His tundra hound, Razi, bounded through snow banks in the palace gardens, snapping at the air. Liam watched him with a smile, his arms crossed over his chest. Tundra hounds came in a variety of colors, but he had always preferred gray, or sometimes the dark purple that bordered on black in the dead of … Continue reading Liam Getting Married
This post is strictly celebratory. I finished the first final draft of The Shadow Throne last Thursday, and with one more quick edit (since I edit as I go), it will be ready to go to beta readers. I also have the cover designed, as of Saturday. With that in mind, I should be looking … Continue reading I finished the trilogy!
“Here’s something,” Sebastian said in Aria’s tent that evening. The rebellion force had spread itself all over the foothills on either side of the Northern Pass; Valtteri executed a smooth, highly effective pincer move to confront Alistair’s legions, with the result that the battle barely lasted an hour before the usurper king was forced to … Continue reading Weston, Part 5

It's good that I took these few weeks off (ending November 20th), strictly because I had so much work to do on the second act, I don't know how I would have kept the blog updated. The Shadow Throne is sitting at 98,000 words as of today, which is about the length of The Ice … Continue reading Thoughts on The Shadow Throne
I really need to work on The Shadow Throne. I open up Google Drive and it's like it's staring at me every morning. Judging me. The second act has so much Liam. It's going to be a blast. I'm doing the thing. I'll be back with more alternate universe tales on Monday, November 20th. Valtteri is going … Continue reading Taking a Break…
Prince Dominik of the Spine pushed his fork around his plate, avoiding anyone’s eyes. Aria glanced at Weston, on her right, before turning her gaze to Valtteri, across the table. He finished a pull of his glass of wine, his eyes never leaving hers. “Valtteri’s father is thinking about passing him over as heir,” Weston … Continue reading Weston, Part 3
