Books! and other stuff

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with posting here. I've been both busy and lethargic.


I've posted the next Raksura snippet in the Patreon! If you're a Patreon person and didn't get the email, please check to make sure your subscription is okay. Patreon doesn't let people know when something's wrong, if your charge to your card didn't go through, etc.


I'm past 75,000 words in the sequel to the next Raksura book The Edge of Worlds (which is coming out April 5.) Still trying to figure out a title.


* Warrior Women edited by Paula Guran
"Each story contains strength and compassion, even when the personal cost is high. The depictions of battle and trauma are rarely graphic, but they're as hard-hitting as the subject demands. This is a truly impressive accomplishment for Guran and her contributors." - Publishers Weekly (STARRED)

She's chosen to work for the Special Police, learning how to use the healer's gift she'd never even known she had. She wants to save lives instead of killing like her father.
