By On Sep 5 2013, 9:00 am

As the contracts are all signed, I can say aloud that Samhain will be publishing the sequel to my fantasy romance, Brightarrow Burning–currently titled The Darkness of Glengowyn but that could always change.

I love worldbuilding. It’s almost my favorite part of writing and reading. But I worldbuild only as much as I need to for any given story.

Squirrel Terrace is under new management. Our Beloved Feline Overlord handed off the reins on April 9 to a new velvet-gloved tyrant—er, Kindly One.
