Chains of Merzai Book Launch Day!

Cover of Chains of Merzai by Raven J. Demers and Robin Wood. A brown-skinned, brown-haired elf woman (Aeri) in brown vest and linen shirt, lovingly caresses the cheek of her dying lover, Eila, a fat, light-skinned elf woman with copper hair who lies in a bed of fur. Aeri's left hand hovers above Eila's chest as if trying to heal her. Translucent curtains around the bed partially obscure the face of a light blue-skinned, blue-haired elf woman who scowls at the pair. Cover illustration by Bond Buwalda.

Hello dear subscribers! I’m excited to tell you that the third book the in Amakai series, Chains of Merzai, is available today in print, for Kindle, and on other digital platforms. This book includes four new coloring pages by Emily Fuller, who illustrated the coloring pages for The Grasp of Time. We’re quite happy she was able to join our team again for this book.

Chains of Merzai

The world is in chaos, and Eila Corbin, Seal Breaker and The Cause of It All, awaits her death. From her prison in Merzai, her lovers Aeri and Wells bring fleeting comfort and news of the world beyond her chains—a world now reshaped by magic and the technology to combat it. Despite her terminal sentence, there are those in power working to keep her alive. As the first Amakai to appear after centuries, they seek to protect her—or use her—to serve their goals. Caught between court intrigues, inter-Realm gambits, and obsession, Eila escapes into the Dream for her nightly lessons with the black dragon she unwittingly freed.

#BookLaunch: Perdition

perdition-cover-hardlightYesterday, Perdition launched on While the print and Kindle versions are not yet on a single page (it takes a few days), both are available for purchase.  Don’t wish to pay for shipping?  You can pick up a copy and have it signed at Norwescon 40.*  See the Appearances page for more details.

I’m a little sleep deprived, but excited for this launch. When the proof arrived, I spent a lot of time touching the matte cover and flipping through the pages to ensure everything looked alright.  It was larger and heavier than expected for a novel of 76,000 words.  If you happen to purchase a copy, or read it at your local library, please take a few minutes to write an honest review.  Let me know what you think, especially if you loved it or wanted to throw it across the room.

*Please note: Norwescon 40 is a four day annual science fiction and fantasy convention — the largest in the PNW — and requires a day or weekend badge to participate in events, workshops, and panels.  If you’re interested in attending, take a peek at the amazing schedule of events happening Easter weekend.
