Update on upcoming YA novel “Stone Ram.”


Editing continues for my upcoming YA novel “Stone Ram” which is scheduled for release on on April 22, 2014 in both paperback and kindle. As stated in earlier posts this YA novel will feature a blind teen protagonist called Fabian SilverSword. Here is a short synopsis from the novel in case you missed it:

The Kingdom of Rek is in trouble!
It’s holiest artifact, The Golden Mane, has been stolen by Xot Marauders and is on its way to the Darklands, a lawless domain under the rule of the Blood Reeper, an evil undead warlord who harbors plans for conquering Rek and its peaceful neighboring states.
When the Gold King of Rek issues a crusade to retrieve the stolen Mane, a blind shepherd boy named Fabian SilverSword accepts the challenge, much to the dismay of his parents. Along with his friends, Lager McVick, an exiled Starfighter pilot from Earth, and Marella Larue, a mysterious Stealer from the Republic of Pazland, Fabian must survive the trek through Rek’s Eastern Frontier before navigating the unknown dangers of the three Hellion Doors.

Many people have written to ask more about the world-building and while the name of the planet this takes place on is shrouded in mystery, there will be a detailed full-color map included in the eBook version while a standard black & white map will be inserted in the paperback version. This will enable readers to follow the characters on their Gold Quest.

I am about 33% of the way through with editing and this novel promises to have all the major thrills of an old-fashioned good versus evil plot, with many twists and turns and cliffhanger chapter-endings.

I believe this book is for every fantasy/sci-fi fan as it also features a trouble Earth pilot named Stephen “Lager” McVick from Earth. A stranded starfighter pilot who serves as Fabian’s advisor and most importantly, friend.

Then there is the mysterious Marella Larue who is the love interest. Stay tuned for more information about these exciting new characters.
