    1. What ebooks are you talking about, Kyle? If you are talking about THE DARK THORN and UNFETTERED, yes, they are available as ebooks. 🙂

  1. I have not read any of your books yet. Before I begin, I am curious if there is a recommended reading order to your books? Or, do you recommend an order? Or, one series before the other (Tales of Annwyn vs The Annwyn Cycle)?

    1. The first novel is The Dark Thorn. It sets up the world of Annwn and my principal character, Richard McAllister.

      That said, if you want a small taste of my writing, you can try the short short story The Unlocked Tome. It is available as an ebook. Or try four short stories in The Twilight Dragon (you’d want to ignore the second book’s three teaser chapters at its end though), also an ebook.

  2. Hi Shawn,

    I just finished the Twilight Dragon and read the excerpt of The Everwinter Wraith. According to that section of the book, the wraith story would be out in 2015. There’s not much of 2015 left, so when’s the book due. “Enquiring minds” 🙂

    1. It will be 2016 now. I’m 1/3 through it and will need the next three or four months to get it finished. Thanks for reading my work! Be sure to check out Unbound, which features a new Annwn Cycle short story.

  3. Hi! Loved Unfettered. I really dislike ebooks, and prefer the feel of a real book in my hands. Will Unbound be available as a book-book?

    1. Plans, yes. Current plans, no. I’d have to go back into that book, rewrite a lot of it, and then continue on with its sequel. I wrote about 8 chapters in that sequel. Other things are taking up my writing time right now but one day I hope to return to Sorin’s story. Would be fun, mostly because I miss his giant. haha

  4. Any new ETA on Everwinter Wraith? I’ve just read everything else you’ve written on Annwn and I’m chomping at the bit to see where you take the story.

    1. Awe, thanks, Loni! You just made my Wednesday bright! There is no new ETA on Everwinter Wraith sadly. I’m working on a different novel and trying to finish it by June. It is a SF/F hybrid novel featuring giant mechs, dragons, and a young woman’s adventure through a world that has fallen away.

      When I am done with that, I will be going back to the Everwinter Wraith, which I’ve written about half of so far.

      I will have a new short story coming out in Unfettered III though. You can read the first part of that story here: https://www.wattpad.com/story/34923744-the-shadowed-flames

      Thanks for following my work! Means a lot! And if you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

  5. I keep thinking I read a Tathal Ennis short story in which he killed in a bar. Which story was this and in which book?
