This Christmas marked the completion of book#00 The End
2014 marked the completion of the manuscript and the book going live on Amazon.
2015 marked the release of iBooks and paperback versions.

This marks the end of the development cycle for The End which was never supposed to have existed beyond a pile of rough notes. 
I must say now that I will reedit it at some point but I will say now that the Amazon one contains the exclusive books #02 Second life and #03 Dragon Hunt. These two are not fully edited and will be removed in the future but for now Book #03 is the important.

Dragon Hunt was a short based on an idea I came up with while traveling, but while waiting on the editing of book#1.0 I have started the development on what is to be considered the first "Cross-over" novel.  Dragon World: Exiles.

Dragon Hunt was written from James Purcells point of view, but as development moved on I realised I wanted to write it from the other side. This has now resulted in three version, The first version on Amazon, Exiles and an Interactive Fiction version (a text based adventure game) that is in development. This year I plan to get Book #1.0 Æther Shadow which is the next in the Diaries of James Purcell story published along with Book #00 Dragon World:Exiles published so that I can move on to Book #2.0 Kitsune, the next in the Diaries of James Purcell story.

For now I will just leave leave a little spoiler from Dragon World:Exiles

    Ten Years Previous.

        Even though there were no humans living in the forest it didn't mean that the forest was quite. Birds tweeted in the trees and the leaves rustled and the wind blew through. On the ground a fox was searching for easy pray, but then it stopped, looked towards a circle of standing stones then turned and fled to a hole in the embankment that surrounded the clearing in which the stone circle had been constructed. The forest was suddenly quite as every animal stop scared of something. The air in the clearing around the stones felt like air after a lightning strike and as if something had started the birds, they all took off and flew from the clearing.

    The stones started to glow, ancient writing that had not been seen on their surface could was now visible and as if the writing was a source of heat, the vines and moss that had grown on there surface started to smoke before catching fire and burning away to leave the stone circle clear. The glow grew and lightning started to flash across the surfaces. The lighting bolts grew and started to flash between the stones and then striking the middle of the circle. As the activity increased, the strikes started to collide in the air in the middle and a ball of light formed. The ball grew to engulfed the centre of the circle before stopping just short of the standing stones around the edge.

    A shadow formed in the centre and grew like the shadow of a man appearing in a fog bank. As the shadow grew it took on a form that could be described as a demonic monster. The form looked like a dinosaur but had wings. The creature stepped from the centre of the circle and took a look around and the forest surrounding it. The lightning in the centre of the circle stopped and the light vanished, followed by the writing until the stones looked like normal stone.

    "Exile or death, what a choice," the creature muttered to its self as it took a look around the world that would be its new home. It raised its head and sniffed at the air before letting out a growl of disgust. It opened it's great black dark pearlescent wings and using the stones as a launch platform, leapt into the sky and flew away.
