Rebranding of Daughter of the Dragon Throne

00cover_final-smI am currently rebranding the Daughter of the Dragon Throne series with new covers and titles to reflect the epic fantasy/sword and sorcery market.  The Dragon Scale Lute has already been redone as Songs of Insurrection, and the next three should follow within the first couple of months of 2017.

If you liked the old covers, I have long-term plans to re-release them as Young Adult, First Person, single POV.  You can see the new Dragon Scale Lute on Wattpad.

The new titles of the Dragon Songs Saga are:

Songs of Insurrection (Dragon Scale Lute)

Orchestra of Treacheries (Dragon Charmer)

Dances of Deception (True Colors of Betrayal)

Symphony of Fates (Mandate of Heaven)

Dragon Charmer Review From G. Jacks Writes

A Four-Star Review from G Jacks Writes:

“I will say this, I commend them for their dedication to the “cause” throughout the book as each of their plans represented the very essence of the waiting game; plotting and planning for years for everything to fall into place. And with every new character, I found myself going, “Okay, so who are you really working for?” or “Alright, who are you meant to stab in the back?””

My Review of Girl With Ghost Eyes

I researched End-of-Qing China in college and later worked in the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco where I had to learn the history of Chinatown. The amount of historical detail that goes into Girl With the Ghost Eyes is beyond admirable, even more so because all of that information doesn’t bog down the fast pace and intrigue. With the feel of 1990’s Hong Kong ghost/zombie movies, the story centers around Daoist Priestess Xian Li-Lin. She’s a compelling characters whose heart leads her into bad decisions– yet ones which ultimately come together in a satisfying ending.

My Review of Moon In The Palace

I studied Empress Wu in college and was always interested in her story. When I read the sample pages on Amazon of Moon In The Palace before release and was instantly enamored with the story. I pre-ordered and anxiously awaited its arrival.

I wasn’t disappointed. The protagonist Mei has an endearing narrative voice– easy to read, and yet deep with insight that shows how she could (SPOILER!) eventually rule China. The setting of a backstabbing harem has been done in Asian media, and the author captures the politicking well. Mei gets swept along, yet has enough agency to ensure a soft landing after disasters that could have led to worse consequence. As such, her character grows. I look forward to seeing how she eventually takes rule in Book 2
