2021 Issue #13



The time has come at last! KINGDOMS OF DEATH, Book Four in the Sun Eater series, is finally ready to reveal! We just unveiled the cover art yesterday, featuring no less than the Prince of the Princes of the Cielcin, Syriani Dorayaica itself, with art by the great Kieran Yanner, who has done all my main series covers since HOWLING DARK. I know a lot of you have been waiting to get a look at one of the Cielcin, and here it is at last. I couldn't be more psyched about it. I say it a lot, but new cover art is probably my favorite part of the whole writing process, and Kieran's one of the best there is.

KINGDOMS OF DEATH will hit shelves on March 8, 2022. I know that's later than some of you might have been hoping for, but as readers of this newsletter may know, I had some medical issues in my family that slowed down production in 2020, and I missed my deadline as a consequence. I'm sorry it couldn't be with you sooner, but there's still plenty to come between now and then, between the WORLD BREAKERS and SWORD & PLANET anthologies (each featuring new Sun Eater universe stories), and the hardcover special edition of THE LESSER DEVIL that we'll be talking about very, very soon!

If you don't want to wait, you can get a preview of the new book by supporting me on Patreon. The first TWO chapters of KINGDOMS OF DEATH are available right now to patrons. Find that here:

To celebrate the pre-release links going live AND the fact that my YouTube channel just passed the 1000 subscriber threshold, I'll be doing a very special livestream next week on Wednesday, June 30, at 6 PM EDT. We'll be reading from a couple select passages from early in the book, and I'll be taking some questions, although we're going to obviously not spoil the new book. March is a long ways away, I know! So let me make it up to you!
