A new release…?
It is just about time and getting closer. I expect 2015 will be fast and furious as far as writing goes for me. At least I’m very hopeful as I wrote in an interview posted on P.H. Solomon’s blog Archer’s Aim (check it out to see what I hope to publish and some of the inspirations behind my epic fantasy series!)
Things are progressing well for the release of Stories from the War, the prequel to my military dystopian series Friends of my Enemy. And what makes that even more awesome is that I’ve finished edits on book 1, After the War, and have finished writing the first draft of book 2, Battle for Europe! I’m writing the final book of the trilogy, the Fight for Peace, now while working on edits for book 2. I’m really hoping to see all four books of this series released in 2015! Sign up for my new release email list if you want updates before I get around to posting them here.
And I’m still working on Spark of Defiance, the first book of a new epic fantasy trilogy, Games of Fire. Writing has surged ahead after stalling in chapter 13. But some unanswered plot threads resolved and suddenly I’m up to writing chapter 15! Work here is actually going smoother than the Fight for Peace, since it is only at chapter 9 and still working out some of the kinks to the plot. Having the writing going so well helps spur me on to finish up Friends of my Enemy so I can concentrate on this new epic fantasy trilogy. Soon… with winter finally locking Maine into snowy isolation, I should make some major headway with my writing! Maybe I’ll beat my May deadline to finish the first draft of the Fight for Peace…?
“Great finish for a Great Trilogy!” – New 5 star review on Amazon for Spirit of Life!
“The reader is taken to those fantastical places populated by fantastical creatures, courtesy of Autumn Birt’s unerring knack of description, and the heroes and heroines come alive thanks to realistic dialogue.” – Stewart 5 stars on Amazon
“Just finished Born of Water book 1. Amazing, can’t wait to read the next one. Instant fan, keep up the amazing work!!!” – Edward Brady
“I read a lot of fantasy and I’d rate this as a great new author and a great new story! I can not WAIT for the next book and will check back often for it!” – Katy Reany 5 stars on Amazon
“I would recommend it to fantasy adventure fans, those who like a little romance, and anyone who is a fan of magic! I know I will read the next installment!” – W. Stuart 4 stars on Amazon
“I loved two battle scenes in particular. The battle at the Temple of Dust and the battle at the Temple of Wind. Fire versus water. Air versus Earth. Thrilling!” – Futureboy 4 stars on Amazon
“I’m biased, because this is exactly my sort of book. But maybe that bias should make me more critical…but there is absolutely nothing to dislike about Born Of Water…We’re not simply reading about this quest…we’re there with them.” – Stewart Bint 5 stars on Smashwords
“I’m halfway through Rule of Fire and I’m already looking for news of the next book. I’ll admit to being a fantasy addict, which means I’ve read an awful lot of books over the years from Tolkien onwards and I can honestly say your storytelling and character development are up there with the best of them. Keep writing (please!).” – Ian Leggattby Weifarer
