Until the end of today, Serpent Heart is free at Amazon. It has been in the top 100 Free Kindle Short Reads for Science Fiction and Fantasy for the past few days, and that’s a happy-making thing. So if you’re interested in picking it up, you have a very few more hours! More books on sale and for free can be found at The Dealer’s Room.
Until the end of December, Sand of Bone is available for review through NetGalley. Three days and a few hours are left for you to make your request. It has already picked up two professional reviews (and will be included in the Indie Fantasy Bundle), so now is the time!
Outside of that, I’m grabbing moments to write between happily-undertaken familial activities since my parents and my nephews are in town for a few days. Productivity has been low since the day after Christmas, but family happiness has been high, and THAT’s the reason for the season.
Since I’m behind on just about everything, I did what any good independent author would do: spent hours creating a new ebook cover!
With holiday sales coming up, followed by StoryBundle (more on that soonly!), followed by the anticipated release of Breath of Stone, I wanted Serpent Heart to share some of the same visual elements as the rest.
In coordination with Sand of Bone’s appearance at NetGalley, I’m offering review copies of Serpent Heart as well. Comment here or drop me a quick line via my contact page if you’d like to receive one!
Woohoo! Serpent Heart is now available at these booksellers:
As soon as Kobo
and Nook go goes live, I’ll provide those links as well.
Publishing this one came with the extra thrill of discovery, since I spent years believing it lost forever in a computer crash. Not only did I enjoy getting to know the characters again, I can clearly see where the story will go in the next installment. Somehow I gained another series.
ETA: Links for Nook.
Less than a month ago, I discovered a novella I’d written — and thought lost forever — many years past.
By this weekend, I’ll start rolling it out through distributors. It’ll show up at Smashwords first (since it takes a couple days for them to get it out to other sites), then Amazon and Nook. As soon as it goes live, I’ll post the opening scene, too.
In the meantime…
Shiny cover! And a blurb!
Azim, son of the deposed warrior-prince of Tirhaj, dreams of winged serpents commanding him to retake the city of his birth. But no one will fight beside an impoverished, untested seventeen-year-old until a wealthy patron sends Azim off with coin, warriors, and the assurance of victory. But Azim didn’t consider possible betrayal and contempt, and his sister Aaminah never expected to fight a battle of her own against the conqueror’s son.
Trapped by failure and weakened by treachery, bowing to defeat is their best hope. Yet still they hear the serpents call — in dreams, in visions, and in reality.
Seek, Hearts of Tirhaj. Seek, remember, return…
