Hi all,

I've been away from dA for nearly a year now, due to numerous things in my life-- two hospitalizations, buying a house/moving, my wife had surgery, etc. etc. I won't bore you with all the details, but suffice to say, 2016 has been a real adventure! I'm working on getting back into dA, so I'll be answering comments/notes finally, and I'll be uploading some new things in the coming weeks. :)

As of this morning, book three of The Seven Wars is now available in trade paperback and Kindle edition! I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I do. It's rather a turning point in The SomadÓrsath work, as it is the story that changes Etheria and our dear characters forever. In doing so, it sets the stage for the epic stories yet to come and lays the foundation for just about every major event in The Seven Wars that is yet to follow. Don't miss out!

Livestream [Off]

[Done now. Thanks to those of you who joined me!]

I've never done a livestream before, so bear with me if I seem n00bish. D:

Come watch me work on the (potential) cover for my second book Bound by Blood. I think I've done most of the boring stuff already-- sketching and base coloring-- so you can come watch me shade and do the fun parts. I probably work really slow though, so I'm sorry in advance...

Big News

Journal Entry: Sun May 27, 2012, 1:53 PM
So you know those novels I've been working on for... well, ever?

I've decided to self publish them. I thought about going the traditional route and querying agents, searching for editors, etc. but I just felt like that wasn't for me. I'm a bit of a control freak and I think publishing and promoting the books myself sounds like a lot more fun. It has it's disadvantages, but so does traditional publishing.

I made the decision to self-publish with Amazon.com about two weeks ago. Since then, I've typeset the manuscript for the first book of the series, The Immortal, and this afternoon, I sent off the book files to Amazon for approval. Fingers crossed that I met all their formatting requirements!

Once I hear back from them, I'll get a copy to proof and then hopefully within a month or so, the book will go live for sale on Amazon. You'll be able to order either a trade paperback or a Kindle edition.

You're probably wondering what this has to do with me here on DeviantArt. In addition to uploading illustrations to my personal website, I am going to begin uploading my art to dA! Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I used to do this, but stopped out of fear of art and character theft. Now that my work is going to be officially copyrighted, that's not as big a concern to me anymore. Besides, since I'm self publishing, I'll take whatever exposure for my work I can find!

So, over the next few weeks, you can expect to see full pieces of art from me uploaded here!
