Later this month (6/22?), I’ll be putting out one of my short stories in ebook format. The Bear Girl originally appeared in WolfSongs, Volume 1, an anthology choice which makes sense only to when one had read the story!
The cover is one I created myself, depicting the first scene in the story, and I hope it looks enticing enough to draw readers in!
GUD Magazine (in their review of the anthology) called this story a ‘gentle coming-of-age story’, which I thought was particularly apt description.
In addition, I wanted to let people know that I’m on track for a August release of Overseer, the final book in the Horn trilogy, after which I’ll tackle the first sequel to Dreaming Death.
I still don’t have a name for that book, but I’ve got about 70K of it written now, and I’m excited to get it out there!
For those who are unsure how the two series relate to each other, it’s easiest to see it as a dichotomy. Most of the people inhabiting the world of the Dreaming Death (and Shared Dreams) stories are living in a world with magic and mystery. The Horn is populated by people–the Oathbreakers–who know the true origins of their peoples, what the Fortresses actually are, and what capabilities they have. In essence, they live in a world that’s closer to science fiction….
The two halves sometimes cross, but social pressures generally keep the knowledge of the Oathbreakers under wraps.
Whether or not that will change may come into play when the king has to choose his heir, the person who will one day decide how much of the Oathbreakers’ science has to be used to keep Larossa safe from the Cince…but those stories are fairly far down the line at this point (2019ish!)
