On Sunday October 21st at 2pm, I’m holding a special release party for Roar of Sky at Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona. You can get the finale of my trilogy two days before the actual release date, plus you can buy most all of my other books there and get them signed, PLUS I’ll bring cookies.

More info can be found here!

If you can’t attend in person, this event still might be relevant to your interests: Poisoned Pen ships worldwide. If you want to order ANY of my books signed, they can get those books to you. That includes Roar of Sky, still fragrant of fresh ink. I’ll sign all long-distance orders after my event is done.

Poisoned Pen is dear to my heart and needs love and support. Hey, look around their website and you’ll likely find other signed books to order, too. They have an incredible selection.

Four Months Until ROAR OF SKY is Out–and I Need Help!

Posted by on Jun 23, 2018 in Blog, breath of earth, call of fire, roar of sky | Comments Off on Four Months Until ROAR OF SKY is Out–and I Need Help!

 

Four months from today, Roar of Sky will be released. As you likely know, Amazon is (for better or worse) the biggest bookseller in the world, and reviews and ratings on there matter. The higher those numbers, the more that Amazon’s algorithms will favor the books.

That’s where you, my awesome readers, can be a huge help. Breath of Earth and Call of Fire need more ratings and reviews on Amazon. Have you read one or both? Are they in your to-read pile–and can you get to them soon? My hope is that in the next month, by July 23rd:

Breath of Earth will reach at least 50 reviews

Call of Fire will reach at least 20 reviews

Please note that I’m not asking for 5-star reviews. I want honest feedback from people who have read the books. Judge them as you will. If you share your reviews on Facebook or Twitter, tag me, and maybe I can share them in turn!

Thank you!

COVER DEBUT: Roar of Sky

Posted by on Mar 19, 2018 in Blog, roar of sky | Comments Off on COVER DEBUT: Roar of Sky

This is it! The cover of the third and final volume in my Blood of Earth trilogy from Harper Voyager. Roar of Sky comes out on October 23rd and it’s already available to preorder at places like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and awesome indies like Poisoned Pen! Also… the back cover copy is now online, too! Scroll down to read.

BEHOLD!

 

 

In this stunning conclusion to the acclaimed Blood of Earth trilogy—a thrilling alternate history laced with earth magic, fantastic creatures, and steampunk elements—the young geomancer Ingrid must find a way to use her extraordinary abilities to save her world from the woman hell-bent on engineering a war that would rip it to pieces.

Thanks to her geomantic magic, Ingrid has successfully eluded Ambassador Blum, the evil genius behind the plan to achieve world domination for the United Pacific. But using her powers has taken its toll: Ingrid’s body has been left severely weakened, and once again she is on the run with her friends Cy and Fenris.

Hoping to learn more about her magical roots and the strength her bloodline carries, Ingrid makes her way across the Pacific to Hawaii, home to the ancient earth goddess Madame Pele. What she discovers in this paradise is not at all what she expects—but perhaps exactly what she needs to find the strength to face Blum.

But Ambassador Blum comes from the same world of old magic. She is a kitsune with near-mythic power. And if Ingrid cannot defeat her once and for all, she knows Blum will use that power to take the lives of everyone she holds dear before igniting a war that will bring the entire world to its knees.

Release date: October 23rd, 2018
