Testament of Steel’s release date!

by Apr 30, 2020Wonderings11 comments

I didn’t have much to say last month, so no newsletter went out. Plus, with the pandemic situation, I just didn’t have the desire or time to create a newsletter. This month is different. My job is straightening up. Things aren’t so up in the air and crazy, so here we go.

First things first. I have a release date for A Testament of Steel. It’s July 20th.

Preorders are already available on Amazon. Just click this link. I’ve said it before, but this book was my love letter to the works of Robert Jordan. I’ve always wanted to write a big fat fantasy (BFF for short—an old 90s terms) in the vein of Wheel of Time. A Testament of Steel is the beginning of my BFF.

The series is about a young man, Cinder Shade. A man with no memory of his past, and about whom little is expected. He’s weak. Broken-bodied. But will and determination can overcome many obstacles. He earns a place at a prestigious elven warrior academy and has the strange ability to speak the language of steel and swords.

His hard-earned skills are put to the test when strange rumblings emanate from deep in the Dagger Mountains. Monsters out of myth emerge. And so does something far worse . . .An ancient god. The world believes this deity long dead, but he is very much alive. And he remembers his enemies all too well. Even if they don’t remember themselves.

      Thank you for reaching out to me, and I’m glad you liked the book so well! The sequel, Memories of Prophecies, is churning along, and I’m hoping to have it ready to release in the 1st quarter of 2021.

        Thank you for responding, Alphonso! And I’m glad it reminds you of the Wheel of Time since the book/series is a love letter to WoT and LotR. Also, I’m sorry about the delayed reply. I could have sword I did, but I must have overlooked this.

    Just read it. After Wot, I am waiting for a new series to binge read. And this could be it! I hope it will be 14 books all in all. Looking forward to 2021!

      Jordan’s legacy is without peer, at least in my estimation, and following on from him is some immense shoes to fill. Hopefully, I hope I can fill them, although, 14 books might be more than I can manage. Would 7 do? Along with 3 featuring the same main characters from Testament of Steel in a different series (The Castes and the OutCastes)? And 5 where those same two characters play a strong role in a third series (the Chronicles of William Wilde)?

        Thank you for reaching out to me, and don’t be distraught. I’m working on book 2, and hopefully, it’ll be out in the first quarter of 2021. In the meantime, if you want to read more about Cinder and Anya, they show up in my William Wilde series, starting in book 3. Warning: you would also then learn exactly who they really are.

    I just got this book finished. A facinating novel.

    I must say i was a bit surprised not to see a certain early on antagonist return by the novels end. But intuition leads me to believe that will be addressed on book 2.

    As a writer myself working on my first series now, I have a plethora of questions I’d love to be able to run by you regarding this story.

      Hi Jesse,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the book, and another writer finding it fascinating is a pretty cool measure that I got some things right. The antagonist in question . . . I think I know who you mean, and that antagonist’s part in the plot isn’t complete. And if you have questions, fire away. I’d be happy to answer.
