Most Anticipated of 2020

I went into 2019 eagerly anticipating several movies, games, and television shows–remarkably, I think there’s even more in 2020 that I’m now looking forward to. I’m going to be a busy man this year with how many times I expect to visit the movie theater, or how many books and comics I plan to read, or how many video games I know I’ll be sitting down day one to start playing. Here is the movie, novel, television show, comic, video game, and sporting event I’m most excited for in 2020.

Cover art for Book 3, Radiant Fate

After many years of work, my time writing The Legend of Light trilogy is nearing its end. Myself and my amazing team of proofreaders are deep into the editing process on the final book’s manuscript, which I completed the first draft of earlier this year. Book 3, Radiant Fate, is coming together nicely, and while I cannot provide a guaranteed release date at this moment, I am fairly confident that it will debut sometime in December. As with the other books in the series, it be available on Amazon in print and Kindle format.

The Influence of Kaiju, and Other Giant Monsters On The Legend of Light

I’ve been a giant monster fanboy for a very long time, just about all of my life. I can still can remember that day I was walking through a Toys R Us store as a three-year-old with my parents, and my eyes were eventually drawn to a VHS copy of King Kong vs. Godzilla. When I watched it with my family back home later that night, and we watched Godzilla’s introduction where he emerges triumphantly from an iceberg, it was love at first sight.

Something about that big, atomic fire breathing lizard just resonated with me as a youngster. Kong was pretty cool to me, too, as were so many of the other giant monsters I would go on to see in films and television, primarily those of the Japanese variety (Kaiju). They came in such a wide array of sizes, shapes, colors, abilities, and personalities, but all fearsome and awe inspiring in their own unique ways. I didn’t really follow superheroes or DC/Marvel comics until my high school years, so as a kid I didn’t have much interest in Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, or Wonder Woman―my heroes were Godzilla, Kong, Gamera, and Mothra.

And then there’s the other tradition I love at the end of the year; what has me most excited for the coming year! I’ve been hyping it for months that 2019 will be an absolute homerun for movies, video games, and tv. It’s going to be jammed packed with awesome releases, too many to count for each category! Here’s what I’m most looking forward to in the coming year.

A Gleaming Path Excerpt – A Night in the Arid Reaches

My very helpful proofreaders and I are currently in the process of editing the manuscript for Book 2 in The Legend of Light, A Gleaming Path. I can’t put an exact date on a publication at this point, but we are very much well on our way to finishing this, and I can confidently say that we will see a print version sooner rather than later.

As we creep closer to that inevitable release, I’m here to continue offering glimpses into the story with exclusive excerpts straight from the manuscript. Two major additions to the story in A Gleaming Path are featured here. In this middle entry to The Legend of Light trilogy, readers will get to know more of the mysterious, reclusive Aesur people, who live on the highest peaks in the Tower Mountains, and have developed a form of magic called Airtaming, where they manipulate the winds and air currents to their whim. One of those Aesur in the spotlight is Elisstriss, Dayneth’s younger sister, who is one of the mightiest Airtamers of them all.
