News about my next project: Untethered Sky, a standalone fantasy novella about the legendary rocs of myth and the elite trainers who fly them, will be released by Tordotcom in early 2023. Read the full announcement here.

THE JADE SETTER OF JANLOON will arrive on April 30

The Jade Setter of Janloon, a standalone prequel novella of the Green Bone Saga, releases in limited edition hardcover and e-book formats from Subterranean Press on April 30, 2022. It stars completely new characters with major appearances by familiar cast members of the main trilogy. The incredible cover wraparound cover art is by Charis Loke. I thoroughly enjoyed returning to Janloon to tell this noir mystery and can’t wait to share it with readers.

Jade Legacy Release Week

Jade Legacy releases this week, November 30 in the US/Canada and December 2 in the UK. It’s hard to put into words how it feels to see this trilogy completed and out in the world. I’m proud of how this third and final installment in the Green Bone Saga turned out and am glad to finally share it with readers.

One thing that made release day extra special was this review from NPR Books, which also selected Jade Legacy as one of its Best Books of 2021.
