Update!

My publisher has provided me with the final cover for my second The Sword of the Dragon novel, Offspring! If you have already ordered this book, you should receive it sometime toward the end of this month.

Also, I am almost finished writing the first The Sword of the Dragon novella, titled Daughter of the Eiderveis! The story is turning out great. I think my readers will really enjoy it, especially the insights I give into the origins of the battle between Albino and Hermenuedis. This novel fits comfortably after The Sword of the Dragon-book three-Key of Living Fire. You can keep track of my word-count progress on the right hand side of this blog.

Thanks, Brian! I'm thrilled with it. It is even better than I'd hoped for... definitely better than the original cover. They are going to do some raised text and special coatings on the image/cover, too!

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
