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?

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!

Rosemont College 2014

Keep it Coming!

There’s already been a number of submissions for the PSP fantasy anthology! I didn’t expect such a large and quick response and am thrilled so many of you want to be included in what I know will be an awesome compilation of the best fantasy short stories out there. I’m especially looking forward to reading your submissions and will start on them this weekend.

My vision is for this anthology to not only introduce new and little known writers to the world, but to create a book which will have something in it for all lovers of Fantasy. Because of this, the selection process will be lengthy, and I hope to include stories which showcase the wide spectrum of what the fantasy genre has to offer.

So, be creative, get writing, and keep those submissions coming!

Now Accepting Submissions!

Well, the time has finally come for Purple Sun Press to accept submissions!

Now, before you all start sending me your 150,000 word epic fantasy novels, submissions are only open for short stories in Fantasy and all its sub-genres.

OK, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, the idea of this project is to introduce new and lesser-known fantasy authors to readers by including their work in an awesome Fantasy short-story compilation! I want to help gifted fantasy writers get their work out in the world to be enjoyed! Stories submitted should be between 1,000 and 7,500 words and must fall into the Fantasy genre. Depending on the length and quality of submissions, approximately 10 to 20 stories will be chosen to be included in the Fantasy short-story compilation (title yet to be determined) to be published in both eBook and print.

Check out the full Submission Guidelines.

So all you fantasy writers, get your creative juices flowing and submit your stories! LET’S DO THIS!

“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_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
