Paper Lanterns, the latest book in the series, is now available in print and on Kindle. Links for each are on the Amazon drop-down menu (upper left on desktop view, bottom of page on mobile).

ALSO! The first two books are ON SALE on Kindle, for only 99 cents each, now through the solar eclipse. It’s a perfect time to catch up on the series, if you haven’t already!

2017 Author Appearances

Just realized that my first event for the year is in a few days and I haven’t updated on social media about ANY of my confirmed events this year. Been a bit distracted trying to get Paper Lanterns out…

In any case, here’s what’s confirmed so far:

DL Caught on Video!

So now I have a YouTube channel. It will feature three types of videos:

Mythic Mondays — Short little lessons about different creatures and figures from folklore and mythology all around the world.

Wainright Writes — Discussions about book-related things. Whether about writing/publishing, genres, etc.

Fuzzy Folklore — Some of the odder stories I’ve encountered in my research, reenacted with adorable animal puppets.

Of these, Mythic Mondays will likely be the most regularly updated. But I’ll try to get videos for the others out as often as I can.  Click on over and watch what’s up so far, then subscribe so you can catch all future videos! 🙂

Dragon*con Adventures

There’s a mini Con Report over on my Tumblr, which talks a bit about the panels I was on and other fun stuff at Dragon*con. That concludes my conventions for this year. Check back for updates on my con schedule for next year, once things are confirmed!



Check out the menu bar either on directly to the left (browser) or bottom of the page (mobile) for links to where you can buy the second book in the series, Fractured Masks. It’s currently available in print through Amazon, as well as Kindle. Nook version should be available soon. I’ll update here when it’s also available through all retailers.
