Hello, everyone!

Updated: 03/03/2017

This site is a collection of all fictional works that I will be finishing up. For more information please use the navigation menus above to get around. Links to the finalized published works are available as well as all currently in progress novels.

Expected pauses: Two children, full-time job – updates are irregular. I am still writing, I swear!

 

Current work in progress order:

  1. The Fiasco, In News – estimated release: June / July
  2. Prince in the Tower (Royal Scales #4) – estimated release: Oct/Nov
  3. Wayward Online: Tales – 1st release of 2018?
  4. Lawless Ink – 2nd release of 2018?
  5. Prince of Neverwas (Royal Scales #5) – 3rd release of 2018?
  6. Silk Bird Cage (Fragments of Aeon #1) – 4th release of 2018?

 

General series lengths:

  • The Fiasco is plotted at 3 books.
  • Royal Scales is plotted at 7-8 books
  • Wayward Online is plotted at 5 books
  • Fragments of Aeon is plotted at 5 books
  • Lawless Ink is plotted at 4 (huge) books

 

This doesn’t include other projects out there that may grab me. In short, provided sanity doesn’t run out – I plan on releasing three to four books a year, for a long time.

 

 

Semi Cover Reveal? The Fiasco – Needs Your Input!

layersfiasco2layersfiascolayersfiasco3

Woohoo! This has been a long time coming (we commissioned a design in February) our first foray into illustrative covers and we’re quite pleased with the outcome. However we have a little snag on perfecting the book title and author font.

We need your help!!! I’ve created a poll for the three examples above that are possible cover choices – please keep in mind that we CAN move the title and author name around so those aren’t stuck in place so if you feel like one is good but you just wish the author name was higher/lower on the cover please feel free to make a comment here or on the poll itself! Absolutely any comments/questions/concerns are welcome regarding the three choices – I hope to hear from you all and get your help and opinions! Thank you 🙂

Book Review: Her Majesty’s Wizard by Christopher Stasheff

Today’s review is a portal fiction, one of the originals that got me started years ago. Her Majesty’s Wizard—book one in a fun series.

If you’ve been a long-time fantasy reader, but have never touched the Wizard in Rhyme series —then you need to back up and give this one a go. Seriously, look at the first book. I started with one later in the series, then picked up the first one. It was very enjoyable.

T.V. Show Review – River

Time for a Television show review. River, not about rivers, but a detective named River.

Hold onto your horses, I’m about to go full on frothing at the mouth, soapbox, ranting homeless guy on a street corner at you. River’s acting is fan-forking-tastic. I’m not kidding. There are a few reasons but it’s mostly the acting.

Hi all, hope you’re having a great weekend so far, I know we are because April has been a wonderful month for us and 2 awesome things happened just yesterday.

First: I mentioned a while back we had plans to pursue an audiobook for the Continue Online series… perhaps Stephan will write a ramble about the process, but it was a long one, much longer than we had anticipated, but we took away a lot of lessons and next time should be smoother! But it’s here, Continue Online Part 1, Memories officially has an audiobook, you can click the picture or caption to take you to Audible. OR if you are one of the first 5 people to email frustratedwriting AT gmail DOT com you will receive a FREE code for a credit to download Continue Online!*ETA these are US Audible codes* This is a thank you to those who still follow Stephan’s blog, have supported us by commenting here on his drafts/rambles/etc… buying his books and just being an awesome audience. Thank you!!!

Second: We received the first round of edits back for The Fiasco In News from our amazing editor – she cleaned house for sure, and there’s a bunch of feedback/comments for Stephan to fix now (yes, he just groaned lol). 100% worth it to produce the best possible book for all you superhero novel fans!!! Once he’s done with his side of the edits, we’ll send it back for a final round of proofreading and then if there’s interest, we will be offering up ARC copies of a fully polished/edited book! I’ll announce that sometime closer to release (we’re thinking late July). Oh and the cover…. oh yes, our FIRST(won’t be our last) illustrated cover, it’s fan-frickin’-tastic… just wait 😉

As always, feel free to leave comments/questions/concerns below!

 

Author Interview by Scott Mullins at This Is Writing

Hey all!

I wanted to share an interview Stephan did with Scott Mullins at thisiswriting.com. You can check out the post here.

Scott’s site is an awesome resources for writers and readers as he has posts offering writing/marketing tips, and readers can possibly find interviews of their favorite authors or find new authors/books as he also posts book reviews/book excerpts(hint:excerpts of Once Lost Lords and Trials of the Chief are there too!) Thank you, Scott, for the opportunity!

Enjoy!
