What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

Preorder for The Siren’s Realm has Begun! February 16, 2015

Preorder for The Siren’s Realm has begun! Just like with The Tethering, preorder for this book will be done through Kickstarter. For all the reasons why Kickstarter is an amazingly author and publisher friendly platform, click here.

Aside from getting so nervous that I thought I would have a permanent leg twitch while I watched the clock count down to midnight and waited for the preorder page to go live, it’s been a lovely start to preorder.

I walked along the beach and met a battalion of birds waiting a seagull’s command.

I rode by bike and didn’t fall down.

TheSirenRealm

Jacob loves Emilia Gray, but things aren’t always that simple in the world of Magickind…

The war has begun.

The Dragons are gaining power, and the Gray Clan stands alone. Desperate to find a way to stop the Pendragon, Emilia is forced to seek answers from someone who hasn’t been seen in seventeen years . . . Her mother. Embarking on a magical journey filled with witches, wizards, centaurs and a dangerous and powerful Siren, Jacob and Emilia must take a leap of faith to a land neither could have ever imagined . . . and hope they can then find their way home.

 

So head on over to the Kickstarter page for amazing deals you won’t be able to find anywhere else!

 

The Making of a Kickstarter Video December 8, 2014

What do you get when you ask an actor to put together a Kickstarter video? Showgirls and kicklines, clearly.

I have a short story in an anthology that is going out for preorder via Kickstarter next week. The anthology, Athena’s Daughters 2, is all about female voices in Science Fiction and Fantasy. Naturally, my story is about a girl who likes pink and fairies, but hey, the sparkly voice is still legitimate in Fiction.

My publisher asked me to make the Kickstarter video, and I was pleased to oblige. The video is a very important part of any Kickstarter campaign. It introduces the audience to your project and hopefully convinces them that they want to become backers.

With a budget of peanut butter cookies and warm hugs we had five show girls, five dancers, seven singers, and some unsuspecting house guests in the video that was filmed in two different states. (more…)
