Darkness Rising Book Two: The High Priestess

How to stop a war… or start one.

Far from the shattered worlds of the Ruined Courts lie the Golden Kingdom and the Eternal City, where Princess Monika, High Priestess of the Cynosure, has been plotting to kill Drake’s friend Jon.

To stop the attacks, Drake must travel to the Eternal City and confront its mysterious, powerful rulers – and Monika – to end the threat against Jon and avert a war between the two powers.

It won’t be easy. Drake and Monika were once lovers, and the Golden Kingdom has hated the Ruined Courts and everyone in it for a hundred thousand years.

Book Two of Darkness Rising: The High Priestess is available in Kindle Format, Paperback, and Hardcover.

Darkness Rising Book One: The Sorcerer

Be careful when answering the door…

University student Geoffrey and his housemate Jason are living ordinary lives until a mysterious stranger, Jon, shows up wounded on their doorstep. Minutes later, inhuman assassins show up to finish the job, and then the military arrives.

The military takes all three into custody. Geoffrey and Jason discover that Jon isn’t from Earth, and they don’t think the day can get more frightening, but then an otherworldly sorcerer smashes through a window to rescue them.

Or kill them.

Prince Daeren Drake of the Ruined Courts isn’t being entirely clear about his intentions.

The Sorcerer is the first book in a new prequel series telling the story of the events that led up to The Awakening series from the perspective of Daeren Drake and his companions.

The first book in the series will be released November 1st, 2023 in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle ebook.

The second book in the series, The High Priestess will be released in January 2024.

Riders on the Storm upcoming release!

The Endless Realms Book Two: Riders on the Storm is on track for a release on August 1st (maybe a day or two earlier).

Darkness Rising Book One: The Sorcerer  is on track for a November release. The Sorcerer  is Daeren Drake’s story, before the Awakening…

Finished Draft

The complete draft of The Hand of Providence Book Three: Wheel in the Sky is finished! Happy Dance. The book will be roughly the same size as the previous two books in the series.

I’ll let it sit and percolate for a couple of weeks, then go through and do line edits. Then I’ll send it off to my editor. The usual.

Not sure about a release date yet.

The Endless Realms Book Two: Riders on the Storm is the next release in August. It will be closely followed by Darkness Rising Book One: The Sorcerer in November.

Upcoming releases and WIP

The Endless Realms Book Two: Riders on the Storm is on track for an August 1st release in Kindle, paperback, and hardcover.

I am currently writing The Hand of Providence Book Three: Wheel in the Sky, I’m at about 60%, so it is going well. Readers familiar with my other series will see a friendly face they know.

After Riders on the Storm, the next book released will be Darkness Rising Book One: The Sorcerer, a series which tells the story of Daeren Drake and the events immediately before the Awakening. Readers will be happy to know that the first three books of the series are finished and the next two are plotted out.

Thank You!

Just wanted to make a quick shout out to everyone who downloaded or purchased one of my books over the weekend.

I Won’t Cry for Yesterday reached #25 in Occult, and #128 Urban Fantasy on Amazon. Not bad!

The sequel, The Instruments of Faith, did well also.

My current writing project is the third book in that series. I’ll give more info about it as I get closer to completing it. As of today the manuscript is just under 30,000 words with a target of 80k.

Other Series

I wanted to give a quick update on my writing.

The Dark Plaza is out and doing well. Also, the Kindle version of I Won’t Cry for Yesterday is on sale over Easter Weekend for the low low price of free! If you haven’t tried my seemingly unconnected Hand of Providence series, now is a good time to try it out.

I say seemingly unconnected because all of my books are connected stories. You won’t see many familiar faces in the first two books of the contemporary series, but it is connected. The next book in the series (in progress) will have more interconnections with the others.

Book Two of the The Endless Realms: Riders on the Storm is due out this summer.

After that I’m pleased to announce that a prequel series about Daeren Drake will begin releasing this fall. I say begin, because the first three novels are finished and with the editor! Book One of Darkness Rising: The Sorcerer will be out this fall.

The Dark Plaza is available!

The Dark Plaza the final book of The Awakening is now available in Kindle and Paperback, with the Hardcover going live sometime this weekend.

I’m very excited to say that all of novels are now available in hardcover.

To those who may be concerned, Tebrey has a cameo in Riders on the Storm, due out in August, and will return in Star’s End.

The Dark Plaza Preorder is live!

The Dark Plaza, the Final book of the Awakening series is now live on Kindle preorder. The paperback should also be available April 1st (no joke).

The publication was moved up to make room for all the books I’ve been writing, and also because sales have spiked recently. Riders on the Storm will be out in August, and the first book of a prequel series about Drake after that…

Some Updates!

First, let me say thank you to everyone buying The Instruments of Faith, I’ve sold more books in the last two weeks than I did last year. I hope you like it. The book was definitely a labor of love.

The Dark Plaza goes on preorder in two weeks! Yes, the final book in the Awakening series is almost here. The paperback will be available around the first of May, alongside the ebook.

Don’t worry though, Hrothgar Tebrey will return in a new series in the future.

Next up in news is that Riders on the Storm, the second Endless Realms novel is with the editor. That book should be out this fall. Fans of other characters will be happy to see a few of them in this book as well. All of my books are interconnected to some degree.
