With the launch of The Five Emerge almost two months behind us, I thought it would be a good time to offer a quick peek behind the curtain of this mad writing laboratory. The editor (amazing wife) and I have been working hard on Book Three of The Kingdoms of the Core, and we couldn’t be more excited to be able to stop calling it “Book Three.” From now on, let it be known as…


We’re about fifteen percent through the first draft and loving all the new developments in the story, characters, and world. More to come…

In other news, after several years of brainstorming, plotting, writing, pondering, idea-scrapping, re-plotting, epiphany-hunting, publishing, and a whole lot of finger-crossing and deep breathing…we’ve finally landed on the best way to tell the rest of the story living inside my head (and within the hundreds of pages of notes scattered throughout my hard-drive)… Trilogies.

Yes, trilog(ies) plural, as in many. I’m not ready to reveal (nor am I quite sure), the exact number of installments, but, suffice to say, lovers of the characters and events of Taeurn (and perhaps beyond) will have a lot of adventuring to do in the years to come.

For those keeping count, yes, The Five Endure will be the third published book in The Kingdoms of the Core series, making it the final installment in what I am now calling “The Five” trilogy. Later this year when, The Five Endure hits the e-shelves, I’ll be shoving off on the next set of three. But you’ll have to wait to hear that title.

And if you haven’t had a chance to dive in, the link below will take you to the series page on Amazon. The books are all free in Kindle Unlimited, and Amazon is still offering a free month to new subscribers, so there has never been a better time to begin.
