EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Pre-Order Now - Releasing June 19
Zen is a darkling -- half human, half dark elf -- in a world that hates him, protected only by having been raised by the Order of the Sun to become a priest. He continues to fail to rise above being an acolyte despite having come of age and longs for a different life, one he only glimpses in dreams when he is with a mysterious, beautiful man he wishes was real.
After encountering an adventuring party made up entirely of other half-races, Zen is drawn to accompany them on their quest to find and destroy a fabled vampire lord. However, the pull he feels toward those lands might be more fated than he realizes.
The Prince and the Ice King
Pre-Order Now - Releasing Aug 3
Every Winter Solstice, the Emerald Kingdom sends the dreaded Ice King a sacrifice—a corrupt soul, a criminal, a deviant, or someone touched by magic. Prince Reardon has always loathed this tradition, partly because he dreams of love with another man instead of a future queen.
Then Reardon’s best friend is discovered as a witch and sent to the Frozen Kingdom as tribute.
Reardon sets out to rescue him, willing to battle and kill the Ice King if that’s what it takes. But nothing could prepare him for what he finds in the Frozen Kingdom.
As I have had the pleasure of knowing one of the creators of Hidden Oaks, fellow author Patrick Marsh, for many years, I have been asked to provide a guest story for one of season three’s episodes. In anticipation of that, I’ve been listening through the first two seasons and am entirely hooked.
I’m a huge superhero fan because I’m also a lifelong geek. I like everything from comics to cosplay to anime to tabletop gaming—which is the subject I discussed recently for Fridays at Ofelia’s: how tabletop character sheets can help you create compelling book characters.
