Nightingale has been selected as part of this year’s dark fantasy/horror storybundle!

For StoryBundle, you decide what price you want to pay. For $5 (or more, if you’re feeling generous), you’ll get the basic bundle of four books in .epub format—WORLDWIDE.

If you pay at least the bonus price of just $20, you get all four of the regular books, plus ten more books for a total of 14 (including a trilogy, which makes it 16)!

Things go bump in the night all year round, and this StoryBundle—curated by New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson—contains 16 books that will keep you on the edge of your seat. We’ve selected a range of ghost stories, monsters, Lovecraftian horror, epic fantasy with a dark twist, and even snarky black humor.



Crown of Stars available for preorder!

The final book in The Nightingale’s Song series is finally available for preorder!

The Nightingale’s story comes to an end.

Having left everything she knows in the burning of Corvain, the former assassin now known as Dae Devos travels across the sea with her ragtag group of companions. The Serra Isles await, but the journey is fraught with peril. If the unknown dangers of the vast seas don’t kill her, the growing uncertainity of her place among the Islanders might.

In Dae’s dreams, Lenos has finally grown quiet. But the wolf-god hunts, waiting for a moment to strike. When old enemies appear on Isles, Dae must make a choice: to let Lenos claim her or to die at the hands of her past.

I’m back!

Hello, everyone! These last few years have been absolutely terrible, but I’m still here and finally have some news on the Nightingale series.

So, as you know, I self-published Queen of Stone. I am in the final throes of editing the final book in the series, Crown of Stars, which will also be self-published. I plan to release Crown before summer 2023.

In addition, I have new covers for Nightingale, Bones of the Vale, and Queen of Stone. I think they look pretty good. 🙂

I’ll post here when I have more information on Crown’s release, and I truly hope you enjoy the end of Tylidae’s story.

Queen of Stone

Book 3 has finished preliminary rewrites and is in the line editing phase. Yay, progress! Since I’ll be self-publishing the last two books in the series, I’m learning interior formatting and cover design as I go. I want Queen to look great; the Amazon KDP pages has tons of resources and walk-throughs. I plan to publish Queen and upcoming Book 4 as trade market paperbacks (the bigger ones) and on Kindle.

Thank you so being so patient!

January 2020: Queen of Stone release (if not sooner!)


I’m so sorry for dropping off the radar there. It’s been a very busy year for me. Moving, medical issues, etc. Stressful stuff. Anyway, I have some good news! I’ll be releasing (this month!) an ebook through Amazon entitled Dawn of Fate. It’s a short story/prequel to Nightingale.

I’m also working hard on the last two books in the series. I haven’t forgotten and they will eventually be released. The third is, I’d say, 75% finished. The rough draft is done and I’m going in to fix some scenes I’m not entirely happy with and to do more editing.

I’ve got maybe 30% of Book 4 complete. These two books will be released through Amazon. I know they’ll be ebooks and I hope I can also get them as paperbacks. I won’t make promises yet, but start keeping an eye out for Book 3 this year.

Audio and Short Stories

In today’s news, there’s an audiobook in the works for Nightingale! I’m really excited about this project. I don’t have much more information at the moment, other than that recording has started and I’ve heard the first 15 minutes. I really like the narrator.

Also, I’ve been toying with the idea of releasing a few Nightingale-related short stories through Amazon. They’d be Kindle only due to their length, so no print versions. The first would be a short prequel to Nightingale.

Release date!

We have a release date!

Bones of the Vale, sequel to Nightingale, will be published by Hadley Rille Books on November 28, 2017.


“The strange creature sat near the glowing coals, the light reflected in its great gold-green eyes, and it spoke. The voice was like gravel, like snapping trees, like the opening of the world. ‘I will save you,’ it said. ‘Build a place for me.’

“‘What place?’ said one man.

“‘Where?’ said another.

“‘Why?’ said the last.

“And the creature opened its great maw and devoured the third, for he had asked the most lethal of questions. ‘You will build a home of the earth,’ it said, ‘in the midst of the world. And I will give you life unending.’
