Just a quick update: Stone Chronicles Book 5, CORE OF STONE, is coming in a little more than a week! It follows directly after the events in THE SOURCE, and presents Dr. Stone with the sort of problem he’s never had to deal with before. Here’s the blurb (spoilers if you haven’t read THE SOURCE):
Alastair Stone knew it would take a big sacrifice to end the Evil’s hold over our world. He was ready to make that sacrifice—but he expected it to be his life.
Never in his worst nightmares did he think it would be his magic.
Despairing and grief-stricken at the loss of the abilities that defined his existence, he’s ready to surrender to his self-destructive urges when a dear friend convinces him to take a desperate last chance. He heads to Las Vegas to find the only man who might be able to help him, but instead finds some old allies in dire need of his own help with a deadly—and very magical—threat.
Stone’s answer to nearly every problem has always been magic—but that’s off the table now. All he’s got are his wits and his courage to keep himself and his friends alive. Can he put aside his pride and bitterness long enough to prove there’s more to him than magic?
I’m really excited about this one, and I hope readers will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
