And I mean that in so many ways. Work progresses on the two books I’m writing: the Fight for Peace, which will be the final book in my dark fantasy trilogy Friends of my Enemy AND on Spark of Defiance, book 1 in my new epic fantasy trilogy Games of Fire.
But I also mean on my next release!
If you haven’t heard, I’m separating from my publisher. While most of those changes affect formatting (I have to reformat everything) and where my books will be available (on May 12th they will once again be on Smashwords, Barnes&Noble, iTunes, and Kobo!), it also frees me up to begin the release of the short stories that lead up to After the War, book 1 of Friends of my Enemy. Soon, very soon… as in the next couple weeks, these short stories will be rolling out in quick succession for FREE! And somewhere in there will be the compilation of all 11 short stories called Stories from the War available as a pre-order.
I’m very excited and have cover art finished and am working on final edits. If you want to stay up to date on progress for my writing or releases, check out my Wednesday Writing Update posts! If you have questions, drop me a line on my contact page. I really do respond!
And there will be some other news you’ll hear about here soon… I can’t wait to share!

“The reader is taken to those fantastical places populated by fantastical creatures, courtesy of Autumn Birt’s unerring knack of description, and the heroes and heroines come alive thanks to realistic dialogue.” – Stewart 5 stars on Amazon
“Just finished Born of Water book 1. Amazing, can’t wait to read the next one. Instant fan, keep up the amazing work!!!” – Edward Brady

“I loved two battle scenes in particular. The battle at the Temple of Dust and the battle at the Temple of Wind. Fire versus water. Air versus Earth. Thrilling!” – Futureboy 4 stars on Amazon
“I’m biased, because this is exactly my sort of book. But maybe that bias should make me more critical…but there is absolutely nothing to dislike about Born Of Water…We’re not simply reading about this quest…we’re there with them.” – Stewart Bint 5 stars on Smashwords
“I’m halfway through Rule of Fire and I’m already looking for news of the next book. I’ll admit to being a fantasy addict, which means I’ve read an awful lot of books over the years from Tolkien onwards and I can honestly say your storytelling and character development are up there with the best of them. Keep writing (please!).” – Ian Leggattby Weifarer
