I want to thank my contributors, Stephen Chase for the wonderful maps, Miranda Schmidt over at Briar Rose Editing for agreeing to edit my novel, and my wife and family for letting me just write. Novel details.
Stoc will be the third novel in the New Druid Series. Look for details here but expect publication in Summer 2017.
In advance of the publication of Craobh: A New Druids series, Volume Two, I am now offering Duilleog: A New Druids series, Volume One for FREE over at Smashwords. This should allow those who want to dive into my world unfettered access to the start of the story. My new editor, Miranda Schmidt is doing a wonderful job in making my mess readable.
My new editor, Miranda Schmidt is doing a wonderful job in making my mess readable. Craobh is a terrific continuation of the Will Arbor storyline and the return to Belkin should make most people happy and aching for more.
This second go-around at writing has been much easier. Sadly, real life keeps interfering. I long for the day when all I have to do is write! Spread the word folks!
Craobh will be published on May 31, 2016, on Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords.
I just completed Part Three of my New Druid Series. Which means I am halfway through Craobh, Volume Two. Word count at this point is just over 67,000 words which is a great place to be for a first draft.
I am really pleased with Craobh. I love the story. I love how it moves along. I love the new characters. Part Four awaits. This part is going to be hard to write. Bad things are never easy to write. No spoilers, though!
Visit a land where druids have all but been eradicated and Gaea stands on the brink of wiping out mankind. Join Will Arbor as he awakens his legacy of druidic powers and begins a journey of self-discovery.
Enter a world where the Church of the New Order seeks to destroy this last druid, remove the Lord Protector, and regain their control over the lives of the people of the Realm. Witness the horrors that only men with greed and lust for power can unleash.
This is a book that explores the strength of reason, the beauty of nature, and the lies of religion. A young man, ripped from his family, has raised himself in the wild and discovered a talent and love of nature and harmony. Duilleog captures the joy of his journey to discover truths and his own strength in the face of adversity.
Read as one young man tries to change the world.
Duilleog is the first volume in The New Druids Series. The next volume, Craobh, is due out Winter 2015, and will continue that voyage of self-discovery before culminating in the third volume, Stoc, due out Winter 2016.
