Feeling excited and accomplished this past week, as I’ve finished the rough draft of my second Fey Matter novel. As yet untitled, it currently weighs in at 95K words (though I’m sure it’ll grow a bit in editing) and follows Effie as she uncovers a series of shocking events springing from the aftermath of THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN.
“That notoriety persuaded her little did not lessen the desire that gripped her to have a voice in the matter, one that would rattle the empire and shake free the parasitic hold of prejudices against the fey.”
Work on THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN continues as I get my marketing ducks in a row. I saw a mock up of the cover, and I’m excited to reveal it, hopefully sometime soon!
Last, Garrett Calcaterra, one of the co-authors of THE ROADS TO BALDAIRN MOTTE has posted his novella from that book for FREE on Wattpad. What, free? Yep, and if you like that, you can also check out his YA fantasy novel, DREAMWIELDER, as well.
The novella is entitled, ON THE BLACK WIND TO BALDAIRN MOTTE, and you can find it by clicking here.
Bookwraiths has posted a great review of, The Roads to Baldairn Motte!
Where other series tend to focus on the “power players” of these types of conflicts, here the three authors decided to take a different approach, shining the spotlight on the more common folk in the tale…

I’ve posted an interview I did with Ahimsa Kerp, one of my co-authors from The Roads to Baldairn Motte, over on Realm Tramper. In addition to fiction writing, Ahimsa has written for numerous travel zines and has traveled to more countries in the past 24 months than many people get to in a lifetime.

A review of, The Roads to Baldairn Motte, from Beauty in Ruins:
For a heroic fantasy novel written by not one, not two, but three authors – Garrett Calcaterra, Craig Comer, and Ahimsa Kerp – The Roads to Baldairn Motte is a surprisingly well-structured, remarkably cohesive tale that actually benefits from the different voices, without seeming fragmented.

Plunged into a war of succession, captains, lords, and simple crofters struggle against the winds of fate. But try as they might, all roads lead them to the ruins at Baldairn Motte.
“I was drawn into the world of Baldairn Motte at once by the rich prose and promise of high adventure, but it was the characters and the fast moving story that held me literary hostage.”
– James P. Blaylock,
Winner of the World Fantasy Award
“The authors have created a rich world that leaps off the page…”
