Elf Saga: Solarpunk has arrived!

solarpunk_2700Hello, readers! I know it’s been a very long time, but I promise it was worth the wait. I’m very pleased to announce the release of Elf Saga, Book 4: Solarpunk. The ebook is currently available on Amazon and Smashwords, and the paperback is on Amazon too.

What’s it about? Here’s the blurb:

This is still not your typical epic fantasy! When Zaya and her friends learn that the world is dying, they set out to play hero just like their ancestors did. But whole countries lie in ruins, armies of refugees roam the land, toxic storms ravage the earth and sea, and no one is coming to help them. Zaya wants a villain to slay, and Roxy thinks she can fix anything, but Adeja suspects this may be a fight that no one can win…

Explore a world of sword and sorcery that’s as classic as it is bizarre with ZAYA, an apprentice shaman who just wants to fight the undead, ROXY, a one-armed inventor with a healthy fear of dragons, BASTIEN, a romantic drunk who wishes he’d never become a healer in the first place, and ADEJA, a beautiful singer who just inherited the most powerful weapon in the world… and wants nothing to do with it.

What the heck is “Solarpunk”?

Glad you asked! It’s a pretty new genre, a bit similar to Cyberpunk and Steampunk, but Solarpunk is a utopian look at the future, with a focus on human ingenuity, finding ways to adapt to a changing world, and inventing brilliant, beautiful, and sustainable solutions to massive, life-threatening problems. And I thought it offered a fantastic, positive note to end the Elf Saga on.

Whoa! The end of the Elf Saga?!

For the moment, yes. I do have other Elf ideas, but I want to explore some different stories for a while. But if you’d really like to find out what happens in Elf Saga 5, pester me on Facebook and maybe I’ll get working on it sooner! In the mean time, check out my new website www.elfsaga.com for a little more info about the series, and about me.

Other news

Life has been pretty exciting lately. Mostly because I met someone, and she proposed to me, and now we’re engaged! So we’ve been moving her in with me and the girls, and rearranging our lives a bit. Adventure!

But now I’m ready to get back into the writing groove, and I’m planning to release my next series as an old-fashioned serial, with lots of short novellas coming out pretty quickly. What’s it about? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles… in space!

Thanks so much for your support, I really appreciate it!

New release: ELF SAGA: PEACEMAKER is here!

Friends, readers, and random strangers, I am happy to announce that my newest book ELF SAGA: PEACEMAKER is here! This sequel to DOOMSDAY and BLOODLINES features an amazing cover by series artist Linggar Bramanty and a pretty okay story by me,  and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today. So what’s it about? Ghosts and guns, dragons and death, riddles and Ravens, and more!

Over sixty years have passed since a group of women saved the world from Doomsday, and now their grandchildren have grown up to be gunslingers, pirates, and orphans obsessed with revenge! PEACEMAKER is a story told in three parts about three women: Winona, Ksenia, and Tsetseg.

Path of the Gunslinger – For five years, Winona was the hero of the Union, saving her people from countless invasions of dragons, sky ships, maskmen, and alchemists. But now with the war over, she’s desperate to escape from a life of gunfights and stalkers. Following the strange images in her dreams, Winona finds herself in a distant land with a dashing sky pirate and a grouchy old shaman, trying to save a city from ghostly parasites and reapers!

Revenge of the Dragon – All her life, Ksenia has dreamed of avenging her murdered family and restoring her people as the greatest dragon-riders in the world. But when she confronts her enemies for the first time, she discovers they are just as poor, lonely, and grieving as she is. Shifting her sights from revenge to justice, Ksenia sets out to bring peace to the spirits of her ancestors, and to the people of a city plagued by the dead!

War of the Spirit – Ever since she became a princess, Tsetseg knew that one day the people would rise up to destroy her family. But she didn’t know she would survive. Accompanied by her beloved unicorn Batu and raptor Enjin, she joins forces with a trio of foreigners to find the dark spirits that make her city erupt into violence every nine years. But can she soothe the raging phantoms while defeating an invasion of dragons, maskmen, and immortal war machines? (Probably!)


Discover the world of Vaenos, where dragons are weapons of mass destruction, faeries are pests, mermaids are monsters, and everyone has long pointy ears! This epic series spans four generations of women across a century of chaos, war, plague, revolution, and every other crisis imaginable. But it’s funny.

With heroines inspired by historical warriors and leaders from around the real world, this modern twist on old-school fantasy mashes up classics like Lord of the Rings with the funny, sexy, self-aware style of Supernatural, Buffy, Archer, and Rat Queens.

New release: Zariel’s Doom!

Today it is my great pleasure to announce the release of my newest epic fantasy novel, Zariel’s Doom.

[ Cover art by the very talented Laura Sava ]

This is the third and final book in the ANGELS AND DJINN trilogy, following Raziel’s Shadow and Azrael’s Wrath. This story is evenly divided between two heroes, the falconer Zerai and the young seer Iyasu. Once again they are called to save the world, but now they both want more out of life than violence and suffering, and their journeys end up being far stranger than either of them would have hoped… or feared.

From the back cover:

When a clan of powerful djinn attack the city of the magi warriors, Zerai the falconer and Iyasu the seer are summoned to help fight the greatest enemy they have ever faced. But both are tired of the bloodshed and neither of them wants to see any more suffering and death.

Amid the chaos of djinn duels, deadly disasters, and a magi civil war, Zerai finds a small orphan girl and resolves to do anything necessary to get her and himself out of the war zone so they can live a normal life as a family. And Iyasu sets out with Azrael, the Angel of Death, to find a legendary djinn artifact, a quest that will take them to mechanical cities, ancient ruins, and even the Tree of Life itself in the company of the strangest people and creatures he has ever encountered.

But when open war erupts between immortal angels, corrupted djinn, and the devastating magi warriors, can two men really turn the tide of history? Or will they be consumed by yet another wave of senseless violence?

Get it now on Amazon!
