Writer stuff:

Summer 2024

IngramSpark now enables direct ordering, for those who want hardcovers, or trade paperbacks that are not Amazon. I’m trying to get links for the books, a few at a time.

I’m in the slow process of getting audio recordings made of the books whose rights I control. Crown Duel is done and available. The Blood Mage Texts is also done, and Marend of Marloven Hess is finished. A Stranger to Command and Fledglings should be done later this summer.

If you’d like a promotional code for a free copy to listen to and maybe review, I still have a few left. Write to me.

Traitor, the last book in The Change series, written with Rachel Manija Brown, is finished. We have a target pub date in October of 2024. First we are relaunching the previous three, newly edited and with new covers.

Working a two-book arc set in the world of The Phoenix Feather. Sage Empress, the first book, is out, the second one to follow next month. Also trying to get the last of the missing CJ’s Notebooks typed up, for the very few who follow the adventures of the Mearsies Heili gang of girls.

My laughable attempts at marketing:

You can read a chapter a day of current projects on my Patreon and discussion of same, and other subjects.

Katie and Jordan Heroine is a new podcast. Their first episodes focus on Crown Duel.

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 only send a newsletter 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 sends occasional notes about various of my published books. (Those letters go out every six weeks or so, not a bombardment.)

Interviews

I’ve done two interviews with Fiction Fans Podcast. The most recent was about the Inda series, episode 49.

An interview at the Milford Writers’ site.

Book View Cafe

Why I link my books to Bookview Cafe:

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 for one another. 90% 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.
