WARDRAKE update

I just finished making the Kindle version of the ebook for Wardrake . The Smashwords ebook is coming along nicely as well. That one is a little more time consuming because of their formatting restrictions, but it's getting there. I am so happy with how this book is turning out! Seeing this story in print at last is a little surreal. I'm really super proud of it.

I should have a preorder Read more of this blog post »

"What a fun story. It had loads of detail and reminded me a bit of "The Last Samurai" meets "The Lord of the Rings".

It had a very huge Japanese undercurrent, which the author talks about at the end of the book, but in an otherworldly atmosphere.
