Hey, thanks for popping in here! I’ve stopped updating the news on this page, so please sign up for my newsletter to hear about all my new releases, sales, bonus freebies, etc. I send out an email about once a month. Thanks!

June 11th, 2016

I have several newΒ releases since the last time I remembered to update this page!

Flash Gold 5: Liberty

Snake Heart (Chains of Honor, Book 2)

The Fallen Empire series, Books 1, 2, and 3. There’s a preview chapter of Star Nomad (Book 1) here.

January 24th, 2016

Shattered Past (the Therrik novel) is ready to roll. There’s an excerpt of the first chapter here, along with all of the purchase links. Also, if you’ve read up to Soulblade in my Dragon Blood series, you’ll want to check out the series of bonus scenes I posted here on the site. Here’s the first one.

January 7th, 2016

Soulblade is out, my editor has a novel featuring Therrik (and a new lady) from the Dragon Blood series, and my beta readers are working on the sequel to Warrior Mage. I’m about to start on the final Flash Gold story too. Lots of fun stuff coming!

December 9th, 2015

For Emperor’s Edge fans, you can pick up Diplomats & Fugitives, a Basilard-centric novel that brings in Maldynado, Amaranthe, and Sicarius, too. If you’re a fan of my Dragon Blood series, the 6th book, Raptor, is available, and there’s alsoΒ a novella featuring Captain Kaika. In the new year, look for the conclusion to the Flash Gold series, and more Rust & Relics and Chains of Honor. Thanks for reading!

July 21st, 2015

As usual, I publish books more frequently than I update this page! You can now grab Warrior Mage (the first in a new series set in The Emperor’s Edge world) and The Blade’s Memory, the fifth book in the Dragon Blood series. Also, look for a new Flash Gold adventure and a new Basilard novel later this summer.

January 1st, 2015

The latest Dragon Blood book, Patterns in the Dark, is available everywhere, and I revealed my pen name for those who are interested in adventures with a few more, ahem, romantic details.

September 29th, 2014

The second novel in my Rust & Relics series is out. Check out the blurb and preview chapter for Thorn Fall here.

August 16th, 2014

Me? Update the news regularly? Naw…

Here are the most recent releases: Blood Charged (third in the Dragon Blood series, which started with Balanced on the Blade’s Edge), Claimed (the fourth Flash Gold novella), and Destiny Unchosen (a new novella that takes place in the Rust & Relics world).

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

May 25th, 2014

More novels! I’m on a roll! Republic is out, and so is Deathmaker, the sequel to Balanced on the Blade’s Edge.

March 31st, 2014

As usual, I’m forgetting to update this page. I have two new novels out since the last update and Republic, a follow-up to the Emperor’s Edge series, is due out in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out Wounded, a contemporary mystery, and Balanced on the Blade’s Edge, a fantasy/steampunk romance. Both of those links have excerpts of the first couple of chapters.

January 4th, 2014

That Flash Gold story is still in the works, but I have three new novellas out that take place in Nuria and introduce some new characters (there will be novels to follow). I’ll also have a contemporary mystery/love story coming out in a couple of weeks.

In early March, look for a new novel featuring Amaranthe, Sicarius, and many of the others. It’s called Republic, and I’m close to finishing the first draft.

September 22nd, 2013

If you’re ready for the start of a new series, check out the first Rust & Relics novel, Torrent. I’m also working on a new Flash Gold story that should release later this fall.

July 14th, 2013

Forged in Blood I is out and II is coming next weekend! This last story will conclude the Emperor’s Edge story arc, but I’m putting up a poll where people can vote and offer feedback as to whether there should be more stories set in this world (and with which characters).

May 8th, 2013

I’ve divided the Emperor’s Edge finale into two books, Forged in Blood I and II, and the first one is in my editor’s hands right now. I expect to have it ready to publish within the next two weeks. I’m writing Part 2 while she edits the first, and I plan to have it out at the end of the summer.

March 12th, 2013

I see I’ve been neglecting this page again. Bad author! Not only is Decrypted, the new sequel to Encrypted, available, but I published an Emperor’s Edge novella in January too. Beneath the Surface takes place between Books 5 and 6 (forthcoming), continuing the adventure from Sgt. Yara’s point of view (and, of course, there’s some Amaranthe and Sicarius action in there too).

