October update

Hello, readers! Just a quick note to say that I made a number of minor changes to the site, including new artwork and a new page with information on related books in the series. It may have gone unnoticed due to my lack of announcing it, but I also added a new vignette a few months ago. Enjoy, and feel free to message me with any comments!

June update

Hello, readers! Apologies for the radio silence of late, but I have some updates now to hopefully make up for that. It’s been a great first few months for Enduring Chaos so far and I’m looking forward to a busy summer getting out to more events to spread the word.

To that end, I have updated the upcoming events page with all the events (currently!) scheduled, and there are lots of them! I am going to conventions and festivals in Milton, Guelph, and Hamilton, Ontario, and crossing the border to return to Gen Con in Indianapolis this year. Check out the upcoming events page for information on all appearances I will be making.

Also, some new art has been added to the gallery, including a gorgeous portrait of Damian by Chris Babarik:

And a bit of a joke drawing of my own creation, featuring Damian with a wardrobe change:

Also, I am very excited to announce that the trailer will be going live within the next week! So stay tuned for that.

Finally, on the writing front, book 2 is progressing, and I am also pleased to report that there will be two all-new short stories from the world of Elderra appearing in the anthology Missing Pieces V, launching at Gen Con! Both stories feature a major character in Enduring Chaos, one of which is written by myself and the other by my collaborator J. R. Dwornik. These stories will be available exclusively in this anthology, so be sure to come to Gen Con to pick up your copy in August.

That’s it for now, but stay tuned, more updates are coming.

Update: Cover reveal and giveaway!

For this week’s update, I am proud to present the cover art for Enduring Chaos!

Cursed with fearsome eyes and a dangerous gift, any chance of Damian Sires having an ordinary life was dashed the moment she was born. All her life, she has hidden her abnormalities and fought for acceptance behind the shadow of a veil and her respected merchant father.

When Damian’s power spirals out of control and casts her out alone into the world, she finds herself caught up in plots as old as the gods themselves. Bitter exiles, deposed nobility, clandestine knights, and a divine being with an ancient grudge all close in on the unstable power radiating from Damian.

Desperate to keep that power contained, she sets out with mysterious allies in an attempt to find someone who can help her in a world that fears magic. Yet the source of Damian’s ability is far more deadly than she imagined.

In addition to the cover reveal, I am offering a giveaway to win a free e-copy of Ruins of Change by J. R. Dwornik, the first book in the world of Elderra! Simply comment on this post  by October 25th and you will automatically be entered into the giveaway.

Indiegogo campaign complete! The verdict…

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to our campaign to raise funds for production of a live action trailer for Enduring Chaos. I really appreciate everyone’s support and I am pleased to say that we made our goal! I’m really looking forward to seeing how this trailer comes out, and of course, I’m quite eager to share it with you when it’s ready.

As a reminder, I will be at the Pirate Festival in Milton, Ontario this weekend, Saturday through Monday. I’ll be giving readings on the stage each day of the festival from 2:30-3:00 p.m., and on Monday I will have a new advance reading from Enduring Chaos. In addition to that, I will have a special treat for attendees: a first look at the cover art for Enduring Chaos! This has not yet been shared anywhere else in the world, so please come out and take a look on Monday.

Next site update coming on Friday. See you then!
