I am happy to announce the sequel to Kingdom Come, entitled On Earth, As It Is. This book will be a standalone novel as well as a sequel. Most characters will return, and a number of new characters will be introduced. I don’t think I’m giving too much away when I say that more of this novel will be set on Earth than the first one. If you like the world of Kingdom, however, not to worry! There are many scenes on both worlds.
The novel starts with Earth couple Harold and Sondra discovering the queens of the fantasy world of Kingdom have been kidnapped. The queens have actually been transported to Earth and must find a way back. However, as part of the curse that brought them here, they must disguise themselves as regular women until they return. And with fairytale queens like sweet Snow White, lovestruck Cinderella, or warrior-minded Helga, the main characters have their hands full keeping them out of trouble.
Kingdom Come barely scratches the surface of the characters of the fairytale queens. As this novel takes place three years later, the queens have been ruling Kingdom and understand each other more. They’re less polite to each other (more like a family), but they also have stronger bonds with each other.
The novel will be classified as a new adult, fantasy novel acceptable for all genders and for a mature (14+) young adult. It contains mild profanity (lighter than a lot of YA novels), some violence, and a light, romantic scene. The novel’s themes explore what it’s like to be someone in their early twenties, and, while it’s certainly rooted in fantasy, the book has scenes of people raising children, worried about their jobs, and other “normal” activities. Before you can ask “What kind of a fantasy is this?”, rest assured, the novel contains sword-fighting and monster-vanquishing a-plenty as well.
Technically, the book will be about the same length, illustrated by the great Daniel Johnson, and available on all major bookseller sites. I strive to bring you the best product I can. It has been critiqued by a number of different people, and it has been professionally edited. I want to make sure you will get your money’s worth.
I hope to publish in spring of 2019. As time passes, I will update this post with a more accurate date. I hope you pick it up, read it, and enjoy it. I had a blast writing it.
