The first draft of The Errant Princess is now complete. Now comes the revising…
The second character profile from The Errant Princess has now been posted: Beran Genio, enjoy.
Here’s the first character profile from The Errant Princess, King Alusine the Great, ruler of Emparia and father of the eponymous princess.
Sorry for the absence, been distracted by various diversions, including Crusader Kings II (great game, by the way). But rest assured, I’m back on it, and The Errant Princess is progressing and will be released this year.
I’ll post more on it as the months continue.
2018 will mark the release of The Errant Princess, the second instalment in The Tales of Aelzandar. Below is the cover and preliminary blurb: Watch for this novella later in the year, and check back at this site for further updates!
A decade has passed since Aelzandar joined the Grey Mages. A new faith sweeps the lands of Goriinchia where an ambitious warlord unites the disparate tribes, but in the north Alusine Ran-Tyron ascends to the Emparian throne, hoping for a glorious and peaceful reign.
Aelzandar’s time with the Grey Mages comes to a tragic end, and though Alusine’s favour rescues Aelzandar from a horrific fate, Aelzandar cannot help but think of those he has lost, even as he tutors Alusine’s daughter, the Princess Ellinda, in the ways of the Art.
When Ellinda flees her loveless marriage, Aelzandar is honour bound to find her, even if doing so disturbs the ghosts of his past and uncovers a far more dangerous and insidious threat to the future.
We’re one month into 2018, and I’ve got a few different things on the go. So what am I currently working on?
First up is The Errant Princess, the second novella in the Tales of Aelzandar series. This story follows Aelzandar after he becomes a member of the Grey Magi, and chronicles, amongst other things, his discovery of the Tears of the Divine. It is set between 235 to 200 or so years before The Heirs of Lydin. This is expected to be released early this year.
I’m also working on The Tears of the Divine, the final instalment in The Ap’Lydin Chronicles, and the story of Bellaydin and Polnygar’s final confrontation with the Horned God. This is scheduled for release early next year.
Another work, tentatively titled Here Be Dragons. It is a short story that fits between The Slaves of the Horned God and The Tears of the Divine, and is about what Polnygar and her companions encounter near the Dragonwall of Tarken. No release date for this yet, I’ll have to see how this comes along.
More details on these and more as the year goes on.
