December Charity Blitz
December 2, 2017
For the month of December, I will be donating 100% of my royalties to the Against Malaria Foundation!
As anyone who has read the series is probably aware, the world-building of Theonite
is heavily based on West African culture
(specifically that of the Mande of Mali, Guinea, Senegal, Gambia, Sierra Leone and several neighboring countries). From the magic system,
to the languages, to the themes of colonialism, my work owes a lot to West African history and culture. This month, I want to give
something back, in the form of donations to a charity that helps save lives throughout Africa (including some of the aforementioned
My goal is to reach $100 dollars in donations for the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF)
, a charity that works to distribute
insecticide-treated mosquito nets in areas affected by malaria. Since 2011, it has been recommended as a top charity by GiveWell,
a non-profit organization dedicated to researching the most cost-effective interventions to save lives in the developing world.
Reasons GiveWell cites to support AMF include that it is:
Effective (nets placed in homes significantly lower the risk of malaria)
Cost-effective (nets are low in cost relative to their impact)
Transparent (all their financial information is available on their website)
For more information, see Givewell’s write-up on AMF
or visit the
For reasons having to do with Amazon content rules and printing costs, my royalties aren’t super consistent between all my books.
So, here’s the breakdown of how much will be donated for each purchase:
Book I: Planet Adyn ebook
($0.99) = $0.35 donation
Book II: Orbit ebook
($2.99) = $2.00 donation
Book I: Planet Adyn paperback
($11.20) = $2.30 donation
Book II: Orbit paperback
($18.75) = $3.76 donation
So, if you have yet to purchase any of these books or know someone who might like them as a holiday gift,
now is the time to get them! If not, I strongly encourage you to make a direct donation here
Thank you and happy December!

Great news! After my protracted struggle with the printing service, paperback versions of Theonite Book II: Orbit are finally available for purchase on Amazon! At long last, I have a link for you!

Theonite: Orbit on Amazon
After barely escaping Earth with their lives, Joan and Daniel scramble to piece together the mystery of Killer 31 while dodging police, security guards, annoying family members, and dark hooded figures.
Daniel always intended to take on the Firebird mantle and fight his father’s enemies, but he didn’t expect to have to do it at the age of thirteen under a hail of spears and bullets.
Joan was hoping to find a world where she wouldn’t be isolated because of her powers, but adjusting to existence on the bottom of Duna’s racial hierarchy turns out to be more painful than any of the alienation she experienced on Earth.
Brand New Standalone Theonite Novella Coming Soon!

High in the mists of a coastal mountainside, live the most powerful fighters in the world, warriors capable of raising the sea and wielding blades of ice. For hundreds of years, the fighters of the Kusanagi Peninsula have held the Empire’s enemies at bay, earning their snowy spit of land the name ‘The Sword of Kaigen.' But when the winds of war return, stronger than ever, will the men of Kusanagi be enough to hold them back? And if they are Kaigen’s sword, whose fingers hold the handle?
