Anna book 2: Cover and blurb reveal + preorder

The Arcane Artist (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 2) epic fantasy series ya fantasy young adult coming of age magic female protagonist girl hero warlock witch wizard adventure fun like

Warlock Anna Atticus Stone is on her final year at the academy. As head of student council, academic prodigy, and champion arena dueler, she seems the perfect pupil.

In reality, Anna is grieving, overwhelmed, and so lonely she talks to herself. Above all, she fears assassination if people find out her father’s dying gift to her was a scion. Only seven of these powerful artifacts exist, one in each kingdom—a precarious balance that maintains peace.

That peace shatters when a kingdom steals a second scion and invades its weaker neighbor. Anna feels compelled to act, but that would mean facing her crippling fears, a quest into the unforgiving wilds, and risking her kingdom becoming a target of war.

Driven by the memory of her father, she must find the one thing eluding her thus far . . . courage.

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

🎇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,

✨Champion’s Wrath Cover + Blurb Reveal✨

Summoning dragons exacts a price. Can they afford to pay it?

Augum, Bridget and Leera are the first to summon dragons in thousands of years. But the ancient spell inflicts an unforeseen side effect—after every casting, it turns them against each other.

As the Canterran army plunders their kingdom, Katrina Von Edgeworth uses her siege engine dragon to crush all resistance. The trio, fledglings at fighting in the air, soon find themselves outmatched.

Now everything hangs by a thread and Augum, Bridget and Leera must somehow carve a path to victory—without gouging each other’s eyes out.

Little do they know the enemy is readying a deadly surprise.

* * *

Champion’s Wrath is the grand finale to the Fury of a Rising Dragon series. Also by Sever Bronny: The Arinthian Line series, the epic coming of age adventure that began it all.

* * *

I’m so excited to at last be able to share the cover and blurb with you guys. It’s been a long and emotional journey to get to this point, but we’re finally in the home stretch. So get ready to embark on another wondrous adventure with the trio, because it’s just around the corner!

All my best to you and those you love,

—Sever
P.S. ART: watch out for the email, it’s coming soon ;)

Announcing the name of the book that will conclude the epic fantasy “Fury of a Rising Dragon” series

Heyas! How’s everyone doing? I’m going to announce the name of the next book. But before I do, I just wanted to note that I haven’t posted lately because I’ve been taking a break from social media to focus on finishing a major editing round, which was incredibly complex due to the sheer scale of the book.

And the book is epic, and I mean EPIC. I have a feeling you guys will be quite satisfied with how this particular series ends.

Now on to the crux of the post . . .

The name of the last book of the Fury of a Rising Dragon series will be Champion’s Wrath. It is currently on schedule for a December launch. (The image I uploaded is a stock image to whet your appetites.)

I’m also trying to decide on which series to write next: a story of the trio as adults, or a story about Mrs. Stone’s tempestuous youth. What are your thoughts?

Mercy’s Trial has launched!

Grasping at a sliver of hope, a group of friends undertake a perilous quest last attempted thousands of years ago . . . a quest to summon dragons.

* * *


I am thrilled to announce that Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3) has finally launched!

Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3) cover and blurb reveal

Grasping at a sliver of hope, a group of friends undertake a perilous quest last attempted thousands of years ago . . . a quest to summon dragons.

A ruthless enemy has conquered Augum’s kingdom. Sheltered beneath a protective dome, the Academy of Arcane Arts stands as the sole remaining stronghold.

And Augum and his friends are about to abandon it.

Little does he know escaping will be the easy part, for a harrowing adventure awaits. Along the way, he’ll have to evade an enemy that always seems one step ahead—while dealing with an ally questioning his leadership.

But his greatest challenge?

Learning when to show mercy . . . and when to drive in the sword.

COMING THIS DECEMBER

* * *

Two pieces of news this time around:

– Announcing the name of book 3
– I need your help nominating Arcane for its first-ever book contest

Firstly, I’m excited to announce that the name of the next book, coming out in December, will be Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3). It’s an epic work (a book as long as Legend!). It’s currently with my wife, who is doing the developmental editing. When that gets done, it’s going to go through another couple of edit rounds before a line editor takes over. The cover reveal will come in the next few months. In the meantime, I’ll get to start writing book 4! Needless to say, I’m ultra excited.

Secondly, I’d like to ask your help with something I’ve never tried before–a book contest! Epic Fantasy Fanatics is running a massive contest on Facebook, and I’ve submitted Arcane for contention. The tricky part is that Arcane will require 100 nominations to enter the main contention round, and I’ve only got a handful so far because I haven’t publicized that I’ve entered the contest. Nominating the book is super quick and easy:†††

Simply go to Arcane’s nomination page (link below), scroll down, and click on “nominate”. Doing so will prompt an automatic Facebook dialogue asking you if you wish to nominate Arcane. Click on “Yes.” †

Link to Arcane’s nomination page

The nomination round ends in four days (July 14th), so your help in getting us to 100 is crucial. Thank you so much for your amazing support :)

So what do you think of the name Mercy’s Trial? Are you as excited as I am?

All the best,

Sever

A peek behind the curtain

Finished writing book 3 recently, and now I’m rereading the first two books of the Fury of a Rising Dragon series in preparation for the first round of editing. It will go through numerous rounds of edits before release later this year

Reading my own books might seem strange but I find it to be an important part of the process. And yes I do laugh at my own jokes 😂 Currently at the scene where the trio and friends visit Olaf for the first time in “Castle Squalor”—Olaf’s house. It’s one of my favorites in Honor’s Price. Do you have a favorite scene in the book?
