I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well. This week’s Notable & Quotable, comes from Stalking Shadows (Book IV in the Lords of Order & Chaos Series) which will hopefully be ready for publication by the first of 2022.
“I said, it’s getting late,” Jonas said from behind Dunewell.
Dunewell turned to see the Lanceilier standing behind him with his hands on his hips. It was clear Dunewell had been so deep in thought, in conversation, that he missed Jonas’s first call.
“Are you implying that my bedtime approaches?” Dunewell asked.
“I’m saying it’s getting late. We should arrive near the outer shipping lanes tomorrow. Given our markings, I doubt any pirates will try us, but it would be best to be well-rested just the same.”

You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here; www.bloodlinesreforged.com. You can also find a few spoilers such as the lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on.
As to life here in our little corner of the world, we are all doing well.
The welding trailer (after much ado) is finally finished and writing has begun again on Stalking Shadows.
As to our gaming life, things have been wild! We are currently in a ‘Weird West’ campaign in which our ‘western characters’ (I am a former U.S. Cavalry Officer turned Pinkerton and we have an Apache scout, a quick draw artist, and an Irish pugilist) have discovered that demons have been summoned to earth by the vestiges of the early Ku Klux Klan. We are attempting to put down the Klan and dispatch the demon lords by use of the bow, knife, Colt Peacemaker, Henry rifle, and an 1841 Six Pounder cannon (which does incredible damage as you may have guessed).
Let me know how you’re doing.

Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
