Greetings!

I hope everyone is doing well. Summer is in full swing here at the Peel house – the air is hot and muggy and everyone is outside swimming while I am sitting in front of a computer screen. This isn’t a complaint, it’s just a simple fact of life (okay… maybe it is a little bit of a complaint).

Ranger’s Oath officially launched fifteen days ago, giving me a good start to my author career. It has been met with mostly positive reviews, and I’ve even managed to sell a handful of copies (yay me!). The first step we take is often the most important one, especially on such a long and ambitious journey, and I consider this the first major milestone. With persistence, hard work, and perhaps a little bit of luck, I hope to make a full-time living off my writing, enough to support me and my family.

Bringers of Doom, book 2 of the Arc of Radiance series, is now up for preorder on Amazon. Check it out here!

I’m still hard at work on book 5. Hopefully, I will have it done by next month. I am also hard at work outlining a two book series called Tears of Eternity, as well as a much larger series that I’m not quite ready to reveal yet. For now, I’ll just say that it is a much larger project than I have ever worked on before, and will likely be more than ten books long (80-100k words, epic fantasy).

In my personal life…

I’ve been enjoying spending time with my family. My two year old and I love wrestling each other, and my wife is due to have another little boy here in a couple of weeks. Exciting stuff, but also pretty stressful. We’ve mainly been trying to prepare ourself for the arrival of the new little tyrant… erm, baby.

In my (limited) free time, I managed to beat The Witcher 2 and have now moved on to The Witcher 3. This is a much larger game, and will probably take me the better part of the summer to complete. However, the story is excellent, and it gives me plenty of inspiration when working on my own fantasy worlds.

I’m almost done reading the second in Daniel Ford’s Paladin Trilogy, and am currently looking for a new series to dive into. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

Other than that, not much more to report. The life of an entrepreneur can be exhausting, but it is definitely rewarding. When people read my work, it fills me with immense satisfaction. It is one of the best feelings I have ever experienced in my adult life.

Thank you for reading and for your continued support. You folks mean the world to me!!

Until next month,

-Blake
