Since Lichgates has now been produced as an audiobook, I’ve had a lot of people ask me how audiobooks work. I’m not sure if you’re new to audiobooks, too. (I sure was before this experience.) Lichgates is available on Audible, an Amazon company. If you’ve never used Audible before, there are just a few easy steps to getting your audiobook up and running. I thought I’d give you a peek behind the curtain because I LOVE how this service works. How does Audible work? There are two ways to get started on Audible. The first way is to just buy … Read More

Over the last few months, I’ve experienced one of the coolest things an author can experience and I can’t wait to share it with you. Lichgates (Grimoire Saga #1) has been made into a phenomenal audiobook with the help of a talented audiobook producer. (Who happens to share a name with the main character, Kara!) Yes. You read that right. In the search for the perfect voice to lend a voice to my main character, Kara Magari and the other characters in the Grimoire Saga, I found a wonderful voice artist who happened to have the same first name. Fun, … Read More

New Release | The Misanthrope: Stone’s Story is now available!

S. M. BoyceBoyce's WorkLeave a Comment

After I finished the Grimoire Saga, I wasn’t quite ready to leave Ourea behind yet. Readers clamored for more, so I began writing a spin-off series called The Ourean Chronicles. For readers of the Grimoire Saga, it’s another chance to get to know three of the characters. The Misanthrope: Stone’s Story (Ourean Chronicles #1) is a twisted tale about Stone, the isen that trained Kara. Writing about Stone, a sociopath, turned out to be a challenge for me. But I went for it, and I hope you enjoy a deeper look at this complex character. Book Description Before Stone trained Kara Magari or … Read More
