In the Shadow of the Black Sun: The Complete Trilogy now available everywhere!

So here it is, my friends. All 3 books of the trilogy have been collected into 1 ebook and now include illustrations by yours truly. The fully painted covers are included at the beginning of each individual book. This has truly been a labor of love for me and it feels very satisfying to have finished the story (so far). Readers have already asked if the story would continue. It's always possible, however right now I'll be taking a break from the fantasy genre. I am finishing a horror novel at the moment. It's very close to complete, then we'll see what bubbles up from my mind. I've always had more ideas than I knew what to do with.

To download the complete trilogy for the Kindle, click here: In the Shadow of the Black Sun: The Complete Trilogy at Amazon US.

Amazon UK readers click here: In the Shadow of the Black Sun: The Complete Trilogy at Amazon UK.

Also available through Smashwords in all other formats: In the Shadow of the Black Sun: The Complete Trilogy at Smashwords.

I want to thank you all very much for your support as always. For now I return to Elfwhere and scribble notes for future tales.

Walk with the Wind,

Mournenhile book now live at Amazon!
Now available at 

         The bitter cold of Mournenhile's power has gripped the land, his horrific armies sweeping into the west, intent on destroying all who oppose him. His most deadly creations, his twin children born of a mortal woman, lead his armies against the servants of the Wind. Malhain now has command of S'Darin's ghost and his immense power. If he can reunite the broken pieces of the mage's staff, none will be able to stand against him.
        Windenn has returned, changed and all-powerful, also coveting this sacred artifact, her twisted mind set on destroying Mournenhile. Hagan and his companions reluctantly assist her in her quest of destruction, realizing quickly that bringing an end to one devil only replaces him with another.
        Elfwhere is in ashes and the Dwarven kingdom of Pahn Pirik is locked in a civil war brought on by the death of their Queen. With the help of the Addrefae, Vasparian once again leaves his homeland in the hopes of stopping the eastern army.
        When a young and foolish prince takes it upon himself to wrest Harquinn from Malhain's control, a chain of events will be set in motion, bringing Men, Elves and even Dwarves into a climactic battle that will change the state of the world of Kirkaldin forever.

Still more step by step on the Mournenhile cover

 Gorin's hand and tattoos complete. Face adjusted.
 First attempt at a background. Wasn't quite happy with it. Not enough depth, I thought. Start over.
 Ah, this gives more of a snowy feeling. More depth. It actually looks as if you could walk off into this environment.
Mostly complete now. Added the staff and the glowing light that comes from it reflected on the characters. Added a trail in the snow behind them.

More step by step on the Mournenhile cover

 Here I've thrown in some color for the cloak and a slight indication of her pants.
 Shirt, belt and sword detail going in.
 Nearly there with Windenn. A lot more work on the costuming.
 And she's pretty much complete.
 Where Gorin's face started.
Most of Gorin's anatomy complete and details on his belt, etc.

A look into the cover-painting process....

I'm working on a possible cover for the final book of my In the Shadow of the Black Sun trilogy. Using several photos as reference and painting it digitally with Photoshop. This is Windenn in one of the final scenes of the story.
