Prelude to a Hero is book one in the Chronicles of a Hero series, by Jaime Buckley.

Race to Til-Thorin Chronicles of a Hero Book 2
Dream girls. Fried snails. A 30” bodyguard with pink ponytails. Being a hero comes with learning curves. The curve of a hip. The curve of a sword. The curve of a sucker punch as it connects with your face. It wouldn’t be so bad if Wendell had professionals to help him. Instead, he’s stuck with a feisty gnome, a senile old wizard and a green skinned, cigar-smoking babysitter to guide him. Is it too late to quit?

Rowling and Brandon Sanderson will surely get addicted to this original new world. Feed your fantasy needs and grab your copy today! “I have not laughed so hard in a long time.

Welcome to the Chronicles of a Hero book blog tour.

There’s an exciting aspect of writing novels that I have become addicted to: research.
I love learning about new things, places, people, events, science and the list goes on. But there’s a side effect to this grand adventure in expanding your brain and that’s awareness.
Wanted Hero has been on my mind and on my lips as stories for children and adults alike for decades, but it never occurred to me, being a story with a great deal of humor, obnoxiousness, puns, danger and magic, that aspects of it truly didn’t make sense.
Thank heaven for awesome wives who catch things like this before books go to print!
My desire is always to help you lose yourself in the adventures. Show you the wonderful cities and ancient glyphs, ride the wild beasts of forgotten realms…and believe in the end that it just might exist after all.
That takes more than just smiling when a clever reader asks you ‘why?‘ or ‘how is that possible?‘
The answer can’t always be “it’s magic“.
Not only does that become anticlimactic, it’s flat out lame IMO.
Enter “the wife”. The brilliant woman who says I’m the creator, but she’s the ‘organizer‘.
(I love when she says that…)
When I got out the years of notes to do the novel series, we agreed that no matter how long it took to release the first book, it would be the foundation to set the stage for the rest of the adventure.
A sure and solid foundation that worked, made sense and instilled a “WOW!” factor when it came to the Universe.
It also meant, that I had to realize many of the creations developed and even used in the comic version of the story, simply didn’t work in novel form.
This was an epic blow to me mentally and emotionally—because I’d spent years on those comics and they flew off my website faster than I ever could have imagined. So why wouldn’t it work in a novel, right?
I couldn’t draw everything I had in my mind, regardless of skill level. Yet in words, the FX department of my mind has an unlimited budget!
So where a simple revision might take days, weeks or even months, this has become a daily adventure as a writer. So far I have written the equivalent of nearly four times the size of the novel itself (which is roughly 120,000 words), just in NOTES.
And we’re not done yet.
The biggest discovery so far, has been The Universe.
Studying how stars work, their classifications, light, distance, habitable planets, etc….ALL tell me that my desire to have a single system with the multiple planets doesn’t work.
At least not in the fashion this story is meant to be told.
The answer? I now have to rewrite the entire structure and foundation history the story was based on and what The Great Sundering means, the events, people, cultures, conflicts and the end results of where the colonies end up.
Do I create new lands or races now? Do I create special plants, animals and magic with unique dynamics?
Double and TRIPLE Ouch.
Best part is, the deadline is Monday!
So hang tight my friends, this just gets better and better and I assure you, you’re going to be impressed.
