Hello KDT fans,

I have had many inquiries about the KDT series, so I thought I would update you all on my plans.

The main KDT series will be more than three books and will continue to follow Rezkin’s story. I also have plans for several side tales, which will be about some of the supporting characters. While at times it seems that the supporting characters are not very well developed, the story was intentionally written this way. The majority of the tale is written from Rezkin’s perspective. If Rezkin does not know the characters well, neither does the reader. The reader gets to know the other characters as Rezkin learns about them.  On occasion, however, the reader gets a little extra insight into the minds and activities of the other characters outside of Rezkin’s knowledge.  This is a bit of a reminder that the story is written in the third person, and the reader is occasionally privy to information not available to the main character (at my discretion, of course!). The side stories will give me the opportunity to share with you more about the supporting characters so that you can get to know them like I do without interrupting the flow of the KDT series.

On a side note, I actually started writing a different series prior to writing KDT. This other series is set in a different part of the same world but about 1,200 years prior to the events in KDT. Many of the historical references mentioned in KDT will actually tie in to the other series. When I was nearly finished with the first book in the other series, the idea for KDT popped into my mind, and I was sidetracked. I look forward to releasing the other series at some point in the future for you all to enjoy the greater world that spans thousands of years.

No, I do not have a release date for Book 3, yet. I am still writing it! I will keep you updated!

Thank you for visiting my world!

    I am in love with this book, you are such a good writer, not once did I skip any pages because I did not have to. This is what a fantasy should read like, I have been reading fantasy novels for many, many years and it has been a vey long time since I have enjoyed a book such as this, It has made me laugh out loud, it has made me comment out loud, I am totally into this, please keep up the good work and I will continue to have something to look forward to.

    Just a pick you up to say book three cannot come soon enough but to retain the quality of the first two I am willing to wait, fantasy and fiction is so hard to pull off but when it’s done correctly the rewards for me the reader are huge, the last books I read that achieved this was the Trysmoon series and KDT is as good, so thank you again for some very happy reading hours, Mike.

    Dear Kel:

    Just a quick note to say thank you. Why? Because your “Dark Tidings” series actually has a hero that embraces his unique skills and abilities. He doesn’t whine or cry about how the world was so unfair to him/her . . . Unlike most books lately that seem to have the Hero spending three-quarters of the tale struggling against his/her own nature/natural skills, until reluctantly they finally come to accept who they are and what they must do. (What a waste of time and effort.)

    What I like about your series is what I liked about the original Conan series growing-up. Conan The Barbarian never whined or cried about his harsh life growing-up. (It made him who he was!) He accepted what life dealt him, recognizing that it made him special, and used that uniqueness and then got on with what he could/wanted to do.

    In the same vain, what I like about your series is that the hero accepted his brutal upbringing at the castle, recognized the advantages that it has given him, and is making the most of those unique skills. He is not crying over his lost childhood, nor is he fighting his nature. He embraces it. He is extremely good at following each of the Rules/codes that he lives by, and this more than anything else, I believe, will allow him to accomplish great things!!!

    So thank you again for creating a hero who is not afraid to be a hero.

    Hi. I loved both of these books and look forward to more of this series. Also, I’m really interested in the other series. Hope it shows up in Amazon. Thanks for telling your stories.

    I find your books completely fantastic. As an avid reader of fantasy for 15years, your two books are dark, witty, fast passed and full of action. I relate your books and writing style as one of the three best I’ve ever read, along with dawn of wonder series and stingers tigers- chronicles of an imperial officer. I used to have the malazan series by Steven erikson, codex aleria by Jim butcher, demon cycle by Peter brett, the riyria chronicles by Michael Sullivan and the arinthian line as the best books I’ve read; however the three of you are by far a cut above them and that’s saying something. Please keep writing in depth and long books (nothing worse than a good book that take a few hours to read then done) as they are absolutely fantastic and I will read over and over again.

    Ps can’t wait for your next book seriously impatient lol

      Thank you for not only leaving awesome praise (so accurately describes how I feel about KDT as well), but for the mentions of some other series I can look into while I’m waiting for Rez #3. 😉
