To my intrepid readers...

The story you were looking for is no longer on this website. Why, you ask?

You'll be pleased to know that ITARA: LIGHTBORN --now known as ITARA: SON OF C'RESETH The first of the "Itara Trilogy" -- has been picked up for publication by Black Rose Writing! ^_^

It can be ordered from your local booksellers (as it's up on , Borders, B. Dalton, and B&N) or directly from .com

For awesome info on the story, see my homesite at . :) It's where all the good stuff is, i.e. map, artwork, news, a link to a trailer, ect.


I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking time out of your lives to read my Lifelong work.

All the feedback you have given, and the hours spent reading chapter by chapter is an honor to me, and I thank you.

Black Rose has given me the opportunity to get my work--my baby-- out into the world. Because I've signed a contract, I must remove my novel from this site. As such, book 2 of the trilogy has been removed as well. For those who are in the midst of reading it, I am truly sorry. You may email me and ask questions, but I cannot have the actual manuscript online--even if it is as rough as a sack of pine cones.

Again, to all of my readers, please accept the gift of my humble gratitude. You have helped to keep my characters alive through the hard times where I didn't have the strength to pick up a pen.

Kel ashon.
