taking a break from the lowercase post title aesthetic I had going because TODAY IS THE RELEASE DAY FOR THE THREE THRONES AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED AND YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED TOO.
Pardon me for yelling.
But it’s just a bit surreal. I can’t help but freak out a little. Seven years of daydreaming, outlining, writing, editing, and stressing that in the end, it might not actually happen, and here we are. Continue reading “THE THREE THRONES”
You may think that writers are independent, autocratic individuals who spend hours with fingers glued to their laptop keys, hammering out words. You might think that a writer is someone who is snobbish and protective of their precious work. Someone ready to explain away every plot hole and rationalize the importance of the most minor characters.
And, yeah, you’re right. Continue reading “It Must Be Green”
I don’t think words can quite express the excitement behind those two words: it’s here.
The Realms Beyond.
Multiple years of writing, editing, rewriting, and now this thing doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you—the readers.
That’s a scary thought for an author. So I really only have a few things to say.
First, if you liked The Fiery Arrow, this is more of the same—and also completely, utterly different. It’s another adventure story full of life, discovery, and the struggles of coming-of-age. But this book feels more of mystery than anything else. Questions and plot twists at every turn. The new characters are shrouded in mysteries, and even the old ones develop in unexpected ways.
Every initial reader has told me roughly the same thing: “I loved The Fiery Arrow. But this is way better.”
So the only other things I have to say? Well, I hope you read the book, considering it’s available in basically any format your heart could desire—hardcover, paperback, Kindle. Also, if you missed book one, you can catch it for FREE on Kindle right now!
And beyond that (hah, see what I did there) the only other thing you can do is write me a review. I don’t think most readers realize how invaluable this is, especially for brand-new books. And plus, I love to hear what you thought of the story.
I think if you click the picture, it’ll speak for itself.
Major shoutout to the cast: Rachel (Arliss), Zach (Philip), Kelley (Ilayda), Courage (Erik), Meghan (Elowyn), Courtney (Clare), and Josiah (Orlando). You can thank my friend Gavin for lending his mad piano skills to the music track. Rachel deserves major thanks for all the time she put into the detailed costumes. And did you notice that map cameo?
And finally, thanks to my tripod, which proved useless in almost every single take and decided to snap in half on the last shot. Rest in peace.

And, as if this short post didn’t have enough links in it already… Pre-order the book on Kindle so you’ll be ready when December 1st gets here!
