This Year’s Book:

This year the book that I will be editing is called “Who Would Destroy the Gods”

I have begun printing out the chapters and hope to have everything printed out by the end of the month.

I’m doing things a little bit differently. I already have a fully written story, now I need to make sure that its foundations are solid which means doing an outline and character sketches. I’ll be looking at the different aspects of the story and making sure that they gel the way they are supposed to.

As I work on the story I’ll first be updating everyone on the newsletter and then giving summary updates on the website. So stay tuned!

Another Day and Another Great Review!

Hey everyone! There is another review for Rail Road Rising!

Carrtog is the third son of a Lord, so there is no chance he will inherit. He decides to hire out as a mercenary. He has some knowledge of magic, a friend that is teaching him common sense and how to fight, and a good horse. Of course, he has to be careful about politics. They can kill him, too.

I wasn’t sure about this book, but it had gunpowder magic, steam power, a touch of romance, and great characters in it. Once I began reading it, all my doubts went away. This is a great adventure with the enemy having magic and a campaign against the king.

Carrtog rescues the King simply because he was there when they tried to kidnap him. He then gets pressed into service. Carrtog is young, though. He manages to anger the King before they get back to the castle. He also finds the Princess’ lady in waiting very attractive. That’s not a good thing, either. Mercenaries don’t have wives.

As his reward for saving the King, he’s appointed as a Lord. He’s also given the lady in waiting in marriage. That’s all well and fine, but then the King starts giving him impossible assignments waiting for him to fail. The King knows he failed on his mission in the past and Carrtog is a reminder. Carrtog is in a catch-22 situation.

It’s a busy story with lots of action and it was a great read. If you like sci-fi, you should read this.

Introductions, Explanations and Excuses

Hello, my name is Beth Wagner.

I am an artist and comic creator. My father, JP Wagner, was a writer. He had been writing all of his life and aside from having various articles publishing in various newspapers, he wrote many novels. The unfortunate thing about the novels is that none of them were published in his lifetime. The last words he spoke to me was to have me promise to protect his books and to represent him and his works.

This website is the work log which is dedicated to just that. Representing my father’s works and writing. You could call it a tribute page but really, this website will be a process blog as I edit his work and talk about the books that I am editing and getting ready for publication. There may also be some anecdotes as well depending on how everything evolves.
