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 Many of the historical references mentioned in KDT will actually tie in to the other series.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 have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of your books so far from the kdt to the date of the fallen… I love them all, but I can’t wait to get the 5th kdt book in my audio bank because I have listened to the kdt series probably 10 times by now and have been getting gitty waiting for the next book to find out what is going to happen. You left my heart in my throat at the final book and I gotta know what’s going to happen. Much love from a huge fan keep up the good work and great world Creation.

    I can’t wait to read this new book but on princible alone I shall be patient, i will not be purchasing this book until i can finish what i have started with KDT (I think this princble is admirable enough to be one of Rezkin’s own rules and therefore adhered to )

      KDT is an ongoing series. There will be several more books in the man arc and a few side-tales. After years of writing in the KDT world, it’s been nice to take a vacation in another one. Please consider trying the new book while you wait for the next KDT. More will come 😁

    Hi kal’el of story telling or rather Kel

    You have just created a character that I have fallen in love with !
    Funny story – I started seeing myself behave as rezkin in real life and had the same persona

    I seriously need you to drink lots of coffee scof down whatever energy supplements you need and bestow upon Us boom 3

    Let’s say this is urgent !
    Thanks Kel’el

    Big fan of Dark Tidings. I listened to both book 1 &2 audio books within a week.
    It made me laugh and really cheer on Rezkin.
    Awaiting your next book with earnest.

    Kel – I rarely comment on books but this one was just too amazing for me to pass up. I’m a voracious reader of all things medieval/fantasy based and of the dozens and dozens of books I’ve read this series is definitely at the top of the pile. Your writing style is perfect for me and truly masterful. I absolutely can’t wait for the rest of the series and any future spin offs. Side note, I listened to this on Audible instead of reading and the narrator was phenomenal as well!
