This is the serious ad. The puppets come later.
2019 getting you down? Return to 2007 with Eila and discover the world of the Forgotten—people of myths and fairy tales who survive despite a magical drought.
The sequel to The Grasp of Time includes 10 new coloring pages, more suspense, sensuality, danger, and uncertainty for Eila’s fate.
The proofs arrived for Seal Breaker today, and one of my two beta readers has already cracked the cover to start reading. This snap doesn’t do it justice, but the cover looks shiny and fantastic, and I’m even more impressed with the quality of Athena’s work.
Last night, Ellen the Editor sent me the last revisions for the epilogue, so while the readers do their work, I’ll be doing mine. I should be able to announce a launch date in short order, and might even be able to offer pre-order for the Kindle version!
I’m so grateful to my team, who’s worked hard to make this possible, and to my patrons, who support my ability to hire illustrators and an editor in the first place.
Once the proofs are received, I’ll be ready to announce a launch date, which should be in mid-May! Thanks to changes to the way Amazon handles publishing, I should be able to offer pre-orders the day of the announcement.
This sequel to The Grasp of Time will include 10 coloring pages in the print form, and a total of 12 downloadable illustrations for all readers. We were blessed to work with three talented illustrators: @myrielathena provided the cover art, and SpaceAcne and Tru Scruggs did the line art for the coloring pages.
Forgive me, for I sometimes I neglect posting in this blog as often as I should. I post in Twitter and Patreon, and occasionally my Facebook page, but I am remiss in keeping every outlet as informed as another.
That being said, I have posted another flash fiction piece to my Patreon. “Sacrifice” and over 70 other short stories are available to patrons, starting at $1/month. Patrons can download a .pdf copy, or follow a link to a password-protected online version.
In other news, Seal Breaker, sequel to The Grasp of Time, nears completion, and Robin and I are aiming for a May launch at this point; the beautiful cover illustration by Myriel Athena captures Wells beautifully. I have also been invited to read an excerpt from a short story published in the literary art collection for Seattle Erotic Arts Festival this year, on the evening of Saturday, April 27th, should you be attending.
