Exciting news! Here’s the cover for my next book, Claws of the Curse!
Claws of the Curse fantasy novel book cover
Big thank you to the folks at Deranged Doctor Design – you did a fantastic job.

Unfortunately, I don’t have an ETA for the book yet; my life has undergone some pretty big changes in the last year, and there’s a lot of work left to be done. But nothing helps me write a novel more than being inspired by an amazing cover!

If you’re wondering, this next book will be another fantasy novel, but featuring new characters. No more Toman and Esset… For now, at least. I’m not ruling out more Fire and Stone stories in the future, but there are no immediate plans.

If you are curious about the new novel, here’s the description of it that I’m working on:

Vhi never wanted to hurt anyone. Unfortunately, wild magic runs rampant through her body, and she can’t stop it from lashing out and hurting others. She’s sure she’s cursed. For this, her brother hunts her and civilization casts her out.

Rajin is a magical big cat with golden fur and a misanthropic personality. He would rather that humans didn’t exist, although human extinction would sit amicably with him too. Unfortunately, humans are better at hunting him than he, them.

When Vhi and Rajin’s paths collide, the cat is intrigued by Vhi’s pure heart. Unfortunately, the cure to her curse may lie with his hunters. Can Vhi and Rajin escape their respective hunters long enough to lift her curse?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
