Release day is finally here!

Release day is a special day for writers. After months of writing, rewriting, editing…and waiting, the day comes when your work is ready to be witnessed by the world. As excited as I am, there is always that feeling of nervousness and trepidation.

I want to thank all the souls who have been with me on this journey. Your kind words, patience, and overall support do not go unnoticed. For those new to the Dragon Rising Series…WELCOME! There is always room for you at our table.

Thanks again.

Oceans of love,

The sequel to the award winning, Shadow of Kings continues with Shades of Virtue. While the Hugue recovers from the devastation, the Order of the Secret Throne resumes their agenda. Lord Yannic and his armies march the breadth of the Vol Thaldane to rally the divided Human fiefdoms into the new realm of Shyrlandia, while engaging the Braug tribes and Harhn Hordes still plaguing the region. And like so many wearing the heraldry of the Dragon, he must confront the Order’s agenda, and question the sacrifices to be made for the greater good.

In the Hugue, a jousting tournament is about to commence that will determine who wins Lady Basina’s hand in marriage. With the tournament Champion also foreseen to have an impact on Shyrlandia’s future, the Council of Whispers dispatch Lady Lucia and her two apprentices, Dragana and Tallya to oversee the event. But the Order is not the only party interested in the tournament. From her tower in Kethalon, Rizela, the Darkfey sorceress, conspires and schemes to manipulate the tournament for her own ends. Amidst the spectacle of pageantry and martial prowess, Lucia must uncover the dark powers wishing to thwart the Order’s agenda, while supervising her headstrong apprentices. There is more at stake than winning a lady’s hand, for whoever wins the tournament will set events in motion that will forever impact the future realm of Shyrlandia, the Vol Thaldane, and the Hugue.

ShadesofVirtue_medWhen I proposed the concept to the publisher, the senior editor had her doubts that he could pull it off. I never doubted, and sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, Ural Akyuz has hit another home run. I cannot say enough about his artistic abilities.

Now that the cover art is complete, Ural’s next endeavor will be some new art for my swag. If you love Dragons, then you will not be left wanting.

As far as the release of Shades of Virtue is concerned, the actual date has not been nailed down yet by Twilight Times Books, but I’m still hopeful for an end of summer or early fall release.  Trust me, I am just as frustrated as you are, but sometimes that is how things roll in this industry. If you enjoyed Shadows of Kings, I promise the wait will be worth it.

The third book, Shards of Malice is almost complete. I am just putting on the finishing touches. In the months to come, there will be an announcement about a new series related to my Avalla universe.

That wraps things up for now. I hope you like the cover of the second installment of the Dragon Rising series.

Oceans of Love,

Jack
