Book Launch Day! Announcing…The Danger in Bohemia

So let me start off by saying: NEVER plan to be traveling on the day your book gets launched! Big mistake.

That out of the way…




The Danger in Bohemia has been published!

Dreamspinner Press ebook | Dreamspinner Press paperback | Amazon | B&N | Kobo | ARe


I can’t believe it’s here already. It has been a really crazy year–moving yet AGAIN from South Korea to the UK, starting an intense Master’s program, and seeing my first officially published novel! I’ve been running for so long that this has really smacked me in the face. If that makes sense.

Thank you to everyone at Dreamspinner Press who has been supportive of me, and to my friends and family who made this possible. I can’t say how much I appreciate everything you’ve all done for me.

I’ve had a few advanced reviews already. Here’s a small sampling!

At a Glance: Very well written, with a good pace, some surprises, and is a definite page turner.”  -

“…the story has good bones, an interesting premise with likable characters, and a suitable bad guy. I’ll look forward to checking out something else from the author.” -




10 Hours In, and All Is Well.

So far the promotion is going very well! Path of Needles & To Wake the Shadows have both been  boosted in the rankings.

My Month of Writing Dangerously

Yeah, I also went to Germany for a week. And Austria. And then back to Prague. It was fantastic. Despite being a trip with my mother, aunt & cousin, there were also prostitutes.

(Full story coming soon. Promise!)

But now I am home! And man, it is good to be home. Much as I could have kept traveling forever, and I do mean forever–Germany was fantastic, and a country I’d love to return to–it’s also nice to be back in your house, knowwhatImean? Especially when you’re taking a month off of work to write and travel.

Yes, you know what that means: Path of Pins, I’m coming for YOU.

I’m taking the month of July to finish writing my first draft, and hopefully begin work on the re-writes. That way I can get the draft to TK (my fantabulous editor) in August and start working on the online campaign. I’m hoping for a December release date- and keep your eye on my website, too, for some extra goodies that will pop up there.

There’s also Juniper, my short story & poetry collection, which launches this weekend. And as a special promotion…


You can download all three of my books from, absolutely free.

Yep. I’ve temporarily given up on this whole “money making” thing. Now, I’m literally giving it away. This weekend only, guys. It’s pretty sweet. And don’t forget- Juniper has a brand new prequel to Path of Needles in it. Titled After the Funeral, the prequel goes into detail about Hank’s past– and leaves important clues for the stories to follow. 

(Need a Paths refresher? Go here)

I’m really, really excited, guys.

So far today I’ve made my cinnamon-chili coffee, had some cereal, and gotten out of bed (not in that order). Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to writing.



Juniper–coming soon!!!


It’s official- Juniper launches July 13th, 2013. 


Containing short stories & poems, Juniper  will be my third foray into the self-publishing world. Everything in this collection is either brand new or heavily edited, by both me and the wonderful Tricia Kristufek.  Most of the collection has urban fantasy themes, with an emphasis on fairytales.

Juniper also includes a brand new story from the Paths universe, titled After the Funeral. Details about Hank’s mysterious past will be shared–along with clues to the events in Path of Pins, the upcoming second novel in the Paths ‘verse (coming December 2013).

Review copies are being sent out this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled over the next month! Also listen up for promotions. I heard that someone might be offering Path of Needles for free on the launch weekend….*hint hint*

And if you can’t hold your excitement till then, head on over to my website for extra Paths-verse goodies.





Super Exciting Book Fun Time Announcement!

I’ve been teasing that I might have a surprise waiting for y’all this summer.

No, it’s not Path of Pins– that’s still coming out in the winter, folks. But it is a book.

“WHAAAT?” you may be exclaiming right now. “We haven’t heard of this!”

Well you’re hearing it now!


This summer, I’m releasing a new short story and poem collection. Titled Juniper, it will feature about a dozen poems with urban fantasy themes, as well as 5 short stories- most of which are either completely re-written or have never been published. And for those fans of Path of Needles, there will also be a special short story featuring Hank & Mrs. Corboy–which may or may not contain very important clues to their origins, and the plot of Path of Pins. 

Here’s a sneak peak at the Table of Contents:

  1. night flight
  2. Time Slip
  3. bitch, please
  4. Stone Fingers
  5. nice try, buddy
  6. Zeus
  7. grimm
  8. After the Funeral
  9. Father Time
  10. Mr. Fox
  11. crow feathers
  12. once upon a time there was a child…
  13. premonition
  14. Pompeii
  15. we came home
  16. night flight continued

I have just emailed the stories to Tricia Kristufek, my fantastamistic editor (yes, I did make up a new adjective. She is that good). Expect a digital release mid-July.


(Ps: No, not the final cover above! Just, y’know, an announcement thingie. Because I like to play with photoshop).
