It’s been a busy week for me. I’ve been hard at work on Burden of the Crown, revisiting the characters from Merceria, but also doing some editing into the start of my new series, The Frozen Flame.
The two feel very different. Whereas the Crown series has a multitude of characters, The Frozen Flame has only two main characters, something which won’t change much in future books. Don’t get me wrong, there are many people they meet along their path, both good and bad, but ultimately, their tale is about just the two of them, Athgar and Natalia.
They come from two different worlds, and yet fate has thrown them together. Magic is much more prevalent in their stories, for they are both trained in the use of magic, a far cry from the mages of Merceria, and I must admit to having fun showing them utilizing their spells in inventive ways.
Their story continues after Ashes, and I’ve already started outlining more details for their second adventure together. On top of all this, we’ve received some excellent new book covers from our graphic artist, Christie Kramburger, and I get to do a book signing at the south Chapters store on this Sunday, 30 June. If you’re in London, Ontario, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, drop by and have a chat, it’s always nice to meet my readers.
Until next time,
