. . . how about . . . NOW!
First, this isn't the next novel in the Spellmonger series -- Knights Magi will take a bit to write, though not near as long as Magelord.
This is the very first Spellmonger Anthology: The Road To Sevendor. Those who put off buying the three shorts that bridged the gap (or filled in some details) between Warmage and Magelord can find all three of them anthologized in one place.
But that's not all . . . also included in this volume are FOUR previously-unpublished shorts set in the Spellmonger universe of Callidore.
"The Wizard of Birchroot Bridge" in which Rondal gets tasked to build a bridge . . . whether it wants to get built or not.
"The Secret of Westwood Hall", in which the Hawkmaid moves up to the big castle and Minalan learns some of the secret history of Sevendor.
"The Road To Sevendor", in which a woman who evolves a very nasty magical talent seeks out the Spellmonger Sevendor to help her with her curse.
and "The Iron Band", in which a group of rugged warriors is given the impossible task to venture into the Penumbra and establish the headquarters for the new Royal militant order . . . if the goblins will let them.
Combined, the stories total more than 100,000 words. While they aren't essential for reading the novel series, every now and then an important plot point gets made.
So check out The Road To Sevendor: A Spellmonger Anthology, and get a little dessert after the massive meal of Magelord!
(And it's cheap at $2.99 -- where it will stay)
