2023 is set to be a busy year! We have a bunch of fun things lined up to do this year. Although I’ve lowered my word count goal a bit, there will still be plenty of new books coming out. I plan to use the extra time to work on marketing and getting my books into more readers hands.


We have planned 3-4 new Kickstarter projects for 2023. The first is a special edition 10th anniversary collection of the Alexandrian Saga, that will launch sometime this spring. Be sure to follow the project if you’re interested to get updates and know as soon as the project goes live. We will also be launching the first series of Season Two of The Hundred Halls (The Crystal Halls Series) on Kickstarter in the summer. We have ideas for the other 2 projects, but you’ll have to wait to find out what those will be.

2023 will see big changes to our direct sales store as well. We are currently working with BookVault to be able to sell print books in our store. Soon we will be offering paperback and hardback copies of my books. We’re also working with Google digitally narrated audiobook services to have my books made into audiobooks that will be for sale in the store. We are even discussing selling Hundred Halls swag, so if there’s something in particular you would like to see, let me know in the comments! We will be offering monthly deals to my newsletter subscribers on the store, so make sure you’re signed up to the newsletter.

Later this month I’m part of a Magic School story bundle and another Magic School anthology comes out later in the spring. There’s a brand new Hundred Halls story in each that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. I’ll give you more information about both of these when they’re available.

Finally, I’ll be continuing to publish serialized stories. Gnombo (on kindle vella) releases new episodes each Wednesday until the story is complete, and new Forging a Legacy episodes release a few Tuesdays a month here on the website.

Whew! That’s a lot of stuff and that’s really just the first half of the year! Signing up for my newsletter is the easiest way to make sure you don’t miss a thing (including discount promotions), but you can also follow me on TikTok, FaceBook, Twitter, or Instagram for updates as well.
