Tuesdays with Taryn- A Second Visit with Larry Kollar @FARfetched58 #newreleases

Tuesdays with Taryn
A 2nd Visit with Larry Kollar

Since this is Larry's 2nd visit to Tuesdays with Taryn, I'm going to hand the reins over and let him fill you in on what's he's been up to and what's ahead for him this year. Have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the covers of these books and I'm totally intrigued and am going to have to check these out!

 Hi Taryn and readers, thanks for having me back!

For me, 2012 was a momentous year for writing. I finished two novels, two novellas, and started several more stories. One of the novels, White Pickups, went live in August. Its sequel, Pickups and Pestilence, is in beta now and is scheduled for spring release.

But this month, it's two fantasy novellas: One World, Two Ages. The main characters in The Crossover are historical figures in Accidental Sorcerers, and that's one thing that made writing these two stories fun.

Moving on through the rest of the year, there's plenty of writing to keep me occupied. I've already finished drafting Water and Chaos, the second of what I hope are many stories in the Accidental Sorcerers saga. I've started a story that revisits the world of the Truckalypse (White Pickups and Pickups and Pestilence) ten years later. There's a sequel to The Crossover that wants to be written, and I'm about halfway done with a "pre-zombie" story called UW-401.

But the Next Big Project is a YA, contemporary fantasy. I have the first book, tentatively titled Wings: Unfurled, largely plotted. That book will keep me busy through the year, unless I find a way to write faster. (Then there's the other two to follow.)
So I have plenty of stories to keep me busy through 2013. I just hope I have the stamina to pull it off!
Accidental Sorcerers (fantasy, YA, novella, release Jan. 15)
Invaders just across the river. A powerful spell hidden in a child’s rhyme. When an untrained boy awakens an ice dragon to protect his village, and lives to tell the tale, not even the Conclave of Sorcerers can predict what happens next.

Accidental Sorcerers brings to life an unforgettable tale of love and loyalty in the world of Termag. Feel the magic!

The Crossover (fantasy, novella, release Jan. 29)
The warrior-mage Chelinn and his friend Lodrán have visited many strange places. But when a curse goes awry, sending them to a world where mundane devices have supplanted magic, nothing is familiar at first. Then, after rescuing a merchant, they find themselves embroiled in a far more dangerous situation.

As hundreds of lives hang in the balance, two heroes and their new friends must use all their talents to foil an evil plot—and survive until they can catch a rainbow and return home.

The Crossover transports classic fantasy characters into a modern-day setting. Neither Earth nor Termag will ever be the same!

Larry also has a raffle going on-
