Summer Update! And Sales!

As usual, August is happening! Newsletter subscribers already know the deets but just in case you haven't opened up your issue of the Amaliad yet--

You've got about a day left to grab HONOR AMONG ORCS for just 99 cents!


and the rest of the month to get HELEN OF SPARTA for just 1.99!


(Yes! I broke down and made e-reader mock-ups for a few books and a new promo image for Helen! Huzzah!)

While you're in a bronze age place, did I mention I released Ariadne and the Beast? It's a short story set about 30 years or so before HELEN OF SPARTA, and as you might imagine, addresses that pesky Minotaur situation of Theseus's.

It's too short to do a print edition but I finally bit the bullet and made it some cover art and formatted it as cleanly as I could manage for easier reading than just the pdf edition that newsletter subscribers get for free. Even better, it's available in wide release, so--
iBooks, Nook, and Kobo readers: Rejoice!!

But of course you can also grab your copy from Amazon for Kindle, too! Just 1.99 across all platforms.

And now I need to go crawl back into the writing cave and catch myself back up--3.5K so far this month is not going to be getting any jobs done. But after last month's 37K blow-out, I think I deserved the short birthday break!!

If you want more regular updates than the occasional "whoops I haven't blogged in a while have I?" be sure you're subscribed to The Amaliad and you'll get the latest and greatest delivered directly to your inbox.

Imaginary Friends Release Day!

Kindle | Goodreads
HAPPY THOR'S DAY! Celebrate with a fun Thor-ish read from me!

Grab your much-easier-to-read copy of Imaginary Friends for kindle, and enjoy it as a perfect waiting-room-read the next time you're trying not to get coughed on at the doctor's office! Or, you know, wherever!

And don't forget to add it on Goodreads, too!

This month's Newsletter went out today, also, with a sneak peek behind the scenes of Orc 3 (yes! A full scene that I had to cut while drafting! Because sometimes it takes me a few chapters to figure out where I'm supposed to have started!), and a giveaway for an e-edition of Facets of Fate. Which might be another reason to get your subscribe on to The Amaliad, because those Newsletter giveaways have phenomenal odds for the people entering--so few of you do!

Also, while I've got you here, just another reminder that FORGED BY FATE is still FREE pretty much everywhere. So if you haven't dipped your toe in to my Fate of the Gods trilogy, now really is a great time to give it a go. And of course if you're already a fan, I'd super appreciate any honest reviews you want to throw Amazon's way! Particularly for Facets of Fate, Beyond Fate, and Fate Forgotten!

What else?

Oh, just noodling around with a variety of just-for-fun projects. Like a Paris of Troy epilogue to By Helen's Hand because watching Troy: Fall of a City frustrated me so much--you can find my spoileriffic live-tweeted feelings on that over yonder:


But the timing is actually pretty good because this month, HELEN OF SPARTA and BY HELEN'S HAND are both on sale for just $1.99 each (kindle only), so if like me, you found Paris to be suuuuper annoying in TROY: FALL OF A CITY, allow me to humbly suggest that you might find my interpretation a little more to your liking!

Buy Now!
That should catch you all up pretty well--but don't forget to subscribe to The Amaliad to stay even MORE up to date and get peeks at what I'm working on, here and there. Especially your favorite Orc Saga!

And if you've enjoyed THE QUEEN AND HER BROOK HORSE while you wait for Orc3--please do toss it a review, as well! Because ultimately: Reviews=More Sales=I get to keep writing more books for you, and I'm pretty sure that's an end result we all want to support!

Imaginary Friends Available for Pre-Order

Goodreads | Kindle Pre-order

Remember that short story I wrote and serialized for the blog? It's finally getting repackaged for kindle, and you can pre-order it for 99 cents! It'll still be available to read for free on the blog, (because it seems like a lot of bother to delete it from everywhere I put up links, mostly) so if you're happy to read it that way, you still can--but if you'd rather get it in a more easily digestible format, it releases on THOR'S DAY April 19th!

And credit again goes to Caitlin Greer for the fab cover art!

Quick reminder to newsletter subscribers--March's issue of The AMALIAD is in your inboxes, and you only have until April 15th to follow the link inside and download your FREE pdf edition of The Queen and her Brook Horse! Soooooo. Now or never!!!

If you're NOT a newsletter subscriber, The Queen and her Brook Horse is available as a kindle ebook for just 2.99, or in paperback for 9.95!

However you go about enjoying this Orc Saga novella, please do consider dropping a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads after you've finished reading!

As far as other updates go, I've been double-sick with a double-ear-infection so mostly I have just been binge-watching Gilmore Girls from the discomfort of my bed, volume turned up to a million because my ears have been plugged like whoa and I've only just recovered my hearing finally and at last in ONE ear. I feel like this pretty much sums up March for me right now, but I have a few Gilmore Girls thoughts:


  • LOL LOL LOL LOL Super quick and easy half hour commute from Hartford to New Haven.
  • LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL Super quick and easy 1 hour 20 minute commute from New Haven to NYC by CAR. I don't know if you've ever tried to get ANYWHERE in the NYC direction by car on a Sunday afternoon from the Connecticut direction but. It deffffffffinitely takes longer than an hour and a half. Especially if you're on the wrong side of the Q bridge. Which somehow no one ever gets stuck on or has to harriedly merge across in this show and that is flat out unrealistic in every respect.
  • Where is the Luke and Lorelei fanfic filled with all their small intimate romantic domestic moments because I need that in novel form like yesterday.

So that's me!

Wishing you all a lovely Passover/Easter/belated Equinox!
