Update on “The Chronicles of the Starborn”

16196382_10154915743214197_725916059_o-1

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.

Signed copies of “The Cliffs of Connemaigh” available for purchase!

Yes, you read that correctly. Would you like a signed copy of “The Cliffs of Connemaigh” for yourself or as a gift? If you do, you can purchase a copy or copies directly through me! Contact me through Facebook or Twitter and we can do this. The price is $14.99 plus shipping.

You can also purchase the unsigned copy at Amazon.

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.

“The Chronicles of the Starborn” as a video game?

So another great question (this one’s a two part one) has come over Facebook from Ninett Aarmo. She asks:

Do you feel the series would make for a good video game adaption?

If so, what genre do you see best suited? Telltale Games style? RPG? MMORPG..etc..

Ooo, yes, I do actually. I could see the series translated rather well as a video game. There’s numerous routes that I could take as well, whether you’d play one of the main characters or a brand new character navigating the world. I think that would translate better. The main characters in the novel could be NPCs in it.

Oh boy. I could see any of those working. I will admit, though, I am a sucker for “The Elder Scrolls” games. I can definitely see something being done with Bethesda and a dozen others.

A TV show or movies?

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!
