Jade Legacy will be released on November 30

Jade Legacy, the third and final book in the Green Bone Saga, will hit shelves on November 30 (US/Can) and Dec 2 (UK/International). The book is now available for pre-order at all major retailers. I’m crossing my fingers that by November, I’ll be able to hold in-person bookstore launch events with friends and readers.

I’ll also be releasing three prequel short stories prior to the launch of Jade Legacy, tentatively on the first day of September, October, and November. More details to come!

Green Bone Saga fan art

I’ve gathered the Green Bone Saga fan art I’ve received into a gallery on Pinterest, for my (and your) viewing pleasure. Seeing fan art is one easily one of the best things about being an author. It’s an incredible feeling every time I’m told that my stories and characters have inspired readers to be creative. I’ve tried to credit the artists as best I can, and of course, always welcome additions. Visit the Green Bone Saga fan art gallery here.

In this time of social distancing, here are a few places I’ve been around the Internet:

Jade City is a finalist for the 2020 Seiun Awards

The Science Fiction Fan Groups’ Association of Nippon (SFFAN) has announced the finalists for the 2020 Seiun Awards (the Japanese equivalent of the Hugo Awards), honoring the best original and translated works published last year in Japan.

I’m delighted that Jade City is a finalist for Best Translated Novel. This is my first award nomination for a translated edition of my work. My thanks to translator Mayumi Ohtani, to my Japanese publisher, Hayakawa, and to Japanese readers.
