Coming Soon – The Lore Valley
It’s time to announce a new story coming to the4threalm.com, and it’s one that a few of you might already know about. Many years ago, when I first tried my hand at writing, the first story I ever wrote was a fantasy yarn called Tales of the Lore Valley. I wrote two and a half books in this series before deciding that my writing skills weren’t quite what they needed to be, and decided to refine those skills on other projects first. I worked on all manner of manuscripts, short stories and screenplays in the meantime, and now that I have this site up, and we’re on the lookout for more content, I think it’s time to finally revisit this project.
Initially, I’ll be re-posting chapters from the first two books and the almost completed third. Those books were self-published back in 2004 and 2005, and are still available on places like amazon.com, but these chapters will be slightly different. I’ll be changing them up a bit, re-polishing them, and basically using this opportunity to apply everything I’ve learned in the meantime to make this a better story. So this will be the New & Improved! version of these books.
After I re-post the first three books, I’ll start slowly but surely working on the remaining books in the series, of which there are a LOT. Fortunately, each one is small. I intended to make them pulpy, so I could release everything in small chunks. And I’ll continue along those lines. I’ll also explain more about the world and its characters as time goes by. In the meantime, look for Book 1, The Wind Riders, to show up starting in late April and appearing chapter by chapter until early June. Book 2, The Montsernan Agreement, will probably go up either at the end of this year, or early in 2012 depending on the publishing schedule for our other works.
