What Comes Next

| | Comments (0)

Just spent some time on the websites for Amazon and Books2Read, cleaning up some issues I'd noticed. I also changed the blurb for Fountains of Aescalon to:

The first thing Alexan knew was standing over an impossible corpse with an ichor-stained sword.


Exiled from home for reasons of politics and health, he has to orient himself in a new home, but he still has the skills he was 'born' with, skills which make him a wizard in his new homeland. A blasted, sterile cavern has many portals, but the one he chooses leads to the top of a huge tree, the source of magical power for an entire world.

Power is plentiful in Aescalon, but those who have it want to keep it all for themselves, and the arrival of a new wizard upsets the balance. It seems everyone who doesn't attack immediately wants something from him - including a cursed demi-goddess desperate to escape her fate who thinks Alexan may be able to help her.

But Alexan can't even help himself until he unravels the secrets of The Fountains of Aescalon

So what comes next?

Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to do some advertising and put the first two books of Politics of Empire (The Invention of Motherhood and The Price of Power) on sale prices for a few days each. Then I will release The End of Childhood, book three in the series.

I will also put the Preparations for War novels (Preparing The Ground, Building The People, and Setting The Board) on sale for a few days each prior to releasing the final novel in the series, Moving The Pieces.

Meanwhile, work on Gifts of The Mother continues, slower than I'd like due to day job but it is coming. If you want it to come more quickly, tell folks to buy my novels so I can afford to quit!

Happy Thanksgiving
