This week’s Notable and Quotable from the Bloodlines Reforged Saga.
Before we get to the Notable & Quotable, we have some exciting news. After a few requests, we have set up a means on our website, http://www.bloodlinesreforged.com, so that fans can purchase a personalized autographed paperback with Paypal or any major credit card. The personalized books are $30 each, come with an 8×10 map of Stratvs, and the shipping is free. They are only available in the U.S.
This week’s Notable and Quotable is a sneak-peak into Stalking Shadows, Book IV of the Lords of Order & Chaos Series. We have a rough estimation that it will be hitting Amazon within the next few months.
Thus, she turned her body and mind to her Dance, the Dance of the Ussa, the Dance of the Disputed Isles. She’d found that her speed, strength, and agility had increased dramatically as a result of her ascension. Yet, her focus and force of will seemed to constantly rage on the edge of chaos. Her body ached at the temptation to execute her katas with harsh velocity. Still, she forced her mind to focus on each movement in a painstakingly slow glide, performing the choreography of the fighting style with intentional grace. It was, after all, the Dance that imbued her with the capacity for such intense concentration. The intense concentration that so aided her in her escape from the Blue Tower so many years before.
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!
We are experiencing a significant delay with ACX in regard to the final approval of the Heirs of Vanity audiobook. So, please be patient with us as we work to get that out in the coming weeks.
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!

I need to tell you about A Threat from the Past, by Paul Cude. Here’s what one editorial review had to say;
• Creative and imaginative…this one is a winner! This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a spellbinding journey! I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Paul Cude in the future. I would definitely commend this book. Five stars from me.
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.
So, Christmas came early to the Hanson household! My wife surprised me earlier this week with a new addition to our home. This is Pinker. She’s a Great Dane rescue. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Great Dane puppies, they are about like having a one hundred pound toddler in the house.
It would seem that someone has a fondness for taking my spot. (for a frame of reference, my wife, Michelle, is six feet tall and Pinker is only six months old)
