Frogkisser On shelves now!

Poor Princess Anya. Forced to live with her evil stepmother’s new husband, her evil stepstepfather. Plagued with an unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss. And forced to go on the run when her stepstepfather decides to make the kingdom entirely his own.

Aided by a loyal talking dog, a boy thief trapped in the body of a newt, and some extraordinarily mischievous wizards, Anya sets off on a Quest that, if she plays it right, will ultimately free her land-and teach her a thing or two about the use of power, the effectiveness of a well-placed pucker, and the finding of friends in places both high and low.

I'm a fairly consistent writer of short stories, but I still find it kind of amazing when I make a list of forthcoming stories and it adds up to more than I thought I'd written. Coming up later this year and early next:

“The Seventeen Year Itch” in HAUNTED NIGHTS edited by Ellen Datlow & Lisa Morton

“A Long, Cold Trail” in THE BOOK OF SWORDS edited by Gardner Dozois (this is a Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz tale)

“Conversations with an Armory” in INFINITY WARS edited by Jonathan Strahan

“Triangle Solo” in THREE SIDES OF A HEART edited by Natalie C. Parker

“The Staff in the Stone” in THE BOOK OF MAGIC edited by Gardner Dozois

And the next novel, out in October 2017 is HAVE SWORD, WILL TRAVEL, co-written with Sean Williams

Valerie McCoy"Hope Chest" in the Firebirds, anthology book,(from a time long past) is probably one of my all time favorites of Garth's. It's elegant, beautiful, and challenging. I love the use of imagery! Check it out if you haven't yet.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Mel JenkinsI've enjoyed every book of yours I've read, but my favourite is Lirael and I'd love to hear more stories about the adventures her and the Dog had in the Clayr's Glacier one day. I've always been curious to read more about their time there.2 days ago
