Cover Art, Blurb, and Release Date Announcement: Knight of Fire, Terra 2

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!

Wow! It's been a while since I posted some writing news. I promise you, that's not because I haven't had anything going on in my little writing world. I've been writing, writing, writing away. Now I'm thrilled to announce that one of those books I've been working on is in edits and will soon be making its way in the world! And that book is....Knight of Fire, Book 2 in the Terra series!

This book has been a long time coming. I worked on it for seven months before finally turning it over to my fantastically talented editor at MLR Press. With how long it's taken me to write this story, I'm super excited to share some more information about it.

Knight of Fire is the second book in my Terra series, the first being To The Other Side. As of right now, my plans for the Terra series is to make it four books and I've already started working on Book 3. I thought with how long Book 2 took me to write, I better get on the next one right away!

This story will bring back characters familiar to those who read To The Other Side and for those who haven't read the first one, I do recommend reading it first. You probably could get by without giving To The Other Side a read, but as is typical to me with my series, all the stories will follow a timeline and build off each other.

At this moment, Knight of Fire has a tentative release date of...April 25th! That's subject to change if editing takes a bit longer, but that's what we're shooting for.

And now, the cover! When I saw this cover, I almost screamed aloud, I was so thrilled with it. It fit so perfectly with what I was hoping for, all the way down to the royal blue color on Sir Karrick's regalia, his horse, Storm, and the archer on the back cover. I'm head over heels excited about it! And the may remember how I mentioned my editor at MLR Press being "fantastically talented." Along with the amazing work she does on making my books pretty on the inside, she did the same for this story on the outside. Yep, all the credit for this cover goes to the amazing Kris Jacen. My gratitude and appreciation go out to her for all her hard work.

Without further ado, I would like to present, Knight of Fire! I welcome everyone to return to Terra for more adventures with Torran, Karrick, and all their companions!

Once in the kingdom of Ocassus, humans and dragons shared the lands as allies. That time has passed into legend. But there's one who wants to see it return.

As a Dragon Speaker, Torran is gifted with the rare ability to understand dragons. He knows dragons aren't the vicious, mindless creatures many believe them to be and uses his gift to save them. It's a lonely task. He's never found a partner who understands him. He doesn't believe he ever will.

Sir Karrick Brenton is a Knight of the Crown and a man with in particular that draws him to Torran. They come from different positions in life, but never has he met anyone he feels more kindred to than Torran.

When Torran is requested to come to the capital city of Dragon's Landing, both he and Karrick realize their passion for each other. As he seeks to help the king, soon dangers to the crown shift to him, Karrick, and their friends.
