What’s this picture? A Christmas wreath? Not exactly. It is the pub-day present I just got from 47North. A wreath made out of magnolia leaves in honor of The Forsaken Throne coming out. It’s like they actually read my books or something!
Happy NaNoWriMo to all of you this month! My good friend (and fellow Deep Magic board member) Brendon Taylor invited me to his writer’s group this last weekend and it was a lot of fun talking about the craft and meeting with authors in the Pocatello area. Had a great time, plus Brendon made home-made cinnamon rolls. He’s an awesome cook.
Ready for some news?
First, you may soon be suffering with Kingfountain withdrawls. It’s a serious problem. To help remedy it, there is another Kingfountain book coming in January, probably my last. It’s called The Poisoner’s Enemy and it is another prequel. This one tells the origin story of Ankarette Tryneowy. Seriously, you’re going to love it. It ties in some people you know, some you’ve only heard about it, and the villain…ooh, sooo good! This book comes out in January and is available now to pre-order.
I am also excited to announce something in time for your holiday shopping. I’ve been working with Dabel Brother’s publishing since this summer to bring you the Muirwood adult coloring book. I’ve been working with their artists to create this and simply love the work they’ve done. It is now officially open to pre-order and the coloring books will ship in early December so you can get them for family and friends. I can’t wait to get them for my kids as well.
Still not done with the good news though! 47North is also having a sale of the kindle version of the Kingfountain series (books 1-5) in the US, UK, and Australia until the end of November. It’s a great chance to pick up the whole series or tell a friend about it. Find it here.
I also learned today that all the stories in the Kindle Worlds program are now going to be part of Kindle Unlimited. So with a Kindle Unlimited account (if you already have one), you can read them for free. Did you know that it’s legal to write fanfiction based on my Muirwood world? And publish it? And get paid for it? I think it is great and I hope with this development, more writers will take advantage of this program and create stories set in this world. Here are some stories that already exist:
I told you there was a lot of good news. Stay tuned for more when I announce my new series coming in mid-2018!
I can’t thank all of you enough for the support you’ve given me. There are plenty more worlds coming your way. I love writing stories. Hope you continue to enjoy them!
