The King’s Scrolls Blog Tour—Conclusion

BlogTour-TKS2What a week it has been! Thank you to everyone who made this my biggest and best book release ever! There were so many fun and exciting moments. For one thing, The King’s Scrolls hit #1 in Christian Fantasy on Amazon after the first day of release!

TKS 2-18-15

And then, on Thursday, I woke up to discover that Resistance was #1 in at least 3 categories, even beating out Left Behind! :D

Resistance 2-19-15a

It has been at #1 in Christian Fantasy ever since then, which is really cool. Again, a huge thank you to everyone who helped make it happen. It would have been a pretty boring release week without you. If you haven’t started the adventure yet, you can find Resistance and The King’s Scrolls on Amazon for both Kindle and paperback. And if you missed the tour, here’s a recap.

The end of one journey, but the beginning of another.

Now that The King’s Scrolls is finished and out there for the world to discover, it feels like the end of a journey for me. However, it is only the beginning of a new journey as I look ahead to preparing book three for its release. What better way to end this blog tour than to officially announce the book’s title? Some of you know it already since I put it at the end of The King’s Scrolls, but here is my official announcement and temporary cover. Ilyon Chronicles – Book Three is called . . .

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00026]

When an imminent threat rises against the country of Samara, those in Landale must face two desperate struggles—one on the walls of Samara’s mighty stronghold and the other on the battlefield of Jace’s heart where victory might only be achievable through great sacrifice.

I am incredibly excited to share this book. It answers many of the questions I get most often. It’s a big turning point in the series. While I don’t have a release date for it, I would very much like to release it yet this year. But only time will tell. It all depends on how editing goes. Your prayers as I soon start the editing process are very much appreciated. I have one more thing to leave you with as I end this tour and look ahead to the next book. This song, On My Own by Ashes Remain, was my number one source of inspiration while I was writing Samara’s Peril. If the book were ever made into a movie and then had a music video, this would be the song I’d want for it. It fits the story perfectly.
