Salmon and the Hazel

Hey all! Here we are, once again, in Rowan Harbor. Salmon and the Hazel is available today on Amazon, and it’s Jesse and Sean’s last book. Just one more to go in the cycle, and we’ll be done…

Salmon and the Hazel

Jesse’s only priority in life is protecting the people he loves, so he’s determined to see Rowan Harbor’s wards rebuilt. There’s just one problem: they’re missing an ingredient that can’t be ordered online.

Jesse volunteers to search for the missing component in the realm of the fae, but his boyfriend, Sean, isn’t letting him go alone. The town has an enemy among the fae, so they’ll need to keep a low profile. Along their way, they find unexpected allies, surprising enemies, and a whole host of problems.

The journey is a test of their endurance, but also of their relationship and their faith in each other. Can they find what they need and get back home in one piece in time for the summer solstice?

How Often Do You Get To Say Penultimate?

So here I am yesterday, announcing that the next Lords of the Underworld book is coming out next month, and the voice of common sense that I usually squash mercilessly whispers in the back of my head, “you never told people when the next Rowan Harbor book is coming out.”

And dang it, I didn’t.

So here we go guys, the next Rowan Harbor book? Is actually coming out before Patron of Mercy. So without any further wait, here’s the (late) announcement:

Jesse’s final book, and the penultimate book in the Rowan Harbor Cycle, Salmon and the Hazel, coming July 4th!

Wolf and the Holly in Audio!

Wolf and the Holly is now available in audio, many thanks to the lovely folks at Tantor. Like Blackbird in the Reeds, it’s voiced by the talented Chris Chambers. I look forward to hearing his take on Fox and Birch next!

Brand New Year, Same Old Sam

Hey, guys!

It seems almost compulsory to write a New Year post, either to recap one’s accomplishments from the year passing, or to talk about goals in the coming year. I figured… who am I to buck the trend?

Last year was a big one for me: I finally got my degree, wrote six novels and published four of them, starting what I firmly believe is going to be the last career I’ll ever have. It’s the only one I ever wanted, after all.

I don’t know how anyone else feels, but I have high hopes for 2018. My first book of the year, Blackbird in the Reeds, is coming out on the 4th of January, and the second in its series is already in edits. I hope to release the entire series this year, as well as a few other projects I’ve been working on, and maybe even one that’s still just a series of related ideas.

2017 was bad in the ways I expected, and incredible in ways I didn’t foresee. I’ve made a few friends I think are in it for the long haul, and a few changes in my life that are going to help me keep writing for years to come. I’ve had successes I didn’t expect, and learned from my failures when they happened. All I can hope is that this year will be even better.

I am going to write so many books this year, you guys. So many books. And it’s going to be the most fun yet.
