Latest Updates from Our Project:

I've launched a new crowd-funding campaign!
over 5 years ago – Tue, Aug 28, 2018 at 02:05:37 AM

It isn't on Kickstarter this time (because it's not for a new product), but you can find it here. What is it for? Well, I'm glad you asked. You see, hardcover editions of Age of Swords are now out of print, so the only place to get them are marketplace resellers, (who have jacked the price up to $89 - $191...even for used copies). What an outrage! Not only that, but I'll earn $0 on any sales of these copies.

Del Rey will sell me the excess warehouse stock, but it'll be expensive. So I'm running a crowdfunding campaign to raise the $11,360 to get my hands on as many copies as I can. I'll then sell the books on my site at the $28 list price (backers of the campaign will get the books even cheaper, just $22, which is a 20% discount). Plus people will receive added perks like screensavers of Marc Simonetti's fabulous artwork, a free short story, and their names will be listed on my website for helping to make this project happen.

Since you've supported my Riyria crowdfunding in the past, I thought you might be interested in jumping into Legends of the First Empire (the first three books are released now and all are available through the campaign).

So, take a look and if you like what you see, please consider backing this project, too. And as always thank you for your support.

New Riyria Chronicle Kickstarter launches tomorrow!
over 6 years ago – Thu, Oct 05, 2017 at 12:56:34 AM

Tomorrow (Oct 5, 2017) at 12:00 noon EDT, I'll be launching a Kickstarter for the 4th Riyia Chronicle: The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter.

You'll see a lot of similarities in this project to the Death of Dulgath Kickstarter including:

  • Early-bird discounts
  • Rare, limited edition, and regular hardcovers
  • DRM-free ebooks
  • Signed copies of physical books

Some new things:

  • Audiobooks (delivered through
  • A fulfillment house will be used for shipping which will greatly improve the speed of delivery

Some other things to note:

  • The book is already written, beta tested, and I've received the copy edits from one editor and expect the other copy editor's changes in a few hours
  • If the Kickstarter fails to fund, the book will still be released, but the only physical copies will be trade paperbacks produced with print-on-demand (and they'll be 1/4" taller than the other books.

I hope you'll join us in this new Kickstarter, I don't have a link yet, but if you check in at at noon tomorrow there will be one there. Or, you can do a search on "Winter's Daughter" starting at noon tomorrow.

I hope you'll check it out!

Many boxes of the printed comics of The Jester have arrived at our house.  Now that we have them (and were 100% sure about the size) we've ordered mailers to send them out in. Shipping should commence shortly.

If you are getting a copy of the Jester and your address has changed, please send your new address to [email protected] and Sarah will update your record.

We're finally getting there!

Hey all, I just wanted to let everyone know that a bunch of new digital rewards were posted to the BackerKit Digital Download area.  This includes:

  • Wallpappers in a variety of different sizes
  • Bonus Short stories in .epub, .pdf, and .mobi format

I'm sorry this took so long. To be honest I thought the Wallpapers went out eons ago but then I looked through all the various updates and saw they weren't. Doh!

If you forget your Kickstarter login please email: [email protected] and Sarah will help you find it.
