Time has moved on since writing the LORE Series, and thus it’s intriguing now to go back and rediscover the journey, and dedications form part of that. As discussed for the Arcana four, here, too, is a tale.
Again, as the journey commences in The Kallanon Scales, it is family that deserves praise:
In The Nemisin Star, acknowledgement goes to the tools of magic, and those tools include you, reader, for it is you who feels the magic.
For The Sleeper Sword, again family triumphs! While it is a truth that family doesn’t often read our stories, their faces and personalities serve as inspiration.
The Dreamer Stones is the largest volume in the LORE Series, and in some way, for me, was the most intense writing experience. Guess that’s why it’s dedicated to all …
I have made a massive change regarding the Lore Short Stories. You may recall that a number of shorts were published (and collated into Rainbows and Portals):
These have now been unpublished, and covers, blurbs and links have been removed from this site. Rainbows and Portals is still temporarily available in print.
Why the changes?
Because there was more to add, and too many short tales were not streamlined.
To create a holistic read, which includes the short stories above, along with a number of extra excerpts that certainly flesh out the whole, Song of the Spaces is now live as an eBook and in paperback. It’s a far larger read than before, because pertinent notes create a more seamless story, and the order allows for readers who haven’t yet read the LORE Series to understand more.
Do pop on over to look!
SONG OF THE SPACES
Lore of Reaume. as with Arcana, has more to it than the obvious. Yes, The Kallanon Scales is about dragons (‘scales’ gives it away!) and The Nemisin Star is indeed about a particular star, while The Sleeper Sword reminds of other legends where a sword awaits a particular hand, and The Dreamer Stones will enter dream territory.
But there is more:
- the dragon legend is about prophecy and time
- the star shining so bright on one night only is about connection
- to succeed, one needs a helping hand, even a hero
- enter the labyrinth of the mind … and heart

Water IS life; we all know this and no one disputes it. Yet, for the purposes of our Lore insight, water being life is taken many steps further. The first sacred site raised on a new world is the one in homage of the life-giving waters of the planet, called the Lifesource.
Halon, in The Master Mechanism, asks himself, What do these Vallas know? Why don’t they stay dead?
Well, shall I tell you why? Um, no, that would mean a whole book! Therefore, given the precedent exists even in Lore, if by another name, Happy Halloween!
