Anthology Update

Happy Monday, everyone. This is just a quick update for those of you who’ve been accepted in the anthology to let you know the contracts have not yet been sent. (please don’t hit me with a stick!) I am getting everything finalized and hope to have them sent out to all of you by the end of this week. IF that doesn’t happen because life decides to send a squadron of angry dragons my way, I will have them emailed to you by the end of the month. Thanks for your patience and again, a big congratulations!

Reclamation

We’re excited to announce that Reclamation, the next short story in The Legacy of Ilvania, is now available on Kindle for just $0.99!

“Everything comes at a price – even good deeds.”


A month after Jae proved everything the Mé’Draak believed about their magic to be wrong, he’s finally beginning to settle into his demanding new role as Healer. But he quickly discovers that everything comes at a price – even good deeds. Will he have the strength to protect a little girl crucial to the future of the world, or will Ilvania fall into shadow?

Release Date

3D

We have some good and bad news to share with everyone. The good news is that the release date for Awakening by Andi O’Connor is tentatively set. The bad news is that due to some unforeseen issues, we’ve had to push back the release to early 2015. But never mind all that! Here is it! Mark your calendars! The release date for Awakening is tentatively set for: February 5, 2015


Haven’t read the first book in the series? Pick up a copy of The Lost Heir at Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

With the aid of Andillrian, Ipzaag, Selantia, and Anarra, Darrak continues his fight to save Earth and Dragonath from the destruction of Halla Magic. But after the appearance of a dragon who could change the tide of war in their favor, Darrak learns that not everyone’s oath to protect him was genuine. Deserted by two of his companions and facing a cunning and powerful army, Darrak realizes the enemy forces no longer answer to Mionee.

 A darker power has emerged from the shadows.

Payton Niemel has returned, and his intense hatred for Darrak’s ancestors remains. He will stop at nothing to finish what he began centuries before; to destroy the Keera bloodline and claim dominance over all of Dragonath. And this time, he has the power to see it done.

Cover Reveal!

Here it is, everyone! The final cover for Awakening by Andi O’Connor coming in Fall 2014!

 The color palette really reflects the darkness of the book, and the subject matter brings out the various forms and themes of ‘awakening’ – some obvious, some much more subtle. Kudos to Damonza.com for perfectly capturing the essence and feel we were looking for as well as finding unique ways to incorporate many of our ideas!


What do you think of the cover? What does it say to you? Does it get you interested in reading Awakening? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
