Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate a new year than with a new book, launching a new potential series? A Curse on the Mountain is my first book from Dreamspinner Press, and I hope not the last. With every new release you would think I would get less excited, but that could not be less true. I think though, I am a little more excited that usual about this release.
Probably because I’ve been working on this book for ten years. Eep.
A lot of writers will tell you that there comes a point when you give up on a book. You put it to bed, in a drawer, in file and you forget about it. I couldn’t forget about this one. I couldn’t let it go. I knew, deep down, that someday I would be ready to write this book the way I knew it should be written, and then I was. I wrote the draft that would be transformed into the book you can now buy and read for yourselves. Sometimes we do have to give up, but I’m so glad I didn’t give up on this one.
Have a wonderful new year!

A Curse on the Mountain
In the cursed city of Var Eldore, perched on a mountaintop surrounded by a frigid swamp, the rain never stops. Former pleasure slave Myr lives in hiding, trying to stay a step ahead of his captor. But there’s more to Myr than he realizes, and destiny has other plans for him. Soon, he counts soldiers, spies, nobles, and wizards among his allies. Their goal is to oppose the king and those who perpetuate slavery, and fight for the freedom of their land. As they uncover secrets and conspiracies, each more tangled than the last, Myr also discovers he has unique abilities to aid their cause—the Redeemers.
As the strength of the Redeemers grows, so does the number of enemies they must face. Each member of their alliance has his or her own demons to battle, and Myr must confront the truth about himself and become the leader they need. Alongside his lover Ryall and the people who have become his family—as well as some unlikely friends—Myr and the Redeemers must prepare for war. If they fall, the city in the rain will follow.
