The Fireborn (Coming Soon)


It was late August, 2013.  I had been locked in my little office for hours hunched in front of a PC.  I stopped typing, cocked my head and looked at the screen confusedly.  I put my hands back on the keyboard and with slow deliberation typed seven characters, including the space.  Seven!  Is there a better number?  For seven is the number of the young light, at least so I heard.  What I wrote was “The End”.  The End!  Yes, I had finished the first draft of my book, “The Fireborn”!

So, what is the “The Fireborn”?  Listen:

In the shadowy area where myth and history collide, an unlikely hero is forced to save the world from an ancient Celtic curse. Dr. Elliot Everett-Jones knows that shadowy area well, having spent most of his life exploring its dimensions as given by a host of unreliable sources and imaginative speculation. His detractors, of course, would say he daydreams over the improbable plots of second-rate romantic authors and absinthe addicts. These fantasies, however, come to life after the discovery of the Cauldron of the Dead.

In my 77,000 word urban fantasy, “The Fireborn”, Elliot is forced to confront an army of the mythic undead with nothing but his obscure knowledge and the hope of finding an heir to Arthur’s sword. Even more frightening is the idea that he might have to confront his ex-wife, Eleanor.

“The Fireborn” is part joyful romp through history, myth and legend, and part fast paced adventure set in modern England and New York. The whole book, though, revolves around Elliot’s relationships with a large variety of characters. These relationships form the key that may unlock the mystery or lead to utter defeat.

Since that fateful August day I have finished four more drafts.  At this time the book has not been published so I’m not trying to get you to buy it.

Since I started the blog I have had a few posts about “The Fireborn””

It was also mention a few other times including “A Draft From the Past” and “If We Were Having Coffee, the Blogiversary Edition“.

    Good evening, Trent. I was just reading some points on your book. I think it sounds interesting. I like fantasy, and you can’t go wrong with naked blue men (although I appreciated the history info). I noted a typo in the third bullet that says thinG instead of thinK. You’re an interesting man, so your writing is interesting. Fun bunny trail. : )

      Thanks, I’ll have to go back and take a look at the typo. Actually, I have written another book since then (again along the lines of urban fantasy) and may end up just doing this one, The Fireborn, as a self-published book. And thanks again – I do have a lot of interests and so am involved in a lot of things!
