The Dragon's Storm Trilogy 

Bound By Pride

 War looms. The blast of the horns ring out across the Empire as armies gather and loyalties are called into question. Sithen is left to call upon aid when the army he has to come to face draws upon magical resources to combat himself and his human army. It has been centuries since men and dragons have warred, but that has not made the humans less dangerous, but their magic more unpredictable than ever. As they close upon the capital city, their only chance is an alliance with one of the few nonhuman races left in the world, and the hope that they will answer his need. All of this to see if he can stand in the face of man's magic and spears to take back who he loves.

 Lashane stands against the beat of her memories, her fractured mind patch worked and held together with an ever churning mix of human and dragon. In her attempt to isolate the memories of her time as a human, she finds that 'Duskwing' is not so easily dominated. She is forced to face off with men boasting a lifetime of breaking animals, each one attempting to win the gold and glory of breaking her down to something less than human. It's a trial by fire and one that she fears she will not come out of with her mind intact. But will it be the mind that Sithen has come to rescue or the human ensnared in the body of a dragon? 

 The second in the Dragon’s Storm Trilogy is going to be released in October. Right now I’m going to be taking preorders, these will be sent out BEFORE it’s released on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. Benefits of preordering include being able to get a hard back book, I only order ONE shipment of these so only preorders have a chance to get them. Otherwise, they are all soft copies. With a preorder you get: 

 -Early Release 

-Glossy high quality copy of the cover

PLEASE!  If you got a spot for a character in the last book you MUST submit your ideas by no later than 6/21.  I have been trying to get them together, but at this point I can't wait any longer.  Please understand that if you submit one on the due date and not before you will not have a chance for a resubmission if the idea is unusable (Nonhuman character, time traveler, dimension hopper, anime style character, other character that doesn't fit in the world).  I can't wait any longer to get the book together.

Thank you!

Hey Everyone,

Sorry that I've been a bit quiet, Kickstarter and I had a few issues and then life got rather busy all of a sudden.  Right now I am working on a due date for the third book, to the massive amount of rewrites that I'm going through and tracking down people who got the reward for a spot in the book it's been slow going and estimating when it will be done is proving difficult, but I'm hoping the due date will be at the end of this year if all goes according to plan!

In other news, the website is down.  I'm working to find a web design company to help me take things from scratch and reworking it all.  Hopefully this didn't cause too many concerns!  Thank you all for your patience, and hopefully the final book will be well worth the wait!

Gone Live/All Books Out

All books have been sent out and are on their way, internationals may take longer so please be patient.  I had far more preorders than the original release of the first book so it took a bit longer to get everything out.  As a note, I will NOT be doing international orders for the third book except for those who had high enough levels as backers.  It was far more of a hassle getting everything out than I had anticipated and the shipping costs going up are severely prohibitive.

In other news, we are now live and on amazon!  Barnes and Noble and I are still having a disagreement, but anticipate that it will go live this weekend.
