Today I am so pleased to welcome K.D. Edwards to Joyfully Jay. K.D. has come to talk to us about his upcoming release, The Eidolon. Please join me in giving a big welcome!


THE HOURGLASS THRONE was released in May 2022 from Pyr Books – the third in my queer urban fantasy series, The Tarot Sequence. In November 2022, Rainbow Crate will release an exclusive, limited-run hardcover edition of THE EIDOLON, a tie-in adventure starring Max, Quinn, and Anna from THE HOURGLASS THRONE that’s never been seen before. Only 1,000 units will be printed and this edition will include hand-signed bookplates, along with cover art by Oblivionsdream and special, exclusive interior art. THE EIDOLON will also be available in early 2023 in E-Book and Audible formats.

This novella represents the start of an entirely new line of content. There will be more opportunities to include extraneous material such as a city-wide map, glossary, and “cast of characters” index — not to mention expedited publication dates. Rainbow Crate has been a dream to work with, too. They’re committed to producing a high-quality hardcover edition, including features like gold foil lettering, unique jacket designs, and reader artwork on the inside front and back covers. And on top of all of this? I’ll get to tell a story that needed to be cut from THE HOURGLASS THRONE due to space concerns. While Rune was busy saving the city, the teens had an adventure of their own in a subterranean “ghost trap” mansion the size of a small town. If all goes well, this will lead to more stories from their perspectives, including my long-planned MAGNUS ACADEMY novels.

The pre-order link can be found at Pre-order links for the E-Book and Audible versions will be available closer to the release date.


In the epic conclusion to K.D. Edwards’ first blockbuster trilogy in The Tarot Sequence series, readers followed Rune on a race against time as an age-old threat rose to threaten the city of New Atlantis. Now, for the first time, we present to you what really happened to Max, Quinn, and Anna in the Hourglass Throne’s base of operation, a sprawling underground ghost trap known as The Eidolon.

THE EIDOLON is the first in a brand-new collection of stories called The Tarot Accounts. Set in the same universe as The Tarot Sequence, these new stories will be told through the various points-of-view of Rune’s found family. In partnership with Rainbow Crate, the world’s largest queer subscription box service, THE EIDOLON will be available in print exclusively here, in a limited-edition hardcover containing unique artwork, a series glossary, a map of New Atlantis, and so much more! The first edition is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Note: This book is not part of Rainbow Crate’s normal monthly subscription and must be purchased separately.

THE EIDOLON Exclusive Hardcover Edition is available for $24.99 + shipping and is expected to ship around November 2022.

If you are new to my work, my debut novel, THE LAST SUN, was published in June 2018, and it was followed by THE HANGED MAN in December 2019.
