WARFARE

I’m writing a series of historical romance epics called Warfare, set in a re-imagination of the Edo period in Japan. Stay up to date with the latest by subscribing to Madi Grace!

Here are the first three books I’m focusing on, but there will be at least a total of six.

As always, I believe in creating God-honoring moral fiction that points to Jesus with excellency, never cheesiness. The Warfare series has no extreme violence, foul language, or inappropriate scenes, though I ask a maturity level of 12-13+ or a parents’ permission in beta reading signup forms.

WARFARE BOOK I: ONE OF THEM

All kunoichi warrior Ari Kireina wants is for someone to deem her worth something. But when she willingly fails her most important mission yet, she ends up on the run and then finally on the hunt for the man she failed, deems her worthless, and wants her most—with the help of a samurai warrior torn between his hatred and his love for her.

Status: Making final updates on scene outline

Drafted: Four times

Will begin writing 5th draft: January 1st, 2018

Beta reading: Signups open early May 2018

Cover: By Madison Lorfing

Alpha reading by invite only.

WARFARE BOOK II: PURSUIT OF NO ONE

When samurai warrior Hinoki Ajin’omoto disappears out of the blue, desperate and love-driven kunoichi warrior Ari Kireina gives up everything to start the hunt. Finding the man who holds her worth is easier said than done, however, when his friends who want to help also happen to be her enemies, and she’s up against the most ruthless bounty hunter Japan has ever known.

Status: On pause

Drafted: Once

Will begin writing 2nd draft: January 1st, 2019

Beta reading: Signups open early May 2019

Cover: By Sarah

WARFARE BOOK III: REASON ENOUGH

After finding the man she was striving to save, kunoichi warrior Ari Kireina tries to break it to herself that Hinoki Ajin’omoto might not hold her worth after all. But when her master’s dirty secrets come to light, she’s forced to fight with Hinoki side-by-side against the teacher she loved most; making her realize why she fell in love with Hinoki in the first place and Who truly does have reason enough to deem her priceless.

Status: Not started yet, but I’ve done a ton of daydreaming.

Drafted: Not yet

Will begin writing 1st draft: January 1st, 2020

Beta reading: Signups open early May 2020

Cover: By Madison Lorfing

    Madi!! Seriously stop killing me. I’m afraid my patience has not developed enough for me to make it all the way to 2020. I will probably officially die somewhere between chapters 1 and 2 of book 1.
    🙂 But keep killing me. 🙂

      But killing you is FUN! >:) Awww, I really hope you’ll like it!!

      Alpha readers read the book while it’s being written, while beta readers read it afterward. I’m still debating on how many people I want to alpha, but I’ll let you know! Of course, without a doubt, I AM BEGGING YOU TO BETA, PLEASE.

      HEHE SECRETS. SPOILER ALERT Kira used to be someone immoral, goes to prison, finds God in prison, and eventually gets saved, blah blah I just spoiled the next four books for you whoops. XD

    How do we join the beta reading? It sounds fun!

    • Madi December 17, 2017 at 7:40 pm - Reply

      In early Mayish of 2018, I’ll have a whole post explaining everything and including a signup form, and that’s it! I’d love to have you beta read!

  14. AAG December 18, 2017 at 5:37 pm - Reply

    Aye, in 2020 I’ll be 12. Does that mean I could FINALLY read it? Well, Warfare Book I and II will be best-selling in Barnes and Noble next to my dad’s book by then.

    • Madi December 19, 2017 at 12:32 pm - Reply

      You could probably read it sooner; in the beta-reading signup forms, if you’re younger than 12 or 13, you just have to ask a parent. They’ll know whether you’re mature enough or whatever or if they’re comfortable with you reading it. I for one think you’d probably be able to read it! And AWWWW, HEHE.

      • AAG December 19, 2017 at 12:53 pm - Reply

        :o…… YESH! I DONT HAVE TO WAIT A MILLION YEARS! Also, did you see my dad’s book??

        • Madi December 20, 2017 at 2:41 pm - Reply

          You know what is SO. WEIRD? I had a HUGE dream last night where I was at Barnes and Nobles and I say multiple of your dad’s books! XD

          • AAG December 20, 2017 at 3:28 pm - Reply

            Oh wow! That’s cool, I’ll have to tell him!
