Shaman Rises cover
Walker Papers


Know what today is?

Today is the day SHAMAN RISES, last book of the Walker Papers, hits the shelves! Go forth! Buy! Enjoy! Weep!

Um. Well. Um. O.O

Seriously, I’m all big-eyed about this, because it’s the end of an era. I wrote URBAN SHAMAN in the year 2000, although it took me a while to do anything about it, but it means I’ve been working on this series for well over a decade, and to have the last book coming out…wow.

I hope you all like it. :)

    Pretty sure I’m gonna cry regardless of how the books ends. Just the thought of no more Joanne books makes me a weepy. However, all that aside…Congratulations! It’s been such a fantastic series. You wrote the one opening line in a book that still sticks with me even though it’s been 4 years since I read it.

    “Someone had been chewing on the body.”

    I still giggle (a little maniacally) over that. Thanks for an amazing journey! :)

    Congrats! Though I expect I will be rather emotional during this one as well. What an amazing journey you have taken us on. I am looking forward to all the journeys you WILL take us on next. Thanks so much for all your hard work. Storytellers are a gift and I am grateful for them all.

  • Jill C

    Ordered! Thank you so much for a wonderful adventure. You and Jo are one of the reasons I started writing again a few years ago. I can’t wait to see where your imagination takes you next.

    Got my copy as soon as I got home from work today!! I’m starting it now.
    This is one of my all time favorite series. — thank you for sharing Jo’s world with us!

  • Lola Stockmaster

    I got my book today and I’m looking forward to reading it. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

  • Tina

    I wrote in my Goodreads review today that I can’t believe I’m ending a 9 year journey today Catie. It has been such a joy and pleasure to have these characters in my life and I’m so going to miss them. I cried and laughed and cheered while reading today. Thank you for the incredible stories.

    I have gotten to listen to this whole series, and have been blown away. I am visually disabled since an accident, and since I cannot read braille Audiobooks are the only way I can read anymore. I am so horribly upset that you would withhold the final book from those of us who are incapable of reading any other way.
