A Note of Thanks

Hi all:

I wanted to post a huge thank you to my readers who picked up a copy of my latest book, The Dragons Revenge. It has exceeded my expectations in every way and reinforced my belief that if you write what you are passionate about, it will resonate with your audience.

I love epic fantasy; always have, always will. World building (or in this case, New Earth building) is such a challenge and so much fun that the stories seem to write themselves. And yes, I know that’s a cliche. It’s also true sometimes.

Even though the book’s only been out for a couple of weeks, the response has been even greater than for the first book in the series, The Dragons Return. That tells me that some people were waiting to see if I was serious about writing a new series and, when they saw that I’d released a second book set in the same world, decided to jump in and begin exploring my work. I could not be more pleased.

I’d like to send a shout out to my readers from India. I had no idea that there was such an enthusiastic appetite for epic fantasy in your country, but I wanted to thank you for your lovely support.

The third book in the series is well underway. As I did for the last book, I’ll be releasing a picture of the cover and title a few days before the book goes online for sale, so I hope you like it.

Thanks again for the support from all of you. After all, if you write a book and no one reads it, you’re just talking to yourself. It’s much more fun to share.

Take care,

J.J.

My New Novel, The Dragons Revenge, is out!

Hi all:

My new novel is now available. Tales from the New Earth, Book 2: The Dragons Revenge is online now and here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UGUMA7K. Or click on the cover to the right of this post.

My hero, Simon O’Toole, is still trying to find his feet as a novice wizard and the New Earth is becoming an ever more dangerous place. This world that I’ve created is so much fun for me to visit and explore, I think I’ll be spending a lot of time there.

However, for those who have written to me, asking if I’ve abandoned my first two series, let me reassure you that I haven’t. Unfortunately, I can only focus on and write one book at a time, but I know where each of those series is going and I’ve done some writing for both, so please, hang in there!

I want to thank all of my readers for their continued support. My main joy in life is creating characters and worlds and discovering, along with everyone else, what happens next. I really hope you have a great time with the new book!

Take care,

J.J.
