New Release: A Curse of Memories #ebook #books #fantasy #series

Chavali is back in The Greatest Sin book 5: A Curse of Memories. Eldrack sets her on the trail of the traitor whose actions caused a fellow agent’s death, a mission she accepts with fervor.

The ebook is 99 cents until tomorrow, when it assumes its regular price. If you’re new to the series, you can meet Chavali for the first time in The Fallen, book 1 of the series. She’s a cranky, sarcastic fraud of a fortune teller happy to fleece strangers for the benefit of her clan by telling them exactly what they want to hear.

The world of The Greatest Sin has lost its Creator and hates that fact. Chavali doesn’t care, but she’s about to get dragged, kicking and screaming, into the quest to find the Creator and bring Her back.

Cover Reveal: A Curse of Memories

The Greatest Sin #5 doesn’t just have a title. It has a cover and a release date! Bask in the glory of A Curse of Memories.

It’s pretty. Pretty epic, amIright? See what I did there? Eh? Eh?

Epic fantasy!

*cough*

Anyway…

Release date is July 11, and the ebook is currently in pre-order for 99 cents. You can find it on Amazon, Kobo, and a few other places. The price will go up on July 12th. Snap it up while it’s cheap!

If you haven’t heard of The Greatest Sin, it begins with The Fallen. Chavali, a cranky, sarcastic, and entirely fake fortune teller, hates people. Her job is dealing with them. Madness ensues. Also death, murder, abduction, magic, and prophecy. With snark. Lots and lots of snark.

New Release: Fixer #books #ebook #cyberpunk

The Darkside Seattle collection is full of grit, grime, and blood. Each novella tells the story of an important character in the setting. This second installment rises above the seedy underbelly of Seattle. Way, way above.

Victoria Godhand’s father built Godhand International Incorporated from the ground up. She’s been his right hand since she was sixteen. Now thirty-one, she’s the Chief Nepotism Officer and busts her ass to get things done in the glitzy world at the top.

As you might expect, things do go as well as she’d like.

Fixer is available on Amazon in ebook and paperback.

This collection isn’t a series. The stories can be read in any order. If you missed the first installment, Street Doc is available on Amazon. I’m expecting to release the third installment, Mechanic, by the end of the year.

I use a separate pseudonym for this collection because it’s different from everything else I write, and it’s not at all appropriate for kids. If you love my YA, this is not that. It’s nothing like that at all. If you want something else like Spirit Knights, try the Maze Beset trilogy of superhero fiction instead.

Cheers!

Release Day! #ebook #books #NewRelease #YA

Portland has a mutant cockroach problem.

Book 4 of the Spirit Knights series is a real thing, not just a cover anymore. The pre-order has been 99 cents, and the actuality is now still 99 cents until I wake up tomorrow morning (3/22) and change it to regular price.

Ghost Is the New Normal picks up where Ethereal Entanglements left off, finishing up the Thanksgiving weekend. Now, even more to be thankful for! If you’re new to the series, the series kicks off with Girls Can’t Be Knights. This series is also available in audiobook. Book 4’s audio releases one week from today, on the 28th.

And remember, be kind to your indies: leave reviews! You don’t have to wax poetic or barf out paragraphs about it, just leave a sentence or two about the things you loved (or hated) the most.

Cheers!

Cover Reveal and Pre-Order: Ghost Is the New Normal

sk4ecover

Book 4 is a real thing with a real release date: March 21, 2017. It has a pre-order at only 99 cents (this price will only last until March 22!), and it’s all ready to go so I can have copies in hand for Norwescon (Seatac, April 13-16). The audiobook is scheduled for release one week later, on March 28. I’m excited about this one because it has giant mutant cockroaches. And also ghosts and dragons, of course.

Claire has a big problem, Drew has a smaller problem, and Justin gets to have some fun. Iulia causes trouble. Avery is sensible. Enion remains adorable and Tariel is still the only real grownup in the room. If you’re new to this series, check out where it begins with Girls Can’t Be Knights, available in ebook, paperback, and audio!

