Fate of the Tyrant is Live!

Fate of the Tyrant by Kal Spriggs
Fate of the Tyrant by Kal Spriggs

Fate of the Tyrant is now live!  Get your copy just in time to enjoy over 4th of July weekend right here.  (I promise there’s plenty of explosions)

The Tyrant’s time has come.

Winter has come to the Five Duchies, a time of bitter cold when noblemen scheme and commoners wonder how to feed themselves through the long, dark months.

In the far north, the Warlord Tarjak Rusk stirs his forces, guided by the wizard Xavien, Herald to the dark spirit Andoral Elhonas.  Xavien knows that the time has come when the Five Duchies are vulnerable… and with the might of his master behind him, Xavien could conquer the civilized lands as an undisputed tyrant.

In the Duchy of Masov, Duke Hector the Usurper faces a civil war, brought on by the survival of Lady Katarina.  If he doesn’t squash this rebellion with the coming spring, he’ll face a war on two fronts.  Yet even if he wins victory, it will be a hard fought one against his own people, leaving scars that might never heal or even shattering the Duchy into splinters.

The fate of the Five Duchies might well be decided in Masov, but if Hector and Katarina cannot resolve their differences, then they’ll only be the first to fall to the raiders from the north.  Only if they can unite against him can they seal the fate of the tyrant.

You can get Fate of the Tyrant from Amazon as paperback and ebook.

Kal’s September Forecast

Well, September is here, fall is in the air, and Kal is currently hunched over a computer.  The good news is that I’m almost finished with The Shattered Empire and should have it done in the next few days.  The bad news is that I’m not yet done, which means the publishing date will most likely be bumped back to mid to late October.  Part of this is due to a heavy workload and parenthood, part of it is due to The Shattered Empire being a much larger book than The Fallen Race.

As soon as The Shattered Empire’s first draft is done, I’ll be sending it out to my alpha readers.  Right after that, I’m starting work on a couple of short stories and then going to work on the sequel to Echo of the High Kings: Wrath of the Usurper.  My goal is to have that one finished this year and published early next year.   Along the way I’ve got to finish the YA book, the Steampunk book, and work on a submission to a publisher.

So my forecast for September is writing, writing, and more writing… hopefully with a side of writing.
