After close to two years of writing, I have finally finished my first full length fantasy novel. The Forging: Book One of the Four Companions Series is an exciting adventure that can best be described as "old school" fantasy.

Once you start to read The Forging, you will be pulled along as a band of four unlikely heros, a dwarf, a half-orc, a thief and a magic-user, use their wits, their cunning and their strength to discover the secrets of an ancient map.

If you like role playing games and enjoy reading authors such as Tolkien, Salvatore, Anthony and Brooks than I am sure you will love my book.

Over these last months, I have finsihed writing The Forging and it has undergone several editing processes. I now feel that it is ready to print.

Below, you will find a link to the prologue of The Forging. I invite you to take the time to read it and get to meet the story's principal characters.

If it grabs your attention, and you would like to read more, your contribution will not only let you read the entire book, it will help pay for its layout, cover design and printing costs.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration...and yes, I have already started working on the sequal!

Risks and challenges

The story has been written and edited. After contacting several self-publishing houses, I have chosen one that fits both my needs and a realistic budget. If my Kickstarter Campaign is successful, I am confident that The Forging can be printed and mailed off within two to three months.
