May 20th, 2018 Update

The Avatar’s Flames got just a bit past 35,000 words this past week, which was about what I expected. Now, last time I said that at ~20,000 words, the book was likely about 1/5th done. I think I should clarify a little on what I meant. Ancient Ruins was about 117,000 words, Halls of Power about […]

May 13th Update

As I said last week, I got to work properly on The Avatar’s Flames, and it’s up to a bit over 21,000 words. The plot has changed significantly in some ways, but the overarching theme hasn’t adjusted in the slightest, which amuses me. Assuming the book is close to the length of Down with the Queen, I’m […]

The Thorned Wood

So, last week I explained something about the elves of Senkar, and in the process I told everyone about the Illisyr, or the dark elves, and how they were exiled into the Thorned Wood. I’m suddenly reminded of how another author I’ve known said ‘If I’m taking you to my cottage in the forest, it’ll […]

So I incorporated it into book 1 of Through the Fire, titled The Avatar’s Flames. I’m kind of bemused, because […]

Elves in Senkar

As I’ve said in many, many places, I adore elves. If I could be reincarnated as an elf, I’d be happy as a clam. That failing, I write about them, and I make no apologies about it. Thus, I’d be sorely remiss if I didn’t address them in Senkar and thus for Through the Fire. The […]

April 29th Update

I was on a roll this week, and I finished editing Ancient Dreams and sent it to the editor early. The book has only a couple of outright new scenes, but a lot of minor aspects of the book have changed to try to help the writing flow more smoothly. Since I finished it to that […]

April 22nd Update

I’m currently slightly less than two-thirds of the way through re-editing Ancient Dreams, and am hopeful about hitting a few self-imposed deadlines regarding it. There isn’t a huge amount to say about it at the moment… most of the things I’ve been working on has been clearing up wordings and the like. I suspect most of the […]
