The Long-Awaited Sequel and Other Releases

I finally have great news for all those who have waited so very long to hear about the sequel to The Forgotten Warrior. 

For many years, my publisher tried to find a way to offer the book to my faithful readers, but obstacles kept getting in the way. Finally, they returned the rights of the novel to me. Not only that, but they kindly gave me the non-exclusive rights to The Forgotten Warrior and The Stone Traveler. All I have to do is re-title those books and make new covers. 

This makes it possible for me to epublish the books. I can offer them to you as ebooks and also—this is very important—as print-on-demand books. 

So, if you want an actual book, you can order it. Yeah!!! 

Because of this new development, I’ve decided to put all my time-travel novels in a series called Time Stone Chronicles. The new title for The Forgotten Warrior is Reluctant Warrior. 

For a limited time Reluctant Warrior is free to members of Kindle Unlimited. Yes, FREE.  Here's the cover and back-cover blurb for Reluctant Warrior.

Sydney Morgan, a sixteen-year-old girl with a black belt in karate, thinks her world has fallen apart. A close friend offends her, her mother is diagnosed with cancer, and her father—who abandoned them years ago—comes back into her life. Just when Syd thinks this nightmare will never end, a time stone takes her to Captain Helaman and his stripling warriors of the Book of Mormon. But Helaman takes the time stone, calls her a spy, and has Tarik—his second-in-command—throw her in the stockade. 

Tarik learns Syd is a time-traveling girl with fighting skills he’s never seen before and falls in love with her. Syd desperately wants to return home to be with her dying mother. Tarik has two choices: tell Helaman Syd’s true gender and risk losing her when she’s sent home, or not tell Helaman so Syd can train him and his warrior brothers. 

The choice is impossible. If Syd stays she could die in the war. If she leaves, the Lamanites could win. The battles are heating up. Tarik must choose.


 NOW for the sequel.

Drum roll, please . . .

Thank you, William--my grandson

Yes, here is the long-awaited sequel to Reluctant Warrior (previously published as The Forgotten Warrior). Right now it is FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

After traveling back in time and barely surviving the Battle for Cumeni, sixteen-year-old karate expert, Sydney Morgan, is desperate to find Tarik, the stripling warrior she loves. Even when they are finally reunited, their trials have just begun. Syd is determined to learn from the spirit all that she needs to so she can go home. She helps Helaman and the stripling warriors reclaim the city of Manti from the Lamanites. Now, Helaman needs reinforcements. He sends Tarik and Syd on a dangerous mission with Ozi, an elderly warrior, as their guide. They must find Captain Moroni and ask for more troops. On their journey, Tarik is injured and returns to Manti. Syd and Ozi continue on without him. 

 As Tarik recuperates, a voice beseeches him to “go to her.” Believing Syd is in danger, he sets out to find her. 

Will Syd and Ozi find Captain Moroni? 

Will Tarik and Syd be together again? 

Will Syd ever return to her family and home?


 Because it took so very long to get these books to you, I’ve written a little booklet, Ten Stripling Warrior Character Traits to Apply to Your Life.  

This forty-three-page booklet gives a brief history of the stripling warriors and ten of the character traits I believe the stripling warriors had (I'm sure they had many more, but these are the ten I focused on). And it’s told from the viewpoint of Sydney Morgan, one of the main characters in Reluctant Warrior and Stripling Warrior. For a limited time, this booklet is also FREE to Kindle Unlimited members.

Coming this summer, I will add another book to the Time Stone Chronicles series and re-release The Stone Traveler under a different title. The novel is in the process of being revamped. As soon as I have the new title and cover, plus, the date for the release, I’ll let you know. 

And coming in October, I will have a brand new novel to add to the Time Stone Chronicles collection titled Chasing the Star. It’s about a brother and sister who are sent back in time. The sister goes to a Roman soldier while her brother goes to a shepherd family. And in case you were wondering, yes, it’s about Christmas.
