New Release Alert: 'The Soul Stealer' Now Available on Amazon

I'm excited to announce that The Soul Stealer, the fifth and final book of The Geomancer’s Apprentice series, is now available in ebook format on Amazon and Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

The paperback version should be available in early May.

Here's the blurb: 


How do you fight a phantom from a nightmare?

Feng shui practitioners Junie Soong and Joe Tham are still dealing with the fallout from their last case. They are forced at the same time to work for the secretive benefactor who helped them when all seemed lost.

Junie and Joe discover their benefactor is involved in something nefarious. Even worse, Junie has to fend off a mysterious figure who’s stepped straight out of her recurring nightmares.

It isn’t long before the underdog geomancers find themselves caught up in something from the past that could have shocking ramifications for the future. Could something that happened more than 250 years ago hold the key to who killed Joe’s father?

This is the explosive finale to the urban fantasy series featuring Asian magic and mysticism, and terrifying monsters from Asian folklore and mythology.

This means the series is now complete. And that makes me sad.

I have lived and breathed these characters—Junie, Joe, Hu, Noah, Devon—for the last five years. They are old friends at this point. I’ll miss thinking about them when I wake up. I’ll miss dreaming up new adventures for them when I go to sleep.

When I first got the idea of a struggling geomancer and his apprentice, I visualized the books as a series of novellas. I wrote the first two before I decided Junie and Joe deserved full novels of their own.

Of the books, The Soul Stealer was especially hard to write because it had to wrap up so many things. The end also had to be one worthy of my underdog heroes. As those of you who’ve stayed with the books know, they are for the most part ordinary people, called upon to undertake extraordinary feats.

I have enjoyed writing these five books very, very much. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading them. I hope you had a good time. I hope I made your hair stand now and then.

What comes next? A new series is already percolating in my brain. I’m not sure yet where it will go, except I know it will revolve around a small town this time, rather than a big city.

Stay tuned.
