And here is the livestream of Ships of Merior, with Angie, Blaise, PL Stuart, and Janny:


Upcoming dates and readalongs/livestreams to pay attention to:

SATURDAY March 11th at 9:30 LIVESTREAM with Angie the bookaholic’s channel - deep dive for Warhost of Vastmark as that readalong continues with Blaise/Under the Radar books and PL Stuart/PageChewing.

ICFA in Orlando, mid month, I will be attending for the first three days of the conference and PARTYING to celebrate the turn in of Song of the Mysteries, should occur on Monday/Tuesday of next week.

SATURDAY March 25th: LIVE CHAT 9: am ET, on the Wars of Light and Shadows novella THE GALLANT (available in the Paravia studio shop in e formats). With Philip chase, (Philip Chase channel on youtube) Johanna Reads, and PL Stuart.

APRIL - readalong on the internet forum kicks off - Page Chewing, with Steve Talks Books, this is a small, sweet, inclusive community of readers, gamers, youtubers, Indie authors, and in general lovers of fantasy. Will be intimate and sweet.

TO BE ANNOUNCED: date will be set up after ICFA - the long anticipated read along with Dr AP Canavan and Dr Philip Chase and Jimmy Nutt of Nuttworks and Johanna Reads - long planned discussion for Curse of the Mistwraith taken at a scholarly level - these guys know their depth of prose, and what will come out of this deep dive discussion will be special.

I expect to be ‘here’ more often as the deadline pressure slackens off. There is a LOT waiting in the wings to play with - artwork coming for several books, a brand new standalone, AND: short works related to Athera I’ve had on the back burner forever! There is so much left to explore, PAST of the series and FUTURE…but that will have to wait for the pub date, and I should have an active discussion on that issue very soon. Watch for updates.


Janny sat down for a wide-ranging interview with John of the “Talking Story” YouTube channel last night.

And an earlier interview with Beard of Darkness that slipped under the radar, from January 2024:

Forgive me if this isn’t the right topic for this, but I posted a thread about how to get started with Janny’s works over on the r/fantasy subreddit to help build exposure since Song of the Mysteries released tomorrow - go light it up!
