It’s Finally Out? Yes, really!

I cannot believe I am actually typing these words. Volume Three of the Chronicles of Shadows – Exile’s Legacy – is finally freakin’ out! Yes, I am as stunned as you, good reader. In addition to the story itself, I redid the primary map and updated it to show that Teresland is no longer around and to show the area where Raven’s crazy forest is proliferating. There is a new map as well which depicts the Badlands where Croaking Wisdom’s people live and where the city-state of Uhtheim stands, home of the mysterious Dragon Queen. My maps still won’t be winning any beauty contests, but I do think they are much improved over the original.

Oh! You want to know where the actual book is, what it looks like and stuff. Well, okay, I guess I can help out in that area. Currently, only the ebook version is out. I expect the print version to go live around Wednesday (1/23/2019) after I have a chance to review the proof copy Amazon is sending me. You can check out Exile’s Legacy here (click image):

Writers, morality and the #MeToo fallout

Yet more good reasons to self-publish.

I’ve been pondering whether to write this post for the better part of a week. I’d been hearing rumbling from traditionally published authors about a contract clause that is as evil–their words and I agree–as the rights grabbing clauses that have become common in publishing contracts. But then, several days ago, an op-ed piece appeared in the NYT and I knew what I needed to write. The clause? A morality clause. Yes, you read that right. More and more traditional publishers are now including a morality clause in their contracts.
