So far I’ve made four knives.  Its been a lot of fun but I have a lot to learn.  I made a lot of mistakes on these knives and am hoping to improve for my next set.  The last couple of pics show all four, but the angle is misleading.  It makes it look like the knife in the front is bigger, when its not.  The knife in the back is actually the biggest.  Which knife is your favorite?

I’ve always loved bladed weapons.  I’m unsure if that love was a result of being a fantasy nerd, or me being a fantasy nerd was a result of my love for bladed weapons.  Either way, I’ve always been attracted to the shine of an edged weapon.  For years I’ve played with the idea of making my own knives and weapons.  Then the t.v. show, Forged in Fire came out and re-lit that interest.  I decided to do it.  Below are my first two knives.  I have limited tools right now so it was quite time consuming to put these two knives together.  I loved the process and hope to fit the hobby between my writing, fly fishing, wine making, beer making, cider making, working out, traveling…I think you get the picture.  I’m hoping to get better and faster, but for my first two knives I think these turned out pretty good (thanks YouTube).

I got the cover all ready for print.  Just waiting on the kindle and nook formatting and then off to publication.  Look for it soon.  What do you think of the cover?  Mario Teodosio did an amazing job and I found a new artist to do the lettering and design.  Her name is Mihaela Voicu.  Look for her on DeviantArt.  She was amazing and great to work with.

I’ve been waiting on the cover art for my new book, The Glimmer Blade, and here it is!  I love it.  I think Mario Teodosio did a great job, really capturing the scene well.  This book will be a stand alone book about Brant Anwar, the bad ass swordsman from the Steel Lord series.  I hoping it will be available within a month or so.  What do you think of the cover art?

Writing update: I just finished the first draft of my new book, The Glimmer Blade. This book is a stand alone book about Brant Anwar, one of the main characters in my Steel Lord Series. I think right now it’s one of my favorites. My artist is working on a cover as we speak and I will start to dive into editing and rewriting. I’ll keep you posted as the work continues. If you haven’t checked out my books yet, I’m offering the Kindles for 2.99 for the entire month of December. Enjoy and happy holidays.

Happy Holidays everyone.  Now is a good time to check out my books as I’m offering all of them (kindle version) for $2.99 for the entire month of December.  Give them a shot and as always, thanks for your support.

Okay, for all you Brant fans out there, I’ve started my next book staring the bad ass swordsman.  I plan on doing something similar with these books as I did with the Cavalier Trilogy.  I finished the “Steel Lord” story, but still want to continue some off-shoot tales about Brant, just as I did about Jonas in the Cavalier Trilogy.  So, this book, which is tentatively called The Glimmer Blade, is a stand alone story staring Brant Anwar, one of the main character from the Steel Lord Series.  I have a rough outline in place and am deep into chapter two.  It usually takes me a year to complete a book so I have a long ways to go.  I’m hoping to get the artist that did my Shadow Knight book, Mario Teodosio, to do the cover for this next book.  I’ll keep you posted on everything as I progress.  Thanks as always for your support.

My friend was vacationing in Portland Oregon last week.  Look what she found in Powell’s Book Store!  I can’t tell you how cool it is to see your own book in a big book store like Powell’s.

Finally, I am happy to say that my new book, The Shadow Knight, is now available on Amazon.  This has been a long year and a very slow process, but it is finally complete.  This is book one of Jonas’s new role as Shyann’s Shadow Knight.  This will not be  series, but stand alone books featuring Jonas in this new role, as well as new characters, and of course the old ones.  I hope you enjoy it.  Use the link below to buy the kindle.  The paperback will be available shortly.
