An Update At Last

Sorry for going quiet so long. I’ve been busy working on several new projects. But things are going really well and I wanted to share the latest news with you.

First, if you haven’t heard, book 2 in the Mysteries of Cove series, Gears of Revolution, will be released September 20th. I can’t wait to share it with you. When I first wrote Fire of Invention, the biggest question was where would the story go. I had a pretty good idea of what I thought would happen, but I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. Ultimately my readers will tell me how well I succeeded, but personally, I love how it turned out. And I’m already working on the final book in the trilogy. Here’s the cover of Gears.

Second, I know many of you have been waiting for Fire Keep, the fourth book in the Farworld series, to come out in audiobook format.  Well good news! It has been recorded and proofed and it should start showing up online in the next few days! I think the narrator did a great job.

Third, I am hard at work on the final book in the Mysteries of Cove series. The working title is Embers of Destruction. It will be the longest of the three books and I’m actually playing with doing some different point of view characters. It’s going to be epic!

Fourth, I’ve been discussing a standalone novel with my publisher Shadow Mountain. It’s an idea I’ve been playing with for a while involving the idea of memories. It would be a single book with a POV I haven’t yet tried in a middle grade novel.

Finally, I had such a great time doing store visits with book one, that we’re going to do it again. Working out details now, but I’m hoping to visit all the stores I visited last year, and even more.  Keep an eye here for more info!

Thanks for your support and encouragement. Mysteries of Cove is selling well and the reviews have been very positive. If you’ve read any of my books and haven’t yet rated them on sites like Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, etc. please take a minute and do so. It definitely helps sales. You are all awesome!









  1. Can’t wait for Gears of Revolution!!! And yay for Fire Keep making it to audio format! Happy writing! 🙂

  2. Please place Gears of Revolution on Follett if you can.I’m ordering for next year and my students can’t wait to read this sequal. Let us know if you will be in our area in September. We would love to have you at our school again to talk about the book.

    1. All of my books should be on Follet. Let me know if you don’t see it, but the publisher said it will definitely be there.

  3. The third book will come out Fall of 2017. It is tentatively titled Embers of Destruction, but that could change. All of my books should be on Follett. Definitely let me know if you don’t see them there. And I will let all the schools I visited know when I am coming back through.


    1. Follett has all of your books except the one you plan to publish in the fall. Hope we can schudule a visit in October.

  4. Awesome! Gears of Revolution sounds like an awesome title!

    You know, now that Fires of Invention has been out for a while, I think it would be a good idea to change the background of this blog to fit the “Mysteries of Cove” series. Like, show the dragon partially finished, or something like that.

  5. Third time’s a charm.

    Are we EVER going to see a background format changed to look like Fires of Invention? I think that would be really cool.

  6. Enjoyed “Fires of Invention.”
    Reminded me somewhat of “City of Ember.” At least, I imaged the setting as somewhat similar. (In the movie anyway, I’ve never read the book(s) the movie is based on.)
    Can’t wait for “Gears of Revolution.”

  7. I loved The Fourth Nephite, when will the next book in the series come out. Why did Barnes and Nobel have description of it years ago?

  8. I just finished Fires of Invention, and wow was it incredible. Sadly, I don’t have time to leave a review, but hopefully someday I will.
