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!

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

Legend (The Arinthian Line, book 5)

Are you ready for Augum, Bridget and Leera’s grand finale? I hope so, because Legend (The Arinthian Line, book 5) has officially released! Wow, I simply cannot believe I finally get to say that. I’ve been positively giddy with excitement in anticipation of this day.

The Arinthian Line spans almost a million words, has been years in the making, became an Amazon bestseller, and was the most challenging and rewarding undertaking of my life.

But this victory is not just mine—it is yours as well. You supported and encouraged me, and it meant a lot, more than you know.

“So where is it already?” I hear you asking. Legend can be found HERE on Amazon.

ADDITIONAL NEWS: Arcane (The Arinthian Line, book 1) will be on sale for only 99 cents until January 20th, so if you know anyone you think would enjoy the series, give them a heads up. :)

As to the paperback for Legend

…it should be up any time now on Amazon (if it’s not, you can order the paperback direct from the printer HERE). Sometimes it takes a few days for it to show up on on Amazon, so hang in there. :)

The book is so big (it’s 243,000 words, 20% longer than Clash) that it barely squeaked by the max of 740 paperback pages in length!

I cannot thank you enough for joining me on this epic journey. I’ll get to work on a new series as soon as possible (hints on that can be found in Legend). In the meantime, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and enjoy the book!

News about book 5

I’m super excited to report that the first draft of LEGEND (The Arinthian Line, book 5) has been completed this morning. It clocks in around 234,000 words (about 15% longer than CLASH).

The next stage is editing, followed by prep and launch. If all goes well, you should have the final installment in The Arinthian Line by Christmas.

It’s been an emotional ride with this book. Years of work came to a head, and somehow, it all resolved in a way that made me feel personally content as someone living in that world five days a week (could you imagine?). Yet in many ways I feel like one of the luckiest people alive; I get to adventure alongside Augum, Bridget and Leera for a living.

Email / msg me anytime, I love hearing from readers. All my best,

Sever

CLASH-globe-only

CLASH (The Arinthian Line, Book 4)

Warlocks Augum, Bridget and Leera are finally able to relax after a grueling ordeal in Bahbell. Their substitute mentor Leopold Harvus, however, isn’t at all like the legendary Anna Atticus Stone. He’s manipulative and petty with a distaste for anything
untoward—particularly Augum and Leera’s affections for each other.

As their studies suffer from his oppressive meddling, Anna Stone—on the run
from the Legion—tasks the trio with a dangerous new quest that could turn the
tide in the war. But when Harvus pushes Augum too far, a brazen act of
rebellion plunges everyone into mortal peril…

Apprentice warlocks Augum, Bridget and Leera have reunited with their legendary mentor, Anna Atticus Stone. But her epic battle with the diabolical Lord of the Legion has taken a toll, and now she suffers from a deadly arcane fever. To revive her, Augum will have to earn the respect of a warrior people … by facing his childhood tormentors.

Meanwhile, Augum and Leera’s feelings for each other are complicated by the upcoming Star Feast, a magical midnight dance to mark Endyear. Their revelry will have to be short-lived, however, for a perilous quest beckons—the trio must infiltrate an ancient castle that will pit them against enemies old and new, while testing every ounce of their skill and courage
