Gen Con 2019

I just got back from Gen Con, which is probably one of the largest gaming conventions in the US. Upward of 70k people attended, and the size of the exhibition hall was easily 10x larger than any other con I’ve been to.

Regrettably, I didn’t bring many books to sell, yet managed to secure several online orders. I had a blast, however, meeting readers and fellow authors.

Because of a server snafu, I have to rebuild this page.

In the meantime, here’s where to start with my stuff:

There are currently four entry points into the Legends of Tivara, with a fifth coming in October.

Thorn of the Night Blossom is Part 1 of the Scions of the Black Lotus series. It is shorter, serialized fiction, which takes place 10 years before the core stories. It follows Jie when the half-elf spy is a courtesan-in training in the elite Floating World.

Prelude to Insurrection also stars Jie. It is a prequel to any of the core series, though it directly sets up:

Songs of Insurrection, Book 1 of the Dragon Songs Saga. It follows Kaiya, an awkward princess with the perfect voice to evoke the lost magic of Dragon Songs. In a secondary arc, Jie uncovers a conspiracy.

Masters of Deception, Book 1 of the Dragonstones Chronicles, explores the pyramids and forms of magic in Tivara. On a mission to root out a traitor, Jie meets with a Diviner, Sorceress, and Paladin. Even though they all have sometimes-conflicting agendas, they must work together to protect a dragonstone.

Crown of the Sundered Empire, Book 1 of Heirs to the Sundered Empire, releases this October. It follows the conflict between the Bovyans, a race of men descended from the mortal son of the Sun God, and they Eldaeri, the Sun God’s Chosen People. Of course, Jie figures prominently in it.
