Way Too Long...

Okay, that took way longer than it possibly should.

I haven't posted on here in around 13 months. Hopefully, I don't continue on that streak. If I do, it won't be for the same reasons at least.

From around December 5, 2011 to October 31, 2012, I did not do much writing at all. I tried to do a number of different stories, but I just didn't have the drive, really.

I really buckled down in November, but I was mainly getting things ready for another series at first. That's when I realized that I needed to work on The Sword of Kirakath badly.

I finished The Blood of Kirakath, Book 3 of The Sword of Kirakath, quickly. It's shorter than either of the other books, though that's because I had to make it short and, in my own opinion, good, or longer and repetitive. The Blood of Kirakath, originally named The Witch of Akabar, was already planned out when The Shadows of Caldreth was published. Changing its plot too much would have messing too much up.

I am actually working on a new series right now and am on the fifth chapter, but that's a topic for another day (and another blog since it isn't set in the same world).

What I really want to discuss now are my books.

In June of 2011, I published Through the Flames.
In December of 2011, I published The Shadows of Caldreth.
In December of 2012, I published The Blood of Kirakath.
And also in December of 2012, I published Rise of the Champion, an omnibus containing the other three books.

With all that said and done, I'd like to share some numbers with you guys (and girls.)

In 2011, I sold 1,246 copies of Through the Flames. I also sold 137 copies of The Shadows of Caldreth, though it was out for less than a full month.

In 2012, I sold 863 copies of Through the Flames, 880 copies of The Shadows of Caldreth, 22 copies of The Blood of Kirakath, and 10 copies of Rise of the Champion. I also gave away a total of 1,969 books for free through Amazon, and that's split between Through the Flames and The Shadows of Caldreth.

So in the end, I sold a total of 3,021 books, gave away a total of 1,969 books, had a total of 7 books rented through Kindle Owner's Lending Library, had a total of 45 refunds, and had a total of 18 reviews in my first two years (2011 and 2012) as a self-published author.

To each and every one of you that supported me, I thank you.

Hopefully, this is just the beginning.

Thanks for reading.



Millennia after Archmage Kyran's death, a hero that he foretold has been born. He must overcome the harrowing trials before him in order to become the hero that he is meant to be, for only he can save the land from what is to come.

With bandits, assassins, and dark mages standing in his path, nothing will be the same.

The rise of the champion is at hand.




Caleb was just a hunter's apprentice. He was content to have a simple life But when he returns home to find his village massacred and his family dead, the whispered words of his dying father hurl him onto a path of blood and vengeance.

In his epic quest for revenge, Caleb will discover that the mightiest of heroes, like the strongest of metals, can only be forged within the hottest fires and under the greatest pressures. His is a destiny which will forever change the face of Arcadia. It is a destiny that can only be reached in one way:

Through the Flames.



With his quest for revenge complete, Caleb finds that life is without purpose and he cannot adapt to a normal life again. When assassins begin to hunt him, Caleb must embark upon another adventure. This time, survival is his only motive.

In his quest for self-defense and the protection of those he calls friends, Caleb will discover that his destiny is far greater than he had ever expected... and it has just begun.




Now wanted for the murder of Count Clovis, Caleb and his friends have sought refuge on the Isle of Akabar. In the lawless land, there is no time to relax. The Blood of Kirakath must be cleansed, and a new enemy is out for blood.

In his new quest, he discovers more than he ever anticipated, but even more questions than answers arise.
