Kingdoms of Magic:
A Red Band Tale

Wizard's Weapon

This will be the first novel in this new Epic High Fantasy series.  There will be many kingdoms, various types of magic, and plenty of new races.  Tying it altogether will be a host of intricate plots and, most importantly, many interesting and engaging characters. One such group of interesting people are the members of the Red Band.

However, it all begins with a simple farm girl who has no idea what is in store for her among the countries of the Ring Continent of Cratera.

Expect this first of many novels the Kingdoms of Magic series in 2021.
UPDATE: Wizard's Weapon is finished, but going through corrections.

Wizard's Weapon


Kingdoms of Magic:

This a new series set in the world of Cratera.  The series is a traditional fantasy epic, following different people and groups at the same time.  In fact, characters from one story will pass through other books, and visa versa.

Right now, I'm busy building up the world, which means, all the countries, religions, races, history, story lines, characters, etc.
