An orphaned boy, uncontrollable magic, and a destiny to recover a nation’s honor.

For sixteen-year-old Ren, life was a brutal slog in the orphanage. His only aspiration was to become a sorcerer.

But with no family connections, he had no chance…

Until, a freak magical accident drew the attention of international authorities.

Will Ren evade the authorities, and take his one chance to pass the ritual required to join the Amethyst sorcerers?

Or will his low birth doom him and the world?_______________________

Orphan’s Price is the first book in the Chronicles of the Seventh Realm, an epic fantasy series comprised of episodic short reads. Ren may be the “chosen one”, but Chronicles of the Seventh Realm is a sprawling series of characters with many tales to explore. This is the first book of Ren’s Tale.


I’ve started a daily exercise regimen. So far it involves me walking for thirty minutes plus, at a brisk pace. Hopefully I’ll add in light weight lifting next month. Slow and steady. I’m not trying to win any competitions, or run a marathon, but I’d like to lose another 10 pounds, and regain the flexibility from my youth. I’m not old, but I’m also not as young as I once was. Age is starting to show on my face, and I feel it in my bones on cold, rainy days.

As to the question of this email. I’m a huge digital reader. I buy hardbacks as collector items, but I prefer to read digital books. Especially when I read on my phone. The smaller page size allows me to read faster than a print page, and with modern technology I can use text-to-speech software. In effect turning any digital book into an audio book. This means I can keep reading while I’m driving, or walking around the park. No longer do I have to fit my reading time into my day. Reading time is all the time. 

What about you? Do you prefer to read a digital or physical book? Paper or ones and zeros? Comment Below.

Can I ask a small favor? Please take a minute to review Orphan’s Price. As an independent author, reviews are the backbone of my business. Without them new readers won’t find my works of fiction. If I can’t sell my books to new readers, I’ll not be able to continue writing this story in a timely manner. If you’d like to see more of Ren take a minute and review Orphan’s Price.
