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.

Pre-Order Silevethiel!

DSC_1076Happy Friday, everyone! This is a quick update to let you know the new release date for Silevethiel is December 24th! There was a huge headache with the distributor, but I’m glad the issue has been resolved and the date is finalized. The publication of my second book is just as exciting as the first, perhaps even more so because I published this one myself. The experience has been challenging but also extremely gratifying. I want to thank all of you for your constant support and understanding. I couldn’t have done it without you!

For those of you who may be interested, Silevethiel is now available for Pre-Order on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble! Enjoy!

Silevethiel Release Update

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but due to a clerical error at the distributor ‘s office, the official release of Silevethiel has been pushed back for another 3 to 4 weeks. I will keep all of you up to date and let you know as soon as the hardback is available via Amazon, B&N, etc. Until then, you can purchase the hardback for 10% off the retail price at SquareMarket. If you’re looking for that special holiday gift for your favorite fantasy fan, signed copies of Silevethiel can be purchased HERE! It is also available as an eBook at Amazon, B&N, and Kobo.

Thank you for your continued support, and happy reading!

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!
