Daemons and Monsters

As spring gives way to summer, I’m happy to announce that two of the projects I’ve been working on have progressed towards publication. Both are set in fantastical worlds, with Grimoire featuring summonable daemons while the land of Under the Midnight Sun is filled with larger-than-life monsters.

Grimoire, the Fate World of Adventure that I co-wrote with Christopher Caporaso, was released earlier this month:

Daemon summoning is banned in Ganseldom by religious and civil authorities alike, but that’s never stopped ambitious nobles and warlocks. Daemons are invaluable minions when there are battles to win, secrets to steal, and coups to enact. With the recent invention of the printing press and increased literacy rates, grimoires containing the rites for daemon summoning are more common than ever.

Now you too can join the ranks of warlocks, discreetly selling your services to those rich enough to afford them. But beware, as daemons’ capricious cleverness may lead their masters to downfall rather than glory. Can you control your daemon and please your masters?

The publication date for Under the Midnight Sun, a gay fantasy romance novella filled with warriors and monsters, has been set for August 15th:

The eldest son of Thunderhill’s warrior-kings, Otto Johanson lives for battle but has forsaken love since the death of his partner three years ago. Still, when the Midsummer festivities bring nomadic reindeer herders back to town, Otto can’t help but notice the handsome, if sullen, Lukas.

Tension rises between them during the annual tournament, but when a terrible attack devastates Thunderhill, Otto and Lukas must put aside their burgeoning rivalry to embark on a dangerous quest that may be the town’s only hope of survival.
