Book Progress Report

The draft of Clawing for the Crowns is done. If all goes well it will be released next year, probably in late spring. It continues the story of House Szárkány-Kárpátok through the end of WWI and the first events following the Treaty of Versailles.


István’s war as an army Colonel was just the beginning. Now he must keep the House together through the hunger years and the chaos of the Empire’s slow collapse. Treachery outside the Habsburg Empire’s borders and dissention within may doom House Szárkány along with the Empire. István Eszterházy will need all his strength, the help of the Powers, and a large dollop of luck as the world crashes down around him
