GLEAM UPON THE WAVES is coming March 30th

Based on emails I’ve gotten over the last few years, I suppose this is the moment many of you had been anticipating. I’m very proud to announce that Gleam Upon the Waves is done and will be arriving on March 30th, 2021. Nope, that’s not one long typo. It’s actually happening, and I can’t stop smiling about it. In twenty-seven days, you’ll be able to return to Lovat and the world of the Territories and join Waldo Bell and the crew of the Bell Caravans on their next adventure.

eBook Preorders are live!

You can already preorder the digital edition of Gleam Upon the Waves should it strike your fancy. (And it should.) Use any of the links below, and your eBook will magically appear on your e-reader on launch day.

Paperbacks are coming!

Paperback editions will land on launch day and they’re looking really good. Currently, the book is sitting at the 450-page mark, making Gleam Upon the Waves the longest book of the series (so far). I think all you paperback readers will be pleased.

The first print proof arrived last week – feels so solid in-hand

Read a Sample Chapter Tomorrow!

Tomorrow I’ll be releasing a sample from Gleam Upon the Waves. So for those interested, you’ll be able to dive in a little early and discover what’s happening in the city of Lovat. As before, this will be the Prologue. It’s a little different from the previous prologues—I think you’ll dig it. [Update: It’s live! You can read it over here.]


But wait, there’s more!

I can’t tell you how great it feels to finally announce this. I hope you’re as excited as I am.

There’s lots more coming over the next few weeks, as well. I have all sorts of stuff planned between now and the 30th. New swag and bookmarks are on their way. I’ve assembled a themed playlist to tantalize your ears, and I’ll be sharing that soon. There will be new Old Haunts to visit. Plus, I’m planning on doing a live reading from the book—just need to figure out when to do it and where I want to host it. Pull up a chair and stick around. Gleam Upon the Waves is nearly here.

The Bell Forging Cycle

The Route Is Open

Yay! News! After some late nights and some web work I loathe doing I am excited to announce the launch of The Bell Forging Cycle website. The plan is to make this the central location for Wal’s story and the world of the Territories. It’s nice to finally see it up and running. It’ll be fun to watch it expand as I write the next four books in the series. (Aiming for a total of six.)
