Sacred Guardian is a m/m fantasy series that tells the story of young Kaori Sansa, who rises unexpectedly to the throne of the kingdom of Kazure, and his bodyguard Hunter, who is devoted to Kaori in more than just the obvious ways. Together they are faced with rebelling lords, organized criminal elements, a brewing war with a neighboring nation, and more in a breathtaking world filled with magic, intrigue, and fantastical creatures:

Summary: The country of Kazure bows under the shadow of war as the Shindori lords from the east continue to wage their holy crusade. Kaori Sansa, the High Lord of Kazure, is desperately searching for a way to defend his people while he struggles to determine which of the lords in his own country can be trusted to see the war through.

Both men must fight to uphold their oaths—both to Kazure and to each other—while the forces gathering around them are doing everything in their power to bring them down.

Just a note that I will be pushing out updates to Through the Last Door and Eater of Dreams on Kindle soon, to prepare for the upcoming release of The Soul Forge. There have been minor editorial changes to each book to make the formatting more consistent across the series (for example, mage classifications were capitalized in one book and not in the next), and also the new title has been added to the series list at the beginning of each book. I also re-proofread them and corrected a couple of typos that I found.
So be sure to download the new updates if you don't have automatic updates turned on, to ensure that you'll have the fullest experience while reading these stories. You can expect to see the updates within the next couple of days.
The Soul Forge will be released on Monday, April 30th, although it will be available for preorder prior to that date. I'm also planning some promotions and giveaways throughout the month, so you'll have an opportunity to win some free books! I'll post more information here as it becomes available.
I'm really excited about this newest book in the series. I can't wait to share it! :)

My wonderful cover artist Jay Aheer has surprised me with a gift: promo graphics for my Sacred Guardian series! Check out these lovelies:
Aren't they beautiful? I've used them to create a new webpage for the entire Sacred Guardian series, which you can find HERE. Check it out when you get the chance, if only to swoon over the beautiful cover artwork all in one place. Jay Aheer has an amazing amount of talent!
I've also redesigned my Novels list, arranging the different series together so the books are more easy to navigate. I was looking at the webpage the other day when I was updating it with The Soul Forge's new cover and realized I have a surprising amount of books listed there, and that they should probably start getting organized in some way. Who would have thought a few years ago that I would have an entire page full of books that I've written? The mind boggles (or at least mine does ^_^).
You can click the link at the top of any of these webpages to see the new Novels page, or you can just click HERE. So many pretty covers! :)
