I know many readers still prefer printed books. That's understandable for a variety of reasons. However, the cost of printed books is more than ebooks because a manufacturer must be paid to make each copy. For the novels of the Rys Rising series, I use the company Createspace to print and ship the paperbacks. This company is the supplier for the Rys Rising paperback listed at Amazon. 

I obtain my paperback copies at Createspace for my personal stock that I sell at shows and markets. In my experience the company often prints them the same day as my order and ships them. This will vary depending on seasonal demands, like at the holidays.

As I've been learning my way around Createspace, I've discovered that it also ships its print-on-demand products to most countries around the world! I had wrongly assumed that it only serviced the U.S. outside of its relationship with Amazon. Readers can see the shipping rates for their countries at this page

About the novel:

A young warrior ruined and near death is saved by Onja a mysterious rys female. Forsaking all that he was, he will take the name Amar and serve his new magical mistress. A lord among outlaws he will become, feared by kings and called the dro-shalum or curse demon by the common folk. Indulge yourself and read this sumptuous epic told from many angles.

Reviews about the novel from Amazon and Barnes & Noble:

"I was hooked on this wonderfully written book that has magnificent plots and twists of interlocking story lines." ShawneePoling at B&N

"Everything is here. Magic. World building. Multidimensional character. Pathos. Conflict. I have read more than 50 books inthis venue. Rys Rising is the only 5 star rating I have given." Anonymous at B&N

"I particularly appreciated two things- her commitment to describing the world in detail, and the way she helps you feel sympathy for the main characters by placing them in predicaments." Trekelny at Amazon US

"I'm hooked and can't wait to get the rest of the series." SooperCynic at Amazon UK


The noisy mirth drew their leader into the lantern light. Demeda recognized the man who stalked back down the trail as the one who had bound her hands. He had a young face set in hard lines, and the laughter hushed upon his appearance.

He took in the scene quickly and Demeda succeeded in finally righting her clothing. While she was at it, she loosened her gag before someone yanked on one of her straps and she dropped her hands.

The leader confronted the man who had been carrying Demeda. “You can’t carry a girl?” he asked.

The man dropped to one knee. “Forgive me, Amar,” he said.

Demeda became perfectly still as she realized that she was looking upon the dro-shalum. Amar of the Kez had taken her and Ulet. She had naturally imagined him as older. Demeda thought that it was strange that his youth should command such solemn authority over these men. Her brother was young and shown respect and obeyed, but not like this. The men around her feared this Amar not because of his station but because he was the curse demon. Kings withered in his presence, and now he possessed her.

Disgust flitted across Amar’s face. He waved dismissively at the man who knelt before him and approached Demeda. She quailed back a step. He grabbed both straps on her arms and yanked her toward him. She fell against his chest. His net-like armor of small bronze plates poked through her thin clothing. Demeda looked up into his eyes and glimpsed a wild disregard for all of society that opened a gateway to a world unimagined.
