All my love to my readers, it’s here now and I’ll be bringing it to you.

Find me next on December 15th, 2018 at the San Juan Island Farmer’s Market in my town of Friday Harbor, WA at the Brickworks, 10am-1pm. There will be some books at the Authors of the San Juan Islands table, and I will rove the market & sign at table. There are also plenty of delectable food samples available at this event!

Stan Lee, co-founder of the Marvel Comics Universe, passed away on 11/12, the day after Book 2: Abyss Surrounding was released. All hail, well met, great thanks, and rest in power. He looked me in the eyes and said, “Keep doing it.”

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.

Fire On All Sides hardcover

Fire Within new to Kindle

Bones of Starlight 1: Fire Within is new to Amazon Kindle!

This is the updated reissue of the first book in the trilogy, previously known as Fire On All Sides.

A note on the previous version, Fire On All Sides:
this will remain available in hardcover and paperback through major distribution channels until just after the reissue becomes available in each format.

The story remains intact, the main change being a set of singular agendered pronouns for Dragons. This partial restart was also a good opportunity to align the volume titles better with my original vision. As follows:

1: Fire Within
2: Abyss Surrounding
3: Greater Beyond

Hardcover and paperback of Fire Within are to follow this summer!, featuring the amazing artwork of Leo Shallat and Genesis Grey on the covers. I’m going to release these without my author sketches from book 1 and collect them elsewhere, in a different way.

Meanwhile, Book 2: Abyss Surrounding will continue to wrap up here on this website, with the participation (all along) of wonderful watchful editor Alex Bear of Constellation Editing.

I’m at MisCon 32 in Missoula this weekend, roving and promoting this release. I’m making some handout autograph stickers (which you can put ANYWHERE). As shown:


But there’s going to be a backing, so I can hand them out, and it’s going to take way more work than you see here! By which point, they’ll be practically precious, right.
