The Tyrant’s Heir (Desertera #3) is Out Now!

The Tyrant's Heir“Launch days” like today always feel a bit weird to me. On the surface, today is just another normal Tuesday. I’m still sitting at my desk, writing product copy about wine (that’s the day job), and answering emails from coworkers.

Yet, today is anything but a normal Tuesday. The Tyrant’s Heir (Desertera #3) has landed in Kindles and reading devices around the world. Reviews have started to roll in on Goodreads. Invisible tendons connect you and me and readers from at least three continents.

Today also brings a feeling of completion. I’ve put the book out into the world. It belongs to you now, as much as it does me. Which means it’s time for me to hang up Lionel’s top hat and get to work on another project … but more on that later.

On Sale Now: The Courtesan’s Avenger (Desertera #2)

perf5.250x8.000.inddAfter over a year of working and waiting, I’m pleased to announce that The Courtesan’s Avenger (Desertera #2) is available in ebook AND paperback formats on all major online retailers.

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point. I couldn’t have published one book, let alone two, without the support of my family, friends, and fellow writers. My readers deserve a special thanks: your encouraging emails, social media shout-outs, and heartwarming reviews are the fuel that keeps my inspiration burning. Thank you joining my journey.

When I published The Cogsmith’s Daughter (Desertera #1) last year, I thought my heart would burst from panic. Here I was, an unknown and inexperienced author, putting her art out for the world to judge. Publishing my nonfiction booklets has felt significantly less personal (more like writing one of my craft blog posts), so I thought I would be better prepared for this launch. After all, this will be my tenth publication. It’s old hat now, right?

Wrong. I’m still a bundle of nerves and excitement, of dread and hope. I’m not a parent, but I have to imagine that this is what it feels like to send your child off to kindergarten or university. I did the best that I could. Now it’s up to you, little one.

I’ll write a longer reflection post after the book launch buzz simmers down. For now, I’m off to take deep breaths, celebrate, then start book three.
