IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS is officially an #SPSFC Finalist! I’m honored to have made it this far. This contest has been amazing. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many new book bloggers and enjoyed reading their reviews of Sirens. Contests like this don’t exist, and it’s incredible to be part of this first iteration. HUGE thank you to Hugh Howey and Duncan Swan for setting this up! VIEW ALL FINALISTS… Read More

We are GO for LAUNCH! Final formatting has been completed and all the files have been uploaded. It’s a beautiful book, made by a team I thoroughly enjoyed working with. I can’t wait for it to be released into the world on May 31st. Mid-June, there will be a Digital Book Tour hosted by Escapist Book Tours for At the Threshold of the Universe, stay tuned for more info on that. In… Read More

We’re coming to the end of this grand journey. Last night, I applied all the notes I got from my Copy Editor, while constantly shouting “I’m so sorry, Dylan!” the entire time. I had mucked up some continuity with how dialogue is portrayed (specifically when two people are having conversations telepathically, sci-fi is fun.) Dylan was professional and patient, and he hasn’t found me yet to strangle me for what I put… Read More

Version 1 was 332 pages in Word, but it was about 760 pages in reality due to the word count. I didn’t realize how massive of an edit I would be making after this milestone. After about 7 full edit passes later, I widdled SIRENS down by about 30,000 words. Cut content included: -A full description of Eliana and her father preparing and embarking for Kamaria, originally they were involved in the… Read More

At long last, we’ve arrived AT THE THRESHOLD OF THE UNIVERSE, where all songs end. I’m so proud to show off this concluding cover to the Song of Kamaria trilogy. Artist Daniel Schmelling really outdid himself, and I think he’s created the best cover of the whole series! I am always thrilled to show off the covers Daniel makes for me, he has always been the perfect artist for this trilogy. The… Read More

I’m proud to announce that audiobook producer C.J. McAllister has joined ON THE WINDS OF QUASARS! I look forward to hearing him voice the world of Kamaria, and I can’t wait to hear his rendition of my characters. Check out CJ’s social media and other work:C.J. McAllister FacebookC.J.

Lot’s happening all at once!Prepare for a Cover Reveal event on March 1st, brought to you by Escapist Tours. Daniel Schmelling has outdone himself, and the cover is stunning. To help with the event, I’ve created a new trailer, featuring the talents of Maria Moore and Moncef for some unique music! The trailer will go public on March 1st with the reveal event. I’ll make my own post featuring it here at… Read More

Been a busy busy busy month! First off, it is with a heavy heart that I report that Michael Reimer is stepping down from his role of audiobook narrator of ON THE WINDS OF QUASARS. I fully understand and respect his decision, and I am so glad I got to work with him on IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS. Best of Luck, Mike! It’s been awesome. That being said, I will be… 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
