Check out this preview of “Stone Spirits,” another story in my loosely connected Thousand Kingdoms series. The story features Doona Walraven, a young woman on the run from river pirates. All she wanted to do was travel downriver to be a chef in her uncle’s restaurant. Now, she doesn’t even know if she’ll be alive tomorrow…
My new story, “Bitter Days,” is a mashup…a crime story in a fantasy setting. Pageeda is a young orphan girl living on the streets of a gritty port city. When her older sister goes missing, she has to track down the men who took her.
The protagonist of “Bitter Days,” my latest story set in the gritty fantasy seaport of Cosaturi, features a homeless orphan girl named Pageeda growing up in the Tween, a rough and tumble district in the city’s Lowtown area. A map and associated key for the Tween district were included in the book, and are also included here for your enjoyment.
My new fantasy novelette, BITTER DAYS, has just been published in the ebook and a deluxe trade paperback formats by Tannhauser Press, with an awe-inspiring cover by Glenn Porter. It’s a crime story and a coming of age story set in my “Thousand Kingdoms” fantasy series.
