The Light of Ak’ron
Let me update you on the Kingdom of Torrence series – book three. Over the last year I have been working on book three of the Kingdom of Torrence series. I made it through chapter eight when I decided to scratch what I had done and start over. Even the Beta Readers are anxiously awaiting a preview.
Book three starts off with Jerrod, Amanda, and Rhonda in Trisdale Keep where Jerrod gets a premonition that Nathanial somehow survived the Battle of Dometer Plains. Amanda and Rhonda ride off to Lithlillia to ask Rhonda’s mother to provide Elves and druids to help them. Meanwhile, Jerrod projects himself to Torrence to enlist Fraum’s help and inform the king. As if things are not already complicated enough, the Queen of Witches who has been watching them is confronted by the goddess Hecatē.
The manuscripts has the return of some old characters and the introduction of some new ones. A new shadow threatens Torrence and Lithlillia and the followers of Asgard march south. I often wonder which character is liked most; if you have an opinion, comment below (you may influence the rewrite of the manuscript).
My doctor gave me an ultimatum to get healthy resulting in an “increased” amount of time at the gym. I have also been preoccupied with home repairs and illness – all drawing time from my writing. I am often reminded that life gets in the way of plans. I have adopted a new quote for life from the movie, High Road to China.
“The ox is slow, but the earth is patient.” Patrick O’Malley played by Tom Selleck
However, for writing, I still rely upon my creative writing professor at the University of Maryland.
“Just keep writing.”
On the upside, I have increased my tweet activities. Catch me at:
