Notable & Quotable

I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well. This week’s Notable & Quotable, comes from Roland’s Triumph, Book III of the Heirs of Vanity Series. 
“Father is a Silver Helm?” Roland asked.  His mind had been so hung up on this bit of information he had missed much of the conversation.  He knew there was a good deal about Velryk he had yet to learn, but this he had not even guessed.
“Yes,” Brutis said.  “I’m a bit surprised you didn’t know that.  Surely in his raising of you he trained you in their ways.”
“He trained us,” Roland said gesturing to El’ and himself.  “But we didn’t know.”
“Then you knew Kyhn as well?”  Sir Eldryn asked, changing the subject.  He enjoyed hearing of tales of his father and his friends.  However, those stories should be shared near a hearth with a drink in hand, not on the road to a battle.
“Yes, he was a fellow student at one time.”
“Then you know that we will also likely meet him,” Eldryn said.
“Yes, I am sure of that,” Sir Brutis said.  “Remember this, he is only a man.  He bleeds like any other.”
“Forgive me Sir Brutis,” Roland said, clearly not taking the cue from Eldryn to move on to a more practical conversation.  “Did you say my father and his brother?  I would like to hear more of my uncle, Jonas.  I have never met him.”
“Yes,” Brutis replied lowering his face a bit and looking off into the distance.  “It is a shame about him.  We missed him on the front as well.”

As to life here in our little corner of the world, we are all doing well. I haven’t been writing this week as I’ve been working on the project pictured below.  But, by the time you’re reading this, I should be finished and back to writing again.

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!’
