Knights, Pirates, and Assassins
The Lords' Gambit Series is shifting to a brand new character and storyline once again in Volume Three: Vanguard of Justice, bringing knights, pirates, and assassins together in a high seas mythological fantasy adventure.
Freya, our newest main character, is the commander of the Order of Holy Knights.
Freya has been tasked with one primary duty: serve as an advisor, right-hand, and protector of Crown Princess Mariabelle, who is set to take her rightful place on the throne at the turning of her twentieth spring.
When the treasonous King Regent schemes to overthrow his niece's right to the throne, Freya stands between the princess she loves and the sure destruction awaiting her people.
Pirate King Seba and his crew of shadows about The Celestial's Tears are the terror of both sea and land.
Said to be wraiths, the crew (under the watchful, shadowy eyes of First Mate Caitlin), is loyal to the estranged Prince of the shadow kingdom Kertopa.
When the King Regent of the lords' United Provinces offers Seba an opportunity to finally retake his throne in Kertopa in exchange for whisking Princess Mariabelle away, the Pirate King does not expect a Holy Knight to be the one standing in his way.
Pirate or Knight, Princess or Prince those who board The Celestial's Tears never come back the same. Assassins hail from the ship, or at least that's what the legends say.
To return to Kertopa and break a dark curse thousands of years in the making, Freya finds herself making a deal with the shadows themselves to save her Princess, and their entire kingdom.
When the price for failure is her own soul in exchange, but success only sets the stage for world-wide war, Freya and Seba must decide how much having the right royal on the throne is truly, in the end, worth sacrificing.

Big Writing Decisions
I have some big writing decisions to make in the coming weeks.
A couple weeks ago, my newsletter subscribers got a sneak peek at a big project coming in 2023.
This project has huge implications for me as a writer, including:
-Branding decisions (what genres I have found myself in love with and wanting to write the most in over the coming year)
-Release schedule decisions
-Decisions about whether to self-publish or traditionally publish, primarily
-And decisions about how I am going to balance my life with my writing in general.
I plan to publicly announce more about my secret project in late October/early November 2022, but if you'd like to stay in-the-know early (and hear more writing news), come join my newsletter HERE. I'll send you a free book for signing up, and you'll be one of the first to know what big writing decisions I end up making.
Thank you all for being a part of my writing journey!
I know we're living in the digital age, but I can't help but get excited when I get a physical birthday card! It just makes the whole day so much brighter.
That's why I still send physical cards when I can, and why I'd be honored to add you to my birthday card list for 2022!
If you're thinking, "Eek! No way! You just want my information to spam me with marketing stuff!" I want to assure you that this is in no way the case.
This birthday card list is solely that: birthday cards only, for 2022 only.
It will include a hand-written message with a birthday greeting made out personally to you. These cards are available to send internationally (permitting your country allows mail from the US). They are free, as well (limit 1 per reader).
I will NOT be mailing you ANYTHING else unless you give me explicit permission to do so below. I will also not store your information without your express permission below. Once your card is in the mail, your address will be deleted from my mailing list.
*Sign-ups closed on February 15th 2022. If you'd like to stay in the loop about other reader perks that come up, please sign up for my newsletter HERE (I'll send you a free copy of Splitting Dusk: A Splitting Worlds Novella for signing up, too!).*
