An announcement about the next book

Legendary warlock Anna Atticus Stone walking up the stairs at the Academy of Arcane Arts

I have an announcement to make. After four months of work, I just finished the first draft of my tenth book.
And it’s about Anna Atticus Stone.

Can’t tell you how excited I am. She was an absolute joy to write. Very independent, much more so than Augum was. And she knows who she is and what she wants. I suspect you guys are going to love reading about her.

But Anna had a very tough childhood, and part of the book will deal with that. The rest showcases her first term attending the Academy of Arcane Arts. The book will also reveal what sort of person her vile sister was; Anna’s tumultuous relationship with her parents, who go through a divorce; and it will reveal her ambition, which will eventually result in her becoming the most brilliant warlock of all time.

The title shall be revealed in due course. Expected release date is December of this year.

And don’t worry, the trio shall return. I’ve just always wanted to write a piece of Anna’s story, a woman I’ve grown to know (and you’ve grown to love) as a hundred-year-old matriarch and legendary warlock.

This will tell how she began.

P.S. Some of you caught the hint I threw out on my last post, which showcased Anna’s Academy of Arts schedule. If you missed it, go back and have a peek.

The Arinthian Line series (complete): Arcane Riven Valor Clash Legend The Fury of a Rising Dragon series (complete): Burden's Edge Honor's Price Mercy's Trial Champion's Wrath I grew up on Dragonlance and probably spent way too much time playing role-playing games. Then came the video games. But then, Nintendo was life in Toronto of '86. As a matter of fact, much of my youth could be considered "wasted" exploring escapism of one form or another. Now I'm a full-time author living in British Columbia, Canada. I have a wife who taught me what it means to love someone unconditionally. Buddha, my grumpy but rumpled-with-love cat, likes to keep watch from a Lego castle near my desk. (Update: said Lego castle has long been dismantled. Now she basks under a sun lamp). I suppose my favorite sagas are Harry Potter, Ender's Game, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Game of Thrones. I also love true-life survival tales like Into Thin Air, Shadowdivers, and Perfect Storm. As for movies, I regularly re-watch Bladerunner, Star Wars, Highlander, Aliens, Limitless, Edge of Tomorrow, Interstellar, Lost in Translation, and Margin Call. But I've been most inspired by Harry Potter. Seriously, because if it hadn't been for HP, I'd never have dared. I simply stood on the shoulders of a giant. Thank you for writing that story, Joanne Rowling, it was extremely re-readable. I can only hope to capture my readers' imagination as you have captured mine. When I was a kid, I dreamed I could spread my arms as wings, jump off the ground, and fly. My head was in the clouds (and in many ways, still is). It would be fair to say that my love of fantasy began then, steadily refined by movies, video games, and cozy books. As for me, I enjoy talking to my readers, so if you read one of my books, you're welcome to shoot me an email at Throw me a question, comment, or just say hello. I blog at when the mood strikes me, and I'm on social media now and then. I don't publish too often, but you can subscribe to my newsletter to receive a notification when I do release new work (newsletter signup is at (I was also a musician at one time, having released three albums with my industrial-rock band Tribal Machine.) When all is said and done, I know how fortunate I am to be a full-time author. I think about it often--especially when I recall what it was like working the grind. Thus I humbly thank each and every reader for supporting my work.

      1. Will there possibly be a 10th book involving the heroic trio! Im salivating at the mere thought of getting to read about augum bridget and leera being 14th or 15th degree arcaners and all the new things they will have learned. Maybe by then theyve become official ambassadors for ley and hopefully even get to make regular trips to see mrs stone. Either way by far the best 2 series ive ever read i can NOT get enough and im beyond excited to hear about the great arcane artist in your newest book which i already have pre ordered. I just hope champions wrath wasnt the end of the line for the trio especially because they never even hit double digit degrees.

  1. becoming a atendant is easy:3 years of survitude.
    P.P.S. caps lock

    1. I’ve clarified the “attendant” rank situation at the top of the Discussion page. If anyone has ideas for ranks, please feel free to share them :)

  2. Ya,I can’t wait to read and delve into her life and story from her perspective and her journey as a warlock.

      1. Marek please look at the second to last post there you can learn how I became an Attendant but you have to remember Mr.Bronny can only give ranks not you or any one else.

      2. I clarified this at the top of the Discussion page. Hope that helps! More ranks coming in due course. If anyone has ideas on that front, please do share them!

  3. *Starts dancing like Leland and his ghoul* Yes yes yes! Yes!

    Seriously, I’m pumped beyond measure to read about Mrs. Stone’s youth! And she has the scion!

    1. But she also has to wait till her father passes and then also have to face her sister in a battle and we all know what happened there.

      1. Yeah, that’s true, but to me it sounds like it’ll be dealt with like Augum’s backstory. That is, a glimpse in the beginning and the rest revealed throughout. But that’s just my interpretation.

  4. Can’t wait to read her story! Did Steve ever get back to you about making movies out of the previous series? He hasn’t messaged me lately. Loved how you ended the previous series btw

    1. Hiyas Arthur! I am afraid he has not. He probably got quite busy, or perhaps the project may not be what he is looking for at this time. All good :)
