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.
Happy New Year!
Soon I will have some information on upcoming works, but for now, why not have a read of this new character profile, the shadowy Simon Enlim.

UPDATE: Paperback is back up!
Some of you may have noticed that the paperback edition of The Heirs of Lydin seems to have disappeared from Amazon and other retailers. Don’t worry, its just having a slight retool for a new edition that should be out this coming week.
I will do an update when it is once again available.
E-Book and Kindle copies are still available in the meantime.
