New Monthly Serial! (map + sample chapter)

Those of you who’ve followed me for a while may know that I’ll sometimes release a story to my newsletter in monthly installments. It doesn’t do much for sales or subscriptions, but it does help me feel productive and connected to my readers as I work on longer projects in the background. (The Sword of Kaigen was a newsletter serial before it turned into a SPFBO-winning book). Now, to keep the cre

The Sword of Kaigen is coming to Audio!

Alright, full disclosure: back when it launched, I didn’t think The Sword of Kaigen would get big enough to create a demand for audio. Had I known, I Read more of this blog post »

“A life of dangerous adventures might seem worth it now, when you are young and seemingly invincible, but one day, you will have children, and you will not want that life for them.”

“You learn over time that the world isn’t broken. It’s just… got more pieces to it than you thought. They all fit together, just maybe not the way you pictured when you were young.”

“Wholeness, she had learned, was not the absence of pain but the ability to hold it.”

“But if I learned one thing from Firebird, it’s that a person’s tragedy doesn’t define them or cancel all the good in their life.”

“The funny thing about power is that no matter what you think it is, or how much you think you have, it's the people above and all around you who get the final say.”
Miracle Wang, Planet Adyn

“I’m not sure how old I was when I first tried looking in the mirror and telling myself, with a shiver of pride and a warning prickle of something like fear, ‘I am the most powerful person in the world.’ In a way, it was true. My hands and mind could do things no one else’s could, but I was too young then to understand that some power—the kind that really matters—comes from other people. And what good is being faster, or stronger, or smarter than everyone else when it leaves you all alone?”
Miracle Wang, Planet Adyn

“Power means different things to different people. For poets and politicians, words are power. For some, money is power. For most of Earth’s history, weaponry and resources have constituted power. My grandfather always told me—and I believed for many years—that knowledge was power. But the funny thing about power is that no matter what you think it is, or how much you think you have, it’s the people above and all around you who get the final say.”
Miracle Wang, Planet Adyn

“He's probably out there in the hallway right now, composing bad poetry in his head." Michi cleared her throat, her voice taking on a breathless lilt:

"Pale Fox's Daughter,
Her cherry lips haunt my dreams.
Something, something, breasts...”
Jay Kristoff, Stormdancer

“You learn over time that the world isn’t broken. It’s just… got more pieces to it than you thought. They all fit together, just maybe not the way you pictured when you were young.”
M.L. Wang, The Sword of Kaigen
