Would you please explain for all of the fans, the relationship between faith in The King of Alleble and faith in The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords (ie...rewards for faith vs. retribution for a lack of faith)?
(oh yeah...let's delve deep into the allegory, folks)

Okay, Wayne, I just bought your first two books from a local Christian bookstore, and I have a couple of questions before I read them.
1) I have the versions with the gold seal that says, "Includes the all new lost chapters." Is, or will there be, a version of book three like this?
2) Why is the text of The Door Within novel printed in blue ink and The Rise of the Wyrm Lord printed in the regular black?

But the parenthetical thought kind of throws me: (ie...rewards for faith vs. retribution for a lack of faith)--Not sure what you mean.
Sorry. Muddled author here.

Yes, the paperback versions you hold are the Lost Chapter versions. They include cut scenes, extended scenes, and new original material! There are also commentaries from me and my editors at Thomas Nelson. The Final Storm will have a lost chapters edition--due out first week in Sept.
2. I have no idea why Wyrm Lord Lost Chapters didn't have the colored ink. Perhaps the pub was saving some money? lol

ah, in that case, I'm glad I didn't order Final Storm earlier when I ordered Rise of the Wyrm Lord... I will wait for the Lost Chapters version

even though I own a copy of Final Storm, will be getting the Lost Chapters version. Hey! I always need a second copy of such a great series!

Paperbacks are nice, but they just don't stay in great condition the way the hardback will and while the new versions are nice books, I just can't get over how nice those hardbacks are.
Nothing wrong with having them all though, is there Wayne

true enough... but for now, since I have the first two in the paperback versions, I'm going to get the third that way... ya never know what'll happen in the future though...

Of course, there might be a 3rd option. Hmmm...

I know that as a reader it is always kind of sad to finish a series of books. Obviously I can re-read them anytime I want to, but that inital revelation as to how the story finally unfolds is never really the same after the first time through. I wonder if you have a similar feeling as an author and if you have consdered re-visting Alleble in some way in a future book/series.

Will I ever write another Door Within tale? You never know. Adventures, after all, are funny things.
In the near run, however, I've got a sequel to Isle of Swords to finish by October. And then, I am SO stoked to begin a 5-7 book new fantasy series that I think will blow the doors off anything I've ever written. Of course, I don't have a contract for this new series yet, but I'll leave that to God.

Are you going for Tommy Nelson again or somebody else? And are you thinking of a CBA publisher still, or will you try for an ABA publisher?

The only concern is that my subject matter may be a little too edgy for them--esp. now that they've changed their age-group definitions. This new series will not be objectionable in any way, and will be a true fantasy story, but like Lord of the Rings, it'll be a serious tale, full of serious themes. What they might do is bump me up to general fiction as opposed to the children's division. Not sure.
But I hope to stay with TN. I think this series will be the best thing I've ever written. God has literally been raining cool ideas into my head. I've got about 15 files chock full of fantasy goodness.
