My next novel, A Strange and Stubborn Endurance, has a cover! I love it so much – it’s utterly gorgeous, and like the book itself, which is due for release by Tor on 26 July 2022, I can’t wait to be out in the world.

When Lord Velasin vin Aaro of Ralia is summoned home, he doesn’t expect to be offered a diplomatic marriage to a daughter of the ruling family of Qi-Katai in neighboring Tithena—in fact, he dreads the very thought of such a marriage. But when an ugly confrontation reveals Velasin’s preference for men to the Tithenai envoy, the envoy proposes a very un-Ralian solution: that Velasin marry the lord of Qi-Katai’s son instead.

Caethari Aeduria has known for years that marriage lay in his future; he just didn’t think it would happen with the Ralian man intended for his sister. When Velasin arrives in Qi-Katai, it soon becomes clear that an unknown faction is set against their union, while Velasin himself is wrestling with more than culture shock. As the danger escalates, Caethari and Velasin must learn to trust each other in order to survive—and maybe even make their arranged marriage a loving one in the process.

    So I had not kept up with my RSS feed for too long and had missed your last two blog posts until now. I just jumped onto here from “on absences” because I did not know you had a book in the works till reading it and was really excited to know more. Seeing that gorgeous cover was nice enough but then I read the synopsis and went YES!! This is exactly the kind of stuff I want more of with my tastes: I love found love or friendship in arranged marriages as a trope, as well as secret political machinations plots. On top of it, I realized recently that the books I read skew way more on f/f so I was recently looking around for specifically more m/m. In short; there isn’t a single data point about your book that I’m not excited about. I am really glad you got to the point of finishing this book even without reading it myself and I admire your resilience. I so so hope your book is a success and your health continues recovering.
