Starting Sunday with an announcement: For the next few weeks, posting on this blog and other social media will be significantly less than usual, mostly likely just a Sunday catchup post every week. A secret project is involved, but I can’t say more than that for the time being, and there is a deadline that needs to be met. When I can say more, I will, and I think it’ll be worth the wait. More after the cut, including paperback news! Continue reading

Welcome to Willow Wednesdays! Featuring art by Willow, the cover artist for the Monkey Queen series, with her kind permission! Read on after the cut for more! Continue reading
Starting off Sunday with this news: The new Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, is now available on DriveThruFiction! In case you missed Michiko and Beth’s latest adventure, head over here for a full list of buying links! More after the cut.
Quick update: Work has started on the paperback edition of The Crown Of Kylthena. Hopefully, I’ll have proofs in hand in the next two weeks, and after that, I can announce a release date. Also, sorry for the lack of posts last week; I will try to catch up this week.
Meanwhile, I wanted to thank Meri Amber, who featured me with several other fine people on a post on her blog last week! Check that out, and then poke around her website if you’re not familiar with her music. She’s one of my very favorite geek pop acts, and if you’re wondering why…try this song out.
The Doubleclicks have a new nifty video series called “You Should Write A Song About That,” where they interview someone and then write a song about something the interviewee suggests. This first installment is about Anandibai Joshi, and you’ll find out more by watching the video below.
Here’s a brand new (lyrically, anyway) track from the PDX Broadsides! Recommended, especially for Labyrinth fans.
And finally: Lucia Fasano (reminder: her Radio Silence album is quite good) claims that she put together this Squirrel Girl costume from things she found in her closet. I’ll keep her secret identity quiet if you will. [winks]
We’re taking another break from our usual Sunday catchup format (though a few things may slip in) to keep you posted on doings with The Crown Of Kylthena, the new Monkey Queen book! If you missed the news from earlier this week, Michiko and Beth’s new adventure is out now! The post with buying links has been updated with links for Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Indigo / Chapters, Fnac and Angus and Robertson; click here, or search your favorite ebook retailer for “Robert Dahlen”! More after the cut! Continue reading
Yes! You read that correctly! The sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, will be published this Friday, October 14! Many, many thanks to Keri Knutson, and to Jason and Marina Anderson with Polgarus Studios, for getting things fixed in a hurry and allowing me to bump up the publication date! (And thanks to Willow, who is awesome!) Here’s the corrected cover, and if you missed the preview of the first two chapters, click here! See you on Friday, when the buying links are ready!
Due to an unfortunate complication, I’ve had to push back the publication date for The Crown Of Kylthena until next Tuesday, October 18. The reason why? Short answer: I screwed up. Long answer? After the cut! Continue reading
The Sunday catchup returns, with this announcement: The sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, will be published this coming Tuesday, October 11!
“Whatever it takes to rescue Beth, I’ll do it.”
The Crown of Kylthena is a legendary relic from the Lost Lands of Earth. The stories say it brings great power to its wearer. Michiko Koyama, the hero known as the Monkey Queen, is sent to retrieve the crown along with her girlfriend and partner in adventure Beth McGill, only to find that it’s been stolen. They’ll have to hop from world to world and team up with the enigmatic wizard Alasdair Sterling to get it back…but can he be trusted?
And even if they find the crown, the secrets it holds could tear Beth away from Michiko…or lead to their doom.
It’s been a long wait, but the sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, is just days away from being published! To get you ready, here’s a sneak preview – Chapters One and Two of Michiko and Beth’s latest adventure! I hope you enjoy! Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.
(Warning: As with all the Monkey Queen books, this preview contains spoilers for the previous books and for the series as a whole. If you haven’t read the earlier books, proceed at your own risk…)
