It's July 1st here in Australia and that means that Never's 6th adventure is out now :)
You can grab your copy from Oz retailers here (or the same link works for international buyers when your timezone clicks over too).
Since this is the one where Never learns his true name at last, I'm pretty excited to see how everyone reacts :) As part of release day, here's a preview of a map for Never's world too - it's a partial view of the full map, which was a kickstarter reward.
You can also win a paperback or ebook copy of the story by signing up to receive updates about Never's 7th adventure - visit my newsletter if you're interested!
Just an update to let you know that the Phoenix of Kiymako can now be pre-ordered across various retailers, so check out this link if you missed the Kickstarter 🙂
Today Greatmask launches :) It's available right now in the southern hemisphere and in a few hours if you're up north. So, right to the links then! If you'd like to grab a copy you can click here:
OR if you're new to the series, Book 1 (City of Masks) is 99c during launch week or free via Kindle Unlimited any old time.
A quick but sincere 'thanks' to all who helped me with the any of the books in series, at any step of the way, but especially with Greatmask over the last two years.
Before I take a break (in order to focus on finishing Never's story and also to get some reading done) from the Bone Mask world, which I do plan to return to, I'd like to re-post something I wrote a little while back about the story:
I’m keen to release this one so I can see what folks think of the trilogy’s ending.
Announcing the pre-order for both River God
and the Book of Never ebooks!
You can currently pre-order River God via most retailers for $1 but after release on July 1st, the price will climb back up to to $2.99.
While a print version of the Book of Never is still due for release on July 1st, at the moment, the ebook is the only edition available for pre-order, for around $6. On July 1st, it'll stay at $6 which should be about a buck cheaper than buying all three titles individually :)

The Amber Isle (Book of Never #1) is unleashed!
If you're looking for a fun read that's a little bit like having Indiana Jones in an epic fantasy setting (with more sarcasm) then you might enjoy The Amber Isle.
Roguish 'Never' is on a quest to lift a curse on his blood and to learn his true name; but upon joining a group of treasure-hunters he soon finds himself unearthing world-altering secrets that have long lain dormant within the mysterious Amber Isle.
The Amber Isle is the first in a five book series that I'm releasing over the course of 2016. They'll start off as novellas and by book four and five, be closer to novel length. Each adventure has a distinct setting (such as the Amber Isle itself or the birch forests in Book 2) and will be closely linked by the main quest; Never's search for the truth about his name and his past.
I chat a little about the book during an interview with J. Evan Stuart if you'd like to read a little about behind the scenes have a look :)
I'm really happy with my pre-release reviews (thanks to the readers who were generous enough to read the story early!) You can check out one of them below:
Space and Sorcery
And also a few reviews over at Amazon too:

And for those of you interested in grabbing a copy of the ebook, here are some purchase links. The Amber Isle will be on sale for about $1 for launch week and then go up in price. (An omnibus print edition of books 1-3 will follow post July.)
