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 Many of the historical references mentioned in KDT will actually tie in to the other series.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!

    Really so we are gonna wait ten years for book 5 KTD. Games of thrones did this to me. HBO had to take over. It drives us crazy I think after a few years fans deserve a book. Especially one that got so popular so wuik. It gave you time for your other series. Now give us book 5 by new year or Rezkins is dead to me forever. Your other books too.

    I’m desperate over here. I’ve listened to every book at least 4 times trying to figure out where this is going. It’s been years now, andI’m worried this is good to be another Song of Ice and Fire, or The name of the wind situation. Please release book 5, or just put us out our misery and say your done with the story.

    Please please come out with book 5 for KDT! I just spent all the money buying the previous 4. Now I feel like it’s sort of a waste

    I have enjoyed all your books and have read them all twice. I especially like that the ideals of chivalry are introduced and experienced in the life’s of your characters.
    Look forwArd to book 5 of KDT.
    Many thanks for your gift of writing.

    Hey kel, first off I love the KDT series as a whole but I’m hesitant to read the 4th book simply because of Frisha. Lol I want to like her but she is so naive and inconsiderate of rezkins upbringing its infuriating. Also read a spoiler about Frisha from book 4 so now I’m just sad I probably can’t start book 4. ( you probably know what I’m talking about 😛 ) I’m more of the “i hope the guy gets the girl type of optimist” so the spoiler ruined my desire to continue the series haha. 😛 phenomenal series otherwise thank you 🙂
