Legacy is a rollicking adventure that takes place in Victorian England during the rise of the Industrial Revolution. It's a mesh of both Steampunk and fantasy, set within a fast-paced and original plot.
A thief, a lover, and a toymaker; drawn together by fate, unlikely champions against a powerful and remorseless enemy. When not fighting each other, they must defeat the powerful Lord Norwich, and end his plan to unleash global violence and crown himself emperor of the world.
But behind the scenes, the Trickster god is manipulating men like puppets, changing history to his own ends and for his own amusement. As an ancient plan is set into motion, the trio are faced with events they do not understand and may not survive.
I began writing Legacy a few of years ago with the idea that it was only going to be a three book series. Yet, as I wrote, the stories took on a life of their own, expanding into six books! Now I’m working on a standalone novel for Legacy, titled Boom Time. It has taken a lot to bring Legacy where it is today. It has gone through two publishing houses, one in which went under. Soon after, though, Legacy was picked up again by an up-and-coming publishing house, Nordland Publishing. The book has gone through rigorous editing and has even gotten a lovely new cover.
Before Legacy was even first published, I had spent an entire year and half writing nonstop on the rest of the series in order to have all books written and ready for editing as soon as possible. The whole Legacy series is a fast-paced adventure with characters that grow and develop as each story progresses. The plotlines intertwine with one another and yet are different, giving readers a new experience in every book. And it all begins with this first novel!
The next stage for Legacy is to bring it to life through actual recorded words, and with a little help, that next stage can come true!

Risks and challenges
All paperbacks can be easily ordered through Createspace, so there is no problem there. Considering the quantity of orders for the pens, journals, playing cards, bookmarks and posters, there may be a slim change of delay in sorting the orders out and shipping them to backers. I promise, though, to get all that done as quickly as possible. My initial choice for a voice actor may fall through, forcing me to interview another, but that too is a slim possibility. The audiobook will take some time to complete, so it will not be delivered right away. However, I intend to keep backers informed on its progress.
Than you, everyone!
