The Oracle's Amulet is here!

It's official The Oracle's Amulet is now available for pre-order on Amazon for Kindle. You can pre-order your copy here.



The Oracle’s amulet is missing. With its power, a nation can be brought to its knees and a mighty queen reduced to a mere puppet in the hands of her betrayer. In search of the amulet, an old enemy and an unlikely ally are in Pathen seeking the First Greaneth’s help. In the meantime, Mellis has his hands full with a visitor from Velesi—a young elf looking for his “uncle.”

Their quest for the amulet leads them back to Velesi and into Nyloth Woods. The journey takes them into treacherous territory, where danger comes in many forms. For Alorn, repressed memories open old wounds, and the need to silence the weeping he’s lived with since childhood. Mellis discovers the true essence of the Silverfish and its connection to the girl with the purple shark birthmark.

The Oracle’s Amulet leads the Greaneths to a world of wonder and conspiracy, of beauty and death. And the discovery of the amulet’s true purpose will change Alorn’s life forever.


The Oracle's Amulet will be released on Amazon

The Binding - The Graphic Novel

Visit us on Kickstarter!
It's happening! We're taking the Velesi trilogy to the graphic novel realm! I'm very excited to share this news with you and hope you will join me on this next journey for Lily and Tharin and the elves of Velesi!

We start with The Binding, breaking it down into 5 limited edition issues. Once all issues are done, they will be combined into one complete graphic novel. The success of this project will be used as a template for the remaining two books: The Drifting and The Whispering.

To help me put their story into illustrated form I have brought on board Las Vegas local artist, Tia Sifford who will be responsible for the main graphics. Also joining our team is California based Rita Fatu. Rita is our lead cover artist for all cover issues. At a later date we will bring on a letterer to help complete this project.

Pledges will help pay for all artists, letterer, supplies and materials, and the two major elements in making this project happen: printing and distribution.

Please, take a moment and visit our page, review the rewards tier and make a selection.

Although there are several rewards listed, my theory is if everyone pledges the $1 reward, we would reach our goal before the campaign ends.

Thank you so much for your support and much love from Velesi!

Until next time, good reading to all!

REVIEW: Daughter of the Drackan: Book 1 of Gyenona's Children



I had to give it a day before writing this review for this new Dark Fantasy by Kathrin Hutson. It's rare when a story eats at me to not only read it nonstop until I reached the end, but continue to force myself to remember to "sip and not gulp" it in its entirety. And that's how this masterpiece should be read; nice and slow in order to take in all the imagery, the well developed characters, the background scenery and the nooks and cranny that is the Daughter of the Drackan.

Hutson's ability to thread words together to bring to life a tale of courage, discovery, loss, love and death, in ways only true master storytellers can, is...well, I have no word for it. Words such as amazing, outstanding, brilliant...are trivial and doesn't come close to describe her writing. I couldn't put the book down, and when I had no choice, the story nagged at me constantly until I was able to return. The characters, those of human and drackan kind, are vivid and full of colors. Their fears, needs, wants, joy and frustration become yours and you will find disconnecting with them a difficult task.

You will discover Keelin and how she came to be raised by an elderly drackan. When she begins to have blackouts that she can't explain, the world of man pulls at her to find her answers. Her loyalty is tested, her fear becomes her strength. She becomes divided. In the world of drackan she is Keelin, in the world of man she is Kaht-Amvir. Two different women, one body and soul.

Keelin's story is a complex one, but is expertly told with ease. Her's is a story well captured and should be released over and over again by many. Ms. Hutson is a true storyteller.

There is a preview of the sequel included at the end that is so tantalizingly delicious and insanely cruel I wanted to reach out and strangle the storyteller. Well played, Ms. Hutson, well played.


This is a great read and I highly recommend it. Click on the book cover and it will take you directly to its Amazon page.

Until the next time, good reading to all!
