hi, readers dear! You’ve seen the title of the post–Sword of the Outsider is out now, weighs in at just under 70,000 words of adult fantasy, and is available to purchase in various eBook formats at any of the following links. Some, like Barnes & Noble, may need a day or two to come online, but that’s no reason why I can’t share them today:
Barnes & Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/2940165007958

I don’t think I can do better as a sales pitch than the descriptions from the store pages themselves, so here they are:
A spasm of chance. A self-casting shadow. A band of adventurers trying too hard to act selfless. In a feud born out of bitter pasts, what can victory mean?
When a wandering mystic comes to the village of Shailavach in the isolated plane of Jurnost, her otherworldly ways spark conflict with its wardens: the Vanguard and their leader, the self-titled hero Gerakaeto Mohs.
The mystic has stories to tell, and wishes only to tell them in peaceful communion with living things–or so she says. But the umbral blade she carries is no mere storyteller’s tool. And some purposes, once found, will always find us in their turn…
Ichril Kagorat is a psionic and a demon, wielding a sword of mythic origins and the woken power of his soul. The mystic is a stranger. The Vanguard are not the friends he wanted to believe they were. Now he must decide which path he wants to risk–especially when he may have to walk it alone.
Vletru Vchlol is godsworn to the service of an ever-demanding deity, a man raised in a matriarchal society. Who is this warrior marked with Baesht’s Wheel? How can one convinced that truth is whatever the heavens say it is ever find their own?
As facades drop and violence sings its bewitching hymn, only one truth will prove universal: none of them will face the battles, or the enemies, they thought they wanted to.
