Welcome. Pull Up a Chair.

Welcome to my author website. I am very, nay…extremely excited to say that Orphans of Tarnalin will be released very soon… within weeks! It has been a very long journey. I started writing Orphans in January of 2012 and to be completely honest I expected to have it published by September or October of that year. Dare I say BAAAHAAAA you silly self? Needless to say, I have a number of excuses that all add up to zip, so I won’t bore you with those. I don’t want to discourage future writers either. Some great authors can produce astonishing work in those timeframes, but I am not one of them; at least I wasn’t. I have learned an awful lot about the craft of writing…and editing , and editing, oh yea and editing, while writing Orphans and like to think that the next book in the series, which is already underway, will present itself in a much more timely fashion.
In any case I am thrilled to throw Orphans of Tarnalin in to the world to hopefully provide fodder for fantasy-loving minds. I would love any feedback, positive or negative as well. That way I may get an idea of what I did right and what I need to improve on. The gold bar for any writer these days in the e-book industry is a positive review; so if you happen to read Orphans I would be very appreciative if you could take the time and let others know. Finally I have one last request and that is if you enjoyed the book and would like an update of when the second in the Bloodline Magic series is to be released please subscribe to my e-mail list. I promise I won’t spam you. Thanks so much

  1. About time my friend! Readers are going to love this book. I was lucky enough to read a rough copy and it captivated me from start to finish. Can’t wait for the next chapter in this series.

  3. Hey John congrats on the release of your book. I just started writing one myself ( wish me luck). I read the sample and it defiantly intrigued me. I’m going to give it a go. I will post a review when I’m done. (P.S. I’m a slow reader)

    Good luck and best wishes.
