This fifth offering in Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga is now available (finally) at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and yes, KoboBooks. For more information please visit the “Tales” page at

For non-USA readers, Amazon and KoboBooks offer access and purchase from outside of the USA. For Amazon, you will need to seek the proper site by domain extension (.es, .uk, etc.); see the main site for assistance if you cannot find your region’s domain site. KoboBooks has affiliates in about 150 countries, though their main site (from what we understand) sells directly (with immediate access) to many countries around the world.

It may take a little more time for our privately published titles to filter through these large vendor sites to any of their non-USA subsites, but they will. We thank you for your patience with all of the technical difficulties that delayed this release.

HW1NOTE: Along with this release, Homeward, I: The Game Piece by Barb has also (finally) become available at

You can find the direct link for it through the “Tales” page at

While you’re at our site, you can also have a look at the previous “Tales” releases in the “Homeward” and “Bones of the Earth” sequences.
