Desert Nights is an episodic series* of novellas co-authored with the wonderful Elm Vince. This series follows Zadie, headstrong Princess of Khiridesh, as she finds herself reluctantly betrothed to a powerful sultan, beholden to a smart-mouthed djinni, and determined to prove her worth to her kingdom…

Set in a fantasy world loosely inspired by the mythology of Aladdin and Arabian Nights, you’ll find sultans, djinnis and thieves exploring desert storms, marble palaces, and caves of wonders.

Imagine that Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses, Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes, and Rae Carson’s Girl of Fire of Thorns were all bundled up into a series of episodes you could tear through in an evening, and that’s what you’ll get in Desert Nights.

*Huh? What is episodic fiction?

Episodic fiction is to novels what TV shows are to films: shorter, fast-paced reads you can tear through in the space of an evening, a train ride, or your commute.

The books in this series are novella length, and although shorter than your typical fantasy novel, each book contains a complete story (without a cliffhanger ending – we promise!) which feeds into a bingeable, bigger-picture story that runs throughout the entire series of 12 books.

With a new “episode” releasing every 18 days, we think this series is perfect for Kindle Unlimited (KU) readers. Plus it seemed an appropriate form for a series inspired by 1,001 nights.
