And there it is, ladies and gents. The Untenable is the second book in the epic fantasy series, Erafeen. I must once again thank Alessandro Brunelli for illustrating an absolutely stunning cover that perfectly captures the tone of this book.

The Untenable—while still fun, quirky, and magical—delves head-first into darker subject matter. The members of the Jestivan explore their somber pasts filled with heartbreak and tragedy as their families begin to enter the fold. And of course the world around them is falling apart during all of it.

One of the most exciting features of The Untenable is the introduction of the world’s magic system to the reader. Yes, you get a scientific breakdown and everything. On top of this, Kuki Sphaira’s rich history is further explored as power players around the world take their positions. Pre-Order the eBook on Amazon, iTunes, Nook, Smashwords, or Kobo (more to come soon).

Here’s the summary of The Untenable:

Bryson LeAnce and the rest of the Jestivan just escaped death’s grips at the hands of a foreign king and his divine protector. But they needed help. Now they return to Phesaw limping and wounded with more loss than just pride: Phesaw is down a member.

Thankful to still be alive, the Jestivan begin training harder than ever while dealing with their own issues. When family strikes a chord with a number of members, they must navigate an ambiguous trail of morality and loyalty, and not lose sight of what really matters.

The world begins to reshape itself as centuries of peace finally hit a wall. With a king’s demise, the door has been blown open for a new leader. And power players across the world are trying to reach their hands into the pot, strategically positioning themselves to grab a spot atop the Light Realm’s bastard kingdom.

Meanwhile, Dev Assassins lurk in the farthest reaches of Phesaw’s campus, multiple kingdoms fall victim to unknown rogues, and a man’s forces grow in numbers as he sculpts a hierarchy to his hodgepodge crew.

While the eBook will be available for pre-order, the paperback won’t be available for purchase until the book publishes (August 6th). I’m sorry.

If you’re reading this and haven’t read the first book yet, then go ahead and grab a copy for free at Amazon.

Should I give you more pictures for fun? Okay.

Final Revision Layer Completed

Final Revision Layer Completed

I’m exhausted. Listen, I love my story, world, and characters, but when you read through a book five times in the span of two months, you kind of want to rip your eyes out of your skull.

With that said, it was worth it. It’s what you have to do to make sure you give the readers the very best. And now I have good news. The last layer of editing is completed. I’ve built, fine-tuned, and tested the content; now it comes down to polishing. That would be the formatting … or turning the manuscript into an actual book, adding the front matter (maps, table of contents, publisher information, etc.), and other little things that are necessary.

Meanwhile, my illustrator is making progress on the book cover. It is looking GORGEOUS. And once I finish formatting the book, I can give him the proper dimensions to finish the book’s spine.

We’re well on our way to Erafeen #2’s release, and I want all of you to stay tuned for the cover and title reveal because it’s coming within the month.

Man I’m excited. We’re picking off these roadblocks one-by-one.

I should be ashamed of how long it’s been since I last used a Michael Scott gif.

Remember that The Jestivan (Erafeen, #1) is FREE on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, iTunes/iBook, Smashwords, Kobo, and NoiseTrade. The paperback is also available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Books-A-Million.

And as always, don’t forget to leave me a review on Amazon or Goodreads after reading my book. It helps more than anything else!

Well that’s it guys and gals. Thanks for motivating me to keep going. Have an ethical day.

Small Update

Small Update

Hey friends.

This will be quick, nothing major. I recently released images of the new maps that will be featured in Erafeen #2 (click here if you missed it). Get your first look at the Cyn, Passion, Still, and Archaic Kingdoms.

Alessandro, the illustrator for my book covers, sent me some mock-ups today of what he’s been working on. All I can say is that it’s going to be beautiful and will set the tone for how the story feels, and I can’t wait to show the finished product with all of you—and that includes a title release, so I don’t have to keep calling it “Erafeen #2”.

Sadly, I’m in the middle of a fourth read-through of Erafeen #2. We’re now on the book’s fourth draft, and it should be the last. Or at least I hope so. My brain has turned to mush. As proud as I am of this story, reading it four times in a row is … ugh. Especially after the gazillion times I’ve read through bits and pieces of it as I wrote it.

So that’s all I have tonight. Remember that The Jestivan is still free on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords, and NoiseTrade, or by subscribing to my newsletter.

Have an ethical day.
