The Guardians Book 5: Grand Master

The Guardians Book 5, which I have decided, after much deliberation, to entitle ‘Grand Master’ draws together events occurring around the galaxy wherein ‘The Guardians’ series is set, and sets the scene for the story’s conclusion.

Some of the characters and scenes that were introduced in book 4, ‘Storm Conjurer’, may appear to be a digression from the main story-line, however, they are integral to the unwinding and final conclusion of the prophecy, which will be made clear in this book.

I have completed re-writing ‘Grand Master’, and am in the process of undertaking the final proofing and polishing. As with book 4, this has taken far longer than expected, with added pressure from uncertainty in my full time employment. I am hoping to publish this, the final book in the series, on or around the 31st March, pending the production of the cover.

The Guardians Book 4; Imperial Assault

A brief update on the position of Imperial Assault

The release of Imperial Assault is getting closer, but I’m afraid it will still require a few more months work before it is ready. Due to personal and family responsibilities in 2013, starting work on the revision and editing of this volume was delayed until this year.

Books four and five, Wizard’s tempest, have had the least amount of work and were only the second drafts. As a result, I am finding many areas require complete re-writing to bring the story in line with changes made to books 1 through 3, to ensure continuity in character and plot development. It is slow but rewarding work as I see it taking shape, and I am now two thirds through the book.

Current forecast for publishing is the end of July.
