How do I keep up-to-date on your new releases?
The best way to be the first to know when I release a new book, novella, omnibus, or boxset is to join my Shadow Raven Rookery. That way, not only will you be the first to know about new releases, you'll also be notified of sales, giveaways & receive exclusive raven-delivered bonus content like short stories, novellas, first chapters & more!
But...if you're short on time & just want to know when I release something new, you can follow me on BookBub & you'll receive a brief notice only when I release something.
So basically everyone wins & gets exactly what they want. Shiny right?
When will the next Harvest Wolf episode be released?
Due to personal reasons I've had to push back the release of Harvest Wolf Episodes 3-6 to 2019. I'm truly sorry to have to make you Harvest Wolf fans wait even longer to see what happens to Sienna & Kessel in the next installment, but I promise you won't be disappointed when it's finally ready.
How do you pronounce your characters’ names?
Thanks for asking, there are pronunciation guides in the front of all paperback editions & in the back of all eBook editions of my books. You can also find pronunciation guides by series here.

Review Related Questions
Can I have a review copy of one of your books?
Yes, if you are a legit reviewer, book blogger, librarian, media professional, or journalist you can request a eBook review copy of any of my books with the exception of multi-author anthologies & no-longer-available-for-purchase titles. EBook review copies are available in both mobi & ePub format via BookFunnel, just complete the form below.
Are you really dyslexic?
Yes, I have all forms of dyslexia (audio, verbal, written) and a visual processing disorder which renders me relatively unable to read subtitles or moving text. This is why print editions of my books are formatted to be especially easy to read for my fellow visually diminished readers (those with dyslexia, farsightedness, astigmatism etc.).
Do you really type with only two fingers?
Yes, my dyslexia makes it difficult for me to type without looking at the keys. So I type while looking at the keyboard instead of the screen with the middle finger on my right hand and the index finger on my left hand. However, despite this I type extremely fast.
Is your hair really down to you hips? Has it ever been short?
Yep, most of the time. Its length ranges from the small of my back to my lower hip. Nope, I’ve never had short hair unless you count when I was a baby.
What is that silver pendant I see in all your selfies?
It’s called a Wadjet. It’s an over 5,000 year old Egyptian symbol of one of their oldest deities. The Wadjet pendant is intended to protect the wearer in life and in death. My particular pendant was molded from those discovered in King Tut’s tomb and I have worn it nearly every day since I was 12. In a weird coincidence I was on my honeymoon in Seattle, Washington when the King Tut exhibit was there. And was even at the museum for 100 years to the day of the tombs discovery. Pretty cool, right?
