In what order should I read your books?

It depends on your tastes. Panamindorah is my main story universe. If you want to read those books strictly in order, start with The Prophet of Panamindorah (3 books), then the first short story collection (Crossroads), then The Guild of the Cowry Catchers (5 books), then the 2nd short story collection (Secret Things). Then the Refugees series, starting with The Scarlet Albatross. However, you could begin with the first book in any of these three series. They are all intended as entry points into the world. If you prefer young adult material (no on-screen sex), start with Prophet. If you prefer more adult fiction (occasional sex), start with The Guild of the Cowry Catchers or The Scarlet Albatross.

And, hey, I have non-Panamindorah books! Hunters Unlucky is a stand-alone animal epic. Readers have described it as "Watership Down meets Game of Thrones." If Hunters sounds interesting to you, start there.

If you've got a small child to entertain, or if you just like my short stories, try the Eve and Malachi Books. They can be read out of order, but they'll flow a little better if you start with Book 1.

Where can I get your books and in what formats?

My ebooks are available from Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Kobo, Smashwords, and in the digital store on this website.

People sometimes ask where I prefer that you buy them. My answer is: use your favorite platform! I make a little more money if you buy them here, but honestly, all the major retails pay independent publishers pretty well. If you prefer one of these platforms, buy them there.

My paper books are available from Amazon and direct from CreateSpace. If you purchased one of my paper books from Amazon, you can usually get the matching Kindle book for free or cheap. Check the Amazon listing.

My audio books are available from Audible.com and iTunes. Some titles are also available as podcasts from Podiobooks.com.

If my books are not available in the format you desire, email me, and perhaps we can work something out. abigail dot hilton at gmail dot com

  An honorable prince. A jaded assassin. Can they work together to catch a pirate? Gerard lost his birthright in his small island kingdom when he married the court minstrel. He fled to the only place that offered protection from his father and his vengeful local deity--the service of the High Priestess. Unfortunately, his superior officer, Silveo, takes an instant disliking to Gerard. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a minority species, and rumors claim that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. In spite of their differences, the Priestess insists that Gerard and Silveo cooperate to destroy the charismatic pirate, Gwain, and his mysterious organization, the Guild of the Cowry Catchers. Gwain has been killing off the Temple Police for years, and he seems likely to make a swift end of Gerard...if Silveo doesn't do it first.

A delicate ship. A fractured crew. A mysterious weapon. Anaroo is an airship slave, destined to spend her days running on a treadmill, winding the great springs of the Scarlet Albatross.

Anaroo and the slaves form an uneasy truce with the strange collection of ship's officers and passengers, none of who are what they seem.

  In January of 2007, Abigail Hilton emailed an artist she had never met to commission a few illustrations for a story she hadn't finished. The artist was Sarah (Rah) Cloutier. The story was The Guild of the Cowry Catchers. Over the next seven years, Cowry Catchers grew to a five-book series and became a fullcast audio production, involving forty voice actors and music from many musicians. The story was released first as a podcast, then as an audio book. It was also beautifully illustrated. Some of the illustrations were made available online and in the ebooks, though never in high resolution. Other images are released for the first time here. A few pieces were created specifically for this book, such as a full character lineup and a lavish set of paper dolls. Enjoy!
