Big Passion of the Dragon Saga Updates and Other News!

releaseannouncementRayna and I just announced over the weekend the title for the third volume in The Passion of the Dragon  Saga and I am very excited to share it here as well! We have titled it Souls Ignited: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved and it will release in Paperback and for Kindle on December 12, 2016! The process of writing this series has been an emotional journey full of adventures across the world and learning some new things about history. I’ve always been passionate about history so this just allows me to dig my claws deeper in. Telling the story of Erzsébet with Rayna’s story of Erdenia is something that I am beyond happy to be a part of. Hisboxset1&2tory excites me almost as much as my work on this series does. Rayna and I are building an incredible story here that I love to unfold with her, puzzle piece by puzzle piece. To celebrate this we will also be releasing a special digital boxed set of Hearts on Fire and Love in Flames on August 24, 2016! The boxed set is now available for pre-order on Amazon for you Kindle readers. You can also read the first two books on Kindle Unlimited or catch them on their upcoming Kindle deals! There is a full update, including those details and more from Rayna and myself in our latest series blog post.

I am still working on other projects. The fantasy series is coming along rather nicely, actually. I plan to share a piece of the writing with the world later on this week. It’s just a simple, short paragraph but it will give you some kind of premise for this story that’s been cooking up in my head for more than a decade. Stay tuned for that to come this week!

phoenixfromtheashesfrontcoverfinalresizeAs for my poetry, you can read both Behind the Mask and Phoenix from the Ashes for free on Kindle Unlimited or you can get a free copy of them when they go free on Kindle coming up very soon! Phoenix from the Ashes will be free on August 3 – 7, 2016 and Behind the Mask will be free August 25-29, 2016 in exclusive Amazon Kindle deals!

Life has been insane for me lately but I have some upcoming plans for my blog besides just the sneak peak (and other looks) at my in development fantasy series. Keep an eye out for:

  • A blog (or several) about Game of Thrones because let’s face it I am as addicted to it as the rest of the world.
  • A blog about my latest adventure in reading Philippa Gregory’s Cousins War series. I just finished reading The White Queen and have begun to read The Red Queen.
  • A blog about Kim Harrison’s Hollows Series, which I finished reading earlieHouse_Targaryen_Sigilr this year. A fantastic read for anyone who loves a good fantasy series about witches and other supernatural things.
  • Some more bits and pieces of my poetry.
  • Some personal insight into The Passion of the Dragon Saga, working with Rayna, Vlad’s story, visiting Romania, and much more.
  • A blog (or several) about the music that inspires me most and I can’t function without.
  • A blog (or several) about my historical obsessions like The Tudors and The Borgias, along with the tv shows that stemmed from their legacies.

My hope is to be blogging more often so there is what to expect! Keep up for more news on The Passion of the Dragon Saga and much more! I’ll be blogging at least once more this week on my in development fantasy series.

Welcome to my new blog!

After a lot of thinking, I have decided to move my blog from tumblr to wordpress. I will be moving all of my main posts from tumblr to here very soon! I’ll also be completing my posting of the poems I wrote for NaPoWriMo. I enjoyed challenging myself to write with every single prompt that was given this year and completing them. I’m going to continue to challenge myself to do more things like this in the future as it benefits my writing and creative thoughts in so many ways.

Rayna Kingston and I launched a website for the book series we are writing together known as The Passion of the Dragon Saga today! Check it out! I’m currently writing on the third chapter of the second volume of the series to be titled Love in Flames: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved. We have both enjoyed sharing Hearts on Fire: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved with the world as the first volume of the series. The wonderful feedback and reviews we have received have made us absolutely giddy!  This has been an incredible journey that we are just really getting started with. Hearts on Fire has been out for a little over two months now and we expect Love in Flames to release in early 2016. I’m very proud to say that I chased my dreams and do not regret for one second convincing my best friend to write this story. It is just too good to not share with the world. I know that we both cannot wait to see where else this takes us! If you happen to check out the website, you will for the first time see actual biographies for the three lead characters of Vlad, Erdenia, and Erzsébet.

Now for me it’s back to some music, which today is a Nightwish and Delain playlist in preparation for the concert on Wednesday that Rayna and I will be both be attending, and to write more on Love in Flames!
