At Snow’s urging, Never climbs into the Folhan Mountains to search for the Altar of Stars, which he must reach by the new moon. Yet he cannot shake off his doubts; will the answers he seeks even reside with the altar? Or is Snow manipulating him once more?
Today is the launch for The Peaks of Autumn – the 4th installment in Never’s quest for not only his true name but also for a way to break the curse on his blood.
As you probably know by now, I’m thrilled by the cover (thanks, Lin and Vivid Covers) and have been busting to release this one, to get that beautiful artwork out there (and the story itself too) While most of the Never stories up until now have been novella-length, this one is a novel (albeit a short one) and I hope you’ll find the extra time spent with Never to be full of action and surprises.
If you want to read right away and are in a position to financially support my writing you can find purchase links right here:

Once again I'm in debt to both Lin and Vivid Covers for the illustration and title work - awfully happy with this cover! :) I'm especially thrilled with the colour-scheme (well, that and Never's pose - actually, everything!).
To further celebrate the pending release of 'Never 4' I'll be offering a cover-art guessing game featuring the covers from the Never books very soon, an idea I recently saw over at the excellent Fantasy Literature site, so stay tuned :)
