This has been one heck of a journey, and I want to thank all of you who joined me on it. As I mentioned in my last post, it was difficult closing this series out. I've written over eight books now, and closing up a story is always difficult. But never before have I had to close up a four-book series, and that required every last bit of energy I had for over a year. But the book is now available at:


A friend of mine, a salesman in a high-tech company, once explained the salesman's dilemma. If you have a really successful quarter and go way over target, at the beginning of the next quarter, you start at zero; you have to start all over again.

I feel a little bit like that: time to start all over again and start the next book. I'm going to miss Morgin, Rhianne, France, and many of the characters that I've lived with for so long. I'm even going to miss that conniving, old witch Olivia. But I am looking forward to the next book: Of Treasons Born, the prequel to A Choice of Treasons. And after that, Never Dead Enough, the third book in The Dead Among Us.
