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!

 

Small Business Saturday November 29, 2014

I hope that all of you had wonderful Thanksgivings and safe Black Fridays! I didn’t think I was participating in the Black Friday madness, but my book is! The Tethering is on sale for 40% off through Monday on the Silence in the Library website with the coupon code BLACKFRI2014.

For those of you are aren’t familiar with The Tethering, here is my handy dandy blurb:

All sixteen-year-old Jacob Evans wants is to win the heart of Emilia Gray, but with order in the magical world crumbling, war threatening, and Emilia’s boyfriend living across the hall, he may never have the chance.
Jacob Evans loses everything he has ever known and is tossed into a world of magic. The Dragons, a group of rebel wizards, are threatening to expose the existence of magic to humans. Jacob is determined to find a way to fit into Emilia’s family, but as his powers grow, so does the danger. With the death toll mounting, Jacob is accused of acts of rebel terrorism and must fight to stay in a world he’s only just beginning to discover.
When Emilia’s life is threatened, Jacob must risk everything to save her. Does he have the power to rescue her in time? And what could their survival cost?

And book two will be out in February, so go on over to the Silence in the Library website and order The Tethering so you can be caught up for the next installment.

Having a sale is so exciting! Thank you all for your support!

 

The Tethering is Here! October 20, 2014

The day has arrived! The Tethering is now available on the Barnes and Noble website, Amazon, and Smashwords! Strangers can buy my book! After years of writing, revisions, and edits, Jacob Evans has been sent out into the world! It feels kind of like sending my characters to kindergarten. Shoving them out into the cold, cruel internet ether and hoping that I have prepared them well enough to survive on their own.

The paperback will be coming out before Christmas, but for today The Tethering can be placed on e-devices all over the world. My story will be in places I’ve never even heard of being read by people I’ve never met. It’s nerve wracking, thrilling, and completely incomprehensible.

Please Tweet, Facebook, and share The Tethering! Help the book to travel like digital fire!

And thank you all from the bottom of my heart for coming with me on this crazy ride!
