The GOOD news is that we have an upcoming release of the 2nd book in Andi O’Connor’s YA fantasy series The Vaelinel Trilogy. YAY! *does a happy dance*

The BAD news is that due to issues with the formatter, it still hasn’t gone to print and we don’t have an official release date. 😦

Happy Release Day!

Retribution - Ebook SmallRetribution is now available! In celebration, how about a little teaser! This is from the opening scene. Enjoy!


“Again!”

Juriel obeyed. Purple lightning burst from the palms of her hands and bounced harmlessly off of Jae’s shield. Sparks illuminated the tiny room already heavy with the burnt metallic scent of magic.

Jae slithered to his left. Juriel followed his movements, trying to anticipate his next action. His green eyes bore into her, not betraying even the slightest hint of his intentions.

“Again!” Jae barely finished the command when the deep purple lightning once again slammed against his defenses. Unlike Juriel’s previous attempts, the last attack caused his outer shields to quiver. Her magic was more focused. Instead of allowing the bolts to hit him at various points, some missing the mark all together, she’d concentrated her power. All four bolts hit his defenses within a foot’s radius. Jae smiled inwardly. She was getting stronger.

Moving to his right, Jae returned to his previous position. Without warning, he let out his own attack. Blue fire erupted from his hands. Juriel gasped, recoiling when it slammed against her shields. But then it was Jae’s turn to be surprised. It bounced off Juriel’s defenses and shot back towards his own, hitting them with surprising force. The impact caused him to stagger backward, almost knocking him to the ground.

The fire died and the room filled with smoke. When the air cleared enough to see, Juriel’s reaction wasn’t at all what Jae expected She’d collapsed to her knees, tears streaming down her cheeks.

Editing Finished!

IMG_1132Well, here it is! The final story for Coven finished edited and ready to be added to the pile for formatting! So far we’re staying on schedule and looking toward a tentative release date of August 2015!

That being said, we’d love your input on the interior font! Would you like to see a different font chosen to fit each story or a single font all the way through? Vote below!

Coven

coven

noun 

1. a meeting of witches
2. a company of 13 witches
3. an anthology of fantasy stories from gifted authors all over the world published by Purple Sun Press
Word Origin
C16: probably from Old French covin group, ultimately from Latinconvenīre to come together; compare convent
(if you couldn’t guess, #3 isn’t an ‘official’ definition, but it’s our favorite!)


So why was the word Coven chosen for the title of our first anthology? In the most basic definition of the word (ignoring the witches, of course) it is a meeting, a gathering. And so is our anthology. But instead of witches coming together, we have a group of seventeen talented fantasy authors. Yet, in a way, they are witches. Not in the ‘dropping a bat’s wing into a boiling cauldron’ sense. (Though…maybe…I don’t really know.) But they’re witches in their own unique special way. They’re wielding their own magic with each and every word they put down on a page. They’re crafting a wondrous story out of nothing but their creativity and imaginations. They’re introducing us to new people and worlds and making us wish it wasn’t fantasy – that it was real.


What do you think of the title? Do you have any ideas for what would make a great cover? Let us know!

Reclamation

“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.
