Hey everyone. I’m back online after a bit of a hiatus. I’m finally coming out from under a lot of the “stuff” happening in life, and thank goodness for that. As a result, I’m writing again and I hope to be posting a bit more regularly here in 2020.
So what’s on my horizon? Honestly, digging into all the writing projects is at the top of the list. I have several WIPs that I need to get edited and hopefully get out in the next couple of months, some that may be ready as early as the end of January or early February. My goal is not to rush things, though, I want to try to keep the quality of writing solid.
I’ve got two finished novels, both headed to publishers as soon as I can do the edits. I have an outline for the next Forsaken Valor book and I’m outlining the follow-on series, (tentatively titled War of Valor). The fourth book of the Eoriel Saga is around 50% completion. I have outlines for Renegades IV, Shadow Space Chronicles VII, and several other book series that have been on the backburner for a while now. My goal is to hit 30 published novels by the end of the year.
I’m thinking 2020 is going to be a busy year. Hopefully it will be a good one as well. That’s all for now and thanks for reading!
There’s a lot of epic fantasy out there that feels dark, depressing, and populated by unpleasant characters who backstab one another for fun. The Last Champion is not that kind of epic fantasy.
The titular Champion character is heroic. The world he populates is under threat, the people he’s charged to protect are under threat, and he does his best to protect them. Korr is a warrior who does what he does because he’s very, very good at it. He’s a man who sticks to his customs and ways because that is all he has left, all he has to him, in an almost ronin-esque fashion that provides a gripping story.
There is plenty of action, plenty of character growth. The characters are vivid, the scenery is epic in scale, and there’s so much potential in the setting that as a reader, I was always hoping for more looks at the greater world. This really is epic fantasy, there’s a scope to the world that makes it feel big, feel populated, even though we only see a small part of the larger world.
It’s really rare that I can’t put a book down, but the story caught me and I read it in just a few hours. My only complaint about the book is that it ended and I’ll have to wait on a sequel. I highly recommend it.
