Point of Fate, the second volume of my Gairden Chronicles series, is now available on Kindle and other e-reading platforms and devices. A print release should follow in the next month or so.

I’m so excited for this book to finally be available for you to read, for a couple of reasons. One, it was a bear to write: 14 revisions, the first two taking the longest, over 12 years. I wrote the first draft over 4-5 months in 2006, let it simmer in its own filth for nine years, and then gutted and rewrote it from scratch over May 2015 – January 2017. The rewrite took over 18 months because my rewrites to Heritage a few years earlier were so extensive that rewriting the sequel would have been easier than attempting to rework what I’d written.

The second reason is much simpler: I’m proud of this book. In Heritage, I introduced you to one protagonist and gave you glimpses of his world through his eyes. Going into Point of Fate, I increased everything: five characters, four realms, tons of culture and worldbuilding. I’m happy with the world I’ve built up, and I’m not done yet. The Twin Crowns: Book Three of the Gairden Chronicles is coming up on my to-write list. It’s existed in outline form for several years, and this time I don’t need to rework a manuscript, so hopefully the birthing pains are less severe.

But writing Twin Crowns is in the future, simultaneously too far and too close for me to think about. For now, I hope fans of Heritage will be excited to dive into Point of Fate on their e-reading platform of choice.

If you missed it, Tyche Books and I coordinated a cover reveal and chapter excerpt with Fantasy Book Critic, a book blog that covers all things SF/F, horror, YA, and speculative fiction. You can check out the cover and read a snippet of Chapter 1 on FBC here. If you’re ready to jump in, head to Amazon or Kobo.

Thank you, as always, for your support. I love writing stories for you—and for myself, but you’re important, too!—and hope you continue to enjoy them.
