Sure, the original Red Mage was published a couple of years ago but this is not that book! Well, it is and isn't, I updated it and I incorporated the novelette "commencement," which no one knew they were supposed to read first, into it. It is now a complete book with both stories intertwined. It is a great stepping off point for the series. I worked hard to re-write and add to the book. I also had it re-edited by Courtney Umphress, and re-branded with a wonderful cover by Sanja Gombar. Blue Mage will be out in a few weeks and Black Mage a few after that, in fact, I plan to release all the books in this series fairly rapidly. It's ambitious, and I hope I am up to the task! I will deliver my best! But, if you think I am stopping there you are wrong. I have my entire epic fantasy series "Shadows of the First Trine" about ready to hit the shelves too. I hope to have book 1 "Seer of Shadows" out about the same time as the new Red Mage. Actually, I am about to flood my author page with new books.
