This sounds like a grand adventure.
Tirumfall Trilogy by J Drew Brumbaugh is an Epic Fantasy.
Fall of the Western Kings ~ Tirumfall Trilogy Book 1
Gant is a commoner, forbidden from learning swordsmanship. He trains in spite of the law and ends up branded an outlaw. However fate intervenes while Gant is on the run and soon he is embroiled in an odyssey with forces of darkness that can only be vanquished with help from his friends, not all of whom are human. An epic that delivers the best in the tradition of classic fantasy.
Child of Evil ~ Tirumfall Trilogy Book 2
The story started with “Fall of the Western Kings”. Now “Child of Evil” continues the odyssey of Gant, the hero who killed Varg with his magical sword Valorious and who must now use his strength and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd, the city where the child will be born. Amelia is a shape-changer who flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and imprisoned. Pris, the emperor and blossoming wizard, worries about the evil forces and knows the child cannot be allowed to unite the demonic powers. His untested magic will be key to stopping the impending doom. Dalphnia, Gant’s wife, is a woodland nymph who can control the trees of the forest and is determined to see her husband come through this journey alive. Can this unlikely group intervene in time to stop the child and the carnage that is sure to follow? Will it mean killing the child? Resolving this moral dilemma while outwitting the demons and getting back to the safety of their homes makes for a rousing adventure. “Child of Evil” is the second book in J. Drew Brumbaugh’s fantasy series, The Tirumfall Triology.
About the Author
I live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I think I’d like to read with characters that are interesting enough that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded, building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the woods with our dog. I have six novels in print, the most recent being “Bula Bridge,” a collection of short stories, and a co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.
Hi J. Drew, and thank you for being here with us today!
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
Generally I work on one book at a time. I need to focus on one set of characters and one plot. When I start trying to do multiple projects I find myself confusing things, mixing plots, characters and worse. One at a time just seems to work best. However, I do keep notebooks where I jot down ideas that may go with a project I am not currently working on so that the ideas don’t slip away. I always have ideas in those notebooks for several other novels but very seldom do I actually write portions of them while I’m working on one.
Advice they would give new authors?
Write consistently and try to get better all the time. One important thing to remember is that a first draft only has one requirement – to be finished. Don’t start critiquing your work in that first stage or you’ll find yourself rewriting the same sections over and over. Don’t second-guess as you put that first draft down, plunge onward until you can say you have it done. And as you get closer to a final manuscript, find a good, critical editor that you can work with and listen to what they have to say.
Describe your writing style.
I write suspense novels that are character driven. My general method is to give the reader an intimate look into the characters early on. I want the reader to see into their lives, feel their joy and sorrow and then build the plot around them. As the story progresses I like to have chapters end with a cliffhanger, leave the reader wondering what happens next to that character. Some readers want to see something major happen on page one and in my books they are often disappointed. I try to get the readers invested in the characters first before the major plot twists hit the fan. If I’ve done it right, whatever happens will mean that the reader is happily engaged with the story.
