As you may know, an artist (Asbjørn G Andvig) and I have been working on a new cover for “The Autumn of the Whitewood” for some time because I didn’t feel like it was indicative of the genre. It is completed. What do you all think? Do you like it?
I thought I’d give a quick update as to where I’m at in “The Chronicles of the Starborn”. I am almost done with the first draft of book 8, working title “The Winds of Asgaloc”. It appears that what I wanted to happen at the end of book 7, “Birthright”, will be occurring at the end of this book instead. There will be at least 9 books. After I finish this book, I will be going back to book 3, “The Shadows of Winter”, and editing. I am also working on revamping the cover of “The Autumn of the Whitewood” to make it fit more in the genre (the picture above is part of it). I am also going to be taking the ebook versions out of Kindle Select so they will be available on more sites soon. In addition, I have some ideas for gifts for my Patreon sponsors. If you’d like to visit my Patreon page, click here.

The world is forever changed. Two dimensions are now one, and our heroine, Elaine Castle, a human, is navigating a world filled with dragons, orcs, and a mysterious enemy utilizing every power at its disposal to make sure that Elaine does not survive to unite the humans, Forest Elves, and Sky Elves. Our heroine is a wielder – a magic wielder, that is, and she definitely retains ancestral memory of being an elf, but is Elaine a helmannigr, a human born with an elven soul?
While she trains and her teacher tries to determine if she is, indeed, helmannigr, she fights with her blocks against two of the seven elements that all wielders have access to. These blocks are killing her, as magic kills the untrained. Is the answer in Connemaigh, the abandoned city of the Sky Elves that she arrived at in “The Autumn of the Whitewood”, or is it elsewhere in this new and dangerous world?
An epic fantasy with elements of romance, a hint of sci-fi, and a creative plot, “The Cliffs of Connemaigh” uses traditional fantasy tropes with new twists, and challenges the boundaries of the genre of fantasy. “The Cliffs of Connemaigh” is nominated for the Summer Indie Books Award hosted by Metamorph Publishing.
Last day! How goes it? Are you glad for NaNoWriMo to be almost over? My word count is now at 71,735. How’s yours?
So for the final day, I’ve chosen another picture that I took it at the North Carolina Botanical Garden. Check them out here if you’d like to donate or visit the gardens. Enjoy!
I received a new review and rating yesterday on “The Cliffs of Connemaigh”.
It’s from Ian Smith and here it is:
The plot thickens and it kept me hooked!
“This story isn’t one I would normally choose, but this is a twist on the usual fantasy. In this world, Elves are real characters, and magic takes time and effort to master.
It picks up from the first story, “The Autumn of the Whitewood”, and you really need to have read that to understand this world, who everyone is and what their relationships are. There’s a fairly large “cast” of characters, and several interwoven plot threads. I immediately found myself engaged and wanting to read on, as I didn’t guess all the twists and turns.
Be warned – this author is very good at winding up the story at the end of a book, and offering a tempting view of the story in the next! Please, please, please get a move on with the third one…
I bought this book from the Amazon UK site.”
Thank you, Ian!

Whew! Eight more days! How is everyone? Are you about done? Looking forward to December so you can take a break? 😀 I did go ahead and continue on yesterday. I’m now up to 54,407 words.
So for today’s inspirational pictures, I have chosen another taken on the Appalachian Trail. This is also taken near Roan Mountain, TN. Enjoy!
Another great question comes over Facebook from Ninett Aarmo. In this one she asks:
Do you think the series would be better suited as a TV-show, or a series of movies?
Given that this series is going to be at least 8 books, I think a TV show would probably be better. A TV show would also be able to go into greater depth but considering there is some sex and violence it would probably be better if the show was on a station like HBO, Cinemax, Epix, Showtime, etc. I could also see movies but that might take a lot of editing. Keep up the great questions!
A question came over Facebook from Ninett Aarmo.
“Would you consider writing any spin-offs, dealing with for example a central character’s life that doesn’t fit into the main plot?”
Yes, I would definitely consider writing some spin-offs. I have some ideas floating around in my head for several right now. I would also consider writing some that are prequels and even some that deal with the next generation.
Great question! Keep them coming!
