Ending of summer is a rough time for me. A lot of unpleasant things have occurred in my life going in September. This year I'm focusing on writing. It distracts but also gives me something to look forward to.
Merakoran Agendas is coming along nicely. Though I cannot say when this book might be ready (I'm targeting end of the year best case, early Feb worst case), I'm 52k words into it and I can see the framework of a really great story coming together. After all, someone has to tell the story of Tanians who are not priestesses, dragons, or mages!

I finally decided that it's time and picked up the following domains:
While this Weebly domain will remain active indefinitely, I'll be quietly working to convert all content over to FORSAKENISLES.COM for a consistent web experience with the content of my writing and the worlds they empower.
I'm also hard at work on the next book, which for now I've titled "Merakoran Agenda." This story picks up with Ash and Khalla following the story told in Bomoki's Gate. They're trying to put together a team to go back to Merakor. Behind the scenes, the Thieves Guilds of all the Isles' nations are vying for power and control over the black market material flooding them from Bloodstone. I'm 40,000 words into it and it seems likely that Ash and Khalla's relationship might not survive... or at least, Ash's secrets won't. I'm having fun with a Rogue Guild in Taysor headed by a new character named Grant. Grant and his team don't want to be bound by the rules of the other guilds and so do their own thing. They're compelling to write. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more updates.
