September Update

Hey everyone,

Just letting everyone know that we are still moving forward on the third book in my series. To help generate some excitement I offered that short story for free (it will always be free) last month.

This month we will be running a promotion on The Crystal Seal (the first book in the series). From September 12th through September 16th The Crystal Seal will be FREE on Amazon Kindle. This promotion won’t last long so be sure to check it out!

First Hytrae Short Released!

Hey everyone!

I am excited to announce that I have a short story from the Hytrae universe to share (and its free!). I have to warn everyone, there are some spoilers if you have not read The Crystal Seal or The Candescent Vessel. I would say the spoilers are medium grade, not story ruining but would prematurely expose you to information you would not have had yet before reading the first two books.

 

That being said, I hope everyone enjoys this short story. It takes place between The Candescent Vessel and the third  book in the trilogy. Without further ado. Here it is,

ANOTHER JOURNEY FOR ANSWERS

August Update

Hey everyone!

 

I hope this summer has been going well for all of you. I have been busy these past few weeks, and I can happily say that some of the busyness has been working on materials for book 3! I am hoping to have a short story posted on my site here before the end of the month. It is written, but I am still working on reviewing it. It takes place between where The Candescent Vessel left off, and before book 3 begins.  I plan on having a title for book 3 for everyone somewhat soon as well, so stay tuned for more info on both these great things, and of course more updates on The Sage of Hytrae trilogy!

Caught off guard, but still moving forward

Hey everyone!

So like much of the rest of the 90s babies and many more, I have been enchanted by Pokemon Go. It has been a bit of a distraction and its a distraction I was not prepared for (go team valor!). Games are a sizable part of my life, and I try to write either in replacement of gaming sessions, or when I have breaks in newer games.

This summer I have Overwatch (minor surprise since I approached it with skepticism), World of Warcraft: Legion is on the way and I am super excited for that, but I was not expecting Pokemon Go (which is what Pokefans have been asking for since 95!)

Anyway, back to what this Author Blog is about.  The final installment in The Sage of Hytrae trilogy is still underway.  Since my last two books have been told from different perspectives (one from Cyan’s and the second from Lucy’s), we will be doing something a bit different for book three.  It is my plan (and how I have already started writing) to tell this story from three different character’s perspectives. Two of which we have heard their voices as the narration of the first two books. Book three will be adding a third character (keeping with some themes mentioned in The Candesent Vessel if you want a sneak peek!) who we will meet very early in our journey to the trilogy’s conclusion.

Stay tuned for more news on The Sage of Hytrae trilogy!

Summer is arriving quickly

Hey everyone!

Summer is getting here quick, and with it much warmer weather. I just got back from a short vacation. We went to eastern and northern Ohio, so lots of things to see and do in those places. One place we went to was the Wilds. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a wildlife conservation group, that works with animals from many different places around the world, studies them and tries to help improve their lives in captivity and when possible return them to the wild. You can find out more about them at: https://thewilds.columbuszoo.org/

I’m back home and feeling more refreshed and ready to pour out more creative works.  I’ve been keeping my thoughts towards The Sage of Hytrae series lately, we are close to finishing the trilogy!  I’m hoping to have some more updates as the summer goes on. Have fun everyone, and don’t forget to use sunscreen!

May is here, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.

Hey everyone!

I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! I spent a fair bit of mine with my mom (who has helped me proof my books along with my wife), along with a portion of my family.

Spring is in full swing, and lots of people are starting to put out their gardens.  Fun fact: gardens are popular with home owners in the realm of Hytrae too. While you might not have read much about that fact in the past, you would have met no less than three farmers in the first two books. See if you can name one of the farmers in the comments (without looking it up in the books, that’d be cheating 😀 ).

End of April Update

Hey everyone!

Here we are at the end of another month. It goes by so fast. If we were in Hytrae we would have more days in a year to count down!

Anyway, I hope everyone has had a chance to pickup my latest book The Candescent Vessel, its available all over now for just $9.99 (in paperback).

Its been a busy month, and busier ones are still ahead, I appologize for the absence in posting, I will try to make a better effort to at least make two posts a month even when things are busy.

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful spring!

April is here!

Hey everyone!

April is here, and with in comes more spring like weather and of course Thunderstorms (I live in Ohio).  I am hoping that this season brings lots of good things with it this year! Last week it had been a year since The Crystal Seal was released, and a full month since The Candescent Vessel came out. I have been working on getting things organized for Book three in that series (the final installment in the sage of Hytrae trilogy), as well as an entirely separate novel, that I will release more details on next week! So stay tuned!

End of March Update

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend.  We visited some family we rarely get to see which is always a nice treat.

I would like to thank everyone who has purchased The Candescent Vessel over the past month. This book has sold about as many as the first one did in the first month. As always I appreciate the feedback I’ve been getting, and I hope more people will have the chance to purchase one or both books soon! 😀

I plan to have some more news early next week, so stay tuned!

New things coming soon!

Hi Everyone!

With The Candescent Vessel being released, gears are moving for the next book… or books!

I’m happy to say that soon I will be posting an official announcement about a new project I’ve mentioned but not talked much about. I will say that it is a story taking place here on earth in a not so distant future. Don’t worry, I am still working on The Sage of Hytrae’s final installment in the trilogy. More to come soon!
