The manuscript to Grimoire of Darkness is completed! I am now working on the back information of the book as well as the preview to the next book in the Metaverse saga, Order of the Blue Moon (Moontripper #2). This book stems off right from the Epilogue of Grimoire of Darkness (the Phoenix Hunter #3).
At the same time I am working on the completion of the cover to GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS.
GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS is scheduled for release Feb 16, 2018.
DESTINY PHOENIX is the only title character to headline three books in her own series. the Phoenix Hunter, the Phoenix Hunter: Rogue Wolf, and the Phoenix Hunter: Grimoire of Darkness.
Destiny is a sixteen year old girl who learns of a secret on her 16th birthday which leads into her first adventure as the newest Phoenix Hunter, a Nephilim hunter with special abilities collectively of the 12 Nephilim families. There is only one Phoenix Hunter in a generation, usually granted with extraordinary healing powers. However, those were passed onto Destiny's twin sister, Faith (Sandy Carpenter), who was sent to live with and adopted by the Carpenters
Destiny comes from a long line of female Nephilim who have become Phoenix Hunters. These previous Phoenix Hunters who have not ascended to Seraphim status are her spiritual guides. So far in the books there have been only three spiritual guides who have helped her. Olivia Firebrand, a former pirate on the high sees; Elizabeth Fyre, from the Colonial America; and Heather Callum (not named), her maternal grandmother who passed before she was born.
These spirit guides not only help her as she fights, but also tell her about people she meets. They part wisdom onto Destiny.
Destiny is, also, joined by her family and family-to-be. Her brother, BRANDON PHOENIX; Twin sister, (FAITH) SANDY CARPENTER, her fiancee, CHRIS CARPENTER; Brandon's girlfriend, ROXANNE SORENSEN; and the youngest Carpenter, MICHELLE CARPENTER.
She fights along side her family as they search out Roxanne's missing brothers, OLIVER and THOMAS PRINCE. Their search for Oliver and Thomas lead them to places they do not expect to go to. The search is still on as the trail heats up and cools off over time.
Join her adventures in the Phoenix Hunter series by METAVERSE PRESS.
The covers to the books in each of the series will have a slightly different look than before... Not much of a difference really. Just a more cohesive look to go with each of the series as I move them onto one KDP. I will update the looks to the books and the forthcoming books such as GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS and ORDER OF THE BLUE MOON.
You will notice a more prominent series title presence on the first and subsequent books in each series from METAVERSE PRESS. Each book in each series combines for an overall story of the METAVERSE. Characters will go into outerspace, travel through telwpostation to other realms, and more...
With GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS already being written, I am starting to get the feel for the next book in the METAVERSE, ORDER OF THE BLUE MOON. The ORDER OF THE BLUE MOON is already starting to take some shape as I get into the middle of GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS.
I have never gotten to these books in the past as I have worked on these various series. But I think they are coming along great. I cannot wait to continue these series through and through.
Sorry about the lapses in time between the previous post and this.
I am trying to get on a semblance of a normal schedule with my posts, but life has a way of making things harder than expected.
Part Five of the METAVERSE, Mind Games, arrives the Friday, October 20th.
As all formats of Mind Games are completed, I have shifted my focus onto the next part of the METAVERSE, Grimoire of Darkness: the Phoenix Hunter III.
The original version of this story that I started many years ago and halted because I had trouble writing it was called the Mystic Tome. Now I am rolling with the story. The first two chapters of the story are in the back of Mind Games. With Grimoire of Darkness, there is time to complete this book. It is not due out til February 18, 2018.
Here is Chapter 1 below:
Started the typing process to the beginning of the sixth installment of the METAVERSE.
The sixth installment of the METAVERSE is the third book of the Phoenix Hunter, which is Grimoire of Darkness.
Grimoire of Darkness will, also, be translated into foreign languages as well.
Also, the METAVERSE has 31 books on the schedule thus far. Other books are in the process of being worked upon. But the schedule is just tentative until the books are written and published. I will adjust the schedule as I see fit. I have adjusted to fit the story of The Games Begin into the overall story of the Mind Games series.
Some characters will transverse over into other series. There are plans for Destiny to show up in the Arcanum series. Michel LeBeouf will show up in a very important roll in Order of the Blue Moon. the Phoenix Hunter has crossed over with the other series of the METAVERSE.
Harmony will have its own series and does not connect to the METAVERSE.
Odyssey*Star will arrive in it own time. It may not be the same saga as before. I am still contemplating what Odyssey * Star will entail when it comes back. It may or may not come in contact with the METAVERSE. I doubt it will.
METAVERSE PRESS will keep the book series in its run that is already there. But METAVERSE starting in 2018 will likely cut down to publishing four books a year so that October can be other projects I am writing. METAVERSE will publish in Feb, Apr, June, and August. Each current series will have a specific month to publish in.
Stay tuned for more updates...
Three books are in progress at this point...
I am in the midst of typing MIND GAMES for its release on October 20th. The book is on pre-order at your favorite online bookstore.
GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS: THE PHOENIX HUNTER III is being written by hand at the moment. I find writing this way to be somewhat easier than staring at a blank screen all the time. It will release next year on Feb 21st tentatively.
HARMONY, not a part of the METAVERSE and in a separate line of stories all together, arrives late next year. It will be
MIND GAMES #1 is the fifth entry into the METAVERSE.
I have just completed the initial handwritten draft of the book.
This initial draft is a rewrite of an earlier version I wrote years ago and could not find.
I have planned a trilogy for the character of Kayla Sanders in her own standalone title, but that may not be enough to garner her whole story.
As I continue to write the books of the METAVERSE several things are coming about: the complexity of the characters and their supporting casts, the complexity of the stories and what has yet to be told, the want of these characters to go onto greater things, and the endless stories that could be told.
However, right now I am concentrating on writing the next book as I write these stories one at a time. Ideas are just abound right now. I am even working on a book I have had trouble with in the past GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS: THE PHOENIX HUNTER III.
Right now you can pre-order MIND GAMES #1 from your favorite online bookstores at books2read.com/MV5MG

Tuesdays: Teasers (First Tuesday every month)
Wednesdays: Writing Tips
