Notable & Quotable

This week’s Notable and Quotable from the Bloodlines Reforged Saga.        
We’re coming to you a day early this week because we have a book signing tomorrow, 10/03/2020, at the Bowie Public Library (10am-2pm) and I doubt I’ll have the time to work in the newsletter as well.  So, without further delay…this week’s Notable and Quotable comes from Fires that Forge, Book I in the Lords of Order and Chaos Series.
“Forgive me, Lady,” Dunewell said.  “I didn’t notice you there.”
She was sitting on a marble bench in a small garden spot to the side of the path that led to the magnificent entry of House Theald.  Her blonde hair tumbled over her neck to the fur-lined cloak that wrapped her.  She quirked a smile at Dunewell.  He felt it pierce his breast as surely as a lance.
He had never been given to such frivolities.  He had never deigned to look along a young lady’s neckline.  Dunewell wondered where these thoughts, these impulses were coming from.
“Do you think it will snow soon?” she asked turning her eyes, such heavenly orbs, back to the hedges that surrounded the small garden.  “I hope so.  The snow makes the hedge so much more beautiful and has a way of softening the stone walls and iron gates of Moras.”          

I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well.

If you’re looking for a starter into the Bloodlines Reforged Saga, Fires that Forge and/or Roland’s Path are the starting blocks.  The complete first trilogies of both are available on Amazon and can be found here; Heirs of Vanity and Lords of Order & Chaos.  We have at least two more series planned (Orphan’s Blade and Templar’s Rebellion) that will go into the over all Saga.  Each series is set up to stand alone, but you will find a deeper understanding of all the characters involved if you read all the series.  Please consider leaving us a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Thanks!

Keep an eye out for the announcement of a winner in the audiobook giveaway of Heirs of Vanity, the boxset of Roland’s Path, Roland’s Vow, and Roland’s Triumph!

You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here;  You can also find a few spoilers such as the lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on.

I need to tell you about a Fantasy tale from Sherif Guirguis and Isaac Michaan called The Green Boy, Book I of the Chronicles of Aglartha.  The fate of two worlds rests on the shoulders of a few unsuspecting souls, and it all begins with the journey of a boy who wants to find the truth behind his own existence.

The fantasy tales giveaway this week promises death to a few characters. Reader be warned.

On the home front, we’re going to begin creating a few videos of me reading segments of Roland’s Path and Fires that Forge which can be found on our Facebook page here; Facebook Bloodlines.  We just added a new page to our website where those videos will be showcased. 

Here’s hoping you’re all surviving the Big Q and adjusting to the huge changes we’re all facing right now. 

This week we returned to the Citadel in our SpaceMaster campaign. We counted the session a success in that there were no player-character deaths (other than those sanctioned).  We also managed to thwart a bombing plot while at the same time stealing the terrorists’ bankroll and weapons.

Also, I wasted WAY too much time fooling around on HeroForge’s new website checking out their new characters and designs.  I made these mockups of ‘Roland.’  What do you guys think? Of course, this isn’t the Roland you know… not yet.  Which do you like better?

Let me know how you’re doing.  Feel free to drop me a line at with word of how you’re doing, questions about our tales, or comments about the story or the world of Stratvs.  If you enjoy our brand of ‘humor’ or just want more frequent updates, you can follow us on Facebook here; Roland’s Quest!

Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
Check us out on Amazon
