Volatile Bonds is Here!

It’s finally the day! Today is the official launch of Volatile Bonds–the fourth novel in the Prospero’s War series.

Magic is a drug. Dirty deals lead to deadly ends.
When the Magic Enforcement Agency is called out to the scene of a dirty magic lab explosion, a body with a bullet wound is found in the smoldering ruins. As Detective Kate Prospero and her partner, Special Agent Drew Morales, hunt down the killer, they uncover evidence that a dangerous new coven may be operating in the Cauldron.

It’s not long before the bodies start piling up, and the heat is on for the team to make an arrest. Solving the murders will require unraveling dangerous alliances between the city’s dirty magic covens. And if they’re not careful, the new complexities of Morales and Prospero’s own partnership threaten to make a volatile situation downright deadly.

Note: If your favorite local book store doesn’t carry Volatile Bonds, please ask them to order it for you. 

Audiobooks will be available on October 31 from your favorite audiobook retailer. The delay was necessary to ensure we were able to continue with Morgan Hallett, the original narrator of the series. Going forward, the audio won’t have this sort of delay. Thanks for your patience!

I had so much fun revisiting these characters and I’m already hard at work on book 5, which should release next spring. Happy reading!

Bookseller Info for Volatile Bonds

Hello lovely, wonderful, smart booksellers!

First, thank you so much for your support of my books in the past. So many of you have hand-sold my books to future Wells fans, and I am eternally grateful for that.

Second, you might have heard that I’m self-publishing the rest of the Prospero’s War series. Book four is titled VOLATILE BONDS and releases on September 12. In an effort to provide as seamless a transition as possible for my readers, I am making the books available in print, ebook, and audio.

The good news is that this means your customers who want my books can easily buy them from you. The bad news is that since I don’t have the muscle of a Big Five publisher behind me, it’s harder for me to make sure those copies get to you.

To that end, I am using Ingram Spark as my main distribution channel for print. This allowed me to offer bookstores the highest discount as well as making the books returnable. It may take a bit longer to get them out this way, but in the end, I think this is the best possible option for all of us–especially the readers.

The ordering information is below. Thanks!

I also wanted to address a question I’m getting about preorders for this book. Since this is the first time I’ll be self-publishing a project this big, I’m skipping preorders. Until I know how smoothly the upload and distribution process goes with each of the retailers, this is the best way to ensure a smooth release. In the future, I’ll revisit the option.

If you’re worried about missing the release when it happens, there are a few options.

  1. Sign up for my newsletter (upper right side of this web page)
  2. Follow my author page at Amazon (will email when I release a new book)
  3. Follow my author profile on Bookbub (will alert you every time I release a new book or put one on sale)
  4. Follow me on Twitter or Instagram for more frequent news and fun updates

Prospero’s War Series Readalong

With the fourth Prospero’s War book, Volatile Bonds, coming out in September, I thought it was a good time to host a series re-read of the first four stories in the series (three novels and one novella).

If you’re already a fan of the series, this is a great way to refresh your memory about all the twists and turns so far. If you’ve not yet tried the series, this is the perfect time to get onboard. In addition to discussions about each story, we’re also doing fun topic discussions and lots of giveaways. You definitely won’t want to miss this!
