Hello, Readers!

Where have I been?

I didn’t blog last week because I was distracted by the launch of my new book, the fifth and final book in the Lens series, The Guardian. Then, my site went down for several days, making it impossible for me to blog and even tell you about it! In any case, the book is out now, and you can pick up your copy here! 

What’s next?

It feels great finishing up this series, and I’m already brainstorming for the next, Light Chaser. It will be a Young Adult Epic Fantasy about a young woman fighting to defend the magic in her land, and to defend her own life from those who wish to take her natural powers away. It’s already super fun to be brainstorming and outlining this series (aiming for 5 books). Though it is strange to not be writing actual words right now. I take it as a good sign that I’m so eager to get back into this project. You can expect the first book, Wild Lands, in October!

Get those short stories while you wait!

In addition to finally starting the Light Chaser series, I’ve already completed twelve short stories in the same universe. You can sign up to receive all 12 stories free at www.jbcantwell.com. They will also be available for sale on my …


Coming August 8! I’ve been working away at my up and coming website where you’ll be able to purchase both ebooks and paperbacks directly from me (Aster Wood, 6th Grade Supernatural, and soon, Light Chaser!). It’s an exciting project, and it has been fun to set up my shipping center in the garage and build the site, as well as monitoring a revamp of my existing website. These series will also be available on other retailers like Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, and Google Play. I’ll be sending out a reminder when the day finally arrives!

I hope this post finds you well. Stay safe out there. 

Happy Reading!
