The Seattle Book Review has given my flintlock fantasy, DREAD PIRATE ARCANIST, a 5/5 score! I’m super thrilled, and stoked, and I just can’t stop smiling, you guys! 😀
Wow, fun times, everyone! My flintlock fantasy novel, KNIGHTMARE ARCANIST, is the solo winner in the fantasy category for the New Apple Award! 😀
