The Unseen Market is Out Today!

The Unseen Market is Out Today!

I’m excited to announce that my new book, The Unseen Market: A Good Goblin Story, is now available! It is the second book in my Good Goblin series, taking place just a few months after The Good Goblin ends. Here is a brief synopsis: Not all goblins are bad. Even so, Ben is not trusted in his new home of Saint Louis. The Green Watch is following him, humans make a wide path as he walks by, and he’s not…

The Second Book is Nearly Here!

The Second Book is Nearly Here!

It’s been a little while since I last posted but I wanted to share some updates. A couple weeks ago, I finished my first round of edits on the second Good Goblin book! The next step will be diving into the developmental editing process, where I’ll get the book in front of select readers for feedback on things like the story structure, plot flow, descriptions of characters, scenes, etc., and most of all, whether it’s actually good or not! After…

Book Review: A Boy Called Christmas

Book Review: A Boy Called Christmas

What a lovely book to read during the holiday season… or any season for that matter! I received this as a free audiobook and now, having listened to it, will be rushing out to buy a copy or two or three. As a lifelong devout lover of Christmas, this book felt as though it was written specifically for me. I think the best way to describe this story would be a winning combination of Harry Potter, L. Frank Baum, and…

Book Review: Mighty Jack and The Goblin King

Book Review: Mighty Jack and The Goblin King

Another Ben Hatke book that I’ve read, another Ben Hatke book that I love. It’s to the point now where I no longer wonder if I’ll like a new book of his, I know for certain before I’ve even opened the front cover. As a fan of goblins, I was particularly interested in this one (my favorite of his still being Nobody Likes a Goblin) and it didn’t disappoint. It deftly picked up where the first book left off and…

1,824!

1,824!

Well, my first Goodreads giveaway promotion is over and I’m absolutely stunned to have received 1,824 entries (including over 600 yesterday on the final day)! The three winners are from the US, Canada, and Venezuela, so I’m very excited to be sending my book out into the wider world. Perhaps more important than the three books that were won though are the 665 people who also opted to add The Good Goblin to their “to-read” list. This is exactly the…
