new release

I am pleased to announce that The Making of a Mage has now been released and can be bought from Amazon as an ebook and paperback. It is also available in some bookstores.

It is the second prequel to The Wolves of Vimar and tells the story of the early life of Carthinal, the main character in the Wolves books.

Here is the blurb:

Carthinal is alone in the world. His parents and grandparents have died. Without money and a place to live, he faces an uncertain future.

After joining a street gang, Carthinal begins a life of crime. Soon after, he sees a performing magician, and decides he wants to learn the art of magic.

But can he break away from his past and find the path to his true destiny?

I am currently working on the third prequel, which tells of Asphodel and how she came to become a priest of Sylissa, Goddess of Life and Healing. I’ve finished the first draft, and had it critiqued, but it still needs work. I’ll keep you up to date with how that’s going.

I’m also almost ready to send the second book in my historical novel series, A Family Through the Ages, to the publisher. It follows a descendant of Adelbehrt from Vengeance of a Slave.

Helgha is a young girl living in the Danelaw, a part of Britain ruled by the Vikings. The book is titled Jealously of a Viking.

All my books can be bought from Amazon by a simple click on the cover.

Cover preview

They say that you wait ages for a bus, then 2 come at once. Well. I’m not talking buses here, but news of my books.

A few days ago I told you of the release of my new audiobook, Vengeance of a Slave. Yesterday I got the suggested cover for my latest book.

Its a novella, a prequel to my Wolves of Vimar series, and tells about the parents of Carthinal and how they met and fell in love.

Of course, things aren’t as straightforward as that. He’s and elf and she’s a human, so there are family problems. How do they overcome them, and do they live happily ever after with their little son, Carthinal? You need to wait until it’s out to find out!

Anyway, here’s the cover. I like it and have emailed my publisher to say so. What do you think? Would you pick it up if you saw that cover? Let me know in the comments box.

Here it is.
