Writer stuff:

I recovered the rights to SPY PRINCESS, which came out the first of September.

During a good portion of February Rachel Manija Brown and I got all the rest of TRAITOR, book four in THE CHANGE series, plotted out, and we wrote a huge segment. We would have finished by now but for social isolation–we work best in the same room, where we can talk out the story sentence by sentence. We will try the ZOOM method over winter.

Working on a completely new project, unrelated to anything else, as an experiment.

Book stuff:

Thank you to those who write asking about the rest of The Rise of the Alliance arc. Enough have asked for me to mention here that I have no idea when DAW will get to it, or even if. Will post when I do know; in the meantime, yes the books are already written, just clogged at the publishing bottleneck.

The third and last Lhind book, Lhind the Firebird, was a May release.

Besides Time of Daughters I and II, 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. Here is a review that pretty much made my year.

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.
