Before I explain, here is the link to purchase:

Here is the link to the book description itself:

From March 30 to April 21 (three weeks), this Aurora Award bundle will run. After that time, I will make Cagebird available on Amazon! So don’t fear if you miss the download this month because you see this post late, or can’t purchase it now. Once it’s up on Amazon that will be permanent. But! I encourage you to check out this bundle for all of the other great writers!

Notes about this edition:

As a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you readers who have stuck with me and this series for literally over a decade, and have asked continuously for the ebook, I reached out to @everking and commissioned special book cover art. Kelsey’s work came to my notice through Tumblr and Twitter, and while it’s impossible for me to fully thank you all individually, I wanted a representative of my readers to be a part of this edition, and what better way than through artwork? I hope you love her depiction of Yuri as much as I do! (If you reblog or use the art anywhere, please credit her).

Also, by creating this ebook, I managed to hopefully fix all of the copyedit mistakes and inconsistencies. If I did my job right, you won’t even notice. I didn’t change anything major, but consider this ebook the definitive version of the novel.

Please reblog, pass along the links, support if you can!

Oh, and as a final note … the ebook edition of Burndive will be out, hopefully at the same time or soon after Cagebird goes live on Amazon. Hopefully these will tide you over until The Warboy!

Yes, I am working on a fourth book in the WARCHILD series. It is from Jos' point-of-view and will pick up directly after CAGEBIRD. It's pretty much entirely plotted out and begun ... but I have half a dozen other projects on my plate so it is slow going for now. But it's happening.

New Universe "Maelstrom's Edge" - and I'm one of the contributors!

Last summer several members of the team had the opportunity to attend WorldCon and give a sneak-peek of Maelstrom's Edge to some of the world's best science-fiction authors. The aim? To showcase our universe and convince them to lend their awesome storytelling talents to our project. Presenting the backdrop, artwork, and prototype models, it's no exaggeration to say that every author we pitched to came away impressed with both our vision and our commitment to building a long-lasting IP. Although we weren't able to snag every author we spoke to (largely on account of prior commitments--some of these folks are booked solid until late 2016!), we did manage to sign up a good mix of highly-acclaimed established voices and up-and-coming superstars.

So, we are delighted to announce that the following authors will be contributing original work to the Maelstrom's Edge universe:
