Works in Progress

Stories In Progress At the Current Time…
Latest Update: March 7, 2017

–I’m currently working on Lords of Kellesborne, giving it a final read-through so I can get it re-released (late March), and Fires of Ballian (re-release approximately mid-April). Once the revisions are done on these, I’ll get back to work on Dark Magick Rising. Dark Magick is currently sitting at around 72,000 words. I plan to have it finished this spring.  It will be released after the first four books are all out.  I’m trying to balance my time right now with writing new material and re-reading/editing older books so I can get them back up for sale.  A bit of a juggling act, but it’s working out so far. Stay tuned!  :)

darkmagickrising-new_medDARK MAGICK RISING
*Book 5 in the Draegan Lords series

The direct sequel to An Unexpected Magick, and the lead-in to Circle of Ariend. Chronologically, this story takes place shortly before the end of the Lords of Kellesborne (Book 2) and finishes around the beginning of Circle of Ariend (Book 6). I call Dark Magick Rising Book 5 but it’s almost concurrent with Fires of Ballian, which is Book 3.  Yeah, complicated.  My advice…just roll with it.  :)  If you read the whole series, you can read An Unexpected Magick and Dark Magick Rising after you read Fires of Ballian.  But you’ll definitely want to read Unexpected and Dark Magick before you start Circle of Ariend when it’s released. Because there’s a lot of content in Unexpected and Dark Magick that will be important in Circle of Ariend.

CIRCLE OF ARIEND
*Book 6 in the Draegan Lords series

(High fantasy/shapeshifter)
Projected length:  Novel/Extended Novel
Main protagonists:  Gaige and Keiran
Setting:  The fantasy world of Velensperia
Progress:  This one has been partially written and rewritten many times, but eventually I realized the scope was just too big to get everything into it that I needed.  Which is why the two Wen and Wesley books (An Unexpected Magick and Dark Magick Rising) came into existence. Those have allowed me to cover ground and important information that was necessary to the plot of Circle of Ariend, and the Draegan Lords series overall, but that didn’t easily work into Circle of Ariend without making that book too unwieldy. Once Dark Magick Rising is finished, I’ll be diving back into Circle of Ariend again. My plan is to keep the first couple of chapters of Circle that I had originally written, and pick up from there writing fresh.
Tentative release:  TBD

Stories I Plan To Write in the Future…

(In no particular order… I pretty much work on whatever project strikes my fancy at any given time. Also, don’t be surprised if you see some of the titles below move up to the “currently working on” list, or vice versa, or if you see totally new titles added to either list.  These lists aren’t set in stone and are meant to be used only as general guidelines.  Creativity…she be a fickle goddess!  LOL!)
