Wow, what a time these past few months have been, and how unbelievable it is that as I write this post, the last book sits on my computer, waiting to see the world. I've received a few emails over the past few nights asking me about Whynne and what comes next. It's very funny, because … Continue reading The Future of the Chronicles of Whynne and a General Update
A pretty common question that I get asked a lot here. The answer is a pretty clear yes. I've had a lot of people who have really enjoyed my world building sort of side eye that, because too often romance books are the butt of the industry's jokes. But the joke is actually... on you. … Continue reading Are These Kissing Books?
I always wanted to give readers a little peek into what Luka's life was like pre-Wren knowing. So, included in the omnibus edition next month and available here, I present the Note, the first amongst three extra stories related to the Chronicles of Whynne. In it we sort of get an idea of the two's … Continue reading The Note: An additional Ink and Foxglove short.
Today we're talking about the Gancanagh, which too me is just like a super cool topic and something that really ended up shaping the series. The original trajectory for Quill and Cobweb was so much different before these creatures and it really became something that ended up shaping the story of Whynne.

Now the forest burns at the … Continue reading Coming July 30th, Paper and Smoke, the final book in the Chronicles of Whynne Trilogy!
Bugul Noz. Oh my god, Bugul Noz. When you get into characters in the Chronicles of Whynne, I definitely have some clear favorites, but in five seconds or less, Bugul Noz beat them all. I originally wasn't going to include him at all, he was just a funny story I read about in my research … Continue reading Bugul Noz, the Loneliest Seelie.
The sequel to Ink and Foxglove, Quill and Cobweb, is releasing June 26th!
It is a secret known by three people (and now I suppose my fans) that in the original draft of Ink and Foxglove, Kristin was evil. There was no Camden, Theo was still a looming background threat (at the time he was also constantly drunk), and Adam was a shell of the character he would … Continue reading Awful Ideas and Writing
It had been night once... Long before I was born, a human queen ended the endless darkness and drove out the Unseelie, pushing those that remained back into the forest surrounding the Kingdom of Whynne. Ever since, there have been whispers from humans and Seelie alike that the beasts will return to reclaim the stolen … Continue reading Ink and Foxglove, available May 19th!
There's been a minor setback with the cover, and I'll be posting both here and on my Instagram once everything is settled! I still wanted to talk about Ink and Foxglove today, so here we go! What is Ink and Foxglove? Ink and Foxglove is the beginning of the Chronicles of Whynne, a trilogy taking … Continue reading About Ink and Foxglove
