Hello everyone! Long time no update, but with good reason! I’ve been busy working on a mountain of other projects while Storm of Fury made its slow way through the production process. But that is at an end, and the official publishing date for SoF is January 16th!
I’ll send another update next date with further details on prices and such, but in the mean time, thank you for your patience!
Greetings wonderful followers,
I just got some exciting news from Inkshares. According to them, Beyond the Code should be all printed up in about two weeks, then they’ll start sending out the purchased copies to my wonderful backers. Can’t wait. Be sure to keep an eye on your email if you have moved in the last while so they can get your new mailing address. Wouldn’t want some stranger enjoying your book.
Thank you all for following me this far.

As 2017 comes to a close, I want to wish you all a prosperous and healthy new year. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. It’s been a long road, but we are at last reaching our destination! Mechcraft will be published on February 20, 2018 and I could not be more excited!
We’re having a book release party on that date, so look for details coming soon.
Happy New Year, everyone!
Supporters of Crow’s Gambit...hmm, supporters sounds so formal...
If we used the poetic name for a group of crows would that make you the Murder of Crow’s Gambit? That’s definitely not what I’m going for. The Flock of Crow’s Gambit? Really, I don’t need a flock following me. The horde, hover, muster, or parcel of Crow’s Gambit?
Maybe we should look at synonyms for supporters instead. The Apologists of Crow’s Gambit? Noooo. The Crusaders of Crow’s Gambit? I don’t think there’s enough support here to really call this a "crusade" yet. Champions of Crow’s Gambit? Hmm...maybe.
Regardless thank you for helping make Crow’s Gambit a reality. However, we are not there yet. We need more crows. Please keep sharing information about the story and if you are fence sitting, come one...it’s the holidays. You know you want to give me a Pre-Order gift.
For those wondering if Santa made it past the Sylph...well, we don’t know. I have been feeling under the weather during the holidays and to be honest, no one voted. If there had been one vote cast either way I would have pushed something out. Guess we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
Happy Holidays to all of my amazing friends and supporters!
As this year comes to a close, I want to thank you all again for your generous contributions towards making Curio Citizen a reality. I also want to give you all a brief update on what’s happening in the publishing process.
As of now, I am still waiting to begin the process of editing, cover creation, and everything else that needs to happen in order to get Curio Citizen ready for bookshelves. Inkshares has many books currently in production, but I’ve heard through the grapevine that they are nearly finished with their current round of books, and after the new year will begin focusing on the next batch, which I’m happy to say, includes Curio Citizen.
I still don’t have an estimated publication date, but as promised, I will continue to give you all updates as soon as I know more. Thank you many times over for making 2017 a sparkling year in my life. Hopefully, 2018 will reward your generosity by sending a copy of Curio Citizen your way!
Much love to all and Happy New Year!
This will be brief.
Set launch date is February 26th
Bookmarks and hand painted postcards will be delivered with the books (if I can convince Inkshares to let me piggyback). Otherwise, they will be sent at launch.
Y’all are awesome and I have treasured your support. If ever you need an ear or a second set of eyes, please send me a line on Facebook (Kendra Namednil) or gmail (firstname.lastname@example.org). I can hardly wait for the coming New Year!
-- Warm thoughts always,
