so the first two books are satisfying reads with emphatic endings (which a look at reviews on Amazon will confirm for you.) There’s a big overarching narrative that culminates in Book 3, but I tend to write each book in three-act structures rather than episodically.


Immortal is Coming …

Titan Online is in chaos. Villains have always thrived on chaos.

With Leviathan dead, Karna thought he could finally go back to enjoying the game he loves. But his actions have created ripples far wider than he expected. Titan City is vulnerable, and War Town is full of those willing to take advantage.
One more so than others.

Anastasia, the hidden Queen of War Town, is hatching a plan – a plan which Karna finds himself at the centre of. With a new team of powerful NPCs and an increasingly abrasive robotic assistant, Karna must decide what, and who, he is willing to fight for.

A war is coming, and not everyone is immortal.

Double Cover Reveal!

Hello Freak Fantasy Savages!

The Monolith Books edition of The Frostfire Sage (The Landkist Saga Book 4) launches today!

And as a double whammy, we’re also revealing the cover for The Forever Night (The Landkist Saga Book 5.)

Thank you to Petrik Leo for hosting the reveal on, where you can read more about the series. 

I think Assassin’s Creed artist Pierre Raveneau did an incredible job bringing two of the most powerful Landkist characters to life: T’Alon Rane aka. The King of Ember and Ray Valour aka. The Eastern Dark. 

Books 6 and 7 will be coming by mid-2022, and I can announce that everyone’s favorite archer-turned-super Sage Linn Ve’Ran will be featured on the next cover. 

Pick up The Landkist Saga today!

Updates Galore!

Just wanted to drop in for some general updates on the writing front. 

First of all, the relaunched relaunch of The Landkist Saga is going well, with Books 1-3 currently out in the wild with their shiny new covers. Books 1-2 are currently available in Audio, read by The Witcher Saga’s Peter Kenny. Kenny is also recording Book 3 as we speak, so look for The Midnight Dunes audiobook to drop within the next month or two.

As for Books 4-5, we’re likely going to be looking at an accelerated launch window for them, with The Frostfire Sage scheduled for July and The Forever Night for September.

As for audio on Books 4-5, we’re probably going to be taking a pause for a while to see how things go with the first three before getting Peter back into the booth for the meatiest of the Landkist tomes.

As for the two-part grand finale, my ambitious goal would be to get Book 6 out by the end of the year, with Book 7 landing in the first half of next year to end the series. Writing on Book 6 hasn’t started yet, but the outlines are in solid shape. It’s possible both of these will hit next year, but if they do, the goal will be to release them back-to-back, as I know a lot of my OG Landkist fans have been patiently waiting for them.

In addition to Landkist, the runaway success that is Mastermind will see its long-awaited sequel touch down when Immortal hits in September. This one is going to have a simultaneous ebook-audio release, and while I don’t have the final cover, above is a sneak peak of the artwork.

This one was a LOT of fun to write, even if it took a while. It’s longer and more complex than Book 1, and given how that one ended, I think readers will be pleasantly surprised by the directions this one takes Karna, Starshot, Blackstrike and our favorite virtual villains in.

I’m going to be staying in the Titan Online world a bit longer before returning to Landkist. As I said above, I want to write Landkist 6-7 back-to-back, so I thought it only made sense to finish off Titan Online in the same manner.

Oh, and I haven’t forgotten about Sword Punk! It’s just going to have to wait its turn.

Until the next update!
