I am excited to announce that my brand-new Original English Light Novel Series, From Ashe, will be launching on March 1, 2021!


From Ashe follows a novice writer named Ashe Sawyer who dreams of being able to, one day, live off of her writing. She takes this journey alongside her childhood friend and roommate Renji Keita. Renji is, by all means, a freeloader; however, Ashe doesn’t have the heart to throw him out due to their past together.

Ashe’s path to becoming a writer isn’t paved with gold. Frustrations with Renji, harsh criticisms over her writing, and high levels of stress and misery from her job are just some of the roadblocks that stand between Ashe and a writing career. Her journey along this turbulent path begins here.

Pricing Information

When From Ashe launches, it will be available in paperback and Kindle formats. Pre-orders for the Kindle version will open up closer to the launch date. The prices for each version are as follows:

Paperback – $12.99
Kindle – $4.99

Autographed Pre-Orders

Pre-orders for autographed physical copies are open starting today. Pre-orders will run until Friday, February 12, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST. After that, pre-orders will no longer be accepted.

The price for an autographed copy will be $25.00 USD and is only open to residents of the United States.

To order, you can either use the contact form on the website or email me directly at joshpiedra@gmail.com. If you email me directly, please state “From Ashe Pre-Order” in the subject line and include an email I can send a PayPal invoice to along with your preferred shipping address.

Once your copy is shipped, you will receive a tracking number via email.


Amazon has increased the wait time of author copies. It used to be 1-2 weeks. Now it is 3-4 weeks before an author will receive their books. This means that an autographed copy may not arrive on time to meet the March 1 release date!

All I can do is place the order ahead of time. I cannot control Amazon’s speed of printing and shipping a copy of the book to me. Even if it arrives after the public release date, your order WILL be fulfilled.

Also, an order for a book will not be placed for you if you were invoiced for a copy and have not paid. If a pre-order is placed on the last day, I will allow a 24-hour grace period to pay for the copy of the book. If no payment is received by February 13, your pre-order will be canceled.

PDF Review Copies

PDF Review Copies of From Ashe Vol. 1 are available now to members of the media! If you have a website, blog, YouTube channel, etc and wish to review From Ashe Vol. 1, feel free to contact me via the contact form on the site or directly by email via joshpiedra@gmail.com.

If you’re contacting me by email, please use “Review Request – From Ashe” in the subject line so I can differentiate it from Pre-Orders.

In the email, please include your website/channel/blog/etc. as well as a time frame as to when you will expect to have the review completed.

If you fail to provide a review, it will disqualify you from receiving future review copies of my work. That is a decision that will not be reversed so please be respectful if you plan on reaching out.

My only other rule is to be honest with your review. I’m a big boy. I can handle constructive criticism. I’m not looking for 5-star reviews for the sake of trying to help me market my book. I’m looking for honest feedback no matter how positive or negative it may be. Even if you love the book and found some parts to nitpick at, I’d love to know. Everything positive or negative only helps!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
