The In-Progress WIPs
Heart of Fire/Slave-becomes-Dragonrider
Heart of Fire is the title of book one. Books two and three still untitled. This is the story about a slave who is desperate to be a Dragonrider and discovers she has an extremely powerful magic that has never been seen before. Desperately believes she does not have a destiny. A supporting main character is a girl from the third continent (Galen) who has nothing obviously special about her, but has been chosen by the Obsidian Guardian to be her rider (companion, friend). Heart of Fire is finished, in need of proof-reading and a cover, and I plan to release late 2022 or Spring 2023. I am about 65k into book two. An Areaer trilogy or quartet.
This is the story of Dawn-song, a half-elf contemporary of the previous WIP. Little can be said about it, because the premise is a spoiler for early books I’m not ready to release yet, but Dawn-song is an amateur linguist who is obsessed with a story most believe to be a children’s fairy-tale. I call it the library WIP because the opening scene is my MC reading in the library. My MC spends a lot of this one alone, and it is a deep delve into a personal journey and quest. Book one finished, and in need of a cover, blurb, and proof-reading. I am about 10k into book two. I do not have an expected approximate release date. An Areaer trilogy.
This is the story of Lìrulin and Eldor, the elf hunter/huntress and the human Valor Knight who are the parents of Tara-lin (MC of the Legend of the Singer). The synopsis of their quest is told in Children of the Dryads, in Tara-lin’s thoughts. This is the full story of how they met, fell in love, survived Eldor’s desperate mission, and went to Elethri to take a little time away from the world in peace. This is currently my only attempt to write a romance. Current length is about 70k. An Areaer standalone.
This one is dual PoV with 2 MCs. No romance foreseen. Features two of the Southern Nations and the fall of the Valor Alliance. I’m about 5k words in. Too early to see how many books it will be. No titles yet. An Areaer novel/series.
Features Galen, the southern continent of Aneri. Will involve an m/f platonic relationship. MC will have a strong connection to storms/lightning, but starts off exclusively personal stakes and very slice of life. About 5k words in. No titles yet. An Areaer trilogy.
Breaking of the Dragon-sword
This one will have a much better name sometime, but it doesn’t yet. This is the story about the bearer of the Dragon-sword before Noren, the one in whose hands it broke, and his lover. Just started. An Areaer standalone.
New World Story
This one is written in 1st person PoV and involves no humans. It is very young and set in a brand-new world, so still in the first stages of developing. I am about 10k words in.
I think this is it. If I’ve missed one, I may add it later, but be aware, progress updates won’t usually be more frequent than once a month. Last date updated: 6/8/2022
