Autumn Equinox – 2 Releases!

Happy release day! Book releases and launches are always super exciting and doubly so when they come in twos!

Today on this the Northern Hemisphere’s Autumn equinox, I hereby release to you two prequel stories in the Crown of Seasons series. “Coming Home” is a short story and Fealty is a full novel, both featuring the main characters of the upcoming, currently-untitled Book One.

I love immersive worlds featuring characters full of depth. I love interconnected stories and series that become rich tapestries. You can read as much or as little as you’d like. Chapter One of “Coming Home” is an excellent introduction to the protagonists and their friendship and history. You can read Chapter One freely either here on the site or as the Prologue first episode of Fealty which is being serialized on Kindle Vella.

Without further ado, the two releases! Happy equinox!

“Coming Home”

Coming Home” is a prequel short story introducing the characters of the Crown of Seasons world.

Two weeks ago, Abend watched helplessly as her parents were slaughtered in the chaos following the High Queen Autumn’s murder. Orphaned and on the run in a wintry mortal forest, Abend stumbled upon an ondine who promised to take her back to Faerie–but for a price. If she agreed to protect a certain faerie child with her life, then she herself would be given protection, shelter, and what’s more…a home.

But Abend had failed to prevent her parents’ death. How could she now hope to protect a girl who is prophesied to become queen? The reigning queen of this backwater realm of Faerie has plans to commit a murder of her own….


Prequel Novel. Takes place after the first chapter of “Coming Home.” It is recommended to read chapter one of “Coming Home” first. However, the chapter is included as a prologue both on Kindle Vella and here on the site.

When a murderous faerie prince invites Abend to attend a masquerade to court her favor in preparation for her swearing her oath of fealty, Abend knows exactly what to say: No. The problem is, murderous princes tend not to take “no” for an answer….

Read on Kindle Vella.

Fealty is being serialized on Kindle Vella starting on the solstice, September 22, 2022. New episodes will be uploaded most days Mon-Fri until complete. The first three episodes are free to read.

You can also read Fealty here on the site.

Happy equinox!
