My gift for the #Resistance, the most wish-fulfillment ghost story possible. I kinda suck at short stories, and this is going to continue to be really irregular, because it’s taken me six months to write a second chapter, but we’ll see where we go.
Books are live, and they are going to kill me.
But we knew that, because that’s why I’m publishing these babies. Publishing them is actually selfish on my part. It’s been hard to write other things – or even the next Galantier cycle* — without locking these down. If I wasn’t pushing them, I’d still be f***ing with them.
*Yes, there are more stories. At least 3 cycles — no idea how many books — right now, and seeds for a couple more after that. It’s a big world, with a lot that needs fixing.
The good news
Book II is out and you can buy it!
Rien’s Rebellion: Repudiation & Refuge
Razin Vohan’s death should have put his daughter, Cazerien, on the throne of Galantier. He spent her entire life preparing her for the day she would become Razia.
Some on the Prava had other plans. Instead of approving the succession, they chose her half-cousin, Savrin sator Lethis, a priest of the god of death.
Galantier is fracturing under the weight of old enmities and rivalries. The world Rien’s father built for her is crumbling.
This one is not free, but it’s $2.99.
At this point: Please buy from either Smashwords or Amazon.** Those are the two where I have the most control over the format file, and I know that both of those will work on most devices. I’ve gotten a report that the Kobo Store’s file is broken beyond reading. I’m really sorry about that. I don’t know what they did, and I don’t have a relationship with them.
I don’t do affiliate links.
**As soon as I’ve made Apple happy, you’ll be able to get it there, too, but Apple wants to grow up to be a bank, so they make producers jump through more hoops.
Book III comes out on October 1.
Rien’s Rebellion: The Committed Ones
Laarens is alone in the world. Rien is dead, Savrin has become fully Mathes’ puppet. Laarens may be the only remaining Ascendar, but he knows his life is cheap and getting cheaper.
At least, that’s what Rien needs Laarens to believe. She’s gambling both their lives on the lie that the two bodies found in her burnt office were Avah’s and her own. Avah is dead, but Rien has barely escaped with her life.
Nine years before, at Rien’s Elevation, Quin Tiwendar swore his life to Rien’s service, then vanished. Now, reluctantly reunited with his liege, Quin and his partners offer Rien temporary shelter.
But if Galantier is to survive, everyone must understand the commitments they have made to one another and the land of their birth.

The bad news
The Kobo Store version of Book II is corrupted. I’m not sure how, because if they’re just reselling the Smashwords epub, they wouldn’t have a problem. But it appears they reformatted something and this added strange and wrong page breaks? I don’t actually understand, because I don’t have a business relationship with them at all. I’m not actually sure how they got the file, but whatever they did, they broke it, because that’s not true for any other version.
So right now? I can’t recommend the Kobo store. Now, a Smashwords version will work on a Kobo, so I can strongly suggest using the Smashwords site as linked above.
I am working on it. Until then?
- If your copy is corrupted, please demand your money back from the vendor
- email me , tell me where you bought it, and what your device is, and I’ll send you a copy.
I don’t own every device and I don’t work with every store, but I am really trying to keep everything cross-platform and multi-device capable.
