Discover the origin of the Rook . . .
Because it is just raining news around here, in addition to yesterday’s cover reveal for Labyrinth’s Heart and call for artists for the pattern deck (please spread the word!), we have EVEN MORE excitement for you today:
My Rook & Rose novelette “Pearl’s Price” is out at last, in the anthology When Swords Fall Silent! Because the anthology’s theme is “assassination,” “Pearl’s Price” tells the story of the origin of the Rook and the downfall of Kaius Rex. If you’ve read The Liar’s Knot you’ve already gotten some hints of that (and more will be coming in Labyrinth’s Heart), but this is your chance to experience the tale in full . . .
The electronic and audio editions are unfortunately only available from Amazon, as near as I can tell (US ebook / US audiobook / UK ebook / UK audiobook), but there is also a Kickstarter underway right now for paperback and hardcover versions. This entire thing is a charity project, with net profits (including from the Kickstarter) going to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the research they do into childhood diseases, so it’s very worth supporting just on those grounds! (But, of course, I hope you enjoy the story, too.)
