An Update on SMOKE AND SUMMONS, Book 1 of Upcoming NUMINA Trilogy

Hey guys!

I just turned in my copy edits for Smoke and Summons, the first book of my new trilogy! I'm so eager for this book to release. And we finally have a release date! January 22, 2019. With luck the entire trilogy will release that year, so fingers crossed. (This will also be my longest published book, complete at 96,000 words. For reference, The Paper Magician is 65,000.)

While there's no cover yet, you can add the book on Goodreads and even preorder it on Amazon.

What's it about?

As a human vessel for an ancient spirit, Sandis has never lived an ordinary life. At the command of her master, she can be transformed against her will into his weapon—a raging monster summoned to do his bidding. Unlike other vessels, Sandis can host extremely powerful spirits, but hosting such creatures can be fatal. To stay alive, she must run. And in a city fueled by smoke and corruption, she finds a surprising ally.

A cunning thief-for-hire, Rone owns a rare device that grants him immortality for one minute every day—a unique advantage that will come in handy in Sandis’s fight for freedom. But Sandis’s master knows how powerful she is. He’s determined to get her back, and he has the manpower to find her, wherever she runs.

Now, to outwit her pursuers, Sandis must put all her trust in Rone and his immortal device. For her master has summoned more than mere men to hunt her down . . .
