  Paul H. Kogel's Success Story
It was while working with a very close friend, helping him develop the storyline for a novel he was going to write, that I began to develop a storyline of my own. At that time, I thought the story would be called The Isle of Dylar.

The story centered around two main characters. The hero’s name was Antis and his enemy's name was Karryn. As the story began to take shape it soon became clear that what I had before me was little more than a maze of confusion. I came to realize that the story could not be told, with any hope of clarity, between the covers of a single book. Therefore, I decided to tell the story of Antis in one book and the story of Karryn in a second book.

It was back to the development stage all over again. Soon what emerged was The Mage of Dylar, which told the story of Antis while developing the background and setting the stage for its prequel called, The Tale of Karryn. This is truly an example of how a second book becomes the first.

Thus, The Dylarian Chronicles was born. Each book stands alone and it is not necessary to read both books in order to come away with a full understanding of each story individually. In other words, each book has its own beginning and complete ending. When I finally got the time, and the nerve, to begin writing The Mage of Dylar it was late in the year of 2002. Around January or February of 2004, while the book was still going through the dreaded editing and rewrite stage, I began work on The Tale of Karryn. I finally finished the two book series around November of 2005 and set The Tale of Karryn into its editing/rewrite stage.

While all of this was going on, I went through about a year of writing short stories while developing my third novel. I have presently finished the first six chapters of The Crystal Serpent – Child of Promise.

I sincerely hope you will enjoy my books as well as my short stories. Please feel free to drop me a line – I’d love to hear from you. Thank you and “…fairday, you readers of Dylar…” as Benyorn the Scrivener would say.
