ANNOUNCEMENT: Shattered Shards (Audio), by Stephen J. Wolf

QSFer Stephen J. Wolf has a new queer fantasy book out in audio format: Shattered Shards.

The shattered shards in a shattered land….

With the fall of the prisoner’s tower, Dariak and his companions head west toward his home kingdom of Hathreneir. The group struggles against feral creatures while striving to avoid the king’s soldiers. With each piece of the Red Jade, Dariak’s powers grow, but – as in Pindington – he can’t always control them.

As the group journeys through the opposing kingdoms, each member must confront his or her past. Though they gather allies along the way, the war looms closer and peace seems ever out of reach. Only uniting the jade fragments can save them, or so Dariak believes.

The desert expanse of Hathreneir reaches silently toward the lush fields of Kallisor. Restoring the balance of magic can save the realms, but with the shards in the hands of foes, and two kings locked in an ages-old battle, the Red Jade isn’t the only thing that is shattered.

Author Bio

Stephen J. Wolf is a middle school science teacher with a PhD in science education and a penchant for fantasy books, movies, and video games. Stephen started writing in eighth grade when his English teacher challenged the class to craft three different scenes. One scene focused on a person. A second highlighted a location. And the third detailed an object. In the moment of the quick-fire writing prompts, Wolf linked all three tasks together and created his first short story. The following year he created his first novella, then expanded it to a trilogy, growing as a writer along the way. 

Wolf has a five-book fantasy series available on Amazon. Details can be found at Red-Jade.com. 

Wolf opted to learn JavaScript coding and created a book to educate others. “Coding for Kids: Learn JavaScript: Build the Room Adventure Game” guides the reader through the steps needed to make a choose-your-own-adventure game, walking through a house to gather items and fix things that are broken. The setting can be adapted to a fantasy realm, a space station, or wherever your imagine may take you. A second JavaScript coding book, “Build Mini Apps” is coming soon. 

Stephen lives in New York with his partner, Kevin, and their cats, Merlin and Monty.
