After a bit of blog silence (writing under another name) I’m back with great news. My new novel, UNCONQUERED SON, will be available in June 2013.
The Empire teeters on the brink of collapse. A hedonistic teen assumes the throne under false pretenses while a slave rebellion erupts in the north. The southern King of Kings, sensing weakness, sets his eyes on his vulnerable foe.
In the midst of the growing tumult, a young man from the Empire’s hinterlands grudgingly heads to Imperial City. There, Claudio-Valens sees firsthand the weak, treasonous Imperial Council that aids foreign enemies, and finds himself at the center of the fight to save the country he loves.
What follows is a tale of desert queens and legionaries, of mad girls with great gifts and scheming highborn ladies, of gods both human and divine, that will forever transform the world they know.
I’m still making tweaks to the cover, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up!

Print editions of the three Ulfr Crisis books are due out soon. They aren’t currently available, but if you want a personal signed copy (follow link) you will be alerted as soon as they are.
I’m thrilled to announce that Fell Winter is now available in audiobook form at Audible and iTunes.
Kevin Killavey did a great job. We’re currently working on the next two.
As newsletter subscribers already know, I recently released the final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy. I had a blast writing it, and am happy to lead the story to its inevitable conclusion, but at the same time, a bit sad about leaving the characters and the world. Either way, here is the description.
Buy at Amazon, Kobo, and Nook:
The Ulfr conquest is complete. The towns of Badelgard lie destroyed, abandoned, or suffering under the rule of Fell Lords and their dark ladies. Against all odds, Kai Riverhall—the Dragon’s Son—seeks to put an end to the Great Witch and her eternal winter.
The final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy narrates three distinct lives.
In MY BROTHER THE MORGUIS, a man meets his long-lost sibling but begins to question his true identity. In QUEEN OF NOTHING, the new High Queen attempts to evacuate all survivors to another land. And in DRAGON’S SON, Kai makes one last effort to defeat the Great Witch before the statue of her goddess is fully pulled from its icy tomb.
I tried to think of a word to describe 2012, but it can’t be summarized too easily. It was a year of disappointments and victories, but I can’t see it as anything other than a large step forward.
I’m happy to announce that the first volume (episodes 1 to 5) of Enchanted Forest is now complete, available for purchase at all ebook vendors (except Smashwords… the slow reporting and slow uploading procedures currently frustrate me to no end, but I’ll get around to it soon).
Sales on this series started out (very) tepid, but are slowly picking up. Go forth, buy, and read, and give me the encouragement to start Volume 2! My mind brims with ideas for more episodes.
The first episode is free on Kobo.
I also made a profile of Kalamar, for those interested.
