March 31st, 2014
As usual, I’m forgetting to update this page. I have two new novels out since the last update and Republic, a follow-up to the Emperor’s Edge series, is due out in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out Wounded, a contemporary mystery, and Balanced on the Blade’s Edge, a fantasy/steampunk romance. Both of those links have excerpts of the first couple of chapters.
January 4th, 2014
That Flash Gold story is still in the works, but I have three new novellas out that take place in Nuria and introduce some new characters (there will be novels to follow). I’ll also have a contemporary mystery/love story coming out in a couple of weeks.
In early March, look for a new novel featuring Amaranthe, Sicarius, and many of the others. It’s called Republic, and I’m close to finishing the first draft.
September 22nd, 2013
If you’re ready for the start of a new series, check out the first Rust & Relics novel, Torrent. I’m also working on a new Flash Gold story that should release later this fall.
July 14th, 2013
Forged in Blood I is out and II is coming next weekend! This last story will conclude the Emperor’s Edge story arc, but I’m putting up a poll where people can vote and offer feedback as to whether there should be more stories set in this world (and with which characters).
May 8th, 2013
I’ve divided the Emperor’s Edge finale into two books, Forged in Blood I and II, and the first one is in my editor’s hands right now. I expect to have it ready to publish within the next two weeks. I’m writing Part 2 while she edits the first, and I plan to have it out at the end of the summer.
March 12th, 2013
I see I’ve been neglecting this page again. Bad author! Not only is Decrypted, the new sequel to Encrypted, available, but I published an Emperor’s Edge novella in January too. Beneath the Surface takes place between Books 5 and 6 (forthcoming), continuing the adventure from Sgt. Yara’s point of view (and, of course, there’s some Amaranthe and Sicarius action in there too).
I’m also 50,000 words into the first draft of EE6 and I’m shooting for a May/June publication date.
November 4th, 2012
Darn, no helpful sprites or faeries updated this page for me this fall. Well, let me do so belatedly. Blood and Betrayal (EE5) is out. I’ll also be publishing Enigma (a short story with Rias and Tikaya from Encrypted) this weekend. I’m hard at work on Decrypted (the full-length sequel to Engima) and am writing a new Emperor’s Edge novella for NaNoWriMo, so look for that in December or January (it doesn’t have a title yet, but it’ll be from Sgt. Yara’s point of view and will take place between Books 5 & 6)
August 3rd, 2012
I’m doing the final edits on Emperor’s Edge 5 (Blood and Betrayal) and am on schedule for a September launch. In the meantime, I’ve posted a Sicarius background story on my blog, so take a peep if you’re a fan of the assassin: Shadows over Innocence.
April 27th, 2012
Conspiracy, Book 4 in The Emperor’s Edge series, is out! (Click for an excerpt and purchase links)
March 3rd, 2012
In other news, I decided to stay independent after receiving a publishing offer from the 47North SF/F/H imprint at Amazon. The details are here. Thank you for your support and help with making the decision!
January 20th, 2012
The Assassin’s Curse, a short story with Amaranthe and Sicarius, is out. I’m trying to finish the rough draft of the fourth Emperor’s Edge novel by the end of January, and then February and March will be big editing months. I’m determined to get Peacemaker out soon, and then I hope to have EE4 ready for release in the spring.
November 23rd, 2011
Deadly Games is out! The rough draft of Flash Gold 3 (Peacemaker) is done, and I’m starting in on the first draft of the fourth Emperor’s Edge book.
October 15th, 2011
I’m working on the final edits for the third Emperor’s Edge novel (Deadly Games) and plan to send it off to my editor in a couple of weeks. Look for the ebook to come out in mid-November.
August 20th, 2011
Hunted, the sequel to Flash Gold, is out! Click the link to read the first ten pages.
I’m working on The Emperor’s Edge Book 3 (no official title yet) and hope to get it out by Christmas.
I’ve also started a Facebook author page, so if you’re a FB user, stop by and say hello. Thanks!
June 12th, 2011
Dark Currents is out! Click the link to read the first chapter and/or pick up a copy. Thanks!
May 22nd, 2011
I have the cover art back for Dark Currents, and the manuscript is off to the editor for proofreading. If all goes well, it should be out in early June. In the meantime, you can check out the first chapter here.
April 1st, 2011
March 16th, 2011
I’ve finished a rough draft of Dark Currents, AKA Emperor’s Edge Book 2. Lots of editing to do, but I look forward to tackling it. I’ve also written a short steampunk novella set in the Klondike during the gold rush days, and that will come out in a few weeks as a $0.99 ebook.
I have a podiobook version of Emperor’s Edge coming out (not sure on the date yet, but it should be in the next couple months), so you’ll be able to listen to chapters on iTunes or Podiobooks.com.
In non-writing news, I’ve added a newsletter to the website! If you want to know the day a new ebook is released (and maybe before), then this is where to be.
February 10th, 2011
To answer the question several people have been kind enough to ask, yes, Emperor’s Edge is the beginning of a series, and, yes, I’m working on Book 2 right now! It’s still in the rough-draft stage, but I’m hoping to start editing next month and have it online by the end of spring.
