Adieu, Adios, Toodles, Slan, Auf Wiedersehen, Ciao, Sayonara, Dasvidaniya, Zàijiàn, and Goodbye.



The drums of war have sounded and I must respond. The queen has fallen, and Naretia has been plunged into a devouring darkness. Now, I must help this world find its way into the light before they are consumed.


Yes, it has come to that time where I must hang up my blogging hat and don my writers cap. My social media frenzy must come to an end so I can create the second adventure to my fictional world. The Paladins of Naretia have fallen, now I must see who is left.



For the next six months, or so, Books and Authors will go dark and the worlds within will grow dusty and weathered. But fear not, I will still be around to answer emails and tweet the occasional important tidbit.


But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The dust wont be allowed to settle for long. I will be back after Christmas to bring you more novels that will capture your imagination and trigger the primal fears within. Fingers crossed, one of them will be my own.

Until then, I'd like to thank everyone who took the time out of their busy day to read and comment on my blog. I am truly grateful that you helped me reach my goal of over 10,000 page views a month. More importantly, I am grateful that you helped to spread the word about the wonderful authors I interviewed and hope to see you all again after Christmas.

May your imaginations fly you to dreamful adventures, never to suffer the doldrums of reality again.
