Second Chance: A BATTLE MAGE REBORN (Book 1)... now live on

The initial response has been really good so far, and a number of readers have already finished.

I find this impressive because it isn't a light read compared to standard novel lengths. At 142K+ words, you're definitely getting a full story.

The first sales started to come in before I even knew the book had gone live. From what I can tell, they came in through the Australian Amazon site. It was a huge surprise, and I just want to send a shout out to all my international readers.

You are awesome!

Readers from have been great, too. This is where most copies are currently being sold.

Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. I can't tell you enough how much it means to me that you've decided to spend your time reading something I've written.

I'm just so mind-boggled about it all.

Just a tip for all you out there, and I'm not really planning to say much about this in the future... if you are reading Second Chance and you get to the Author Notes... keep reading.

There's a bonus chapter, kind of like an after-the-credits treat for those who choose to stick around.

If you haven't read it yet, and are wondering what all the fuss is about, you can check out the free preview down below.

Second Chance, Book 1 of A Battle Mage Reborn, is a GameLit novel with Soft LitRPG elements.

The setting is an Afterlife-based Game System. There are quests and EXP and a couple low-level dungeons. If you enjoy LitRPG and don't mind non-crunchy stories (no character sheets), I suggest giving it a try.

  1. I really enjoy your book so far. I was hoping to hear that you will be writing more in this series. Is that your intention? Would be nice to know that there will be more books coming.

    1. Chad,
      You will probably be very happy to hear that I am definitely planning more books in this series. In fact, I’ve already started on Book 2!

      Big things are brewing in EndWorld for Denton Wade. And he’s going to have to overcome some pretty big hurdles before it’s all done. There are clues in Book 1, but it would be very difficult to spot them without context. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait! You can join my newsletter if you’d like news on the upcoming release.

      I’m excited about where Denton’s story is headed, and I’m really glad you’re enjoying it so far. Thank you for being a part of the journey!


  2. Thanks for the reply. By the way, I flew through the book. Really enjoyed it. Great job!I have read a lot of LitRPGs and your book is right up there with my favorites. And….i too played a long time on FFXI, and saw some of the terms used in the book from that game. Made me smile. Seems like your life is busy, but please keep the series going. I will tell my friends about it. Take care. Oh, P.S. loved the comments in back of book.

    1. Chad,
      I’m really glad you liked the rest of the book! Did you see the bonus chapter after the author notes?

      I promise, I won’t let you down. I’ll definitely keep the books coming! Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed the read. It means the world to me.


  3. Yes I did. It was like an Easter egg at the end of movie credits. Glad I found it. Wish you well.