I’m also 50,000 words into the first draft of EE6 and I’m shooting for a May/June publication date.

November 4th, 2012

Darn, no helpful sprites or faeries updated this page for me this fall. Well, let me do so belatedly. Blood and Betrayal (EE5) is out. I’ll also be publishing Enigma (a short story with Rias and Tikaya from Encrypted) this weekend. I’m hard at work on Decrypted (the full-length sequel to Engima) and am writing a new Emperor’s Edge novella for NaNoWriMo, so look for that in December or January (it doesn’t have a title yet, but it’ll be from Sgt. Yara’s point of view and will take place between Books 5 & 6)

August 3rd, 2012

I’m doing the final edits on Emperor’s Edge 5 (Blood and Betrayal) and am on schedule for a September launch. In the meantime, I’ve posted a Sicarius background story on my blog, so take a peep if you’re a fan of the assassin: Shadows over Innocence.

April 27th, 2012

Conspiracy, Book 4 in The Emperor’s Edge series, is out! (Click for an excerpt and purchase links)

March 3rd, 2012

Peacemaker, the third novella in the Flash Gold Chronicles, is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. You can read the blurb and an excerpt here.

In other news, I decided to stay independent after receiving a publishing offer from the 47North SF/F/H imprint at Amazon. The details are here. Thank you for your support and help with making the decision!

January 20th, 2012

The Assassin’s Curse, a short story with Amaranthe and Sicarius, is out. I’m trying to finish the rough draft of the fourth Emperor’s Edge novel by the end of January, and then February and March will be big editing months. I’m determined to get Peacemaker out soon, and then I hope to have EE4 ready for release in the spring.

November 23rd, 2011

Deadly Games is out! The rough draft of Flash Gold 3 (Peacemaker) is done, and I’m starting in on the first draft of the fourth Emperor’s Edge book.

October 15th, 2011

I’m working on the final edits for the third Emperor’s Edge novel (Deadly Games) and plan to send it off to my editor in a couple of weeks. Look for the ebook to come out in mid-November.

August 20th, 2011

Hunted, the sequel to Flash Gold, is out! Click the link to read the first ten pages.

I’m working on The Emperor’s Edge Book 3 (no official title yet) and hope to get it out by Christmas.

I’ve also started a Facebook author page, so if you’re a FB user, stop by and say hello. Thanks!

June 12th, 2011

Dark Currents is out! Click the link to read the first chapter and/or pick up a copy. Thanks!

May 22nd, 2011

I have the cover art back for Dark Currents, and the manuscript is off to the editor for proofreading. If all goes well, it should be out in early June. In the meantime, you can check out the first chapter here.

April 1st, 2011

Editing for Dark Currents is underway, and Flash Gold is out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Thanks for taking a look!

March 16th, 2011

I’ve finished a rough draft of Dark Currents, AKA Emperor’s Edge Book 2. Lots of editing to do, but I look forward to tackling it. I’ve also written a short steampunk novella set in the Klondike during the gold rush days, and that will come out in a few weeks as a $0.99 ebook.

I have a podiobook version of Emperor’s Edge coming out (not sure on the date yet, but it should be in the next couple months), so you’ll be able to listen to chapters on iTunes or

In non-writing news, I’ve added a newsletter to the website! If you want to know the day a new ebook is released (and maybe before), then this is where to be.

February 10th, 2011

To answer the question several people have been kind enough to ask, yes, Emperor’s Edge is the beginning of a series, and, yes, I’m working on Book 2 right now! It’s still in the rough-draft stage, but I’m hoping to start editing next month and have it online by the end of spring.

When are more flash gold coming out. I love them as much as the emperor’s edge. Even novellas are great. I have never been the short story type but Lindsay you know how to do it right. Sincerely from a bibliophile.

Thanks, Misha. I’m planning on a new one for this fall. I may do Cedar’s point of view this time. πŸ™‚

Have read your first 2 Emperors Edge books and have enjoyed them.Number 3 will begin immediately.I love fantasy and steam and yours is wonderful.Thank you very much. Garry in Kentucky.

Thanks for giving the books a read, Garry. I’m glad you’re enjoying them!

Am enjoying reading your stories. Must like quirky women.


Glad to hear it, Robert! πŸ˜‰

Just found your website, but have read all your books.
Really enjoy them. I would like to see more in the Relics and Rust series and be able to see the characters develop more. It feels like we are just beginning to get to know them and see how things may play out.

