First draft of “The Arcane Artist” complete

Here’s what a stack of used plot cards looks like after finishing writing the first draft of “The Arcane Artist (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 2)”. Book clocked in at 235,000 words prior to the start of editing.

The book is split between a 19-year-old Anna attending her last year at the academy, and the grand adventure she goes on after graduating, following in the footsteps of her ancestor, Atrius Arinthian . . .

The book is on schedule to launch in December, and will be my eleventh published book. For now, the book enters the editing stage.

Audiobook of “Prodigy of Thunder” Launches Today!

I’m excited to announce the audiobook launch of Prodigy of Thunder (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 1)! It is incredibly well narrated by the accomplished Moira Quirk, who brought my work to life. I am very proud of how this turned out, and I think you guys are going to love it.

You can snag it exclusively from Audible here (it will launch wide on the other platforms in three months).

Prodigy of Thunder (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 1) released!

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09MY84S3W

A family of warlocks . . . torn by an ancient secret.

Fourteen-year-old Anna Atticus Stone is a prodigy.
A warlock prodigy.

The youngest to ever wield lightning, Anna burns with ambition, dreaming of attending the prestigious Academy of Arcane Arts.

But her life’s a mess.

She’s friendless, her father barely lets her out of the house, and her older sister keeps knocking her teeth out.

And her parents fight. Constantly. Mostly over her father illegally training the sisters in the old way, as it’s forbidden to learn so far ahead.

Now Anna readies to take the academy entrance trials. A pass will mean friends, warlock tournaments, and exploring a thousand-year-old academy. Typical teenage warlock stuff.

Except her sister is bent on sabotaging her. And there’s a reason for that sabotage—and for the illegal training . . . their father carries a dangerous secret.

A secret for only one daughter.

And Anna is about to find out what her sister is willing to do to claim it.


Personal thoughts from the author:

The day has finally come! After a long year of writing and editing Anna’s story, Prodigy of Thunder has launched. I cannot wait for you to experience the beginning of her journey. You have been requesting her story ever since reading about her in Arcane (The Arinthian Line, book 1). It gives me great honor to deliver on that request.

It was a tricky endeavor for me to write a book about an already established character. For that challenge, I searched deep into who Anna was whilst asking myself what sorts of things would she have gone through as a child and as a teenager. Writing the answers into the book was immensely enjoyable for me, even though Anna went through serious trials.

Anna’s strengths come from her independence, her compassion, and her ambition. But she has always suffered from loneliness too. This story partly aims to explain why and how that loneliness took root. I find her to be a complicated soul with an epic story, one I look forward to fleshing out in subsequent books.

Note that both the paperback and ebook versions have a map and Anna’s full academy class schedule. Also, I hope you’ll consider sharing the launch on social media (or even sharing my Facebook post about it).

Thank you all for your amazing support over the years, and feel free to email me your thoughts when you’re done reading.

Enjoy the book!

All my best to you and those you love,

-Sever
P.S. Extra special thanks to the ART team, as well as the wonderful souls who participate on this website. You know who you are :)

You know her name . . .

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally reveal the name of the book about Anna Atticus Stone’s origin story. In Prodigy of Thunder (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 1), I explore Anna’s tumultuous relationship with her family, a family slowly destroyed by an ancient secret. There will be adventure, exploration of the Academy of Arcane Arts’s Shoptown, and plenty of arcanery. Above all, you will get to know Anna.

And she is ambitious and brave and reckless and kind and empathic and brilliant.

I’m on schedule to launch early December. Further, I’d like to proudly announce I signed a three-book audiobook deal with Podium. The book is currently in the casting phase, and you will not have to wait long for it to launch (three months or so?).

Hope you’ve been well,

Sever
P.S. Anyone will be able to read this saga, even if they have not read The Arinthian Line or Fury of a Rising Dragon, making it safe to give as a holiday gift.

In other news, the book on Anna Atticus Stone is in the final stages of editing and on schedule for an early December launch. I will announce the name of the book, the series, and reveal the cover and blurb in due course.

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.

Six years of publishing, two complete series’ spanning nine books, 1.73 million words, and one grand adventure.

Depicted is The Arinthian Line series and the Fury of a Rising Dragon series in paperback format. Both series’ are complete.
Top book a stand-in as I wait for paperback version to arrive).

Thank you to all my friends and readers for the amazing support over the years, as well as all the emails and messages. I’m a bit behind in answering but I’ll get there.

Hope you’ve been enjoying Champion’s Wrath :)

I will of course be starting a new book in January, but will not reveal its subject matter until later this year.

Happy holidays :)

🎇Champion’s Wrath is now LIVE ON KINDLE!🎇

Your wait is over! The grand finale to the Fury of a Rising Dragon series, Champion’s Wrath, has finally launched on Kindle.

This book was a huge undertaking and an emotional journey for me, but I am mighty proud of the work—and the entire Fury of a Rising Dragon series as a whole. Loads of surprises coming your way.

Champion’s Wrath is a true epic, clocking in at a whopping 275,000 words—736 paperback pages, maxing out the printer (and my nerves). I gave it my very all every step of the way.

I cannot thank you enough for your amazing support over the years. You have sent me emails by the thousands from all corners of the world, throwing nothing but kindness my way, encouraging this endeavor. Because of you, I have been able to be a full-time author now for over five years (and I’ve spent nine years writing the trio in total—thus far).

And special thanks to the ART. You know who you are, and you are very much appreciated 🙂

This has been a difficult year in particular for everyone, and hopefully Augum, Bridget and Leera can give you a little pick-me-up for the holidays. So grab a blanket and get cozy, because the last adventure in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series is about to begin. I proudly reveal Champion’s Wrath, available from Amazon in the following countries:

All my best to you and those you love,

—Sever
P.S. Additionally, I put the Kindle version of Arcane and Burden’s Edge on sale for only 99 cents (sale ends Dec 8th). Please share if you have people in your circle who you think might enjoy the saga.

P.P.S. I hope you will consider leaving an honest review of Champion’s Wrath on Amazon when you’re done, as every review helps Augum, Bridget and Leera reach new readers. Thank you so much.

P.P.P.S. Bonus photos of Buddha. She pretends like she wants to be part of the fun, but what she really wants are the cookies:

 

Paperback launch notice: Champion’s Wrath (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4)

Heyas :)

Shipping is a touch slower these days so I thought I’d launch the paperback as soon as it was ready. This way those who are gifting it to others (or themselves ;) will hopefully receive it in time for the holiday season. At 275,000 words, it’s an epic book (and it just managed to squeeze in under the max page count with the printer). Can’t tell you how much fun I had writing it and how excited I am for you to read it!

The Kindle ebook is launching this Friday/Saturday, depending on how long Amazon’s approval process takes. But you’ll get an email from me as soon as it’s live.

You can snag the paperback copy of Champion’s Wrath (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4) from your country as follows:

USA

Canada

UK

Japan

Italy

Spain

France

Germany

Please note some countries may not be able to order the paperback yet due to Covid restrictions, which are beyond my control as they are set by Amazon.

All my best to you and those you love,
