The Prince is available for Pre-Order

Dear Everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that my novella, "The Prince," is now available for preorder from and Barnes and It releases January 20th.

You can view the cover here:

Canadian readers can preorder the novella through  Chapters and Kobo readers can purchase it here.

UK readers can purchase it through

"The Prince" will be made available by Editora Arqueiro in Brazil and by Penguin Australia in Australia and New Zealand. You can see the listing on Penguin Australia's website here. (NB: Their release date is incorrect)

I'll add other editions to this post as I receive more information.

You're probably wondering why "The Prince" is being referred to as a Gabriel's Inferno novella.

Have you ever read CS Lewis' The Magician's Nephew? In that novel, Lewis envisions a place known as the wood between the worlds. From this wood, characters can enter other worlds in the universe. And characters from different worlds can gather in the wood and converse or they can fight ...

"The Prince" is the wood between the worlds of The Gabriel Series and my new Florentine series.  Both Gabriel and Julianne appear in "The Prince"and they play an important role.  But the novella also introduces new characters and serves as the prequel to my next novel, The Raven.  Through the novella, I'll be leading readers into the underworld of Florence, which is ruled by the mysterious Prince.  And he doesn't like the Professor ...

On January 20th, you'll discover why.

Stay tuned for teasers, pre-order contests, and more.  Don't forget to find me on Twitter or Facebook for updates and other announcements.

All the best and thanks for reading,

The Prince - Releasing January 2015

(NB. This announcement first appeared on The Rock Stars of Romance site on July 30, 2014
Thank you to the Rock Stars for hosting the announcement)

Dear Everyone,

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know I’ve mentioned several times that in addition to working on the sequel to “The Raven,” I’ve been working on a second writing project.

The nature of that writing project has been a secret until now …

I’m pleased to announce that I’m writing a prequel novella to “The Raven” that will be entitled “The Prince.”  “The Prince” will be released by Intermix in January 2015 as an ebook.

Here’s the description:

The unveiling of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy at the Uffizi Gallery exposes the unsuspecting Professor Gabriel Emerson and his beloved wife, Julianne, to a mysterious and dangerous enemy.

Unbeknownst to the Professor, the illustrations he secretly acquired years ago were stolen a century earlier from the ruler of Florence’s underworld. Now one of the most dangerous beings in Italy is determined to reclaim his prized artwork and exact revenge on the Emersons, but not before he uncovers something disturbing about Julianne …

Set in the city of Florence, “The Prince” is a prequel novella to “The Raven,” which is the first book in the new Florentine Series Trilogy by Sylvain Reynard.

“The Prince” can be read as a standalone but readers of The Gabriel Series may be curious about the connection between The Professor’s world and the dark, secret underworld of “The Prince.”

I view “The Prince” as a bridge between The Gabriel Series and “The Raven.” It’s a chance to see Gabriel and Julianne and also meet new characters from The Florentine Series.

Here's a short teaser:

"Let the Emersons view themselves as modern incarnations of Dante and Beatrice. It mattered not. Mercy was not a part of the Prince’s nature …"

"The Raven" is already available for preorder from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, KOBO, and The Book Depository. "The Prince" will be available for preorder soon.

Thank you for your continued support.

All the best,
