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):
If you don’t mind, after you’ve read the book, please, please, leave a review. Reviews both good and bad provide legitimacy when potential new readers are considering whether to read a series. In theory, you can leave a review using this link: Leave a Review for “Exile’s Legacy”
Hi ya! Another little update to let you know things are moving in the right direction. I have sent the manuscript for Book III (now officially titled “Exile’s Legacy”) to my editor and I hope to start seeing some edited chapters showing up in my inbox in the next few days. While I await those chapters, I have been working hard on the new cover and I am pleased to say it is nearly complete. I will hold off on the big reveal for a bit more.
In other news, a military sci-fi anthology called “Luck is Not a Factor” came out today. It features nineteen stories by as many authors, one of whom is yours truly. The anthology takes place in the Four Horseman Universe created by Chris Kennedy and Mark Wandrey. The stories surround a number of mercenary groups in the far future after the human race digs itself out of a bad situation and takes their badass selves to the stars. This new book, as well as a couple of its predecessors “Fist Full of Credits” and “Tales from the Lyon’s Den” serve as great introductions to the 4HU. Lots of varied perspectives. Some funny. Some heart-wrenching. Many full of hardcore action.
I have set up a poll on my FB group page to help determine the title for Book III. Please follow the URL posted below and vote. Get any interested friends to join in too, even if they just enjoy taking polls.
