Market prices rise and fall, but I screen-captured this milestone: the out-of-print paperback version of Book 1 has at some point tripled in resale value. Congratulations to everyone who bought a copy! I hope you have enjoyed it, and please apply any incoming reviews to the newest edition, titled Fire Within. Maybe if it’s out of print they flip the cover over, is that what happened?

Meanwhile, there remains one week of availability for the previous version hardcover, Bones of Starlight 1: Fire On All Sides. Then there will be no more of them! Great thanks to all who bought this edition, including those at my first-ever book launch event.

Upon the Pages

Today, I’m sharing a little of the journey of Fire On All Sides, Bones of Starlight Book 1. Many wonderful people have been gracious enough to leave their mark upon my work, one way or another. Sitting in front of a magnificent vintage map, here’s a glimpse of Who Hath Seen:


This page includes Patti Barker, Clay Mazing, Mike Carey, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jukey Jukebox, Divya Srinivasan, Taiyo Fujii, Ken Liu, Jessica Walch, Chief Delbert Black Fox Pomani, Likhain… and it will go on until I have a new publication in my hands.

If you didn’t know these particular names already, here are hints as to the monumental awesomeness contained herein: writer guests of honor, cultural representative, Hugo & Nebula Award winners &  artist nominee, national beatboxing champs competitor, disaster zone entertainer, comic book series author, woman about to get married, fiber artist, novel translator, puppeteer!

Asking people to sign it is my way of making sure that I retain a copy of my own book.

Audiobook Opening Song Preview

I’m excited and pleased to share with you the opening credits song that will preface the full audiobook narration for Fire On All Sides. This haunting song by Jillian Ann (as remixed by Phutureprimitive) is thematically on point with full blown intensity! You can enjoy the complete unedited version by following the picture link, and you can also explore the other remixes on Jillian Ann’s full album. This song is also a part of Phutureprimitive’s album, Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places Pt. 1.
