Thank you to everyone for your amazing support over the years. This is my eleventh(!) book, which boggles my mind. Yet my career as an author could not have been possible without you. So, yeah, thank you ;)

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.

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).

At long last, the epic fantasy audiobook LEGEND launches, concluding The Arinthian Line series

It feels strange to announce happy news right now, but perhaps it will bring a small bit of joy to those who have been waiting for this piece of news for many years now.

Thus, at long last, it gives me great honor to announce the audiobook release of LEGEND, the conclusion to the epic fantasy audiobook series The Arinthian Line.

https://www.amazon.com/Legend-Arinthian-Line-Book-5/dp/B081VRFDF5

It’s been an incredible journey for this saga. Audiobooks of this length are difficult to produce and distribute, that is why I would like to extend a very special thank you to Stefan Rudnicki, who believed in the project and pushed for it, as well as the rest of the team over at Skyboat Media and Blackstone distribution.

And I would like to thank you, the listener and reader, for believing in my work enough to finish this dream.

Happy listening,

—Sever
P.S. For those of you who will now be finishing the series up, please consider leaving honest reviews on audible for my work. Thank you :)

Arinthian Line news!

Hiyas!

How was your summer? Mine has been hectic, to say the least. But I’ll get to that in a moment. First off, I want to share some massive news that many of you have been hoping would happen for quite some time. At long last, the last two audiobooks in The Arinthian Line series are going to be published!

That’s right–Clash is launching on Christmas Eve, December 24th, and Legend is launching Mar 31st 2020! Which means you’ll finally be able to listen to the entire adventure straight through. In fact, you can pre-order the Clash audiobook now using this link.

I can’t thank you enough for your patience. Audiobooks are a massively labor-intensive and expensive process, so I am particularly grateful to Grammy winner Stefan Rudnicki for believing in the project and pushing to have it completed. Stefan has narrated some heavyweights, including Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:

“It’s been my honor and pleasure to voice Sever Bronny’s first three Arinthian Line novels, and I’m thrilled that I’ll now be getting back into that magical world for another 45 or so hours of high adventure storytelling. Over these years, Augum, Bridget, Leera, and of course Anna Atticus Stone, have become some of my very favorite characters. I think of them as friends, and the thought of hanging with them some more feels more like a vacation than work.”
—Stefan Rudnicki, September 2019

This announcement is quite timely, for I’m celebrating a personal milestone–on this day, four years ago, I quit my day job to be a full-time author. It’s hard to describe what that means to me in a notoriously fickle industry. And another anniversary is coming up too: the 5-year launch anniversary of Arcane. I’ll be throwing a contest to celebrate that moment (late November), which will have its own email.

Other news:

Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3) is on schedule for a December launch. Cover and blurb reveal coming soon. The book is massive–240,000 words–and is in the late editing stages. It was an incredibly complicated project that took a lot of energy to finish, but man was it rewarding (you guys are going to love where things have gone with the trio and their friends). But I’ll talk more about it in the coming reveal (wait till you see the cover!).

And thank you to everyone who voted for Arcane in the Epic Fantasy Fanatics contest! Arcane qualified for the next round thanks to your efforts. It’s now in the judging phase of the contest.

And yes, there will be a book 4 in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series.

All my best to you and those you love,

Sever

The Latest News

Let’s get to the big news first: the audiobook for Honor’s Price (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 2) just launched today!

It’s narrated by the accomplished Gary Furlong, from Ireland.

I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about when more audiobooks are going to come out, but unfortunately audiobooks take a long time to produce—especially for fantasy epics, which is the kind I write. The best thing you can do to help speed the process along is to get the distributors to take notice, which means leaving an honest review of any of my audiobooks on audible.

On to other matters.

I hope the wait for book 3 in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series is not too excruciating. I’ll be releasing the title of the work in the coming months. I’m also still on track for an early December launch, and am having a blast editing the book. It’s a big adventure with a lot of new character development and a whole new storyline that’s going to take things in an incredible direction. Augum’s main challenge in this work will be to control his temper while stepping into the shoes of a true leader. The girls too will have their own unique challenges.

I’m quite excited about where things are headed with this series, and have big plans for our intrepid trio—as well as a unique combination of spellcasting and story I simply cannot wait for you to experience.

There’s been a lot of mail in general from you happy folks (I post the “best-of” here on this site). You’ve been amazingly supportive and understanding of how long these stories take to crank out and get right. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every one of you :)

All my best to you and those you love, and happy listening to Honor’s Price!
Sever

P.S. I added a recent photo of me inducting Honor’s Price into the local downtown library here in Victoria, BC.

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?

First draft of Book 3 (Fury of a Rising Dragon series) nearing completion.

I just passed 200,000 words in book 3 to the Fury of a Rising Dragon series (title to be announced). The book is rapidly nearing its conclusion—and it’s one epic conclusion. But it’s only one battle in a war, which means, you guessed it:

Yes, there will be a book 4!

The expected release date of book 3 is December of this year (2019).

Thank you for your patience and your continued support. Your letters and comments inspire me to give it my all with my writing.

I love this job.

Honor’s Price (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 2) has launched!

Honors_Price_Launch_Photo_600x873

When a cunning enemy enslaves the kingdom, a famed warlock-knight must survive a gauntlet of perils to save his people.

Augum Stone is only sixteen and already a legend. He heard his name chanted in the arena by tens of thousands. He vanquished a notorious tyrant and ended a war. And he revived a warlock-knight order that lay dormant for generations.

But these feats came with a price—he needs combat to feel alive, to test his limits.

As Augum struggles with restraint, a callous enemy kingdom enslaves his people. And that enemy wants more than mere control—they’re searching for an ancient weapon with which to conquer Sithesia.

Now, with the future of all the kingdoms at stake, Augum and his friends must cobble together lost historical clues to find the weapon before the enemy does. Standing in the way is a manipulative prince, a traitorous nobility, a vengeful

rival . . . and Augum’s own reckless nature.
* * *
This launch marks three years of full-time writing. Three years. In total, I published seven books, stacking up to 1.24 millions words. I am grateful to you, dear reader. And I am grateful to my amazing wife, who believed in my writing when she could have easily told me, after I had already failed in making a living in my music career, that I should be more practical. Yet she pushed me to see where it goes, knowing I was having a blast writing.

And I’m still having a blast writing (thank you, my love!).

Many of you have written me wonderful heartfelt letters expressing your love for the trio’s journey. You have motivated me to give it my all with this work, which has been a year in the making. It’s a big book—230,000 words / 634 paperback pages, almost as long as Legend. In this new chapter in their lives, our illustrious trio find themselves embroiled in a new adventure—one of courage, determination, and especially, growth.

Thank you for supporting my work—it means more than you know :)

Now on the book. The kindle version can be purchased from Amazon HERE. The paperback version can be found HERE.

Enjoy the adventure, and I’d love to hear your thoughts when you’re done reading.

All my best to you and those you love,

—Sever

P.S. I just sent out an email to all my subscribers which includes the first chapter (those of you with Gmail accounts may want to check your “Promotions” tab–and drag and drop them into your regular email tab, as sometimes emails get lost in the shuffle like that).
