Sufficiently Advanced Magic Available in Audio Book Format

Broken Mirrors

Hello everyone!

I’m proud to announce that Sufficiently Advanced Magic is finally available in audio format, narrated by the amazing Nick Podehl.

For those of you who are interested in status updates, here’s some new information!

  • The sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic is about 25% written, at about 50,000 words so far. That’s close to half the length of Forging Divinity, so it’s going to be another big one.
  • The third book of the War of Broken Mirrors series is also in progress, at about 15,000 words. This has been a tougher story for me to write, but I’m making gradual progress.
  • I also have some side projects in progress, such as a more “trapped in a MMORPG’ style novel and a Sufficiently Advanced Magic prequel from Keras Selyrian’s perspective.

I’ll be updating my mailing list shortly with some preview content, so if you’re on the mailing list, stay…

Some Quick Thoughts

Broken Mirrors

It’s been an interesting week.

Sufficiently Advanced Magic is easily my most successful book to date in terms of how rapidly it’s selling. I’m very proud of that.

It’s got some great reviews.

It’s also got some bad ones. That’s understandable, but a couple in particular have frustrated me – because they’re attacking the book for having a LGBT character.

I won’t apologize for that. Far from it, in fact. I wish I’d done more with it; I didn’t put in as much content on the subject as I wish I had. I should have explored it in more detail to make it feel more authentic and help the characters be more accessible to LGBT readers who might be interested.

I’ll try to learn from this experience and include more LGBT content in my future books. People of all genders and sexual orientations deserve positive representation.

New Book Release – Sufficiently Advanced Magic

I did some beta reading on this one, and it’s well worth reading. In Sufficiently Advanced Magic, Corin Cadence has lost his brother and become a disappointment to his father. But there might be a solution to both: climbing the holy Serpent’s Spire to beg a boon from the goddess. As Corin trains to prepare for the tower’s challenges, he finds new friends and allies… and perhaps new family, as well.

Hey all!

The book I’d previously referred to as Attuned is now out and has a new title – Sufficiently Advanced Magic.

It’s a reference to one of my favorite quotes – “Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

It’s a good title to invert in regards to this book, which has a lot of focus on researching magical technology.

Here’s the awesome cover by Daniel Kamarudin:

Tae Dominion Lore

I first became aware of the Tae Dominion while traveling with the famous hero, Lucas Nightbreaker. He had the strange ability to transfer the properties of one being to another—beyond the scope of a Life, Supremacy, or even Protection sorcerer. Though I have made a study of sorcery and the planes, I was unable to identify the means by which he used this odd talent.

Over the course of the next few years, I would come to know the unfamiliar power he used as one of the Fathomless Dominions, planes so far beyond the Deep Dominions that their use is not common even among the gods. Why this favored follower of Andarin should have a tie to one of these planes is a mystery I have yet to solve.

The existence of the Tae Dominion remained a fascinating but unimportant facet of scientific inquiry, in my mind, until Lucas and I returned to Aayara with the Dawnbringers. There I was greeted by my mentor, Darryl Craie, an inspired scholar and the future Hierophant of the Priesthood of Laos. Continue reading “Tae Dominion Lore”
