NEW BOOK ALERT!! The Kindle ebook for Outlander’s Scar is now available, FINALLY. This is the story I’ve been working on, here and there through the years, since 6th grade. It’s a little different from the original.
Outlander’s Scar is the first book in the White Oak Chronicles. I have been working on this book for absolute ages. No lie. I wrote my first version of this story when I was on a trip to Starksville, Mississippi way back in like 1983 or 1984. It turned into a trilogy later.
I’m a little tired and loopy right now because I’ve really been working hard all day fixing up book covers and getting stuff formatted and published and fighting with an open-source version of Photoshop and I should really go and lie down. Oh, but I am glad the first book is out. Man, am I ever.
Acorn fights like the ancient warriors – as a yearling, he doesn’t have the weight to throw around – and loves the stories of the warriors, the Qelvska, who began the line of chieftains that now rule the raccoon tribes everywhere. Power and strength are Acorn’s goals – but then Catface, the leader of the outlanders, attacks him and gave him the outlander’s bite, the mark given to raccoons cast out of their tribes. Though Acorn did no wrong, his tribe shuns him. When another raccoon steals the chieftainship and exiles Acorn, he lashes back by stealing away the sister of death, which Catface was calling forth. War brews between outlanders and tribal raccoons, and Acorn knows that the only ones that suffer will be the innocents.
