Sharing Some Cosplay Photos from Dover Comic Con 2016

Posted in Events, Writing with tags , , , on August 7, 2016 by Loriendil

Sharing a Facebook Photo Album seems to be a “no-go” so here’s a workaround:

Go to my Author Page > Photos > Photo Album entitled “Dover Comic Con 2016.”

(Not only did I have a great day geeking out with My People, but I had fans come over to see if sequels to the first books in both my series were out yet! I was able to tell them yes on both counts – DW: Stacking the Deck very soon – before summer is over, and the sequel to Sword’s Edge, Children of the Enaisi should be ready for pre-order before Christmas!)

And a little teasing peek of the cover art by C.K. Volnek.

DW: Stacking the Deck Is Formatted for E-book!

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on August 5, 2016 by Loriendil

Yes, you read correctly. Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck has been formatted for e-book.

I’m waiting for feedback from two readers and I have a few other behind-the-scenes details to take care of, plus my long-suffering artist C.K. Volnek is feverishly trying to get what I want for the cover. Pray for her!

The print as well as the e-book should be available for pre-order Incredisoon.

Girls at Comic-Con Dressed as Rey – but Tam Is Another Strong Role Model

Posted in Gifts of the Elders, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on July 25, 2016 by Loriendil

Little Girls Went To Comic-Con Dressed As Rey And That’s So Important

This thrills me. To have such a strong role model for girls – this is wonderful. Rey is no damsel in distress (those really irritate me!).

Now I’m going to do something I have a hard time doing, and that’s self-promotion. I’m going to tell you that if you want to read about a strong female role model, you should get my book Sword’s Edge.

I’m going to quote from part of a new review on the book rather than try to explain Tam myself (because I’m lazy that way, and it’s nice to be able to share what others have to say about this novel):

“The main character (Tam) is an engaging, tough, complicated young orphan, with mad fighting skills. Part innocent, part smarter than a fox, she is caught in a world she was only sort-of prepared for, but with critical portions left out. Abruptly orphaned, and just as abruptly scooped up by her larger family, she has abilities that even she is unaware of, and part of the book is Tam’s discovery of that power.

It also has a neat twist on the classic fairy tale: the 15-year-old orphan girl rescues the handsome young prince, and no romance blooms. Tam, as I said, is a tough little scrapper. Just for the fight scenes alone, this book would get 4 stars. Add to that a rich and complex world, a greater over-arching mystery that leaves you hanging for the next book, a plot that isn’t afraid to up-end conventions of the genre, and smooth, polished prose, and you have this novel.”
(You can read the full review here. And thank you, Moira!)

So there you go – Sword’s Edge. (And hey, book two will be out this fall, so what a better time to read it!)

One Book Finished, Sequel to Sword’s Edge Started

Posted in Deuces Wild, Gifts of the Elders, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2016 by Loriendil

After feeling for so long like I couldn’t write (due to lots of Real Life™ that I won’t go into), I think I’m finally hitting my stride.

DW: Stacking the Deck is finished, and I’m now starting on Children of the Enaisi, the sequel to Sword’s Edge.

I’m anticipating the release, or at least the pre-order of Stacking the Deck by August. My plan for Children of the Enaisi is a fall release. We’ll see how that goes.
