Lost for Words

Now that the Makkarios series has been made available on the iBooks platform, I have turned my attention to the same for the Last Book of the Kings series. Several years have passed since I last revisited the first volume of this series, The Keeper House Unending — the first of all my novels, in fact. Now that I’m looking at it again, I’ve discovered that I have a problem.

[So embarrassing!] It is terribly obvious that a seventeen-year-old wrote this. I can hardly read it without flinching. Or squirming. Or both, to be honest, though I’m not sure how that actually works in physiological terms. It is almost as bad as the time I rediscovered the spiral notebooks of my actual first novel, which will never see daylight unless in those few moments while I try to get the match to ignite against the matchbook cover. Those I wrote when I was fifteen and, though technically they qualify as plain teen fiction, are far more of a fantasy than any speculative fiction I’ve written since then.

So I find myself wondering the following: does this mean that I have grown as a writer? Or have I just grown as a critical reader? One can recognize literary rubbish without being able to write good stories, after all, just as a music lover can detect bad pitch without being able to sing a note. And so the natural contemplative’s eternal process of self-examination goes on…

But in the meanwhile, for those of you who have an active life outside that of the mind, I have begun an experiment in nonfiction. It is called the One Word Devotions series and will consist of brief “exegetical” devotions, intended to instruct as well as to give fodder for the meditative processes. You may find it here on Amazon; it will not be made available in ebook format, because that defeats the purpose of the book.

Soul’s Gate blurb

A new generation of the Keeper royal line is coming to adulthood. Unrest is growing once again in the Second Kingdom, now under the governance of the new Senate. Dakhar leads the Senate as a seer with bornsight, but the only other members so far gathered are Bredin, a genius healer who denies his powerful healing gift, and Magnis, a bard with the gift of heartsight crippled by constant conflict with his beyah, Valeryn’s elder daughter Seliyah. One more man in possession of a great gift has been discovered: a strange young man with the rare gift of dreamwalking has appeared in Dakhar’s dreams. No one knows where he lives, only that he is a prisoner in lands farther east than any Keeper maps have yet documented. Now his beyah has arrived in the Second Kingdom, looking for help in her search for the dreamwalker, and she turns out to be Dakhar’s illegitimate daughter.

If that were insufficient reason to for his journey, Dakhar also receives word from Valeryn and Lucien that the Pamirsi patriarch Liam secretly asks his help. Liam’s heir Rasmus disappeared twenty years previously after the death of his young wife. Part of the kingdom’s unrest is caused by the fact that Liam’s only other heirs are Lucien’s twin sons Xander and Xavier. If Rasmus could be found alive and persuaded to return as heir, Liam reasons, the moderate factions in his clan could regain control over the extremists.

For the peace of the kingdom and the strength of the Senate, then, Dakhar must assemble a company that must leave all known lands and venture into the ancient east. With no route but that provided by his own and his daughter Haidee’s instincts, Dakhar must seek these two missing men. Along the way, he and his company will face Umbrya dragons and strange immortals, subterranean paths and long-lost kingdoms of forgotten history. Their greatest danger is not so much that they will lose their way as that they might just lose their very selves.
