Writer status:

Time of Daughters is now complete, and as of December 3, both halves are out there in the wild.

We’ve had rain, much-needed. I hope that abates the fire danger for a time. Never more cozy and pleasant to hear rain outside as I tackle my writing projects: finishing the last Lhind novel, and moving back up to the present-day arc in the Sartorias-deles saga.

Publication status:

Besides Time of Daughters, also out, Lily and Crown, a novella about Colend’s origin story. Of course it has a masquerade central, because Colend.

Being one of the many authors who have no skill (or budget) for marketing, I am grateful for word of mouth from readers. Lately this wonderful review came to my attention. It feels so good to have years of hard work acknowledged and appreciated by someone I’ve never met and am unlikely to ever meet, but even more wonderful is the suggestion of influence.

I’m trying to learn how to do newsletters. If you’re interested in receiving one when I have something coming out, sign up here to be notified. I promise I will only send one out when I have actual news, unless you sign up for the version that talks about various of my published books. (Those letters go out every six weeks or so, not a bombardment.)

Why I link my books here whenever I can

BVC (which offers its e-books in mobi and epub formats) was formed by a bunch of writers as a cooperative publishing effort. Books offered cross all genres, from science fiction to romance to historical to mainstream. We function as editors, copyeditors, formatters, cover artists, and site maintainers. We offer both reprints (currently in e-form, but we’re looking at print options) and new books. 95% of the proceeds go to the authors! That means that the author actually earns most of the money you pay, instead of publishers and big venues like Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

Here is our latest offering, and this is my bookshelf.
