Fall of Percepliquis 

Status: Gathering feedback from readers who would like to read this.

In The Riyria Revelations, references are made to the fall of the original Empire when Percepliquis was destroyed and the Heir of Novron went into hiding. This book would take place 1,000 years prior to the incidents of The Riyria Revelations and would feature the Wizard Esrahaddon and Jerish, the first Guardian of the Heir.

A Burden to the Earth

Status: 100% Written; Currently on hold until other projects under development are completed.
He learned values from Gunsmoke, ethics from Father Knows Best, and his
place in the world from Ozzie & Harriet, but his life turned out much different.
A child of the fifties, Elliot Myers believed his parents, his teachers, his priest, and television when they promised him the American dream. Now at forty, and still living in his mother’s tiny condominium, he knows they all lied. Embittered by a world that moved ahead and left him behind, Elliot finds one last chance to free himself of forty years of waiting and makes his first, and final, grasp at life. Set in the early 1990’s A Burden to the Earth explores regret over lost innocence, nostalgia for the past, and the costs of dwelling on both.




Antithesis

Status: 100% Written. Major re-write needed.

This is a book from my past (I wrote 13 novels before starting The Riyria Revelations), which has been stripped down to its foundation and rebuilt. Early feedback indicated this book needed substantially more work,  than I'm willing to do right now, so it is on hold. The thirty word description of the book goes like this:
Two opposing individuals possess limitless magic, providing the universe balance. An unexpected death transfers this power to an unsuspecting bystander who is clueless of the consequences of his newfound abilities.
As many people judge a book by the marketing copy on the back, I'm providing this below. If the book sounds interesting to you, please use the button to be notified when it is available.
Have you ever wondered how the world will end?

No? Well don’t sweat it. Most people don’t, and the few that do expect the cause will be a dramatic change in climate, a pandemic, or mostly likely war. That’s what we’ve all been taught to believe, and we’re comfortable with rational explanations. But people weren’t always so quick to accept the facts provided by the so-called experts. There used to be a time when we believed in myth and magic. Our minds were open to the idea of believing in what can’t be seen…the fantastical.

I had been like you until I met Winston Stewart; the day I learned to believe that there are other forces at work—not the least of which is fate. Fate is an amazing thing. It put Gandhi in South Africa, Nelson at Gibraltar, and Winston Stewart on that train in Alexandria Virginia.

You say you don’t know who Winston Stewart is? Don't worry...You will.
