"There are several points of magic within the world that are interesting, creative, and new. I will be interested to see how they tie back into the story as the series progresses. I'm excited to move on to the next book in the series, and will be keeping an eye on this author in the future." - Ben Hale, author of the 'Chronicles of Lumineia' series.
From the Author
I came up with the main characters when I was a teenager. I loved fantasy novels and I loved comic books and the first versions of these characters really showed those roots. Over the years, I kept notebooks about them and their history. I made a few attempts at writing their adventures. It wasn't until years later that my wife finally told me to stop dreaming about this story and write it down.
I wrote Eye of the Moonrat and most of what became Messenger of the Dark Prophet over a 15 month period. Then began a ten year process of editing and rewrites and submissions to publishers and agents. Those were long frustrating years and there were several gaps of time when I had thrown my hands up and put it all away. But the book got better. I honed my writing skills and added to it until the first book became two.
I had a small group of family and friends that had read the first two books and eagerly wanted more. They encouraged me to publish on Amazon for Kindle. I resisted that advice for a long time, but finally in May of 2012 I gathered my nerves and put the first book out there. I was inspired by the feedback. Book two and three came out soon after, followed by Hilt's Pride in December.
It has been more successful than I thought possible. If you had told me in 2011 that I would have four books out by this time in 2012, I would have thought you were crazy. Thank you for giving my books a chance. I promise to keep writing.
