It’s COVER REVEAL time! I can’t believe it’s getting this close.

For more years that I can count, I have dreamed of writing a novel. I think I have spent most of my life telling stories in my head; making up characters or pretending to live in far off lands. I would regularly lose myself to daydreams about the worlds I would create if I ever dared to dream of putting these stories to paper.

It’s been almost one year since I finished the first draft of my second novel and what will become my first published work of fiction. I’m excited to share this project with you and I can’t wait until it’s in print. But I still have a lot of work to do before that can happen. Once my beta readers are done, I get another chance at correctly any issues they’ve helped me identify. Then I can give it to the editor. I have no doubt that will result in more writing for me to complete. All that said, it is anticipated that the novel will be published in March 2018.

Did you get that?!? March 2018, my first novel will be published!!!

And what does every novel need? A glorious cover! And I’ve got four. What? Four? Let me explain.

My current writing project will be a trilogy, called The Bond Trilogy. That means, there will be three books, or in my case, three volumes. Turns out I gotta lot of storytelling to do!

The first volume of the Magical Bond Trilogy is Fortitude Rising. This volume will initially be published as a series of three novellas. These novellas will only be available as ebooks: Infraction of the Mind: Episode One of Fortitude Rising, Incite the Power Within: Episode Two of Fortitude Rising, and Embodiment of Magic: Episode Three of Fortitude Rising. A complete volume that includes all three novellas, Fortitude Rising, will be published in paperback shortly following the release of the ebook novellas.

Why three separate novellas? Well, let’s face it. It’s hard becoming an established new author. It’s even harder if your novels are long and exceed a certain word count. By dividing my first book into three smaller chunks, it’s easier to get wary readers to give it a chance. Plus, this gives me the option of making more of the story available to fans sooner rather than later.