Thanks for following along, Lisa! Yes, poor Delia and Simon were so busy there in that 3-day period that there wasn’t much time to get to know them. I’ll have to work on that in future stories. πŸ™‚

Loved the book! Will be looking for the next in the series


I started reading your Encrypted novel and was hooked from then on! Keep writing you are really great! I know you give a lot of books away free; but, I hope at least some of the money I spend when I buy your e-books actually does go to you!

Thank you, Karissa. Have no fear, I get paid. I have to be able to buy dog food, coffee, and chocolate, you know. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the support!

just finished “Balanced on a Blade’s Edge” I thoroughly enjoyed the story and I hope you continue this storyline in the future. I have been entertained by all of your stories. Best wishes in the future.

Thank you, Ken. I’m glad you enjoyed the story!

Hello. I read all the books from The Emperor’s Edge series, except for Republic since I’m still looking for a store that has an available copy, but I was wondering if you will still continue writing their adventures? Are you planning on writing more books for the series? πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading, Valentine. My designer is working on the files for the print version of Republic, so that should be available soon. We’ll see about more stories after that. πŸ˜‰

Hi Lindsay
I’ve read all you emperors edge books and love them all i hope there are still more books to come they just keep getting better and loved republic keep them coming. I wasn’t sure what to read next but just finished balanced on a blades edge which i enjoyed just as much and just started death maker. I love everything you have written. I just hope there is more emperors edge to come. Good luck with your next books

Thanks for following along, Andrea. There’ll be more set in the EE world, and I’m sure some of our heroes will at least pop in now and then. πŸ™‚

Early in Republic, Amaranthe & Sicarius mention a run in with pirates. It would be interesting to see how they got the drop on Sicarius and how they sunk the pirate ship. Is there any place where that story is as I have ALL of the EE books and am totally obsessed with more. I devoured the whole lot in one week (lunch breaks & after work).

Thanks for reading and stepping by to comment, Josella! Wow, someone else just mentioned those pirates. πŸ˜‰ That story isn’t in print anywhere, though there are a few more details in the holiday story if you haven’t read that yet: (the story is also up at Amazon, Smashwords, etc. for free)

Just finished the third book in the the Dragon Blood series. Lindsay, once again you delivered! Another night with no sleep! Hubby is getting cross with you! I love your style!

Hi Lindsay
I am loving the dragon blood series just finished the latest one as well as the rust and relics again fantastic. I was wondering when the next of the EE series will be getting released can’t wait to see what comes next

Hi, Andrea!

Thanks for checking out the books! EE is finished for now (though I am contemplated a spin-off in the not-too-distant future), but a new series set in Nuria starts up soon. Look for the first book at the end of Feb (I’m just waiting on the cover design). πŸ™‚

Hello Lindsay,
I’ve only just finished the Dragon Blood series and couldn’t put them down, I just loved the storyline and characters. When I saw that book 4 was available I snapped it up and read it through the night. Please tell me a follow up will be coming. I’m dying to know what happens next with the missing king and that rat Therrik.

Hi, Linda! I’m glad you enjoyed them. I’m working on Book 5 now and plan to release it at the end of May. Thanks for following along. πŸ™‚

I came across one of your books when I bought the Epic series of books by different authors. For years I only bought books from authors that I’ve read before. I came across the Epic series and was introduced to different authors. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your novels. I’m working my way through all the books you have written.
Thanks for the good reads, it’s been fun.

Thanks for checking out the anthology, Robert! I’m glad you found some new authors, and I appreciate you taking the time to stop by! πŸ™‚

I just finished the Dragon Blood books 1-5 in a week and loved them. Is there any possibility of a book 6? Would love to see a continuing story with the Dragon, Kylie, and Sardelle! Keep up the awesome work!


I’m glad you enjoyed them, Grayden! There’s a very good possibility (I would say a probability) of a Book 6. πŸ™‚ I have a side novella with Cpt. Kaika in mind too.

