Rise of the Empire book 11

Hello all!

The next to last Rise of the Empire book is out! We are so close to the end!

A few of you have asked me if there will be a sequel series, and I just wanted to let you know my plans. After Rise of the Empire ends, there will be a direct sequel trilogy which will focus on three characters from RotE, and will serve as an introduction into the multiverse stuff. As I have already said, all my books take place in the same multiverse, and some characters crossover. So far the only characters that have appeared in all of the books are from RotE, and this trilogy will explain a bit more how that happened.

Once again, if you don't read any other series, you will not be missing anything. Characters that have currently crossed over are not at the same point in time as in their origin series, and I will always provide explanations where needed. And the ending of RotE will close the arc of the Empire.

Also, I think that now is a good time to let you know about the timeline of the multiverse so that you know in which order the events take place.

Timeline:

  1. -Rise of the Empire

  2. -Chaos and Order trilogy (Coming soon!)

  3. -Universe on Fire

  4. -Eternal Path

  5. -Tower of Power

I will be revealing a lot more about the multiverse after the end of Rise of the Empire series, which will be at the end of April.

Oh, one last thing. The next Tower of Power book will be out around the first week of February, after that around the first week of March is the Eternal Path book 2.

That's it!

Cheers,

Ivan

Universe on Fire book 2

Hello all!

Universe on Fire book 2 is finally here and I hope that you like it!

I've been wanting to reveal something about my books for a while now, and I've been waiting for the right moment. Originally I was going to let you all know about this after I finished Rise of the Empire series, but I think that now is a good time to at least let you in on a few things. Some of you have already figured this out, and sent me emails asking questions, so here it goes:

All of my series take place inside the same multiverse. Each series is in its own universe, and each follows its own characters and story, but a few characters have already crossed over between the series. Now, I want you to know that it is not required for you to read every series in order to understand what is happening, every series stands on its own without you needing to read something else to understand what is going on. And my series cross many genres, you don't need to read a genre you don't like just so that you would get what is happening in the series that you do read. But for you who are reading all of them or more than one, there are a few Easter eggs and insights into what might come in the future. I plan on revealing more about this multiverse as the stories in these series continue, and everything that is relevant will be explained in every series, so you don't need to feel pressured to read the other ones. I've also commissioned some artwork to better illustrate how the multiverse works, and I will be revealing more about it on my facebook page and my blog once that is finished. For now, you should just know that every series takes place at a different point in time (for now) and I will be releasing a time-line of the events on my website some time in the future, for those of you who are interested.

Once again, I want you to know that you will not be missing anything if you don't read any other series. Characters that have currently crossed over are not at the same point in time as in their origin series, and so they are a mystery even to those who recognize them.

I will be revealing a lot more about the multiverse after the end of Rise of the Empire series, which should end around April or May next year.

The current schedule looks something like this:

End of November — Rise of the Empire 11

End of January — Tower of Power 2

End of February — Eternal Path 2

That's it!

Cheers,

Ivan

New release - RotE 10

Hello,

Just wanted to let you all know that Rise of the Empire book 10 - Nomad Fleet is now out and available on Amazon.

And I've also made all RotE books available in paperback, you might need to search for them (it takes a bit for Amazon to link the store pages).

With this book the Rise of the Empire series is entering its last arc, with the finale being book 12. It's been a lot of fun writing this series, I've had this ending in my head almost since book 2, and it feels good to finally get close to the end. Hopefully you will like it.

A few of you had asked me if there will be a sequel series, and I don't really want to reveal a lot now and spoil the ending. Suffice to say that the Rise of the Empire ending will finish the story started in book 1. Rise of the Empire will have an end.

The schedule for the next few months is currently like this:

Eternal Path book 2 - End of October

Rise of the Empire book 11 - End of December

Universe on Fire book 2 - Early 2019

Rise of the Empire book 12 - sometime around April

Cheers,

Ivan

Inheritance is out!

I am happy to announce that Inheritance is now out and available on Amazon kindle!

Inheritance begins the next to last arc of the Rise of the Empire series. I don't yet know how many books it will take me to tell the rest of the story, but we are close to the middle point.

Well, now that this one is done I can start on the next one (after a short vacation). My plan is to get two more books out by the end of the year, one in the fall and the other one in winter. And if everything goes according to plan, get four books out in 2017. Also I need to start paying attention to my other projects, I have six other books in various stages of completion. Some have a few chapters written, others are half-way finished. But for now the Rise of the Empire is a priority!

I hope that you will enjoy Inheritance!