With this book’s release on the horizon, I can now also officially state for the record that the Spirit Knights series will have a total of 5 books. That’s right, Number Five will be Number Last for the series. But that’s not the last you’ll see of Claire, Drew, Justin, and the rest of the crew. Claire and Justin kind of already aren’t Spirit Knights anymore, you see. I freely admit that this series began with a book I wasn’t expecting to make into a series. It’s gone places I didn’t really foresee. As such, the series title doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense anymore.

Which is why, following book 5 of Spirit Knights, I’m shifting to a different line of attack with this stuff. There will be more stories, some about Claire and some not. They’ll all take place in the same world where Portland is extra-weird. But they won’t all take place in Portland, or even in the PNW. I’m looking forward to spending time with the kind of people affected by [spoiler] [spoiler], and [spoiler].

#Cyberpunk New Release: Introducing Darkside Seattle

I’m tired.

Between the start of a new school year, a bunch of conventions, finalizing a few projects, and driving a lot (still! again!), September has been quite a month. Here’s the cool thing I’ve been working on for a while without saying one effing word about it:

Ladies and gentlemen, meet my new cyberpunk novella series. Darkside Seattle is a character-driven series of origin stories depicting a grim, cybered future full of complex people who want to be good guys. Government surveillance is cranked up to 11, the rich are very rich, and the poor eat PROCESSED FOOD PRODUCT.

Hideo had everything–a beautiful wife and daughter, a penthouse suite, and a career as a highly skilled surgeon. Emphasis on “had”. Now he’s stuck where no one wants to be: Darkside Seattle. Crumbled buildings, broken roads, and failed lives litter his struggle to find a way out of this mess.

Now available on Amazon!

I plan for this series to have 8 novellas and at least 2 novels over the next few years. It has supplanted Chowndie, the book that may never be, in my priority list. I still hope it can come together, but I’ve accepted the fact it’s just not working. But this series is. With luck, I’ll have the second installment this winter, and both Spirit Knights book 4 and The Greatest Sin book 5 this spring.

New Releases and Excitement! #free #ebooks

This past Tuesday, Ethereal Entanglements released. This is book 3 of Spirit Knights, a young adult, paranormal, modern fantasy series about ghost hunting in Portland. Book 4 will have to wait a little while, as I have some other projects with deadlines to deal with. Hopefully, Ghost Is the New Normal will be out in time for Norwescon 2017.

If you missed it, Girls Can’t Be Knights rocketed up the Amazon charts to reach subcategory bestseller status on June 15-17 as a result of some professional promotions work, and it’s now in a whole lot more hands than it was before. I need reviews, though! If you’ve read it, please leave a review. A sentence or two is fine.

I also need reviews of book 2, Backyard Dragons. Comment with a link to your review of Knights–because book 2 has a much better grounding if you’ve read book 1!–and I’ll find a way to get you a review copy of Dragons for free. And if you’ve read Backyard Dragons already, link me to that review and I’ll get you a copy of Ethereal Entanglements. This is a limited time offer, available until July 20.

In other news, Illusive Echoes, book 4 of The Greatest Sin, releases on June 28. This series is epic fantasy intended for the older, adultier crowd. Not because it’s filled with sex and violence (some violence, no sex at all and only minor romance threads), but because Chavali is in her mid-twenties and her issues aren’t teenager issues. I would’ve read it as a teenager and been cool with it, but I was a precocious reader.

Book 4 brings tragedy to Chavali. Again. She’s on the warpath, looking for justice. Or maybe revenge. The spirits torment in new and exciting ways, and she has only her wits, crankiness, and sharp eyes to deal with that and more.

For this series, I’m also offering free copies of book 2 in exchange for reviews of book 1. Book 1 is The Fallen, an origin story for Chavali, who really thinks it’s none of your business. Book 2 is Harbinger, a mystery set in the coastal city of Ket, with plague, murder, and magic. If you’ve already read book 2, link me to your review and I’ll set you up with book 3, Moon Shades. And if you’ve already read that, the same goes for a review being worth a free copy of book 4. Like the Spirit Knights series, this offer expires on July 20.

Happy reading and reviewing!
