FFO book 2, LAST BASTION, comes out April 30!


The long-awaited sequel to FOREVER FANTASY ONLINE is coming April 30!

Bastion was supposed to mean safety. It was supposed to mean a break from fighting for their lives and a chance to talk to someone who might actually know what’s going on. Access to their gold and some beer would have been nice, too.

They got none of those things. When Tina and James arrive in the capital, they find a city on fire in more ways than one. Players and non-players hunt each other in the streets, while the king who controls the city’s all-powerful artifact cowers from the chaos in his castle. Desperate to warn somebody about the Once King’s coming invasion, James wants to try to talk to the king anyway, while Tina just wants to meet the royal portal keepers who might be able to send them home.

It shouldn’t be hard to get an army of the world’s best-geared players through one city, but when they discover that the captain of the Royal Knights has been massacring low-level players in revenge disguised as justice, James and Tina will have to decide what is more important: the lives of their fellow gamers, or the stability of this world’s last great city. Both choices deserve a champion, but with the Once King’s armies closing in, taking the wrong side may doom everyone to an eternity as slaves to the Ghostfire.

But we're not done yet. As you can see, we have an amazing new cover style, and we've updated book one to match. Check it!!

Oh yeah, that's the stuff!

It's been a while, but we're back and adjusted for inflation with not one, but two covers! That's right, FFO has a new look and one hell of a sequel. It took a long time (a looooong time, because this book is looooong) but if you like your Fantasy epic and your stakes sky high, this is the book for you!

If you enjoyed FOREVER FANTASY ONLINE, you're going to love LAST BASTION. It comes out on April 30, and for all you Audible fans, the ebook and audio versions are coming out on the same day! (See? We're, like, totes professional now! ^_^)

You should be able to preorder the audio version soon. We'll post a link on Twitter/Facebook when it pops, so follow if you want to be the first to know.

I just finished the second DFZ novel as well, so it's looking like 2019 is going to be a summer of books (which, as we all know, is the best kind of summer)! Anyway, I really hope you'll give LAST BASTION a try. I know I'm biased, but I think it's a hell of a book 2. I just know you're going to love it!

Thank you as always for being our readers! We hope you check out the book, thank you for being part of the mailing list, and we'll talk to you soon!

Yours always,

MINIMUM WAGE MAGIC is out in audio!

Finally! It's here!

Audio boooooook!

Narrated by Emily Woo Zeller

The DFZ, the metropolis formerly known as Detroit, is the world's most magical city with a population of nine million and zero public safety laws. That's a lot of mages, cybernetically enhanced chrome heads, and mythical beasties who die, get into debt, and otherwise fail to pay their rent. When they can't pay their bills, their stuff gets sold to the highest bidder to cover the tab.

That's when they call me. My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I'm a Cleaner: a freelance mage with an art history degree who's employed by the DFZ to sort through the mountains of magical junk people leave behind. It's not a pretty job, or a safe one - there's a reason I wear bite-proof gloves - but when you're deep in debt in a lawless city where gods are real, dragons are traffic hazards, and buildings move around on their own, you don't get to be picky about where your money comes from. You just have to make it work, even when the only thing of value in your latest repossessed apartment is the dead body of the mage who used to live there. 
It was a long wait, but Audible has finally released the audio version of MINIMUM WAGE MAGIC and it is awesome! You can get it on Amazon or direct from Audible.com!

To all my audio fans, thank you for your patience, and for my Vikas Adams diehards, don't fear: Vikas knows Emily and texted me to let me know how excited he was that she was my narrator! I was really picky about who got to read because Vikas was so perfect, but I think Emily did a great job. Give it a listen and I think you'll agree!

Thank you as always for reading and listening! If you haven't already, I hope you'll come back to the DFZ and give MINIMUM WAGE MAGIC a try!

Yours always,

MINIMUM WAGE MAGIC is the first in a new series set in the same universe as my Heartstrikers books, but you don’t need to read those stories to enjoy this one. The book was written to stand by itself, but if you would like to start from the official beginning, check out NICE DRAGONS FINISH LAST. I promise you won't be sorry!
