Robin and Raven do not own any of these songs or their corresponding videos and encourage you to seek out and purchase the albums of the artists here you enjoy, just as you have supported their work.
Once the proofs are received, I’ll be ready to announce a launch date, which should be in mid-May! Thanks to changes to the way Amazon handles publishing, I should be able to offer pre-orders the day of the announcement.
This sequel to The Grasp of Time will include 10 coloring pages in the print form, and a total of 12 downloadable illustrations for all readers. We were blessed to work with three talented illustrators: @myrielathena provided the cover art, and SpaceAcne and Tru Scruggs did the line art for the coloring pages.
It’s finally here! The Grasp of Time: Puppet Edition is now available for your eyeballs to consume.
Seal Breaker, the sequel to TGOT, is on its way. There have been a few delays, but we’re still pushing forward, and aiming to launch before the end of May.
Seal Breaker, the sequel to The Grasp of Time, is now in the hands of editor Ellen Klowden. If all goes according to schedule, we’re aiming for a January publication.
Funds are tight, however, and we are seeking a new illustrator (or more than one) for the coloring pages; Ms. Fuller is currently attending university and is unable to accept commissions for the foreseeable future. We’re looking forward to her availability for future books when her schedule permits.
“Open the book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality
of the whole will be revealed to you.”

Whether you choose the Page 69 test, or the Page 99 test suggested by Ford above, you’re in luck! Not only is Chapter Zero available free, but here you’ll also be able to read Page 69 and Page 99 of The Grasp of Time.
If you like it, you can find it available for print, Kindle, and Nook.
Not sure if The Grasp of Time is the right book? You’re invited to read the first chapter.
As some readers may already know, Robin and I are queer. Both of us are pansexual, and I identify as genderfluid. Thus, our stories are filled with queer characters.
In The Grasp of Time, among our named characters, there are:
- two pansexuals
- four bisexuals
- one omnisexual
- two demisexuals
- one lesbian
- one gay man
- and a celibate, aromantic psychopath no one should try to get close to
Many of our characters are gender non-conforming, yet still cisgender, however one character is genderfluid, another is non-binary. That’s six heterosexuals to twelve queer people. Because if we can’t put representation into our own stories, what’s the point?
In future books, there will be asexual characters, openly transgender characters, and people who don’t fit into neat categories in the least (Khraesch certainly doesn’t). As with everything, I have a spreadsheet for this.
