I’m sort of revamping everything so I can post and display creative works better. Things may be a bit of a mess.
Princess Tiana has discovered the identity of her family’s ancient enemy, but that’s only the beginning. Now she must find three gods scattered across Ceria and convince them to lend her divine power. An already momentous task is complicated by jealous fiends, squabbling siblings, and a demigod who seems more interested in games than salvation.
Meanwhile, her elder sister Queen Jerya struggles to mobilize the armies of Ceria against the Blight. But politics, shady ambassadors, and assassins stand in the way of the military support and royal leadership her country so desperately needs.
Can Jerya stay alive and regain control over her kingdom? Can Tiana survive the Green Wild?

NOTE: If you know you want the print version, you can hold out for that and if you get it via Amazon you’ll be able to pick up the ebook version for free. I believe the print version will be available within a few weeks of the ebook version, with a small but not impossible chance of ‘within a few days’.
I have loved the Sean Dietrich covers for the Senyaza Series. They’re inspired works of art that usually touch on the very core of the stories and if I could have continued using him for new books, I would have.
But that wasn’t happening. I had to switch artists for the new books and I decided to listen to all the feedback I’ve been getting and switch up the old covers, too. The Dietrich covers were sharp and striking and didn’t tell potential readers who were scanning a list of thumbnails a damn thing about the books. They were so confusing that even after reading the blurb and being informed the books were for adults, one noted reviewer said she wasn’t certain they weren’t Middle Grade novels. Covers have that much influence.
I know many of my current readers have loved the old covers. Believe me, I have too. But I also love the new covers and I hope you’ll be willing to give them a chance. My new artist is Ravven, who also did the Citadel of the Sky cover. The new covers will be available on the ebooks going forward. Print books with the new covers will become available perhaps within a month–and for a while yet the old covers will also be available. It’ll be a Pick Your Favorite Cover situation.
So… presenting the revised Senyaza Series covers:
And introducing the cover for the forthcoming collection of short stories, Etiquette of Exiles. It mostly covers the first year after Infinity Key ends, and features stories about Penny, William, the Queen of Stone, Severin, and the twins– among many others.
I have a new book up on Kickstarter. A new, very old book. I’ve been working on Citadel of the Sky and its attached series for a long, long time. It’s epic fantasy inspired by a childhood spent reading Raymond Feist and David Eddings. And it’s also a story about princesses and mental disorders and accommodations and demon swords. Because these are all things I think about and like to see in fiction. So I hope you’ll swing by and check it out. There’s a link there to the first two chapters…. 🙂
Otherwise, it’ll be out via retailers around May 15 and you can pick it up then!
Check it out!
I’m also giving away a free Amazon Kindle copy via Facebook today and tomorrow; just head over there and drop me a comment.
