Even the aristocratic are tortured …

"It would be ever so easy to ring for it and simply solve the conundrum once and for all. Indecision is the domain of cowards and fools, of which I am neither. Carson favors me--he always has--and would go out of his way to see that any potential crisis might be averted in my regard. No one would have to know that I have access to an endless supply, a wealth of the alluring stuff at my very fingertips. It could be our little secret, Carson's and mine. He would never give me away. Betrayal is an impulse foreign to the spiritual fabric of such a steadfast soul, to the unshakeable constitutions of all truly redoubtable men. With such assurance having been vouchsafed against the howling tempest of my uncertainty, I can scarcely believe I even agonize over the matter. Indeed, I am the one who wields the most daunting and formidable power in this house. Even the most shocking transgressions are mine to explore, freely and without fear of reprisal. The only remaining question centers upon whether I 'feel like a nut' or whether this might be categorized as one of those times in which I don't. Oh, God, the answer I have been seeking with all the ardor of my intellect has become abundantly clear at last. It's Almond Joy or nothing."

Betrayal is an impulse foreign to the spiritual fabric of such a steadfast soul, to the unshakeable constitutions of all genuinely redoubtable men–if we are being truthful with ourselves. Such assurance having thus been vouchsafed against the howling tempest of my uncertainty, I can scarcely believe I agonize over the matter, even for the briefest instant. Verily, I am the one who wields the most daunting and formidable power in this house. The most shocking transgressions are mine to explore, freely and without fear of reprisal or judgment. The only remaining question centers upon whether I ‘feel like a nut’ or whether this might indeed be categorized as one of those times in which I don’t. Oh, God, the answer I have been seeking with all the ardor of my intellect has become abundantly clear at last–an unmistakable epiphany is mine. It’s Almond Joy or nothing!”

Escape the Imminent Collapse of Civilization, if only for a few hours. A sweeping modern fairy-tale is born with the Rowan Blaize series of books. Click on the book covers to the right or have a look below …

Watch the Rowan Blaize Book Trailer HERE.

Book One = The magical cornerstone – a lavishly illustrated epic narrative poem … a genuine “spell” for the young and young-at-heart to treasure for a lifetime, telling the story of sorcerer Rowan Blaize’s battle to regain his magic powers. (Think Beowulf-meets-Dr.Seuss or an epic story-in-verse of a scope similar to Tolkien’s soon-to-be-released The Fall of Arthur, only contemporary.)

Book Two = The rip-roaring novel that continues the adventures of Rowan Blaize and introduces the three hilarious witches of the Ancient City, along with its dysfunctional werewolves, wraiths, ghosts, vampires, dryads, banshees and a beauty pageant brat that just might destroy the world.

Book Three = The next novel that finds Rowan trapped by a spell in another world, caught between a faery-squashing sorceress who’ll stop at nothing to conquer the kingdom … and a feisty teenage prince who’s determined to get it back.