I really enjoyed the rusty relics stories. Am hoping for more of them. Rust and Relics was an inspired company name! And the concept appeals to me more than fantasy playing out on some other world. Thanks for the breath of fresh air; I look forward to more adventures with Deli, Simon, and Temi. And, of course, the elves and Anna. Tonto

Thanks, Tonto. I’ll definitely do more in the series! πŸ™‚

Sorry. I meant elves and Naomi. Oh well. They say memory is the third thing to go. I can’t remember the first two…

I realize this is an older post, however I don’t see your Affiliate Disclaimer on any of your pages; which I’m understanding is a requirement.

I really enjoyed your book. It was my first time reading something of yours. I look forward to reading other books by you.

Thanks, Donnie!

just finished all the dragon’s blood books – and want more !! Loved them

That’s awesome, Flo! I’m glad you enjoyed them. I’m working on another project right now, but I do plan to come back and write at least one more Dragon Blood book with the whole gang. πŸ™‚

Hi Lindsay
Just wondering if they will be any more EE books in the future I have loved them all

4 Years waiting for the next Superor’s Edge Audio book.
Will Conspiracy ever be produced in audio format ?

It costs me a fortune to do the audiobooks, Peter, and they don’t make me that much! So far I’m in the hole with the ones I’ve done myself, unfortunately.

I have 2000 printed novels and 1000 ebooks but my 500 audiobooks purchased over the past 6 years tell the best story’s.
Your a good story teller and I believe your story’s are best told in an audio format.
But I appreciate your update.

Thanks, Peter. I do hope to get most of my novels out there eventually. I love listening to audiobooks myself — great for dog walks and road trips!

I can’t find Starfall Station anywhere. It’s the Leonidas short story between Books 2 & 3 in the Fallen Empire Series……any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi, Tony! Right now, it’s only available in the Star Rebels anthology (free). Here’s the Amazon link, and it’s on the other stores as well:

I have really enjoyed all of the Dragon blood series and would like to know will there be more? So far all your book are wonderful reads.

Hi, Sharon! I’ll have a Bhrava Saruth background novella out early in the new year, and I am planning to write an 8th DB book with the whole cast eventually. πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading!

Hi Lindsay

I’m so very very glad to read your above comment as I’ve just re-read all the Dragon Blood series for the 3rd time!!

Ever since I read Emperor’s Edge, I’ve been a fan though initially I found Sicarius to be a sad sack – but as I went along reading the rest of the series, the build-up of each character – quirky or otherwise, the irreverent dialogues, etc, made the series interesting.

I’ve read almost all your books now but for some reason, I love Dragon Blood best & if you could expand the series & write another 10 books, I would happily buy all of them!!

I never used to like Sci-fi but your creative prowess is amazing and got me firmly hooked. Thank you for the hours of exciting reads.

Thanks for following along with the various series, Carol! I definitely will do at least one more DB book. Bhrava Saruth demands it. πŸ˜€ And Ridge is one of my favorites to write too.

Hi Lindsay

Will there be any other emperors edge books I have loved everyone of them


There will be a new Chains of Honor book in the spring, and I’m toying with the idea of bringing Sicarius and Amaranthe in, at least for cameos. πŸ˜€ Then eventually I’ll do a sequel to Diplomats & Fugitives!

How do I sign up for your newsletter? I don’t see any link or sign up area, and there is nothing visible under the wooden “Newsletter” in the right-hand column (I’ve checked in IE, firefox, chrome, and even on another computer).
Even if I go to your facebook page and click on “Newsletter Sign Up” all I see is a blank page.

Huh. I just finished reading Cyborg Legacy, and clicked the link at the back of the book to sign up for the newsletter.
And on my Kindle (an eReader, not a Kindle Fire) Browser of all places, the sign up area is actually there.

Ack, sorry I was slow to respond, Chelly. I’m having a new website done this year, so maybe the form will have fewer problems for people over there!

Just found and read all 8 books in the Dragon Blood series. Good story and writing. I like th way you weave an interesting (and consistent) tale across the entire set. Would love to see more of these characters.

In the meanwhile, I’ll check out some of your other work.

I see you don’t update this site often, but when is Book 4 of Sky Full of Stars coming out?


Just finished reading all of the Dragons Blood books – thank you I loved them. I got the sense that they were written mainly for women (I may be wrong) but they appealed to my feminine side. You must continue, I can’t abide loose ends. Do Ridge and Sardelle get married, what about Raptor and Tolemek not to mention Angulus and Kaika and now Leila and Therrik. What’s the plan regarding the Cofah emporer?
