seasons change. . . and so do characters. . .

“It’s really irritating when you open a book, and 10 pages into it you know that the hero you met on page one or two is gonna come through unscathed, because he’s the hero. This is completely unreal, and I don’t like it.”–George R.R. Martin

Henry de Grey, my main character, “leaves Southampton in high spirits, strong in his faith and passionate about the mission to take Jerusalem back from Saladin’s army.” You should be able to tell from my quote this week that the Henry you will meet in March 1190 in the opening chapter of Battle Scars I is a far cry from the man he will become by the end of the book. A good story shows more than just show a day-in-the-life. It shows a character changing, reacting to the people and the world around him. I wouldn’t want you to get bored. Come, join Henry’s adventure with Sir Stephan and Sir Robin whilst they serve Richard the Lionheart on the Third Crusade.


Winter has turned to Spring, and I have been promising a spring publication date. That gives me until mid-June, right? Just kidding. 🙂 I am ordering the remaining cover graphics this weekend from Travis at  Next week I hope to upload the files for print and e-book versions for Amazon and order my proof copies to look over. I should be able to have the Nook version available about the same time as the Kindle version if all goes according to plan.
