From Space to Ancient Rome, then to Another Planet…

My writing career has taken me many places. I’ve gone from writing young adult science fiction to adult fantasy romance over the course of ten years or so. This summer, however, I will be releasing not just one fantastical adventure story, but three. A science fiction novelette, a historical fantasy romance novella, and the second of three volumes of my scifi trilogy; Crimson Winter. 

If you’re a fan of my books, or interested in checking them out, you’ve got a lot to look forward to over the coming months. First up, on May 1st, Zombie Pirate Publishing will be releasing their Saturn-themed Anthology; The Ringed Giant, featuring The Cassini Division by myself, Justine Alley Dowsett, and Murandy Damodred. 

A while back, Murandy and I participated in a week-long challenge to write and submit a 12,500 word novellette in seven days. We were given the theme on Day one. Day two was research. Day three through five we wrote furiously. Day six we edited and day seven sent The Cassini Division off to Zombie Pirate Publishing’s judges. 

And now, you can pre-order The Cassini Division as a part of The Ringed Giant Anthology on Amazon.

Next, Murandy and I have a novella coming out as a part of Mirror World Publishing’s Far, Far Away Anthology. The anthology, which launches June 17th, 2021, will feature seven stories set in seven different realms of fantasy and science fiction.

Our novella, Fatestorm, is set during the early expansion of the Roman Empire and tells the story of a Roman legionnaire who falls in love with someone he’s supposed to think of as no more than a slave to bring back to the Empire. 

Pre-order for the Far, Far Away anthology will begin April 17th when the cover is revealed. Subscribe to this blog, or our newsletter, to stay informed. 

Then, in July, I’ll be releasing the second of three volumes of my young adult science fiction series, Crimson Winter. In Vol. 2: Lands of Jade, Yukari must use her powers as a Chosen of Sapphiros to protect Taiyou and those she loves against increasingly overwhelming odds.

Thank you for reading and I hope you’re looking forward to these new releases as much as I am!
