Now for the BLURB

Ciardis Weathervane is nothing if not resourceful but she and her friends are running out of time and options. They stand at the westernmost edge of the Algardis Empire with a mission from their emperor – bring home the collar that will stop a god in its tracks or die trying.

But nothing is ever that simple. In their way stands thousands of people trapped inside a walled city for half a century. With the souls of the living and the corpses of the damned, the denizens of Kifar have become the living undead.

What’s worse than confronting the undead? Learning that those poor souls blame the imperial family for their predicament. Now the city and its people want retribution and the only thing they will accept is the sacrifice of the empire’s most famous son – Sebastian Athanos Algardis.

He will stand trial for the crimes of his bloodline and it will take more than diplomacy for Ciardis to win his freedom, before a reign of fire comes down from the wyvern and the dragon to burn them all.

A BIG THANK YOU AND SOME NEWS

I want to thank you all for your patience and being supportive readers. I received dozens of a messages a week asking me where the next book is. I didn’t answer all of them immediately but I did read every one and now that Sworn To Ascension: Courtlight #6 has released I’ve taken the time to personally respond to everyone who emailed or Facebook messaged me or commented. I knew you wanted the next book and wanted it now. That’s my goal in 2015. To keep producing what you want and do it timely.

To keep in touch, I’ve joined forces with another fantasy author, K.J. Colt of kjcolt.com,  to put together an awesome private group for readers. I will share with you there updates on my manuscripts, new cover art, my publishing process and answer questions as I can. My lovely assistant, Rachel, will also be there to share exclusive teasers from in-progress manuscripts before release day.

Sworn To Ascension: Courtlight #6 is LIVE!!

Courtlight Teaser

Now available on all retail sites.

Ciardis Weathervane is officially engaged to one man and bonded to a second. She should be planning the wedding ceremony, bearding the nobles of the imperial court in their dens, and exposing an imposter emperor. Instead she’s spending her engagement on the lawless road to the western lands.

Now with the help of a guide from a tribe of seers, Ciardis is traveling to the ancient city of Kifar. Rumored to hold the only device capable of stopping the blutgott, Ciardis, Sebastian and Thanar must break a half-century’s old quarantine in order to enter the fabled city.

But the collar of Diamis is not the only thing they seek. The princess heir’s pet wyvern lurks in wait for them and the emperor, who has done everything short of challenging the new triad of Algardis outright, wants its head on a platter upon their return.

If the unscrupulous bandits don’t make short work of them, Ciardis knows that when they return she and Sebastian will have to a face and unmask the man who has stolen the imperial throne. The only question that remains…will that be before or after they’re forced to battle a god?
