I’ve been a full-time author for a year as of the beginning of April.
It’s been one hell of a year. I went from a truly awful grocery store job to happily puttering away on my novels. Last August, I left my lease and started traveling full-time as a digital nomad, and I’ve spent the time ever since puttering around SE Asia and the South Pacific. My fourth novel, the standalone epidemiological fantasy novel The Wrack, comes out later this month.

The Wrack officially has a synopsis now! And we’re drawing steadily closer to release- you can expect it out in mid or late April!
Sorry, no April Fool’s jokes for you. I hate April Fool’s. (I did consider writing an essay on how the videogame genre of First Person Shooters (FPS) is inherently a critique of capitalism, until I remembered that, oh, wait, April Fool’s is about posting things that aren’t true, and the FPS genre most certainly is a critique of capitalism.)
The Mage Errant Publisher’s Pack ebook (which contains books 1&2) is free through Sunday, March 22nd! Just in case you need something to read while you’re self-quarantining to hide from COVID-19. (I’m quarantined for real, at the moment! Whee!)
In addition, I recently posted a list of epidemiological reading options on reddit, if this whole pandemic situation has you interested in learning more about epidemiology, or reading some epidemiological fiction.
It’s been one heck of a haul, but at long last, The Wrack has been sent out for some good old fashioned editing. I haven’t set the release date, but it should probably be out in mid to late April!
To celebrate, how about a cover reveal, featuring art by the amazing Amir Zand:
Oh, and I should note that Sarah Lin’s The Brightest Shadow is out now, and I got to read it months before all of you, and I’m definitely gloating over that, because it’s absolutely amazing, and you should all go use it to tide yourselves over until the Wrack is out. Seriously, it’s brilliant. Go read it now.
Hey, remember how I mentioned someone started a Mage Errant subreddit? (I hope so, since it was like two days ago.) I’m doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on there right now! Check it out, and feel free to ask me, well, anything! I’ll answer any questions that pop up there for the next few days! (I’ve already answered a few.)
