Category: Fantasy Novels – Amanda Young


My website is now http://www.wotpast.webs.com. Similar to the old website, but you have to type the “webs” part in now.  I lost the domain back in October and have been in the process of fixing the free website picture links. If you notice any that don’t work let me know. It has been a pain and Now I have to fix the link in a few dozen other places as well. Not to mention all my business cards and brochures are incorrect now. *sigh* That’s what happens when your domain come due right after you have a baby. A couple of months of not really checking email caught up to me and I forgot I didn’t have it on automatic payment anymore.  It has been very discouraging. I can’t get my old domain back unless I’m willing to pay a couple of thousand dollars to get it. And now all my previously published books reference a website that no longer functions. I apologize for any confusion. You can still find my books by searching on smashwords or amazon. If you ever have trouble locating info on any of my books, please let me know. Thank you all for your patience and understanding as I work to correct this problem.

BTW: Currently working on my next book. No promises on publish date. but I have a good part of the outline figured out, so whenever the new baby gives me a chance to work on typing it, I should be able to crank it out relatively quickly. 🙂

The next book in my fantasy series is in the works. I currently have 7000 words typed. I also have over 10,000 typed on my third romance book, but that is another post.

I am really excited over where this book is going, but haven’t had a lot of time to work on it lately. Working a full time job and taking care of two small children can make it difficult to get time in front of the laptop to type. I am always thinking about my characters and story. I just can’t always get it typed in a timely manner. Add to that all my other crazy projects and chores, and trying to market my other books, and I am a very busy person.

Book two will continue to follow Kern, the main character from “Suriax.” (On sale during the month of October. See here for details.) Readers will also learn the secrets behind the raiders from the Southern Plains. If you enjoyed Maerishka and her disfunctional sibling relationships, you are in for a treat. The siblings will come together in a meeting for the bards to sing about for generations. Book 2 promises to be an explosive action packed book of war, survival and family. Keep checking back for updates.
