Kimiko and the Cycle of Moons (Amaranthine Interludes, #2) – Readers have often asked for more of Kimi’s courtship of Quen. Their “grand cycle” is a tale I’m eager to tell. Once I reach my posted community goal over on Patreon, I’ll begin a serialized account that ranges from fittings in the seamstress’s workroom at the Starmark compound to the forming of fresh triads at New Saga High School. And of course, all the drama at Kikusawa Shrine: three sisters, twelve kisses, and the long-awaited stirring of a sleeping landmark. [forthright on Patreon – currently at 180 of 400 patrons – about 45%]

One Week Left

Flattered by Flowers: The Anthology will be releasing in print & audio formats a week from today! There’s still time to pre-order. Further inducement comes in the form of … another audio clip, courtesy of Travis Baldree, this time from Bathed in Moonlight (Songs of the Amaranthine, #7).

Audible (US Storefront) >>

On a related note, if you’re planning to buy a signed copy of the anthology from me, the first shipment will go out the door tomorrow. (I spent yesterday getting your orders ready.) But there’s certainly still time to add to the pile of packages. Details on this post >>

Bard & Barbarian

Narrated Edition. Bard and Barbarian has been posting slow and steady over on my Patreon account. Reading along is great, but supporters on some tiers can now listen along. Ch30, “Safely Stabled” just went live for those in qualifying tiers. AND Ch26, “In and Out” just unlocked for the Twinkle and Sparkle tiers.

New narrated chapters will arrive every other Wednesday, which means … there’s always something more to look forward to! Learn more about my Patreon here >>

Personal Touches

Details, Details. One of the little personal touches that I always add to the signed books that I send out are inked stamp images. Dreaming them up can be pretty fun. I don’t suppose you know which of the four stories THIS little beauty celebrates? ::twinkle::

You can pre-order Flattered by Flowers: The Anthology (print edition) just about everywhere. So hit up your favorite virtual bookseller. Here’s the link to Amazon. (**Note: the anthology is print-only. The Kindle edition Amazon has linked in the store is the single digital short story, Songs 08.) You can also now pre-order the print books from me so that they’ll have these personal touches. Details on this post.
