Early 2020 if I hurry. I hope to have it to my editor by October or November for a release next spring.

Book III will wrap up this series and kick off another one, same world, different characters.

I have plans for standalone novels focusing on Daorah, Aever, and eventually Gale at some point in the next few years, as well as an Outworlders prequel that will be Ulo's origin story.

And thanks! Glad you're enjoying it. Cheers.(less)

"This is the most confident book I've ever read.

"Wow. Borrowed it from the library and read it twice. And still had to buy it for my own collection."
Dragon's Trail by Joseph  Malik

Dragon's Trail by Joseph  Malik
"An interesting merge of the current world to a medieval world via a magician created portal. It is fast paced page turner that I wanted to keep reading. A bit of a military techno thriller meets sword and sorcery (well more sword than sorcery). A lit" Read more of this review »
