Out & About

Setting up at the Rosemont College Book Festival yesterday! It was a bit chilly, but otherwise a great day! I enjoyed meeting some new fans and answering questions about my writing! I’ll post a video of me reading from Redemption soon!

Huddled in the shadows, Jae watches while one of the Mé’Draak brands his cellmate as a slave before viciously dragging him from the room. Feeling the weight of the metal collar around his neck, Jae is left alone to contemplate his own fate. Will the afternoon session finally Break him? Will it kill him? Or will he end up like the boy, a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?

Will Jae ever be free, or will he end up a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?

“Familiar themes of O’Connor’s within the story also are presented, dealing with equality, human rights, and feelings of self worth. All in all, a great read, highly recommended, and a great way to get into what Andi O’Connor has to offer!” -Ed (Goodreads)

We Want More!

Happy Monday, everyone! Redemption has been getting some awesome ratings and reviews! It recently receive 8 reviews from Indie Book Reviews, 6 were 5-star and 2 were 4-star! The only complaint was that it was so good they wanted more! It is a short story (only 18 pages on Kindle) but it’s packed with empathy, backstory, and action. For just $0.99 on Amazon, it’s a great way to introduce yourself to my writing and is an awesome option for those of you who don’t have a lot of free time! And, for all those who want more of Jae and the Mé’Draak, another short story is in the works! The 2nd story in The Legacy of Ilvania, I hope to have it published in June!

“To make us as the readers connect to a character so that we care is hard to do, yet Andi O’Connor does it perfectly.” -Karen Indie Book Reviews

For all of you who are fans of The Lost Heir, and are waiting with baited breath for the 2nd book, I am putting the finishing touches on Awakening and will start the first round of edits this week! Be sure to keep posted for updates, contests, and sneak peeks!

Sláinte!

Redemption FREE on Amazon!

Redemption_3DHappy Thursday, everyone! If you couldn’t guess from the post title, Redemption is FREE today on Amazon Kindle, and just in time for some awesome weekend reading!

On a side note, Redemption got its first review yesterday, and it was a 5-star rating! It really is a lovely, touching review and it was wonderful to know that a reader could experience so much emotion in a short story (especially one that I wrote!) It was also most touching to read in the review that he is a loyal fan and has read both The Lost Heir and Silevethiel. Knowing that I am beginning to build a fan base is incredible and something I had only dreamed of not too long ago. Thank you, Ed, for reading and enjoying my work, and thank you to all of you who have (or will) pick up one of my books. You are why I sit down in front of my notebook every day and write. You are why I strive to put out the best writing I can so you may have the most thrilling adventure possible. You are what keeps me motivated to keep trying when the words won’t come. Thank you.

Sláinte!
Andi

~Please, let me die first.

Huddled in the shadows, Jae watches while one of the Mé’Draak brands his cellmate as a slave before viciously dragging him from the room. Feeling the weight of the metal collar around his neck, Jae is left alone to contemplate his own fate. Will the afternoon session finally Break him? Will it kill him? Or will he end up like the boy, a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?

 

(Looking for the ePub version for Nook, Kobo, Smashwords, etc? Don’t worry, it’s on it’s way! In the meantime listen to Andi read an excerpt from Redemption in the Readings & Refreshments section on her Website or check out some of her other Books!)

Cover Reveal – Redemption!

Hello everyone! I’ve been waiting to be able to share the cover for Redemption with you, and that day is finally here! I actually had difficulty choosing between two completely badass covers. They both caught the feel of Redemption perfectly, but because of the more global meaning of this cover (and with the wonderful input of some close friends) I decided on this one. What do you think? Does it pique your interest?

Redemption is the first short story in the dark fantasy series The Legacy of Ilvania and will be available in eBook in March! Check out an excerpt from the opening scene or listen to me read a selection in the Readings & Refreshments section on the Home Page of my new website.

Sláinte!

Hardbacks Are Here!

I got the hardbacks of Silevethiel yesterday and they look (and smell) awesome! I know they are more difficult to sell than paperbacks, but I just couldn’t resist. To me, there’s nothing like the look and feel of a hardback! When purchasing books, I’d seek out hardbacks whenever possible, regardless of the author. What about you? Do you find yourself to be a collector of Hardbacks, or do you prefer paperback or eBook? Does the author or book make a difference in which format you purchase? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

A voice penetrated Irewen’s deep sleep.

Her father said only one word, her name, but he was so desperate in his calling that she was immediately pulled from her slumber. She woke, searching in vain for the man she knew wouldn’t be there, couldn’t be there. Sorrow filled her heart anew when he didn’t answer her silent plea. But amidst the all too familiar grief, there flowered a warm bubble of joy.

She had heard his voice, and she had not forgotten.
