With 2021 coming to an end, and having just wrapped up reading Jati’s Wager, I have finished my year in reading (aka, there’s no way I can finish a book in 2 weeks.) Check out my Goodreads Year in Review It was an awesome year of adventures and stories. I enjoyed pretty much all of these books. Now, I am organizing these based on reading them this year, they may have come… Read More

As usual, the Holidays can be a hectic time. There’s been a lot going on, so I figured it was time for another update! At the Threshold of the Universe has passed it’s biggest edit, and now it’s getting a final look from two last beta readers, one being my Deaf Community consultant. Jason will be starting up illustrating soon, and Daniel will begin the cover design late January. We sort of… Read More

I am floored by this post by B-Man at the Tipsy Trope! He went the extra mile and created a really cool video in honor of In the Orbit of Sirens, with a delicious drink pairing he invented called the Ganymedean Whiskey Moon, based on the Arrow Whiskey the Castus family enjoys in the novel. B-Man has a bunch of excellent content, and I encourage you to check out his channel for… Read More

All songs end… Coming in early 2022.Catch up with In the Orbit of Sirens and On the Winds of Quasars.

I wanted to take some time and give a little more detail about this beautiful map Jason Michael Hall created for On the Winds of Quasars. Jason and I discovered making a map is REALLY HARD. It’s 100% lore-based. Literally, it’s the physical embodiment of world-building for a novel. We ended up bouncing a lot of ideas and details off each other, back and forth. So, being coworkers who worked in previsualization… Read More

And so ends another fantastic tour! On the Winds of Quasars entered the world to a great welcome party! Each of the hosts did a fantastic job, and their reviews and photos tugged at my heartstrings. I can’t thank the people over at Storytellers on Tour enough for putting this together. Justine and Timy are the best! Here’s a collection of the beautiful photos the hosts took this week: Some of the… Read More

Books I’ve read in 2021 so far MEGA THREAD I’ve been so busy finishing up On the Winds of Quasars and editing Book 3 of the Song of Kamaria trilogy that I have been falling behind in book content!

It’s been a busy month! I finally revealed On the Winds of Quasars, so now I can stop calling it “book 2” which is great. Earlier in April I finished my post-beta edit of On the Winds of Quasars. It’s currently in the hands of Dylan Garity, who is returning in an expanded role from his previous editing of In the Orbit of Sirens. I love working with Dylan, and I look… Read More
