The Next Book in the Harley Firebird Series is now available on Stories Rule Press

I had an American reader point out to me that my timing is a bit off.  Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, so the chance that anyone there is interested in a new release is slim to nothing.  (And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US.)

But in fact, the timing is purely coincidental.  Stories Rule Press spread out their new releases so that they don’t all happen on the same day, and there are regular periods of time between the releases. 

My release date just happened to fall on today’s date.  And because Stories Rule Press is in Canada, I don’t think anyone there remembered about the third Thursday of November.  Just as I’m sure that everyone in the US generally forgets that the second Monday in October is Canadian Thanksgiving.  🙂

But I’m sure everyone south of us will catch up with news of the release tomorrow.

So for now;  for everyone else, The Shield of Falconer is out today on Stories Rule Press. 

It remains as a pre-order on all other retailers, until February 22 next year. 


Harley is paid to uphold the law in Falconer, which daily grows more difficult…

Harley, a firebird, and Falconer’s Chief of Police, must dash to the wilds of British Columbia to rescue Chaz from the control of the ruthless Old Ones cult and their powerful leader who holds him.  Harley wants to save Chaz for Noel, his now-dead big sister, who was good, kind and the perfect Falconer, even if she was hiding a few secrets.

Harley is forced to bring along unintended companions, to get them out of Falconer and danger. She learns that it wasn’t just Noel who has secrets. How can Harley uphold the law in a town that doesn’t cherish the law as she does?

And despite expert advice about the power of cults, the Falconers are not prepared for what they find deep in the fire-ravaged forests of B.C. …

The Shield of Falconer is part of the Harley Firebird contemporary fantasy series, which is set in the same fantasy world as Taylen Carver’s Magorian & Jones series.

Praise for Taylen Carver’s fantasy:

Plenty of exciting twists and turns.

Feel the tingling of danger, the aha’s of escaping death, and the excitement of magic

I loved this and will continue on with the series.

A very satisfying first book for a new series

blends the paranormal and the thriller/suspense you expect in a who done it crime story

Love the heroine

The story is filled with many interesting characters, and I’m sure throughout the series we will learn more about them and their new Sheriff and I can’t wait to read all about them.

The author packs this short story with plenty of action and suspense.

Do yourself a big favor and be sure to read the entire series.

The only drawback – I want to read more of this fantastical world-building, and I want to read it now.

Okay, the author really got me on this one… this one surprised the heck out of me

this world and the characters in it are fascinating and I want more, more, more.

I love all the surprises Falconer and it’s residents give us, good or bad

this one was much longer, allowing me to sink deeper into the story and dream longer

I will eagerly buy anything that this author produces as I like his writing style

I absolutely love the world Taylen Carver created- so unique!
