The Valley of Thryng (POSTPONED)
UPDATE 6/8/2020: I’ve postponed The Valley of Thryng until I’ve finished or at least gotten to a good place with Lord of Poison. I have so many fantastic ideas for LoP and I can’t just wait to finish VoT to start it, so I’ve decided to place this one on the back burner until I can get some work done in Lord of Poison.
I’m working on a short-story set in the fantasy realm of Kvalheim. The story follows four adventurers; Bylorn, Mili, Wolfdyne, and Tarlbor as they travel the land in search for answers to Bylorn’s ailment known as the Wyverncurse and attempt to unlock the mysteries of the long-forgotten plane known as the Valley of Thryng where all brave warriors travel to ascend mortality.
Ave Plague (Of Man & Machine book 3)
Ave Plague is the title for the 3rd book in the “Of Man & Machine” series and will bring closure to some of the things in XENOCHRIST. This doesn’t mean we’re done seeing these worlds and settings, but it just means I want to have a sort of end-cap on unfinished business from the first book.
Ave Plague will follow a bounty hunter several years after the end of Lord of Poison as he’s hired to track down and kill the terrorist responsible for a series of chemical bombs releasing a deadly toxin.
Ave Plague will feature heavy themes of faith and religion as our bounty hunter struggles with his own past. In keeping on theme with the other 2 books Ave Plague will pay homage to Classical-era music and composers, and of course the idea of gods existing, hence the play on “Ave Maria” but with a more sinister twist.
Ave Plague will most likely be in the area of 150,000 words, if not more, making it my largest novel. This means you can possibly see a release for this in late 2022 as long as work on Lord of Poison goes as planned.
