Before the Negotiator, there were the long-held covenants of the Old Races: Do not mate with humans. Never tell them of our existence. And never kill one of our own. For time immemorial, these laws were adhered to…

…except when they were not. Delve into the secret history of the Old Races and discover the truth behind Saint George and the dragons, the origins of the mysterious selkie race, and the djinn betrayals that shape the world of the Negotiator Trilogy.

These stories and more are revealed in this collection of five Old Races short stories, coming June 1 to an e-store near you!

(This collection contains 5 of the 6 Old Races Short Story Project stories, so if you were a patron of that crowdfunded project, you don’t need to buy this one. I mean, IF YOU WANT TO it’s fine with me, y’know? But there’s no new content. Except the cover. :))

Cover art by Tara O’Shea. My head is just going to explode of excitement when I get to see ALL THREE short story collection covers together. :)

That cover is absolutely mesmerizing. Who is the character?

Malik's sister, Tahira, who is a character I tried *desperately* to work into the 3rd book of the Negotiator trilogy, and just. could. not. do it.

Dayum. If that picture does her justice, then I don't blame you; she looks intense!

I actually think it *does* do her justice. She's supposed to be unusually lovely, and she's...very bold, and more than a little tragic.
