Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE BEST ORDER TO READ THE BOOKS OF THE CHRONICLES OF LORREK:
Books 1-9, as that is the order in which they were written. You can read the chronologically, but it will be a different experience.
* WHAT IS THE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF THE CHRONICLES OF LORREK:
Book 5 - You Left Me No Choice
Book 6 - They Must Be Stopped
Book 4 - Do You Trust Me?
Book 1 - Someday I'll Be Redeemed
Book 2 - I Still Have A Soul
Book 3 - I'm Still Alive
Book 7 - Find Me If You Can
Book 8 - You're Not Alone
Book 9 - This Ends Now
* DOES THE CHRONICLES OF LORREK SHORT STORY COLLECTION CONTAIN SPOILERS?
Yes. A lot of the stories deal with the aftermath of the books. However, it is broken up into different sections. Each section tells you that the following stories happen BEFORE, DURING, or AFTER a specific book. So if you've read up to a certain book in the series, you can read the short stories up to that point and not get spoiled.
* IS THE HAND OF SORROW SERIES IN THE SAME UNIVERSE OF THE CHRONICLES OF LORREK?
Yes, but the Hand of Sorrow series takes place about forty years before the Chronicles of Lorrek and is located on a different continent.
* DO YOU HAVE TO READ ONE SERIES BEFORE THE OTHER?
No. Both series stand independent of each other, but if you read the Chronicles of Lorrek first, you will catch special easter eggs in the Hand of Sorrow that you might not otherwise be aware of.
* DO CHARACTERS CROSSOVER BETWEEN SERIES?
Yes! While you meet many new faces in each series, you also see familiar ones too!
* WILL THERE BE A SHORT STORY COLLECTION FOR THE HAND OF SORROW SERIES?
Hopefully, yes. I have short stories planned to write, but it is just a matter of finding the time to write them. It won't be as long as the short story collection for the Chronicles of Lorrek, but that's because the Chronicles of Lorrek deals with nine books whereas the Hand of Sorrow only has five books.
*HOW MANY OTHER SERIES DO YOU HAVE PLANNED?
After the Hand of Sorrow series, there is the completed Assassin Pirate series that is waiting to be published. Then there are two other series, we're working on currently. After that, there are at least two others--likely more! Each time we write a series, an idea for a new series comes to mind!
* CAN I WRITE FAN FICTION OR CREATE FAN ART OF YOUR UNIVERSE?
Absolutely! I started off as a fan fiction writer, and it's amazing if anyone wants to write fan fiction or create fan art of my universe. Please share it with me! I'd love to see it!
* DO YOU HAVE A PRONUNCIATION GUIDE OR GLOSSARY?
In the Hand of Sorrow Books, the glossary at the end of each book has a pronunciation guide. We will be adding this to the Chronicles of Lorrek eventually as well as create a video, pronouncing the names.
* WHERE CAN I FIND OTHER FANS:
Mainly on my Facebook group, The Muse's Realm
* HOW DO I GET SIGNED COPIES?
Send me a message through the website, or if you're in the Facebook group, just post in the group, and I'll be happy to provide for you the prices of the books walk you through the process!
* ARE YOU ALSO THE AUTHOR OF THE HISTORICAL FICTION SERIES, 'THE LAST KING OF LEGENDS'?
Yes. Another name I published under was Serafia Cross, but those books currently being republished.
* IS THERE A FOURTH BOOK IN THE 'LAST KING OF LEGENDS' SERIES?
Yes. I'd written a fourth book and was in the middle of revising it when I had issues with my publisher back then and had to terminate my contract with them, unpublishing Books 1-3. At that time, I turned my attention to publishing my fantasy/sci-fi series, The Chronicles of Lorrek, and I've been too busy with that universe to go back and self-publish the historical fiction series.
* DO YOU EVER PLAN TO RE-RELEASE BOOKS 1-3 AND FINALLY PUBLISH THE FOURTH BOOK OF THE 'LAST KING OF LEGEND SERIES'?
Yes! I plan to re-release the first three books and finally publish the fourth book in 2023!
