The Dire Deeds of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits weighs in at about 233,599 words, labor took one year, five months. No pain medication necessary…

Yes, except for some copy editing and formatting, it’s done. The story is told.  The next two books in the trilogy are in the planning stages, but for now, I am actively seeking literary representation and publication. Email

Update: Though I finished ahead of my 2018 Beltane deadline, I’m now in the process of really pruning down the word count. So editing is more extensive than I’d originally planned for this sprawling work of fantasy fiction! Plus, the sudden eruption of lava throughout the Puna district, beginning in May, also caused me to rethink some scenes and scenery, which have now been obliterated by the lava flow.
