It’s finally time to reveal the cover for the fourth novel in the Divine Warriors series! This one took extra time because I wanted to go in a different direction for the design and there were some issues to work out. But I’m pleased with the final result and I hope you will enjoy it, too.
About the new design: I’ve loved the over-the-top steampunk feeling of the series’ covers until now. The setting is still steampunk, but I wanted to expand on the fantasy side. If you’ve read the books, you know that the Divine Warriors have magic which allows them to create any kind of armor and weapons they can imagine. One girl, named Janera, prefers to look like a classical knight. This cover shows off her bold style and hints at the major antagonist for this book: the Cult of Electricity. Read on for more information.
A young priestess to a forbidden goddess. A hard-won treaty to protect her people. But now a new prophecy could destroy their fragile peace.
The teenage prophet Riwenne has performed many miracles to save her city and protect her friends from the oppressive empire. After winning another terrible battle for her new nation’s freedom, she reached out to another fledgling state that had declared their own independence. If they band together, they might be strong enough to stand their ground against the imperial army.
But a cult is rising in popularity that could threaten everything Riwenne is trying to do. The Chief Scientist wants to throw down all the gods and their magic, promising equality with his Electrical Prophecy. Those who follow the new cult won’t cut a deal with any priestess, no matter which god she serves. And they won’t be impressed by any miracle.
Riwenne can’t fight her way out of this. She must find a new way to deal with people who have different beliefs. Even if she can’t convert them to her religion, she has to find the common ground for them to work together.
Or they will all be trapped in an endless war.
Riwenne & the Electrical Prophecy is the fourth book in a steampunk fantasy series for teens. If you like magical girls, lesbian romance, and high-flying adventures, then you’ll love Kristen S. Walker’s series of guns and gears.

Also today, you can catch an interview I did with fellow fantasy author, Jimena I. Novaro, on her blog! She asked a lot of great questions about how my experiences in self-publishing have changed over the last six and a half years. It was great to reflect on my journey.
