"I am extremely pleased," stated Kaelin, "with the critical success of this fantasy novel. Progeny was written to draw the reader into a vibrant, vivid world full of characters as substantive as any living person. The goal was to have the tale flow seamlessly from the first chapter, picking up and sweeping reader and characters alike into a masterfully woven, tidal epic. I wanted loyalty and love to contrast with scheming and treachery, combining together to create a richly rewarding journey full of both joy and heartache. When the last line is completed, I wanted the readers of the first entry in The Children of the White Lions series to demand to know what comes next. I believe I have achieved that goal."

Progeny has been compared to Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. Interest in the book has been high for this fantasy book, and R.T.

Excerpts From Reviews of Print Edition:
"Anyone who enjoys adventure stories or magical and paranormal I would suggest you give this a try. For me, Progeny is in league with both The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings and far better than Harry Potter - Progeny has a wealth of depth to it that I haven't seen in many books." - Clover Hill Book Reviews

"Overall, I would favorably compare his writing with Brandon Sanderson, Scott Lynch, (early) Robert Jordan and even a bit of David Eddings flavor mixed in. I really enjoyed this book and my biggest disappointment is going to be waiting for the next installment." -C. Shadis, reviewer at

"The disparate characters we meet along the way are intriguing and richly nuanced, reminding one of Tolkien's without being derivative. This is a big book and a big world, surprisingly well conceived for a first novel. I very much look forward to the next book in the series, and I strongly encourage Mr. Kaelin to keep writing." -D Kistner, Associate Editor of FutureCycle Press

R.T. Kaelin grew up in Cincinnati and now resides in Pickerington, Ohio with his wife and two children. He works in the information technology field in Columbus. He realizes that the traditional method of publishing involves a high amount of luck and, not wishing to have his high fantasy novel bogged down in the traditional publishing business model, he decided to follow the path of self-publishing. His gamble has paid off as evidenced by the success of his fantasy novel, Progeny.

Representatives of national publishers are encouraged to contact R.T. Kaelin to discuss acquiring publishing rights.
