The book is now available for pre-order. Spirit Knights 5 caps off the series. There will be more books in this world, and some of them will feature Claire, Drew, and the gang, but this arc is complete. Once you’ve read this series, you should have a solid baseline for what kind of things to expect in future books as it relates to the setting.
Boys Can’t Be Witches releases on March 27. Until that day, the ebook will be 99 cents. As a value-added bonus, book 1, Girls Can’t Be Knights, will also be 99 cents on that day, so if you haven’t started the series yet, that’s a fabulous time to do so. You’ll be able to binge all 5 books at once. Sleeping and eating are also important, though, so make sure to pause long enough for those mundane tasks.
All five of these titles, as of March 27th, will be available in ebook, print, and audiobook. I will have print copies with me starting at Norwescon in Seatac, March 29-April 1. The next weekend, I’ll be down in Portland for Saturday only of Gamestorm. Following that, I’m at Wen-con in Wenatchee, Pulicon in Puyallup, and then our very own CapitalIndieBookCon in Olympia on May 12.
Next week, the March Story of the Month will be a Knight & Witch tale taking place between books 3 (Ethereal Entanglements) and 4 (Ghost Is the New Normal), featuring Detective John Avery.
Spring will be busy around these parts!
This is Al-Kabar. It’s a story about dealing with tragedy, shouldering burdens, and learning who you are. Fakhira is a simple woman with simple wants and needs. She expects her life to be the same as her older sister’s and the same as her mother’s. Though their marriages aren’t strictly by choice, they manage to make their relationships with their husbands work. They raise children. They laugh and cook and manage their men.
Except that’s not how Fakhira’s story goes. One fell night, the whims of powerful men strip her life to nothing. She survives the attack, but can she survive what the Fires and the Water demand of her? Can she rise above the pain of loss to find purpose, a calling, and justice, or will she sink into despair and seek only revenge?
Al-Kabar is now available in ebook and print on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo. For a limited time, the ebook is only 99 cents.
Portland has a ghost problem.
Sixteen-year-old Claire wants her father back. His death left her only memories and an empty locket. After six difficult years in foster care, her vocabulary no longer includes “hope” and “trust”.
Everything changes when Justin rides his magical horse into her path and takes her under his wing. Like the rest of the elite men who serve as Spirit Knights, he hunts restless ghosts that devour the living.
When an evil spirit threatens Claire’s life, she’ll need Justin’s help to survive. And how could she bear the Knights’ mark on her soul? Everybody knows Girls Can’t Be Knights.
I’m pleased to announce that Girls Can’t Be Knights, a YA urban paranormal adventure published by Myrddin Publishing, is now available on Kobo and Amazon for pre-order. It’s set for release on June 12th, though the print book is already available from Amazon. The ebook will be 99 cents through the 18th of June.
You’ve seen the blurb before. This book leaves the stable on June 12th. It’ll be available for pre-order starting June 3rd. Girls Can’t Be Knights is packed full of stuff in a compact, easy-to-devour form. It has ghosts, family, sarcasm, daddy issues, police brutality, callous disregard for authority, sarcasm, and adorable little girls in pink tutus with stuffed unicorns.
Claire likes her socks mismatched and her memories tucked safely out of reach. Justin suffers from an excessive level of sass in his life. Together, they aren’t going to fall in love, but he will teach her what it means to be a Spirit Knight, even if it kills them both.
Chapter by Chapter, a wonderful YA blog, is running a giveaway for this book until June 4th. Good stuff.
Moon Shades is live today, for real. This is, of course, the third book in the series. The first book is The Fallen. In that first volume, we meet Chavali, a cranky fortune teller suffering from uncontrolled contact telepathy. Even better, she sometimes gets to deliver genuine prophecies against her will. Her clan surrounds her with love and laughter and (sometimes too much) attention, yet the thoughts of others press on her whether she wants them to or not, giving her a jaded, cynical view of the world.
It’s the prophecy gift (curse) that causes all the real problems. When someone whose scruples fall on the “flexible” end of the spectrum discovers her, he’ll stop at nothing to control her.
In this third installment, she begins the real adjustments to the new life that despicable man forced her into. It starts with cabin fever and snowballs into unexpected intrigue. The bodies pile up and the snow keeps falling.
I’m really happy with how the book turned out. Can you tell?
Moon Shades is available for pre-order on Amazon. I’ve never done a pre-order before. Usually, when the book is ready, I make it so. This time, the release date is May 16th, and it was ready early. To celebrate, The Fallen, as book one of a series that now has three parts, is now 99 cents for the ebook. If you’ve been waiting to pick it up until other people have something nice to say about it, this is a good time. It currently has a number of reviews, all of which are positive. As a value-added bonus, a handful or two of mistakes previously missed by our editor have been fixed.
For whatever reason, though the ebook is on pre-order, the paperback is actually available already. Apparently, having both versions work together for that would be too complicated. On the plus side, if you’re coming to Forever Knight Games in the Capital Mall in Olympia, WA on Saturday (5/16), you can have a paper copy of Moon Shades in hand courtesy of Amazon. I’ll only have one to show off. Because that’s how things work.
As with all my books, if you buy the paper version of the book from Amazon, you get the ebook version for free.
Moon Shades is done. This is the first time I’ve ever had a designated release date that falls more than a week after the point when the book is ready to go live. If you’re interested in an ARC (Advance Review Copy), head over to the Become A Fan page and sign yourself up by the end of the week. Please be aware that this ARC comes with the expectation that you’ll actually post a review of the book. It would be really great if you can manage it before the 16th on Goodreads, but I understand if you can’t read it that fast.
It can be found on Goodreads now, and will be available for sale as both an ebook and print book on May 16th.
This book follows the tradition set by Harbinger: it’s about 10,000 words longer than the previous book. There’s that much more of Chavali and the rest of your favorite Fallen agents to love. With so many words to work with, we managed to fit in nearly everyone.
This time around, the mystery Chavali has to solve comes as a surprise. She’d rather spend her time with her tiny clan, but her temper–complicated by cabin fever–gets her into trouble. You’re shocked, I know. I was shocked too. So shocked I fell out of my bean bag when I read that in Erik’s outline. It might, of course, have had something to do with my son jumping on me at that moment.
