Start Reading the Books!


Yep–right here! This began as a “deleted chapter” in Book 7, The Soldier in the Middle of the World. I removed Teeria Rigoff’s story because it was slowing down the flow, but I so appreciate Teeria, whose story I still wanted to tell.

So here it is–developed into a short story and ready for reading, exclusively here.

Want to listen to it instead? Exclusively here, the AUDIO FORMAT! Click here to listen to me reading it out loud (no one else would do it, sorry).

Teeria Rigoff short story cover

A prequel? YES! A prequel!

Taking place four decades before Book 1, this tells the story of High General Pere Shin and the servants of King Querul. A quick read at only 180 pages, it’s also a good way to start the entire series.

As always, I want to provide my books for free, because these stories were freely given to me and I freely want to share them with you: Salem’s way. You may read and share but you may NOT profit from them. (I haven’t either, by the way. My total net income from these books has been $0. I do get small residuals from sales, but I donate 100% of that to LDS charities.)

    • Thanks for writing!
      I have a working draft of a prequel series about Lek and Lorixania, but it’s going to be very slow in coming. I teach school full-time, and have a family, so writing gets fit in here and there at odd times. It’s all in my head, I just can’t get it out onto my screen fast enough!
      I wish I had a timetable to give you, but it’s at least another year for the first book. Sorry. (Unless I miraculous suddenly have a lot of time . . .)


  1. Beautiful tale of world, and faith and peoples. I loved every book of the series and I hardly wait for the fifth one. When is scheduled to appear?
    Keeping an eye wide opened 🙂
