Here I am again with the recordings! This is the second of my additions to the novels. How to Stop Wildfire it felt natural to have a preface to explain the journey to it and explain it. With Harmonic Waves, my thoughts lingered on the content and what it meant rather than the journey so I chose to do a retrospection that is at the end of the novel. There are some spoilers within which is all the more reason it needs to be read following the book itself.

Read…or listened to. Yep. I recorded myself again. Enjoy!

Jumping On and On

If How to Stop Wildfire was practice that I could take a shred of story and transform it into something great through modernization and revitalization, Harmonic Waves was the first serious capitalization of that experience. It was the second, the successor of the messy first …

This is me reading aloud the new preface before How to Stop Wildfire. Once I get all the books converted Lulu, it will be in the print copy in addition to the new electronic copy version you can get from me.

You can also read it below if you hate listening to recordings like I do:

A Story Before A Story

Once upon a time, there were a few scraps of paper within a notebook that contained a story titled ‘The Creation.’ It had childish humor, a bizarre plot, and characters and ideas very dear to me. It stayed there for many years, gathering dust and the pencil marks slowing fading alway. The memory of it stayed with me, though.

The memory of it and the entire world I had constructed throughout my years. Races. Characters. History.

Stories. So many stories with ‘The Creation’ as just one of …

Of Fractured Edges released!

Sorry, I just had to use make it big and bold. It is just so exciting for me. The first four books of The Adventures of the Trinity and the One are out. This is a big milestone for the journey I began many years ago when I first began work on How to Stop Wildfire. When I first started my writing adventure. This marks the end of an era.

Red, blue, yellow, green. The color motif has concluded.

Fire, water, air, earth. No more simple elemental themes.

We are done with that.

These four stories, ending with Of Fractured Edges, were the beginnings. The defining of each of the four core members of the Trinity and the One: Cyclone, King, Spellbinder, and Farrco. Of Fractured Edges is the sweet, expected end to things started in How to Stop Wildfire. To everything that has happened

It is that time again–time for the cover reveal of my next book + blurb + pre-order and all that jazz. I’m lumping it all together because that’s how I roll.

The book in question is book four of The Adventures of the Trinity and the One is titled Of Fractured Edges. It took me awhile to get to that title. Maybe hours were spent brainstorming it. I knew it had to do with earth and I knew the color was green. Honestly, figuring out the cover was easier than the title. But then by the grace of nature did it all fall together. Literally nature. Before I explain what the art is, here again is the glorious cover for the e-version:

Looks nice? I think so. The background was originally a picture of some mossy tree bark and then with GIMP I tweaked and modified the color tones to

Book three of The Adventures of the Trinity and the One, Threads that Bind the Tempest, has been released! Fantastic, no? I am very proud of this one. It has a different tone, darker, I think, than the other novels thus far, but it sets the stage for a lot to come. It is very powerful, in my opinion. Writing it was rather hard, but the end-result is perfect.

I hope that everyone will enjoy Threads that Bind the Tempest just as I did.

Pick it up on Amazon here.

It’s that time. When you get the appetizer to the next story, in this case Threads that Bind the Tempest. The pre-story story. The lovely and enigmatic blurb.

I’ll stop talking now. Here is the cover to Threads that Bind the Tempest, in all its glory. Stare at it and bask in its glory. I like it a lot.

Cover4And for the more substantial part. The blurb to TTBTT:

The Trinity and the One’s latest adventure threatens to unravel both themselves and the universe.

 

In the months following the Trinity and the One’s success in preventing the Demon Chief Sargon from invading Tyra Kolaq’blegae, Cyclone, King, Spellbinder, and Farrco have been waiting for their next quest. It finally comes to them from a pair of researchers who believe that the laws of reality are being modified. Setting out to discover the truth of this hypothesis, the group

So book three, which is tentatively titled as Threads that Bind the Tempest has a very robust draft, so I can share some little nuggets about the plot and setting. This particular nugget is where in Tyra Kolaq’blegae our intrepid Trinity and the One and the supporting cast will be seeing. Locations to expect and all that.

But first, a recap of where and what we have seen so far. Obviously spoilers for those who have not read both How to Stop Wildfire and Harmonic Waves. So please read those first.


Where have they been so far (seen in the books?) HTSW = How to Stop WildfireHWHarmonic Waves

Harmonic Waves, book two in The Adventures of the Trinity and the One, has been released. Yay! Woo hoo. It is a political thriller-esque humorous novel with some poignant parts. I’m extremely pleased. It is an emotional roller coaster that really shows how much I have improved since writing How to Stop Wildfire. Essentially I wrote Harmonic Waves a few years after HTSW; I spent that time editing the latter. HW was easier to edit because the base quality of the writing had improved so much since my original drafts of HTSW.

So anyway, pick it up, and enjoy.

Harmonic Waves, the sequel to How to Stop Wildfire is now available for pre-order on Amazon. It is priced at $2.99! Praise the Gods! Orak ha! (Gods above!)

Harmonic Waves will be released on September 9th, making it 9/9/15. A pretty good set of numbers as far as the in-verse Numerology is concerned. 3 is holy, and 9 is 3×3 making it a very significant number with high ‘strongness.’ Numerology is actually a large theme in this novel, specifically on one, two, and three, and how they relate to chaos and balance, and both lesser and greater fate. It is a very philosophical at times.
