Brothers in Arms (Book Two)

The Novel

Participant-100x100-2“Brothers in Arms” is the sequel to “A Few Good Elves,” my entry in 2011’s National Novel Writing Month, in which I was a winner. I was not successful in 2012 because I had a November 15th deadline on a non-fiction book that will be published by Weiser Books this fall. Writing on this novel has begun, but it is not completed yet! Just as I did for the first novel in the series, I will be publishing “Brothers in Arms” to Scribd chapter by chapter as it is written. Currently, the Prologue and Chapters One through Sixteen are available (769 pages, 178,479 words.)

The Toy Soldier Saga is a work in progress! Please check back frequently for new installments or sign up for our Crew.

  2. Is this book done? The copy I downloaded previously cut out on page 617 after a certain somebody fell into a toilet. (no spoilers) I love the story you’re telling and your writing is incredible, keep up the great work!

    • Not yet! But the home stretch is in sight; I just started part 4, and I think there will be 5 parts. There have been some significant changes since that last installment (namely, I switched the roles of a couple of characters; no spoilers but you may have to skim through it again to catch up with the changes) and I’ll be uploading a new installment as soon as I finish my current edit; probably in just a couple of days. Thanks so much for the encouragement!

      • I’m a smart feller, I’ll probably manage to figure it out. 🙂 But for the record, *THIS* book (Brothers In Arms) is done, right? You’re onto at least Sable’s Privatters?

      • I am not! I started writing the beginning of Sable’s Privateers because the rules of National Novel Writing Month specify that you must start a NEW novel, and I knew roughly how Brothers was going to end, so I was able to write what I have written. I am still actively working on it, though I am nearing the end. Sorry for the confusion!
