Today is a super special day. Nearly two years after the release of my last book, A Home for Wizards, I am extremely pleased to officially be announcing my next book, which will kick off a brand new series, Longtails: The Storms of Spring. Below is the first teaser poster just released at New York Comic Con. Jump down further to learn more about the series!
What is Longtails?
Longtails is a new series which tells the story of mice living in a dangerous world in the far future, long after humanity has gone extinct. As they try to survive, they’ll encounter all sorts of different animal clans. Some who have learned to harness the power of technology from the old world and others who have learned to control magic and the elements. Based on high fantasy and my love of tabletop role-playing games, Longtails is, at its heart, an adventure story, and this coming April, I hope you will join their journey and Answer the Call to be one of the prestigious mouse soldiers, protectors and journeymen known as The Longtails.
What Comes Next?
You might be thinking that April is quite far away, but as I put the finishing touches on this book, I can’t help but think it will be here before we know it! That being said, over the coming weeks and months, I’ll be using this page AND our new Longtails Facebook page to share character profiles, character concept art (Done by the fabulous Dexter Allagahrei) and short stories set in the Longtails universe. This will also be a way for me to share updates on the book and make sure you guys get it into your paws as soon as possible. So what are you waiting for? Go like the page and I’ll see you all next time as we start to dive into the characters that make up the Longtails!

Congrats! This is so exciting!
This sounds really interesting! I’m getting Secret of NIMH/Redwall vibes from this, looking forward to reading this!
Thanks! Yes, I would be lying if I said that the many great mouse stories out there didn’t all contribute to the inspiration of this book in some way or another! Can’t wait to share more!
It’s bloggers like you that give me inspiration that it is possible to write and publish a book. I have a few novel ideas that I’m working on in getting out, so when I see people like you can do it and be successful at it, it gives me inspiration.
Yay! I’m glad to hear! It’s a ton of work but very much worth it!
