After working on this sequel to The Serpent Kings for the better part of this year, THE WRAITH DANCER is finally available in all ebook formats as of Monday, November 29th 2011!

I'm very excited about this sequel, which takes up the story immediately following the conclusion of The Serpent Kings. For anyone who hasn't read Book One: The Serpent Kings is currently only $.99 cents on Amazon Kindle. I'm not sure how long it will remain this price, so I'd recommend getting a good deal for Christmas! That means you could get both novels for under $4 while this special lasts.

No Spoilers, but this novel is almost non-stop fantasy action from the get-go, introducing some new characters and Wraith Dancer gifts as well.

I do have a third book planned called THE SHADOW WALKER for this series and will update you on its release when the time comes. In the meantime, I'm working on a fantasy called FALLEN, as well as some sci-fi fantasy with BIOTECH. So, lots of stuff in the pipeline as usual. There's also a sequel planned for my fantasy novel, A WORLD WITHIN, to finish that story up. Stay tuned!

New Short Story Will End Up as a Novel!

I recently entered a 600 word fiction writing contest I was approached with and now intend to extend the short into a novel in 2012. BIOTECH is available for free download to ebook readers over at It's very difficult to come up with any kind of story in only 600 words--literally about one page--but I think I've got a cool plotline to work with. Check it out if you like sci-fi fantasy and let me know what you think!

The Wraith Dancer is still on track for a December release, hopefully by Christmas, and The Serpent Kings is currently discounted at Amazon to only $.99 cents!! Get it cheap while Amazon has this low price...I don't control it!

New Covers and New News!

I'm still hard at work on the new sequel to "THE SERPENT KINGS," called "THE WRAITH DANCER," and still expect to see it out in all Ebook formats by Christmas 2011. In addition to this sequel, I now plan to finish the Serpent Kings as a trilogy, concluding with a final novel in 2012 entitled, "THE SHADOW WALKER." I had thought to title the novel as The Prophet King, but a recent epiphany changed my fragile mind on the matter.

I wanted to also share new covers for the REALM SHIFT TRILOGY that I think are much better looking! They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but we all know that isn't the case. Anyway, if a picture is worth a thousand words then I believe these new covers say much better things for the Trilogy which remains popular and is still one of my favorite fantasy sagas...check em' out if you haven't already!

The Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul

In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Dragons of the Valley by Donita K Paul is a continuation of her Dragons Series, young-to-young adult fantasy novels that present allegorical stories of faith and courage in the face of sometimes overwhelming opposition. Ms. Paul's novels are fun and inventive, taking place in a world completely of her own making with various higher and lower races of beings, as well as creatures galore; some familiar in concept while others are more original.
I had read Dragon Light, which I believe must be several novels back in the series and really enjoyed it, though admittedly I had a little trouble jumping in midstream in her continuing storyline--figuring out what was going on and who was who. With patience I figured out the good guys and bad guys and enjoyed the book.
Again, I found myself having to get my sea legs before I could get into the story. But that's just the way it is when you come into a series way down the line and are unfamiliar with the basic characters. The hero in Dragons of the Valley seems to have come from the Vanishing Sculptor; one or two novels just understand where your starting in it before you get frustrated. Adding to that was the need to come up to speed on who the races and creatures are as well...however there is a character index in the back to help with this. As always, Donita weaves a wonderful tale that younger readers and fantasy fans will enjoy. Personally, I had some difficulty maintaining my interest, because I kept having to refer to the character index in order to stay up to speed :) I suppose if I had began Lord of the Rings at The Two Towers I would have faired no better. However, Ms. Paul's novel is full of interesting characters, intrigue and lots of action. I definitely recommend giving it a read if you enjoy fantasy with christian allegory.

What others are saying about Dragons of the Valley:
Chiril is a peaceful prosperous land. However the tranquility ends when an army invades the country. Tipper Schope must hide three statues because if the enemy gets it will mean the end of her nation as she knows it. She enlists her Bealomondore the artist to help her with her quest. He understands he must wield a sword like he did a brush.

At the same time that the terrible foe marches into Chiril, a horrific beast is stalking and killing anyone in its path. No one is safe from the predatory Grawl. Time is running out for the two heroes and their companions as they struggle to reach the Valley of the Dragons where they plan to leave the statues.

The latest inspiration dragon fantasy (see Dragonknight and Dragonquest) is a fabulous tale that, as always in a Donita K. Paul thriller, takes the audience soaring across the author's vivid mythical landscape. As chaos threatens the land, Tipper and Bealomondore are heroic figures; not because they may succeed, but due to risking their lives against overwhelming odds as for instance a peace loving artist picks up the sword. Action-packed with deadly perils from outside coming in and inside expanding out and with a strong cast especially the champions, fans will need a seat belt as this fast-paced novel never takes a respite.
