A centuries-long stalemate endures over possession of a sentient world. In one corner stands a cabal of shamans; in the other, a colony of aliens whose bio-engineering experiment has gone amok…
And in the middle, a youth who has been genetically altered to ‘Shape’ the elemental powers.
The stalemate is about to break…

The Mocker rides at dusk…
When Jana inherits her uncle’s horse farm in Scotland, it seems a dream come true. Caro, her grandmother, believes in dreams, and moves with Jana to the borderlands. Both have reasons to uproot their lives on the reservation. Both are searching for answers within the cultural tangles of their past.
That past will catch them up in ways they never would have guessed, as ancient & fearsome legends stalk their new home.
Coming in 2024
The stalemate has broken. Invasion has begun.
Sacred ways and near-extinct blood-powers are proving scant help against the incursions of the alien Chepiś. Arrows, stolen weaponry, and clandestine retaliation are what keeps duskLands territories free.
Or so Anahli believes, until she saves a midLands refugee who has stolen a long-lost—and controversial—artefact from beneath her chieftain’s notice. Its very presence could set tribe against tribe—a ancillary battle Anahli’s People can ill afford to fight.
Unless she can find the outcast whose Changed blood can, perhaps, untangle the artefact’s long-forgotten secrets…
Talulah J. Sullivan
has been a pro equestrian, a dancer, an actor, an activist, and a teacher who has learned as much from her two- and four-legged students as she’s ever shared with them… yet she’s never managed to not be a storyteller. Ever.
Blood Indigo is the first (but not the last!) of her novels seeking to weave a ‘tale basket’ in the proud example of her Choctaw and Chickasaw grandmothers. She is a member of the Historical Novel Society, the Author’s Guild, & the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association. As J Tullos Hennig, she was awarded the Speculative Literature Foundation’s juried Older Writers Grant in 2018, and wrote the award-winning historical fantasy series The Books of the Wode, in which Robin Hood is reimagined as a queer, chaotic-neutral druid.
No matter the name, her works reflect literary worlds old and new, cultures both fantastic and familiar, and promise readers an immersive, subversive experience.
