The Dragons of Ash and Smoke is now available!

Hi folks:

I’m pleased to announce that the next book in the Tales from the New Earth series, the Dragons of Ash and Smoke, is now available at Amazon. Just click on the cover of the book on the right to get to the proper page. Here’s the blurb:

Simon O’Toole; wizard, Changling, survivor of the end of the old world, returns to the town of Nottinghill after an epic battle with a primal dragon, only to find it destroyed. His friends are gone, humanity’s hope for the future seems to lie in ruins and all of his efforts appear to have been for naught. The wizard is devastated. And then, as he gazes hopelessly around at the burning settlement, Simon hears a roar and looks up to see a red dragon diving at him out of the sun like a monstrous bird of prey. The gaping jaws spew a torrent of liquid fire downward and the wizard is engulfed…and knows no more.
Did Simon O’Toole survive? If not, who will take up the torch and lead the scattered remnants of the human race against their greatest foes? Is there anyone left alive who is powerful enough to take the wizard’s place? Only one thing is certain: on the New Earth, if the human race is to survive, then the dragons must die.

I’ve very much enjoyed writing this one. The New Earth gets more interesting every time I go back to it. I really hope you have fun when you jump back in as well. Take care.

New Ink

Hi folks:

In honor of the success of the Tales of the New Earth series and my love of dragons (and my birthday), I got a new tattoo. I think it turned out great. And the new novel is close to being released, so there’s that as well.

The Dragons of Decay is now available!

Hi all:

Well, it took a little longer to release than I expected, but the newest novel in the Tales from the New Earth series is here! The Dragons of Decay is available at Amazon. Here is the Link.

And here is the synopsis:

The old world of technology has fallen and a new world, filled with magic, has risen from the ashes. Humanity, decimated by massive dragon attacks, is now on the brink of extinction. Those who have survived have been Changed, altered by the gods to enable them to exist in a world thick with magical energy. But a handful have become more and the greatest of these is Simon O’Toole.
Simon, once a heavy-set, middle-aged IT worker had been Changed into a slight young man brimming with power: a wizard. Trying to master his new magical skills and fighting to survive against the dragons that are hunting down the few remaining Changlings, the young wizard now faces the greatest threat of his new life. Brown dragons, led by an arrogant and incredibly powerful primal dragon, have invaded the land of the elves, one of humanity’s only allies. On the New Earth, the red dragons are aggressively searching for the last of the Changlings. And now Simon has to choose: protect his own people from the ravages of the dragons on this world, or travel to the elven realm to try to save his allies. He is only one man, faced with a terrible choice, and if he makes the wrong decision, it could mean the end of the human race and the rise of the gods of Chaos.

Thanks everyone for your patience and I really hope you enjoy the novel!

Take care,

J.J.

The Dragons of Ice and Snow is now available!

Hey all:

The third book in my series: Tales from the New Earth is now online and available at Amazon. The Dragons of Ice and Snow takes us back to the world of Simon O’Toole, former middle-aged IT specialist, now young wizard.

It’s been four years since technology failed and magic returned to the Earth. Four years since masses of dragons descended upon the cities and towns of humanity and razed them to the ground, bringing the human race to the edge of extinction. The few people who survived have been Changed, made into beings who can live in an environment rich in magic. Many can use the power, but the only wizard to emerge on to the New Earth is Simon O’Toole.

Desperately searching for other Changlings to aid him in his battle against the dragons and their masters, the dark gods of Chaos, Simon discovered that a small group of people were living in Moscow, led by a paladin named Liliana. A meeting was arranged between them, but when the wizard and his elemental friends Kronk and Aeris arrived, they are attacked…by white dragons.

Now Simon is on the run across the desolate winter landscape of northern Europe, trying to escape from the dragons and learn if the paladin and her people were destroyed by the wyrms, or if they had set him up.

Here’s the link to the novel: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XNZW0VQ

I hope you enjoy the continuing adventures of Simon and the other Changlings on the New Earth. And thank you all for your ongoing support! This series has been so much fun to write and it’s exciting that others are sharing in my world. Take care.
