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.
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.
Earlier this year, The Legend of Light kicked off its adventure with the opening volume, The Echoes of Light. This is a young adult, high fantasy trilogy that any fan of such series like The Legend of Zelda, Shannara, Earthsea, and The Chronicles of Narnia should enjoy, one filled with magic, myths, monsters, and loads of action.
A reawakened terror swept across the kingdom of Tordale in Book One, forcing our heroes like the young swordsman, Alamor, and the princess of the kingdom, Raissa Hokara, into action. After obtaining the sacred vessel of magic known as the Radia of Gallantry, Alamor, Raissa, and their companions still have a long journey ahead of them, one which will take them across the oceans surrounding Tordale, and into the perilous desert, the Arid Reaches. Both Alamor and Raissa will continue to develop their understanding of the supreme power they wield, while facing some of Tordale’s bloodiest secrets.
There are certain scenes that stay with you, that you can remember detail for detail off the top of your head. Especially in the case of an author, there are scenes that are so important to you, that you never forget every last thought and feeling that swirled through your body as you were writing a particular moment in your story.
The first book in The Legend of Light trilogy will be releasing in early-mid 2018, so I’m planning all sorts of previews and snippets to show off as we close in on the publication date. Most will appear on the series’ Facebook page, which, if you ‘Like’, you automatically are entered for a chance to win a free copy of book one, Echoes of Light, just before the book’s release.
