A friend of mine just released book two in his series, The Unseen Chronicles. It’s another delightful fantasy adventure, aimed at younger readers than Zare, but the quality of story the whole family will enjoy.
Zare is 17 in her current story, and Essie’s more like 13 in hers, but I imagine they’d get along handsomely.
Alright, here are the details:
Nightrage Rising will release this next Saturday, on December 9th.
During this Christmas season the Amazon Kindle e-book will be available for .99 and will be free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback should be available that same day. Here’s the direct link: http://amzn.to/2AsFwIa
Nightrage Rising is a street-level fantasy-adventure novel with a healthy splash of Nancy Drewish mystery—mixed with a dollop of wit and snark. It is a fast paced, first-person, present-tense story of a girl discovering self-worth, courage and friendship in the face of an unstable kingdom, magical inequality, and a dangerous, seductive cult. If you grab a copy off the shelf and flip to the back cover, here’s what you’ll find:
“Essie Brightsday is blind. But that hasn’t kept her from curses, dragons, or rock basilisks in the past. Now her family lives in the bustling capital of Plen, a far cry from their small farm tucked against the Valley of Fire. Little does she know that a secretive cult is growing in the city, guaranteeing this adventure will be just as eventful as the last…”
While Nightrage Rising
is the sequel to A Hero’s Curse
, it was written to stand on its own. If you missed the first book, don’t worry, you can still jump in, right now. (You can find out more about a A Hero’s Curse

“Sometimes if you want to change a man’s mind, you have to change the mind of the man next to him first.”
This is one of my favorite quotes from The King of Attolia.
Are you excited for the new Attolia book, Thick as Thieves, which comes out later this month?

What starts as a project cleaning acrylic off paint brushes turns into a really nice pattern.
We were pretty close to having a Zare episode today. I wrote for hours yesterday–and still didn’t get one finished. But I got a lot of things worked out. So. That’s good. Bodes well for next week!
In the mean time, I have this:
Yup, I made myself a tee shirt! I kind of love it.

Also, there is more than t-shirts; pillowcases, mugs, bags, notebooks…
You should go check it out.

I always liked what God had to say about horses–holding them up as an object lesson for Job about how awesome and powerful God is.
I have always loved the Irish–there is a solid smattering of the British Isles in my blood, but I married a man whose Irish lineage is much more prominent. St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal for us, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
There is, of course, more to the Irish than shamrocks and Guinness.
There are potatoes, too.
J/K, there are potatoes, but there is so much more than that.
St. Patrick’s story is an amazing one, you should look it up. The short version is that he was kidnapped by Irish marauders as a kid, and enslaved by a warlord on Ireland for years. He eventually escaped and went back to England (Patrick’s English! What!), at which point God told him to go back to Ireland and spread the Gospel.
So, he did.
He had epic showdowns with the king’s druids, and legend holds he drove all the snakes from Ireland–legend takes that literally, but I suppose it might be figurative, too.
Patrick is only one of Ireland’s saints–they all have pretty amazing stories. This little book, Celtic Flames, is a good appetizer to get you into their stories.
In the mean time, I made it easy to find the lucky clover. Had fun sketching a bazillion clover for this one, it’s up on Redbubble if you’re interested!
