Book Deal Announcement!


I have some very exciting things to announce in this post. Buckle up!


I am so excited to announce that I signed on with Uncommon Universes Press again! This time to publish my modern fantasy western duology!

Then Comes A Drifter and it’s sequel have a home!!

AHHH!! I’ve been so excited about this for weeks and am so pumped to finally be able to share it!

It will be under the Steel Rigg imprint (New Adult/Adult), so be ready for a gritty, wild ride!

I’m so so excited to introduce you all to the world of Drifter, and can’t wait for you to meet Laramie and Gered in 2022!


Mad Max: Fury Road meets Into the Badlands with some smatterings of magic thrown in. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
Laramie is a drifter, riding the desert plains, telling herself she’ll know what she’s looking for when she finds it. When she stumbles into the wrong warlord’s territory, it becomes a game of survival. ⁣⁣
Gered knows there’s no way out. Part of the motorcycle gangs, and before that, raiders, he’s always been a tool for those who’ve controlled him. He’s given up hope of a life other than killing, until he and his gang pick up a bright-eyed drifter. ⁣⁣
Gered is done fighting, but Laramie refuses to accept her fate. But among the brutal motorcycle gangs, dust, and tenuous alliances, they just might find what they’ve been searching for.⁣⁣

Pop over to my Instagram and check out the Drifter Highlight on my bio page to see a bunch of character aesthetics and more news!

Now for a mixed bag of news…

I’ve been getting some questions recently from readers who’ve been asking after Book 2 in the Dragon Keep Chronicles (also from Uncommon Universes Press!) since there hasn’t been any update on release date for the Fall.


Due to our good friend Corona and some other unexpected scheduling things, the date had to be pushed back to Jan/Feb 2021 (official date TBD).

While I’m really bummed that y’all who loved Oath of the Outcast have to wait even longer for the continuation of The Baron’s story, I’m also excited because this new timeline ensures that we put out the best possible book.

When I have some more solid news, y’all will hear me pterodactyl shrieking it from the rooftops, never fear.

But, that leads me into the good part of this.


I had art commissioned for my favorite floof of anger management issues, and his brother and AREN’T THEY AMAZING!

I’m planning some epic pre-order goodies for Blood of the Seer and this artwork will definitely be part of it!

Thanks for getting this far and for support as readers you’ve given over the years! It keeps me writing and expoloring new worlds I’m beyond excited to share!

Stay courageous, Friend!

  1. I just finished Oath of the Outcast and LOVED it! I could not stop thinking about it and I even made a Pinterest board for it! I will be on the edge of my seat until Blood of the Seer comes out!!! Thank you for another wonderful story Miss Banschbach. 🙂

    • Thank you so much! It brightened my day to hear how much you enjoyed it! And I’m beyond honored you made a pinterest board for it! Seer is coming soon and there should be some exciting announcements coming soon as well!


  2. Hey! I know this was posted a couple months ago but could you tell me where you got the character art commissioned? They are so good and I am tempted to have my own art commissioned.


Please leave a comment! I try and reply to all of them. Just keep it clean and relevant to the post. Stay shiny!
